My Wand Has Broken

from by Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff



© 2008 Maya Bohnhoff

My wand has broken and soot is raining.

Yes, I've misspoken some magic word.

Hand me that Kleenex or I'll be explaining

Why Dumbledore's phoenix is now a black bird.

Softly your feather floats toward the ceiling.
Poof! goes my pinion and plummets to ground.
My Leviosa gives flight a new meaning:
Professor Flitwick may never come down.

Mine is a bad wand; I wish I could lose it.

Born of a bad tree in a bad wood.

No, please professor, don't ask me to use it!

My spells don't ever turn out as they should.

My wand is broken and should be retired.

But I swear I've spoken no magic phrase.

All that I said was, "Snape should be fired."

Poof! went the prof and set Hogwarts ablaze.
