Do You Ever Feel ...
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' ..
NOT ... " The Game " ... !!!
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 ...
I'm In A ... " Zone " ...
Where People RUN FROM .......................................
Til' I've BLOWN ...
A Layer Made of ... Virge OZONE ... !!!!
  
DON'T .... Pity Me ...
Cos' I'm Quite LIKING ...
.... Who I BE .... !!!
  
Medusa AIN'T ME ... !!!
I'm Just ... " BIG V " ... !!!
  
But Take CARE ...
How You Look At Me ... !!!
  
Cos' You Might Just ...
Get Turned To ... STONE ... ?!!!?
  
I Guess That's Why ...
I Sometimes Feel ...
  
As If For REAL ...
  
I'm Happy To Be ...  
  
ALL .... " Alone " ....
Observances of the scene when I used to perform in London.
Indeed a strange breed, run the London, Spoken Word Scene !!!
