” Apocalyptic Times ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 31/7/2007

This Poem seems rather appropriate right now !

As I am currently residing in the Caribbean, these words are RINGING …
A Little TOO TRUE ….. Sadly …. !!!!

These rhymes … Reflect …
APOCALYPTIC Times … !!!

Times where minds …
are …………… Dismissing ………………………………………….. Signs …… !!!!!

That times ahead …..
Will see … BLOODSHED …
and … Loss of Life … !!!!! …

Times where … Crimes …
Refine … Bloodlines … !!!!!!

Like … ” Old Designs ” …
Primed to … ” Div-id-e ” …

Apocalyptic … times …
Reside inside …
Deep Seas with … ” Tides ” …
Now On … The rISE …
Just like … The Minds …
of … WICKED … Types … !!!!!!
whose Pride … DENIES …
to help the … ” Plight ” …
of those who … STRIVE …
Just to … ” Survive ” …
and Live a … ” Good Life ” …

The Type … who like …
to see us … Fight …
Like … ” Dogs in Bogs ” …
Fed On … WAR Songs …
and Words of … HATE … !?!

A Time and Place …
where … Technological Tools …
are used to … School …
our youth to … Abuse …
Like … VIOLENT Fools … !!!!!

VIOLENCE … Will Rule … !!!

Like DEVILS … Who …
Infuse with … Views …
That … Lead to … FEUDS … !!!

Which would … You Choose … ?!?

APOCALYPTIC … News … ?
or a place where … ” Love ” …

REIGNED … Up Above … !!!!!!

Just like … SUNSHINE …
in the … ” Summertime ” …

Well ….
Rhymes Like … ” These ” …
Paint … Different … scenes …

Scenes … OBSCENE … !!!!!
and ……. Far From …………………………………………………Clean … !!!!

Where ….
Peoples’ Dreams …
are … “FILLED WITH” … SCREAMS … !!!

Am I …. SCARING You … ?!?

If so … Not Cool … !!!

Why would you choose … ?
to take … The View …
That … What I Say …
Makes You … AFRAID … ?!?!?

Apocalyptic Trips …
May Well …. ECLIPSE … !!!

The Place in which …

Your Thinking ….. ” Lives ” ……

OUTSIDE … “TheBox” …
is where … Mine Is … !!!!!!

NOT IN …. ” Laptops ” ….
or …. VIOLENT … Stings … !!!

I Deal with … NOW …
and what … Surrounds …
Before i’m … CLOWNED …
and end up … “Drowned” … !!!!!

Or …
Worse yet … DEAD …
Like … Youthful Heads …
As … ” Current Trends ” …
would now … ” Suggest ” …

In Fact …. CONFIRM …. !!!!!!

Does it make you …
…….. ” Squirm …….. ? ”
to Read … Such words … !?! …

Well …….

Here’s a … ” Verse ” …
to … CALM … Your Nerves … !!!

They’re ONLY … ” Words ” … !!!!!!

That show … CONCERN …
About the world …
and how … it turns …

If we … ” Observe ” …
We may just … ” Learn ” …
How to … STEM This … SURGE … !!!
of Pain and … Hurt … !!!!!!

and make a … RETURN …
to Life being … PRESERVED … !!!!!

Let The DEVILS … Burn ……………………………………………….

and Make … PEACE WORK … !!!!!

Like … UNITY …
cos’ things like … ” These ” …
Will Help … ” Relieve ” ……………………………

Our Streets of … BEASTS … !!!
And …. ” POVERTY ” ….

And …. News Stories …
of … KILLING Sprees … !!!?!!!

Our Youth … are DYING …

Don’t You … SEE … ?!!!? …

These words are … TRYING …
to FEED … Our Seeds …
with … Something MORE …
Than ……. ” MTV ” …….. !!!!!!!!!!

BUT ….
Here’s The … SCORE … !!!

Too Many … ” Elders ” … TOO … !?!
are PROMOTING …. Wars ……
WITHOUT …. A Cause …. !!!?!!!

and NEED TO … ” Reduce ” …
Their … ANGRY … Moods … !!!

” Don’t try to front ! ”

” You know it’s true ! ”

Why take the view
that I’m … TOO BLUNT … ?!?

The time has … COME …
to …. ” Listen Up ” ……
and Fill …. ” Eardrums ” …
Like Kweli’ … Does … !!!

with words that … ” Soothe ” …………………….
and HELP … ” Improve ” …
The Minds who … ” Choose ” …

APOCALYPTIC … Moves … !!!!!

Like …
Dropping …. BOMBS …
That Breed … ” Phantoms ” …
and …. ” Tsunamis ” …. !!! ….

Do you ….
Get The …. ” Scene ” …. ???

NO TREES ….
NO LEAVES ….

NO …
Ice Caps left ….

Just …. WAR and DEATH … !!!!!

I Guess …. ?
to … ” Most of You ” …

This seems ……………………………………………………. ” Far Fetched ” ……

But …
THINK IT …. Through ……

What’s coming …. ” Next ” …. ?!?

FLOODING … Here …
and Flooding … THERE … !!!!

and then …. HEATWAVES …. !!!
that send … SHOCKWAVES … !!!

As Fires … BLAZE …
For …. DAYS and DAYS …. !!!!!

APOCALYPTIC …. Yes … !!!

So ….
What do you say … ?

Does THIS Poem …
and it’s … Wordplay …
Make … You Think …

I NEED A … ” Shrink ” … ?!?

Maybe … I DO … ???

But here’s the … ” Koo’ ” …

Apocalyptic things ….
ARE …… Happening …… !!!!!

CLOSER … to home …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!!!

Most folk … are BROKE … !!!
Or … SNORTING … Coc’ … !!!

With ….
NOWHERE … to go …
to find some … ” Hope ” … !!!

” OH I’M A PESSIMIST ! ”

” If You Insist ! ”

I’m simply …

writing things …
Through … ” Poetic Scripts ” …

That … Reflect how …

I Feel …
Right NOW …

Some Music … ” FILLED ” ……..
My Mind with …. THIS ….

Thoughts of … GLOOM …
and MUCH … “Darkness” … !!!!!

A … ” Discreet Flava ” …
DARKER THAN … ” Vader ” … !!!

Try to …. DENY …
and you … ” May Find ” …

That ….
What You … FIGHT …
Inside … ” Your Mind ” …

is the ….

TRUTH About ………
What’s ….. Coming …..

” Apocalyptic Times “

“Just To Get Paid !!!” … A Poem written by Big Virge 30/9/2006

What would you do ?
just to … get paid … ?

Make … “Shady Moves” … !?!
or …. ” ENTERTAIN ” …. !!! ….

Well … it seems nowadays … ???
That … Many Try … !!! …
by … ” Playing The Game ” … of …

“I’ll comply, with,
Anything and Everything !!!
Please, just ensure,
that I get through doors,
that make sure, that,
I won’t be poor !!!!!”

That’s … The Score …
with … ” Money Whores ” … !!!

Men and Women …
Even … Kids …
are used just like …

” Recycling Bins ” … !!!!!

Too Many …. to name ….
Who … ” Play The Game ” …

Just For …. ” Glamour ”
” Glitz … and … Fame ” … !!!!!

” Or ” …. as some say ….
Just To … ” Get Paid ” … !!!!!

I guess that’s how … ?
” The Story ” … goes … ?!?

” Money Makes,
People, LIE DOWN !!!!! ”

Just like … “Those” …
who well … YOU KNOW … !!!

Stake … “The Claim” …
that they are … ” PRO’s ” … !!!

“Some” …. Host shows ….
on ……. ” Radio ” ……..

“Others” …. make ….
” THOSE VIDEOS ” … !!!!! …

The type that … PROVES …
They’ll … Lay Down … FLAT … !!!!!
just to …. ” Accrue ” ….

A STACK …
of … Cash … !!!!!

I’ve seen … ” A Few ” …
and that’s a … ” FACT ” … !!!!

You’ve seen em’ … TOO … !!!
On ……… MTV …….. !!!!!! …..

Were you thinking …. ?

” PORNOGRAPHY ” … !?!?!

Come on now …
… PLEASE … !!!!!!!

Your thoughts
… CLEARLY … !!! ..

are quite … UNCLEAN … !!!!!

Just like … THOSE …
who’ll … ” Tow The Line ” …
to get piece of ……

The … ” Devils Pie ” …

“Cash Hungry” … Types …
who’ll … “Sell Their Souls” …
Just to …. ” REACH ” ….

…. ” Financial Goals ” ….

It’s like … Their Life …
can be … ” Defined ” … ?!?
by … ” Corporate Types ” …
Who … ” SET ” … The Price … !!!

It’s CLEAR … we’re still …
in … ” SLAVERY TIMES ” … !!!!!

Do The Strong … ?
….. SURVIVE ….. ?!? …..

………… Or ……….. ?????

Do Weak Ones’ … ?
…… THRIVE …… !?! …..

These days ….
These questions …

” Enter Minds ” ….

Who make … “Selections” …
…… WAY OUTSIDE ….. !!!!!!!!!!!!

Boxes … NOW FILLED …
with those … ” Inclined ” …
to … Show some … THIGH … !!!

If the …..
” Price is Right ” … !!!!!

Women and Guys ….
who have … ” Weak Wills ” …
will … fall in line …
to pay their … bills …

The question is … ?!?

Would YOU … do this … ?

” OR ” ………. would I … ???

Well …
These days … I Might … !?!

HELL YEAH … !!! …
That’s Right … !!!!!

Let me …
” Think about that !?! ” ………..

Did I write … That Line … ?!?

You see …. ” Sometimes ” ….
WE ALL … have times …
where … Cash Becomes …
The Thing …. ” We Love ” ….

“If I had cash !?!
I’d Pimp, My Ride !!!”

“If I had, Her Cash !?!
I’d Party, ALL NIGHT !!!”

Ask yourself … THIS … ?
Do you want … ” That Life ” … ?!?

Where some …..
Will want to … TAKE … !!!!!
EVERYTHING … in … ” Your Place ” … !!!!
and … ” ENVY ” … You … !!!!!

Do you think that’s … COOL … ?!?

There’s a …
” Price To Pay ” …
for … BIG BUCKS …
and …. ” FAME ” ….

You may find … These Days …
that it’s … NOT … So Great … !!?!!

When you see … Your Face …
It’ll be …. ” THE SAME ” …. !!!!!

and … ” Surgery ” … Can’t change …
The Blood … ” IN YOUR VEINS ” … !!!!!

” CHOICES ” … you make …
May well …. DICTATE ….

How Happy … you are …
in your …. ” FINAL DAYS ” ….

Money Can’t … SAVE YOU … !!!
from ….. ” YOURSELF ” ….. !!!!!!!!!

It’s a path … Many Choose … !!!
But … Don’t Be … FOOLED … !!!!

Money won’t make …
People … LIKE YOU … !!!

It’s …
How you … LIVE … !!!!!
and the things … You Do …
that in … ” The End ” …
WILL ….. ” Define You ” …..

All the … Money you make …
Doesn’t … Make you … great … !!!!!

” These Days ” …..

There’s … SO MUCH MORE … !!!
….. ” AT STAKE ” ….. !!!!! …..

Like … ” Finding Love ” …
in a world of … HATE … !!!!!

We Need to …
” FEED Young Brains ” … !!! …
As Well … as … ENTERTAIN … !!!!!

and Dispense with … ” HATE ” …
on the basis of …. ” Race ” …. !!!!!

It seems … ” These Days ” …
that … My Style of … Wordplay …

Isn’t … deemed to be worthy …
of a …. ” Minimum Wage ” …. ?!!!?

But ….
That’s OKAY … !!!!!

when I reach … “Old Age” …

I’ll be …
Proud to say … !!!

That I Didn’t … COMPROMISE … !!!

” My Love ” …
for …. THE ART …

Just to be a … ” Pop Star ”

Or … For RICHES …
Or … For FAME ….

There’s …..
SO MUCH MORE … to this … !!!!! …
than … ” Writing Scripts ” …

” Just to …. Get Paid !!! ”
