We have yet to come out with a line of Law Keep Away products here at Modern Conjure, but this piece is currently inspiring us to do so. The verses are tongue-in-cheek, especially “An honest life you need not abide, if in a conjure bag these herbs you hide.” Although Law Keep Away is often used to conceal some shady business, it is also used without guilt among minorities who fear being profiled. When my lovers travel through certain parts of the country I feel safer knowing that along with some general curios for protection they also have a bit of Law Keep Away to protect them from officers who don’t take kindly to Queer California Warlocks. Also, it’s a good thing to have if your spiritual practices involve activities that the law has come to frown on, such as going to beaches or graveyards at night. If you take advice from the spell above there are a couple additional rules to follow. First, be sure to ‘feed’ your conjure bag at least once a week. This can be done with a bit of cologne (I suggest Hoyt’s), applied to one or both sides of the bag in a five spot pattern which looks like the five dot pattern you see on dice. Secondly, keep you conjure bag hidden. Don’t let others see it or touch it. For purposes of law keep away it is best worn near your waist, so pinned to the band of your underwear works well.
