Kill the Spare
Title: Flight Song
Warnings/Ratings: 1st/2nd Years -- None
Summary: During the second war, many must leave their homes and run for their lives. What must they feel, forced to hide from a government that hates their very existence?
Reason for Recommendation: I was just gobsmacked when I read this poem. It's so emotive and well-structured, and it was a perfect representation of its theme: running from Death Eaters and the danger they represented, all the while wondering why it was happening. The fear and despair and the terror and eventual hope are just so very well written. Gah!
