I very much liked this... especially the "which was cute." That just struck me as hilarious. Plus, I can vividly imagine Slughorn and Hagrid singing this drunkenly, waving and leaning on each other with tankards in their hands. :D Very well done!
YAY! a great poem, one to just make you laugh, and it really fits well into the sixth book, I can imagine Hagrid and Slughorn bealching this out drunkenly!

I read it with smile and with eyes full of mirth and thought great verse, by Gad.
It won a prize for sure as it richly deserved but it wasn't the first which was sad.
WOW, this was amazing!! It should have so won over "Raconteur"!! In fact, it was probably even better than the other runner up "A Ghost Story" (which was also better than "Raconteur"). The rhymes were amazing, but the rhythm was even BETTER!! Amazing! Very few people have good rhythm. I myself do sonnets (I have one on this site called "Sirius's Azkaban"), but this poem here is an even greater achievement than one sonnet. Seriously, I've never seen better in fanfiction! Please keep it up, and you may become the next Shakespeare :D
Great poem! And congratulations on getting runner-up in QSQs, I can see why, as this is a fantastic poem!
I love the clever way that you have made everything fit together, both in syllables and in rhyme. My favourite parts are the "which was..." parts at the end of each stanza...these are great!
I agree with what the others say about speech marks for Odo...and another thing, I don't know if its intentional/just me seeing this, but the whole poem is in two line 'paragraohs' (like a story) and not in stanzas. Capital letters still shwo starts of lines, but it was just a bit hard to read...
Oh! *tear* That was wonderful. And hillarious - you made me fall out of my chair. *pouts* And... Wow. How original is this, and how excellent! Great work. Loved it... I've never seen a take on this, and I doubt I'll see such as good again. Good job with Quicksilver!
That was wonderful fun to read! You must have worked very hard on this poem, fleshing out the story and keeping it in form. I agree with the review that suggested setting the dialogue in quotation marks, or maybe italics - it would be easier to follow, given the other quirks of the form. But once you get the hang of the rhythm, it was just so fun to read! Great job! ~Gina :)
This poem is amazing! I love the way you managed to keep the same pattern as seen in the book. It had just the perfect mix of irony and seriousness, so that it was funny, but not in bad taste. Well done ^^
Excellent story of the brave knight named Odo. It rhymed really well and flowed pretty good. The only suggestion I can make is to put in quotations when Odo is speaking. I can see a lot of effort went into this (judging by the length) and I tip my cap to you for telling the tale of the brave knight named Odo.
