Just while i’m on this subject of class …. “Class”, a poem written by Big Virge 5/4/2005

WHAT DOES THIS …..
“CLASS THING” …. MEAN TO YOU … ?
SOMEONE WHO WENT ….
TO A …. PUBLIC SCHOOL … ?

OR A GENT IN A … “BOWLER” … ?
WHOSE DEMEANOUR IS … “COOL” … ?

WELL ….
IF THAT DEFINES ….
CLASS TO YOU ….
WATCH LAUREL AND HARDY …
THEY WORE THEM TOO ….

BUT ALL THEY DID WAS ….
ACT THE …. FOOL …. !!!

ME …. ??? ….
WELL I WENT ….
TO YOUR … AVERAGE … SCHOOL
SURROUNDED BY KIDS ….
WITH A FEW WHO WERE … FOOLS … !!!

AND SOME CAME … UNSTUCK …
WITHOUT …. ANY GLUE ….
COS THEY LEFT SCHOOL ….
WITHOUT … PAYING THEIR DUES …

LIKE …

LEARNING IN LESSONS ….
INSTEAD OF … GIRL STRESSING …

WELL ….
I’M THE TEST PRESSING ….
TO PROVE THAT … SOME LESSONS …
CAN LEAVE PEOPLE STRESSING
AND YES …. SECOND GUESSING … ???

WHAT CLASS AM I FROM … ???
I’M NOT FROM A CLASS … !!!
EXCEPT A … CLASSROOM …
BUT … THAT ISN’T TRUE …

MY MUM AND DAD KNEW …
WHAT COUPLES … SHOULD DO … !!!
IN THE PRIVACY OF ….
A … DOUBLE … BEDROOM … !!!

IC1
IC3 ….
HOW ABOUT …. IC2 … ???

DO THESE STUPID … GROUPINGS
DEFINE …. WHAT IS YOU … ! ??? !

WELL ….
IF THEY DO ….
GOOD LUCK TO YOU … !!!

BUT …. POLICE ….
LIKE THE GOVERNMENT ….
DEFINE … WHO THEY CHOOSE ….

JUST SO ….
THEIR PUPPETS ….
CAN … DISH OUT ABUSE …

BEING BLACK …
IS A CLASS …
ALL OF …. IT’S OWN …. !!!

COS MOST OTHER FOLK …
DON’T ENTER THE ZONES …
WHERE BLACKS ARE …. DEEMED ….
TO LIVE …. “UNCONTROLLED” …. !!!!! ….

I’VE LOST CONTROL ….
A COUPLE OF TIMES ….

BUT NOW … I STICK TO …
WRITING …. RHYMES ….
TO SHOW MY CLASS ….
BY … USING … MY MIND …

CLASS DISTINCTIONS ….
GO WITH …. NARROW MINDS ….
WHILE WORDS I WRITE ….
DEFINE THE TIMES ….
WITHOUT … “CLASS” … SIGNS … !!!

I’M JUST ANOTHER VICTIM ….
OF … “WESTERN” … SYSTEMS …
THAT KEEP US … A P A R T …
BY USE OF ….. ” ISM’S” ….

CAPITALISM …..
IS A …. “CLASSLESS” …. ISM ….
COS …. IF YOU BELIEVE ….
YOU’RE JUST …. CASH DRIVEN ….

WHILE RACISM …. IS ….
A …. CLASS-FILLED …. ISM
WHERE BLACKS ARE … DEEMED …
TO BE FIT … FOR … PRISON …

BUT THAT’S NOT ME …. !!!!
I HAVEN’T BEEN …. IN EM’ ….

I GREW UP IN LONDON ….
ACTUALLY …. WEST EALING ….
BUT THIS DOESN’T MEAN ….
THAT I’M LIKING …. “DARJEELING” …. !!!

THIS CLASS NEEDS SOME … CLEANING … !!!
COS LIVING THIS LIFE ….
DOES NOT …. HAVE A CEILING ….

THIS AIN’T MONTY PYTHON … !!!
LIFE HAS … DEEPER … MEANING ……….

THAN … VISIONS OF … ” CLASS ” …

THIS THING … I SURPASS …
WHILE … SHATTERING … GLASS ………….

HOUSES …. FOR LOUSES ….
AND I’M NOT TALKING … “SCOUSERS” …
THEY’RE ALRIGHT WITH ME …
IT’S PEOPLE … IN LONDON …

WITH … “NO CLASS” … I BELIEVE … !!!

I CAN TELL BY THEIR LOOKS ….
WHEN THEY’RE LOOKING AT ME ….
THESE PEOPLE ARE FULL OF …..

……. ” HYPOCRISY ” ……… !!!!!

THIS IS …. HOW CLASSY ….
TRUE LONDONERS …. BE ….
WHO THEN HAVE THE CHEEK ….
TO DEFINE WHO I BE ….

MY FATHER AND FRIENDS ….
USED TO RUN IN BARE FEET ….

MY MUM USED TO TEACH ….
AND BOTH OF THEM CAME ….
FROM THAT … “BAJAN” … COUNTRY
WITH …. SUGAR CANE FIELDS ….
AND WHITE SANDY BEACH ….

MY FATHER IS NOW ….
AN …. OSTEOPATH ….

SO …. LET’S LOOK AT THAT ….
HE’S TREATED … STAR ATHLETES …
AND WHITE FOLK ….
THAT’S …. FACT ….

DOES THIS GIVE THEM A PASS ….
TO BE …. “MIDDLE CLASS” …. ???

EVEN THOUGH ….
I AM BLACK ….

THIS STUPID CLASS QUESTION …
IS SIMPLY …. A FARCE ….

DIVISIONS ARE VAST ….
LIKE A GALLEON MAST ….
BUT … BREAKING THESE BOUNDARIES …
IS A TASK …. BEYOND …. CLASS ….

SO …..
THIS THING’S …. UNCERTAIN ….

WHO REALLY HAS … ???

…….. CLASS ………. ???

I’M OUT Y’ALL ……
