More Lord of the Flies. I’m sorry, I promise everything will be back to normal soon.
This one was for English class, so it’s a bit darker. And more grotesque. (I had to look at the inside of a pig’s mouth, so you do, too, alright?) And that’s Simon in there, to be clear. This was based on that scene with the Lord. (Have you figured out what my favorite part of the book was yet?)
So I was talking to Malcolm on Wednesday about Lord of the Flies and the relationship between being a sociopath and being mentally deranged (which is that, you know, if you’re a sociopath, you’re mentally deranged, but if you’re mentally deranged, you could be a sociopath, or you could be the sort who has tea parties with imaginary people) and I was trying to use Simon as proof of hope for humanity, what with all the crazies on the island.
Malcolm: He talked to the Lord of the Flies.
Me: Yeah, I know, but that was apparently metaphorical.
Malcolm: No, it was a pig’s head. Simon’s just crazy.
Me: …Yeah, okay. Maybe Simon’s the tea-parties-with-imaginary-people sort.
Malcolm: Maybe he had a tea party with the Lord of the Flies.
Mr. Golding, I am so sorry.
