” 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 …

IN …… The Hat ….. !!!

But I am …
a Cool Dude …
Who’s … Searching for … FACTS …

to … IMPROVE My View …
of what’s … ” Called ” … THE TRUTH … ?!?

THE TRUTH … About …

” The World ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” Girls ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” Life ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” WHY ” … ???

Some FORSAKE … What’s RIGHT … ?!?!?

So …
What is … WRONG … ?

And …
What is … RIGHT … ?

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

So does anyone … CARE … ???
and are we … ” Prepared ” … !?!

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

Do You ….
Think that your … STRONG … ?

Or …..
Think that your … weak … ?!?

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 ….
Does it Look … ” BLEAK ” … !?!

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” …

What’s REAL …
From THEMSELVES … !?!

Is that what comes … ?
From … Financial Wealth … !?!

Now ….
Knowledge of … ” SELF ” …
Leaves Many … UNWELL … !!!

” Dark Moods ” …
And … ” ISSUES ” …

Because Many … REFUSE … !!!!!

To Accept …
What is … TRUE …

I Wonder … ?
I DO … !!! …

But …..
What About … YOU … ???

Do You …
Have The Time …
To … OBSERVE … The Signs … ?

These Days …
Most Now … DON’T …

And …
That is … NO JOKE … !!!!!

Do You Ever … ” Kick Back ” …
Like The … ” Cat In The Hat ” … ?

Well I’m … NOT That Chap … !!!

But DO …
FILL My … Notepad …

Like … SHAZAAM’ …
Just Like That … !!! …

With Wordplay that … ” Maps ” …
Ways … OUT OF … ” Badlands …………………………………..

CONTROLLED …..
By … ” Those mans’ ” …

Who …
Like To Set … “TRAPS” … !!!

My …
Well Written … Text …

And …
Will to … EXPRESS …

OFFENDS and UPSETS …

” Those ” … Ladies and Gents …
Who … “EMBRACE” … Governments … !?!

So …
Let me … Just Ask You …

Are YOU …
One of Them … ???

Well ….
I’ve … Come to … EXPECT …
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 …
WITHOUT … The Hat … !!! “

” Apocalyptic Times ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 31/7/2007

This Poem seems rather appropriate right now !

As I am currently residing in the Caribbean, these words are RINGING …
A Little TOO TRUE ….. Sadly …. !!!!

These rhymes … Reflect …
APOCALYPTIC Times … !!!

Times where minds …
are …………… Dismissing ………………………………………….. Signs …… !!!!!

That times ahead …..
Will see … BLOODSHED …
and … Loss of Life … !!!!! …

Times where … Crimes …
Refine … Bloodlines … !!!!!!

Like … ” Old Designs ” …
Primed to … ” Div-id-e ” …

Apocalyptic … times …
Reside inside …
Deep Seas with … ” Tides ” …
Now On … The rISE …
Just like … The Minds …
of … WICKED … Types … !!!!!!
whose Pride … DENIES …
to help the … ” Plight ” …
of those who … STRIVE …
Just to … ” Survive ” …
and Live a … ” Good Life ” …

The Type … who like …
to see us … Fight …
Like … ” Dogs in Bogs ” …
Fed On … WAR Songs …
and Words of … HATE … !?!

A Time and Place …
where … Technological Tools …
are used to … School …
our youth to … Abuse …
Like … VIOLENT Fools … !!!!!

VIOLENCE … Will Rule … !!!

Like DEVILS … Who …
Infuse with … Views …
That … Lead to … FEUDS … !!!

Which would … You Choose … ?!?

APOCALYPTIC … News … ?
or a place where … ” Love ” …

REIGNED … Up Above … !!!!!!

Just like … SUNSHINE …
in the … ” Summertime ” …

Well ….
Rhymes Like … ” These ” …
Paint … Different … scenes …

Scenes … OBSCENE … !!!!!
and ……. Far From …………………………………………………Clean … !!!!

Where ….
Peoples’ Dreams …
are … “FILLED WITH” … SCREAMS … !!!

Am I …. SCARING You … ?!?

If so … Not Cool … !!!

Why would you choose … ?
to take … The View …
That … What I Say …
Makes You … AFRAID … ?!?!?

Apocalyptic Trips …
May Well …. ECLIPSE … !!!

The Place in which …

Your Thinking ….. ” Lives ” ……

OUTSIDE … “TheBox” …
is where … Mine Is … !!!!!!

NOT IN …. ” Laptops ” ….
or …. VIOLENT … Stings … !!!

I Deal with … NOW …
and what … Surrounds …
Before i’m … CLOWNED …
and end up … “Drowned” … !!!!!

Or …
Worse yet … DEAD …
Like … Youthful Heads …
As … ” Current Trends ” …
would now … ” Suggest ” …

In Fact …. CONFIRM …. !!!!!!

Does it make you …
…….. ” Squirm …….. ? ”
to Read … Such words … !?! …

Well …….

Here’s a … ” Verse ” …
to … CALM … Your Nerves … !!!

They’re ONLY … ” Words ” … !!!!!!

That show … CONCERN …
About the world …
and how … it turns …

If we … ” Observe ” …
We may just … ” Learn ” …
How to … STEM This … SURGE … !!!
of Pain and … Hurt … !!!!!!

and make a … RETURN …
to Life being … PRESERVED … !!!!!

Let The DEVILS … Burn ……………………………………………….

and Make … PEACE WORK … !!!!!

Like … UNITY …
cos’ things like … ” These ” …
Will Help … ” Relieve ” ……………………………

Our Streets of … BEASTS … !!!
And …. ” POVERTY ” ….

And …. News Stories …
of … KILLING Sprees … !!!?!!!

Our Youth … are DYING …

Don’t You … SEE … ?!!!? …

These words are … TRYING …
to FEED … Our Seeds …
with … Something MORE …
Than ……. ” MTV ” …….. !!!!!!!!!!

BUT ….
Here’s The … SCORE … !!!

Too Many … ” Elders ” … TOO … !?!
are PROMOTING …. Wars ……
WITHOUT …. A Cause …. !!!?!!!

and NEED TO … ” Reduce ” …
Their … ANGRY … Moods … !!!

” Don’t try to front ! ”

” You know it’s true ! ”

Why take the view
that I’m … TOO BLUNT … ?!?

The time has … COME …
to …. ” Listen Up ” ……
and Fill …. ” Eardrums ” …
Like Kweli’ … Does … !!!

with words that … ” Soothe ” …………………….
and HELP … ” Improve ” …
The Minds who … ” Choose ” …

APOCALYPTIC … Moves … !!!!!

Like …
Dropping …. BOMBS …
That Breed … ” Phantoms ” …
and …. ” Tsunamis ” …. !!! ….

Do you ….
Get The …. ” Scene ” …. ???

NO TREES ….
NO LEAVES ….

NO …
Ice Caps left ….

Just …. WAR and DEATH … !!!!!

I Guess …. ?
to … ” Most of You ” …

This seems ……………………………………………………. ” Far Fetched ” ……

But …
THINK IT …. Through ……

What’s coming …. ” Next ” …. ?!?

FLOODING … Here …
and Flooding … THERE … !!!!

and then …. HEATWAVES …. !!!
that send … SHOCKWAVES … !!!

As Fires … BLAZE …
For …. DAYS and DAYS …. !!!!!

APOCALYPTIC …. Yes … !!!

So ….
What do you say … ?

Does THIS Poem …
and it’s … Wordplay …
Make … You Think …

I NEED A … ” Shrink ” … ?!?

Maybe … I DO … ???

But here’s the … ” Koo’ ” …

Apocalyptic things ….
ARE …… Happening …… !!!!!

CLOSER … to home …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!!!

Most folk … are BROKE … !!!
Or … SNORTING … Coc’ … !!!

With ….
NOWHERE … to go …
to find some … ” Hope ” … !!!

” OH I’M A PESSIMIST ! ”

” If You Insist ! ”

I’m simply …

writing things …
Through … ” Poetic Scripts ” …

That … Reflect how …

I Feel …
Right NOW …

Some Music … ” FILLED ” ……..
My Mind with …. THIS ….

Thoughts of … GLOOM …
and MUCH … “Darkness” … !!!!!

A … ” Discreet Flava ” …
DARKER THAN … ” Vader ” … !!!

Try to …. DENY …
and you … ” May Find ” …

That ….
What You … FIGHT …
Inside … ” Your Mind ” …

is the ….

TRUTH About ………
What’s ….. Coming …..

” Apocalyptic Times “
