William Golding Was a One Hit Wonder


William Golding was a One Hit Wonder

I am on an island.
Not Ian Fleming's James Bond island.
Just an island all alone.

An island of thought
more than anything else.

No Piggy here to speak of,
or his damn glasses.

William Golding was a one hit wonder
just like Billy Ray Cyrus.

Yes yes, his rites of passage,
but not on my island.

Everything is endangered here.
The truth most of all.
