” 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 …..

This month’s subject is … ” Hair ” … written & performed by Big Virge

All i’ll say is this …

It is Truly … INCREDIBLE, to believe & see that, in AFRICA … !!?!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-37219471

The matter, of black peoples’ HAIR, is even being mentioned in discussions of how we should present ourselves, in this,

” APPARENT ” ….. Post Apartheid, Mandela legacy, South Africa !

So ….
ONCE AGAIN, for 2016 ….

This stuff is …
BEYOND A … F’ing Joke ….. !!!!!!

However, it is no surprise, surprisingly … to me, with my well … ?!?

Hair …. !!?!!

…. and the all too frequent, disrespectful, name calling comments, that I can barely remember, let alone mention, regarding the aforementioned, Hair … smh …

Blacks, Whites & Asians alike, as this piece states, have no shame in running talk on how mine, and clearly, other black peoples’ hair, grows free ….

Untidy … to them … maybe … ???
Unclean … well ladies, … !!!

I’ll take that, pepsi challenge, that’s it’s cleaner than a lot of y’all …

Pussies … !!!!!

LOL … !!!!!!!

and y’all, UPP-ity … Black Girls … turning up your noses to my kind of wild styled hair, well, you best not be running that, straight FAKE Horse, or, Indian Hair, that ain’t yours alright !!!!!

Anyhow …

Here it is … ” Hair ” …

A lil’ sumthin’ I wrote whilst treading Philadelphia’s streets, whilst on holiday, a few years ago ….

So, what’s been happening …. ? … written by Big Virge 21/3/2016

Yes Yes People ……. !!!

Goodness me, these posts are getting less and less frequent, but thankfully, for a change, in this instance, it’s because i’ve been as busy as those, now choosing to create, levels of fear, destruction and terror, across the globe … !!!!!

Belgium today, and of recent, Paris, Nigeria, The U.S., South Africa and heaven knows where else on this seemingly, god-forsaken planet of ours !

So, i’ve been busy getting down to some, musical creativity, which I shall be sharing shortly, but, travelling has drained me somewhat, and I have other dramatic changes, about to take shape, within my life, that will, in all honesty, avail me further separation from people, than I already have, but that’s a whole other post !!!

So, before I get to the interesting stuff, I cannot possibly ignore this Election Race, Sanders & Clinton vs The Trump road show, of well, Hoopla & Encouragement of well, free expression …..

Well, for him at least ….. !!!

I am hearing and seeing all sorts of strange talk, and even, support for Clinton, as if she’s some kind of saint ?

Disdain for Donald, as if he was literally, the duck who bears his name, being dismissed by everything & everyone as a blowhard, who is destroying the …

” Good Ol’ Values ”

of the ever so … ONCE GREAT U.S. of A-holes …..

Well, he seems to be doing a great job of making it easy to believe that America is filled with them !!!

At least, at the levels of society, where he and his pals are at !

Did I say pals ?

Hmmmm, well, they are clearly NOT SO PALLY now, or, are they … ???

I even heard a man tell me that he feels that Trump is doing, whatever it is his campaigning does, to help Clinton win ?!!!?

Well, anything’s possible when dealing with the multitude of …
Blood-sucking insects, that define the word, Poli – Tics’ ….. !!!!!!

It’s amazing to me though, that when elections are not at the forefront of everyones’ minds, that people seem to, pretty much, all concur that politicians are liars and cheats, and are not to be trusted, but, when Election time does come around, especially in as influential a country, as America is ….

People suddenly find ways to validate their supporting, as many now claim, the better of the evils being offered up …. ?!?

Well, now that I am watching the new Lucifer TV series, one has to wonder if people, as a matter of course, will accept wickedness on some …. ” Just because … “, basis, rather than deny wickedness, as soon as they sniff any sense of it, which you’d think a logical person would do, but in 2016, logical behaviour now seems to be as rare, as a Trump Rally that preaches love and unity, well almost … !!!

There are one or two stand up people left, but, I do literally mean, ” The Odd “, one or two !!!!!

Peoples’ memory spans, and / or, ability to dismiss things that they know deep down in their hearts, that they are uncomfortable with, is truly astonishing … !!!!!

…. but hey, we’re al about to get penned in, if Trump, or, Boko Haram, or ISIS, get their way right.

Did you get what I did ?

The best play on words I saw recently, is that the west put the IS … in CRISIS … !!!!!

One to think on …….

The wheels have definitely, been set in motion, via Mr. Trumps’ rather, INFLATED EGO, and rhetoric !!!!!

However, instead of censoring, or brandishing him as being essentially ….

” Brutally Frank “, with his opinions, be they, for the camera or not, people are letting his talk, limit their rational thinking, in my opinion !

It is unwise to suggest that he can’t win this presidential race, simply because of the level of monetary influence and power, that he has, it is also unwise to trust in people who are using, YOUR MONEY, to finance their bid for office !

Unless you are gonna be able to influence their policy movements, if they get the BIG JOB !!!!!

” Go Fund Me “, type campaigns, for presidential hopefuls, is so crazy to me, that I really don’t even think I can express what I feel about individuals, parting with their, hard earned cash, to put it into, what are, essentially, hot air balloons, which would be a suitable description for the likes of all those running their chops about doing what exactly ???

Making America … GREAT again,
Making America … Unified & Peaceful
Making America … Proud again

Blah di Blah Blah …
F’ing blah ….. !!!!!

I think people need to take a second, and maybe, check through the histories of the combatants, and really assess how trustworthy these people are, from Clintons admission of being essentially, down with the types of individuals who stood for the ideals of Eugenics and basically, white supremacy …..

Such as, Margaret Sanger, look her up, the video is somewhere to be found on the, “Inter-web”, and then maybe, all these women chatting the …

“Oh well, it’s about time a woman got into power in the US.” … CROTCH … !!!

…. might wanna, just check her credentials, from a historical standpoint, and then maybe re-think, just a little bit … ?!?

The sterilisation of black people, appears to have been one of Sangers’ beliefs, as being beneficial to the human races’ progression !?!

Can a woman who claimed to support such a person, be suitable for a country that can’t even get past colour, when it comes to the Oscars ?!?

As said, these days, I choose not to express my point of view so much, which is a personal choice, as it’s become clear that, it’s really becoming somewhat of a literal

FREE FOR ALL …. out there !!!

… from sexuality, and the progressive growth in the pushing of certain imagery, into the psyches’ of the generations to follow, to the continual, confusing situation regarding Muslims ?!?

Having just returned from the UK, for all the apparent, Anti-Muslim Sentiment, I really saw, no level of panic amongst those walking next to, and or, working with Muslims.

In fact, England seems, as it always does, to be a bed of roses, COLD & POOR Roses, for the most part !!!!!

However, nothing too thorny was on display ?!?

So, when the politicians, or aspiring ones, like Mr. Trump, run their gums about the same people, who they seem, moments later, to be happy to be shaking hands, and doing business deals with, people should just, STOP and THINK, for a second, before jumping on the first train to, ” Hatesville’ “, behind some talk that essentially, garners attention, and stirs up a melting pot, that, the normal, ” Average Joe “, has to dip his hand in and confront, on a daily basis, which is one, that in all reality, isn’t necessarily one, that scaremongers, like Nigel Farage & their ilk, keep spouting vitriol about, that states a need to retain, some sense I guess, of Sovereignty, in this, ever changing world of ours.

I always find it interesting, when a man on the street, like say, my good self, tells it as it is, and is, Immediately labelled as being ….

Aggressive, Vicious, or even, BRUTAL, in my use of language and expression ?

Well, now y’all DEFINITELY KNOW, what brutal talk is … and it ain’t coming from the likes of me !!!!!

It’s coming from a man whose in, designer, tailored, bespoke suits, and who is a business mogul who has buildings named after himself !!!

The type of man who has a TV Show, that many, who are trying to slam him now, have probably indulged in watching, and, dare I say, found entertaining !

I actually, quite like Donald Trump, simply because …..

If he’s lying about his feelings, to get to the BIG SEAT, he’s pretty good at it !!!

However, if he is exposing the REAL Attitudes, of those in the corridors of power, particularly, Republicans, and garnering support from Americans, for speaking the things that most, have been and are currently thinking, but won’t say, then I applaud him, because he’s about the ONLY one doing it, including Mr. Obama !!!!!

Mr. Trump has done so, in a way that isn’t covered in sweet talk, to get people to take a nice, small slice of the cake, while he eats big !

You know why …. ?

Because …..

He already eats BIG, and is basically telling the world, if I get to be THE MAN, there’s about to be some,

REAL CHANGE, UP IN THIS BITCH … !!!!!!

… and, the poor may not even get any of the loose change, that he ever has in his pockets, i’d suggest, if he ever has any loose change in his pockets, at all now !!!

The warning is a STARK ONE !!!

Things may just become, REALLY BRUTAL, if people don’t start to recognise that, nice suits, ties and fancy speeches, do not, good leaders make ….. !!!

What does ?

Well, if you can pick one, throughout American, Political History, then feel free to let me know ……

For the meantime, I suggest you look beyond the fancy talk, rhetoric and Political Hoopla, that is going on, and see through the show, cos they are all very impressive actors, who know how to give you a … DAMNED GOOD SHOW … !!!

but be careful of, what it all bodes …… !!!!!

Signing off for now, as I ease back & chill, whilst listening to some cool sounds, from the hands of Nitin Sawhney, and funnily enough, one of the tracks that came on whilst I was constructing this post was called,

” Serpents ” ……

I’ll say no more ……

For Now ….

Stay Blessed folks.

Virge

“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

Adventurous December … !!! … to, Pacific Coastlines and Landscapes, my first poetic offering of the year, is hopefully as inspiring, as it is, thought provoking ….

But in a more, PROGRESSIVELY EVOLVED Manner, than much that has been happening over the last few weeks …. !!!

From Paris to Nigeria bombings, to, US Madness, of a judicial & violent nature, to the, let’s say, not so evolved rhetoric, coming from the likes of Donald Trump, and his competition for the Whitehouse seat !!!!!

Anyway, from top to bottom, this is now, one of my favourites, and covers much that has occurred, and seemingly continues to occur within the ecology of Human Development …..

Take time with this one folks … !!!!!

because ….

Even if the word, ” Evolvers “, doesn’t actually exist in the Oxford, Posh Dictionary, it’s now, one of MY OWN, and what it’s inspired, reflects on much that happens in this crazy world of ours ….

Everyday …..

BELIEVE IT … !!!!!

And now … Who are the REAL Racists … ???

Some of this is incredibly STUPID, but, some it is also, very interesting, and revealing …..

Ofcourse we should just … “Tolerate” … A poem written by big Virge 17/1/2006

Some things just, NEED to be, RE-ITERATED, or, better still, pointed out to those with good sight, who, STILL CHOOSE, to play blind ….

This is an old piece, reflective of what was once seen as … Great Britain …

Well, as the leaders of this, ” Great Country “, are quick to remind the world of their, “Close Ties”, to America, one would have to wonder how many owners/managers of sports teams, now dominated, in many cases, by, black players …. hold attitudes that are just like the current, hot name in the NBA, who is sadly …. NOT, some fresh talented individual, but the OLD, WRINKLY, Jewish Owner, of the LA Clippers …. Donald Sterling …. !!!!!!

Well, it would seem that, quite a few, Black NBA stars, and managers, “Tolerate”, the likes of Sterling, and his ilk !!!!!

Well, Them, He, and ALL the … Smart-Mouthed, English bwoys, who like to tell men like me to let things go, when it comes to our abuse, mis-treatment & deaths, at the hands of their white brothers …..

They should try to ….. “Tolerate” … THIS … !!!!!

London … has been said …
in a …. ” City Guide ” ….

to be a …

PLACE TO SEE … !!!!!

but …..
You should … ” Recognise ” …

that … prices are … HIGH … !!!
Even for … ” A Short ” … train ride … !!!

EVERYONE … can expect … !!!
to see …. ” Tolerance ” …. !!!!!!!!

Well …….

There are …
Quite a few ways … !!!
To Define … TOLERATE … !!!!!

It can mean …

” ENDURE ” … ” PERMIT ” …
and … ” ALLOW TO EXIST ” …

Further definitions … INCLUDE …

to …..

” Allow to be practised,
without interference,
or, molestation ! ”

We’d …
“better not mention” …

School education …
or problems caused …
because of … “Racism” …

” Some ” …
DO … ” Tolerate ” …

A … ” Foreign Face ” …
but … NOT … Always …
in … ” Respectful Ways ” … !!!

Some Racists … PRETEND …
That we’re … ALL FRIENDS … !?!

But …..
Would … NEVER …
Let … ” A Foreigner ” …

… In Their Bed … !!!!!

If words like those …
cause you …. OFFENCE …. !!!

Try to …
” TOLERATE MATE ” … !!!!!

because ….
I’ve got …. MORE …. !!!
I …. NEED TO SAY …. !!!!!

I Don’t … EXIST … !!!!!
for you to … ” Sit ” …
and just … ” Permit ” …

MY RIGHT … to live … !?!
and …. TOLERATE ….
The things … I say … ?!?

Who told you … ?
to think … THAT WAY … !?!

” So Many ” …. HATE …. !!!
A … ” Darkened Face ” …
and seem to … ” Think ” …
That’s …. NO DISGRACE …. ?!!!?

and is ….. OKAY …… !?!

How can this be … ?
Even … TODAY … !?!?!

From …..

” New Age Slaves ” ….
to …. Yesteryear ….

” MANY BLACKS ” ….
have lived … ” IN FEAR ” … !!!!!
of facing …. ATTACKS …. !!!
that … may bring … TEARS … ?!!!?

When …
MURDERS come …

We Hear …. ” OH DEAR … !!! ”

while words we say …
are … QUICKLY CLAIMED … !!!

to …

” Deserve a place,
penned in, and, caged ! ”

Where ….
We’re … THEN TOLD …

“You’re going to pay !
Your wordplay we,
won’t tolerate !”

South Africans … KNOW …
how … THAT ONE … goes … !!!!!

Mandela was … sent …
To Clearly … ” ROT ” …

DEEP INSIDE … !!!!!! …
A … ” Prison Hole ” … !!!!!

” London ” … can be …
REALLY … COLD … !!!!!!!!

and CLEARLY has …
NO STREETS … of gold … !!!

Unless you … ENTERTAIN …
The … ” Corporate Fold ” …

Well ….
Wherever I go …. !!!

I make it … KNOWN … !!!
by the way I … ” Move ” …

I … ” Tolerate ” … views …
from … ” Racist Crews ” … !!!!!
who clearly … ” Choose ” …
to act like …. i’m ….

Not In …. The Room … ?!?

But ……
Let them …. KNOW ….
Be … ” Cool ” …
and … ” Shrewd ” …

and Try … YOUR BEST …
to … NOT BE … Rude … !!!

and …
DON’T … Presume …
that i’m a …. FOOL …. !!!!!!!!

I’ve been … WELL SCHOOLED … !!!
by …. TRUTHFUL CREWS ….

and …. ” Study ” …. YES ….
” Your ” ….. Daily News …… !!!

BELIEVE ….
in … THIS … !!!

I Know … About You … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t … mess with me …
and i’ll … ” Tolerate ” … you …
and find …. “The few” ….
Who … Clearly choose …
to … see me as …
” A HUMAN ” … too … !!! …

Now …
Governments’ … view …

… ZERO TOLERANCE … !!!!!

is the … ” Best Defence ” … !!!
against … ” Terrorist Sects ” …

Whose words … THEY CLAIM … !!!

Clearly suggest …
A Need for them …
to make … Violent Acts …

But Surely … This …
will cause … Problems … ?!?
when … INNOCENT MEN …
become … ” Victims ” …
of …. ” False Arrest ” ….
and then are … “KEPT” …
for … ” PUNISHMENT ” …
and … ” Torture til’ ” …

They’re almost … DEAD … !!!!!

They say … ” Tolerate ” …
but then … ” DETAIN ” … ?!?

Those whose words …
spread … ” Anger and Hate ” … !!!

They Clearly …
Are Willing … to … ” Tolerate ” …

But ….
Only those …
who … Don’t Complain …

But The …
… Ku Klux Klan …
and …. BNP …. ?!?!?

Have preached … ” Race Hate ” …
since the ….. ” Good Ol’ Days ” ….. !!!!!

But …
STILL EXIST …
Even ….. ” Today ” …… !?!

Does that seem … FAIR … ???

Do You … REALLY CARE … !?!

LET THEM … Say …
what they … WANT TO SAY … !!!

A Pendulum … DOESN’T …
Stop … ” Halfway ” … !!!!!

These … ” Double Standards ” …

“FILL” …. The Air ….

What makes them think … ?
TEMPERS … Won’t Flare … !?!

The air … We Breathe …
WE ALL … should … ” Share ” … !!!!!

I Hope …. You People ….
are …. PREPARED …. !?!?!?!

because …
” Hatred ” … now …
is climbing … Stairs … !!!

Words like … THOSE …
Aren’t meant to … ” Scare ” … !!!

But …. IGNORANCE ….
may take you … ” There ” … ?

” To ” …. THAT PLACE ….
That’s … ” NOT SO GREAT ” … !!!!!

So …. Tolerate …
or … ” Accommodate ” … ?!?

NEITHER … folks …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

” WELCOME’S ” … The word …
That Gets …. ” MY VOTE ” …. !!!

Try … ” Welcoming ” … !!!
with … ” Open Arms ” … !!!

and …
STOP … These Fights … !!!
with … Guns in Palms … !!!!

” Harmony ” …
Breeds … ENERGIES …
That … May just bring … ?

…. ” MORE UNITY ” …. !!!!!!!!!

that helps … more … ” Agree ” …
to … ” Disagree ” … and …

DISMISS ………………. Negativity … !!!!!!!

I’d … LIKE THAT FOLKS … !!!

PLEASE … ” Believe Me ” … !!!

Truthfully … and … Honestly … !!!!!

But ….
Clearly … ” Peace ” …
may now be ….. Lost …………………..

To … ” Society’s Streets ” …

NO UNITY …
for …. ” Humanity ” …. !!!

Those who choose …
to … TOLERATE … That …
have minds … Now Lost …
and … Eternally … “TRAPPED” … !!!!!

I’m a … PEACEFUL MAN …
but … I’ll be … DAMNED … !!!!!

before i’d let …
Racists … ATTACK …
and … Not Attempt …
to … FORCE THEM BACK … !!!!!!

God …

Gave Me … LIFE …
for me to … LIVE … !!!

Let me …
” Take You Back ” ………
to my … First Page …

TOLERATE …. Can mean …

” ALLOWED ” … to exist …

So Who … ??? …

” Oversees ” … THIS … !?!

Those who’d like …
to see blacks … ” LYNCHED ” … ?!?

Does … ” White Supremacy ” …
STILL ………… ” Exist ” …………. ?!?

BELIEVE …. if you like …
DISMISS …. if you don’t …

Slave Masters … CLEARLY …
STILL …… “Have Hold” ……
of …. Many Blacks ….
Who’ve Lost … ” Their Souls ” … !!!!!

Blacks who … ” Choose ” …
To Take …. ” Black Lives ” ….
are WORSE … Than Racists … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who are ….. ” White ” ……

London Lights ….
Do Still … SHINE BRIGHT … !!!

While Blacks …. STILL DIE ….
from …… STUPID FIGHTS ……. !!!!!!!!!

“So, listen black !
Don’t even try !
Killing each other,
is just not right !
Whoever you kill,
had a Black Mother !”

Would You … Want YOURS … ?
to lose you … over …

” POINTLESS WARS ” … ?!!!?

You …
NEED TO ………… Take A ………………….

PAUSE ………………………………………………………

and …. HELP THE CAUSE …. !!!!!!!!!

Use … YOUR BRAIN … !!!!!
and … Stake a … CLAIM … !!!

Show … LOVE and …. ” Patience ”

It’s … EASY to … ” Hate ” …
But … HARD to … TRUST … !!!!!

So ….
Do Your … BEST …
to …. riSE ABOVE ….

Those who … CLAIM …

………… to ………..

….. ” Tolerate ” …..
