I'm Hearing That ...
Some People Think ...  

New Poetry's ... TOO CRUDE ... !!!

Now I'm NOT Starting ...  
A Poetry ... FEUD ...  
  
But ...  
  
"Come come old boy,  
that views OLD NEWS !"
  
Rappers NOW ...  
Write ... Poetry TOO ... !!!  
  
Some Rap Is Bought ...  
By ... MILLIONS of Youths ... !!!  
  
Not Just ... " The Young " ...  
But ... Old Folks TOO ... !!!  
  
So ... MILLIONS Buy ...  
Wordplay That's ... CRUDE ... !!!  
  
Most People In The World ...  
Have Forgotten ... " Ted Hughes " ... !!!  
  
But Recite Words Written ...  
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 " ...  
  
From Dealings Made ...  
AWAY From .................................................................­............. Public View .......  
  
To Racists ... Doing ...  
... What They Do ... !!!
  
So ....  LISTEN Close ...  
To ... This Here Prose ...  
Cos' ... Crudeness In YOU ...  
May Get ... EXPOSED ... !!!  
  
Like Powder ... Under ...  
A Coc'heads' .... NOSE ... !!!  
  
I'm A ... LOUDSPEAKER ...  
WITHOUT The ... " Bose " ... !!!  
  
These ... Open Mic' Gigs ...  
Seem To ... INDULGE ...  
Poets Whose Minds ...  
AREN'T Open But CLOSED ... ?!?
  
But Now You're OPEN ...  
To ... Lyrical BLOWS ...  
  
If This Is ... TOO CRUDE ...  
Walk Out The Front Door ...  
  
OPEN It UP ...  
You're ... FREE TO GO ..........................................  
  
But REMEMBER THIS NIGHTS' An ...
... " OPEN Mic Show " ... !!!!!  
  
Oh It's ...  
  
" Classic Poetry " ...
That You ... CHOOSE ... ?!?  
  
Well ...  
Have Your OWN NIGHT ...  
You ... PROBABLY Do ... !!!  
  
And EXPRESS Your Views ...  
To Those Who STILL Follow ...  
The ... " Laureate School " ... !!!  
  
DON'T ... Use The Stage ...  
To ... HURL ABUSE ... !!!  
  
At Poets From...  
The ... REALITY School ... !!!  
  
I Choose ... NOT To Lose ...  
My Cool For ... FOOLS ... !!!  
Who Choose To Use ...  
The Mic' To Be ... RUDE ...  
  
ANTIQUATED Views ...  
Have Their ... " Place " ...  
  
But To DEVALUE The New ...  
is a ... **** DISGRACE ... !!!  
  
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 " ......  
Before It's ... TOO LATE ... !!!!  
  
Who Are YOU To Tell People ...  
What To Say ... ?!!!?  
  
Isn't That What Was Done ...  
In THOSE ... SLAVERY Days ... ?!?  
  
Interesting Question ...  
What's Your  View ... ???  
  
Let Me Guess ...  
THAT Question's ... LEWD ... !!!  
  
Let Me Ask A Couple More ...  
  
How Do You DEFINE ... Crude ... ???  
  
What's In A Definition ... ?  
CREATING ... *** - is - ion ...  
  
Well ...  
Prisms To ... " Isms' " ...  
What Is YOUR Position ... ?
  
When ... Visions' Definition ...  
DEFINES The Way You're Living ...  
  
But ...  
Takes AWAY ............ The GLISTEN ....  
With ... " Fictional Inscriptions " ...  
  
So ... What's The ...  
RIGHT Prescription ... !?!  
  
Is it In ... The ETHER ... ?

Water Runs ...

Can We NOT Change ...  
WITHOUT ... RECKLESS ABANDON ... ?!?
  
We Have ... " Few Limits " ...  
But ... "SO MANY Limits" ...  
  
Limits ... To Me ...  
Go With POLITICS ... !!!  
As The Force Goes with ...  
  
... " Jedi Mind Tricks " ... !!!!  
  
Or ... Needles DO ...  
With A ... " Heroine Fix " ... !!!  
  
That's NO JOKE ... !!!  
  
I Ain't Taking ...  
... " The **** " ...  
  
JUDGES of ... " My Words " ...  
Just Make Me ... SICK ... !!!  
  
Time KEEPS Ticking ...  
Can You Hear The ... " Tick " ... ?  
  
My Poetic Style ...  
Is An OLD ... NEW Lick ... !!!!!  
While Some Still Walk ...  
In Parks ... " JURASSIC " ...  
  
So ... Who Can DEFINE ...  
A ... Poetry CLASSIC ... !?!  
  
The World ...  
DOES NOT ... Revolve ...  
Around ... SINGULAR Views ... !!!!  
  
Walk AWAY If You ... " Choose " ... !!!  
  
But ...  
PLEASE DON'T Use The Microphone ...  
Just To .... HURL ABUSE .... !!!!!  
  
Cos' When YOU SHOW ...  
Such ... ATTITUDES ...  
  
YOUR ATTITUDE ...  
........... IS ........

...... " CRUDE " .......
Written once i'd performed for a while, only to hear that, some of the old guard were complaining about the content, and styles of fresh young wordsmiths .... always an interesting subject to debate .....
