1. To make a sudden, sharp, distinct sound;
Like to crack, as a whip upon the ground

2. To click, as a mechanism or as the jaws
Or teeth coming together without applause

3. To move, strike, shut, catch with sharp sound
As a door, lid, lock or a quick short pound

4. To act or move with quick, abrupt motion
Like snapping to attention as in devotion

5. To break suddenly or a cracking sound,
As something slender or brittle are found

6. To make a photo without formal posing,
7. To make a quick bite; a sudden mouth closing

8. To utter a quick, sharp sentence or speech,
A command, reproof, or retort making breech

9. To be radiant; sparkle; flash, as the eyes
Speech of wit as well as awfully wise

10. To seize with or take, buy or obtain
As with a quick bite without refrain

11. To secure, judge or vote in much haste
As snapping a bill in Congress ['tis much waste]

Of course SNAP can be other parts too
Such as nouns and adjectives to name a few

Phrases like: This job’s a snap to be sure,
Or an unexpected cold snap, get out the fur

Snapdragon; snap lock or just a snap bean
Many are its uses if you see what I mean

It is amazing how many definitions there are for "snap", and you've creatively woven them into a poem. I had to smile at a lot of your lines. Fun stuff here!

Very clever and enjoyable poem. I think the topic was covered! Good job.

Nice rhyming and I can't think of a definition you missed! Nice job!
