” I’m The Cat WITHOUT The Hat ” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 22/11/2006

Well, as any good poet knows, ” Dr. Seuss “, ” Cat In the Hat “, type verse, is stuff you need to have at least read, ONCE, as it has touched millions of adults and children, across the globe, with it’s witty, clever, insight filled, rhyme schemes, that may have seemed, very basic and simple, but, ALWAYS offered a Pearl of Wisdom, somewhere within em’, so, as we are in the season of Festive Cheer ….

Here’s a poem that’s about as close as i’ll get to showing a slightly, lighter hearted side, to my poetic mind.

However, as said, just like the good Doc’s verse, this has deeper connotations, hidden inside …. so, take the ride and …..

Enjoy folks ……

So …………………..

Let me just … Say This …

I’m The Cat …
WITHOUT … The Hat … !!!

Who …
Writes about … THIS …
And …
Writes about … THAT …

Or YES … That Chap … !!!
Whose Wordplay … Shows …

I’m ….
Searching for … FACTS … !!!

Facts about … ” Why ” …
Life’s NOT … So Nice … ?!?

Is it …
The Choices we make
About our … ” Welfare State ” … ?

Do we …
REALLY Have A Choice … ???

Or Do … Leaders DICTATE … ?!?
By … Using Ploys …
to … Div-ide … Our Race …

The … ” HUMAN ” … Race … !!!!!

So Don’t EVER … Mistake …

My Use of … Poetry …
As A Path … to … Race Hate … !!!

Now I’m …
NO …. Doctor Seuss’ …

But …
Here’s the news …

My Poetry … Moves …
Kind of like his … ” Smooth ”

So Let’s QUICKLY … ” Recap ” … !!!

I’m NOT … The Cat …

” WHY ” … ???

Some FORSAKE … What’s RIGHT … ?!?!?

So …
What is … WRONG … ?

What is … RIGHT … ?

That’s A Question that … ” Belongs ” …
In the … ” Annals of Time ” … !!! ….

So does anyone … CARE … ???

For what may … become …
A World of ….. PROBLEMS ….. !!!

Do You ….

DON’T Procrastinate Now … !!!
Take Your Chance … to … SPEAK … !!!

Before you’re …
FORCED To … FROWN … !!!

By Those who belong …
Somewhere …” Down South ” … !!!

Does your …
Future Look … ” SWEET ” … ?!?

Or ….

I Believe … The words be …

“Yo, Keep It REAL !”

Do You … TRULY FEEL … ?
That You’ve … Got A … Good Deal … !?!

In The … ” Circle of Life ” …
That SPINS Like … Wheels …

The Cycle … REVEALS … !!!

While MANY … “conceal” …

OFFENDS and UPSETS …

” Those ” … Ladies and Gents …

That THEY … Will REJECT …

EXPRESSION … Like This …
That … Has it’s … OWN SECT … !!!

” Poetic ” …
Well YES … !!!

” Spoken Word ” …
When it’s … SAID … !!!

But …..
Let me just … STRESS …

It’s UNIQUE …
Like A … ” Gem ” … !!!

When I …
Pick Up … My Pen …
and … Choose to … EXPRESS …
When I write a … ” Poem ” …

I’m …..
MUCH MORE …. Relaxed ……………………………………….
Than A Cat … Who’s … ” Laid Back ” …

IN FACT …
I’m … ” So Cool ” …

WELL SCHOOLED …
and ….. So Shrewd ….

That MY WORDS ….
FRIGHTEN Jerks … !!!!!

and ….
DIRTIES … Their Shirts … !!!!!

I REJECT………………………………………….The ABSURD … !!!

So am … QUICK TO … Defer …

Meeting Humans … whose views …
and Visions … Are … Blxurrrrrrreeeedddd … !!!!!

I’d Rather … ” Confer ” …
with those who … PREFER …
To INDULGE in … REASON …
and … “WISDOM FILLED” … Words … !!!

While Most …
NOW Appear …

To …
RATHER NOT ……………………………………………. hear … !!!

ANYTHING …
That … CONFIRMS …
Their … DEEPEST … of … Fears … !!!!!

ESPECIALLY if …
What is …. BLUrrrRRED ….

Becomes … CLEAR …

FEAR … Rules MUCH …
“Within” … Humans …

And Leaves …
Some … STUCK … !!!
With … NOWHERE TO RUN … !!!!!

Well REALITY … IS …
The … ” Spice of Life ” …
And RIGHT NOW … Has …

A … NASTY BITE … !!!!! …

Which is WHY I Write …
The Things … I Write …
Through … Simple Rhymes …
Kind of Like … THAT GUY …
Whose Face is … FELINE … !!!

But MY … ” Poetic Style ” …
Has It’s … OWN DESIGN … !!!!!

That’s … NOT CONFINED …
By FEAR … or … Pride …

So …..
WHATEVER … The Box …

I’m … WAY OUTSIDE … !!!!
And That’s A … FACT … !!!!!

So Remember This … ” Jack ” .. !!!

” I’m The Cat …

“Why are you being … Such A Sphincter ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 24/8/2006

I was with a …. female friend
when our conversation … led …

to ……
” Condescending Sinners ” … !!!
who are … CLEARLY …
…. ” Walking Sphincters ” …. !!!!!

Those who … THINK … ?
Their SHIT … DON”T STINK … ?!?!?

and think their views …
are … “Ever so” … COOL … !!!

which of course … Allows Them …
to … Talk Down … to you … ?!? …

Now ….
If you don’t know … ?
what a … ” Sphincter ” … is … ?

It’s a muscle that’s … shaped …
Kind of like …. ” A Ring ” ….

Like the one that … OPENS …
when you’ve … got to … GO … !!!!!

or in other words …
what we call … ” AN ASSHOLE ” … !!!!!

Now …
You know … ” The Type ” … !!!
about whom … I write …

Those who …
Talk to you …
Whilst looking down …

“Their Nose” … !!!

“Ignorant Clowns” …
who should …..
Keep their mouths …

….. “Closed” …… !!!!!!!

I’ve seen them come …
I’ve seen them … ” GO ” …

Many of … “THEM” …
Claim to … ” Write Prose ” …
and … some of them … “attempt” …
to host …. ” Live Shows ” ….. !!! …..

“Spoken Word”
or … ” Radio ” … ?

Many of them …
Really Should … STAY HOME … !!!!!

Instead of making …
” Ridiculous ” … quotes … !?!
That Clearly … SHOWS …
What’s Up … ” Their Nose ” … !!!!!

TV’s …. The Same …. !!!

because of … ” FAME ” … !!!!!

These people … ” THINK ” …
They’re … ” Oh So Slick ” … !!!!!
when clearly … they’re …

” The Weakest Link ” … !!!!!

Come on now folks … !!!

Haven’t you had enough ?!?
of … ” Sphincter Clowns ” … !!!
whose noses are … BROWN … !!!

They’re Clearly … SICK … !!!
because they … ” Lick ” …
THAT … ” Anal Hole ” … !!!!!!!

Where …
SHIT … comes out … !!!!!

Now ….
Captain Kirk and his crew …
May Be ….. ” Quite Bold ” ….. !!!

But …
That’s a … ” Black hole ” …
They Won’t … Boldly Go … !!!!!

YES …..
That’s a … JOKE … !!!
but … Trust Me … folks …

” Human ” … sphincters …
have sold … Their Souls … !!!

Let those words … SOAK …
Beyond … The Sphincter …
You call … Your Throat …

Who … do you know ?
who … Acts like … this … ?

Men that … “snitch” … ?
or … Women who … “Bitch” … ?

We all know … ONE … !!!
who lives by … “Tricks” …
and think that … THEY …
are … ” Oh So GREAT !!! ” …

or …. ” Intellectuals ” ….
who think they’re … COOL …
because they’ve been …
” To ” ….. Festivals …..

Where … Hip Hop played …
and they heard … Reggae …

“I say, I say !!!
Have you heard, that tune ?!?
by those two, coloured youths ?
They were so good
that i’m, down with the hood !!!”

Now ….
Replies like … THIS …
tend to leave them …
… ” Flustered ” …

“You said that, they were,
coloured, could you be,
more exact, were they
Green, Pink or Yellow ?
or, are you saying ?
They were black ?”

“So now, you’re down !
with the hood !!!
Don’t you live in ?
St. John’s wood !?!
In actual fact,
don’t you have,
another flat ?
Somewhere in, Upper Sheen
A place where, coloured people
are rarely ever, seen, unless
they’re there, to clean !!!?!!!”

These people live in …
……. ” Dreams ” …….
in … ” Comfort Zones ”
with ….. MEANS ……

A stash of cash …
that could buy …
Ki’s of … “GREEN” … !!!!!
YES … Ki’s … of weed … !!!
Enough to … FEED …

Drug families … !!!
Right here and … Overseas … !!?!!

Trust me … ” BELIEVE ”
Rich People … aren’t …
all … ” Squeaky Clean ” … !!!!!

That’s why …
” STRAIGHT SPEAK ”
Makes them …
” Feel WEAK ” … !!!!!

When my friend and I
sat and … “Analysed”

I said to her ….

“These human sphincters
make me sick !!!
I’ll write a script
that, lyrically flips,
and sheds some light,
on these, Bourgeois Types,
who think they’re right
whether day or night,
because they’re living,
life alright !!!!!”

“They” … aren’t afraid …
of more … price HIKES …
because their father,
sets the price !!!

To Ensure … that he …
gets a …. ” BIG SLICE ” …. !!!!!

to pay for his home …
In The … ” Countryside ” …

“His” … Second Home … !!!
Oh Yes …. That’s Right …. !!!!!
and the … ” Four by Four ” …
for his … ” Greedy Wife ” …
who cannot drive … but …
Wants the car because …
It’s Price is … ” HIGH ” … !!?!!

These people live …
A … DIFFERENT … life …

Then … talk to us like
We … DON”T HAVE … a mind !!!

But …..
What about … “Those” … ?
who are … EVEN WORSE … !!!!!

” Bourgeoise ” … WANNABEES … ??!??
who … Try to be … like …

…. ” The Bourgeoisie ” ….

when they live at …. Number 9
down the … ” Very Next Street ” … !?!

Living in …. DEBT
Like … everyone else … ?!?

ALL SHOW … !!!
and … NO TELL … ???

with their nose … “In The Air”
cos’ they … Don’t Like …

……. ” The Smell ” ……..

of … their own …
” Fake Lives ” …
and their … ” Fake Insights ” …

The Only Time …
They’re … NOT FAKE …
is when … THEY LIE … !!!!!

Take a minute and … THINK …

Then …
Rewind that line
Inside ….. Your Mind ….. !!!

The lives … they lead …
are so … ” CONTRIVED ” …

That’s why …
They Don’t Like …
The words I write …

“Condescending” … Termites …
Well …. ” REALITY BITES ” ….
and as time …. ” Flies ” ….

They may just find … ???
That thoughts they … “TRUST”
May leave them … ” STUCK ” … !!!!!

and … Those of them …
who live life … ” Blinkered ”

WILL …. Fall Foul of ….
Those of us … Who Are …

….. ” THINKERS ” ….. !!!!!!!!!

Who …
Look at them thinking …

“Why are you being
Such a SPHINCTER !?! “
