It REALLY Is...
An AMAZING Thing... !!!

To See How QUICK...
Some People SWITCH...
When PRESSURE Liks’... !!!

And NOT The Type of Pressure...
That Brings... BAD Weather... !!!

I Mean The Type...
That Affects Mankind... !!!
And Women TOO...
When They Switch Their Moods... !!!

In Times Like THESE...
Where A... VIRAL DISEASE...
Has... LOCKED DOWN Streets... !?!

It’s AMAZING To See...
How The LOSS of MONEY...

Has AFFECTED Heads...
Who CLAIM To Care Less...
About MONEY CHESTS And Bank Interest...

Because They SWITCH...
Like... IGNORANT Kids... !!!

When It Comes To CASH...
That They CAN’T Grab...
To Fulfil Their Plans...
To Do This And That...

It’s... Really SAD...
To See People Get MAD...
And... Start To Act...
Like An IGNORANT *****...
Who Is PRONE To SNITCH... !!!

Sometimes I DO WISH...
I Could Turn OFF The Switch...
That Inspires Scripts of Lyrics Like THIS... !!!

But The PROBLEM Is...
That It’s The Type of Gift...
That’s... HARD To Resist... !!!!!

When I Start To Think...
And Suddenly LINK...
My Thoughts With Ink...
Or Of Course... Typing...

Because of The SWITCH...
To TECHNOLOGICAL Things...
That Now EXIST Like This Virus Is... !!!

You See This Poetic Piece...
Has Been Inspired...
By The Things I’ve Seen...
Since This NEW DISEASE...

Has Started Putting OUT Fires...
of... Lives And Desires...

And BROKEN Dreams...
As Well As LIMITED Means...
of People Who NEED...
To Really Stay HEALTHY... !!!

Instead of Having To FEAR...
of Now Being TOO NEAR...

To... People Who...
Have Got THIS FLU... !!!

A SWITCH That In TRUTH...
Is Just NOT COOL... !!!
Because It’s Now REMOVED...

How We... TREAT...
The People We’d GREET...

BEFORE This Disease...
SWITCHED Societies...

To Be... DISTANCED Beings...
Whose Switch Is Leaning...
To... SWIFTLY DEMEANING...

... Historical Teachings...

Like Communicating...
WITHOUT All This... SPACING...
That’s Clearly FRUSTRATING...
A... LOT ot of Locations... !!!

Where They’ve HAD TO SWITCH...
Because They Were TOO QUICK...
To... RE-OPEN Things...

So Their Switch Now STINGS... !!!
And May Now Be Bringing...
A SWITCH In... THINKING...
As SECOND Waves...
Start To RAISE The STAKES...
ALL OVER The Place... !!!

Which Would Be A SHAME... !!!

Even Those Who CREATE...
Are SWITCHING In Ways...
That AREN’T So Great... !!!

Because They’re Trying To Play...
The Game In... NEW WAYS...

When Basically Things...
Will Remain The SAME... !!!

SWITCHING Up Names...
And SWITCHING Up Tracks...

Instead of Sticking To FACTS...
And NOT Trying To Act...
As If They’ve SWITCHED...
How It Is That They THINK... ?!?

I’m NOT Switching My Vibe...
From... REALITY Rhymes... !!!

Because... If The Cap FITS...
You KNOW You NEED To WEAR It... !!!

Because You CAN’T SWITCH Hit...
Like... BASEBALL Swings... !!!

Or Like Black Lives...
That Only Matter When We DIE... ?!?

By The Hands of A Guy...
Whose Skin Tone Is WHITE...
And Has POLICEMEN Ties... ?!?

That’s A SWITCH That MY MIND...
REALLY DOES NOT LIKE... !!!

What About Black Rhymes... ???
That DON’T Energise Vibes of Packing NINES...
And Running IGNORANT Lines About Gang Fights...
That SWITCH Like Tribes of The AFRICAN Type... !!!!!!!

That... DESTROY Lives...
And The Chance To UNITE...

I Mean... WHY OH WHY... ?!?

Do We SWITCH And Then DENY...
The TRUTH To Feed... LIES... !?!

In... Chatter That Matters...
About As Much As These SLAPPERS....
Or These... Young Gun Clappers... !!!!!!

Who SHOULD...
Choose To SWITCH Targets...
And STOP Being So HEARTLESS... !!!

And MAYBE Then Black Lives...
And The Minds of Whites...
Might SWITCH From Fights...
of The... RACIST Type... !!!

And Then Guys Like I...
WOULDN'T Have To Write...

About HYPOCRISY...
Within Our Human Breed...

Because We’d Learn To FORGIVE...
And NOT Have To Live...
Like Some Kind of SNITCH...

Who Is FAR TOO QUICK...
When PROBLEMS Persist...

To Start To TWITCH...

And Then SUDDENLY.....

........ “ SWITCH “.......
Well, one things fa' sure now, with all that this year of 2020 has brought, one of the biggest changes it's brought, has been the switching of peoples' priorities, and sadly, in many case, their attitudes towards each other !
