“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 ? ”

“Guilty As Charged” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/12/2005

This was inspired a long time ago, by the murder of Anthony Walker, RIP.

…. but, how things change, and yet, somehow, “Remain The Same” … ???

Hopefully, ONE DAY, the people, living by ignorant attitudes & wickedness, WILL, one day, like the two boys who I refer to, at the start of this poem, be deemed …..

“GUILTY AS CHARGED !”

Axe Murderers … ???

“GUILTY” …
as … Charged … !!!!!

They’ll now … spend time
” Stuck ” …. behind bars …. !!!!!

But ….
Let me pull …
Some … ” Other ” … Cards
from ….. ” The Pack ” …..
Where … GUILT … is … Stacked … !!!!!

England …. as ….
A … ” RACIST ” … Place … ???

” GUILTY ” ……… ” YES ” …… !!!
Even ….. Today ….. !!!!!!!!!!

NOW It’s … ” WELL ” ……
“hidden” …… away ……

Can … ANY … of you … ?
” Now ” …. TRULY …. say …..

You Don’t Hold … FEAR …
of …. My …. Black Face …. !!!?!!!

Racists now …..
Have found … ” New Ways ” … !!!
and …. CLEARLY ….. Still …..
Have got …. ” NO SHAME ” …. !!!!!

But Some …
Black People … ?!?
are … just the same … ?!?
As …. ” Caucasians ” ….
and some …. ” Asians ” ….

If you have ….
A … Skin Tone … DARK … ?

You’re deemed … to be …
A … ” Lower Class ” … !!!!!!!

Asians … KNOW … !!!
How … “That One” … goes ….

So …
PLEASE … Don’t Even …
Try to …. Start …. !!!!!!!!!!!!

A … ” Marriage System ” …
based on …. ” CASTE ” …. ?!!!?

This proves … They Are …

” GUILTY ” …
as … Charged … !!!!!

Blacks who … ” Sell ”
Cocaine and … CRACK … !!!!!

Don’t … EVEN TRY … !!!!!
Some Do …. supply ….

” Drug Wars ” …
Now … PROVE … !!!
that this … is … FACT … !!!!!

Our lives are … HARD … !!!
as is …. ” My Stance ” ….

“GUILTY” …
AS … CHARGED … !!!!!

Leaders … who …
BELIEVE … They’re … GODS

I’ll say …. No Names ….

“GUILTY” …
AS … CHARGED …. !!!!!!

People … wasting … !!!
Cash On … PETS …
while others … have …
” Financial ” … STRESS … !!?!!

Can you guess … ?
What’s coming … Next .. ?!?.

NO …
YOU CAN’T … !!!!!

because … NEXT …
Doesn’t … Rhyme …
with … words like …

…. ” Charged ” …. !!!!

But …
Words from … That …
” Penultimate ” … verse …
Prove that … peoples’ …
Words are … ” Feeble ” … !!!

They place their … Pets … ?
HIGH UP … like … ” Steeples ”

But ….
Don’t give a … ” Damn ”
About … ” Poor People ” … !!!!!

So Many … ” Crimes ” … !!!
“Within” … Mankind …
Shown through … these …

” Exquisite ” … rhymes … !!!!

Help me … ” Feel Fine ” …
in …. ” Crime-filled ” … times …

” Time ” … is something …
with … ” NO CHARGE ” …

it just … ticks on …………………

while we …… ” DO WRONGS ” …. !!!!! ….

Trust me folks …
I’ve had … “My Fill” … !!!

So … choose to use …
Notepad … and … Will
to … ” Charge ” … My Pen … !!!
and … EXPOSE GUILT … !!!!!

Like telling … ” Truths ” …
About … ” OLD BILL ” … !!!!
or … YES … ” The Cops ” … !!!!!

Lies they … tell …
… NEED TO …
be … ” STOPPED ” … !!!!!!!!!!!

before more people
end up …. ” SHOT ” …. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well …now we’ve seen
Their … “Cover-Up” …. PLOTS …. !!!!!

From ……

” Bottom to Top ” ….

Judgement Passed …..

” GUILTY ” …
as … CHARGED … !!!!!!!!!!!!

Denial of … TRUTH … !!!!!

while those they … ” Use ” …
Can … FREELY … Shoot …
without the need of …

” Concrete Proof ” … !!?!?!?!!

Now if … ” Your Son ” …
was … ” Shot and Killed ” … ?
by … “undercover” …
Met … ” Old Bill ” … !!!!!

SURELY YOU …
Would Hit … ” THE ROOF ” … ?!!!!?

Well … I Would Do … !!!
and … would want …

….. TRUTH ….. !!!!!!

NOT …. ” Dud Cards ” … !!!
from … ” End to … Start ” …

When … LIES …
They’ve … ” Fed ” …
are … “Rip … PED” …

……. APART ……. !!!!!!!

I’d want to … HEAR …

” GUILTY
AS CHARGED ” …… !!!!!!

” MURDER ” …. is ….
What They … HAVE DONE … !!!!!!

KILLING … One …
“THEY CLAIMED” … “Had Run” … ????!????

We now …. face ….
A … ” POLICE STATE ” … !!!!!

Shouldn’t … ” They Face ” … ???
A … ” Magistrate ” … ?!!!? …

Who Should … ” IMPART ” …
words like …. THESE ….

“GUILTY” ….
AS …. CHARGED …. !!!!!!!

Let me … Move On …
to those who’ve … Run …
” This Scene ” … TOO LONG … !!!

By this …. I mean ….
These … ” Poetry Cliques ” …

They act … just like …
The … ” Met Police ” … !!!!!

” PICKING ” … Those …
They can … CONTROL … !!!!!

Those who … WON’T … !!!!

Step … ” Out of Line ” …
and … EXPOSE … how …
They Rule … the town …
by …. usage of ….

” Poetic Clowns ” … !!!!!

” WEAK PEOPLE ” …….

Who … Can’t be … “found”… !!!!
When their moves ……
Make people …… FROWN ….. !!!!

” Noses ” ….. !?! …..

…….. ” BROWN ” ……… !!!!!!

To earn … themselves …
Those …. ” DIRTY POUNDS ” …. !!!!!

Their movements are ….

A ….. ” FALLACY ” …..

Poetry … or … Spoken Words
Crews … They Use …
write … ” Trivial Verse ” …

MOST … of you …
May Not … concur … ?

That’s … Cool with me … !!!
cos’ when … You Hear …
….. My Poetry …..

You’ll Forget … THEM … !!! …

Just wait and … SEE … !!!!! …

Their … ” ABSTRACT ” … Art …
should of … STAYED …
Inside …. ” Their Arse ” …. !!!!!

Bourgeoise … FOOLS …
who have … NO CLASS … !!!!!

That’s why … They’re in …
This Poem …. LAST …. !!!!!!!!

Those … whose life …
and words … are … FARCE … !!!!!!!

and thrive off … Keeping …

” US ” ……………………… APART ……….

” One Day ” ……….. WIL BE ………….

” GUILTY …. AS …. CHARGED “.

Oh Yes …
One day …
They WILL …. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Lack’ … A poem written by Big Virge 20/6/2006

2013 has shown me in so many ways how people are lacking in a great many things ….

Here are a few that I could clearly see, were gonna become more visible in people, some time ago ….

So, what do you … “LACK” … Huh … Motha Uckers !!! …………

Everybody lacks … something …
That’s a … Fact … !!!

So …
Let me ask you this … ?
What do … You Lack … ?

Do you lack …
” Common Sense ”
or …. Confidence … ???

or …
Do you lack what it takes … ?
to forsake what you gain …
from living … just for money …
like these … Corporate Heads … !!!

Well money …
” Certainly ” …. Pays …. !!!

But ….
Does not … ” Allay ” …
Unhappy Days … !!! …

Ask those … who take …
“Every Piece” … of the cake … !!!

If they say … Their Cash … !!!
Removes … Their Pain …
They’re being … Fake … !!!

Question …. ?
what they say … ?

If they lost their …
… ” Loved Ones ‘ …

Could their cash … Replace … ?
” Loved Ones ” … who’d placed …
Smiles on … Their face … !!! ? !!! …

The answer is … NO … !!!
and this … They Know … !!!

So …
Do you lack …
” Other things ” … ?
that … make you think …

” What is The Point !!?!! ”
of … Making Noise …
about the way …
we live … today …

Well …
that’s okay …
it’s been … that way …
since the … early days …
of … ” Shackled Slaves ! ” …

Many lack … the ability …
to face … ” The Truth ” … !!!

Do those … last words …
Apply … to you … !!?!! …

Well …
If they … DO … ?!?

You’re lacking in food …
You should … Consume … !!!

These days …
I Lack … ” Patience ” …
with those who are …
….. ” Blatant ” …..

” Ignorant Fools !!! ” …

Those I find …
with … ” Narrow Minds ” …
who choose to … move …
in the land … of the blind … !!!

Those now inclined …
to … Ignoring Signs … ?!?
that …. ” Indicate ” ….

………. ” New ” ………..
” Troubled Times ” … !!! …
for … “Our” …
” Human Kind ” … !!!

But … if we pressed …

“Click” ………..
Rewind …

I’m sure we’d find …
Many Things … ” Replicated ” …
Like …… ” Old Pastimes ” ……

Do you lack … ?
The Ability …
to want to … ” Backtrack ” … ?

Can I ask you …
” Freely ” … ?

Why are you … like that … ???

Afraid of what you’ll see … ??!??
or … what you’ll … FIND …
that’ll … EXPOSE … Lies …
“Cleverly” … disGuiSed …
to keep … The Truth …

hidden ……

….. From …..
” Enquiring Minds ? ” …

This seems to be …
… ” Planned ” … !?!

to … Ensure Most …
….. ” Lack ” …..

” The Ability ” …..

to deal with … FACTS …

Like …..
Why are women …
Soooo hard … to understand … ???

In the very beginning ….
They’re … HARD to ATTRACT … !!!!!

If ….
You’re a man …
who … HOLDS … Your Stance …
THAT … You give a damn …
” About ” … Their Needs …

while those who … Lack …
such ….. ” Courtesies ” …..
seem to get … Pussy …

Like …. ” Next one please !!! ”

Girls who … LACK …
any … Common Sense …
are those … I don’t want …
inside ….. My Bed ….. !!!!!!!!!!

But ….
Hell Yes … Yeah …

I’ll pass through theirs’ … !!!!!

Now ….
Hear me out girls …
Don’t take … Offence … !!!!!

But ….
Too Many … of you …
Pick The ….

“Wrong Damned Men ?!?”

Again and Again …..
Your Case … CLEARLY …
Has …. ” No Defence ” … !!!!!

These days …
There’s a …. LACK ….
of … ” Good ol’ … FUN … !!!

Especially with …
A … ” Good Woman ! ” …

….. ” Relationships ” …..
seem to end … So Quick … !!!

Before … ” Love’s Able ” …
to get a …. ” GRIP !!! ” ….
and have a chance to …

…….. ” Sit ” ………

at the … Dinner Table …
That’s … ” REALITY ” …
and is … ” No Fable ! ” …

Like …. Kane and Abel …

Things are … CLEARLY …
Quite …. ” Unstable ” …. !!!!!

Like … reception through …
Those … ” Dodgy Cables ! ‘ …

No … MTV …
or … Sky TV …

But …
Here’s the link …
So take … THIS IN … !!!

There’s now a … LACK …
of ….. ” RELIABILITY ” …..
in how …. People ….
Now Seem … to be … !!!!!

“I’ll call you tonight !”

“Cool, that’s just fine,
I should be home,
by, half past nine,
don’t let me down,
I don’t like to be clowned !!!”

“Trust me man,
I will ring you !!!”

” Haven’t heard from
….. THAT FOOL …..
for a whole week now …
if he calls me with …
A Poor excuse …
My mouth is gonna,
leave him … Schooled …
and make him … frown …
with the words … I Choose … !!! ”

I just can’t stand ….
when people …. LACK ….

….. ” Reliability ” ….. !!!!!!!!!!!

or … is it … Just Me … ?!?

Asking … TOO MUCH … !!!
to hope that …. Some ….

“Good Ones” … are left … !!!
who are …. ” Reliable ” ….
from … Start to End … !!!

and deal in …
” Honesty ” …

People … You TRULY ..
can call … Your Friends … !!!!!

Well ….
One thing … I Don’t Lack … !
is a will to … ” Express ” …
through poetry …. sent ….
to my …. Notepad …. !!! ….

So … now it’s time …
to end … This Rhyme …

About ….
Some Things ….

That … WE ALL …
…… ” Lack ” …… !!!!!

But ….
If you think ….

You DON”T … Lack Anything … ???

Let me just say this ….

You are … DREAMING … !!!!!!!!!

EVERYONE …
Lacks something ….

That’s just … FACT … !!!!!!!

So …..
Be HONEST … with yourself …

What Do … You … ?

…….. Lack …….. ???
