It’s True Like Ra’ Said...
You NEED To... " KNOW THE LEDGE "... !!!

Because A Lot of Heads....
Push To The EDGE...
To Be... The BEST... !!!

It Has Caused Some STRESS...
That Has Led To Their Death... !!!
Because They Took THAT Step...
That... Brought Their END... !!!

Because They Stepped...
OVER... The Edge... !!!

From Famous Names...
Whose Claim To Fame...
Left Them So DRAINED...

That It Became A PAIN...
For Them To STAY SANE... !!!

So... Took *******...
Until It Stopped Their Brain...
From Thinking STRAIGHT...
So Suicide Reigned Like...

... WILD Hurricanes... !!!

You See Artistic Heads...
... PURSUE GREATNESS...

But Some FORGET That There Is An EDGE...
That They SHOULDN'T Overstep... !!!

The Edge of... INSANITY... !!!
Just To PLEASE... Humanity...

A Pursuit That SADLY...
Leads To...... TRAGEDY... !!!

When They Don’t Recognise...
That You......

CAN’T Please EVERYBODY...
... ALL of The Time... !!!!

It’s Your State of Mind...
THAT An Edge Can BIND... !!!

As I Said Before...
To... SUICIDE... !!!!!

The Famous Life...
Is... EDGY And TRIFE'... !!!

Just Like... Mobb Said...

The Five Star Life Has An EDGY Side...
That Most CAN'T Survive...

Unless They LIE...
And CONTRIVE Smiles...

Even When DEEP INSIDE...
They Don’t Feel Alright... !!!

There’s An Edge That Provides...
Some Women And Guys...
With A Wish To... "Hide"...
Who They REALLY ARE...
So... Mark Their Own Cards...

Like Palpatine Did Darth... !!!

Edges... So DARK...
That They Break WEAK Hearts...
When They Are Asked...
To Take... DARK Paths... !!!!

THEY... Come And Go...

Some Who Tell JOKES...
And Host Live Shows..
.
To...
Those Whose Nose...
Snorts Lines of Coc’...

Like That Scarface Bloke... !!!

And Most Now Know...
How His Story Then Goes... !!!

Sportsman TOO...
More Than The ODD FEW... !!!

Get An Edge That DEFENDS...
A Whole Heap of NONSENSE...
That Make Some... BUTTHEADS... !!!

NO BEAVIS... Just Attempts...
To Play To The Edge of Being The Best... !!!!
But This In The End Can Cause PROBLEMS... !!!

When It Comes To The Friends...
Who Then See You Depressed...
When You're... On YOUR OWN...
WITHOUT Fame In Tow... !!!!!

Iron Mike KNOWS...
of The Highs And Lows...
of Letting... THAT EDGE...
Lead You To... LOW BLOWS... !!!

You See Some Make The MISTAKE...
of Thinking That Winning...

Has Such... HIGH STAKES... !!!

That They’ll...

Do... WHATEVER It Takes... !!!!!!
To Be The Name Who Takes Centre Stage...

Well To Me...
That’s... NOT The Way...
It’s A Game of... Give And Take...

YES An EDGE Can RAISE Your Game...
But Can Also... DAMAGE Your Brain... !!!

From Those Who Entertain...
To Sportsman Who Get Paid...
A MILLION Dollar Wage... !!!

The Game Remains...
... THE SAME... !!!

To Be The VERY BEST... !!!

It Can Be...
The TOUGHEST Test...

That Can Bring...
MUCH MORE Than Stress... !!!

If You... DON'T Know...
When To SLOW Your Roll... !!!

And NOT Go OVER...

........ “ The EDGE “....... !!!!!
Inspired in no small part, from watching the documentaries on Robin Williams, and the Wu Tang Clan's, " Of Mics And Men ", as well as the life stories of countless famous people, whose edge, in the end, led to their deaths, literally, and otherwise
