04 - Sid N' Nancy

Rating: 5.0


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 claim 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 from this crazy world
He was a punk rocker, she a groupie tart
They couldn't live without, they couldn't live apart

I absolutely love this poem! It would make part of a fab song, sounds like the lyrics of a baby shambles song or something.

You're right to be sceptical about 'punk' Baloo, but it wasn't really about zips, safety pins and self-harming....good stuff nicola ~s~
