Raise Your Butterbeers
By: Noah Eaton
7/20/07

Holy Avada Kedavra, the moment has arrived,
to find out once and for all if Harry Potter survived,
so let’s all hit the bookstores like a bunch of Dementors,
and have a release party with games and magic galore.

Our cheeks will be brighter than Hogsmeade at Christmastime,
wearing purple cloaks, black pointed hats with yew wands held high,
joking around with nose-biting teacups, Nosebleed Nougat,
and all the other Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes magic tricks.

We’ll swill gallons of pumpkin juice and munch on Chocolate Frogs,
and obtain all the dark arts secrets from Flourish and Blotts,
we’ll play exploding snaps, gobstones, even some wizards chess,
and listen to each smash hit by Celestina Warbeck.

After midnight, in the ice skating rink we’ll play Quidditch,
I’ve got wicked Seeker skills, bound to snatch the Golden Snitch,
then I’ll show off to all my friends my Cleansweep Seventeen,
and gossip on and on over Tom Riddle’s diary.

     

Then we’ll hit the dance floor, drop it like a Swedish Short-Snout,
and learn how to harvest puffapods with Professor Sprout,
but be careful, or else, you know where you’ll wind up being!
(At St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies!)

We’ll chat about the current events in “The Quibbler”,
party hard ’til we’re as numb as Boris the Bewildered,
Tom Clancy fans probably think I’m H.R Hufflepuff,
but tonight I feel like I have won the Triwizard Cup.

Then we’ll drink unicorn blood, fresh from the witch’s cauldron,
like Volde…I mean, He Whose Name Must Never Be Spoken,
then we’ll grow beards as long and white as Albus Dumbledore,
and visit Hagrid’s petting zoo and pet a manticore.

There’s fans pouring in all around, drawing the reporters,
some probably came in from Platform Nine and Three-Quarters,
holy gulping gargoyles, this gathering’s got some zing,
it ain’t over ‘til the painting of the fat lady sings!

     

Holy Avada Kedavra, the moment has arrived,
to find out once and for all if Harry Potter survived,
so let’s all hit the bookstores like a bunch of Dementors,
and have a release party with games and magic galore.

(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Shake your Ukranian Ironbelly!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Hold your Hippogriffs,
this Grand Hallow’s Ball’s just beginning!)
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Shake your Hungarian Horntail!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Let those magic wands flail!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Shake your Romanian Longhorn!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
All across the magic dance floor!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
Pump it like a Pygmy Puff!
(Raise your Butterbeers!)
All you Harry Potter buffs!

     

It ain’t over,
‘til the painting of the fat lady sings!

Hear, hear! *butter beer raised in salute*  

All in good fun, Mistletoe Angel. I am glad the wait is over and we can get back to our O.W.L's and N.E.W.T.'s.  All this hoopla has been quite a distraction.

I am waiting on tenterhooks for that last book! And judging from this poem I'm not the only one!

*shocked*
Drinking unicorn blood?  You must have been touched by a Dementor to even think of such a thing.

*giggle*

Very nice.

Noah, we just got back from Disneyworld and were fortunate enough to be there the day they did a "trial run" of the new Harry Potter ride.  It was awesome, and I was not sure if we were moving or the rooms, until I researched.  We were on a robotic rollercoaster ride that I will NEVER forget.  It was worth the trip down to be on that!  We had a butterbeer in the villiage and got to know some of the Harry Potter characters, and now we are hooked!  Madly reading all the books, viewing videos, etc. LOL  Here you go, this is the castle.
