Rotten pierced canes,
home of worms and vermin.
Wisps of the Holy Company,
evil eye, black witchcraft,
scent of the dead, thunder and lightning.
maws of the satyr and foot of the rabbit.
howl of the dog, omen of death.Sinful tongue of the bad woman
married to an old man.
Satan and Beelzebub’s Inferno,
fire of the burning corpses,
will-o’-the-wisp on the night of St Sylvester
mutilated bodies of the indecent ones,
farts of the infernal asses.Roar of the enraged sea,
of shipwreck omen,
useless belly of the unmarried woman,
speech of the cats in heat,
dirty turf of the wicked born goat
and twisted horn of the billy-goat.
With this pot
I will pump the flames of this fire
which looks like that from Hell,
and witches will be `purified
from all their misdeeds.
Some of them will flee
riding their brooms,
going to bathe
in the Finisterre sea.
Hear! Hear the roars
They are the witches purifying themselves
in these spiritual flames
And when this beverage
goes down our throats,
we will get free of the evil
of our soul
and of any charm.
Forces of air, earth, sea and fire,
to you I make this call:
if it’s true that you have more power
clean from wrongdoing our land.
