Folks ....
People AREN'T Joking " ... !!!  
  
When They Say I'm ......
    
..... " OUTSPOKEN " .... !!!!!  
    
Sometimes I Say Things ...  
That Leave People ...  
....... " BROKEN " ......... !!!!!!!!  
    
Some People Have Cried ...    
Because of The Way ...  
I Speak About ... " Life " ...  
    
Suffering PAIN ...  
And Dealing With STRIFE ... !!!  
    
But Things That I Say ...  
Are Simple Reflections ...    
On Things In My Sight ...    
    
Sometimes They Are WRONG ... !!!  
Sometimes They Are RIGHT .... !!!!!!!!  
    
But Speaking My Mind ...  
Should NOT Be A CRIME ... !!!!!  
    
My Words Are Designed ...  
To ... Simply Invite ...  
A Place Within Darkness ...  
  
Where ... CLARITY SHINES ... !!!  
And LIGHT Is ... DEFINED ... !!!!!    
    
Words I Now Write ...  
Are Simply Inclined ...  
To ... Lyrically Dine ...  
Recline And Be PRIMED ...  
    
To Do ... What Is WISE ...    
And Pay CLOSE ATTENTION ... !!!  
To REALITY'S ... Signs ... !!!  
    
On ... How To Live ...  
A POSITIVE LIFE ... !!!  
    
I'd Rather DO THAT ... !!!  
Than Live Life To Fight ... ?!?  
    
I'm NOT In A Rush ...  
To ... Lay Down And DIE ... !!!!!  
    
Since I Was A Kid ...  
I've Always Been Quick ...  
To Air My Opinions ...    
And Speak About Things ...  
    
I LOVE TO Enlist ... !!!  
The Use of ... " EXPRESSION "  
It's CLEARLY A Gift ... !!!  
And Now An OBSESSION ... !!!!!  
    
Poems KEEP COMING ... !!!  
Just Like A PROCESSION ... !!!!!  
    
But Some Do NOT Like ... !!!  
The Words I Recite ...    
  
And DON'T Like The Sight ...  
of My Lips ... By A Mic' ... !!!!!  
    
But Hey That's Okay ... !!!  
    
They REALLY Miss Out ...    
At The End of The Day ... !!!    
    
My Wordplay Has ...    
..... " SUBSTANCE " .....  
    
EVEN ...  
When I RAGE ... !!!!!  
    
But NEVER Indulges ...  
In ... Inciting HATE ... !!!!!!  
    
But CLEARLY Reflects ...  
My Mood When IRATE ... !!!!!  
    
But My Moods ...  
Like The Weather ...  
Show CHANGE EVERYDAY ... !!!!!  
    
I Can't Be The Same ...  
And Always Be ... " tame " ... !?!    
    
Those Who Want That ...  
Like ... CONTROLLING Brains ... !!!!!  
    
And CLEARLY Are People ...  
Who ... NEED TO REFRAIN ... !!!!!!!  
From Trying To .... " LIMIT " ....  
What People .... " Should Say " .... !!!  
    
We Need To Be Mindful ...  
of Those Who Relay ...  
A Message That GLORIFIES ...    
.... DEVIANT Ways .... !!!!!!  
    
Those Who Spread HATE ...  
And MURDEROUS Traits ...    
SHOULD BE LOCKED AWAY ... !!!!!  
    
But That's Just MY VIEW ...  
At The End of The Day ... !!!  
    
Freedom of Speech ...  
Is ... BEAUTY To Me ... !!!  
    
NOT Trying To Teach ... !!!    
Or Trying To Preach ... !!!  
    
We ALL Have A Mouth ...  
I'd Rather Use ... " SPEECH " ... !!!  
Than ... PHYSICAL CLOUTS ...    
That KNOCK People DOWN ... !!!!!  
    
Brainpower FEEDS ....  
Off Wordplay That SPEAKS ...  
To Souls Within People ...    
Who Choose ... NOT TO SEE ... !!!!!  
    
A World Where We STOP ...  
Our ... Freedom of Speech ... !!!  
    
Music Is ... SO GREAT ...    
When Wordplay Relates ...  
A Feeling That TOUCHES ...  
And SENSUALLY CLUTCHES ...  
    
SOMETHING ... DEEP Inside ... !!!  
And HELPS PAIN ... Subside .............................................  
    
This Is One Reason ....    
I Now LOVE TO WRITE ... !!!!!  
    
Because My Expression ...  
HELPS CHANNEL Aggression ... !!!  
    
And Helps Me To STRENGTHEN ...  
My Use of .... Expression .... !!!  
    
My ... OUTSPOKEN Nature ... 
Has Brought Me My TROUBLES ... !!!!!  
    
But Has Been My SAVIOUR ... !!!  
And Keeps Me From FORCES ...  
    
DARKER Than Vader's ... !!!  
  
GREEN Is The Colour ...  
of YES ... My Light Sabre ... !!!!!  
    
GREEN As In Country ...  
Where Animals ROAM .................................................................­  
    
EXPRESSING Themselves ...  
In .... EVERY Zone .... !!!  
    
We Sit And Watch Them ...    
When They Use EXPRESSION ...    
And CANNOT DEFEND ...  
    
The Vision of Them ...  
Behind A ZOO Fence ... !!!  
    
Don't Get It Confused ...  
I'm Simply Suggesting ...    
That Airing Our Views ...    
Is SURELY  A Thing ...  
We Should NOT REFUSE ... !!!  
    
EVEN When People ...    
Say Things That ABUSE ... !!!  
    
Because You Then KNOW ...  
If You Can Be ... COOL ...    
    
And Even If NOT ...  
May Help You To ... Choose ...  
    
A ... POSITIVE Way ...    
To RESOLVE Your Issues ... !!!  
    
Being OUTSPOKEN ...    
Is NOT Always Good ... !!!!!  
    
But Does Help A Person ...    
To Give You Some Clues ...  
On What ... Fuels Their Mood ...    
  
And May Give You PROOF ...  
of What They're Into ...    
    
I Now Prefer THAT ... !!!  
Than Being With ... " Those " ...    
Who Simply .... " Sit Back " .... !!!  
And Wait For The Chance  ...  
To Make An ATTACK ... !!!!!  
    
What Is It THEY LACK ... ?  
That Makes Them DO THAT ... ?!?  
    
Some Folks Are Like This ...  
And That's Just A FACT ... !!!!!  
    
These Are The People ...  
.... Whose Words ....  
  
I'm Now ... " Quoting " ...  
    
And NO I'm NOT JOKING ... !!!!!  
    
These Are The People ...  
Who Say .... " Virgil's " ....  
    
.... " OUTSPOKEN " .... !!!!!!!!
Hmmm, what to say .... ???

I'm an outspoken fella, through usage of letters,
sometimes an upsetter, so don't get irate
because of wordplay, that's from yesterday .....

Don't let my words fret ya ....
Artists should know ... BETTER ... !!!!
I'm ...
SICK of ... "RESTRICTIONS" .... !!!!!    
    
"DON'T Say THAT ... !!!"    
And ... "DON'T Say THIS ... !!!"    
    
What's The Point of Having Lips ... !?!    
    
DON'T Run Over Six Minutes ...    
RESTRICTIONS On How I Write Scripts ... !!!!!!    
    
DON'T Drive To TOWN ... !!!    
Congestion Now ....    
Restricts Movement ...    
    
"So, give us pounds !!!"    
    
Government ... " CLOWNS " ...    
Just ... Make Me FROWN ... !!!!!    
    
I Wish THEY USED ...    
... " The Underground " ... !!!    
    
They'd Soon RESTRICT London's Public ....    
From Hitting Them With TRUE LYRICS ... !!!!!    
    
About The Ways ...    
Delays ... PERSIST ... !!!    
    
Now Don't Dismiss The Point of This ...    
Because Restrictions On How We Live ...    
Are DANGER FILLED Like ... " POLITICS " ... !!! ...    
    
Restrictions Lead To ... " Legal Fees " ...    
Over Things Like ... " Property Deeds " ...    
    
Solicitors Restrict ...    
What We Should Know ...    
Just To FUEL ...    
Their OWN Cash Flow ... !!!!!    
    
EVEN When ....    
Your Case Is ... STRONG ... !!!    
    
It Takes SO LONG ...    
To Get  ... " Paid Off " ...    
    
THEY ... "RESTRICT You" ...    
Just Like THE COPS .... !!!!!!!    
    
RESTRICTIONS On The Things We Say ...    
Need REMOVAL ... RIGHT AWAY ... !!!!!    
    
Why Can't People Discuss **** .... ?!?    
    
Are There Secrets ...    
... "Locked Away" ... ???!???    
    
Let's Move On .....    
To Some DIFFERENT ...    
    
.... " RESTRICTIONS " ....    
    
Things Like How Much ...    
We Can ... Drink ... ???    
    
"Don't drink too much !    
and drive, your car !    
You'll find yourself,    
locked behind bars !!!"    
    
That's ... Funny To Me ...    
When Laws Are PASSED ...    
To Now ALLOW Drinking ALL DAY ..... ?!?!?    
    
And YES ..... ALL NIGHT ..... !?!    
    
Laws Like This ...    
Are Such A ... FARCE ... !!!    
And May Now Be ... ?    
    
A Drink TOO FAR ... !!!!!    
    
Restrictions On ....    
The Drugs We Take ...    
    
While Stars Who Do Them ...    
Still Get ... PAID ... !?!    
    
Just Like SKINNY STUPID KATE ... !!!    
    
If She Takes Coc'...    
    
"HEY, it's okay !?!"    
    
While Those Who SELL IT ...    
Are .... " DISGRACED " .... !!!!!    
And Are .... "QUICKLY" ....    
.... "LOCKED AWAY" .... !!!    
    
Unless Of Course ...    
They... " ENTERTAIN " ... !!!    
    
Then We're Told ....    
    
"Their life's a strain !    
They don't deserve to be detained !!!!!"    
    
Restrictions CLEARLY ... !!!!!    
Aren't For .... " ALL " .... ?!? ....    
    
" Policemen " ....    
    
Always STAND TALL ...    
And Never Seem To Take A FALL ... !!!    
    
When They Go ...    
BEYOND The Law .... !?!?!    
    
SHOOTING GUNS ... !!!    
Almost For FUN ... ?!?    
    
Leaving Mums ...    
WITHOUT Their Sons .... !!!    
    
Don't They Need Some RESTRICTIONS ... !?!?!    
    
I Guess They're There ... ?    
To Keep The ... " PEACE " ... ?!?    
    
Well ....    
RESTRICTION of WARS ...    
And .... " Corporate Thieves " ...   
    
Might Help Us Keep ...    
MORE ... Peace-Filled Streets ...    
Streets Requiring ... "LESS POLICE" ... !!!!!    
    
But That's Just ME ...    
Fuelling More ... " Controversy " ...    
Through ... UNRESTRICTED Poetry ... !!!!!    
    
But Words Like THESE ...    
Are ... Deemed To Be ...    
    
NOT GOOD To Read ...    
    
To Youth Who FEED ...    
On .... " MTV " .... !!!!!    
    
This Is Such HYPOCRISY ...  !!!!    
    
They ... FEAR For Kids ... !!!    
Say Those Who ... " TEACH " ...    
    
But ... SHIELD Them From ...    
........ REALITY ......... !!!! ? !!!!!    
    
More RESTRICTIONS ... ?? ! ??    
    
TRUTH For Children ...    
Seems ... FORBIDDEN ... ?!?    
    
No Wonder Some ...    
Resort To ... KILLING  ... !!!    
    
Well Just Like ... " Nas " ...    
My Words Are WRITTEN ...    
    
Poetic Scripts ...    
From How We're Living ...    
    
LIFE ... Moves On ...    
But When I'm ... GONE ...    
There'll Be No Chance ...    
For Kids To ... " LISTEN " ...    
    
Because of .... YES ....    
    
ALL THESE ....    
    
... " RESTRICTIONS " ... !!!!!
I thought things were bad at the time of writing this, however, I now think that basic human freedoms, will slowly diminish, as we move into the future ........
Just...
Be YOURSELF... !!!

What's Wrong With THAT... ?!?

I'd Rather Be ME...
Than... Someone Else... !?!

FOLLOWING... "Cliques"...
Is NOT For ME... !!!

I Don't Believe...
That's The Way To Be... !!!

I'm Inspired By Those...
Whose Minds... RUN FREE............................... .........................

And Don't Join Gangs...
of... " Forty Thieves "... !!!

Why Do THAT... ?
I'm Saying Man...
Be YOURSELF... !!!

DON'T End Up Being...
Just Like... " STAN "... !!!

STAND Your Ground...
And YES... Be Proud...
of WHO You ARE... !!!

SHINE Like... " A STAR "... !!!!!

Don't Get Me Wrong... !!!

Some Groups Are STRONG...
And May Help You...
To Make STRONG MOVES... !!!

But...
DON'T Be Fooled... !!!

Some Groups... Just USE... !!!
And Prove That They...
DON'T CARE For............................. " You "..........

That's Why I Choose...
To... Do My Do...
WITHOUT The Views...
of Those Who... "stoop"...
To... "Devious Moves"...

To ADVANCE... " THEMSELVES "...
Whilst Leaving............................ .... You......

So... Be YOURSELF... !!!

Don't Trust In... " WEALTH "...

You May Just.... " Find "....
You Can't Just... " Buy "...
The Things You See...
INSIDE Your Mind... !!!

I've Said... Be PROUD...
of... Who You ARE...

But DON'T Let PRIDE...
CONTROL Your Heart...
Cos' That Could TEAR...
Your Life... " A P A R T "... !?!

I'm NOT TELLING You...
How To Live YOUR LIFE... !!!!!

I'm Merely... Offering...
Some... " Advice "...
On How To Lead...
A... " Simple Life "...

NOT Criticise... !!!
Or... Trivialise...

It's TOUGH To Be...
A... STAND UP Guy... !!!

Doing THAT...
Can Make Some TRY...
To Make You Think...
You NEED A... " Shrink "... !!!

Take Note of The Words...
In The Following Verse...

I'm About To Give... " Clues "...
On How They TRY...
To BREAK The STRENGTH...
They SEE... " IN YOU "... !!!!!

"What's WRONG with you ?
I think you're rude !"

"Why, because i'm not like you ?
Listen man, and please be cool !
I think your crew is full of fools !"

"Ahhh, I see now,
you think you're tough !"

"Now listen bruv', no need for stuff
that could result, in loss of blood !
I'm simply saying, make your moves,
without me, inside your crew !
What you do, is down to you !
I'm choosing not to be your stooge !"

SEE...
Talk Like THAT...
Is NOT For Most... !!!

That's... Just The TRUTH...
And Is... NO BOAST... !!!

Crews Will BURN YOU...
Just Like... TOAST... !!!

And That's The TRUTH...
From... " Coast To Coast "... !!!!

I'm Saying Man...
REJECT... These Gangs... !!!
And YES Ladies...
I Mean YOU TOO... !!!

Some Female Groups...
DO Give ABUSE... !!!

Mentally...
And Some With... TOOLS... !!!

Girls Are Now...
Being STABBED IN... " Schools "... !?!

I Guess... " Some Girls "...
Now Think It's... " Cool "...
To Do These Things...
And JOIN These Groups... ?!?

I'm SAYING Ladies...
Just Be... YOU... !!!

Because Men Like me...
... Are NOT Into...

Girls Who Walk...
In Their Friends' Shoes... ?!?

When We ARGUE...
Air... YOUR Views... !!!!

NOT Those of...
Girls In... " Your Crew "...
They May Just Be...
JEALOUS... of You... !?!

They'll... " Sit and TALK "...
And Offer Thoughts...
EVEN Offer... Their Support...

But Some of Them...
STAB BACKS With Forks... !!!

They're...
FULL OF... " Talk "... !!!
WITHOUT... Much Walk... !!!

And FEED OFF You...
Like... " Stephen Dorff "... !!!!

BLOODSUCKERS... !!!
Who Simply... "Smother"...

Girls Like This...
Go On... BIG BROTHER... !!!!!!

WATCH Them CLOSE...
These... " Female PRO's "... !!!

Girls Like THEM...
WON'T LIKE My Prose... !!!
And Shouldn't Be...
On TV Shows... !!!

But That's The Way...
The Story Goes....

How Many of THEM...
Have Been... " Themselves "...
When On.... " TV ".... ?!!!?

In Search of Fortune...
FAME and WEALTH... !?!

Girls Like THESE...
Have Got... FOUL SMELLS... !!!!!!!!!!

And GIVE Their Souls...
To The Devil Who SELLS...
And Takes Their... " Spirits "...
DOWN To... " Hell "... !!!!

OH... NOT Just THEM...
But Men As Well... !!!

Peas In... "A POD"...
Who Should...................... Dispel.................
Their NEED To.... " Keep "....
Who THEY ARE................................ ...... "quelled".........

I Think THESE People...
Are........ UNWELL....... !!!!!!!

I Guess It's HARD To...

... " Be Yourself "... ?!?
I think I was at that point in my life, where, the visions of people, " Faking it ", in terms of who they were presenting themselves to be, as well as the steady increase of youth crime, inspired this .....
Why Girls ... WHY ... ?

Do You ... Like To TRY ...

And DISMISS Clues ...
That Things They Do ...

FAR From ...................................... " SHREWD " ..... !!!!!

DON'T Make Arrangements ...

And Think That Men ...
Will STILL Be ... " SWEET " ... !?!

DON'T DO That Stuff ... !!!!!

DON'T ................... DISMISS ME ..........

Kate Moss Like DOPES ...
Who ..." SNIFF THE Coc' " ...
And Take Mens' KINDNESS ...
For A ...... " JOKE " ...... !!!!!

Then Wonder ... " WHY " ... !?!

The Chances of ...
A Night of SMILES ...

Where, Body, Souls ...
And Minds COMBINE ...

And FIND A Place ...
Where LOVE'S Your Guide ... !!!!!

And Begs THE QUESTION ...

" WHY GIRLS .... WHY ? "
There's always something to inspire a writer, when it comes to relationships, and a number of visions at the time inspired this.
Are You .... " P.C. " .... ?  

What Does That Mean ... ?  
Does It Make You Feel You're Good ..... ?!?  
And Treat People The Way You Should ... ?  

I Guess For Some ...  
That's What This Means ... ?
    
Well Folks I Hate To ...  
SHATTER Dreams ... !!!
  
But ...
That's NOT What It Means To ME ... !!!  
  
Calling Me ... " Coloured " ...
Instead of ... " Black " ...
  
ISN'T RIGHT ... !!!!!  
  
What's Up With That ... ?!?  
  
How Many Colours ...  
Do You ... SEE ... ?!?  
When You REALLY ...  
Look At ... ME ... !?!  
  
Coloured Is How White Folks Be ...  
After Fighting ... In The Street ... !!!!!  
  
But Am I Black ... ???  
Or Am I Simply ...  
Just A Man ...  
With A Slightly ...  

DARKER Tan ... !!!
  
Check Those Words ...  
And ... " OVER - STAND " ... !!!!!  
  
P.C. Means ....  
NOTHING ... To Me ... !!!  
  
P.C. Can Stand For  ....  
  
" Police Constable " .....  
  
Too Many of Them ...  
Means ... Here Comes TROUBLE ... !!!!!  
  
P. C.  ..... Does NOT Mean ...  
You Are ..... " Humble " ..... !!!!!!  
  
Stay With Me Now ....  
Don't You .... " Stumble " .... !!!  
  
This Simple Piece of Poetry ...  
Will NOT Be Seen As Being ... " P.C. " ... !!!  
  
Especially By The ... " Bourgeoisie " ... !!!!!  
  
But Truthfully ......  
What Does It Mean ... ?  
  
" Personal Computer ? "  
  
Or ... Could It Be ... ?  
  
" Big Brother's Viewer ? "  
  
... " Watching " ...
ALL The Things We Do ... ?  
Whilst Surfing Sites ...  
In Our Bedrooms ...  
  
I'm Not Sure ... ?  
Do You Have A View ... ?

On Which To ... Chew ... !!!
  
"Eh get back to

"Actually, the name is Virge !
Son, listen up, to these here words !!!  
are you P.C., or dismissing my poetry !?!"
  
Here's Some More ...  
..... " Analogies " .....  
  
P.C. Could Mean ... ?  
  
YES ... " Poetry Clique !!! "  
  
That's ... BAD P.C. ... !!!!!!!!  
  
I See These Cliques And EVIL Breeds ...  
And Watch Them From A .... " Distant Seat " ................................... ........ !!!
  
P.C. ... Could Mean ...
A .... " Private Club " ....  
Do You See The Link ... ???  
  
GOOD That's The Stuff ... !!!  
  
That Makes  ... " P.C. " ...  
A Thing For Those ....  
Who May Get Stuck ....  
  
Because P.C. ....  
Means Oh So Much ... !!!  

To Their ... " little " ...  
... NEEDY Minds ...  
  
I'm Saying ... !!!!!  
Are These People Blind ... ?!?  
  
THEY Seem To Need ...  
To Have ... " Guidelines " ...  
And ... Tend To Lie ...  
Throughout Their Lives ...  
  
THEY Like HARD Drugs ... !!!  
And ... Getting Drunk ... !!!  
  
"Sir, park your car  
between these lines,
NO, NOT those ones !

With More of .....  
My .... Simple Rhymes .... !!!!!  
  
" P.C. " ...

Could Just Mean ...
.... " Pretty Cool " .....  ?!?
  
Now THIS Definition ...  
Fits The Vocal Style I Use ... !!!  
  
And My Poetry When Fuelled .......  
  
By My Wish To ...
... Air My Views ...  
    
WITHOUT Pretence ...  
But Through The Use of ...  
  
... " Common Sense " ...  
    
My Wordplay's Built ...  
Like ... Navaho Tents ... !!!!!  
And Is NOT MEANT To ....  
  
..... Cause Offence .....  !!!  
  
But .... " secret sects " ....  
  
I DO Detect ....  
Are Stuck On Being ....  
  
" Politically Correct !?! "  
  
Now THIS P.C.  
Is NOT For Me  ... !!!!!!  
Cos' This Defines ...  
  
.... " Hypocrisy " .... !!!!!!!!!!!!  
  
Be Nice Because ...  
You WANT TO BE ... !!!!!  
  
NOT To Prove ....

It's such a strange thing that I felt I had to write something on it .....

FALSENESS Also ...
Leads To ... PROBLEMS ... !!!
LYING Simply ....
Forwards ... NONSENSE ... !!!

I'm Saying ....
Use Some ... " Common Sense " ... !!!!!
And Use The TRUTH ...
As Your ..... " DEFENCE " ..... !!!!!!

Because Lying Leads To VIOLENCE ... !!!!!

NOT ... All The Time ... !!!
But ... LOOK For Signs ...
Take ... " My ADVICE " ....

DON'T End Up Doing ...
STUPID Crimes ....
Because You've Told ...

" A CROCK of LIES ! " ...

Check The NEWS ...
And Be ... ADVISED ...

Lies Provide A Simple Guide ...
That TRUTH Can OPEN ...
..... " Peoples Eyes " .....

While Those Who LIE ...
Are ..... " Criticised " .....
And End Up With ...
UNHAPPY Lives .... !!!!!

EASTENDERS' Shows This ...

..... ALL THE TIME ..... !!!!!

LYING  Can .....
Leave You ... " downsized " ... !!!!!

By This I Mean ...
Lies Can ... " Create " ...
Your Own DEMISE ... !!!!!

This Is Why ....
I'm Saying ... TRUTH ...
Is ... BETTER For You ...
Than Telling .... " LIES " .... !!!

TRUTH Is Something ...
For The ..... " WISE " ..... !!!!!
And Helps You Lead ...
A .... " HAPPY Life " ..... !!!!!!

Words of TRUTH
Are NOT ... " Devised " ... !!!

They Simply Come ...
From ... LIE FREE Minds ... !!!!!

I'm Using Mine ...
Through Use of Rhyme ...
And Through Usage ...
of ... " Poetic Designs " ...

These Words Are TRUE ...
And Simply Are ...

... " Big Virge's Views ! " ...

I Choose To Use ...
The TRUTH For Food .... !!!

Because Food Like THAT ...
Supplies ... The FACTS ... !!!!

NOT A life ...
of Smoking ... " CRACK " ... !!!!!

Drugs Like ... THAT ...
Can BREAK Your Back ... !!!!!!!!!!

And Leave Your Life ...
On ... " Dodgy Tracks " ... !!!!!

So ... Do Your Do .... !!!!!
LIVE LIFE ... Be Cool ...

But Do What's RIGHT ... !!!
When Sharing Views ...

ALWAYS ...

... " BE TRUE " ... !!!
The poem speaks for itself !

For Those Who ...
Choose To ..... FEEL .....
What It Is My Speech ...
And Artistry ... SEEKS ...

It Seeks To Reach ...
A Part of Your Psyche ...

NOT To Breed FEAR ... !!!

So Let Me Make This CLEAR ... !!!!!
REMEMBER ... What You HEAR ...
Is Just ... FREE SPEECH ... !!!

Just Like What’s heard ...
From ... IGNORANT Herds ...
Whose Words DISTURB ... !!!!

And ...
PROVE To ... HURT ... !!!

When They Freely Speak ...
On Our TV Screens ... !!!
And ... Radio Shows ...

That’s Right ... Ya Know ...
Like ... LIAM NEESON ...
EXPOSING ... Racist Leanings ... !!!

Like Clowns ...
Who KEEP DROWNING ...
...... “Reality” .....

Clowns Who ...
SHUT DOWN Political Scenes ... !!!

Just To Build A WALL ... ?!?
I Mean SERIOUSLY Y’all ...

It’s Time To Make The Call ...
For This IMBECILES Leadership ...
To See A ... DOWNFALL ... !!!!!

But It Seems ...
That There Are Crews ...
Who’d Rather Hear This Dude ...
KEEP ... RUNNING His Chops ...
Instead of ... Feed Food ...

To Those In His Crop ...
Who He KEEPS Giving Jobs ...

Who CLEARLY ...
... DON’T Belong ... !!?!!

Because It DOESN’T Take Long ...
For Them To Be ... GONE ... !!!!!

Cutting Off Connects ...
More Than STORMY ...
... GIVES HEAD ... !!!!!

Now Ya’ SEE ...
What You Hear ...

Can Evidently ... STEER ...
Your Mind To ... “ Veneers “ ...

Where ... LIES and DECEIT ...
And ... ******* ... !?!?!?!
Are Linked DIRECTLY ...
To ... Presidencies ... !???!

That SURELY Should of Been ...
SWIFTLY ... IMPEACHED ... ?!!!?

You See ...
Doing THIS THING ...
Comes EASY To Me ... !!!!!

Because of ...
What I HEAR ...
When I FILL My Ears ...
With ... Hip Hop Beats ...
That Are COOL and Jazzy ... !!!

Some ...
ILLINFORMED’ Production..
Rocking With Some ... Verb T ...
Works FINE For Me ... !!!

And Inspires HOT Rhymes ...
Like The MANY Now Filed ...
By The ... “ Brotha’ Big V “ ...

That’s Right ...
I Mean ... ME ... !!!

aka ... BIG V ... !!!

Or YES ... BIG VIRGE ... !!!

A Man With MORE Verse ...
Than Hotties Have CURVES ... !!!

So DON'T ...
Make The Mistake ...
of Thinking That My Words ...

Are Those That DON'T Deserve ...
To Be Seen As ... TOP CLASS ... ?

What’s WRONG With YOU ... ?!?

Are You ...
Some Kind of *** ... ?!?

Whose Only Vision of ... " Art " ...
Is The CRAP That ... CHARTS ... !?!

Which ... Leads Me To Say ...
That ... At The End of The Day ...

It’s ...
MORE Than Just ... " A CLAIM “ ... !!!
That I’m ... About To Make ...

DON’T ... Make THAT MISTAKE ...
When It Comes To The Verse ...
That’s Kicked By ... Big Virge ... !!!

Because It’s ... WELL Observed ...
And Works More Than ******* ...
Who Deal In ... BAD TURNS ... !!!!!

So IS ...
Bound To Be BETTER ...

Than .....

... “ What You’ve Heard “ ... !!!

It Seems ... Mr. Ross ...
Has BROKEN Some ... " Boundaries " ...
  
But ... If it's Not Him ...  
It's That Man ... " Ali G " ... !!!  
    
Or Maybe A ... " Pundit " ...  
On Late Night TV ... ?!?  
    
But ...  
Shows That They're SLAMMING ...  
Claim To Be ... " Comedies " ... ?!?  
    
Can Someone Explain ...  
How They Get On ... TV ... ?!?  
    
" Have I Got News For You "  
    
Is On ... BBC ...  
As is ... Mr. Ross ...  
But NOT ... Ali G ...  
    
Channel 4 ... Is The Channel ...  
Where He Seems To Be ...  
    
But ...  
Now They're Complaining ...  
That Things They Are Saying ...  
AREN'T Really ... " Funny " ... !?!  
    
But ...  
THIS Is ... LONG After ...  
Execs' Get MONEY ... !!!  
    
NOT Just Celebs' ...  
But THOSE ... TV Heads ...  
Who CLAIM That ... " The Edit " ...  
Didn't Get To ... THEIR DESK ... !?!  
    
So ....  
What Were They Doing ... ?  
Instead of ... Tape Viewing ... ?!?  
    
Now ...  
That Is A Thought ...  
To Leave Your Mind ... " Stewing " .............  
    
See ...  
THIS Is ... " The Problem " ...    
With Critics and ... " Liberals " ...  
THEY ... Twist and Turn ...  
Like ... " Arjen Robben " ... !!!  
    
It's OKAY To USE Blacks ...  
For ... SHAMELESS Displays ...  
EVEN If A GREAT MANY ...  
DON'T Behave THAT Way ... !?!  
    
But Some SILLY Blacks ...  
Are READY To Say ...  
    
" Don't worry i'll do it ! "  
    
Just For A ... " PAYDAY " ... !!!  
    
That's Just My View ...  
Cos' TV ... Is SEE THROUGH ...  
    
DON'T EVER Be Fooled ...  
They KNOW What They Do  ...  
    
These SHOCK VALUE Stories ...  
Remind Me of ... TORIES ... !!!  
    
and Like ... MOST of Them ...  
THESE Stories Just Bore Me ... !!!  
    
I Thought This Was WHY ...  
We Have The ... " Watershed " ... !?!  
    
Cos' ...  
By The Time ... Half Past Nine ...  
Shouldn't Kids Be IN BED ... ?!?  
    
Parents ... Be CAREFUL ...  
Which Channel You PRESS ... !!!  
    
Cos' Your Child May Just Be ... ???  
REPEATING ... What Is Said ...  
On ... Late Night TV ...  
To Get Some STREET CRED' ... !!!  
    
This Is MY Belief ...  
It's Those SAME TV Chiefs ...  
That PUT ... FOUL-MOUTHED Actors ...  
On .... " Comic Relief " ....  
    
They KNOW What They're Doing ...  
They SET UP ... SHOCK Viewing ... !!!!!  
    
From Soaps Like ... " Eastenders " ...  
To ... Late Night Agendas ...  
    
To ...  
CONJURE UP ... Figures ...  
From Ali G ... " WIGGERS' " ...  
To RAPPERS Who YES ...  
Are REALLY ... Gold Diggers ... !!!  
    
Who Just Try To ... SHOCK ...  
With Words That They've Got ... !!!  
    
THESE Rap Battles Generate ...  
MILLIONS of Sales ... !!!!!!  
    
Don't You SEE ... ?  
Thats' The Plot ...  
    
DON'T Sit and COMPLAIN ...  
Cos' The Lot We've Now Got ...  
Is Running ... AMOK ...  
    
Somewhat Like ...  
... Your SNOT ... !!!  
    
Whatever Has Happened ...  
To .... TECHNOLOGY .... ?!?  

Unless The Show's LIVE ...  
Can't They Just Use The BLEEP ... ?!?  
    
EVEN If The Show's LIVE ...  
I Suggest They Start Using ...  
Technology ... " Tricks " ...  
    
And Then THIS Whole PROBLEM ...  
Could Simply Be ... FIXED ...  
    
PROFANITY Is ...
Part of ... REALITY ...  
    
And REALITY Is ..  
A Reflection of ... " WE " ...  
    
The Image of ... YOU ...  
And The Image of ME ...    
    
I Hope ... This Little Poem ...  
Has Helped You To SEE ...  
    
That ...  
ALL of This ... NONSENSE ...  
Is Simply Just ... BLEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPP ... !!!!!!  
    
And THAT Is My View ...  
On These **** ...  
    
.... " Boundaries " ....
Hardly seems quite so relevant nowadays, however, after Dave Chappelles revelation about what's deemed suitable for TV and what's not, it's still an interesting subject. This was written around the time that Jonathan Ross had got into a little bit of hot water for F-Bombing A Comic Relief Show .... http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3226011.stm

Fake or True ... ???

A Snake On The Make ... !?!  
Whose Purpose In Life ...  
Is To Have The WHOLE CAKE ... !?!  
  
So ....  
What Makes People FAKE ... ???  
  
In Some It's This Simple ...  
When They Look In Your Face ...  
Their Pupils ... " DILATE " ... !!!  
  
But ... What About Those ...  
Who Have Eyes Like A Snake .... ?  
  
Don't Make The ... "***-UMPTION"

It's Actions They Take ...  
That'll PROVE If They're Fake ... !!!!!  
  
The Presumption You've Made ...  
May Mean ... YOU ARE FAKE ... ?!?  
  
Presumption Is Always ...  
A ... Fake Fools Mistake ... !!!
  
DON'T Presume That You Know ...  
What A Person Will Show ... !!!  
  
Cos' Fake People Hide Behind ...  
Their ..... " BRAVADO " ...... !!!!!  
  
Rather Like CERTAIN Poets ...  
Hide Behind Their ... EGO ... !!!  
  
Or Rappers ...  
Who Hide Behind ...  
Gangsta Type Flows ...  
  
Which ...
Just Goes To Show ...  
How Little They Know ... !!!  
  
Gangsters ... DON'T Talk ...  
When They're ... Ready To BLOW ... !!!!!  
  
You Won't Get A Chance  ...  
To Say Bye ... When You Go ... !!!  
  
FAKENESS ... And EGO ...
DO NOT Define ME Though ... !!!  
  
But Poems I'm Writing ...  
Sometimes Have ... Rap Flow ...  
  
Which Just Goes To Show ...  
That ... Everything Rap ...  
Ain't About Killing Blacks ... !!!
  
So To ... ALL YOU KIDS ...  
I Hope You're HEARING THAT ... !!!!!!  
  
I Try To ... Spit FACTS ...  
To Prove To Young Blacks ...  
To .... " Of Course " ....  
  

... " Mind The GAP " ... !!!!!  
  
WATCH OUT For The Trap ...  
Cos' That's What MP's Want ...  
  
TRUST ME ... BELIEVE That ... !!!!!!  
  
These Words ...
Are The TRUTH ... !!!  
  
STOP Acting UNCOUTH ...  
And ... Most of All ....  
  
............ " STOP" ......... !!!!!!!!  
  
All This ... KILLING OF YOUTH ...  
Cos' This ... Simply Proves ...  
  
You Know NOT ...  
WHAT YOU DO .... !!!
  
Ohhhh ........  
You May Have ... "Your Crew" ...  
  
But .....  
When PRESSURE Comes ... !!!  
  
I Hope They're All TRUE ... ?!?  
Cos' When The Cops Come ... !!!  
It May Just Be .... YOU ....  

Who Sits In THE DOCK ...  
In A ....... Quiet Courtroom .................................................  
  
Orlando ... May BLOOM ...  
But Now YOU SEE Gloom .................................................................­...  

Cos' ... Bars And A CELL ...  
Are Now Your BEDROOM ... !?!  
  
So ....  
How Does THAT Sound ... ?!?  

A Fate Filled With DOOM ... !!!  
A Life ... " UPSIDE DOWN " ...  
Kind of Like A ... Mushroom ... ?  
  
These Are ...
Some of The Reasons ...  
I TRY To Be ... " TRUE " ...  
  
Cos' ... Life's NEVER EASY ...  
And CAN Leave You .... "BLUE" .... !!!  
  
But ...... ???  
  
This Could POSSIBLY BE ... ???  
Cos' You're ... FAKE AND UNTRUE ... ?!?  
  
And ... LIE TO YOURSELF .....  
When Dealing With ... " YOU " ...  
  
Which ...
Leads You To LYING ...  
To Others In View .....  
  
Just Like These FAKE PEOPLE ....
In Life ... Like To DO ... !!!!  
  
I'm From The ... " OLD SKOOL " ...  
Where Lying Was Deemed ....  
To Be Something For FOOLS ... !!!!  
  
But .....  
Let Me Just STRESS ... !!!  
  
I've Lied In My Youth .... !!!  
  
But NOW Have The VIRTUE ...  
of ... Telling THE TRUTH ... !!!!!!  
  
Even IF It ... HURTS YOU ... !!!  
Or IF It ... HURTS ME ... !!!  
  
But TRUTH ... In The End ...  
Is How Things SHOULD BE ... !!!!  
  
Cos' Then ... We MIGHT SEE ...  
It's Pointless To RUN FROM ...  
  
........... " REALITY " ......... ???!???  
  
In The End ... How You Be ...  
Might ... Leave You At SEA ... !!!  
In Your NEW POWER BOAT ...  
WITHOUT ... Any Key ... !!!!  
  
DRIFTING ... NOT Sinking ...  
Looking For A ... " QUAY " ... !!!  
  
But NONE Are In Sight ...............................  
  
You're Now In A Plight ...  
Cos' Your Fakeness Has Left You ...
DARKENED ... Like THE NIGHT ... !!!

Ready To ... " SWITCH " ...  
  
But YOU TURNED OFF THE LIGHT ... !!!!!  
  
Well ... That's My INSIGHT ...  
Into ... Doing What's RIGHT ... !!!!!!  
  
I've Left You Some Clues ...

So .....
What Will You FIND ... ???

" FAKE or ...........

Never an easy question, when it comes to REALLY being, true to yourself !

Like You're ... ALONE ...
To ... Think The Things ...
You Do At Home ...  ???
  
Cos' When Your Mind ...  
Begins To ... ROAM .......................
  
THIS PLACE Can be  
A ... FRIGHTENING Zone ... !!!!
  
These Days I See ...
So MANY Clones ...
Who Just CAN'T Do ...
Things On Their Own ... !!!
  
They NEED To Have Doors OPEN ...
Maybe Because They've BROKEN ... ?
The CARDINAL Rule of ... Being YOU ... !!!
  
NO MATTER What ...
You Have Been Through ...
  
Why Change To Accommodate ...
PRETENTIOUS Fools ... ?!?
  
Just To Make A ...
POWER MOVE ... !?!
  
WHAT ... In The End ...
Does This REALLY Prove ... ?!?
  
That You DON'T Fit ...
INTO ... Your Shoes ... !?!
  
Or ... Just Confirm ...
You've Got ... Screws L O O S E ... !!!!!
  
This Is NOT ...
About ... Abuse ... !!!
  
Unless ABUSE ...
Is What You Choose ... ?!?
  
I Choose To ... " Infuse " ...
And Then Turn LOOSE ...
Some Words To Make You ...
Dissect ... " Y O U " ... !!!
  
How TRUE Are YOU ... ?!?
What Do You Do ... ?
What Do Your Actions ...  
... Mean To You ... ???
  
But ... Let Me STRESS ...
This Applies To ME TOO ... !!!
  
Sometimes I Am Tame ...
Just Like The ... SHREW ... !!!
  
And Like Dr Watson ...
NEED ... Sherlocks' Clues ...
To Make Me SEE ...
What's REALLY TRUE ... !!!
  
What's True In ME ...
And True In ... YOU ... ???
  
So That Fake SNAKES ...
Become SEE THROUGH ...  
  
So ... Is That You ... ?
Do You DISLIKE ...
Poems I Do ... ???
Cos' Words I Write ...
Are Based On ... TRUTH ...
  
While ... Most of You ...
Just Write For ... YOU ...

To ...
Stand On Stage ...
And Be ... UNTRUE ...
About The Things ...
SURROUNDING ... "You" ...
  
I Now DON'T CARE ...
About ... THAT CREW ... !!!
  
But ... I DO CARE ...
About Our Youth ... !!!
  
Who Get Taught By ...
THESE Teachers Who ...
Are ... UP THEMSELVES ... !!!
  
Oh YES ... It's TRUE ... !!!
  
I've Been AMAZED ...
By What Some SAY ... !!!
  
And How ... On Stage ...
Some Do BEHAVE ... !!!
  
Some Words I've Heard ...
AREN'T FIT For A Page ... !!!
  
But Some Should Be ...
LOCKED IN A Cage ... !!!!!
  
OH ... Have I Made ...
Your Eyebrows RAISE ... !?!
  
If ... That's The Case ...
Then Take The Stage ...
And Say What You Think ...
Right To MY FACE ... !!!!
  
Cos' ......

BEHIND The Back Talk ...
Just ISN'T My Way ... !!!
  
That's Why I Say ...
What I've Got To Say ...
RIGHT IN THEIR FACE ... !!!
  
Then Leave The Space ...
WITHOUT ... A Trace
  
Cos' It Seems Kind of CLOSED ...
For An ... OPEN MIC Place ... !?!
  
Poets Seem To FRATERNISE ...
With THOSE They CLAIM To DISLIKE ... ?!?
  
But Then They ...
Seem To Be REAL QUICK ...
To Use THESE Parasites Mic' ... ?!?
  
SEE ... That To Me ...
Just ... ISN'T Right ... !?!
  
It's What I've SEEN ...
On ... DIFFERENT Nights ...
  
I Think It's Time ...
To ... NAME Some Names ... !!!
  
Is It Getting HOT ... ?!?
Can You Feel The FLAMES ... !?!
Cos' What Comes Next ...
Might Be ... YOUR Name ... !!!
  
You're LUCKY My Names' ..

Or ... " Fifty Cent " ...
  
I'm .......
More Like THAT THING ...

... " Common Sense " ...  
  
Using ... Words of Truth To VENT ...
So I Can RISE ABOVE ... " nonsense " ... !!!
  
I Guess That's WHY ...

Where People RUN FROM .......................................
Til' I've BLOWN ...
A Layer Made of ... Virge OZONE ... !!!!

I'm Just ... " BIG V " ... !!!
  
But Take CARE ...
How You Look At Me ... !!!

Now I'm NOT Starting ...  
A Poetry ... FEUD ...

"Come come old boy,

Rappers NOW ...

By ... Hip Hop Crews ... !!!  
  
So DEAL With It ...  
Or ... Go Back To School ...  
Cos' Poetry NOW ...  
Has Got ... NEW RULES ... !!!  
  
Don't Get On The Stage ...  
And ... Act The FOOL ... !!!  
  
Cos' ... What You Write ...  
May Not Be ... " Crude " ...  
  
What's Crude To ... YOU ...  
Is Simply ... " Your View " ...  
  
OTHERS ...  
May Not ... Share Your View ... !!!
  
Do ... " YOUR THING " ...  
YES ... DO ... Your Thing ... !!!  
But ... RECOGNISE ...  
Or FEEL The ... " STING " ... !!!  
  
Times Have Changed ...  
  
It's Time Right Now ...  
For Poets To Bring ...  
Words of ... TRUTH ...  

Cos' ...
Many In The World  
EPITOMISE ... " Crude " ...

Poets Whose Minds ...  
AREN'T Open But CLOSED ... ?!?

Everything NEW ...  
ISN'T Always ... GREAT ... !!!  
But You Might LEARN ...  
From The Odd ... New Face ...  
  
Can We NOT Take Poetry ...  
To It's ... RIGHTFUL Place ... !?!?!  
  
A Place Where The MASSES ...  
CAN ... " Relate " ...  
By INFUSING Words ...  
of ... TRUTH and LOVE ...  
INSTEAD of .... " HATE " ... !!!  
  
We ...
NEED To OVERCOME ...  
....... " Ignorance " ......

"Peace" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 18/3/2005
Big Virge Oct 25
I'm SICK Now of Hearing ...
This Word ... " Compromise " ... !!!!!
  
While THEY Tell Us Lies ... !!!
Why Should I ... " dIsGuise " ... ?
The Truth From .................................... "Their Eyes" ... ?!?
  
THEY As In ...... " THEM " ......  
  
Who Give Us ... PROBLEMS ... !!!!!
While THEY Sit And Spend ...
Cash THEY Have STOLEN ... !!!!!
  
This Thing ... Compromise ...
Is How They've ... Devised ...
To Keep Us From ... Seeing ...
THE TRUTH From THE LIES ... !!!
  
So ...
Can It Be ... " Wise " ... ?
To Just ... Compromise ... ?
Opinions ... In YOU ....
  
You KNOW ...
To Be ... TRUE ... ?!?
  
Just To Make CASH ...
So You Can Live ... FLASH ... !?!
  
THAT ...
  
Just ISN'T ... REAL ... !!!
  
You Might As Well ... "Steal" ...
Cos' Living Like THAT ...
  
UNevEns .... " The Keel " .... !!!
  
Do YOU ... Compromise ... ???
  
Well ...
Maybe You Do ... ?
  
But When You Reflect ...................................
Can You Say It Was ... Wise ... ?!?
  
I CANNOT Deny ... !!!
I Have ... Compromised ... !!!

But Now I Believe ...
I'd Rather ... DEFY ... !!!
Than Sit And ... " Comply " ...
With Those Who Would Try ...
To Make Me The ... " Fall Guy " ... !!!!!
  
They ALWAYS Imply ...
That Brothers Like I ...
Should Simply BEND OVER ...
ROLLOVER ... and Die ... !?!?!
  
Well .....
  
If I Must ... Die ...
I Firstly MUST TRY ...
To RISE ABOVE ... Those ...
Who Just ... " Compromise " ...
  
And Sell Themselves ... " short " ...
Cos' Their Souls Have Been ... Bought ... !!!
By Those Who ... "Constrict" ...
Their ... FREEDOM OF THOUGHT ... !!!
  
These Days ...  
I'm Now ... STRESSING ...
POETIC ... Expression ... !!!!!

To FLY With ... God's Blessing ...
Straight Into ... " His Heaven " ...
  
In Life Can't We Be ...
... Mentally FREE ... ?

To ... EXPRESS Our View ...
On Things That We SEE ... ???
  
WITHOUT ........................................... Compromise ....... !!!
  
For Guys Who Wear ... "Ties" ...
Who Seem ... SO SURPRISED ... !?!?!
  
When Black Men Like Me ...
Are ... WISE TO Their LIES ... !!!
  
And Use THEIR OWN WORDS ...
To Devise Their Demise ...
  
Compromise ... HERE ...
Or Compromise ... THERE ... ?
  
We NEED TO Start Issuing ...
WARNINGS ... BEWARE ... !!!!!!
  
With Poetry CLAIMING ...  
... The Media GLARE ... !!!!!!!!!
  
So Maybe One Day ... ?
I'll Be Your ... " Compere " ...
  
WITHOUT ..........  
Song and Dance ........
I'm NOT .... Fred Astaire .... !!!!!!!
But ..... Running AMOK .....  
YES ... Just Like MY HAIR ... !!!!!!!!!
  
So Who'll Pave The Way ... ?!?
For Poets ... To Say ...
The Things On Their Mind ...
That HURT .... EVERYDAY .... !!!!!
  
Could It Be ... " Me " ... ?
Or Could It Be ... " You " ... ?
  
Who REALLY Can Handle ... !?!
  
Reciting ... THE TRUTH ...
WITHOUT ... " Selling Out " ...
  
Just To Look ... " COOL " ...  
Well I ... AIN'T That Fool ... !!!!!
  
My Brain Is A TOOL ...
To Skywalk' ... Like LUKE ... !!!!!
  
But Forces Are ... DARK ... !!!
Surrounding Like ... SHARKS ... !!!
  
"PROTECTING" .... The Few ...
Who ... "Hide What They Do" ... !!!
  
So ...
Tell Me This People ...  
  
Is What I Say ... TRUE ... ???
  
Well That's ...  
Up To ... YOU ...  
  
UNLEARN What You've Learned ... !!!
Before You Get ... BURNED ... !!!
  
LUST For ... " A Prize " ...
Could Leave You ... "downsized" ... ?!?
  
And This ...
Might Just Happen ...  ???
  
If You ............
  
.... " Compromise " ....
We all do it in this life at some point, however, as the poem says, when you look back at the effects, was it wise ?

Big Virge Oct 23
So Many ... CLAIM ... !!!

They ... Want To HELP ... !!!
But ... Seem To Me ...
To ... " Help Themselves " ... !?!

From ... " Charities " ...
To ... " Families " ...
Who Help Long After ............................

..... " TRAGEDIES " ..... !!!!!

Even Those In ... " Poetry " ...
Seem RELUCTANT ...
To ..... " Use Me " ..... ?!?

Because of Words ...
They Hear Me Speak ...

Black and White ...
Have ... FEAR FILLED Eyes ...
When They Hear Me ... Use A Mic ....

I'm Sure In Truth ...
It's NOT Just ... " Me " ... !!!!!
But Those Who DON'T ...
Use ... PROCESSED Speech ...
And ... REJECT Joining ...

..... PHONEY CLIQUES ..... !!!

They Seem To ... Like ...
How Things ... Now Are ... ?!?

... " ILLITERACY " ...
  
From ...
Class To ... Bars ... !!!

Their ...  Form of HELP ...
Hasn't ... Got Us Far ... !?!

My ... Use of Speech ...
Ain't Always ... " Street " ...
And Doesn't Always ...

... Frighten Peeps' ... !!!!!!!

But Nowadays ....
That's How You Reach ...
Youth ... Whose Lives ...
FEEL .... Incomplete ....

I've heard this said ....

"Virge, kids would,
really, love your words !"

And Now I'm Finding ...
It's ... " The Youth " ...
Who Like ... My Stuff ...
And Think It's ... " COOL " ... !!!

So Now I'd Like ...
To Work In ... Schools ... !!!
And Touch These Kids ...
With ... DIFFERENT Views ...

That's ... A Start ...
But ... Uni's TOO ... !!!!!

Because They Are Deemed ...
To Have The Youth ...
Who'll ... Run The World ...
And Make ... STRONG MOVES ... !!!!!

But Now I've Got To ...
Go To ... SCHOOL ... !!!!

To Prove That I ...
Can Teach The Youth ...

So Much For ....
These ... FUNDED Groups ... !!!

Are They ...
Trying To ... " Help " ... ?
Or ... FILL THEIR BOOTS ... ?!?

Just Like ... MANY ...
... " Aid Groups " ... DO ... !!!

I'm Now ... " Confused " ... ?
And May ... " Refuse " ...
To Do What's Right ...
And ... HELP The Youth ...

While ... Parents Cry ...
Into ... " TISSUES " ... !!!!!

The ... " Poetry Scene " ...
Is ... FILLED With Dreams ... !!!

But ...
Run By ... "Those" ...
Who Are .................................................. "unseen" .......

They ...
FLY Through Here ... !!!

And ...
FLY Through There ... !!!

But ...
Never Seem To ...
Be ... Prepared ...

To ... Bring Those In ...
Who Are NOT SCARED ... !!!
To ... Speak Their MIND ...
Through ... CLEVER Rhyme ... !!!!!

And Use The Truth ... !!!!!
To .... " Reflect Times " ....

Times That WARRANT ...

******* LINES .... !!!!!!!!!!!

WELL Designed ...
And YES ... " REFINED " ... !!!
To HELP Our Youth ...
To ... STOP The Crimes ... !!!

Leading To ....
PREMATURE ... Flatlines ... !!!!!!!

Why ... " Decline " ... ?!?
To Use ... Such Rhyme ... !?!

Time Just ... Rolls On........................

You CAN'T ... REWIND ... !!!!!

And Time Right Now ...
Is .... " Running Out " ....
While Groups Like These ...
Are ... " Making Pounds " ... !!!

And Getting Grants ... !!!!!

To Do What's Right ... ?
And .... ENERGIZE ....
Our Youth To LIVE .... !!!
A ... POSITIVE LIFE ... !!!!!!!

By Using ... Those ...
Who Write ... Good Prose ...
And KNOW ABOUT ...
Life's ... HIGHS and Lows ... !!!!!

From ... Taking Dope ...
To .... Snorting Coc' .... !!!!!

Because ....
Things Like These ...
ARE NOT A Joke .... !!!!!!!!

And ... Have Left ...
MANY Young Hearts ...

...... BROKE ...... !!!!!!

It's ...
CLEARLY TIME ...
To ... Utilize Rhyme ...

If You ...
Don't Believe Me ...
Ask .... Stephen Fry .... !!!!

He ...
LOVES Poetry ...
As Much As ... I ... !!!

From Classics To ...
Contemporary Styles ...

When Rap's Done WELL ...
It Drives Kids ..... WILD ..... !!!!!!

And When ... " Applied " ...
To ... Children's Minds ...

You ... May Just Find ... ?
They'll ... REJECT Crime ...
And Be CONSTRUCTIVE  ...
... With Their Time ... !?!

These Words of Mine ...
Are YES ... " HEARTFELT " ... !!!
  
But ... Wonder When ... ???
These Groups Will SMELL ...

The Coffee ...
And Will ... REJECT Tea ... !!!

And Utilize ... My Poetry ....
Cos' Words I Write ...
Are Worth ... Money ... !!!

And ... NEED TO BE ...
Passed On With ... STEALTH ... !!!!!

Cos' Right Now ... I ...
DON'T LIKE The SMELL ... !!!!!!

of Those Who CLAIM ... !!!

They're ... Trying To ...

....... " HELP " ....... !!!
One has to wonder, when you look at the world sometimes, whether all these groups, and movements, who profess to be about, helping the vulnerable, etcetera, are actually, really doing what they claim to be doing ... ???
Big Virge Oct 21
Isn't ... Less ... ?
Sometimes ... MORE ... ?
  
Those Words Sound GOOD ...  
If You're ... NOT POOR ... !!!  
  
But Money ... Doesn't ...
Give You ... " LIFE " ...  
And Life Is NOT ...
Defined By ... Price ... !!!
  
But ....
Is That ... Right ... ?!?
  
Some Would Say ...
it Makes Them ... " SMILE " ... !!!
  
Now This DEFINES ...
Those In ... " DENIAL " ... !!!  
  
It's Not My Way ...
To Make You Pay ...
For Things That People ...
Like To Say ...
  
But ... Writing Things ...
Helps EASE The Rage ...
I Feel Today ... !!!
  
Because of ... " GREED " ...
That ... Leads To PAIN ... !!!!!
  
That's Why I'm Asking ... ?
What's The Score ... ?
  
Isn't ... Less ... ?
Sometimes MORE ... ?
  
Cos' GREED Is Something ...
I ... " DEPLORE " ... !!!!!
  
Money Fuels ...
A ... LOT of Wars ...  
Where People DIE ... !!!!!!
  
So ...
How's That ... RIGHT ... ?!?
  
More DEATH Than Life ...  
Sees People ... CRY ... !!!!!!!!!
  
Tears ... And Eyes ...
Don't Be Surprised ...
If Words I ... Speak ...  
DARKEN ... Sunlight ... !!!
  
In ... Todays' Times ...  
While Writing Rhymes ...
I Use My Mind ...
To Find ... SUNSHINE ... !!!
  
I Have ... Less Cash ...
Than ... EVER BEFORE ... !!!!!
And Face A Life ...
of Being ... " POOR " ...
  
That's ...  
NOT FOR SURE ... !!!
But Money's Made ...
PAIN In Me ... " SOAR " ... !!!
  
ARGUMENTS ...
To Get Some CASH ...  
Are ... DANGEROUS ... !!!!!
And Make Some ... " CLASH " ... !!!!!!!
  
I'd Rather Have ..... " LESS " .... !!!
Than ... MORE of That ... !!!!!  
  
Mums And Dads .....
Now FIGHT For Cash ... ?
  
Ignoring ... Daughters ... ?!?
And Their Lads ... !?!
  
These Are Things ...
NOT GOOD But ... BAD ... !!!!!
  
EVEN ... Fathers ... !!!
And Their SONS ... !!!!!
Will Go To ... " Court " ... ?!?
  
Now THAT'S NOT FUN ... !!!!!
  
Over ... MONEY ... ?!?
Come On Now ..... !!!  
  
That's Just As BAD ... !!!
As ... Gun-Type Sounds ... !!!
  
LESS Violence ... !!!
Is ... BETTER THAN MORE ... !!!!!
  
Like ... LESS DEFIANCE ...
Breeds ... LESS War ... !!!!!  
  
MORE ... Aggression ... !!!
FEEDS ... Depression ... !!!
  
These Are Things ...
I'd Like To ... LESSEN ... !!!  
  
Sometimes LESS TALK ...
And MORE ACTION ...
Can Bring You ... YES ...
  
.... " Satisfaction " .... !!!!!
  
And That's A ... FACT ... !!!
DON'T ... DISMISS That ... !!!!!
  
But It's ... GOOD To Talk ... !!!
When ... Building Forts ... !!!!!
  
BUT ... !!!  
  
NOT A Fortress ...
Just For ... " YOU " ... !!!
  
... " REMEMBER " ... !!!
OTHER People ... FOOL ... !!!!!  
  
May Take ... Because ...  
They Want That TOO ... !!!!!
  
That's What ... MORE ...
Can Sometimes ... " DO " ...  
  
Make People ...
  
JEALOUS ... of You ... !!!!!
  
And Make Them ... PULL ...
The DARKEST ... Moves ... !!!!!
  
If You ...  
Haven't Got A Thing ...
What's There To ... Take ... ???
  
I Guess This View ...  
Is Not The Way ...
  
But Look Around You ...
... " NOWADAYS " ... !!!
  
Can You Say I'm Wrong ... ?
At The ... End of The Day ... ?!?
  
SOME Will **** YOU ... !!!
For ... " Your CHAIN " ... !?!
  
I'm Thinking ...
Some Folk ... Are INSANE ... !!!!!
  
Check .... NEW ORLEANS ... !!!
When Facing ... " DEATH " ... !!! ...
  
Some Were Stealing ...
..... " TV Screens " ..... !!!!! ? !!!!!!
  
Instead of ... HELPING ...
Those Who ... SCREAMED ... ?!?
  
Come On Now Folks ...
See What I Mean ... !?!
  
Money ... Breeds ...
RUTHLESS Street Teams ... !!!
  
Who Then Do Things ...
That Are ... OBSCENE ... !!!!!
  
Happiness ...
  
Means MORE To Me ...
Than .... " ANY SUM " ....  
of ... Cash Money ... !!!!!!
  
Times Right Now ...
Have Made Me SEE ... !!!
  
Money ... CAN'T ...
Fulfil ... My Dreams ... !!!
  
LESS ****** ........
Gives Us ..... MORE LIFE ..... !!!!
And Helps To KEEP ...
Our Race ... " ALIVE " ... !!!!!
  
ALL ... Colour Types ... !!!
From ... Black To White ...  
  
LESS Division ...
  
Helps MORE ... " UNITE " ... !!!!!  
  
And THAT ... For Sure ... !!!
Is ... Better Than WAR ... !!!
  
And NOW ... Has Made ...
My Mind ... EXPLORE .........................................
  
This ...  
Simple Question ....  
  
" Isn't Less ... Sometimes MORE ... ? "
An interesting question to explore poetically ......

LESS Hassled Nights ...
  
So To ... " *** Clubs " ...
and *** Mens' Hugs ... ?!?
  
and ............................FAR AWAY ............................................
From .................................................... DRUNKEN Thugs ..... !!!!!
  
Who ... Drink In Pubs ...
and THINK They're TOUGH ...
  
I Guess That's Now ...
The Way It Goes ... ???
  
But Girls ...
Why Don't You ...
  
Just Say ... NO ... !?!
  
If Men ... PRESSURE ...
and ... HASSLE You ... ?
  
Cos' That's NOT ME ...
TRUST ME ... I'm Cool ...
  
So ... DON'T Pretend ...
and ACT The Fool ... !!!!!
  
READ These Words ...
These Words ARE TRUE ...
And Will Supply You ...
With ... MORE PROOF ... !!!
  
Back To .... " The Bar " ....  
This Made Me Laugh ... !!!
  
She's Now UP CLOSE ...
Cos' of ... Quality Prose ... !!!!!
  
But CAREFUL Dude ... !!!
With Words You Choose ...
Don't Lose The Mood ... !!!
  
Question Her ...
You Know How It Goes ...
  
I Ask her ...
  
"Did you like my prose ?"
  
She Says ...
  
"Yeah man, I liked your flow !
You performed the best, on tonights show !"
  
I said ... "Really" ...
  
and Played It ... " down " ...
But Continued ...
To ... Use My Mouth ... !!!
  
"Do you have a boyfriend ?"
  
She then says ... "No"
  
So Now I'm Thinking ...
Time To Roll ...
Keep It ... " Sweet " ...
and ... Bust A Joke ... !!!  
  
"What's wrong with you ?
No man about town ?
You're a **** girl !
I'm a bit confused ?"
  
She Smiles ...
But Has To ... Serve Someone ...
  
But ... Here It Comes ...  
Girls Leave Me ... " STUNNED " ... !!!
  
We Talk Again ...
This Time I'm IN ... !!!
  
She's Into ... YES ...
Some Similar Things ...
Arts and Stuff ...
and Yes ... Dancing ... !!!
  
Body's ... TIGHT ...
She Seems ... " Alright " ... ???
  
So Now I've Got To ...
FEED My ... " HUNGER " ... !!!
  
"Darling, can I have your number ?"
  
She ...
DOESN'T Say ... " NO " ... ?  
But ... Here It Comes ... !!!
  
"There's a kinda bloke ?
but how about this,
i'll take yours though ?"
  
SEE What I Mean ... ?!!!?
  
Girls ...  
Just Say ... NO ... !!!
  
I'm NOT A Bloke ...
That Cannot Cope ...
With ... HONESTY ... !!!
  
So Take That IN ...
And ... Let That SOAK ...
  
TRUST Me Girls ...
  
When It Comes To You ...
I May Be A ... " Dope " ...
  
But ...  
ONE THING I'm ... NOT ...
Is A ... " Kinda Bloke ?!? " ...  
  
What Is THAT ... ?!?
A ... " VIRTUAL Chap " ... !?!
  
Here's ... One More FACT ...
  
Girls Give ... " False Numbers " ...
  
Girls ... That's BAD ... !!!
  
DON'T Lie To Men ... !!!
Or .... YOURSELVES ... !!!
  
Because Wires CROSSED ...
WITHOUT A Fence  ...
Leaves Your House ...
WITHOUT ... Defence ... !!!!!!
  
"Men do it to us !
So, we'll do it to them !"

ATTITUDES ... Like THAT ...
Just Cause ... PROBLEMS ... !!!
  
Be CAUTIOUS ... YES ...
With Men You DON'T KNOW ... !!!
  
If You ...  
DON'T Like A Guy ...
  
Cut OFF His Flow.
  
But ... If The Guy ...
Stays In ... " Your Head " ...
and Makes You WANT HIM ...
........... IN YOUR BED ............ !?!?!
  
DON'T Get UPSET ...  
If You ... Get WET ... !!!
  
"Girls Just Say NO,
or, Better Still YES !"
Inspired by a bar maid interaction, at an event I performed at. It was a minefield then, and now thankfully, i'm old enough to not indulge too much, because of the stuff in this poem and much more now .....

People ... These Days ...
Are ... SO ****** RUDE ... !!?!!

and ... Seem To Think ...
They Should NOT Use ...
Words Like ... THESE ...

These Two ...

THANK YOU ... !!!

This ... Gets To Me ...
Doesn't It ... To You ... ?

Ignorant Youth ...
Who Act ... Uncouth ...

Adults Who ...
Fit In ... Their Shoes ...
and Clearly NEED ...
A ... " Manners School " ... !!!

Women TOO ...
Keep Giving ... Proof ...

They'd Rather ... " Act " ...
Like ... " Gangster Dudes " ... ?!?

Abusing Men ...
When We ... Look At Them ... !?!

Some Girls These Days ...
Are Worse Than ... Phlegm ... !!!!!

You ... OPEN A Door ...
They LOCK ... "Their Jaw" ... !!!

Girls Like THIS ...
I Now .................................................... Ignore .............

Would A ...
THANK YOU ... HURT ... ?!?

I Guess It Does ... ?
That's Why ... " These Girls " ...
Aren't Finding .................................................................­........ Love ........ !!!

It's Simple ...
Just ... OPEN Your Mouth ... !!!

You Do It When ...
You Go ... " Down South " ... !!!

Now Girls ... DON'T START ...
To ... SCREAM and SHOUT ... !!!

"He ain't got a clue,
what he's talking about !"

I'm SAYING ...

Some of You Just POUT ...
Like An ... **** Trout ...
That's About To DROWN ... !!!!!

Walking Streets ...
With ... " Gangsta Clowns " ... ?!?

FOOLS ... Who Walk ...
On ... DANGEROUS Grounds ... !!!!!!

Picking FIGHTS ... ?!?
ALL OVER Town ... !!!
While Men Like Me ...
Look On and ... FROWN ...

Just Look At ... Roads ...
You Know How It Goes ...

You ... " Give Way " ...
To Let Someone GO ...

They Get To You ...
and TURN UP Their Nose ... ?!?

This Can Sometimes ...
Lead To ... BLOWS ... !!! ...

Or .... Late At Night ....
It's The Same Thing Right ... ?!?

People BLIND YOU ...
With Their Lights ... !!?!!

NO Smile or Time ...
To Be ... " Polite " ...

They Drive Past You ...
With ... EVIL EYES ... !!!!!

One Day They'll Get ...
A ... BIG SURPRISE ...

A FOOL Like ... THEM ...
Who ... Wants To FIGHT ... !!!

Surely People ...
This AIN'T RIGHT ... !!!?!!!

I'm NOT Surprised ...
In ... Modern Times ...

But Felt I Should ...
Put THIS ... In Rhyme ... !!!

Because People Act ...
Like It's A ... " Crime " ... ?
To Do ... What's Right ...
and Be ... " Polite " ...

Most Now Seem ...
To Want Street Fights ... ?!?

But NOT ... The Game ...
and That's A Shame ...

But Could ... Such Games ...
Have Bred ... Such Ways ... ???

It's ...
Merely A Thought ...
So ... What Do You Say ... ?

At The End of The Day ...
People ... DISPLAY ...
An ... " ATTITUDE " ...
That Brings ... DISMAY ... !?!

I Try To REFRAIN ...
From Playing Such Games ...
That ... End In PAIN ... !!!!!

But Like Most Folks ...
My Patience DRAINS ...
Then I Act ... INSANE ...
Like ... " Frasier Crane " ...

Do You ...
Get What I'm Saying ... ?

Don't Make ... BIG PEOPLE ...
LOSE Their ..... " COOL " .....

You Could LOSE Your Life ... !!!!!!
For Being .... RUDE ....
REMEMBER That Line ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cos' ...
That One's ... TRUE ...

It Seems To Me ...
That ... Showing RESPECT ...
Makes Some Feel weak ...

So They ...
REFUSE To Do THIS ...
When Walking Streets ... !!!

But BLAMING Them ...
Is .... TOO EASY .... !!!

I Blame The ... " Things " ...
The Media ... FEEDS ...

Violence and ... BRUTALITY ...
Are Messages ... The Children SEE ...

Why NOT GIVE THEM ... " Poetry " ... !!!

From ...
Men and Women ...
Just Like ... Me ...

Instead of ... *** ...
and ... UPPITY Teens ... !!!
Cos' THIS Has NOW ...
INFECTED ... Streets ...

So ... Let Me Make ...
This Piece ... COMPLETE ...

It's COOL To Greet ...
People You ... Meet ...
With Some Respect ...

That's STRONG ...
NOT ... " Weak " ... !!!!!

What Does It ... " Cost " ... ?
To ... Use Your SPEECH ...
and Show ... RESPECT ...
To ... KEEP The Peace ...

Respect IS ... EARNED ...
Okay ... That's TRUE ... !!!

But Why Get ... HURT ...
Cos' ... Only A FOOL ...
Would Think That's Cool ... !?!

USE Your Mouth ...
It's A ... Useful Tool ... !!!

and USE These Words ...

THESE TWO .......

... " Thank You " ...
As said in the piece, seeing what I was seeing in human behaviour at the time, it seemed only right to put what I was thinking into rhyme .....

I Don't NEED THAT ...

To ... Get A High ... !!!  
When HIGHS Can Come ...  
From ... NATURAL Sights ...

Where's It Got Us ... ?

You WON'T ... Live Long ...
With ... " Guns and Clips " ... !!!!!!

When They're ATTACHED ...
To ... ANGRY Hips ... !!! ...

DON'T RUSH To Kiss Lips ...

Like ...

This Was THE THING ...
That Kept ... FULFILLING ...

When This Can Make ...
Some People ... LIE ... ?!?

" Eyes ON THE PRIZE ! " ...

But ... Selfish Guys ...
May Be ... SURPRISED ... !?!

To ... EARLIER Times ...

Cos' ...

Now THAT's NOT NICE ... !!!

Could You ...
Place A ... PRICE ...
On A ... Human Life ... ?!?

How About ... " A Child " ...

How About ... YOU ... ?
What Would You Do ... ?

If Someone ... BOUGHT ...
How You Could ... "MOVE" ... ???

Well ....
THAT Was THEN ...
and THIS Is ... NOW ... !!!

"Money Makes The

DON'T ................... IGNORE That ... !!!!!

THAT IS ... " Profound " ...

UNLIKE ... These Words ...

"I Live for Pounds !"

Live For ... LIVING ... !!!

NOT ... Blood Spilling ... !!!!
Or ... NEEDLESS Killing ... !!!!!

Cos' Things Like THIS ...
Give Lows ... NOT HIGHS ... !!!

Unlike LOVE ...
From ... Feminine Thighs ... !!!

I'll End This ... THERE ...
For ... " MONEY GUYS " ...
With ... VIOLENT Ties ... !!!

Cos I'd ...
Rather Have ... LOVE ...
and Try To Be ... WISE ...

Than ...
Live My Life ...

To .......

...... " Commercialise " ......

A Place of .... " HOPE "  
And ..... " Inner Peace " ......  
  
My Thanks Go Out ...  
To The ... " Master Jeff " ... !!!  
And The ... " Henry Family " ... !!!!!  
  
For Showing Me .... " LOVE " ....  
When I WASN'T ... " Loving Me " ... !!!!!  
  
These Are Words ...  
That Bring ... " Tears to my Eyes " ...  

Cos' They Take My Mind ...
Back To ... " Sad Times " ...
I Have Had ... "Within My Life" ... !!!
  
But Now I'm ... UP ... !!!!!!  
And Willing To ... FIGHT ... !!!!!!!!  
  
For .... " Peace and Love " ...  
Within ... " My Life " ... !!!
  
"Mum, rest in PEACE !  
I LOVE YOU STILL !  
More than any, Dollar Bill !"    
  
So Folks ....  
Let Me Ask You ?  
  
What Do You See ... ?  
  
An ... ARROGANT MAN ...  
of ..... " VANITY " ......  
  
Or A Man Who's ...  
... "EMBRACING" ....  
  
.... " SELF BELIEF " .... ?
Two, VERY DIFFERENT Things, in my opinion.

Do I ... " Fit In ? "
Do You ... " Fit In ? "

Is ... " Fitting In " ...
just ... One More Sin ... ?

"Fit" .... "Into This" ... !!!
"Fit" .... "Into That" ... !!!

You May Just ...
... "Fit Something" ...

That ...
May Leave You ....

..... "Trapped" ..... !!!!!

We Seem So Obsessed ... ?!?
With ... Being In Zones ...
Surrounded By Clones ...

But ...
Movies Have Proved ...
It Isn't ... All Bad ...
To Be ... Stuck ...

.... " Home Alone " .... !!!

I've Looked At This Subject ...
In ... Different Ways ...
Cos' ... This Is A Subject ...
We ... NEED To Inspect ...

Are YOU ... NOT Happy ... ?
With ... " WHO YOU ARE ? " ...

Would You Prefer ... ?
To ... Look Like A Star ... ?!?

Have Your Face ...
Built Like ... "Britney" ... ?

You ...
Must Be On ... CRACK ... !!!

And ...
Share Pipes With ... "Whitney" ... !!!!!

See ...
People Like ... THESE ...
AREN'T Worthy of ... " Pity " ... !?!
Cos' Actions Like These ...
Are CLEARLY ... Quite Needy ... !!!

They Want Some ... "Acceptance" ...
For ... BREAKING Gods' Blessings ... !!!

I'm NOT Real Religious ...
But People Like These ...

NEED ... Biblical Lessons ... !!!

You Can't ... Replicate ...
A Strangers' Resemblance ...!!!

Why Would You WANT TO ... ?!?!?!?

It Makes ... Little Sense ... ???

Surgeons ... REALLY Do This ...
To Earn ... " Pounds and Pence " ...

The Case That They Build ...
Has ... "little defence" ... !!!!!!!!!

The Body You're GIVEN ...
Is ... UNIQUE To You ...

To Change Such A Thing ...
Should Now Be ... " Forbidden " ...

But ... REMEMBER Folks ...
This Is ... MY OPINION ... !!!!!!

This Need To ... " Fit In " ...
To A Model ... "Size Ten" ...

Has Left ... " Mental Scars " ...
On ... Many Women ... !!!!!!!

But Of Course ... Who Am I ...
To ... Tell YOU What's Right ... !?!

I'm ... Offering Clues ...
Through ... Simple Insight ...

So ...
DON'T Come To Me ...
With ... Tears In Your Eyes ...
Because Your ... " 3rd Op " ...
Has ... RUINED Your Life ... !!!!

I'd Rather ... " Fit In " ...
To FIT ... " Natural Thighs "
Whilst ... Looking Into ...
A Womans' Third Eye ...

Or YES ... Better Still ...
A ... Great Pair of Hips ... !!!
Whilst ... Pressing Gently ...
Against ... JUICY Wet Lips ... !!!

I'm ... FLIPPING The Script ...
But These Things ... " Fit In " ...
Like ... " Holsters and Clips " ...

See ....
Why ... Join A Gang ... ?
To Fire ... " Bullets ??? " ...

Cos' Youth Who Do This ...
Are Being ... " Foolish ! " ...

These Are The People ...
Police ... NEED TO GRIP ... !!!!!

Instead of ... Disappearing ... ?
When ... Hurricanes HIT ... !!!!

Now ... I Want To FIT ...
Into ... One Simple Thing ...

The Arms of A ... " LADY " ...
Who ... DOESN'T Enlist ...
A Book To Explain ...
  
" Her Relationships " ... ?!?

They ALL Are ... " UNIQUE " ...

Yeah ...
Kind of Like ... " ME " ...
Cos' Something I NEED !!!
Is A Chance To Be ... FREE ... !!!!!

As I Would Want ...
My Lady To Be ... !!!

NOT With ... Each Man ...
She ... Happens To See ... !!!

Or With HER ... Body ... !!!

I'd Like Her To Keep ...
That Thing ... " Just For ME " ... !!!

But ...
FREE Wth Her Thoughts ...

And ...
FREE With Her Mind ...

NOT To ... " Fit In " ... !!!
With Those Who Are ... "blind" ...

Cos' People Like These ...
I've Tended To Find ...
Are People Who Want ...
To ... Leave You ...

... "In A Bind" ... !!!

GO .....
FIT IN With THEM ... !!!
And See What You Get ... ?!?

You May See Some Things ...
That ... "Confinement Brings" ... !!!

You Know What I Mean ...
A Room Where ... The Key ...
AIN'T Something You Keep ... !!!

A Room In A Place ...
Where You ... CANNOT Sleep ... !!!!!

Fitting In There ...

Leaves ...
Most People SCARED ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Many CAN'T Cope ...
With ... Having To Share ... !!!

So .....

FIT Their Neck Into ...
A NOOSE ... Well Prepared ...

Before ... Jumping Off ...
A ... Prison Owned Chair ... !!!

But Being .... " Unique " ....
Can Make People ... " weak "
Because You Get Treated ...
As If ... You're A FREAK ... !!!!!

But ...
Who Are ... These people ... ?
The Ones Who Look ... " Chic " ... ?

They're Probably ... Those ...
Who ... DON'T Like How I Speak ... !!!

Well ... My Poetry ...
Helps Me To Feel ... FREE ... !!!!!

So ... People Like These ...
Can Keep ... Judging Me ... !!!

cos' I Won't ... Rescind ... !!!
The Chance To Be ... ME ... !!!

And DON'T Think It's Right ...

To Simply ...

.... " Fit In " ....
An interesting one in TODAYS' World, however, at the time of writing this, things weren't quite like they are now !

Do You Have ... " Visions " ... ?
of A ... " Better Life " ...
  
" Visions of " ... A Home ...  
And A ... " Beautiful Wife " ...  
  
I Visualize .....
  
When I Have Time ...    
And Describe ... My Visions ...  
Through ... " Poetic Rhymes " ...  
  
Words and Pictures ...

... " Inner Visions " ...  
In ... " My Mind " .......
  
I Think You'll Find ...
Those Words ... AREN'T Mine ... !!!
  
Those Are ...
  
Stevie Wonders' ... Lines ... !!!!!
  
A Man With ... " Vision " ...
But ... " No Sight " ... !!!  
  
A Man ... Whose Words ...
SHINE Like ... SUNLIGHT ... !!!  
  
If You Were ... "blind" ...
  
What Would You Write ... ???
If ... What You HEARD ...
Became ... Your Sight ... ???
  
Stevie's Proved ...
Throughout His Life ...  
  
" Visions " ... Come ...  
From ... " DEEP INSIDE " ...  
And Come From ... " Those " ...  
Who ... USE Their Mind ... !!!  
  
... " Inner Visions " ...
... " Superstition " ...  
  
Both Are ...  
Stevies' Compositions ... !!!
  
His Visions Have ...
INSPIRED ME ... !!!
  
Since I Bought ...
" My First " ... LP ... !!!!!!
  
My Use of Words ...  
Has ... " Factual Visions " ... !!!!!
  
But Some ... Prefer ...  
To Write ... " Pure Fiction " ...
  
If That's ... " Your Way " ...  
Then .... " That's Okay " .... !!!
I Can't Tell You ... !!!  
What You Should Say ... !!!!!
  
But .....
Have An ... Opinion ...
  
So ...  
What's Your Position ... ???
  
Are ... YOUR Visions ... ?
FACT ... or ... FICTION ... ?
  
Do You .... Visualize .... ?  
A ... " Wonderland " ... ???  
  
Or ...  
Are You ... HERE ... ?
In ... This Here Land ... ???
  
Writing Things .....
  
For The Good of Man ... !?!
And YES .... Woman ....  
And ... MOST OF ALL ...  
For ... " Our Children " ... !!!!!
  
They NEED Some Truth ... !!!
AS DO ... Their friends ... !!!  
  
BEFORE ... They Walk ...
Into .... " PROBLEMS " .... !!!
  
Our Futures' ... Rest ...  
With ... Some of Them ...  
  
That's Why They NEED ... !!!!!
  
Visions ... of SENSE ... !!!
  
Rather Than Visions ...
of ... Pounds and Pence ...
  
Or ...  
  
of Things Like ...
  
... " FALSE Defence " ...  !!!!!
  
Visions ... SPREAD ...
By ... Governments ... !!!!!
  
Children NEED ... Visions ...  
of .... " TRUE LOVE " .... !!!!!
  
NOT ... of ALL ...  
This ... " Push and Shuv' " ... !!!!!
  
Visions of ....
A ... " LOVING Hug " ...  
From ... " Their Dad " ...  
To YES ... " Their Mum "... !!!!!
  
Visions ... WITHOUT ...  
... Knives or Guns ...  !!!!!!!!
  
Visions ... Where ...
They're ... Having FUN ... !!!!!
  
On A Beach ...
In ... Bajan' Sun ... !!!!!
  
Well ...  
That's ... " MY VISION " ... !!!!!
  
I PRAY It Comes .....
Long Before ... I'm 61 ... !!!
  
Visions ... RUN ...
Like ... Ben Johnson ... !!!!!
  
But ....
Drugs Are NOT ... !!! ...
The Answer Son ... !!!!!
  
Well .... Maybe SOME ... !!!!!
That Give ... FREEDOM ...  
  
FREEDOM of ... Thought ...
And .... EXPRESSION ....  
  
Come On Now ... !!!
You Know The Ones' ...  
  
Those That NEED ... !!!
Some ... Natural Sun ... !!!!!  
  
Those That ... " Herbsman' " ....
Like To ... " Bun' " ... !!!!!
  
Now ...  
BEFORE They Start ...
These AREN'T Things ...
For Our ... Children ... !!!
  
But ...
  
STRONG WILLED Men ...  
Like .... " Bob Dylan " ....  
  
Men With ... Visions ...  
NOT ... "Conditioned" ... !!!
  
Men Whose Inscriptions ...  
EXPOSE ...  VILLAINS ... !!!!!!!!!!
  
NEEDING Convictions ... !!!!!
  
I Guess That's How ... ?
I'd ... Like To Be ...  
  
A Man ... " Revered " ...  
For .....  " His Poetry " ..... !!!!!
  
A Man Who ...
CHALLENGED ... "Society" ... !!!!!
  
and ... ALL It's ...
IMPROPRIETIES ... !!!!!
  
These Beliefs ....
Rest ... DEEP IN ME ... !!!
and Continually GROW ...  
Just Like A .... " Tree " ....  
  
" Branching Out " ...............................................................
  
And Bearing Leaves ...  
  
FREE To ... " Be " ...
and FREE To ... " See "  
  
A World of ... LOVE ...
And .....  " UNITY " ...... !!!!!
  
I Visualise ... BEAUTY ...  
  
NOT ... Needless Killing ... !!!
  
These Words I've Written ...
Are Just An ... " Edition " ...
of My ... Lyrical Mission ...
  
Cos' ... Poetic Usage ...  
of .... " Good Diction " ....  
  
Can Give You ...  
... " Hope " ...
  
and YES ...  
  
Such ...
  
.... " Visions " ....
As said, basically inspired by Stevie Wonder,
and especially, the album, Inner Visions,

Before I Fall .........................................
  
Into The Hands ...
of A Girl Whose Life's A ...  
  
........ " Sham" .......
  
Saying ... One Thing ...
But Doing ... Another ... ?!?

RUSHING Home ...
To Watch ... "Big Brother" ... !!!!!
  
Girls Like THESE ... !!!
Should NOT BE ... Mothers ... !!!

Because Their Child ...
Will Surely ... SUFFER ... !!!!!
  
Suffer FROM .............................
Her ... " Confusion " ... ?!?
  
Come On Girls ...
I'm ... NOT The One ... !!!!!
  
Mess With Me ...
And You'll Be ...  

... " STUNNED " ... !!!!!
  
NOT With ... Violence ...  
Or A .... " Gun " .... !!! ....
  
But With ... "THIS" ...  

Simple ... " Wisdom " ...
  
WAKEY WAKEY ... !!!
  
"Rise and shine" ...
Face The World ...
and Do What's Right ... !!!
  
DON'T Get ... "Trapped" ...  
In ..... "Your Mirage" ..... !!!!

Or ... A World ....
of ... " Tarot Cards " ...
  
See Yourself ...
For Who ... YOU ARE ... !!!
  
Don't Do Things ...
That You'll ... REGRET ... !!!
Like ... JUMPING IN ...
A ... STRANGERS Bed ... !!!!!

Make ... A STAND ...
And ... STICK TO IT ... !!!!!
  
Instead of S P R E A D I N G ...
THOSE ... WET LIPS ... !!!!!
  
DON'T ... Get VEX ... !!!
or ... Get UPSET ....
Because ... " CONFUSION " ...
RULED .... Your Head .... !?!
  
"Yeah, but you,
were making moves !!!"
  
"So were you, which goes to prove,
you were wanting me to woo !
Come on now, did I force you,
to come and sleep, in my bedroom ?"
  
"No, but now I feel abused !
We moved to fast !
I've thought it through,
and don't think that,
I'm right for you !!!"
  
"Okay, that's cool,
but, let me prove
something to you,
we kissed and stuff,
and then we hugged,
but, when I said,
we should get up
you put me in,
a tight armlock ?
Now you're saying,
you wanted to TALK ?!?
It seems you have
some things to sort
inside your mind.
Take that walk
I'll give you time,
but, don't complain
if I refrain, from letting you,
confuse my brain !
Figure out, what it is you need,
then come back, and talk to me.
Otherwise, let's both be free,
to be with, who we want to be !
But, don't be playing, games with me
My name's Big Virge, not Monopoly !"
Life to me, is not a dream
Talk is cheap, but, actions speak.
So, stop your talk, and walk the walk !"
Don't kiss me, on our first date !
and change your mind, the very next day ?"
Come on now,  give me a break !
Such confusion, breeds delusion,
and a premature conclusion !"
  
"I don't know you !!!
You don't know me !!!
You may be right ?
but let's wait and see.
Let's take some time,
the date went fine !
It's not my fault,
you crossed the line !
What can I say ?
I'm a **** guy !
Who'll give you lows,
as well as HIGHS !  
Every couple,
has their troubles !
and sometimes, yes,
fall down and stumble,
but, getting up,
is part of the fun,
and helps reduce,
our confusion"
  
"Opposites attract,
like, white and black
I suggest, you remember that !"
  
"But, firstly you,
must face the facts,
about the things,
you sometimes do,
Then I can, make love to you !"
  
Those Are Words ...
On Which To ... CHEW ...
  
Take Some Time ...
And ... Think It Through ...  
And Then ...  You Won't Be ...
  
So ....
  
...  " Confused " ... ?!?
Written about a woman, who was also a poet !

So, maybe the confusion came from that factor, as much as anything else !

However, this was written with a smile on my face, when I thought of the CRAZINESS that happened within days of us engaging in let's say, intimacies .... !!!!!

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1498351/Two-shot-dead-in-Harvey-Nichols.html

... and an article stating that students needed to police uni campuses... !!! Again, some 15 years on, it's disturbing to see, where we now are with these issues, and, after The recent, Ohio & El Paso mass shootings in the US, it seems these words sadly, still need to be heard !!!

In Places That Water ...  
Just ... Should NOT Be ... ?!?  
  
KILLING Sprees ...  
From Kids To ... Trees ...  
  
NATURAL Things ...  
CAN'T Cop A ... " Plea " ... !!!  
  
It Just REACTS ...  
With ... VIOLENT Seas ... !!!

The Death of ...

SO MANY ... " Grieve " ...  
From Being Bereaved ...  
  
It Seems We Just ...

A Way For ... ALL ...

Death Is ... NATURAL ...  
Just Like ... " BIRTH " ...  
  
But Guns Are Things ...

I Don't Hold Much Hope ...  
  
But Writing Things ...  
Helps Me To ... " Cope " ... !!!  
  
COPE With PRESSURES ...  
We ... Create ...  

and Try To Find ...  
A ... BETTER Fate ...

Our Streets At Night ... !!!!!  
  
But MANY Think ...  
This ... ISN'T Right ... ?!?  
  
Well I Suggest ...  
You Check The News ...  
  
Look and SEE ...  
How Many ... DIE ... !!!  
  
NOT Because ...  
They've Reached ....................................... " Old Age ".  
  
But ...  
BECAUSE of ... Someone's RAGE ... !!!!!  
  
Words I ... " Put " ...  
From Pen To Page ...  
Stake My CLAIM ...  
To Be ... " Poetry's Sage " ...  
  
Worthy of A Place ...  
On ... " ANY Stage " ... !!!  
  
So ...  
What Will It Take ...  
For Me To ... BREAK ...  
The Barriers Placed ...

By Those Thinking ...  
  
... " WHO IS HE !?! " ...
  
THOSE Who Think ...  
I SHOULDN'T Say ...

cos' Life Right Now ...  
Is NOT ... " A Game " ... !!!  
  
I'm TRYING To Find ...  
A ... BETTER WAY ...  
For ... US To Be ...  
So WE Can CLAIM ...  
  
A Future FILLED ...  
With ... BRIGHTER Days ... !!!  
  
FREEDOM ..................................................  
WITHOUT .................................................................­........... Disarray ... !!!!!  
  
Places Where ...  
Our Kids CAN PLAY ...

DON'T YOU ...

I'd LIKE To Think ...  
That SOME OF YOU ... DO ... !!!

Just DON'T ... " PRESUME " ...  
You'll ... ALWAYS LIKE ...  
Thoughts I HOLD ... "Inside My Mind" ...

Pretty HARD Sometimes ...

COME ON NOW ... !!!  
For ... HEAVENS SAKE ... !!!!  
  
I'd Rather ... " FIND " ...  
A TRUE ... " Soul Mate " ...  
Than Have Enough Cash ...  
To Buy The WHOLE CAKE ... !!!!!  
  
One Thing You CAN'T BUY ...  
Is ... Your Own FATE ... !!!  
  
Can't We See ...............  
That We Would Be ....  
  
Much BETTER Placed ...  
  
If We ...  

ACCEPTED Each Other ...  
Regardless of ......  
  
... " Our Gender or Race " ...  
  
I WANT To See ...  
A ... " PEACE FILLED State " ...  
  
So ...  
Let Me Ask You THIS ...  
  
... " What Will It Take ? " ...
It was the situation in New Orleans at the time, that inspired this. The pitiful response, and lack of any kind of urgency to help the poor, angered and saddened me.

I guess people should be thankful it wasn't the current president managing the situation, now THAT would be depressing !

Not that Mr. Bush proved himself to be of a more compassionate breed, in the slightest !

What Would ... YOU DO ... !?!
  
If You Were ...

By Those Who ... CLAIM ...

What Would YOU DO ... ?!?
To Stay ... ALIVE ... !?!
  
Would You ... LOOT ... ?
Would You ... SHOOT ... ?
Would You ... **** ...

Or Get .... IRATE .... ?
  
Or Would You ... " just " ...
Accept ... Your FATE ... ?!?!?
  
Whilst You Looked ...
At An ... EMPTY Plate ...
  
These Are Scenes ...
Like ... New Orleans ...
  
I Can't Believe ...
The Things I've ... SEEN ... !?!
  
S H A T T E R E D ... " Dreams " ... !!!
and Slates now ... CLEAN ...  
  
I Hope You're Getting ...
... What I Mean ... !!!
  
FLOODS of Water ...
KILLING Daughters ... !!!
  
NOTHING Left ...
of Bricks and ... Mortar ... !!!
  
People ... "TRAPPED" ...
In A State of ... TRAUMA ...
  
STUCK IN ... "The Corner" ...
of A ... "BODY FILLED Sauna" ... !!!
  
WHERE Was ................................................... " Help " ... ???
When It Was .... NEEDED .... ?!?
  
Even YES ...
When People ... PLEADED ... !?!?!
  
NOWHERE .......................................
....To Be ........................................ Found .... !!?!!
  
Troops were ... YES ...
On ................................................ Foreign Grounds .....
FIGHTING Those In ... Other Towns ... ?!?
  
NOW ... If YOU Were ...
Inside ... "The Dome" ...
KNOWING That ...  
You'd LOST Your Home ... !!!
  
How Would ... ???

THOSE Words ... NOW Sound ...
If You KNEW ... Inside Your Heart ...
YOUR CHILDREN Had Now ... DROWNED ... !!!!!
  
I'd Feel Like ... " LASSIE " ...
With ... NO BONE ... !!!
  
AND Might Want To ...
TOPPLE ... Thrones ... !?!
  
Thrones of ... THOSE ...
Who CLEARLY ... " CHOSE " ...
To ...... Turn Their Back ...

Why Send Those ...

In A Time of ... TRAGEDY ... !!!!!!!

But ...
Here's The POINT ...
  
What Would YOU DO ... ?!?
Be ... CIVILISED ...
When TRAPPED INSIDE ...
A City Facing ... GENOCIDE ... !!!?!!!
  
It's EASY To ... " Sit " ...
and ... Make A Case ...
  
Whilst ...........  
Watching from ..................
  
A ... " Safer Place " ...
  
But ... That's The Same ...
For ... ALL Who Watched ...
The ... HURRICANE ... !!!!!!
and Make The CLAIM ...
That VICTIMS Acted ...
With ... NO SHAME ... !!!
  
Like Those WITH ...
  
AIR FORCE ONE ...
.... Airplanes .... !!!!!!  
  
The Point of THIS ...
Is To .......................... RESIST ........
  
" Reports of  " ...
  
CRIME and WICKEDNESS .....
  
AMERICA ...
Has NOW Been SHAMED ... !!!
  
PEOPLE Were ...
Just Left To ... DIE ... ?!?
  
SOMEONE Should ...
NOW TAKE ... Some Blame ...  

For ...
Watching This ... U N F O L D ...
  
How Could These OFFICIALS ...  
Be .... SO COLD .... !!!! ? !!!!
  
To Treat These PEOPLE ...
Just Like ...... " Slaves " ......
In Those ... " Days of Old " ... !?!
  
Well ... THESE Are Days ...
That Seem ... THE SAME ... ?!!!?
  
It Seems That Things ...
Just ... HAVE NOT Changed ... !?!

In ... " POVERTY " ...
  
SOME White People ...
STILL Hold ... " Keys " ...
  
KEYS To ... " Things " ...
From ... " Economies " ...
Right Down To ...  
Our ... " DESTINIES " ... !!!
  
So ...
If You FACED ...
Problems Like THESE ...
  
Wouldn't YOU ... Feel Blue ... ???
  
Well Nowadays ...
You MAY Just ... " FIND " ...  
That Nature's ... Giving CLUES ... !!!
  
We ALL ... Now Face ...
Some ... HORRID Times ...
  
These Words Are Just ...  
....... " My View " .......
  
But IF MY Words ...
Applied To ... YOU ...
  
In TRUTH ....
  
" What Would You Do ? "
Obviously written soon after Katrina, from the outside looking in, it seemed much like a " 3rd World " effort, in terms of the response the US Government provided, but sadly, many of these words have run true subsequently, I won't mention the current US President, however, from heatwaves to the treatment of families living in America, until recently, things haven't got much better.

When You Are ...
RELAXED And ... " Chilled " ...

Does It Make You ...

That's Something ...
To Cast Some ... " Doubt " ... ???
On What ... MATTERS ... !!!

Chilling ... CAN ...
Do This ... For You ...

Make You ... " THINK " ...
RELAX and ... " Stew " ...
On The ... Things ...
That You've Been Through ...

Things You've Done ...
When Feeling ... " Blue " ...

Or ... The Things ...
That Made You ... SMILE ... !!!

When ... You Wore ...
The ... Latest Styles ... !!!

But ... When You Do ...
and Then ... Think Back .................................................................­....

Were There Things ...
You ... NEVER Had ... ?

Like ... TRUE LOVE ...
Or A ... "HUG" ...
From Your ... " Mum " ...

Or THAT ... Someone ... ???
Who You ... CRAVED ...
To Be ... THE ONE ...
To Share Your ... " Dreams " ...

NOT ... " Your Car " ...
OR Your ... " New Shoes " ...

But THIS THING ...

This Thing Called ... YOU ... !!!

Need I Offer ... Any Clues ... ?!?

Chilling Is ...
A ... WONDROUS Thing ... !!!

Better THAT ...
Than ... Blood SPILLING ... !!!

I Recognise ......

Then ...
Sit and Write ...

If It's ... Good ...
I Then ... RECITE ... !!!
Where There Is ...
An ... OPEN Mic ...

Then Like ... James ...
I'm .............................................................. OUT OF Sight ........... !!!!!

COVERED By ...
The Shroud of ... "Night" ...

Whilst I .................. Search ............................................................
To Find The ... LIGHT ...

This Is Where ...
I Then ... FULFIL ...
By Usage of ... PC or Quill ...

To Spread THE WORD ...
oF YES ... " Big Virge " ... !!!!

Ahhhhh .......
That's ME ...

A Man Who Writes ...
Some Poetry ...
Based On Things ...

This Things We Call ...

........ REALITY .........

This Is NO ...
Documentary ... !!!

Or A ... " Soap " ...

Let's ...
Wait and See ...........................................

If I'm Deemed ...
To Be .... WORTHY ....

To Be ....... " Published " ......
For My ... " Transcripts " ...

THAT Day Will Be ...

TRULY ... FULFILLING ... !!!!!

But Whilst I ... " Wait " ...

I'll Keep On .........

........ " Chilling " .........
A cool subject to get into, and thankfully I have subsequently managed to chill in a manner reflective of some of these words ......

Just Ask ..... " Malcolm Glazer " ..... !!!

Cos' ... RED DEVIL Fans ...
DON'T Believe He's ... Their SAVIOUR ... !!!

But CHECK OUT ... "His STASH" ...
of ... DOLLAR Type PAPER ... !!!

They CLAIM ....
He's ... "In DEBT" ...
But ... Hold on A Sec' ...
He ... Bought Up That Club ...
WITHOUT ... Bouncing Cheques ... !?!

These People With ... POWER ...
Are SURE To .... " COLLECT " .... !!!

While Those WITHOUT .................................................. Money ...........
KEEP Making .... Those BETS ...
In EVERY ... " Bookmaker " ...

So Where's .......................................
........................... Malcolm Glazer .................... ? ! ? ! ?

See ....

POWER Is ... Something ...
That's NOT FOR ... " The Poor " ... !!!

They Use These Bank BREAKERS ...
From Bookies To ... ****** ...
To KEEP YOU From Moving ...
Through ... POWERFUL Doors ... !!!

Doors of ... CONGRESS ...

Or .....

Doors To ... THE LORDS ...

THOSE Who ... "HOLD POWER" ...
Like Sweetbread Holds FLOUR ... !!!

They Make ...
By The ... Hour ...
To BUILD ... " Office TOWERS " ...

And Then Have THE CHEEK ...
To GIVE ... IDIOTS POWER .... !?!?!

From Women To ... Men ...
They've ALWAYS ... " Set Trends " ...
That KEEP ON Repeating ...

AGAIN and AGAIN ......

From ...
TREACHEROUS Wars ...
To ... Todays' ...
High Street ****** ...

Words That I'm Saying ...

So ...
When Will We ... CHANGE ... ?!!!?

and CHANGE How We PLAY ...

Life's ...
SINISTER ... " Game " ...

YES ...

...... That ......

Just ISN'T ... "tame" ... !!!!!

I'M SICK of ... " These People " ...

What Have You DONE ... ?
To PROVE You're ... " The ONE " ... ?!?

These People AREN'T .... " NEO " ....

The visions I had at the time,
of what Power did to people, inspired this piece.

I Guess I Am .... THAT GUY ....
Who'll Get The ... EVIL EYE ...

For Being ... WHO I AM ...
And ... NOT Giving A **** ... !!!!!

A **** About ...
What You Think ...
When I Use My Mouth ...

I'll Speak MY MIND ...
... Until I DIE ... !!!!!

It's NOT My Fault ...
If You Can't Get Beyond ...
What You .... " Contrive " ....

A Life of ... STRIFE ...
A Life of ... Lies ...

A Life Where You ...
Have Been ... "Deprived" ...

People Say That ....

" I'm TOO BLUNT ! " ...

That Part of Me ...
Comes From ... MY MUM ... !!!

Some Have Said ....

" Virgil, you preach ! " ....

Do You ...
SEE ME On A Street ... ?

TELLING YOU .....
How You SHOULD BE ... ?!?

NO ... You DON'T ...
Cos' That's NOT ME ... !!!!!

If ... I Am ...
TOO BLUNT For You ... !!!!!
I Think YOU KNOW ...
What You Should Do ...

It's ... NO DIG ...
But Simple TRUTH ... !!!

If We Don't Talk ...
We'll BOTH Be Cool ... !!!!!!

Do I Rile You UP ?
Do I Say Wrong Stuff ?

Or ...
Are You Simply ... ?
In A ... HUFF ... ?

I'm Sorry ...
If I've ... UPSET YOU ...
REMEMBER That ...
DON'T Be A FOOL ... !!!!!

Think of Those ...
Who ... ABUSE You ... !!!!!

EVEN With ...
NO **** Excuse ... ?!!!?

Is That ... ME ... ???

That's Up To ... " YOU " ...
But Things I've Done ...
Should PROVE To You ...

I'm A Man ....
That ... RESPECTS YOU ... !!!

BUT ... NOT If You ...
Can't Take THE TRUTH ... !!!!!

BLUNT ... Is ME ... !!!
That's How I AM ...

I'm NOT CHANGING ...
That's My STAND ... !!!!!!

Compromise ....
Can Make You ... weak ... !!!!!

That's NOT ME ...
So I ... Will Speak ... !!!!!

If You ...
DO NOT ...
Like ... My Stance ...

Let's Just Make This ...
Our ... LAST DANCE ... !!!!!

Girl or Man .....
I Just Won't Change ...

Why Should I ...
Start Being ... FAKE ... ?!?

I'm .... SICK of Things ...
I'm .... Going Through ...

I'm ANGRY TOO ...
It's NOT JUST YOU ... !!!!!

EXPRESS Yourself ... !!!!!
Don't BLOW A Fuse ... !!!!!!

But ....
Most of All ....

PLEASE ...
Don't Accuse ...

I'm NOT HAVING ...
Pops At ... YOU ... !!!!

When You SHOUT ...
I'm Staying ... COOL ...

Don’t You Think ...
That Being ... Cool ...
Will HELP YOU Handle ...
Feeling ... “ Blue “ ... ???

In Days Like These ...
You’d BETTER Choose ...

To ........

CHANNEL ... Anger ...
KEEP Your Cool ... !!!

cos' Kids These days ...
Don’t Take ABUSE ... !!!

Nowadays .....
They’re KILLERS TOO ... !!!

I Am NOT ...
Your ENEMY ... !!!!!!

Even If ...
I ... Seem To Be ...

I Believe ...
In ... Being FREE ... !!!!

FREE With Words ...
You Want To Speak ... !!!

EVEN WHEN ...
They SLAP A Cheek ... !!!

Better THAT ...
Than ... Fighting Me ... !!!!!

Don’t You See ...
A Man of ... “ Peace “ ...
When You See ...
The Way I Be ... ???

Arguments ....
Are Just Like WARS ... !!!!!

What’s The Point ...
If No-One ... Scores ... ?!?

This Is WHY ....
I’ve Written THIS ...

NOT TO ...
Prove A Point ...
or ... DISS ... !!!!!

I Just Want ... “ Relationships “ ...
BUILT On ... “ TRUST “ ...
and ... WITTY Quips ... !!!!!

Sometimes ....
What Comes ...
OFF The Lips ....

Can Make People ...
Want To ... QUIT ...

I DON’T WANT ...
To Feel Like This ... !!!!!

Like ...
When We Talk ...

I Should ... “ Enlist “ ...

A Verbal Form ...
of ... CENSORSHIP ... !!!!!

I Guess That’s WHY ... ?!?
Some People Try ...
To ... Give Me Looks ...

With .....

..... “ Evil Eyes “ ..... !!!
Looks can tell you much, however, as the poem suggests, sometimes it's what's said, that shows how some people are actually, always looking at you, through Evil Eyes ....

"Come on Virgil,

"CHECK My terms of employment !

Right down there, on the dotted line !"
  
"Well, I can't say,
too much on that ?"
  
"It's cool, I know you

"It's a job i've got to do !"
  
"Yeah OK, you stupid fool !
Those above, are using you,
to do the deed, that they know they can't do !
Push me out, without virtue !
I'll be looking, BELIEVE ME !
Can I have my old CV ?"
  
"Sorry, but we didn't keep,
a copy of your old CV !"
  
"You are kidding me !
You don't hold a copy,
of my CV ?"
  
"The system then,
was pretty bad,
CV's had, strange locations ?"
  
"You should be, locked in prison !
Things like that, have no defence !"
  
"It is NOT, personnel's duty,
to take care of ANYONE's CV !"
  
"Whatever, are you done with me !"
  
"NO Virgil, you're not happy !"
  
"What do you expect,
when you're messing with me !
Hours i've done, have proved loyalty !
You don't give a ****, about things I need !
You people are a really sick breed !
All you do is live for greed,
and to USE, people like me !
Power Trips, and THEIR Money !
YES You fool, can't you see ?
The cash you make, compared to theirs,
Those who have, controlling shares !
Keep on doing, what you do !
One day it, just might be YOU ?
Facing someone, pulling stunts,
who will stress you, just for fun !"
  
"DO WHAT'S RIGHT
Why be SO THICK !
  
Can't You SEE ... ?!?
  
"They're TRYING IT ... "
Rough times back at one of my old jobs, so, not word for word, but essentially, how I felt after having a personnel, " Leaving Interview ", just before leaving ....

The Things ... I SEE ... ?

Judgements Made ...
By ... " Met' Police " ...

RAIDING Homes ....

cos of This ...
A ... TRUE Story ...

A Friend of Mine ...
A Young ... " Asian " ...

Was On A Train ...
With .... " Caucasians " ...

When They SAW ...

of ... This Thing ...
That We Call ........

...... " FEAR " ......
Fear is a manipulative tool, and, as terrible as these tragedies and bombings have become, there needs to be some thought, rather than blind faith in what the governments feed us as being the truth. London in 2K5, became a hot bed of sirens, arrests & FEAR, that made me write this .....

Why Do People ... " HATE " ... ?!?

Because of Someone's ... " Race " ... ?
Because of Their ... " Religion " ... ?
or Because Someone's ... " *** " ... ?

I Don't Believe In ... HATE ... !!!
But Hate Is Getting ... GREAT ... !!!

Because of Things We're SEEING ...
On Our Streets ... TODAY ... !!!

I Don't Believe In ... Guns ... !!!
I Don't Believe In ... Bombs ... !!!

So ...
Let Me Ask THIS QUESTION ... !?!

WHO Made ATOMIC Bombs ... ?!?

Was It ... MUSLIMS ... ?
Was It ... BLACKS ... ?

Let's Look Back .................................................
and Find ............................................... THE FACTS ............ !!!

Bombs Were Made By ... SCIENTISTS ...
Scientists Who WEREN'T Muslims ... !!!

Let's Just ...... THINK ......
Were They ... Black ... ???

I Think ... NOT ...
What's Up With THAT ... !?!

If You ... Think Back ......................................
Words Like THESE ...
Were ... Matter of FACT ... !!!

" No Irish, Dogs,
and KEEP OUT .... Blacks .... !!!!! "

These Were Words ...
Blacks HAD TO SEE ... !!!
On ... LONDON Streets ...
In The ... " Sixties " ...

NOW It's ... CLAIMED ...
That ... " WE ARE FREE " ... !!!

FREE From .............................. FEAR ........
and .................................................................­. POVERTY ............. !!!!!

If That's ... TRUE ... ?

Why Do We Face ...
A Country NOW ...
That's Spreading HATE ... !!!

HATE of ... MUSLIMS ...
HATE of ... BLACKS ...
HATRED cos' of ...

... BOMB ATTACKS ... !!!!!

Maybe I'm Just ... "PARANOID" ... !!!?!!!

OF COURSE I AM ... !!!!!!
When Guns Are ... " TOYS " ...

Used To ... **** ...
By ... " Police BOYS " ... !!!!!

Some of THEM ...
Who Harbour ... "HATE" ... !!!

HATRED Based ...
On My ... " BLACK FACE " ... !!!

DON'T ... Deny ...
DON'T Even ... TRY ... !!!

MANY Now ...
Are Being .......................... " Found " ...........

From Texts They Send ...
To ... Training Grounds ...
Right To ... " Londons' Underground " ...

Shooting Asians ...
DEAD In Town .... !!!

"BOMBERS NEED
TO BE PUT DOWN !!!”

Things They're Doing ...
MAKE ME FROWN ... !!! ...

But I'm ... NOT ONE ...
So ... CAREFUL NOW ... !!!!!

DON'T ... SHOOT Me ...
Because of ... HATE ... !!!

Shoot Me When ...
You Have A CASE ... !!!

Try ...
THIS PHRASE ... !!!

Yes ... " FALSE ALARM " ...

What I'm Saying ...
Is .... STAY CALM .... !!!

Try THE ... " U.S " ...
To FIND ... ****** ... !!!

My Hands Are CLEAN ...
Look IN ... " My Palm " ...

Those LAST WORDS ...
Reflect ... My Ways ...

I'm A Man ...
Who REJECTS ....................................................... HATE ... !!!!!

Can Politicians ....
Say The ... SAME ... ?!?

Or ... Are They Playing ...
DEADLY ... " Games " ... !?!

SPREADING .... HATE ....
With ... Things They Say ... ?!?

While Streets Become ...
A Fate FILLED ... Place ...

Where Do ..................................... THEY LIVE ............ ?!?

YES .......................................................... FAR Awaaaaayyyy .... !!!!

That's The ... PROBLEM ... !!!
THEY ........... DON'T FACE .......

HATRED THROWN ...
At Those ... Like ME ...

But When I Think ...
of Where ... I BE ...

Those Around ...
Are Nice To Me ...
Cos' They SEE ...
I'm ... Hatred FREE ... !!!!

Sometimes YES ...
We .... DISAGREE ... !!!

But ...
Why Be HATEFUL ... ?!?
I CAN'T See ...
How That HELPS A Community ... ?!?

Times Are TROUBLED ...

BELIEVE Me ... !!!!!

Could We Face ...
Todays' ... NAZIS ... !?!

If We DO ...
Let's Wait and SEE ...
What This Means ...
For ... HUMANITY ...

Freedom of Speech ...
Through ... Poetry ...
Is My ... LAST MOVE ...
To Send To You ...

A Message Saying ...

Find The TRUTH ...

BEFORE Acting ...
ALL UNCOUTH ... !!!

IGNORANCE ...
Affects Our Youth ... !!!

LOOK Around ...
They're ... " Living Proof " ...

Hatred BREEDS ...
A ... VOLATILE State ... !!!!!

So ...
Hear My Words ...
Do What's RIGHT And ...

DISMISS .................................................................­.............................

..... " HATE " ....
It's pretty simple, hatred doesn't serve humanity well.

YOUR ... "LIE FILLED Attacks" ... !!!
  
ESPECIALLY When ...

They ...
DON'T KNOW ... " The Facts " ....
  
But YOU ... Mr. Clarke ...
MUST THINK You're A ... " GOD " ... !?!
To ... KEEP ON Suggesting ...
  
"It's THAT Muslim Lot !"
  
What About ... " FAWKES " ... ?!?
  
REMEMBER ...
THAT ... " Plot " ... ?!?
  
Oh ...
HE WAS ... " A Muslim " ... !!!
  
Of Course ... I FORGOT ... !!!?!!!
  
I Want To ... EXPRESS ...
I Want To Feel ... BLESSED ...
  
So ...
TELL The ... " Police " ...
I'm NOT A ... " Suspect " ... !!!!!
  
That JUST ... ISN'T Me ... !!!!!
  
Your Judgements Are ... "weak" ... !!!
The Judgements You're Making ...
Are ...................
  
IN NEED of ......... " Sleep " ......... !!!
  
NOT Just ... For Now ...
But ..... ETERNITY ..... !!!!!!!
  
Just Like The Way ......
You're USING ... Police ...
To Do ... What They WANT ...
To ... People Like ... ME ... !!!!  
  
I Work ... EVERYDAY ...
While MP's Make HAY ...  
  
I'm SICK of ... The BILLS ...
I'm Having To PAY ... !!!!!!!
  
When ...
Travel ... IN TOWN ...
Is CLEARLY ... Unsafe ... !!!!!!!!!
  
We Pay ... SO MUCH TAX ... !!!!!!!
For YOU To ...................... " Sit back " ..................................
and TALK About .... BOMBS ....
  
But ...
Where Are ... YOUR FACTS ... ???
  
I'm NOT A ... School Teacher ...
I'm NOT HERE To ... " Teach " ... !!!
  
I'll Say It ... AGAIN ...
  
I RECITE ...
But DON'T ... Preach ... !!!
  
But ...

For My ... PROTECTION ...
I'll Make An ... EXCEPTION ... !!!
  
I'm PREACHING To ..... YOU .... !!!!!
  
It REALLY AIN'T Cool ...
To Start This ... PROCESSION ... !!!
  
cos' ...  "Social Depression" ...
Can Lead To ... AGGRESSION ...
  
And ......

That's What You'll Get ...  
  
If You ... "RESTRICT" ...
  
..... " Expression " .....
At the time, The Home Secretary, A certain Charles Clarke, was basically being ridiculous, as were the government and most people regarding the horrific events surrounding the bombing, so I figured i'd try to poetically write a letter of sorts to see why expression had become a target as well as Muslims.

Let Me Make This ...
  
... CLEAR To You ... !!!  
    
I'm NOT PREACHING ...  
That's The ... TRUTH ... !!!!  
    
You ...  
DON'T Have To Read ...  
If You ... Don't Want To ... !!!  
    
Trust Me On This ... !!!  
If You Don't ... That's Cool ...  
    
I'm Just ...  
Passing On ... My Views ...  
Just Like ... " Politicians Do " ...  
    
Those You VOTE FOR ... !!!  
Who ... ***** YOU ... ?!?  
    
Can't I Say ...  
What's ON My Mind ... ???  
    
I Guess NOT ...  
In ... " Modern Times " ... ?!?  
    
These Are Times ...  
Like ... " Days of Old " ...  
    
When Blacks Were ... "Slaves" ...  
    
" DO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD ! "  
    
Things In TRUTH ...  
Are STILL ... The Same ...  
    
When Things Go WRONG ...  
" WE'RE THE ONES  " ...    
Who ... Take The BLAME ... !!!  
    
Am I ... " Preaching " ...  
Yet AGAIN ... !?!  
    
Sorry Folks ...  
You Should COMPLAIN ... !!!  
    
While MORE Blacks ...  
Just Go ... "INSANE" ... !!!  
cos' of ... PRESSURES ...  
ON OUR ... Brain ...  
    
I Don't Live ...  
Like ... Most of You ...    
    
That's Why I Write ...  
The Way I Do ...  
    
So ...  
When You ... READ ...  
DON'T Say ... I PREACH ... !!!  
    
It's ... My Time ...  
To Write In ... Rhyme ...  
    
This Goes Back ...  
To My ... Earlier Line ...  
    
DON'T Say I PREACH ...  
and We'll Be Fine ... !!!  
    
One Thing I've Learnt ...  
About ... Mankind ...  
Is ... Blacks CAN'T SAY ...  
What's ON ... " Their Mind " ...  
    
cos' White Folks KNOW ...  
The ... " Grand Design " ...  
    
This ... MUST MEAN ...  
That I CAN'T Teach ... !!!  
But REALLY ...  
    
Can You Say I PREACH ... ?!?  
    
Do I ... " Have " ...  
A ... " Leather Seat " ... ?  
In The ... " House of Lords " ...  
Where ... White Men PREACH ... !!!  
    
NO ... I DON'T ... !!!  
cos' I CAN'T .................................................................­................. Reach ......  
    
A Place Like ... THAT ...  
With Things I Speak ....  
    
Maybe I ... CAN ...  
Let's Wait and See ...  
    
But MOST White Folk ...  
Will NOT Believe ...  
    
The Things I Say ...  
That ... I HAVE Seen ... !!!  
    
"IT'S JUST NOT TRUE !  
HE'S GOT SCREWS LOOSE !"  
    
It's NO SURPRISE ... !!!  
When You ABUSE ...  
and ... Listen When ...  
  
The Words ... " SUIT YOU " ...  
    
But HERE'S The Thing ...  
Black People TOO ...  
    
DISMISS .................................................................­....... The Truth ................  
    
When Black Mens' Words ...  
Affect ... " Their Coup " ...  
    
"WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS !  
SAYING THINGS ABOUT OUR KIDS !"  
    
Don't Our Kids ...  
Need Teaching TOO ... !?!  
    
"Of course they do,  
but in White Schools !"  
    
See ...  
Here's The Thing ...  
    
Black Folk ... BELIEVE ...  
In ... " White Mans' Ways " ...    
    
But DON'T BELIEVE ...  
What ... STRONG Blacks Say ... ?!?  
    
We'd Rather Hear ...  
    
A ... " 50 Cent " ...  
Than Listen To ...  
Chuck or KRS' ... !?!  
    
MOST Young Rappers ...  
Just Talk ... MESS ... !!!    
    
But it's OKAY ...  
For Them To ... PREACH ...  
    
While Our Children ...  
DIE On ... Streets ... !?!?!  
cos' of ... " WORDS " ...  
They Hear Them Speak ...    
    
OKAY OKAY ...  
It's ... NOT Just Rap  ... !!!    
    
But Rap CAN Set ...  
Kids Up For ... " SLAPS " ... !!!  
    
Check The Stats' ...  
I'm Talking FACTS ... !!!  
    
But Let's ...... Backtrack ...  
cos' Talking ... FACTS ...  
Must Mean I PREACH ... ?!?  
    
Can't We Put ...  
That Line To .... "Sleep" ... !?!  
    
NOT Just Yet ...  
I Haven't Reached .......  
The End of THIS HERE Poetry ... !!!!!  
    
Let Me Make ...  
This Piece Complete ....  
    
Sometimes .....  
I'm Just ... Venting STRESS ...  
    
Other Times ....  
I'm Just ... UPSET ... !!!!!  
    
Words I Write ...  
AREN'T ALL ... For You ... !!!  
    
I KNOW That ...    
I'm NOT A Fool ... !!!  
    
But When I Speak ...  
I'm Being ... TRUE ...  
    
I Don't Speak ....  
To ... "belittle you" ...  
    
When You Speak ...  
I'm Learning TOO ... !!!!!  
    
NOT From ... ALL ...    
But ... Some of You ...    
    
Things I Write ...  
I Hold ... "DEARLY" ...  
    
I'm NOT ... " Creepy " ...  
DON'T .... FEAR ME .... !!!!!  
    
Words I Write ...  
Can Have ... " DEEP Meaning ..... "    
    
Some Have Said ...  
They've ... " Taught " ...  
That's ... " Teaching " ...  
    
Some Have CLEARLY ...  
Left Folks .... REELING .... !!!!!!!  
    
But Let's Be ... CLEAR ...  
    
" I'm Not Preaching !!! "
In response to the suggestion that, what I was doing was preaching, I had to explain my position,

I'd rather see what I do, as merely sharing views of things that i've seen, as well as been through, as the poem states.

Also, this is an interesting piece, from the perspective of President Trumps', recent attack on the 4 congresswomen, for merely expressing their views about US Governance !

Just For YOU ...  
If Your Man Hurls ABUSE ...

SOAP In His ... " Food " ... !!!

But ...
May ... "CONTROL" ...  
His ... FOUL MOUTHED Lips ... !!!  
    
Let Me ...
Make This ... CLEAR TO YOU ... !!!  
    
These Are Things You ...  

... SHOULD NOT DO ... !!!!  
    
I'm Merely Suggesting ...  
Things You Could Do ... ?  
To BALANCE ... Wrong Doings ...  
    
Done To ... YOU ... !!!  
    
But If You'd Rather ...  
    
... " Play It Cool " ...  
    
You Probably Have ...  
A ... " Peaceful Life " ... !!!

Like The AD Says ...  
    
" Your Future Looks Bright ! "  
    
But DRAMAS Now ...  
Aren't SHORT But ......

Looooooooooooonnnnnnnnnngggggggg ...... !!!!!

Too Many Are SELFISH ... !!!
and ... Don't Have A Clue ... ?!?  
  
About Those ...

While Others ... " Sniff Glue " ...

Who Talk of ... " RESPECT " ...
  
These Days I Reflect ...
On This Thing Called ...
  
..... " RESPECT " .....
  
RESPECT ... Must Be Earned ... !!!
Why ... Give It For FREE ... ?!?
  
RESPECT Is NOT Something ...
For .... EVERYBODY .... !!!
  
RESPECT ... Can't Be Given ...
To People ... "BLINDLY" ... !!!
  
RESPECT Goes Together ...
With ... " HUMILITY " ... !!!
  
That Verse NEEDS ... INSPECTION ...
And Some ..... " Thought Collection " .....  
  
I'll ..... Give You A Moment ...
To Take For ... " REFLECTION " ...............................  
  
Kids Are Important ...

Cos' That's When I Felt ...

It Was The Last Time ...
For Her Physical Charm ...
To Touch Me Just Like ...

But ... One Thing I Know ...
Is ... We'll ALWAYS KNOW ... !!!
The LOVE That ... We Shared ...

What ... In This Life ... ?
Is It Right To ... " Expect " ... ?
  
Well .....  
One Thing FOR SURE ... !!!  
    
One Day ... " YOU'LL BE DEAD !!! "  
    
" Morbid " ... I KNOW ... !!!!!  
    
But We've ... ALL Got To Go ... !!!!!!  
    
This Isn't A Subject ...  
For ... PARANOID FOLK ... !!!!!  
    
" I'M NOT GONNA DIE !  
I'M NOT GONNA FRY !    
I'M BEGGING YOU GOD !  
I WANT ONE MORE TRY ! "
    
" Why should I let you ?  
Your life's been, a lie. "  
    
Did You Expect THAT ... ?  
    
NO ... !!!  

Neither Did ... " I " ... !!!  
    
Sometimes ...  
I'm Quite SHOCKED ...  
By The Words That I Write ... !!  
    
It's SHOCKING I Know ...  
My ... Poetic Flow ... !!!  
    
Cos' Many Still Think ...  
Most Blacks ... Just Sell Coc'...  
    
Or ....  
EVEN WORSE Still ...  
    
Have ....  
NO STRENGTH of ... WILL !!!  
    
Well ....  
Here's A ... NEWSFLASH ... !!!!!!!!!  
    
I've Now ... Had My Fill ...  
of These ... " Stereotypes " ...    
White Folks Have ... "Instilled" ...    
In ... Weak Peoples Minds ...  
    
Since We've Had .....  
    
" SANDS OF TIME ...................... "  
    
So Now I'm ... ATTACKING ...  
This NONSENSE ... In Rhyme ...  
    
NOT ... Every Black Man ...  
Is Living ... " Off Crime " ... !!!  
    
But .....  
How Many Whites ... ?  
Are ... " Government Slime " ... ???  
    
How Many Are ... " Guys " ... ?  
In .... " Corporate Ties " ... ?  
    
THESE Are The People ...  
Who ... Tell The World LIES ... !!!  
    
I'm ...
SICK of This BULL ...  
    
" Some white guys are nice ! " ...  
    
I'm Sure That Some Are ... !!!  
    
I Think That's Like Saying ...  
That ... ******* Have CLASS ... !?!  
    
CLASS ... Is A Farce ... !!!!!  
    
and THAT Is My View ...    
    
But ...
Don't EVER Expect ...  
ALL Black Men Are ... " Fools " ...    
    
A White Guy I Worked With ...  
Was ... Talking With Me ...  
    
I Was ... Telling Him ...  
Why I ... DON'T LIKE POLICE ... !!!!!  
    
He Quickly ... Retorted ...      

" We Need them to Live !!! "  
    
So ....  
Then It ... Began ...  
    
I said ....  
    
"Listen young man,  
they're just a street gang."  
    
That's When I Got ...    
.... " SHOCKED " .... !!!!!  
    
cos' That's When He Said ...  

" HIS DAD WAS A COP ! "  
    
I Just Said ... " Really ?!? " ...  
    
He said ...  

" He used to be, but these days    
he's working, for the. M.O.D. "  
    
I said ....  
    
" Yeah that's great,  
I Still, DON'T LIKE POLICE ! "  
    
I Then Explained ... WHY ...  
    
I've Had Police ... TRY ... !!!  
The Usual ... " Old Line " ... !!!  

" You look like a guy,  
who's just done a crime ... "
    
They've Acted Like ... Berks ...  
When I've ... Been In My Merc' ... !!!!!  
    
Quizzing Me ... In The Morning ...  
RIGHT OUTSIDE ... My Work ... ?!!!?  
    
So What Do You Think ...  
My White Colleague said ... ?!?  

" WHEN YOU LOOK LIKE    
YOU DO, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT !?! "  
    
We Were ... " On The Phone " ...  
Otherwise ... He'd Be RED ... !!!!  
    
Because of The ... GRIP ...  
I'd of Had ... ROUND HIS NECK ... !!!!!  
    
Cos' ...

What He Was Saying ...  
Is ... I Should ... EXPECT ...    
To ... NOT EVER GET ...    
A Little ... RESPECT ... !!! ? !!!  
    
He Said ...  

" He was joking    
to just, get me vex ! "  
    
Well ....

This Was His Aim ...  
But ... I Wasn't Upset ...  
cos' ... Funny Enough ...  
    
It's What I ... " Now Expect " ... !!!  
    
From ... IGNORANT Whites ...    
Who Are ... " WHITER Than WHITE " ...    
    
So ...
That's When I Said ...  

" Your father must be,  
a REALLY COOL GUY,  
to stand up and tell,  
on, Racist Police Guys !  
cos', this is the breed,  
that's kept in PIG STYS !!!"  
    
I Left Him To ... " Dwell " ...  
On The Idea of ... " Cells " ...    
Where Black Men Have DIED ... !!!  
and Police Said .... " HE FELL ?!? " ...    
    
I've Now ...    
Learnt A Lesson ... !!!  
I'll ... NEVER FORGET ... !!!!!  
    
When Speaking To People ...  
    
On THIS ... YOU CAN BET ... !!!!!  
    
Most People ... " BELIEVE " ...    
Their House Is ... PERFECT ... !!!  
    
and Don't Like To Hear ...  
A View That ... " Suggests " ...    
Some Things In Their House ...    
May Have Some ... DEFECTS ... !!!!!    
    
People of ... ALL SECTS ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!  
NEED .... REALITY CHECKS .... !!!    
    
And THIS ...
Is Now Something ...  

I've Come To ........  
    
....... " Expect " .......
A lot of things inspired this, the conversation in particular, and now, in the light of films like, " When They See Us... ", one has to wonder what, as a young black male, you can expect from all sects, in terms of treatment ?

ESPECIALLY From, The Feds' ... !?!

When Police ... Act The FOOL ... !!!  

They're USING ... " The Bomb " ...  
To ... Make You BELIEVE ...  
That ... WE ... DON'T Belong ...
  
So ...  
Let Me Explain ...  
Why This Will Bring PAIN ...  
To ... " Asians and Blacks " ...  
  
Again and AGAIN ... !!!!  
  
It Was ... Saturday ...  
A Nice ... SUNNY Day ... !!!  
  
I'm ... Driving My Car ...  
But Stopped For ...  " Rizzla' " ...  
  
As I Get Out ...  
I See The POLICE ...  
  
I ... LOOK AT THEM ...  
Cos' They're ... WATCHING ME ... !!!  
  
Two ... UNIFORMED  Women ...  
With A PIG STENCH ... !!!!!  
  
EXACTLY The Type ...  
That ... Make Some Fists CLENCH ... !!!!!  
  
But ....  
Let Me Move On  ....  
  
I ... Walk Out The Shop ...  
Get Back In My Car ...  
  
But .....
My Car Has Been .... MARKED .... !!!!!  
  
My Friend ...
Who Was With Me  

Said  ...  
  
"V you've been clocked ...  
The guy on the corner  
said, Watch For Those Cops !"  
  
He Saw Them ... " Converse " ...  
and YES ... Something WORSE ... !!!
  
They've ...
Turned The Car ROUND ...  
They'll Be Back Round The Block ... !!!  
  
You'll ...
NEVER Guess What ... !?!  
  
But ...
When I Pulled Off ...  
The Cops Were ... " IN TOW " ...  
  
My ...
Friend And I Sat There ...  
And Said ... " HERE WE GO !!! " ...  
  
I Turned Down MY ROAD ... !!!  
Which ... Knocked Them ...  
.............................................                    ­                


                                      OFF Track ... ?!?  
  
I ...
Pulled The Car Over ...  
To See Them ...
... TURN BACK ... !!!
  
And That's When I Knew ...  
That These ... " Dumb Girls in Blue " ...  
  
Were ......
Coming To QUIZ Me ...  

And ...    
Dish Out ABUSE ... !!!  
  
I Drove To ... MY HOUSE ... !!!  
and Parked RIGHT OUTSIDE ... !!!  
  
Then Me and My Man ...  
Jumped Out Of My Ride ...  
  
Then Slowly .................................................................­.. They Came ......  
To Play The ... " Old Game " ... !?!  
  
"Your car is a rental ?"  
  
"In Fact, it's a lease !"  
  
This is where I ...
Started Getting AGGRIEVED ... !!!!!  
  
"I must be too black  
to drive a Mercedes !"  
  
"It's a random check sir,  
calm down will you please !"  
  
"Not when you've stopped me  
down My ******* Street !  
I've lived here for years.
You've got a **** cheek !  
We had been advised,  
when we parked down the street,  
that, you had decided  
to try it with me,  
well now that you have,  
of course i'm angry !"  
  
It Simply ... Has Taken ...  
ONE ... Muslim Jamaican ...  
To Get The ... " Old Bill " ...  
To Put Blacks THROUGH THE MILL ... !?!  
  
If This Was A Movie ... ???  
Try THIS For A Title ...  
  
" VIRGE KILLED The Old Bill " ...  
  
Now ... Killing AIN'T Right ... !!!  
But ... Why Should I Chill ...
When They Treat Us Like THIS ... !?!    
  
Man ...
I've Had MY FILL ... !!!!!  
  
Two Minutes of Silence ...  
Has NOT Given Guidance ...  
To People Who Say ....  
  
" Let's STOP All This Violence !!! "  
  
There's Science BEHIND ...  
These Acts of ... DEFIANCE ...    
  
Behind ....  
" Certain Doors " ...  
  
They Plan ...  
PURE COMPLIANCE  ... !!!  
  
CONTROL of ... "The Ethnics" ... !!!!!  
Their Plans ARE UPSETTING ... !!!!!  
  
cos' Stories They're Telling ...  
Are TRULY ... PATHETIC ... !!!  
  
But Let Me Get Back ...  
To These Two ... Female FOOLS ... !!!  
  
Who Think They're  ALL THAT ... !!!  
Cos' They're Now ... " Girls in Blue " ...  
  
I Have A ... " Disabled Bay "  
Outside of ... My House ...  
  
So ... Hear What They Did ...  
To Prove They Had ... CLOUT ... !!!  
  
"You're parked in a bay,  
with no badge on display !"
  
"My mum was disabled !  
She's Dead Now Okay !"  
  
She Issued ... " A Ticket " ...  
As We .................................................. Walked Away ......................  
  
I Said ...  
  
"Issue The Council !l  
It's them who should pay !  
They know my mum's dead,  
but they've still left the bay !"  
  
She Said ....  
Nothing Further ...  
  
What More Could She Say ?  
  
My Friend Said To Me ...  
  
"Pig two asked his name !"  
  
I Said ....  
  
"She's a Pig !  
A Pig Has NO SHAME !"  
  
The Point of This Prose ...  
Is Simply ... To SHOW ...  
  
" The Plan " ...  
Is In Motion ... !!!  
  
They've Put Out ... " The Notion " ...  
That Blacks Make ... BOMB POTIONS ... !!!!!  
  
We're ...

"under it" ... now ... !!!  
  
From ...
Driving On Streets ...  
To ... London's Underground ...  
  
WE ARE Now ...  
  
... " The Ones " ...  
  
They're ...
Going To HOUND ... !!!  
  
EVEN If We ...  
ARE Making Them ... POUNDS  ... ?!!!?  
  
I'm SICK of ................................... THE STENCH ............. !!!!!!!  
  
I Sense .... " Something SMELLY " ....  
It's CLEARLY ... The Pigs ...  
and ... What's On YOUR TELLY ... !!!!!!!
  
This Story Just PROVES ....  
  
That  .......  
  
" They're At It Already ! " .....
I still have the ticket the policewoman wrote, to this day, and never received any notice to pay, nuff said.

However, different times as they were back in 2K5, as the times move on, the plan of division of people, is moving along, so it feels like the same ish', just a different pong, sadly ....

Can't we all just ... Get Along ... ???
(I say sarcastically !!!)

Pretty Much ALL THE TIME .... !!!

ABUSED By A ... " System " ...

A System ... " Designed " ...
To KEEP Men Like Me ...
From Being ... " Refined " ... !!!

Those Who Have ... Visions ...

and ... STAND STRONG ALONE ... !!!
Instead of Just Being A ...

Star Wars Type ... " CLONE " ... !!!!!

See ...
Star Wars ... Does Show ...
The Way That Things Go ...

Armies Are ... BUILT ...
So EVIL Can ... grOW ... !!!

The Young ...

Are Then ... TWISTED ... !!!
Innocence ... OVERTHROWN ... !!!!

and Then They Are ... "Moulded" ...
To ****** Their Own ... !!!?!!!

I Wish I Could Say ....

It's Simply A ... " Film " ... !!!

But Sadly It's ... Life ...

These Views Are INSTILLED ...
In Men Like ... MY BOSS ... !!!

These Men Are .......................................... So ...... Lost ....... ?!?
These Days We're ... "SURROUNDED" ...
By ... HUMAN Robots ... !!?!!

Kind of Like ... VADER ... !!!

Or ...

Lost Ark Type ... RAIDERS ... !!!

I've Heard This BEFORE ...

"You're not a team player !"

HELL NO If The ... " Team " ...
IS ALL ABOUT ..... " MEANS " ..... !!!

I'd Rather ... Lose Money ...
Than ... Live Life For PAPER ... !!!
and End Up Like ... " VADER " ...
Holding .... A RED SABRE ......... !!!!!

I'm Trying To Say ...
That My Days Are Now .... LONG .................................................................­.........

Because of ... Treatment I Get ....
Which Is ... WRONG ... !!!!!

I'd QUIT and Just DASH .... !!!
If I Had ENOUGH CASH ... !!!

Enough To Just ... " Live On " ...
WITHOUT Living .......... FLASH ....... !!!

But These Days ...
It's TRUE ... !!!!

Just Like ... " Some of You " ...
I'm Biding .............. My Time .................................................................­
Before ... Making A Move ...

I Want To Wake Up ...
With A ... SMILE On My Face ...
and NOT Feel THE ANGER ...
I'm Feeling .... These Days ....

DON'T Get it MESSED UP !!!

It's ... " Just My Workplace" ...
That's Making Me ... MAD ...
and Write Things In This Way ... !!!

These Words Are THE TRUTH ...
My Colleagues ... Are RUDE ...
and DON'T Have ... " A Clue " ...
That ... How They BEHAVE ...
Could Leave Them ...

... BLACK and BLUE ... !!!!!

and Then ...
You'd ALL See Me ...
On Your ... Evening News ...

So Ponder ON ... This ...

Does This Happen To YOU ... ?!?

If Your Answer Is ... YES ... ?

You're Being ...........................

.......... ABUSED ...........
This is about my last, Full Time 9-5 ... !!!

.... and thankfully,
I am now in that place I spoke about in the poem !
It took a while, but I got there in the end .....
