The Total Package … (Redux) written & recorded by Big Virge

It makes sense to ask the question,
as it’s Pretty Clear now, the police are not … !!!

and, according to the woman who inspired this piece

I’m clearly not either …

Cheek !!!

but my lack of notoriety would seem to support her position ……

“Isn’t less … Sometimes … MORE ?!?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/10/2005

A suitable follow up to my last post …..

Isn’t … less … ?
Sometime … MORE … ?

Those words sound … GOOD …
If … You’re NOT … ” Poor ” … !!! …

But ……
Money … Doesn’t …
Give You … ” LIFE ” …
and … Life is … NOT …
Defined by …. ” Price ” ….

But ….
Is that … Right … ?!?

“Some” … would say …
it makes them … ” SMILE ” … !!!

Now … This Defines …
Those in … ” DENIAL ” …

It’s not my way …
to … Make you pay …
for things that … People …
Like to … Say …

But … writing things …
Helps … EASE … The Rage …
I Feel … Today …
because of … ” GREED ” …
That … leads to … PAIN … !!!!!

That’s why …
I’m … Asking … ?

What’s the score … ?

Isn’t less … ?
Sometimes … MORE … ?

cos’ … GREED …
is something …
I … ” DEPLORE ” … !!!!!

” Money ” …. Fuels ….
A … LOT of Wars … !!!!!
where people … ” DIE ” …

So …
How’s that … RIGHT … ?!?

More DEATH … than … Life
” Sees people ” …. CRY …. !!!!!

“Tears” … and eyes …
Don’t be … surprised …
If words I … speak …
” Darken ” … sunlight …

In todays’ times ….
while … writing rhymes …
I use … my mind …
to find … ” SUNSHINE ” … !!!

I have … Less Cash …
than … EVER BEFORE … !!!!!
and … face a life …
of being …. ” POOR ” ….

That’s … NOT FOR SURE …
But …. Money’s made ….
Pain … in me … ” SOAR ” … !!!

” Arguments ” ….
to get some … CASH …
are … ” DANGEROUS ” … !!!!!
and … Make Some … ” CLASH ” … !!!!!!!

I’d rather have ….. ” LESS ” …. !!!
than … ” MORE ” … of that … !!!!!

Mums and Dads …..
Now … Fight for … Cash … ?

” Ignoring ” … Daughters … ?!?
and their …. ” Lads ” …. !?!

These are … things …
NOT GOOD … but … BAD … !!!!!

EVEN … Fathers … !!!
and their … SONS … !!!!!
will go to … ” Court ” … ?!?

Now …
THAT’S … NOT FUN … !!!!!

“Over” …. MONEY …. ?!?
Come on now ….. !!! …..

That’s just as … BAD … !!!
as … Gun-Type … Sounds … !!!

“LESS” … Violence … !!!
is … BETTER THAN … MORE … !!!!!

Like … LESS DEFIANCE …
Breeds … ” Less War ” …

MORE … Aggression … !!!
FEEDS … Depression … !!!

“These” … are things …
I’d Like to … ” LESSEN ” … !!!

Sometimes … LESS TALK …
and … More … Action …
Can bring you … YES …

….. ” Satisfaction ” ….. !!!!!

and … That’s a … FACT … !!!
” Don’t ” … DISMISS THAT … !!!!!

But … it’s …
GOOD … to talk … !!!
when … Building Forts … !!!!!

But … !!! …

NOT … A Fortress …
Just for … ” YOU ” … !!!

… ” REMEMBER ” … !!!

” Other People ” … FOOL … !!!!!
may take …. because ….
They … Want That … TOO … !!!!!

That’s what … MORE …
Can sometimes … ” DO ” …

Make …. people ….

“JEALOUS” … of you … !!!!!

and make them … PULL …
” The Darkest ” … Moves … !!!!!

If you haven’t got a thing …
What’s there to … Take … ???

I guess … This View …
is not … the way …

But … look around you …
….. ” NOWADAYS ” ….. !!!!!

Can you say i’m wrong … ?
at the end of the … day … ?!?

” Some ” …
will … KILL YOU … !!!
for … ” Your Chain ” … !?!

I’m thinking …
Some folk … are … INSANE … !!!!!

Check …. ” New Orleans ” … !!!
when facing … ” Death ” … !!! …

Some … were stealing …
….. ” TV Screens ” ….. !!!!! ? !!!!!!
Instead of … Helping …
Those who … ” SCREAMED ” … ??? ! ???

Come on now folks …
See what … I mean … !?!

” Money ” … breeds …
“RUTHLESS” … ” Street Teams ” … !!!!!

Who … then do things …
that are … ” OBSCENE ” … !!!!!

” Happiness ” ….
means … MORE … to me …
than …. ” ANY SUM ” ….
of … Cash Money … !!!!!!

Times …. Right now …
have made me … SEE … !!!

Money … CAN’T …
Fulfil … My Dreams … !!!

” LESS ” …….. Murder ……..
Gives us … MORE LIFE … !!!!
and … Helps To … KEEP …
Our Race ….. ” ALIVE ” ….. !!!!!

ALL … Colour Types … !!!
from … Black to White …

” Less Division ” ….

Helps MORE … ” UNITE ” … !!!!!

and … THAT …
For Sure … !!!
is … Better than … WAR … !!!!!!

and … NOW … has made …
My Mind …. ” EXPLORE ” ….

This simple question ….

” Isn’t Less … ?
Sometimes … MORE ???”

“Progression” … A poem written by Big Virge 14/4/2006


Nowadays … when I write …
My Tension … ” Lessens ” …
which … Helps me find …
Some … ” Peace of Mind ” …

Enabling me …
To Avoid ….

” Depression ” …. !!!!!!

My writing style …
Keeps On … ” Progressing ” …

Thus … when I write …
I do … Less … stressing …

I’m now … investing …
So Much Time … !!! …

“Constructing” … sentences …
Built in …. rhyme ….
that time now seems …
to …. pass me by ….

I don’t know … why … ?
but … now my life …
Feels … Less Complex …
when I … ” Express ” … !!!
the thoughts that … REST …
inside …. My Mind ….

I’ve … NEVER …
been one …
to enjoy … a good cry …

I’d rather try …
to … ” Solidify ” …
My … ” Mental State ” …

So …. ” Contemplate ” ….
and …. ” Train My Brain ” ….
to …. ” Find A Way ” ….
to …. ” Ease My Pain ” ….

That’s … Easy to Say …
But …. ” Not To Do !!! ” ….

Especially when ….
You have …. ” Dark Moods ! ”

Moods … that can lead …
to …. ” Self Abuse ” …. !!! ….

“Intercepting” …. Progression ….

Well …..
That’s …. NOT GOOD …. !!!!!

Simple inspection …
of thoughts your collecting …
can give you … “Direction” …
and … Fuel … Your Progression …

WE ALL …
NEED TO LEARN … !!!!!

from life’s …
“Simple Lessons” …
and make … “Good Selections” …
or face … “Long Detentions” …
once judges … Pass Sentence … !!!

AIDS … keeps on progressing …
because of … ” Infections ” …
So … USE … some protection …
when getting …. ERECTIONS …. !!!!!!

and girls …..

” Take Your Time ” …

with … EVERY … New Guy …
before yes … ” Progressing ” …
To Spreading … ” Those Thighs ” … !!!

“Progression’ … is nice … !!!
when … Temperatures’ Rise …
for … ” Sexual Type Highs ” …

Especially when ….
Her Body … is … TIGHT … !!!!!

When … Everything’s Right … !!! …
Drinks by … ” Candlelight ” …
or under … ” Moonlight ” … !!! …
Way Up … in the sky …

is the kind of … Progression …
I just …. Cannot Fight ….
and that’s a … Confession …
I’ll … ALWAYS … stand by … !!!!!

But …..
Only … with women …
with … “Progressive Minds” …

I Don’t like felines ….
with … Obsessive Minds …
or those now …. Inclined ….
to sniff on …. ” Cokelines ” …. !!!!!

Relationships …. Lengthen ….
when both are … Progressing …
on …. ” Similar Lines ” ….

Opposites … May Attract … ?
but sometimes … ” Collapse ” … !!!
because of … The Fact …
that … ” Forward Progression ” …
comes easy when moving …
in YES … ” One Direction ” … !!! …

The point that i’m …
…. STRESSING …. !!!

is … have a …
…. ” Connection ” …..
with who you’re ….
…. ” Selecting ” ….

and this …
You may find … ?
Helps keep you …
” Progressing ” …

Just like … I now do …
through words I now use …
that help me …. ” Defuse ” ….
My …. ” Aggressive Moods ” ….

These days …
I look forward …
and … try to … ” Progress ” …
because of the … ” Traumas ” …
that … make me get … MAD … !!!!!!

But now …
when I get …
My Pen and Notepad …
and … start to express …

It Helps me … Progress …
by … THINKING … much more …
Therefore … ” Stressing ” …

……. much less ………….

This form of … ” Progression ”
Develops … My Strength …
and … Helps me to … DEAL …
with … ” ignorant Heads ” … !!!

It’s … working for me …
in this … Society …
of …. ” Fallacies ” ….

Built to place … STRESS … !!!
on our need to … ” Progress ” … ?

We’re … CLEARLY …
….. ” Regressing ” …..
instead of … ” Progressing ” …

Life’s … providing
….. ” Distress ” ….. !!!
and … ” Stress-Filled Tests ! ”

that … cannot be … Eased …
by the … Latest PC …
or … HD … T.V.
when so many live in …

…… ” Poverty ” …… !!!!!!!!!

What kind of progression … ?
Creates … So Much …
….. ” Stressing ” …… !?!
about …. Energy ….
and having …. Money …. !!!?!!!

Is this … ” Humanity ” … ?!?

or just a … ” Procession ” …
to … Human Life … ending …
because of …. ” Aggression ” ….
and … ” Progressive Greed ” … !!!!!

So Many … have questions … ?
that they … Want to ask …
about our … ” Existence ” …

But …..
Where do we … start … !?!

When governments now …
Refuse to … back down … !!!!!

Our leaders are … ” Messing ” … !!!
with most of … “Gods’ Blessings” … !!!

We must … !!!
Lessen Tensions … !!!!!

REMEMBER ….
that sentence …. !!!!!

If we are to … ” Strengthen ”
We Need … ” Less Aggression ” … !!!
and should … Pay Attention … !!! …
to … ” Historys’ Lessons ” …

Especially those …
that have … ” Hindered ” …

…. ” Progression ” ….

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.
