” 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 “

Fa’ REAL … “What You Waiting For !?!” … A Poem written by Big Virge 8/10/2006

Listen Man … !!!!!
“What you waiting for ?!?”

A Housewife and Mother …
who acts like a … ” WHORE ” … !?!

Good Luck with that man !!!

If you find one like … THAT … !!!
Trust me … She’s … ” Unique ” … !!!

A … ” Sexy Ass ” … FREAK ..
Who’s … Happy to … ” Clean ” …

Then … get in the kitchen …
and cook … ” Happily ” …
Then act like a … SLUT …
in a ….. ” Porn DVD ” …… !!!!!

If you’re waiting for … “Her” …
to just …. ” Come Along ” ….
I have to …. ” Infer ” ….
that your hopes are ….

… ” Quite Wrong ” … !!!!!

It’s …
One or … The Other …
That …. you’ll get ….
… ” My Brother ” … !!!!!!!

But …
If you are … ” Lucky ” … !!!
Two … Out of … Three …
is a … Pretty Good … Deal … !!!

Why wait for …

” A Dream “… !!!

that will … NEVER …
… Be … ” REAL ” … !?!

You may wait …
… ” FOREVER ” … !!!
and that’s not so …
… ” CLEVER ” … !!!!!!!

This is the …

” REAL WORLD ” … !!!!!

Where … women and girls …
are making things … ” Tough ” …
for men to find …. ” Love ” ….

Now Don’t ….
Get it … ” Confused ” … !?!

There still are … ” A Few ” … !!!
who TRULY … are … ” Cool ” … !!!

But …
” Trust ” … in this man … !!!
Most Women … Now Choose …
to live in ….. ” Wonderland ” ….. ?!!!?

Just like …. ” Alice ” …

Confused and Bemused … ???

with … All kinds of …
…. ” BAGGAGE ” …. !!!!!

On Drugs that cause ….
…. ” DAMAGE ” …. !!!!!!!!

These days ….
They’re … CLEARLY … !!!
Felling … ” Malice ” … !!!

and driving men to …
” Smoke Di Chalice ” …

Filled with … CRACK … !!!

Down The Pipe … !!!
To … The Point …
Where they’ll ….
” TAKE LIFE ” …. !!!!!

Now …
That’s … NOT RIGHT … !!!!!

” Taking Life ” …
Through … SUICIDE … !!!!!

Not just … ” Their Own ” … !!!
Nowadays … Some Children …
Have … No Guides … !!!!! …

because of …..
” Jealousy ” …
and … ” Pride ” … !!!!!

Now girlfriends … DIE … !!!
and … EVEN … Wives … !!!

because of … men …
who’ve … LOST … Their Minds … !!!!!

LOST …
Their … ” Patience ” … !!!
or …. ” Their Child ” …. !!!

“Come on now man !
What you waiting for ?”

You KNOW … The Score … !!!
Don’t wait for a … ” WHORE ” … !!!!!

Try …
Waiting for a … Girl … !!!
who’s got … much more … !!!!!

Like ….. LOVE ….. !!!
to … Help You …
“Stay On” … Course … !!!!!

and …
Find a … LOVE …
That’s … RICH … !!!
NOT … ” Poor ” … !!!

Now …
Hold on a minute … !!!

Let me ask you … THIS …

“Young Lady,
What you waiting for ?
Are you waiting for him ?
to be a man,
instead of a kid !?!”

Let me … Quickly …
Balance … my script …

Now …
If he treats you …
Like a … ” Bitch ” …

What you waiting for ?
Get … RID of … Him … !?!

Don’t … wait for a time … !!!
when you … start to find …
that he makes you … Frown … !!!
instead of … ” Smile ” ….

Or …
EVEN WORSE … !!!

Wait for him to say …

“I’m sorry, I
punched you,
In you face !
I was angry babe,
it won’t happen again !”

cos’ that’s … NOT OKAY … !!!
and is … Bound to … HURT … !!!

If your man is … ” The Type ” …
to … ” Smash Up ” … Your Face …

Just because …
He can’t … have … ” His Way ” …
and you find … you can’t take …
his ways … ” ANYMORE ” … !!! …

Walk Out …
The Front Door …

“What you waiting for !?!”

I Know… it’s … HARD … !!!!!
to just ….. ” Walk Away ” …..

In …..
ACTUAL FACT …

That’s …
Not quite … TRUE … !!!

If something …
” Feels Wrong ” …

THAT’S IT …
I’m … GONE … !!!!!

No … ” Playing Games ” … !!!
or … ” Calling Names ” … !!!!!!

When all’s …
Said and Done …

What’s the point of that … !?!?!

I Must be … DUMB …
or the … ” Only One ” … !!!
to believe that … Things …
“Should Be” … More Fun … !!!!!

I guess that’s down to …
” Governments ” … ?!?
The … ” Media ” …
and how they’re … RUN … !?!

“Promotion” … of … WAR … ?!?
and …. ” Other Stuff ” ….
is …. ” Making Us ” ….

…. ” Not ” ….
Want To … LOVE … !!!!!

What are … Your Thoughts … ?
Do you stand for … ” LOVE ” … ?
or … Want … MORE WARS … !??!??!

From …
Religious Fights …
Home and … ” Abroad ” …
to … ” Oil Pipelines ” …
for … ” Good Ol’ George ” … !!!

“So Many” … LIES … !!!!!
while soldiers … ” Die ” …

That’s …
Their … ” CHOICE ” … !!!
So … Should I … ” Cry ” … ?!? …

They have …
” Their Cause ” …
and … So Do … I … !!!

To … ” Elevate Minds ” …
Who … “ignore” … SIGNS …

That …
ALL THESE WARS … !!

Need to … STOP …
…. ” For Sure ” …. !!!!!

If you want to see … MORE …
than … Violence … ” SOAR ” … !!!!!

Like a world of …
… ” Happiness ” …

….. ” For ” …..
” One and ALL ” … !!!!!

Do …..
“Your Bit” … NOW … !!!!!

” What You Waiting For ? “

“Is It Such A Crime ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/3/2006

Is it … ” Such a Crime ” … ?
to … ” Speak Your Mind ” … ?

Because ….

it … Seems to be …
if you’re … NOT WHITE …

I hear this, said …
So Many … times … !!!

“Virge, you scare folks !
with words you rhyme !”

and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

but … words I … “Quote” …
are … NOT … The Type … !!!

to … ” Start A Fight ” … !!! …

but may … ” Unsettle ” … ?!?
Those who … ” Settle ” …
to … “hide” … behind …
A … “LIE FILLED” … life … !!!

Can Someone … DEFINE … ?
Why it’s …. ” Such A Crime ” …. ?
to ….. ” Criticize ” ……
…. ” Political ” …. types …. !?!

In times like … THESE …

” FREEDOM ” … of … SPEECH …
is … NEEDED … just like poetry … !!!

if we’re to … ” Ease ‘ …
” Pain and Misery ” … !!! …
and crimes of … More …

… FATAL DESIGNS … !!!!!

“Murders” … “Rapes” … !!!
Crimes … based on … Race … !!!
and Crimes … Inclined …
To Keep … ” The Masses ” …

…………. “blind” ………….

Like Those … in … ” Folds ” …
who make ….. Mistakes …..

Do THEY … ” Pay A Toll ” … ?
for … CASH … THEY TAKE …

” Mistakes ” …
THEY SAY …… !!!

That …..
Pay for … ” Homes ” … ?!?

“It was merely, a loan,
from a chap I know !
No more questions now,
i’ve got to go !!!”

“A chap you know ?!?
can’t we know his name !?!”

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,
that, friends of mine,
help out, in times
of financial strain !?!”

“Of course not sir !
but don’t divert,
what is his name ?
and did he donate ?
to your friends campaign ?
Need I ask you again !?!
the question is
what is his name ???
Let me make it plain !
Are you quite sure
he hasn’t bought
A Peerage, and,
is now a lord ?”

“I will not answer
any more ! What
do you take, politicians for ?
Anyone would think,
our dealings, stink !”

“Well, no more than
a poor street whore
is it such a crime
to want to know more ?”

Could this be why
Government guidelines
are trying to stem
peoples’ questions !?!

If …..
Free Speech … ” Ends ” …

What’ll happen to … THEM … ???
and ……. ALL THEIR …….
” Pre-Planned ” … arguments … ?!?

It seems that … THEY …
will …. carry on ….
Airing …. views ….
Even if … They’re wrong … !?!

Isn’t that … A Crime … !???!

It would seem … NOT … !!!

So …..
How can it be a … ” Crime ” …
to …. ” Speak Your Mind ” …. ?!?

Especially when ….
You’re Proven … RIGHT … !!!

I find this … ATTITUDE …
at …. ” Poetry Nights ” …. ?!?

if you speak about … ” Your Life ” …
that seems to be …. FINE …. !!!!! ….

Or Express … FRUSTRATION … !!!
at the … State of The … NATION … !!!

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …
and they make folks …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …
and make … ” Attacks ” …

On Racists … or …
On … Western Plans …

You’re treated like …
An ….. ALIEN …… !!!!!

It must be … A Crime …
to be a ….. BLACK MAN ….. !???!

Especially when ….
you have … A MIND … !!!!!

Inclined to … WRITE …
” Poetic Rhymes ” …
that spread … ” Insight ” …

” But, SOME BLACKS DO !!! ”

“Well, if that’s true,
let me ask you who
Mr. Zephaniah ???
Okay, that’s one !
But, he’s spent time,
inside prison !!!”
I’m talking about
a black without
a history, of
dodgy deeds !!!”

I think you’ll find … ?
THAT MAN … is … ME … !!!

NO … Prison Time … !!!
has … Big Virge … SEEN … !!!

But ….
May Well … do … !!! ? !!!
for words I speak …

Even when …
My Record’s … CLEAN … !!?!!

Well ….
Clean … ENOUGH … !!!

I … HAVE BEEN …
…. ” Cuffed ” …. !!!!!
for … ” Slapping a girl ” …
For … DISRESPECTING … !!!

……… MY MUM …….. !!!!!

and ….. ” Driving Drunk ” ……

But ….

Both … ” Misdemeanours ” …
were … just the … ONCE … !!!!!
and like …. ” Benjamin ” ….
were when … I was … YOUNG … !!!!!

But …
The Point … i’m trying to make …
is … Black … ” Americans ” …
are … Deemed to be … GREAT … !!!!!

For …
Taking a … STANCE …
Against … ” Racial ” … HATE … !!!!!

WHICH … ” English Black ” … ?!!!? …
Can … Make The Claim … THAT …

They’ve Gained … RESPECT … !!!
for … Taking … THAT STANCE … !?!

What does that say … ?
about those who … CLAIM … !!!

THAT …….

“Blacks are treated,
JUST THE SAME !!!
as every other race,
on, English Shores !!!”

“Are THEY, QUITE SURE ?!!!?”

I’m NO … Malcolm X … !!!
But … DO HAVE … ” A Cause ” … !!!

My cause … ” DEPLORES ” … !!!!!!!
These … ” Government Laws ” …

cos’ … if you’re …
Black and … POOR …
You’re gonna …
SUFFER … for SURE … !!!!!

Even if …. You’re … NOT …
Police now …. “Plot” ….
to … ” Shoot You Down ” … !!!!!

or … Question you … ?
Even if … ” They Doubt ” …

THAT … You … ” ARE ” …
“THAT” … ” Drug Dealer ” … !?!

OR ……. ” The One ” ……..
who STOLE … ” That Car ” … !!!!!

Laws They … PASS …
are now … ” Pure Farce ” … !!!!

It seems … they’ve moved …
But …. NOT TOO FAR …. !!!!!!!

Away … from keeping …
Us ……….. Apart ……….

Ask Yourself … WHY … ???
are They … ” Inclined ” …. ?

to … “RESTRICT” … those …
Who … EXPOSE … Lies … ?!? …

” Creatively ” …
or … ” Otherwise ” …

Through …..
Simply Saying ….
What’s IN … ” Their Mind ” … !?!

PLEASE …..
ask yourself … ” WHY ” … ?

” Is It Such A Crime ? ”
