Brave Matilda

Under the old wizard's gaze, students usually whither.
But not brave Matilda,
who kept her wits with her,
when he asked her,
"With which little witch did you switch?"

"Switch what?" she replied,
looking straight in his eyes.
And although he was easily three times her size,
he seemed smaller than she was
for a moment, and then 
he coughed and said, "I wondered whether..."
But then he just trailed off.
And he walked off.

And we all dispersed,
Wondering if somehow
The old man she'd cursed.
