Hello all! The poetry that shows up in this fic is based off of Dr. Seuss' "Fox in Socks" book, which was my favorite when I was a kid because of the outrageous tongue-twisters. While I am not the genius that Dr. Seuss was, I think you'll enjoy the turns of Harry's poetry in this fic. It's even more amusing if you create a mental picture for each line, lol. Enjoy!

Snape sees bees have shape.
Snape frees bees from tape.
Please, sir. I don't think this tape is real, sir.
My eyes only gape at this scape, sir.
I see all the towels and bees, sir.
I hear all those owls and teas, sir.
But I'm confused, Professor Snape, sir.
I'm sorry, Professor Snape, sir.
Here's a simple potion to make.
Here's a simple potion that's fake.
He spews blue grape.

A giant hand smacking his desk brought Harry Potter out of reverie. "POTTER! What is this nonsense you're copying down instead of notes?"
"Uh, it's nothing Professor Snape, sir. I just-"
"No excuses Potter! Twenty points from Gryffindor and detention at 8:00 p.m. sharp in my office. Since you like writing poetry so well, you can write a poem using for me using words like 'Amortentia' and 'Veritiserum.' Now get to work!" he growled, smacking Harry's desk one last time for good measure.
Fuck on duck.
Truck on buck.
Duck will fuck with buck in truck.
Buck will fuck while-
Sorry about the profanity at the end; I just like the idea of Harry taking his anger at Snape and setting it to poetry as an act of defiance. Anyway, this was something rather different for me to write, so please take a moment to let me know if you liked it. Thanks for reading!
