Black Phillip


It’s time to by artsy and include a poem. It’s a song, actually, from the masterpiece film The Witch (2016).

The film is so lovely and inspiring, it’s hard to believe that it exists.

Black Phillip, Black Phillip 
A crown grows out his head,
Black Phillip, Black Phillip 
To nanny queen is wed.
Jump to the fence post,
Running in the stall.
Black Phillip, Black Phillip 
King of all.

Black Phillip, Black Phillip 
King of sky and land,
Black Phillip, Black Phillip 
King of sea and sand.
We are ye servants,
We are ye men.
Black Phillip eats the lions
From the lions’ den.
Mercy and Jonas, “Black Phillip” from The Witch (18:50–20:00)
