04 - Sid n' Nancy


He was a punk rocker, she a groupie tart
They couldn’t live without, they couldn’t live apart
Sometimes the love consumes the fuel too fast
And when it does you know it’ll never last
The drugs became the captor of their young lives
The drug became the source of their sad demise.

Nancy Laura Spungen, her full given name
The girlfriend and victim of vicious was her clam to fame
A psychotic girl from Moreland Pennsylvania
Would one day end up part of loves punk rock mania

John Simon Ritchie a quite boy under vicious skin
Only girlfriend Nancy did he ever let in
Leaving behind myths at the age of 21
Vicious solidified his fame by dying so very young


He was a punk rocker, she a groupie tart
They couldn’t live without, they couldn’t live apart
Nancy put to sleep by Ritchie’s own knife
Plagued with guilt Ritchie then takes his life

On paper he penned his last thoughts of his ‘baby girl’
Then left sleeping as he drifted fro this crazy world
He was a punk rocker, she a groupie tart
They couldn’t live without, they couldn’t live apart

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
