Lord of the Flies

A poem based on former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland.98c742dfa14ff28bfade9e8784ff859b

Down in the depths
Where you can’t get away
Stuck in the vaseline
Like flies gone astray
Look all around
What do you see?
Is anything there
To help set you free?
Time and again
You’ve pulled yourself out
Even though each time
Left a little more doubt
That next time it happened
You could do it again
Every time you went down
You got deeper in
Been down there so long
Playin’ lord of the flies
Before you hold court
Do you say your goodbyes?
