VIII

Iím really more of an herb doctor than a wizard
I donít claim to solve unsolvable problems
instead I cure I calm the troubled spirit
I can expel a demon from a body
where I lay my hand it goes in up to the elbow
but I donít raise up rotten cadavers
the whole sublime art of resurrection
I leave exclusively to the Divine Master.
