” A Fine Line ” … A Poem written and performed by Big Virge

So, in the week where the one and only, Sean Connery has died, may he rest in peace !

This weeks piece of Big Virge, Spoken Word Poetry, makes reference, all be it briefly, to the movie, “Just Cause”, a classic thriller in which he starred, alongside Blair Underwood and Ed Harris, who was quite brilliant, as a total psycho, in what I’d say was a fine film !

However, extraordinarily fine lines, seem to now be affecting everything from the, US Presidential Election, which Joe Biden now seems to have won, to lockdown measures, and the constant stresses that the Corona Virus is placing on economies, and people’s mental well being !

There seem to be more, immediate lockdown protests, all be they small, than the first time around, as well as voting protests in America, where the threat of violence is walking a very fine line of possibly kicking off, however that to me, at this point, still doesn’t seem likely, in any totally extreme way, no matter what media outlets are trying to say !

The fine margins or lines, that to me, haven’t been so fine, that are coming from news media, seem to be incredibly biased, as well as highly confusing, if you were to be following these things much more, due to being at home !

It’s no surprise that some people are losing their minds, when it comes being confined, as well as trying to decipher, the utter madness that is filling news headlines !

The usual issues of just, trying to live life, for many now, are now on tighter lines, than they have been for a while, to simply, maintain a degree of stability, or for many, unlike anything that they’ve ever seen or felt before !!!

So, it seems that much is in store, when it comes to future laws, and things being enforced, that may just require more than courts to sort out, and I think that this is now, a very real scenario for a while to come, WITHOUT ANY DOUBT !!!

So, even though being written, many years before the world has gotten to this crazy place, there are few fine rhymes in this weeks offering, which is called…….

“A Fine Line” … A poem written by Big Virge 21/7/2006

Folks …
It is a … ” Fine Line ” … !!!
that … Clearly … Defines …
the road that I … Walk …
with words that I … Rhyme …

cos’ … words that I … talk …
may see me … in … Court … !!!

without … ” Sean ” …
or … ” Just Cause ” … !!!

because of YES … ” Them ” …
Those in … Governments …
and Those … who they … send …
to enforce … ” Poor Judgements ” … !!!!!

but ofcourse … They’ll Contend …
That … My Wordplay … OFFENDS …
and may well stir up … ” Trouble ” … !!!
and cause …. ” VIOLENCE ” …. !!!!! ….

But ….
It’s okay for … THEM … ?!!!?
to say … ” What They Like ” … !???!
and Declare … Their War Fights …
as forms of …. ” Defence ” ….
when plans they … Design …
keep causing … PROBLEMS … !!?!!

Well ….
It doesn’t seem like … ?
their actions are … Right … !?!
When … Every … News Night
The Things … In Our Sight …
KEEP … Showing Us … VISIONS …
of people who … ” DIE ” … !!!!! …

Now ….
That’s A … “Fine Line” …
I have … Re-designed …
from Princes’ … ” Great Song “…
The … ” Sign ‘o’ The Times ” …

So …
Don’t get me … wrong … !!!
My lines are … ” Refined ” …
and Clearly … “BELONG” … !!!
where fine lines … recline …

Each line that I write ….
Proves my mind is …

…… ” Inclined ” ……

to write about crimes
affecting …. Our lives ….

and it is a … “Fine Line’ …
that helps me to … FIND …
a way to … ” Express ” … !!! …

My … ” Anger and Stress ” …
About … How We … TRY … !!!
to do … what is … “RIGHT” … !!!!

But …..
What does this mean ?!?
in a world so … “Unclean” … !!!!!

What do we stand for … ?
when going to … WAR … !?!

We should take a ……………..
………………………………………

…… Pause …………..

and … THINK of … Our Cause …
Is making …. Blood …. POUR ….
what we’re … Really here for … ?!!!?

If you’re thinking … “YES” …
Are you …. ” Really Sure ” …. ???

How would you feel ?

if the blood poured
was ….. YOURS …… !!!

or ….
Someone … YOU LOVED … !!!
and Really … Cared For … !!!!!!

Well
As these lines … State …

It is a … “Thin Line” …
between YES …..

” Love and Hate ” …

but ….

“Hating” … For REAL … !!!
Won’t help us … Relate … !!!

These days …
it’s quite … CLEAR …
The Dangers of … FEAR … !!!!!

But …
That’s … Nothing New … !!!

The past’s given clues …
of how … IGNORANCE … Fuels …
individuals to … USE …
Torture and … “Abuse” …
Through crews filled with … FOOLS …
who think … Hatred … IS COOL … !!!!?!!!!

Well ….
Hatred Profiled …
Does NOT … !!! …
Lead to … Smiles …

It leads to a … place …
That’s Not … quite so great …
and leads us … though leaders …
who like to …. DICTATE ….

Like those around …. NOW …. !!!
who want to … “Clamp Down” …
on people like …. me ….
whose wordplay’s … So Neat …

That …. Our Poetry ….
Gives Policemen … ” A Beat ” …
That makes them … RETREAT … !!!!!

See what I mean … !!!

My … Poetry Seams …
are … Suitably … Clean …
and walk a … Fine Line …
of … ” Quality Rhymes ” …
that … Bypass … Extremes …

because they’re … Inclined …
to …. ” UNIFY ” …. minds ….

See …. that’s how i’d like
My Wordplay … DEFINED … !!!!!

Speaking … Your Mind …
Should … NOT BE … A Crime … !!!!!

Unless what you say …
Divides and spreads …

…… ” HATE ” ….. !!!!!

I’d rather spread … ” LOVE ” …
Through … ” Kisses and Hugs ” … !!!

while most now … Indulge …

In Acting like … THUGS …
and taking … HARD DRUGS …
when they’ve …. had ….
… ” Quite ENOUGH ” … !!!!!

People like … THESE …
make me want to … CUSS … !!!!!!!

But ….
These days i’m … TRYING …
to … Rise uP …. ABOVE ….

These … ” Wannabee Thugs ”

Who spread talk of … ” Dying ”
cos’ their words … NEED … !!!

……. ” Refining ” ……. !!!!!!

Things you … Put Out …
Come back son …

…. ” Don’t Doubt ” …. !!!!!

Now, that’s a … Fine Line …
that’s got … Lots of … CLOUT … !!!

So think … CAREFULLY … !!!
before … Running Your Mouth … !!!!!

Fine Lines … that I write …
of … Upsetting Designs …
are … NOT to … Start Fights … !!!

So ….
REMEMBER … That Line … !!!!!

They may cause … Offence …
and may cause … Arguments …

But ……
USE …. ” Common Sense ” ….
and … REJECT … ” Violence ” … !!!

Keep a … ” Cool Head ” …
Like … “Des Dekker” … said … !!!!!

Then … Pick up a … PEN
rather than … Make Attempts …
to bring me …. DISTRESS …. !!!!!!!

cos’ you …
want to … SUPPRESS
A view i’ve expressed …
that’s left you … UPSET … !!!!!

That message is … SENT …
to those … ” Jealous Gents ” …
Who Think they’re the … BEST …
at writing … Fine Lines …
with words that they … Rhyme …

Well … CLEARLY …
They’re … “BLIND” … !!! …
and … Out of Their … Mind … !!!!!!

to think that … Their Rhymes …
are … Better Than … MINE … ?!? …

Those causing us … STRESS … !!! …
are those in … ” Governments ” … !!!!!

They … Plan to … DIVIDE …
NOT … see us … ” UNITE ” … !!!!!

THINK … about that …
before starting … FIGHTS … !!!!!

” Black On Black ” …. crime …
has been … ” Long Designed ” …

Don’t You … think it’s time … ?!?

We start to fight … THEM … ?!?!?
and their … ” Bogus Systems ” … !!!

That’s where …..

I will … END …
This simple … Poem …

cos’ …

Words in … ” Those Lines ” …
May … cause me … PROBLEMS … !!!!!

Even though ….

Their JUST … Rhymes
that flow … and … DEFINE
How the words … I Transcribe …

REALLY WALK … !!! …

…. ” A Fine Line ” ….
