So …. What's In A Word ?
  
Well A Word Like ... F**K ...
Can Possibly Mean You've Run Out of Luck ... !!!  
    
Now A Word Like  … ” LOVE ”…  
Gives HATRED A SHOVE ..… !!!!!  
And Can ELEVATE You ….  
To The Sky With … “ THE DOVES ” … !!!  
    
The Words We Use Can Be … BEAUTY FILLED …
Like An Evening When The Chardonnay’s Chilled …
Or The Day That Your Lifetime Ambition's FULFILLED … !!!!!  
  
But THIS Word … KILLED …  
Means NEEDLESS BLOOD ...
Once Again Has Been SPILLED ... !!!    
    
When You Hear The Word ... TUNE …  
You're Probably In A Music FILLED Room …  
  
While A Word Like … BOOM …  
Explains Moments of DOOM … !!!  
    
While ASSUME I Associate …...  
With Those Who See ***** … !!!  
    
But The Words … FULL MOON …  
Describe A Sky CLEAR of ... Gloom ... !!!  
  
While The Word MONSOON …  
Means The Weather's Gone CRAZY ...  
Like … Bugs Bunny Cartoons … !!!  
    
While A Word Like INSIGHT ...  
Describes The Style With Which I Write ...  
    
While Words Like ... “ GET OFF ! ” ...  
Means A Girl's Had ENOUGH ... !!!  

And When A Girl Uses ... NO ... !!!    
It Means ... You'd Better GO ... !!!  
  
Or DOES IT ... Well THEY KNOW … !!!
    
But A Word Like ...  " **** " ...  
Means OH OH It's ... TOO LATE … !!!  
It's Time For You To See A MAGISTRATE ... !!!!!  
    
While A Word Like … “ COURT ” …  

Used To Mean .....  
Alluring A Woman To Help Build A Man's FORT ... !!!  
    
While A Word Like ... "short"…  
Can Define A Vertically Challenged Type TAUNT …  
    
Now A Word Like … VAUNT ...  
Defines Arrogance You FLAUNT … !!!
    
While A Word Like  … COLOUR …  
Is Used To Separate People From Each Other  …… ?!?  
    
So ...... When I Hear The Word UNITY …  
It's A Word That Makes Me Feel TRULY HAPPY … !!!  
    
But GUILTY BELIEVE … !!!    
Is A Word I DON'T Wanna Have Said TO ME … !!!  
And VANITY Defines How Most Young People Be ...  
    
But That ... Just ISN'T Me ... !!!  
I’m Just Using Words That May Play A Part In Our DESTINY …  
By Helping This Thing We Call ... HUMANITY ... !!!  
    
Now THAT'S A Word That Fills Me With GLEE … !!!    
But It Seems These Days ...  
That This Is A Word From Which People ..................... FLEE ... ?!?  
    
We're All Caught Up In … “ TECHNOLOGY ” …  
A Word That REFLECTS Much of What We Now See ...  
From Laptops To Phones To .... WIDESCREEN TV’S ... !!!  
But These Are Just WORDS So I Hope You Can See ...  
Words Can Define YOU And Can Define ... ME ... ?  
    
But Words Like POWER Can Make People COWER ... !!!  
And Can Turn Weak Men Into CROOKS By The Hour ... !!!  
    
And Then Comes The SHOWER ...  
Leaving A Taste In STARVED MOUTHS ...
That's ... EVER SO SOUR ... !!!!!!!!!!  
    
While ….  
BEAUTY And PEACE Define Words Like FLOWER …  
    
So What's In An Hour Well ... Sixty Minutes …  
See Time Like My Rhymes DEFINES ... Infinite ... !!!  
    
INFINITE Skills With Keyboard or Quill ... !!!
So Is There A Word That ... DEFINES My Will … ???  
    
NOT Will As In ... DEATH LINE ... !!!  
But WILL As In ... What Runs Through My Mind …  
    
So With A Quivering Quiet Quintessence ….  
These Words I Write Like Hip Hop Lessons  ...
    
My Words Are Wrapped Like Christmas Presents … !!!  
What's With All This NONSENSE Defence To Offence … ?  
Why Don't People Just Use Some ... COMMON Sense ... !?!
  
Cos' Words Nowadays Are Misused And Abused ...  
By FOOLS Who Could Do With A LIFETIME SENTENCE …. !!!!  
    
"Sorry sir, not deferred, you're gonna do bird,
cos' your usage of language is truly absurd !"  
    
While My Style of Linguistics .......  
Is Now The Preferred .....  
Way of Passing On KNOWLEDGE …  
    
So …….  
    
" What's In My Words ? " ..........
This piece was basically about me moulding and developing my style, and learning how to weave words into verse, thus, this was part of my early learning curve ...
Big Virge Mar 26
" They Are " … My Best Friends … !!!!!  

They Blend and Transcend ...
Beyond The Nonsense That Inspires Them … !!!
  
They DO NOT Defend Acts of Ignorance … !!!  
But Are My Defence When Facing Problems … !!!!!  
  
So They Are Never Far From My Mind Or My Heart ...  
Because They Bear SCARS From My Future And Past …  
  
Sometimes They Are DARK ...  
And Choose To Impart ...
Visions of PAIN That Rest In My Brain …  
  
Some Claim They're INSANE … !!!
Because of The Way They Are When ENRAGED … !!!!
  
Or Maybe They Play On Minds Who Retain ...
The Things They Explain When They Hit My Page … !!!
And The CORE of The Strain That Is Their Human Stain … !!!!!  
  
They Are Sometimes WRONG But Mostly Are STRONG …..
And NEVER WEAR Thongs To Get The ... " Come On " ... !!!!!  
  
They Are Rarely Called ...
But Clearly Are Chosen … !!!!!
To Show What Is … " Broken " …  
  
So ...  Are NOT FOR ALL … !!!!!  
Which Isn't Quite True ...
  
... " They Are " ...
  
YES For You And Are For Me Too … !!!!!!!
  
So Please Don't Confuse The Way They Are Used …  
They Are ABOVE FOOLS and That's Just THE TRUTH … !!!
  
The TRUTH They Consume And Eat Like GOOD FOOD … !!?!!

They RARELY Are Rude But REACT To Abuse ... !!!  
In .... Composure Filled Manners ….  
That Lyrically HAMMERS Wannabee' Dr. Banners ... !!!!!!  
  
They Are More Inclined To Pacify Crimes …  
That Rest In The Minds of Those Lacking Sight ...  
BEYOND Foolish Pride ... That Then Threatens Life … !?!?!  
  
They Are NOT THE TYPE To Walk Such Fine Lines … !!!  
Unless They're Comprised of Clever Designs …  
That Exhibit ANGST WITHOUT Tools In My Hands … !!!
  
Other Than Those That STAND For More Than Bloodshed ...
Because They Instead ... DEFEND PEACEFUL Ends ... !!!!!!!
  
THEY ARE About PEACE And MORE UNITY … !!!!!
  
So Don't EVER Concede To Violent Scenes …  
Or Falling For GREED FALLACIES Or War Deeds … !!!!!
  
THEY ARE  More In Tune With … " REALITY " … !!!!!
  
So Have To Consume Everything That They See … !!!
Surround Them Confound Them And … INSPIRE ME … !!!!!  
  
To Use What They Are To Define What's REVEALED … !!!
So YES They Are SHARP And Deal In What's REAL ... !!!
  
So YES Steel Themselves ...  
For Those Whose Intel ...  
Employs ... Hounds of Hell  … !!!!!
  
They Are NOT About Killing Or Into Blood Spilling … !!!!!  
  
So ... Are NOT Forgiving To Those Who Keep Spinning …  
Lies To Our Children When They ARE NOT Pilgrims … !!!
  
They Are About MORE Than Those Who ENSURE ...
That TRUTH Shouldn't Walk OUTSIDE Certain Doors … !!!!!
  
From Whales Forced To Shore To Those In Corridors ...  
Whose Rhetoric's FLAWED Because It's Been BOUGHT … !!!!!!
  
They Are BEYOND Teams Because They ARE ME … !!!!!  
YES They Are My Words They Are YES … My Verse …  
  
They Are More Than Poems I Choose To Express ... !!!
They Come From The Depths of My Creative Head …  
  
They AREN'T Always Right ... !!!
But Sometimes Are … SUBLIME … !!!
  
Because ...  
Sometimes They Find …  
Their Way To … The LIGHT … !!!!!  
  
Where What They Bring …  
  
……… SHINES ……… !!!!!!!!!!!
  
And Rhymes With Insights That OPEN The Minds …  
Who Want To See RIGHT ... Within These Dark Times ... !!!
  
" They Are " …..
  
Part of My Psyche Both Daily And Nightly …  
And FILL UP My Mind With Verse That I Write ….  
  
And Sometimes I DO … !!!
Sit And Ask Myself … WHY … ???
  
They Are So Attuned To So Much In This Life …  
That Many REFUSE To See As The TRUTH …  
  
THEY ARE TRUE To ME And Help Me To FREE …
The Things That I See In This World Filled With …  
  
……...........… " DREAMS " ………...........
  
That To Me Seem ….. " UNCLEAN " ….. !!!!!!!  
  
They Are Simply The Words …  
That Come From … Big Virge … !!!!!
  
They AREN'T Meant To HARM … !!!!!!  
Like I Said At The Start They Come From My Heart …  
  
And REFLECT On These Things …  
My Future … And Past ………..
Through Poetic Scripts of TRUE Life Lyrics …  
  
Because …. THAT ….  
  
….. " They Are "  ……
As the poem says, they have indeed, become my best friend !

Let Me Ask You THIS People
  
...... " Are You READY ? " .....
"Are You Ready ?" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 1/5/2006
Big Virge Dec 2019
Do You Ever Get The URGE To Write Down Words ...
Which When Observed Help People ... LEARN ... ?!?    
  
Its HARD To Know What's Good To Use ... ?  
When Writing Prose That Gives Out Clues ...  
About Your Views And ... " Darkest Moods " ... !!!  
    
When Some Conclude That ... " You've got issues ! " ...  
    
EVERYONE DOES And That's The TRUTH ... !!!  
    
So DON'T Write For THEM ... !!!!!  
Try .... Writing For YOU .... !!!!!    
    
Do You Feel ... IMPELLED ... ?  
Or In Other Words ... URGED ... ?  
Or Let's Say ... COMPELLED  .... !?!  
To SELL YOURSELF To Acquire Wealth ... !?!  
    
Such An Urge Can Make Some Learn ...  
To Do Things THAT Make Stomachs CHURN ... !!!  
    
Like MANY Have Said It's HARD TO EARN ... !!!  
ESPECIALLY When You Try To Collect ...    
When It's ... NOT Your Turn ... !!!?!!!  
    
"DO NOT PASS GO, GIVE BACK THAT CASH !"  
    
"I Think You KNOW You Haven't Earnt HAT !"  
    
That's Just A Joke But It Makes Me MAD ... !!!  
When CERTAIN Folks Leave People BROKE ... !!!!!  
    
Like Certain Police Who've Now Been Shown ...  
To ROB Old People of Their Homes ... !?!  
    
So That They Can Pay For FIVE STAR Holidays ... ?!?  
That's A News Story I've Read ... Today ... !!!  
    
Well I'm GLAD To Say He's Been LOCKED AWAY ... !!!!!  
    
So Do You Ever Get The Urge To Chat Up Girls ... ?  
Especially When They've ...    
Got Those Curves That Make Heads Turn ... ?!!!?    
    
Be CAREFUL Now You May Get BURNED ... !!!!!  
    
If She Looks THAT HOT She's Probably Got ...    
A Number of Hounds Chasing Her Around Town ... !!!!!  
    
And May Often Work Her Way Down South ...  
With A Mouth Just Like A CIRCUS CLOWN ... !!!!!!  
    
And Probably Gives It Up  ...  
For Money ANY Currency ...    
Dollars Euros Or Pounds ... !!!!!  
    
I Can Hear Them Now !  
    
"Without some cash for me to burn,  
Control that urge, and wait your turn !"  
    
I'm Saying Girls What's Up With THAT ... ?!?  
    
I URGE You To Show MORE Virtue ... !!!  
There's CLEARLY Something WRONG With You ... !!!!!    
    
So ...    
Do You Ever Get The URGE To Use ****** Tools ... !?!  
    
Well Like The Girls In THAT Last Verse ...  
Such PERVERSE Attitudes Prove You Probably DO ... !!!  
    
Well That's NOT Quite True ... !!!  
    
Don't Get It Confused ... !!! ? !!!  
Some Couples Now Choose To Fill Bedrooms ...  
With ****** Cuffs And OTHER Stuff ...    
To Feed Their Needs For WILD *** Sprees ... !!!  
    
Now Let Me Explain ...  
My Views On This Subject STRAIGHT And PLAIN ... !!!  
    
I REALLY LOVE *** ... !!!!!  
    
But **** Underwear Is Enough For Me ... !!!!!  
Because I Have To Say It's Great to Play ... !!!!!!  
But At The End of The Day ...  
*** ISN'T A Game When Girls Cry ... " **** " ... !!!!!!!  
    
Some Girls Get The Urge When They Feel HURT ...  
To SET MEN UP When They've Had ENOUGH ... !!!!!  
    
"Come on, pull my hair, yes there, Ooooo YEAH !"    
    
THEY ARE Out There So Fellas BEWARE ... !!!!!  
BEFORE You End Up In A ... " Courtroom Chair " ... !!!!!  
    
SCARY Words ... !!!!!  
But Do You Ever Get The URGE ... ?  
To Just RETURN To Your ... " Ex-girl " ... ?  
    
Well That's An URGE That May NOT Work ... !!!  
Because She Is Your Ex For A Reason ... YES ... !!!!!  
    
If You MISS HER ... COOL ...  
But DON'T Be  A FOOL ...  
    
PLEASE THINK It Through If You Make That Move ...  
Lay Down The Rules Then DO YOUR DO .... !!!!!!  
    
Just Like ... " BRAND NEW " ... !!!!!!!  
    
So Do You Ever Get The URGE To Simply OBSERVE ...    
And Watch Individuals ... In This World ... ?  
    
I Have To Say Sometimes I Do ...    
Because It Helps Me Fuel My Poetic Wordplay ...  
That's Why My Words Leave So MANY STIRRED ... !!!!!  
I Guess Some THINK I'm A Bit DISTURBED ... !!!!!!!  
    
I URGE Them To NOT Hold Such Views ... !!!    
    
It's REALITY ... My Poetry ... !!!!!  
And Is Mostly Based On Things I've Seen ... !!!  
    
If My Words SHOCK Or Give You KNOCKS ... !!!  
Like Marvin Said ... " What's Going On ? " ...  
    
Can You NOT SEE Things Are Going WRONG ... !!!!!  
    
From Relationships To Modern Day Kids ...  
I'm Simply Sharing My Views On Things ...  
    
Things Like STINGS For Diamond Rings ...  
And Peoples' Cash To Live Life FLASH ... !!!  
    
While MANY Have NOTHING DON'T It Make You MAD ... ?!?  
    
That's Why I Get The URGE To Put Pen To Pad ...  
And Write These Words That Sometimes HURT ...    
    
When Based On FACT WHATEVER THAT Is .... !?!  
These Days We See So MANY Things That Make Us SICK ...    
From Poli-Tricks To .... " Starving Kids " ... !!!  
This Is Why I Think Like GOOD Music ...    
    
We NEED To PRESERVE This Use of Words ...  
Through .... " Poetry " ....  
    
So ... EVEN If They DISTURB Or Leave You STIRRED ...    
When It Comes To ... Words ...  
    
" Do You EVER Get The Urge ? "
Big Virge Nov 2019
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 !!!

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 " ...

So ....  LISTEN Close ...  
To ... This Here Prose ...  
Cos' ... Crudeness In YOU ...  
May Get ... EXPOSED ... !!!

WITHOUT The ... " Bose " ... !!!

Seem To ... INDULGE ...  
Poets Whose Minds ...  
AREN'T Open But CLOSED ... ?!?

My Cool For ... FOOLS ... !!!  
Who Choose To Use ...  
The Mic' To Be ... RUDE ...  
  
ANTIQUATED Views ...

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 ... !!!!

As said, basically inspired by Stevie Wonder,
and especially, the album, Inner Visions,
Akshi Hargoon May 2019
Her mind is a bunch of tangled wires
Waiting to be taken apart individually
By the one man that dares
To wonder through her madness
Akshi Hargoon May 2019
he was her air
giving her a beautiful life
a life suited for a queen
but suffocating
her on certain days - shutting the palace doors
making her see an explosion of colour
but immersing her into a dark dungeon
her mind became a spiders web
trapping her most intense feelings
allowing her to maintain her golden smile
while making sense of her devastation within
this war is hers to fight for she refuses to give up
she still sees the beautiful life and opened palace doors
Akshi Hargoon Mar 2019
And in his eyes I see love
I could stare at them for hours
Never tire
This love that's just for me
I'd happily drown in them
And feel at peace
