What They Don’t Teach at Hogwarts
A magic wand won’t keep off the rain
As well as an old raincoat.
A frayed raincoat won’t float on water
Like a serviceable rowboat.
An enchanted boat won’t take to the sky
The way a waterfowl can,
But talking geese are far too silly
To come up with a four-year plan.
A clever plan won’t ensure you pass
Your alchemy tests at school.
Acing exams won’t get you a job,
Yet it’s still a good thing, as a rule.
Getting a job may not make you happy,
But the way it work’s kind of funny.
A job ensures some order in life,
And maybe some much-needed money.
Money means you won’t have to rob.
Ditch the wand and get a real job.
