“Denial” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

Oh and…. before anyone starts running the ….

“Oh, he’s obviously got a problem with gays !”, type rhetoric….

Well, this piece was actually written on the 29/06/2005

A whole 10 Years ago !

My position was clear then, as it is now, and much like all the other groups who are spoken about, within this piece, if they want to be accepted and treated EQUALLY, like everyone else ….

Well, accept that everybody ISN’T, necessarily down with the Gay Movement ….

and that some of us are not just gonna fall in line with the ….

“Oh, You’ve Gotta show support for the gays”, vibes, that are currently riding …

VERY HIGH …..

Anyway, let’s get to the bigger issue of denial in peoples’ attitudes ….

As the poem states, it is a BIG F’ing Problem …. and if you are one who takes offence to things you hear in this, well, you would seem to have a cap to wear that has on it’s peak, in …

BIG BOLD LETTERS

D E N I A L …..

Get over yourselves, and face what you know to be true, not only about yourself, but, more importantly, the world around you …..

“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 ???”
