|CHAPTER 11 Ah yes.
2 The asmart ones.
3 The ones who have gotten the best grades,
4 And the highest btest scores,
5 The ones who have the brightest prospects for the future,
6 Because the world is your oyster.
7 Isn't that how it goes?
8 Isn't that what they've told you?
9 Of course it is.
10 So why do you need any advice from a Harrier,
11 Especially from a lowly cParish Beacon,
12 Like dme?
CHAPTER 21 Maybe you don't need any advice from me.
2 Maybe it will all work out,
4 Although I feel you should know that
I was like you,
Long before I ever heard of Harry,
Back when I was young and smart,
When the world was my oyster,
Which it was until the day I discovered my oyster didn't have any pearls in it,
Because the swine had gotten there firt.
|And so I am going to share with you what little I know,
Whether you listen or not,
Because I feel for you,
And I fear for you,
Especially if you do not adopt the Way of Harry,
Because if you don't,
They will take you apart,
All at once,
Or a little bit at a time,
Until there is nothing left of you,
Nothing, that is, but bitterness and pain.
Are you listening, my children?
I know that I do not sound like a committed follower of Harry,
But I must assure you I am,
Even if I cannot stop thinking completely,
And even if I wake up at three in the morning from time to time,
Wondering what I might have done to stop Harry,
Before he conquered the Most Chosen Nation on Earth,
And put us all to sleep.
But when I wake up like that,
Sweating in my bed,
I force myself to go back to sleep,
Because I never had a chance at stopping Harry,
