Oudewater Weigh House
This Way Comes
With Halloween almost upon us and magic in the air,
My friend Ruxi and I visited a weigh house and thought we would share.
We traveled to Oudewater on a bright sunny day,
But what lay before us, neither could say.
Canals, leaning trees, we followed the winding path
Driving back through time when people took their wrath.
Men, women and children, 1000’s under trial
Thought to be witches, their lives had taken a spiral.
Burn them, cut them, see if they bleed,
Weigh them, let’s see if they are light enough to fly, indeed.
The Oudewater Weigh House became famous that’s true
For finding these witches were just people… making stew… not brew.
If you’d like to find out if you are a witch or not
Just drive to Oudewater and give that scale all you’ve got!
