“You don’t wanna mess with Death Powder,” he would say.
It was a secret swamp Vudu recipe. Basically the neutron bomb of rootwork.
Earl recommended only using Death Powder in extreme circumstances.
When there’s no other way.
Death Powder is a distillation of ingredients. Roots collected in the wilds at the dark o’ the moon, gunpowder, brimstone and other stuff.
All ritually charged during a possession ceremony in an old, disused and deserted graveyard.
Earl told how Death Powder was once used in a courthouse.
“Killed the judge stone dead. It was no loss. He was a nasty bastard, a white supremacist dog molester.
There was some black boys on trial. Good boys wrongly accused.
Everyone knew they wasn’t going to get off and were headed for the slammer.
So the Death Powder ritual was done and the powder was thrown right in that nasty judge’s face.
He was dead by nightfall…”
Dark Angel is a leading authority on old rootwork formulas and she’s desperate for me to tell her what the recipe is for Death Powder.
She doesn’t want to use it on anybody.
She just wants to know how it’s made – professional interest.
But I won’t tell her and this makes her riled as hell!
But there are some things you have to keep to yourself…
