How High Can a Witch Fly?

How high can a witch fly

When she's on her broom?

Higher than the clouds,

Higher than the moon?


Can she fly up past the birds

And out into space

To cast her spell

On an alien race?


Up to the stars

And far past the sun,

Could a witch fly that high

With a broom under her bum?


You'll find out soon if the tales are true

Because there's a knock at the door

And a cackle before

A witch cries out

She's looking for you


“To answer your question

I used to fly

Higher than the clouds,

Higher than the moon

But one too many Pumpkin pies

Has weighed my means of transport down

Like a lead balloon”


She said before she flew

Slowly back into the night

Barely making it over the gate

She was a heavy witch alright

And this was a fact

Which greatly affected

The altitude of her flight.
