The Suburbs

You have seen them all around, they are everywhere the Witches and the Warlocks. They follow you when you are walking down the street; they serve you in the supermarket; they take your order in restaurants, muttering curses and incantations if the tip you leave is not big enough.

Of course, they don’t fly around on broomsticks any more, not when EasyJet can get them to most places for a very reasonable fee. Very few of them have green skin or even a hairy wart.

Though they do have a fondness for cats, four cats or above in a semi is a good indicator that there is a high magical coefficient to the light emanating from beneath the garage door in the dead of night.

You would be naive to think that it is just black magic; most of them are white witches. Fortunately the dark path is usually only undertaken by those who enjoy a round of golf or a game of bowls. The Rotary club is teeming with practitioners of the black arts.

Yes beware the witches of suburbia.
