Supernatural Advisory #034: Rabbit’s Foot

Carrying a rabbit’s foot possessing certain attributes may provide enhanced protection from unfortunate events.

CONTEXT

Multiple sources report that carrying the left hind foot of a rabbit acquired under specific conditions awards the holder with good luck. Since rabbits live underground in burrows, they are believed to communicate with the spirits of the underworld. The rabbit must be captured in a cemetery under a full moon, and the foot must be cut off while the rabbit is still alive.

Rumor holds that the foot will be more powerful if the rabbit is killed on an actual grave.

FIELD NOTES

lyrics

In a cemetery
Voices will carry
Solemn and often grim
Sympathetic magic
Useful yet tragic
Binds a dismembered limb

Don’t you dare get caught without it
If prophecy is true
The remedy is

Silver mounted dyed on a keychain
A graveyard rabbit’s left hind foot
Killed at midnight under a full moon
Tears streamed down as my hand shook
I’m never doing that again

More or less uncertain
Throw back the curtain
Fortune or certain doom
Violent pornographic
Bury the hatchet
Floor of the cutting room

Second thoughts still linger
I run my finger
Through the discolored fur
History advances
I’ll take my chances
Lay bare the jugular
