” They Try ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Yes Yes People …..

Keeping it moving with more Big Virge Music !

Back to Virges’ World Vol. 2 …. for this Strat Carter produced number, we had a lot of fun in discussing & finalising the production for this, the effects are very deliberate on this track, not that the others haven’t been, but, it was interesting what each of us heard and how it all came together, in the end.

Having been shown some of the stuff deemed worthy of the recent VMA’s, especially from our young crop of so called, Hip Hoppers …..

Well, suffice to say, they’re doing they’re thing in the new age of what’s HIP, in Hip Hop, uh hmmm ….

My thoughts on a lot of these young cats, be they Kendrick Big, or, not so, are basically where this track starts, but moves as ever, into multiple areas of where people be trying REAL HARD, to prove they are …. ” Whatever ” ….

Well, sadly for me, they really AREN’T …

Trying hard enough to produce that good stuff, as expressed in this piece ……

” 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 …

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 …

“Do You Ever Get … The Urge ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 12/4/2006

Do you … Ever … ?
Get the … Urge … ?
to … write down words …
which when … ” Observed ” …
Help people … ” Learn ” …

Its… HARD … to know … !!!!!
what’s good to … use … ?
when writing … prose …
that gives out … clues …
about … your views …
and … ” Darkest Moods ” …

When some … conclude …
That … ” You’ve got issues !!! ” …

” EVERYONE ” … Does … !!!!!
and that’s … ” The Truth ” … !!!!!!!!

So ….
Don’t write for … ” THEM ” … !!!!!
Try …. Writing for …. YOU …. !!!!!

Do you feel … ” Impelled ” … ?
or in … Other Words … ” Urged ” … ?
or let’s say …. ” Compelled ” …. !?!
to … ” SELL YOURSELF ” …
to … ” Acquire ” … Wealth … !?!

Such … an urge …
Can … Make Some … Learn …
to do things … ” THAT ” …
Make stomachs … ” Churn ” … !!!!!!

Like … Many have said …
It’s … ” Hard to Earn ” … !!!

“Especially when” … !!! …
You try to … collect …
when it’s NOT … your turn … !!!?!!!

” DO NOT PASS GO !!!
GIVE BACK THAT CASH !!!!! ”

” I think you … KNOW …
You haven’t earnt … THAT … !!! ”

That’s just a … joke … !!!
but it … Makes me … MAD … !!!!!
when … ” Certain Folks ” …
leave people … Broke … !!!!!

Like … ” Certain Police ” …
who’ve now … been shown …
to … ROB … Old People …
of their …. Homes …. !!! ? !!!

So that they can pay
for … ” Five Star ” … Holidays …

That’s a news story …
I’ve read … today …

Well …
I’m GLAD … to say …
He’s been … ” Locked Away ” … !!!!!

So ….
Do you ever get …
… ” The Urge ” … ?

to … Chat up … girls … ?
Especially when … !!! …
They’ve got … ” Those Curves ” …
That make …. ” Heads Turn ” … ?!!!?

Be careful now … !!!
You may get … ” Burned ” … !!!!!

If she looks … ” THAT HOT ” … !!!

She’s probably … got …
A number of … ” Hounds ” …
Chasing her … Around Town … !!!!!

and may ….. ?
” Often ” … work …
Her way … ” Down South ” …
with a mouth just like …
A … ” Circus Clown ” … !!!!!

and probably … ” Gives it up ” …
for money … ” Any Currency ” … !!!!!
Dollars, Euros … ” or ” … Pounds … !!!!!

“I can hear them now !!!”

“Without some cash,
for me to burn,
Control that urge !!!
and wait your turn !!!!!”

I’m saying girls … !!!
what’s up with … THAT … ?!?

I … ” Urge You ” … to …
show … ” More Virtue ” … !!!

There’s … CLEARLY …
Something … Wrong with you … !!!!!

So ….
Do you ever … ?
Get … ” The Urge ” … ?
to use … Sexual Tools … !?!

Well ….
Like the girls …
in … THAT … last verse …

Such … ” Perverse Attitudes ” …
Prove … You probably … DO … !!!

Well … ???
That’s … Not quite … ” True ”

Don’t … get it … confused … !!! ? !!!

Some couples … now choose …
to fill … bedrooms …
with … Dildos … Cuffs …
and … ” Other Stuff ” … !!!!!
to feed … their needs …
for … ” Wild ” … Sex sprees … !!!

Now … let me explain …
“My Views” … on this subject …
Straight … and … Plain …

I … REALLY …
LOVE SEX … !!!!!

But …
Sexy underwear …
is enough … for me … !!!!!

because …
I have to say … !!!!
It’s … Great to Play … !!!!!!

But ….
At the end of the day …
Sex … Isn’t a game …
when girls cry … ” RAPE ” … !!!!!!!

Some girls … ” Get The Urge ” …
when they feel … ” HURT ” …
to set men … up …
when they’ve had … ” ENOUGH ” … !!!!!

” Come on, PULL MY HAIR !!!
Yes there, Ooooo YEAH !!!!! ”

” THEY ARE ” …. out there ….

So fellas … ” BEWARE ” … !!!!!

before you end up
in a … ” Courtroom Chair ” … !!!!!!!!

“Scary” … words …
but … Do you ever … ?
Get The … Urge … ?
to just … ” Return ” …
to your … ” Ex-girl ” … ?

Well ….
that’s an … ” Urge ” …
that … May Not … work … !!!

because she is … ” Your Ex ” …
for a reason …… ” YES ” ……. !!!!!

If you … ” Miss Her ” …
…… ” COOL ” ……

But …..
Don’t be … ” A Fool ” …

” PLEASE ” …..
Think it through … !!!!!

If you make … ” That Move ” …
Lay down … The Rules …
Then …. DO YOUR DO …. !!!!!!

Just like … ” BRAND NEW ” … !!!!!!!

So …
Do you ever get … The Urge ..
to simply …. ” Observe ” ….
and watch … individuals …
in this …. World …. ?

I have to say … !!!
” Sometimes ” … I Do …
because it helps me … ” Fuel ” …
My … Poetic Wordplay …

That’s Why … My Words …
Leave … ” So Many ” … Stirred … !!!!!

I guess some think …
i’m a bit …. ” DISTURBED ” …. !!!!!!!

I … ” Urge ” … them to …
Not Hold … such views … !!!

It’s … ” REALITY ” … !!!
….. ” My Poetry ” … !!!!!

and is …
” Mostly ” … Based …
on things i’ve seen … !!!

If … My Words … ” SHOCK ” … !!!
or … give you … ” KNOCKS ” … !!!

Like …. Marvin said ….
” What’s going on ??? ” ….

Can you … NOT SEE … !?!
things are … Going Wrong … !!!!!

From relationships ….
to … ” Modern Day ” … kids …

I’m simply … ” Sharing ” …
“My Views” … on things …

Things like … ” STINGS ” … !!!
for …. Diamond Rings ….
and …. Peoples’ cash ….
to live life …. ” Flash ” …. !!!

while … ” Many ” …
have … ” NOTHING ” …

Don’t it … make you MAD ?!?

That’s why ….
I get …. ” The Urge ” ….
to put … ” Pen to Pad ” …
and write … ” These Words ” …
that … ” Sometimes ” … HURT …
when based on … FACT …

” Whatever ” …. THAT is …. !!!! ? !!!!

These days we see …
So Many … things ..
That … Make us … ” SICK ”
from …. ” Poli-tricks ” ….
to …. ” Starving Kids ” …. !!!

This is why … I think …
Like …. ” Good Music ” ….

We need to … ” PRESERVE ”
“This Use ” … of words …

Through …. ” Poetry ” ….

So …..

” Even if ” ….
” They Disturb ” ….

… “Or” … Leave you …
…. ” STIRRED ” ….

when it comes to
…. ” Words ” ….

” Do you EVER get
… The Urge … ? ”
