“What Can You Do ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/11/2005

Ya know …..

This is a question ….
that leaves me …
… ” Confused ” … ???

The question is …
…… ” THIS ” ……..
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Now …
Trust me folks …
i’m not here to … Abuse … !!!

But ….
Come On Now … !!!
Don’t Act … ” The Fool ” … !!!!!

Don’t be … ” SURPRISED … !!!
When … ” Drug Filled Highs ” … !!!
slowly …………….. “subside” ………..

and … ” Modern Life ” …
Leaves you … ” Feeling ” …

…. ” Pain and Strife ” …. !!!

It Seems … these days … ?
that … riSING Tides …
and … Government LIES … !!!!!
have made … “Some People” …

………. ” REALISE ” ……… !!!!!!!!!!

Life is …
NOT About … Mad Cash … !!!
Cocaine, Speed,
or … Afghan Hash … !!!

Life is … So Much …
MORE … Than That … !!!

So ask yourself … ?

What can you do … ?
to … BETTER … things …
for … ME … and … YOU … !!!

” Going ” …
to … school …
is … Many’s View …

OK … that’s cool … !!!
but … WHO … has built …
These … “INSTITUTES” … ??!??

of … ” Education ” …
” Government Taxation ” … ???

Take … ” Your Time ” …
it’s NOT … A Crime …
to let these thoughts
run through … Your Mind …

How many youth ?
will get the chance …
to dance … The Dance …

THAT … ” Rich Kids ” … do … !?!
while watching … ” Daddy ” …
“FILL” … His … ” Boots ” … !!!!!!

It’s just a … Question … ?
like …….. ” This One ” …

What can you do … ?

How about this … ?
Don’t Live … for … YOU … !!!!

Live for … Those …
Who … Surround You …

These days …
That’s … HARD … !!!
I know … That’s True …

But …
Here’s a … Quote …
to give you … ” Clues ” …
on … How to … CHANGE …
These …. ATTITUDES …. !!!!

The needs of …
THE MANY …. !!!!!

“OUTWEIGH” … !!!
The Needs …
of …. The Few ….
or … THE ONE …. !!!

Take that … IN …
Don’t spit … but … CHEW … !!!!!

These words make …
Me … Want To … DO …
things like … REASON …
with our … ” Youth ” … !!!

NOT …..
Preach or Train
but … try to … Explain …
How to …. KEEP …. !!!
A … ” Sense-Filled ” … Brain … !!!

and …
How to … COPE …
with … ” Mental Pain ” …
and let them … Know …
Life’s … NOT … A Game … !!!

It’s … HARD … these days …
To Make … That Move …
because … BUREAUCRATS … !!!
Try … “Stopping” … you …

That’s the … way ..
They … Like to be …

But …
TRUST ME … folks … !!!
They WON’T … Stop Me … !!!!!

from …
Trying to use …
My Poetry …
to get to … ” The Few ” …
Who … HEED … My Speech …

So ….. ?
What about … YOU … ???
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Try Being … TRUE … !!!
With Friends and People …
You … Speak to …

That’s … just the … START … !!!!!

because change won’t come …
from … ” Smart Remarks ” … !!!!!

While you sit …
in your … ” Phat Yard ” … !!!!!

Those who … do this ..
” Think ” … They’re Smart … !!!!!

Until … Their World …
is … ” RIPPED ” … apart … !!!!!

Nowadays ….
in … Many Ways … !!!

Natures’ ANGER’S …
On … DISPLAY … !!!!

Earthquakes … and …
WILD … Hurricanes … !!!!!

See ….
These are things …
WE CAN’T … ignore … !!!!!

Money Wars … !!!
leave people … ” POOR ” … !!!!!

While people … sit …
and now … ARGUE …

Come on man … !!!
What Can You Do … !?!

NOT … Everyone …
is BAD … out there … !!!

But …
HEAR ME … CLOSE …
Please be … PREPARED … !!!!!

because snakes …
are … “lurking” …
and will … DARE …
to … Threaten You …
and make you … SCARED … !!!!!

So …
Don’t just let them … !!!
Do … YOUR SHARE …. !!!

and show the … Moaners …
That …… YOU CARE …….
and want … RID OF …

” New Tony Blairs !!! ” …

The only thing … constant …
is simply …. ” CHANGE ” ….

So ….
Don’t just sit there …
…. ” RE-ARRANGE ” ….

and make …
” Our World ” …
A … BETTER PLACE … !!!!!

Just …
REMEMBER … Folks …

These are …
” MY VIEWS ” …

So … take them … IN …
I’ve given … ” Clues ” …
and answers …. TOO …. !!!!

to … YES …
THAT … Question …

” What Can You Do ? “

“Outspoken” … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/11/2005

Wow, people are happy to run theirs, but, when you run yours, all of a sudden, you’re out of line and have … GONE TOO FAR …. ?!?

Well, just for them … !!!!!

Folks ….
People … ” Aren’t Joking ” … !!!
when they say i’m ……

….. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!

Sometimes …
I say things …
that leave people …
… ” Broken ” … !!!!!!!!

Some people have … ” cried ”
because of the way …
I speak about … ” Life ”

“Suffering” … “Pain” … and …
Dealing with …. ” Strife ” …. !!!

But ….
Things that I say …
are … ” Simple Reflections ” …
on things … in my sight …

Sometimes they are … ” WRONG ” … !!!
Sometimes they are …. ” RIGHT ” …. !!!!!

But ….
Speaking my mind
should not be a … ” Crime ” … !!!!!

My words are … ” Designed ”
to … ” Simply ” … ” Invite ” …
A place within … ” Darkness ” …
where … ” CLARITY SHINES ” … !!!!!
and … LIGHT … is … DEFINED … !!!!!

Words I now … write …
are simply … Inclined …
to … ” Lyrically Dine ” …
recline and be … ” Primed ”

to do … what is … ” WISE ”
and pay … ” CLOSE ATTENTION ” … !!!
to …. ” REALITY’S ” … Signs … !!!

On … How To Live …
A … ” POSITIVE LIFE ” … !!!!!

I’d rather … DO THAT … !!!
than live life to … Fight … ?!?

I’m NOT … in a rush …
to lay down and … DIE … !!!!!

Since I was a kid …
I’ve always been quick …
to air … My Opinions …
and speak about … things …

I LOVE TO … Enlist … !!!
The use of … ” EXPRESSION ”
It’s … CLEARLY … A Gift … !!!
and now an … ” OBSESSION ” … !!!!!

Poems … KEEP COMING … !!!
just like a … ” PROCESSION ” … !!!!!

But some … Do Not Like … !!!
The words I … ” Recite ” … !!!
and don’t like the sight …
of … My Lips … by a mic … !!!!!

But Hey …
That’s Okay … !!!

They … REALLY … Miss Out …
at the … End of the day … !!! …

My Wordplay … has …
….. ” SUBSTANCE ” …..

“EVEN” ……
when I … RAGE … !!!!!

But … NEVER … indulges …
in … ” Inciting ” … HATE … !!!!!!

But ….
CLEARLY … reflects …
My Mood … when … IRATE … !!!!!

But …..
My Moods …
Like … The Weather …
Show … CHANGE …
… ” Everyday ” … !!!!!

I can’t be the same
and always be … ” TAME ”

Those who want that …
Like … ” Controlling Brains ” … !!!!!

and clearly … are people …
who … NEED TO … REFRAIN … !!!!!!!
from trying to …. ” LIMIT ” ….
what people …. ” Should Say ” …. !!!

We Need to be … ” Mindful ” …
of those who … Relay …
A message that … ” Glorifies ”
….. ” Deviant ” …. ways …. !!!!!!

Those who … ” Spread Hate ”
and … ” Murderous Traits ”

SHOULD BE … !!!
LOCKED AWAY … !!!!!

But …
That’s just … “My View” …
at the …. end of the day …. !!!

Freedom of Speech …
is … ” BEAUTY ” … to me … !!!

NOT … Trying to Teach … !!!
or … Trying to Preach … !!!

We … ALL … have a mouth
I’d rather use … ” SPEECH ” … !!!
than … ” Physical Clouts ” …
“That” … Knock People … Down … !!!!!

“Brainpower” …. FEEDS ….
Off … wordplay that … ” Speaks ”
to … ” Souls Within People ” …
who choose … NOT TO SEE … !!!!!

A world where we … STOP …
Our … ” Freedom of Speech ” …

“Music” … is … SO GREAT …
when … ” Wordplay ” … Relates …
A Feeling … that … ” TOUCHES ” …
and … ” Sensually ” … Clutches …
” Something ” …. ” Deep Inside ” … !!!
And … ” Helps Pain ” … subside … !!!!!

This is …. One Reason ….
I Now … LOVE TO WRITE … !!!!!

because my … ” Expression ”
HELPS … ” Channel Aggression ”
and helps me to … ” STRENGTHEN ”
My use of …. ” Expression ” ….

My … ” OUTSPOKEN ” … Nature
Has … brought me …
My … ” Troubles ” … !!!!!

But …
Has been …. ” My Saviour ” …. !!!
and keeps me from … ” FORCES ”
” DARKER ” … than … Vader’s … !!!
GREEN … is the colour …
of YES … ” My Light Sabre ” … !!!!!

GREEN … as in … ” Country ”
where … Animals Roam …
“Expressing” … themselves …
in …. ” EVERY ” …. Zone ….

We sit and … Watch Them …
when they use … ” Expression ”
and … CANNOT DEFEND …

” The Vision ” … of them …
Behind … A Zoo Fence … !!!

Don’t get it … ” Confused ”
I’m simply … Suggesting …
That … Airing Our Views …
is … ” SURELY ” … A Thing …
We should … NOT REFUSE … !!!

“EVEN” … when people …
say things … That Abuse … !!!

because you then … KNOW …
if you …. Can Be … COOL …

and … Even if … NOT …
may help you to … Choose …

A … ” Positive Way ” …
to … RESOLVE … Your Issues … !!!

“Being” … OUTSPOKEN …
is NOT … Always Good … !!!!!

But ….
Does … Help a person …
to … give you … ” Some Clues ”
on what … Fuels … Their Mood …
and … May … Give you … PROOF …
of what … They’re Into …

I Now … Prefer … THAT … !!!
than being with … ” Those ” …
who simply …. ” Sit Back ” …. !!!
and wait for the ….. Chance …..
to make … an … ” ATTACK ” … !!!!!

What is it … THEY LACK … ?
That … Makes them … DO THAT … ?!?

Some folks are … like this …
and that’s just a … FACT … !!!!!

These are the … people …

Whose words i’m now …
….. ” Quoting ” …..

and NO …
I’m NOT … JOKING … !!!!!

These are the people ….
who say …. ” Virgil’s ” ….

…. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!!!!

As a follow up to …. “Be Careful With Them !” …. “Opinions”, a poem written by Big Virge 27/06/05

Now …. YOU MUST ….
Know … The saying …

“Opinions and Assholes,
are one and the same !!!”

Everyone’s … got one … !!!
Even if …. They are … LAME … !!!!!

Now … If this is … TRUE … ?!?

I think I should … ” Share ” …
” My Opinions ” … with you …

I’m just a …..
… ” Cool Dude ” …
……. with a ……..
” Bass Driven … drool …

who likes to write poetry
based on … ” The Truth ” … !!!!!

I’m Sorry … if this …
….. Doesn’t …..
” Entertain ” … you … !!!

But … ” Entertainment ” …
is … NOT … what I do … !!!!!

I’m … NOT … A …
… ” Stage Clown ” … !!!
Like … poets on … stages …
Across …. ” Different Towns ” ….

I’m Sorry … IF …
things I say …..
May … get you … ” Down ” …
or … Don’t make you … smile …
but in fact … make you …
………. ” FROWN ” ……… !!!!!!!!

My writings and … Quotes …
are … Not to … gain votes …
cos people who … ” Voted ” …
are on the … ” WRONG DOPE ” … !!!!!

Political Games ….
from the … Same …
” Shameless ” …. names …. !!!!!

What’s wrong with you people … ?!!!?
You must …. ” ENJOY PAIN ” …. ?????

Like …. Taxation riSES …. !!!
and … “Financial” … STRAIN … !!!!!
It’s like the … ” Dark Ages ” …
all over … AGAIN … !!!!! …

I’m not like these poets
who just … ” Entertain ” …

These wannabee actors
who want … TV Fame …
or rappers who really
Do Not … have the … ” Game ” …
to get themselves … “Into” …

Hip Hops’ ………… ???

… ” Hall of SHAME ” … !!!!!!!!!

No names … will I … mention …
Who hold … such … ” Pretension ” …
cos’ people like …. ” These ” …

…… ” TAINT ” ……
” Public Perception ” …

They … LACK …
TRUE … Direction … !!!!!

They’re spreading …..
…… ” INFECTION ” …… !!!

The style they … Present …
…….. REALLY NEEDS …….. !!!!!
….. “Close inspection” …..

What comes from … their lips
are … NOT … ” Witty Quips ” …

Most of their … wordplay …
is really ….. ” NOT FIT ” ….. !!!
for … ” Public Performance ” …

Their Cue …
has … NO TIP … !!!!!!!!

“Laugh” … if you like …
” Cry ” … if you like …

All that I ask ….
is … some time to …
…… ” Recite ” ……

You may be surprised … ?
by prose i’ve … Comprised …

BELIEVE …. !!! …..
when I … Tell You …
My Words ……

” AREN’T … Contrived ” … !!!!!!

My Poetry’s … written …
from … ” Everyday Life ‘ …

While Many … are writing …
PURE … ” Poetic LIES ” … !!!!!

I wear … No Disguise …

My words are … ” Devised ” …
to make people see …..
what they … “hide” …
……. “Deep Inside” …….

So what’s in the mind … ?
of a poet who … rhymes …

Is it … ” Depression ” … ?!?
or … Simple … ” Expression ” …

My mind is … ” Inclined ” …
to … Share Views … with … You …

Even if … some of them …
make you feel … ” BLUE ” … !!!!!

I just … Cannot Abide … !!!!!
These poets … who … TRY … ?!?
to … “hide” … Who they are …
Behind … ” Humorous Lies ” … !?!

cos’ life is … ” A Ride ” …
from which … You …

…… ” CAN’T HIDE ” ……. !!!!!!!!!!

“Opinions” … give clues …

So …
What is … ” Your View ” … ???

Has this piece called …
…… ” Opinions ” …..

… ” Entertained ” … you … ???

I’m not here to … ” Please you ” … !!!
I’m here to speak … ” TRUTH ” … !!!!!!!

So … don’t ever think
I need a … ” Fake Crew ” …

I’m looking for people
who want ……..
Something …. ” NEW ” …. !!!

A Poet … whose words …
asks question of … YOU …

Comedy’s … GREAT … !!!!
I ……. LovvvVVVE …… !!!!! ……
A … GOOD SHOW … !!! …

But … Leave Comedy …
to … ” Comedic Pros’ ” … !!!!!

All poetry’s … DIFFERENT …
OKAY … YES ………

…… ” I KNOW ” …… !!!!!!

I’m simply … Expressing …
“My Views” … in this prose …

Can’t I do that … ?!? …
I’m walking … 8 Mile …
WITHOUT … Battle Rap … !!!!!

Now ….
If you … Don’t Want To …
You Don’t … have to … clap … !!!

I just want to … SEE …
who’s …TRUE TO … ” The Art ” …
and EXPOSE … These Poets …
who talk out dem’ …..
…….. “ CLAAT ” ……… !!!!!!!

I Don’t ……
THINK … i’m smart …
I KNOW … that …

……… ” I AM ” ……..

and if you …. ” Applaud ” ….
that must make me ….

…….. “THE MAN” …….. !!!!!

cos’ you’ve clearly enjoyed
………… READING ………..

My … “OPINIONS” …

Peace y’all …. and like the title says ….

Be careful with em’ yeah …..

Later.
