Mischief Managed

Run through the walls, get on the train,
Fasten your seatbelt for the journey to begin
A journey unlike others, with fun no less,
Starting, when you board the HOGWARTS EXPRESS.

Get Sorted into your Houses for the House Cup you should win,
Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin
And start living your life as a wizard or a witch,
Get on your firebolts for a game of Quidditch.

Come on, get up, Start off with your lessons,
Transfiguration, Charms or some pitiful potions
Pick up your wands, SWISH and FLICK, but ahh…
Don’t forget to say it correctly, ‘’Wingardium Leviosa’’

Beware of Professor Trelawney and her vain,
To make you believe that you’ve got the grin,
Stay away, and into trouble don’t get sailed,
Or you may get “Killed or Worse, Expelled”.

Present Dobby with a sock and make him free,
Be friends with Hagrid, the keeper of the keys
Don’t believe the rat, run to the shrieking shack,
Before the Dementor’s kiss is performed, Save Sirius Black.

Prepare yourself to fight the death eaters,
And try to save both of the twin beaters,
Look out for the “half-blood Prince “, be brave like him,
And don’t let Voldemort disturb you in your dreams.

But only if we received our Hogwarts Letters,
We would have been in the Potter World, much better,
Until then, bear this unmagical world, dear Potterhead’s,
Until then, say it together, “Mischief Managed”
