” 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 …

of what’s … ” Called ” … THE TRUTH … ?!?

THE TRUTH … About …

” The World ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” Girls ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

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 … ???

Have The Time …
To … OBSERVE … The Signs … ?

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’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 ….

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 … !!!!!

You gotta love it … !!! … written by Big Virge 28/11/2013

It’s taking quite a lot these days for me to, str8 blog, as it were …

But……
Ya know what, you gotta love, “Facehook”, don’t ya !?!

It gives people, the option, to stay connected to, trends, events, and in some cases, find, long lost friends … !!!!

Well, I say, “Facehook”, because, some of these people, who determine, THEMSELVES, to be, “Your Friends”, recognise, from say, a couple of posts that a person makes, that, actually, They and You, are really on, “VERY DIFFERENT PAGES !!!”.

I found this out yesterday, and today, when I suddenly, realised that, someone who met me in recent times, had unfriended me !!!!

Why ???

Well, I guess he knows, and he’d probably say that, “Well, Your Attitude Virge, is very Negative and Disrespectful, to people in general, and, to my country !!!”

Hmmmmmm the, “Last Bit”, is where it all begins, the issue of racism, is still a very, “Touchy One”, for, “Most People”, for obvious reasons, but, when the shoe is thrown out of the box, as in, ” EXPOSURE “. of racist attitudes and tendencies, from, in this case, English folks,

“Oh, I am fed up with hearing about it !!!”, is the type of reply, that seems to prevail ???

… as if we, black folks, should STOP !!!

… frying that chip on our shoulder, and just, swallow our pain, and shut our mouths about it, when it is clear that, it has NOT, gone away, even in 2013 !!!!!

As I now live on old, “Plantation”, land, where as a rasta’ yute, told me yesterday, black Folks, “COULD NOT COME TO !!!”, in the, ” Good Ol’ Days !!!!! “.

Oh, I should just, FORGET, about that right !!!
Especially when, their legacy is connected, directly, to England ?!!!?

Oh, okay then, funny that, when, I don’t see, that many black folks living up in here, even now !!!!!

However, who can afford to rent, the BIGGER properties, up in here, oh, “British High Commission”, peoples’ !?!

Hmmmmmm so, how much change has actually occurred in the last couple of hundred years, not that much, it would seem ??

Meantime, war vets’ who have died since, way back whenever !!!!!

We should, celebrate, and pay homage to them, even today ?!?

… while the families of victims, of ridiculous, bombing campaigns and attacks, or should I say, INVASIONS, into lands where they, WERE NOT INVITED, are still having to find ways to overcome, not only their family losses, but, additionally, their loss of …

” IDENTITY ” … !!!!!

A thing that has, Extensive Repercussions, that clearly, can last for generations !!!!!

The funny thing is that, a place like Facebook, has become for some, a place to, PARADE, Flags, and their pride for, what were, and are, essentially, contract killers, who, in the case of say, Christopher Alder, seemed to have had a contract, that, was FLAWED, as he died, or, was more than likely, MURDERED, on a police station floor, while policemen laughed and roared, monkey taunts !!!!!

Can we black folks post & express about it, without being called, “Haters of the UK”, where this happened ???

“Oh, we should, again, talk about it in private, don’t dare try to expose the wicked, horrific dealings, of the upper echelons of the Union Jack !!!! which as the song said, never had, and STILL doesn’t, have any black in it !!!!!

Man …… !!!!

Loss of, ” Friends “, or, comments that then define the, callous & ignorant levels of some, English Minds, comes to pass,

“Why didn’t you get the fuck out before then !!!”

Hmm, forgetting that, in some cases, we don’t all, just leave our, “Loved Ones”, in my case, my mother !!!

… to be left in the hands of white peoples’ care, who seem to like to keep, Dead Black Soldiers bodies, after they’ve told the family, that they have buried their son & brother, for some, ten years after, the ACTUAL BURIAL !!!!!

… as was the case for Mr. Christopher Alder, RIP, who, after being, “Allegedly”, buried, was held, in their care, for essentially, TEN YEARS, without any reason being given, up to now, that makes any kind of sense !!!!!

I suggest these, smart-mouthed fellas, put their tea cups down, and try smelling the coffee, without the milk in it, for a change !!!

I was very reluctant to join Facebook, but, now I actually, enjoy using it, if, for nothing more, than to see, who does or doesn’t share, REAL SHIT !!!, and who uses it for, “Banter”, as if that’s a … “Positive Way” … to indulge in a social network, that, if used appropriately, could perhaps, start movements, like say, Twitter Campaigns, although, obviously filled with, “Twits”, mostly !!! LOL !!!

That are, apparently, beyond government controls !!!

The Double Standards and Bullshit of people, REALLY, comes to light, in a way, that, can clear up any, bogus relationships, that exist, in maybe, one of the parties minds, about the level of connection/closeness, that they may, or may not, have …. ???

There is INDEED, a difference between, “Acquaintances”, and, “Friends” … !!!!!

BELIEVE IT PEOPLE !!!!!

I have, ” Friends “, on Facebook, who, have threatened to rob me, come in my home, and been so selfish, as to drink out mans’ drink, to the point where, they, only barely, managed, to beg for a bucket to puke in, and, of course !!!

The “covert”, watchers, of what I post, who are sitting there, waiting for their opportunity, to make their, Sneak Attack, off some other cuntholes’ back !!!!!

Am I pissed or stressed ???
NO … !!!

I just have a brain, and intellect, which, allied to my basic levels of common sense, allow me to express my point of view with intelligence and deference, to, these peoples’, crude moves.

Friends, well, FOOLS, I’m glad to lose !!!

“TRUE FRIENDS”, recognise truths, and deal with them !!!!!

or, do the right thing, ” Agree to Disagree “, and move on, if possible, but, when a person expresses to you, due to your views, that, you should unfriend them, just be REAL with yourself, and, do it people !!!

Don’t leave a name on your friend page, who you know in your heart, you have a problem with, because of their views/attitude, etcetera etcetera …..

As said, what I am beginning to love about the web, is it’s social networks, trolls aside, because people really, seem to believe that, they can say what they want, without repercussion.

I recognise, more than most, the level of danger I bring to myself, by speaking my mind, but, as I read in another poets words, called, “Herbaliser”, from London,

“It is a bold step for a man to admit his truths,
Esspecially when tarnished with clues.
In this world, why is it hard to tell truths?”

Well, if … “Facehook”, is anything to go by …

because certain truths, are clearly, too painful
for, certain people to take, especially when,
they believed that, it would seem, in my case,
that my brain would refrain, from using, “Their News”,
to CLEARLY explain, that, views they hold
about how great their country is …

Define, to me, that things haven’t changed
They remain the same, when it comes to race
and what they, pay attention to
and, more importantly,
what should be, conveniently,
swept under the carpet
and locked away !!!!!

Double Standards, CLEARLY EXIST !!!

when I am told,
“I should button my lip !”
when it comes to things
that EXPOSE, The English,
for their, dirty tricks
and, how their worst, live …

It must be me,
who is the, ” Racist ”

You gotta love it !!!!!

“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 …….. ???
