So … whose thinking it now ??? … “Leaving London” … a poem by Big Virge written 14/10/2005

LEAVING LONDON … ?
I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY ….
COS THINGS AREN’T SAFE …
ON STREETS AT NIGHT … !!!

MORE GUNFIGHTS …
AS CHILDREN DIE …

WHY ….. ?????

TO PROVE …
THEY ARE … “TOUGH GUYS !”

IT’S HARD THESE DAYS …
TO ….. CHERISH LIFE ….
WHEN … MANY NOW …
CARRY ….. BIG KNIVES ….. !!!

MONEY … IS … THE ONLY PRIZE
THAT …. KEEPS YOU FROM …
THAT …. SLIPPERY SLIDE ….

DOWN TO WHERE …
DEAD PEOPLE … LIE …

NOT …. DEAD LIKE THAT …. !!!
BUT …. WITHOUT SIGHT ….

THINKING ….. CASH …..
CAN SAVE THEIR LIFE …. ?

CAN THIS BE RIGHT …. ?
THIS ….. LONDON LIFE ….
WHEN IT IS HARD …
TO FIND A … WIFE … !!!

OR … A … MAN ….
WHO’S NOT … A SHAM …

“LADIES ….. !!!!!”
DON’T END UP WITH THEM … !!!

FIND ONE ….
WHO IS …… ” STABLE ” …..
AND WILL TAKE CARE …
OF YOUR ….. CHILDREN …..

COS … LONDON NOW …
IS INDEX ….. DOW
BUT …. CASH IS SIMPLY ….
PENCE … AND … POUNDS …
AND DOESN’T MAKE …..
YOUR IDEAS ….. SOUND …… !!!

JUST LOOK AT PRICES ……
IN OUR TOWN ….. !!!!!

THEY ARE MAKING …
PEOPLE ….. FROWN ….. !!!!!

IT’S AS IF IT’S RUN …
BY … CIRCUS CLOWNS … !!!

TUBE LINES ARE …
NOW … SHUTTING DOWN …
BECAUSE ….. TUBE BRAKES ……
AREN’T WORKING …. NOW …. !!!!!

PEOPLE KEEP … SAYING TO ME …
THAT LONDON AIN’T …
THE PLACE TO BE …
IF YOU WANT A … ” FAMILY ”

I DON’T WANT KIDS …..
BUT … PARENTS SEEM …..
TO HAVE THEMSELVES …
A … DIFFERENT … DREAM ……….

A COUNTRY LIFE …
WITH … PLEASANT SIGHTS …
THAT’S THE PLAN …
BUT … ARE THEY RIGHT … ?

FLOOD WATERS ….
AND …. RISING TIDES …

NO … NOT BY SEA … ?
TRY … ” COUNTRYSIDE !!!” …

“Ahhhh …. okay cool ….
that seems alright ….
but ….. isolation …..
from the nation ….
while your kids ….
play on … PLAYSTATION ?”

“It’s cool though bro ….
I’d rather that ….
than take that road ….
down to …. SOHO …. ”

THERE’S STUFF GOING ON ….
YOU DON’T … WANT TO KNOW … !!!

CLUBS NOW FILLED WITH …
DRUNKEN ….. BLOKES ……

DRUGGING GIRLS …
AND … SNORTING COKE …
JUS LIKE ALI’S … “ROPE A DOPE” …

PEOPLE ACT …..
LIKE …. THEY AIN’T BROKE ….

BUT …. THAT’S THE WAY ….
THE STORY GOES ….

HIGHS AND LOWS ….
POETIC …. FLOWS ….
STORYTELLING ….
USING …. PROSE ….

IT’S JUST MY VIEW ….
DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOURS …. !?!

WE’RE … U.S. … BOUND ….
HOW DOES THAT …. SOUND …. ?

LIKE NEW ORLEANS …..
WE COULD BE DROWNED …..
ALL BECAUSE OF …..
CHASING …. POUNDS ….. !

I WANT TO SEE …..
SUNSHINE ….. ALL DAY ….. !!!!!
BEACHES ….. YES ……
RIGHT BY A BAY …… !!!!!

COUNTRYSIDE …..
WHERE CHILDREN PLAY …..

IT MIGHT SEEM …
AS THOUGH …

” I’M IN A DAZE ….. ”

BUT SOMEHOW THINGS …..
WOULD SEEM ….. O.K. …..

DO YOU SEE …. WHAT I’M SAYING … ?
AT THE END OF THE DAY … ?

THERE HAS TO BE …..

A BETTER WAY ….. !!!!!!!!!

THESE ARE THINGS …..
I HEAR FOLKS SAY …..

THIS HAS BECOME …..
A …. HOT …. QUESTION …..

“Excuse me son ………..

LEAVING LONDON ????????”

Peace & guidance y’all …..
