With the Dark Mark Branded on Your Arm
‘With the Dark Mark Branded on Your Arm’ is a filk of ‘With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm,’ a much-loved comic/macabre song about the ghost of Anne Boleyn from the English Music Hall tradition. It’s the sort of thing that Dr. Demento would play on his annual Halloween show on American radio. My version, which preserves rather more of the macabre than the comic elements, is written from the point of view of the elder Malfoys as they try to warn Draco what he has gotten himself into – although, as I try to show in the final chorus, by this point in the tale they too are beginning to experience some misgivings about where they have placed their loyalties. – WeenyOwl
