Sorcery in the Twenty-First Century by Susie Gharib

There are no pins with which to torture dolls,
no potions extracted from a viper’s blood,
no drugging to induce paralysis,
no incantations to make one hallucinate,
no animal slaughtering to appease the gods,
no sexual dalliance with the demonic lot.
Maleficium is an electronic cult.

They can bleed your name on a digital blade,
frame you with Lucifer on a hot blind date,
rearrange your features with a mouse’s aid,
make you the laughing stock of the entire age.
