Now I ...
Dunno What You’ve Heard ... ?!?

But ...
You Haven’t Heard Enough ..
From The Brotha’ ... Big Virge ... !!!

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

A Man Who’s ROUGH ...
With This ... Poetic Stuff ... !!!!

That’s Groovy ... Moody ...
But Still Finds BEAUTY ...
In This World At Sea ...
Through My ... Poetry ...

Flowing CLEAN ...
And Comfy Like A Suite ...
of The ... FINEST Leather Seats ... !!!

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 “ ... !!!
This one covers a lot, from how I feel about my art, to the world of the likes of Liam Neeson, Donald Trump, and even, Stormy Daniels !!!

Fake or True ... ???  
Which One Are You ... ?

Are You Simply A FAKE ... ?  
Who's Just On The Make ... ?  

Or ...
Are You ... EVEN WORSE ... ?  
  
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"  
These People Are ... Fake ... !!!  
  
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 ...  
To ... Look INTO YOU ...  
  
So .....
What Will You FIND ... ???  
  
When You ...
Look INTO ... YOU .. !?!  
  
Are You ..........

" FAKE or ...........  
Are You TRUE ... ??? "
Never an easy question, when it comes to REALLY being, true to yourself !
Big Virge Nov 2
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 !!!

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 ...

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 ... !!!

How Do You DEFINE ... Crude ... ???  
  
What's In A Definition ... ?  
CREATING ... *** - is - ion ...  
  
Well ...  
Prisms To ... " Isms' " ...  
What Is YOUR Position ... ?

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 ...

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 " ...

A ... Poetry CLASSIC ... !?!  
  
The World ...

Just To .... HURL ABUSE .... !!!!!  
  
Cos' When YOU SHOW ...  
Such ... ATTITUDES ...  
  
YOUR ATTITUDE ...

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 .....

"Peace" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 18/3/2005
Big Virge Jun 2018
Ya Know …..

They say … when you age …
That … you should … Stay …
….. " ACTIVE " …… !!!!! ……

Now … " Physically " …
That makes … sense to me …

But ….

NOT IF … " Mentally " …
Your Mind State's … "Captive" … !!!!!
"Reactive" … and … " Lacking " …
In Thoughts … " Attracting " …

A … " Balanced " … Life …
in … " Body and Mind " …

So …..
I KEEP … Mine …

" As in " … My Brain … !!!

" Active " … and inclined …
to ….. " elevATE " ….. !!!!!!!
and therefore … " Maintain " …
A … STRONG … Mind State … !!!!!

A Thing I … " Exhibit " …
In My … Wordplay … !!! …
Whenever … I Visit …
an … A4 Page … !!!!! …
and let … My Lyrics …
become an … " Array " …
of … Rhymes Exquisite … !!!!!
when they are … " Displayed " …

My Words become … " Active " …
whenever they're … " Acted " ...

Or Simply …. Heard ….
Via …. " Spoken Word " ….
From Me … " Big Virge " …

See …..
" Activation " … of …
… " Thought " … !!! …  
I Now …. " Explore " ….

As a way to …
KEEP …. " Active " ….
and NOT GET … " Bored " … !!!!!

As I said … Before …
I … DO NOT … Ignore … !!!
A NEED … to do … MORE …
Than Exercise … On Floors … !!!

I do that … TOO … !!!!!
But Don't … EVER ABUSE … !!!

" The Tool " …
That when … USED … !!!!!

" Activates " … Tissues …
NOT USED … by … " Fools " … ?!?

" Who " ….
DISMISS … thought … !!!
to IMPRESS … These ****** … !?!

" FLEXING " … Muscle … !!!
and … STRONG … Skin Tones …

So that they can … " Couple " …
" Activating " … Hormones … !!!!!

I'd rather be … "humble" …
Than … Activate … TUSSLES … !!!
That … DON'T BREED … Chuckles … !!!
when they … OPEN … " Dark Tunnels " …
where fellas use …. " KNUCKLES " ….

" Activating " …. TROUBLE …. !!!
because they got … " Rumbled " … !!!
when having … MORE THEN … " Cuddles " … !!!
with girls whose … " Main Trait " …
is to …. " ACTIVATE " ….
more than … Their … PROSTATE … !!!!!

See …. !!!
I … " Activate " … Levels …
"Deep Inside" … My Mental …

That Takes …..
Lead from … " The Pencils " … !!!
of … " ***** Lil' Devils " … !!!!!!!!!!!!

Therefore …
I Stay …. STRONG …. !!!!!
and … AVOID … " Problems " … !!!!!
That come from … " Loose Thongs " … !!!
and …. " Violent Wrongs " …. !!! ….

I'd Rather … Write Words … !!!
and …. " Poetic Verse " ….
That … Act like … " Prophylactics " ...
and give disease … " Collapses " … !!!!!

because … My Wordplay …
….. " Snatches " …… !!!
  
"Whips" … and gives out …
….. " Hangings " ….. !!!!!! …..

To Cats … " thinking " …
They … MASSIVE … ?!?
When … what they are is …
……. " TRAGIC " …… !!!!

TRAGIC ….. !!!
Little … "captives" …

Using … " Foolish " …
….. " Tactics " …..
That … put them on …
… " My Blacklist " … !!!!!!

of … Those Worthy …  of …
……. LASHES ….... !!!!!!!!!!

See Me ….
I Prey … like … MANTIS … !!!!!
or ... like man from … " Atlantis " … !!!!!!

I Pray …  
Upon … an … AXIS … !!!!!

" Symmetrical " …
and … " Balanced " … !!!!!!

Unable … to be ….
" Challenged " …. !!!!!!

by IGNORANCE …
That's … "Captive" … !!!
In minds now … LOST … !!!
and ……. SAVAGE ……. !!!!!!

Long After … I'm …
… " NONACTIVE " …

My words will …
Still Be … " ACTIVE " … !!!!!!

That's why I … Write …
and post … Online … !!!
So that … when I …
have … " Physically Died " …

These words I … Find …
Inside …. My Mind ….
WILL … " Stay Alive " … !!!

" IMMORTALIZED " …  !!!!!!
  
BEYOND …. My Life ….

That's where … My Pride …
"TRULY" …. Resides ….

In a place where …
… " Thoughts " …
CREATE … wordplay …
Beyond … The Wars …
We see … " Today " … !!!!!!

I Hope … One Day …
People …. Will Say …. ?!?

"That Big Virge Man,
played an active hand,
in the betterment of,
our race of, humans,
and left us seeds,
to activate dreams,
of finding peace,
and living for more
than, fights on streets,
and, vanity ! That Man,
for sure, wrote poetry,
that's active now,
He's no longer around !!!"

But …..
While i'm here ...
My Mind … " Adheres " …
to … " Activating Verse " … !!!
That … CLEARLY … " Hurts " … !!!

" Chickens and Jerks " … !!!!!!

whose form of … " Work " … ?!?

" Activates " … NONSENSE … !!!!!
Causing ….. PROBLEMS ….. !!!!!!!!!

I have …
An … " Active Body " …
and an … " Active Mind " … !!!

So ….
My work's …
Far From ……….  " Shoddy " ………. !!!!!!
because … It Feeds … " The Blind " …

with the kind of … "Insights" …
THAT DON'T …. Invite …. !!!!!!!!!!

IGNORANCE and PRIDE …
to be …. " Aligned " ….
with a …. " Positive Life " …

The words … I Rhyme …
"Activate" … like … STARS ...
Shine in …. " The Night " …. !!!!!
because … from … " The Dark " …
There … MUST COME … " Light " … !!!!!

So ….
As I approach ….
These … Last few … lines …

No Time to … " Reproach " … !!!
or …… " Criticize " ……. !!! …….

because … These Words
AREN'T … " Faddish " … !!!

and won't take …. ALL ….
Your ….. " Bandwidth " ….. !!!!!

I am a … " Wordsmith " …
Whose Pen … writes …
……. " Scripts " ……….
of … TRUE LYRICS … !!!!!
... " PROACTIVE " … !!!!!

These words are …
NOT … just … " Rantings " … !!!

They're … DRIVEN … and …
…….. EXPANSIVE …….. !!!!!!!!

and … PROVE … that …
Like My … " Writtens' "

When ……  
" Big Virge " … was here …

… " Living " …

My Brain, Body & Spirit

were … " Attached " …
to being …

….. " Active " …..
Not a bad idea to stay active, hence the poem ......
Big Virge Feb 2018
FORGET ... " Thong Songs " ... !!!!!

You simply ... CAN'T ...
Be ... " Wrong and Strong " ... !!!!!!!!!!

MOST of ... Our Leaders ...
Have got a ... FOUL PONG ... !!!!!
and think they can ...
Be ... " Wrong and Strong " ... ?!?

MP's Who ....
Are NOT ... Legit ...
NEVER ... Quit ...
Until ......... "Lost Scripts" .......
Become ... NEWS CLIPS ... !?!

Their STORIES ... are ...
Like ... " Tales From The Crypt " ...

Try watching ... That Show ...
and you'll get ... My Drift ... !!!

Tales of .... WRONG ....
and ... WICKEDNESS ... !!!!!

ALWAYS .... come first ....
Then ... " JUSTICE " ... Hits ... ?!?

But in ... REAL LIFE ...
You tend to ... Find ...

Justice comes ....
LONG AFTER ...... Crimes ......

" simple " ... minds ...
are usually ... "blind" ...
and Fail to see ...
The ... BLATANT SIGNS ... ?!?

Or ...
More Likely ...
Turn A .... "Blind Eye" ....
and FOCUS ON ...
The ... Innocent Guy ... !?!

While ... GUILTY MEN ...
Always ... " Imply ...........

That .....

"They were scared !
That's why they lied !"

But If .... You LIED ....
YOU SET ... Your Mind ...
to WRONG .... NOT Right .... !!!

You CAN'T BE ... WRONG ...
and STILL BE ... strong ... !!!!!!!!

Sounds like a title ...
to a ... Marley Song ... ?!?

Now There's ... A Man ...
Who ... Made A STAND ...
with ... TRUTHFUL Words ...
That Fed ... "The Herds" ...

Those with ... " Visions " ...

Somewhat .... bLURred ... !!!!!

WARS are where ...
This NONSENSE ... Starts ... !!!

That's why they've sent ...
Soldiers .... to Iraq .... !!! ....

They're ...
Sent for ... THIS ...

And ....
Sent For ... THAT ...

But Who ...
In TRUTH ... ?!?
Knows ... ALL THE ... " Facts " ... ???

Well THIS ... For Sure ...
Won't Help ... "the poor" ... !!!

Suffering Here ...
On ... English Shores ...

So what's the ... CURE ... ???
WITHOUT ... Midge Ure ... ?!?

How about ... THIS ... ?

DON'T ... Stand STRONG ...
When You Are ... WRONG ... !!!

FIX ... the things ...
IN YOUR ... Backyard ... !!!!!

Instead of ... " Sending " ...
Men with ... ARMS ...
to .... Foreign Lands ...
To Deal ... DUD CARDS ... !!!!!

Patrolling Streets ... Like ...

" Great White Sharks " ... !?!?!

WHO The HELL ...
Do They ... Think ... They are ... ?!?

To Be ... SO WRONG ... !!!!!!!
and STILL ... Stand Strong ... ?!?

You're just a ... " Man " ...
You're NOT ... King Kong ... !!!

Politicians ...
NEED TO ... LISTEN ... !!!

Instead of building ...
" weak " ... Partitions ... !!!

It's TIME ... They Faced ...
An ... INQUISITION ... !!!!

That's MY ... Position.

But .....
What is ... " Yours " ... ?

How'd you like ...
to be ........................................................ ignored ................... ???

Or be in ... " Stockwell " ... ?
PINNED TO ... The Floor ... !!!

This CONFIRMS ...
Their ... TERROR Laws ...
Are CLEARLY ... Flawed ... !!!

If ... " SHOOT TO **** " ...
is ... CLEARLY ... Right ... ?

Where were the ... " Police " ... ?
When THAT ... Bus Ride ...
Left People ... FRIED ... !?!?!

Don't These ... Things ...
Run Through ... " Your Mind " ... ???
Or would you ... Rather ... ?
Remain ... "blind" ... ?

WHY ... Do That ... ?!?
WHY ... "close" ... Your Eyes ... ???

When we're in times ...
of ... riSING ... CRIMES ... !!!

SO MANY ... Lies ...
From ... POLITICAL Guys ...
Who CLAIM To Be ...

" Politically " ... WISE ...

but then ... Decide ...
To Make ... " Price Hikes " ...
As if it's ... done ...
By The ... " Roll of a Dice " ... !!!!!

These guys ... CLEARLY ...
Aren't so ... " Nice " ... !!! ...

They KEEP ON TAKING ...
A BIGGER ... Slice ... !!!

Soon there won't ...
Be ... ANY PIE ... !!!
For ... ANYONE ...
Like You ... and I ...

Unless You Are ...
A ... " Corporate Guy " ...

But Cash ... They Make ...
Has got a .... FOUL PONG .... !!!!!

Because it's come ....
Out Their ... COLON ... !!!!!

Which brings me ... BACK ...
to the ... Point of This ...

You Really CAN'T ...

Be ......

" Wrong and Strong " ......
News stories these days in so many ways, reflect these words ...
Big Virge Jul 2017
Ya Know .....

It Truly is ... INCREDIBLE ... !!!

The Effect of seeing a ... " FlexibLe " ...
WOMAN ... who is ... " ****** " ... !!!!!!!!!

By This ... I mean ...
She's ... Credible ...
cos' her mind's ... BEYOND .........................................................

A ... Vegetable ...
with A ***' ... that's Far From ................................... Spherical ........ !!!

STRONG and ... FIRM ... !!!
cos' she makes it ... Work ...
in ways ... " Most girls " ...
Now Choose ... to ... shirk .........................................

Especially in ...
Those ... " Maturing " ... years ...

Where ... Staying Thin ...
Demands ... Shifting ... gears ...
and ... Exercising ... !!!!! ...

I met a girl ... Today ...
who made me ... Feel This Way ... !!!

We've Met .... Before ...
but it's ...... been a .......................................... while .................

You ... Know The Score ....
Kinda' like ... Her Style ... !?!

Got her ... " Digits " ...
WITHOUT ... Blinking ... !!!

Could this be where ... ?
Incredible ... Dares ...
to start to ... Share ...
What it is ... to ... Find ...
someone who ... Binds ...
with you ... for ... LIFE ... !!?!!

An INCREDIBLE ... Thing ... !!!
Like ... " Chance Meetings " ... ???

That ... make you think ....

" How Crazy is this ?!? "

Time will ... TELL .....................................

But it's ... " Tenable " ... ?!?
cos' our timing seemed ...

.... IMPECCABLE .... !!!!!!!!

But .... Moving on ......
WITHOUT ... Love Songs ... !!!

It's INCREDIBLE ... How ...
These words ... Expound ... !?!

Because of ... " Something ' ...
that could be ... Nothing ...

Yeah .....
The Mind's ... INCREDIBLE ... !!!
when thoughts become ... PLENTIFUL ...
and you "EMBRACE" ... Your ... Mental ...
in ways ... NOT ... Detrimental ... !!! ...

It's ... " Almost like " ...
A ... " Stencil " ...

Enabling us to ...
.... " Pencil " ....

Our Next Move and ...
... " Assemble " ...

A way to ...
Groove and REVEL ... !!!
As if you'd won ...
A ... Medal ... !!! ...

This verse is ... Existential ...
or just ... " Experimental " ... ???

Like ....
" New Techniques of " ... Dental ...

Involving ...

" New " ... Utensils ... !!!

This verse has ... " Rhyme Potential " ..
to earn myself ... " Credentials " ...
Instrumental and ... ESSENTIAL ... !!!!!
in showing just how ... SPECIAL ...

The use of words ... CAN BE ... !?!

Incredible ... INDEED ... !!!

Through use of ... " Poetry " ...

" Professional " ... " Exceptional " ...
Contextual ... " Collectibles " ...

Commendable ... " Indelible " ...
Credible ... and ... " Seminal " ...

You just wait and .... See ... !!!

Delectable ... Digestable ...
and Legible ... to Read ...

Prophetical ............................. ?

" Maybe " ......... ?!?

when speaking ...
About ... " Scenes " ..............................

Accesible in .... " Dreams " ....

Dreams of ... " Future Themes ............................

That change how ... " We Now Be " ...

REPREHENSIBLE ... INFLEXIBLE ... !!!

Susceptible ....
to ... GREED ... !!!!!

and acts Defined as  ... TERRIBLE ... !!!!!!

By ... Hypocrites Mostly ... !!!

The .....
" Electable " ... INTELLECTUALS ...

CONTEMPTIBLE ...
I Believe ... !!!!!! ...

Whose ... " Sentinels " ...
Directional ....
Points to .... Facilities ...

CORRECTIONAL ... " Man PLEASE !!! " ....

Their ... " Receptacles " ...
NEED ... " Medical " ...

So that ....
They can ... Receive ...

A ... " Congressional " ... REPRIEVE ... !!!

FREE OF ............................................................."Fal­lacies" ...... !!!!!

" Recessional " ... and Decimal.
According to ... " MP's " ... !?!

and Leaders .... INTERNATIONAL ...
Who Claim to be ... " Quite Rational " ...
when sending ...  " EXPENDABLE " ... Teams ... !!!
to make SPECTACLES ... Overseas ... !!! ...

Fit For ... " Flatscreen TV's " ... !!!
or YES ... for ... " Movie Screens " ... !!!!!

That Line ... would seem ... ?
to be a ... Connectable Seam ...
to some ... " Expendables 3 " ... !!!

But Before ... I end ...
This ..... Festival .....

of wordplay ... " Intertextual " ...

Has this been ... " Hypothetical " ... ?
or what's called ... Existential ... ?!?

Well ...
What It's ... NOT ...

Is ... ****** ... !!!!!

because it's from ... " My Mental " ...
and a meeting ... " Incidental " ..............................

That ...
Somehow got ... CEREBRAL ...

" Poetic and " ...
Quite Regal ...

Exhibiting to ... People ...

How my ... UNQUENCHABLE ...
THIRST ... is ... Exceptional ... !!!

for verse that's ..... Credible ....
Respectable and ... SENSIBLE ... !!!

But NOT THIS WORD ...... !!!!!!

... " Lamentable " ... !!!

YES It's ... " Intellectual " ...

Comprehensible and ... Connectable ...
because it flows like .... Ventricles ........................................................

It also is ... Commendable ...
and ... I'd say ... INCONTESTABLE ... !!!!!

When saying ....

" It's Incredible "
Just having some fun with words after being inspired, like the poem says, by a woman out jogging in the sun, by the Caribbean Sea .....
Big Virge Aug 2014
What is ..... with ......
All this ... " ATTITUDE " ... ?!?
  
It seems ... The ... " In Thing " ...
to simply be ... " Rude " ... !?! ...  
  
People in ... " The World " ...
are now .... So Crude .... !!!!!!!
  
Girls now walk streets ...
with arses ... in view ...  
  
" Prostitution's " ... RIFE ...  
But this ... " Isn't New " ... !!!!!!
  
So ....
If you have ... " A Bad Attitude " ... !!! ...
May I ask ... " What's wrong with you ? " ...
  
Do you feel ... " Misled " ... ???
Are you feeling ... " Upset " ... ???
  
Do you feel that your life ... ?
is just a .... " Pretence " .... ?
  
Do you feel as if ... ?
You'd be ... Better off ... DEAD ... !!!!!
  
Well ... if you do ... ?
It's Not Just ... YOU ... !!!!!
  
But it's ... NOT COOL ... !!!
to act the ... " Fool " ...  
and live your life ...
with .... ATTITUDE .... !!!!!
  
If life's ... " So Rough " ...
and you wanna ... " Act Tough " ...  
  
Get in ... THE RING ... !!!!!
Try on ... some gloves ...  
and if it ... " Suits " ...
Make WAR ... NOT Love ... !!!
  
I riSE ... abOVE ...
This ... " Attitude Stuff " ...  
  
But ... " Many suggest " ...
I'm ... " Billy Goat gruff " ...  
  
This ain't ... " Call My Bluff " ... !!!!!
  
But I guess it's cos' ... ???
I'm NOT ... " White Enough " ...  
to be .... " So Cool " ....
and ... NOT ... Wear Cuffs ...  
  
Presumption can make ... ???
People give ... ATTITUDE ... !!!
  
So .....
Don't just ... " Assume " ...
cos this might be ... ?
Your ... LAST MISTAKE ... !!!!
  
" Attitude " ... that arises ...
because of ... " Assumption " ...
can leave men with ... " Truncheon " ...
Without their ... Heart Function ... !!!
  
cos' Attitude ... quelled ...
will then reach ... COMBUSTION ... !!!!!
  
So ....
  
PLEASE ... Don't Assume ...
when you enter ... " A Room " ...  
  
Read this ... CLOSELY ... !!!
cos' when you ... Assume ...
  
You just make an ... " *** " ...
of ... Both You and Me ... !!! ...  
  
Did you ...  
Read it ... CLOSELY ... ???  
  
Break that word into ... " Three " ...
  
*** ...
" U " ...
and then ... ME ...  
  
Reminds me of a word ...
Yes ... " That Word " ... His - story
  
Just look at ... News Stories ...
and you ... Surely ... MUST SEE ... ?!?
  
Attitude's ... runnin" ....
on streets ... TOO FREELY ... !!!!!  
  
Even on terraces ... in Italy .... !?!
  
Inter ... or ... A.C.  
which fans ... can it be ... ???
  
I'm told these fans ...  
... " Attitude " ...
FRIGHTENS POLICE ..... !!!!!  
  
So .....
When they're ... Supposed ...
to use ... BRUTALITY ...  
  
They'd rather not use it ...
but ... bring it to ... " Me " ... ?!?
  
Kind of like people ...
who do ... " Poetry " ...
  
From trying to act ...
Like ... They Like ... what I read  ... !!!
Until I write words ...
That DISTURRRBBBB ... " Their Chi " ... !!!
  
Attitude ... ISN'T ME ... !!!
Come on ... Don't You See ...
  
My name is ... " Big Virge " ...
Friends call me ... " Big V " ...  
  
But ....
Unless i've told you ...
  
You'd better use ... VIRGIL ... !!!
  
Unless you are ready ...
to fall at ... " That Hurdle " ...  
  
This Isn't ... " The National " ...
My Poetry's ... " Rational " ...  
  
as are ... " My Thoughts " ...
which ... CANNOT ... be bought ... !!!!!
  
So ....
Ideas that you ... " Court " ...
of ... Any such .... " Sort " ....  
  
Take my advice ....
it's time to ... ABORT ... !!!!!
cos' ... Attitude's RIFE ...
when my temper ... " Runs short " ... !!!!!
  
So .... maybe it's time .... ?
to leave you ... " This Thought " ...  ???
  
Attitudes' ... Crude ...
and is something for ... FOOLS ...  
who think ... Being Rude ...
is now ... The New ... " COOL " ... ?!?
  
Well ....  
Check out ... This view ... !!!
  
You're NOT ... being cool ... !!!
You're acting ... THE FOOL ... !!!
  
Now ....
If you're a ... " Female " ... ?
  
PLEASE ... Refuse to use ...  
This ... " Needless Abuse " ... !!!
  
But ....
If you're a ... " Male " ... ?
  
Just be a ... " Cool Dude " ...  
and just do ... " What's Right ... !!!
  
REMOVE ... !!!
  
... " Attitude " ... !!!!!!
I think it's fair to say, that, some 10 years after I wrote this, these words are ringing a little too true now, from Gaza to your everyday street fights ... peoples' attitudes, right about now,  are really not nice !!!!!
