Wow, the ending makes you feel so much. I love how the poem spends its time getting you to love the butterflies so by the end, you are deeply impacted by their deaths. Beautiful poem!

This is incredible! We can glean so much of the relationship between the father and the narrator simply from the few line towards the end, through that one act of discipline. This inspires me! Thank you for sharing this poem.

Horrifying. I had to read it twice just to accept what it was saying. But the end is also so relatable that you can't help but feel for the kid too.
