Lord of the Flies Summary & Analysis – Thug Notes on BET (Sparky’s Short & Sweets)
What up yo? Today we gettin buck wild Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
When a plane full o’ kidz crash land on an island, things get savage REAL QUICK. Without da rules of society to keep em in check, they go from candy-ass British boys to ice-cold killaz! Erryone buggin bout a monster on da island, but turns out da REAL beast dey gotta tussle wit ain’t nuthin’ mo than da darkness inside all humanity. Shit hits da fan wit lil’ kids gettin merced left and right when a naval officer roll up and be like “da FUCK? Then all dem kids start cryin’. Fo’ real.
Now y’all might be thinkin you way too on top of yo shit to get as savage as deez kids. But hold up shawty. Don’t trip. Dat’s da whole damn point of dis book.
It teachin us dat civilization ain’t nuthin but a mask dat cover up all da whack shit inside our hearts. Fo’ example, deez kids don’t jus’ kill a pig, they rip it’s head off, put it on a stick, and yell “Right up her ass!” Hmm.
Dat same pig called da Lord of the Flies, anotha name for one a’ Satan’s boys Beelzebub.
And like the devil be doin, dat porker’s dome repin all da destruction, decay and otha’ horrible shit inside o’ erryone.
Looks bruh, you might think you know how to act, dat you got God or da rules of society to keep things in line. But once da shit go down, you might see a side of yoself. Ya heard? Catch y’all lata. Peace.
