'Twas The Order of Phoenix, when all through the School

Came the news of a teacher called Umbridge the Fool.

Snape's now so giving, his thoughts he does share.

And Harry now hopes Umbridge decides to be fair.

Gryffindor detentions began with great dread

While JK tucked Snape all snug in his bed.

Albus with his Phoenix and Harry with no clue,

Could not imagine what Tom Riddle would do.

'Tho Ginny could tell him if he would but ask

The brave Gryffindor's just not up to that task.

He'd invade Harry's thoughts though what good would that be?

From what I can tell, there's nothing to see.

'Tho in the pensieve Harry sees through Snape's disguise

Poor Harry's not brave enough to apologize

And where has Harry's nemesis, Draco gone to be?

A line or two—Death Eater? No, The Ministry!

So away to the Ministry, where the brains do play;

Where fools and mysteries are both on display.

The veil hid the best of the book I'm sure,

We'll have to have Loony give us the tour.

And who is this girl who sees things from the dead

Who makes Rita Skeeter seem to be well-read?

So why didn't Harry see a Thestral horse?

In year one and two they weren't written, of course.

Because Harry did see death at one year old

He saw it over again with the Dementers I'm told

And what about Quirrel with his turbaned head?

When Volde left him, I thought he dropped dead.

Can't have Harry and Cho kissing, either. That's trash

Instead he'll tell Ron—on fanfic it'd be slash.

The Twins are the best with their extendable ears.

And the swamp should have long ago drowned Harry's fears.

Though some of the aurors of Phoenix were awesome it's true.

Some of them couldn't tell a house-elf what he should do

When what should I think, but these children will die

Here come the Death Eaters holding wands high.

Vastly out-numbered our intrepid trio will be,

To protect—WHAT! the prophecy of famed Trelawney.

And how did these children hold on so well

When trained wizards to the Death Eaters fell?

At least Voldemort stayed home, He sent Harry instead.

Then what should appear, but Volde, straight out of his head!

I thought the whole reason that Harry went there

Was to keep Volde safe but of the 'seeing' aware.

Harry says: Dark Lord's a title only Death Eaters say

But then, Both Cornelius and Albus, the Order betray.

But maybe Evil Dumbledore would have more appeal,

Because a stupid Dumbledore just didn't seem real.

Perhaps I just missed some monumental clue

But tell me, why didn't the aurors just use the floo?

Snape fearing Umbridge? I don't, for a moment, think so.

But the wizard Voldemort fears apparates exceedingly slow

And couldn't Dumbledore tell after the Maze of last year.

That Harry Potter was not prone to fits of fancy or fear.

So why a whole book based on Dumbledore's lie?

The "too young to know," theme just doesn't fly.

And what did he tell us that he should have already said?

If Harry didn't know, he must be brain dead.

And how many times did you read where Sirius fell,

Saying: "Did he die there? I just couldn't tell."

And why didn't Harry that mirror peruse

The one Sirius gave him, that he didn't use

I think I know, this fan says with a sigh

The true Harry Potter has already died.

'Twas the Order of Phoenix, and all through the land

Came the luster of Money just as she'd planned

Shunted old characters, or new ones, written up quick

And fans think I'm working three years? Are they sick?

It took me all of a day and half of the night.

With Editors breathing down my neck in their fright.

Then, she sprang to her broom, and went straight to the bank

Laughing as if it was just a Slytherin prank.

As she flew out of sight, I thought that I heard her speak.

"Don't worry. Next book, I'll write a whole week!"
