my healing powers

are so potent

never doubt my sovereignty

all your accusations

slide off me

trickling down,

medicinal water flowing

into a bottle

to cure the ills

your defaming mouth

spills into your own blood

Inspired by this little tidbit posted by HooklandGuide on Twitter:
'In the late 17th century, among the cunning folk there rose a class known as 'wonder-doctors'. Renowned as healers, their list of clients included the most powerful families in the county.  Any accusation of witchcraft bounced off them like rain against woodland canopy.'
