There … HAS TO BE … !!!

A … ” Better ” … Way … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A ….. BETTER WAY …… !!!!!

Than how we’re … ” Living ” …
……. ” Nowadays ” ……. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO … Forgiving …
Minds … Dis-placed …

Thinking Things …
That … Lead to … HATE … !?!

Drug Induced …
cos’ … That’s The … ” Juice ” …
That … New Age Crews …
are now … Into … !!! …

OTHERS … Too … !!!
Now think it’s … ” Cool ” … ?

To … Live their lives …
HIGH ON …. Denial … ?!?

There … HAS TO BE … !!!
A … Better Way … !!!

To … Nurture Seeds …
Inside … ” Our Brains ” …

MORE ….
Depth of Mind … !!!

WITHOUT … The Lines …
May … Help you … MORE …
I Think … You’ll Find … !?!

Less … thought of war …
MORE …. Thoughts of Peace …

MORE … Thoughts of Warmth …
Less … coldness PLEASE … !!! …

Turn down … ” fallacies ” …
So that … we can … SPEAK …
About the things … we all …

…….. Believe ………

Lessa … dividing … !!!
and … colliding … !!!

MORE … Combining …
Those who … STAND …
for MORE Than … Grands …

So that … We Can …
Build … SOLID Plans …
That PROTECT … Our Lands …
From … ” Harmful ” … Hands … !!!!!

UNITE … Humans …
From … DIFFERENT Strands …

” The Game’s ” … to … PLAY
NOT … Desecrate … !!!!! …

It’s … NOT OKAY … !!!
To … HATE A … ” Race ” …
because they … Move …
Differently … to YOU … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A … ” Better Way ” …

Come On …
It’s TRUE … !!!!!

Just ….
THINK It … Through …

Less fights ………………………………………………………. in sight …….
Would be …. ALRIGHT …. !!! ? !!!

and may … HELP You …
Feel … SAFE at Night … !?!

Unless you’re … COOL …
with life … These Days …

If you are … OKAY … !!!

But let’s get things … STRAIGHT … !!!
Things are NOT … Okay Today … !!!!!!!!!

RISING … Hate …
cos’ life’s a … STRAIN … !!!

Less … Youthful veins …
Than … WEBSITE NAMES … !?!

MORE LIES … than … ” Faith ”
MORE … Killers today …
Than … DINNERS On … Plates … !!!

MORE Laws than … ” States ” …
MORE Whores than … ” Babes ” …

MORE … Silicone Bits …
Than … BIG OL’ … Dicks … !!!!

SEE …..
These are things …
That … Make me … THINK … !?!

There … HAS TO BE …
BETTER WAYS …. to live … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and YES … Okay …
A …. BETTER WAY … !!!

It’s just … Wordplay …
at the … End of the Day …

But …
THINK About …
The things I … Say …

And ….
Things now …. FOUND …
to be … DISPLAYED …
by people … “Bound” …
by … what they … FACE …
in Todays … ” New Age ” …

A world … WITHOUT …
Millions of … Pounds …

EXCEPT for … ” Those ” …
Who … Gave them roles …
that fed … ” False Hope ” …
and … ” Ropes for ” … DOPES … !!!!!

On which to … CHOKE … !!!!!!

Okay … THAT Quote …
May ROCK … Some Boats …
But … NOT in ways …
That … Systems SHAKE … !!!

Systems … ” Built ” …
to CONTROL … Wills …
and … LOCK THEM … “down” …
Like … MANY Now … !!! …

MANY … MORE …
Than … Years before … !!!

So Now the … HOARDS …
APPLAUD … ” The Cause ” …

But REALLY … ” aren’t sure ” … ?!?
What they’re … Clapping For … !?!

Because they … ” Choose ” …
to … AIR … The View …

That ……

“Everything’s cool, but i’m feeling you !”

“If you’re feeling me ?
Do something dude,
and face what’s true !
Then maybe we,
can see less bleed,
and more succeed in
finding peace !”

Less room for … “greed” …
and … “Fallacies” …

MORE SPACE for … Plates …
and … Equality …

So that … ONE DAY …
We ALL … Can Feed …

” Our Family ” …..

HUMANITY ….. !!!

I speak sometimes …
Within … my rhymes …

About … UNITY …
But right now it’s … EQUALITY …
I’m trying to … GET … !!!

cos’ it …. seems to me …

If … I’ve got … ONE …
and You’ve got … ONE …

What we fighting for … ?!?
We’re both still … POOR … !!!

Did …
That Line …. STUN … !?!

Were you thinking … GUN … ?!?

See ….
That’s the thing ….

It’s our … ” Thinking ” …
That … NEEDS TO … Equate …

So that Balance is … DISPLAYED …
in … ALL OUR WAYS … !!! …

Now that’s … PRETTY DEEP …
EVEN for … Me … !!!!!

“Whoa, now i’m SCARED !”

So I think that’s where …
I’ll let … My Pen …
Now Find … The End …

MORE TIME for … Patience ………
Less spent on … ” Ignorance ” … !!!!!

MORE … Upliftment … !!!!!
Less time for … “despair” …

MORE … Commitment … !!!!!
Less … “I Don’t Care” …

Less thoughts of … “Hate” …
and division of … Race … !!!!!

Less …
LUST for … ” Fame ” …
and a … ” Blinged’ Out ” … Range … !!!!!

What More … can I say … ?
Well … LESS … Gun Play … !!!

Cos’ there … HAS TO BE …

” A BETTER WAY ” ……. !!!!!!!

” 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 “

“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 ……. !!!!!

One.

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

Well, on the basis of much that is revealed in the documentary posted below ……

“Britains Forgotten Slave Owners” …..

It would seem fair to say, that there are and continue to be some…

EXTRAORDINARY … Double Standards, from a monetary perspective, ALONE ….

But, here are a few more, that are clearly, NOT, figments of black folks imagination, or, ” Chips on our Shoulders ” …..

“Yo, for my anger settle,
Man give me a treble !
Wait, i’ve got to mingle
So, give me a single
in fact, i’ll take a double
cos’ this may start trouble !”

All these … ” Double Standards ” …
are getting me angered …

From Lawrence to Walker …
to … Christopher Alder ,,,

it seems some … English People …
Can’t deal …. with … The Evil .. !!!
that … ” Lurks ‘ … in their house … !!!

when they get … ” Found Out ” … !!!!!!!

We blacks … should … ” Shut Mouths ” … ?!?
and … NOT … speak about …
The way we get treated …
in … ” Some ” … English Towns … !!!!!

or speak of our … ” LOSSES ” … !?!
because of … White Bosses …
who’ve got … EVERY RIGHT … !?!
to … Dismiss … our plight …
of fighting … for lives …

when police ….
SHINE THEIR LIGHTS … !!!!!

or keep us … “in the dark” … ?
About …. Monkey Chants …. !!!
while Black soldiers … DIE …

On … Police Station Floors … !!!

They’d rather …. ” Deny ” ….
how we’re … Treated like … WHORES … !!!
and … left on … ALL FOURS …
while THEY … have a laugh …
in stations and … Courts … !!!!!

The standards … ” They Have ” …
DON’T … Add up … like Math … !?!

They’d … ” Rather Not ” … Hear … !!!
about the …. ” Veneers ” …
Behind … “Cover Ups” …
that … EXPOSES STUFF …

About …
Just How … ” low ” …
” Their Standards ” … can go … !!!!!!

EXCUSES … Excuses …
and YES … MORE … EXCUSES … !!!?!!!

are what they … ” Provide ” …
to cover their … ” Looseness ” … !!!

“All people do wrong !”

is their NEW … ” Hot Song ” … !!!

All This … while … ” Trayvons’ ” …
are Lost … due to shots …
from … Zimmerman Bods’ … !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Of course we should Massa’ !
Let’s erase those chapters !”

See i’m down with … The Man …
….. ” Lilian Thuram ” ……

So …
Take the stance … THAT …

” Double Standards ” … Land …
in the laps of … Clans …
who stand next to … ” Racists ” …
in ………. Various Places ………. !!!!!!

But … WON’T …
Get on the … Faces …
of those who spread … HATRED … !!!!!!

I wonder … ” Sometimes ” … ?
whether they … ” Recognise ” …

Or ….
Take time to … THINK ….
About …… ANYTHING ……

Beyond ………………………………… Their Kin …. ?!!!?

It’s CLEAR Most ……… DON’T … !!!!!
and … Won’t … ” Rock The Boat ” …
when … “within” … ” Their Folk ” …

They hear … subtle jokes …
that … EXPOSE … Attitudes …
with … ” Racist Styled Views ” … !!!!!

How many … make … FEUDS ?
within … their own crews … ?

It seems there … Aren’t Many … !?!
who … TRULY … are … ” Ready ” …
to REALLY … say something …

They’d rather do … NOTHING … !!!!!

and be … YES … Complicit …
with those … Who Are … RACIST … !!!!!

but are … QUICK … to run lines
and wanna … Start Fights …
with blacks who … AREN’T SHY … !!!!!

to … Speak on … Their Crimes …
and … Bring them to … LIGHT … !!!!!

The question is …. WHY …. ???

Their standards seem … ” Doubled ” … !?!
when their feathers get … ” Ruffled ” … !!!!

It’s Clear … They get … ” TROUBLED ” … !!!
and just … WILL NOT BE … “humbled” …

I’ve said it before … !!!
I’ll say it again … !!!

It’s like Mos’ Def’ … said …

“When they do it well,
It’s seen as success !
When we do it well
It’s seen as suspect !”

But ….. ???
Who are … ” Suspect ” … ?!?
when their standards .. are … CHECKED … !?!

It’s time to … INSPECT …
and let ME … Cut The Deck … !!!

I ain’t from … Wu Tang … !!!
but … Know about … ” Klans ” …
and … IGNORANT Gangs … !!!
who STILL … ” Take The Stance ” …

That …

Immigrants cause ….
Their countrys’ … ” Downfall ” …

So Let’s … ” Double Check ” …
and get this … ” Correct ” …

When they … ” Move Around ” …
across …. Different Towns ….

On YES … Foreign Grounds …

Does their …. ” Migration ” …. ?
or ……………. IMMIGRATION …… !?!

Make for …. Better Nations …. ?????

when how they get … ” Stationed ” …
seems to bear ……. ” NO RELATION …… ?!?

to … Living in … SQUALOR … ?!?
and … Begging … for Dollars …
or … Begging for … ” Pounds ” … !?!

That’s … REALLY … NOT HOW …
They seem to ….. ” Get Down ” ….. !?!

Do They … FEAR POLICE … ?
when They .. walk the streets … ?
” Upon ” …. Foreign Shores …. ?

Or … Live like the … POOR … ?!?

Their standards … Stay … HIGH … !!!
wherever they ………. ” LIE ” ………..

Of course I meant … ” LAY ” … !!!

But in the …. U.K.
Immigrants … AREN’T OKAY … !!!
and should … YES ………………………………………………….. PLAY AWAY …….

UNLESS …. They will play …
in ways that …. Display ….

A wish to … “CONFORM” …

and NOT … Kick Up A Storm … !!!

when how they are treated …
is …. ” Racism Born ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

I … ” Double Up ” …
My Standards …

So that …
They stay … HIGH … !!!

and … WILL NOT … !!!
have … ” Handlers ” …
Decide …. How I ride …. !!!

and … DON’T KEEP ….
” Whoring Types ” …

Standing ……
By my … side … !!!

and DON’T … “hide behind lies” …
or ……. ” Ignorant Pride ” …….. !!!!!!!!

cos’ it’s now … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

” Some ” … FORGET … Their Manners …
and seem to be ….. ” Hampered ” …..

when it comes to them … SEEING …

How they … “HOLD” …

…… ” Double Standards ” ……

because ………..
……………………….

My Silence … means …

that i’m …
counting …………
to …… THREE …… !!!

Instead of … Reaching …
for a …. ” Piece ” …. !!!!
That signifies … THAT …….

I want to … SEE … !!!
You lying … FLAT … !!!
Unable to … “breathe” … !!!!!

A Test that’s … REAL … !!!!!

So …..
How would … YOU FEEL … ?!?
if you were … TOLD … !!!
to … ” Go Back Home ” … !!!

….. when ….. ?!?

Your … “Home” … is a place …
where your ….. ” Black Face ” …..
is taken for a … ” THREAT ” …
EVERY … single day … !?! …

or taken for a … ” Joke ” …
as mine was … ” Today ” …

Would you … ” Play It Cool ” … ?
Like The … ” Uncle Toms’ ” … Do … !?!

Or …
Would you … Choose … ?
to … ” Take Abuse ” … !?!?!
from some white … ” FOOL ” … !!!
whose moves are … CRUDE … !!!

Like … ” Selling Coke ” …
to … ” Mis-Guided ” … Youth … !!!

The type of … ” White Bloke ”
who thinks he’s … ” Smooth ” …

I know a … ” Few Brothers ”
who showed this … SUCKER … !!!
what it is … to be … STRESSED … !!!!!
and … Face the … TEST …
of being …. ” DISTRESSED ” …. !!!!! ….

He Didn’t … ” Fare Well ” … !!!
Like … ” Many ” … Nowadays … !!!

cos’ … Stress Now … SWELLS … !!!
in … ” Different Ways ” …

From … Violent Crime … !!!
to … Financial Plights …
That leave … ” Wise Guys ” …

” Feeling ” ……
NOT SO WISE … !!!!!
when investments made …

Don’t Make … ” The Grade ” … !!!

That’s a test … THEY FAILED … !!!!
Like The …… ” Holy Grail ” ….. !!!!!!!

because … ONLY … ” Wise Heads ” …
in the end … ” PREVAIL ” … !!!!!

All that … GLITTERS …
May mean … ” JAIL ” … !!!!!

“Gary” …. NOW KNOWS … !!!
that … ” Going Gold ” …
Doesn’t … Save Your Soul …
or … Provide … ” Bail ” … !!!!

Too Many … ” Young Blacks ” …
KNOW … How that goes … !!! …

DNA Tests … !!!
are causing … STRESS … !!!!!!!!
and giving … ” Some Heads ” …

Quite A … ” COMPLEX ” … !!!!!!

“It’s for defence !!!”

is what is … ” Said ”
just like … The Wars …
on … ” Foreign Shores ” … ?!?

“Some peeps” … Still Believe … !?!
that ….. Soldiers fought ……
for …. ” Freedom of Speech ” …. ?!?

“Freedoms” … ORDAINED … !!!!!
for peeps’ … like … ” ME ” … !?!

To Feed … young brains …
with …. ” Poetry ” ….
that speaks about ….

….. ” REALITY ” …..

Well … Reality Tests …
Weak-hearted … men … !!!!!!

Like … The One … mentioned
In THIS … ” Poem ” … !!!!!!!!! …

“Him” … and … ” His Friends ”
are …. ALL …. ” Cokeheads ” …. !!!!!

“Freedom” … for them …
is something … ” Showered ”
in Chemical …… ” Powder ”

” Freedom ” … for me …
Ain’t So ….. Easy ….. !!!!!!

because my speech
Does … NOT … agree
with … ” Cokehead ” … sheep …
who … ” Crawl ” … and … creep … !!!
because they’re …. ” Weak ” …. !!!!!

They … try to … CHEAT … !!!
.…….. ” REALITY ” ………. ?!?!?

But …
” Cheaters ” … Never Pass …
They Fail … before they start … !!!

Stress has marked …
…. ” The Card ” ….
of those … CLAIMING …
… ” They’re Smart ” …

cos’ …
” Smart Mouths ” … Talk …
before their …. ” FALL ” …. !!!

REAL HARD … fa sure … !!!!!!!!!!

” So that’s why they snort !?!?!? ”

So that … ” Their Nose ” …
Doesn’t feel … ” The Blow ” … !!!!!
when they … ” Fall Short ” …
of …. ” Standing Tall ” …..

Standing up to … ” The Test ” …
of … Dealing with … STRESS …

These days … it’s … TOUGH
cos things are …. ” ROUGH ” ….

So ….
What do you … ” Use ” … ?
to get you … ” Through ” … ?!?

Well … Some Resort …
as I said … Before …
to having a … SNORT … !!!
behind … ” Toilet Doors ” …
To Ease … Their Cause … ?!? …

Others’ … choose to …
” HURL ” … ABUSE … !!!

because … ” Their Views ” …
Leave them … ” Confused ” … ?!?

Of course …
There are … ” THOSE ” …
who resort to … BLOWS … !!!!!

which … just goes to show …
How … STRESS … Can lead You …
Down …… ” DARK ROADS ” ……

These days … I Write …
to … ” Ease ” … My Mind …
and … ” Ease ” … My Stress …
when I get …. ” TENSE ” …. !!!!!

because …
” Ignorant Heads ” ….
Breed …. ” VIOLENCE ” …. !!!!!!!

” Peace ” …
is … The Vibe …
with which … I Ride … !!!

But …

Let me just … STRESS … !!!
That … ” Self Defence ” …
is where my … ” calmness ” …
Meets it’s ….. END …… !!!!!!!!

You see …
It Wouldn’t … Be Wise … !!!
To … Make me … FIGHT … !!!

cos’ i’m a … ” Peaceful Guy ”
but when you … LOOK IN MY EYES …

You should …. ” REALISE ” ….
I’m NOT … ” Scared to DIE ” … !!!!!

You see …
STRESS … is a … ” Test ” …
That is …. ” Complex ” …..

and … Can be … HARD … !!!
for us all … to … PASS … !!!!!

In times like … ” These ”
We … NEED TO … Feed
our minds with … ” MORE ”
than … talk of … ” WAR ”
and … ” Crossing Swords ”

” Agree to Disagree ” … !!!

or just … ” DON’T SPEAK ” … !!!!!

Use Violence … LESS … !!!!!
and … Keep a … ” Cool Head ” …

and you’ll have a …

” STRONG DEFENCE ” … !!!

Against ….

” The Test of Stress ”

“Let’s Get Things Straight” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/2/2006

A report ….
I’ve read … today …
has left me … feeling …
Quite … AMAZED … !!!!!

Forces Types … who have …
… ” Some Stripes ” …
Appear to … Take …
Drugs like … COCAINE … ?!?

or ….
“Other Drugs” … classed …
as … YES … ” Class A ” … !!!!!

Well once they’re of …
A … ” Certain ” … rank … !!!

In an …
EXCEPTIONAL … Circumstance … !!!

are … NOT … to be told
They’ve … GOT TO GO … !!!

The ideas being … ” Sold ” …
they should get … REHAB … !!!!!

and then kept on
when assessed to be …
…… ” STRONG ” ….. !!!?!!

Now don’t get me wrong
But ……….. ??? ………..

What’s up with that plan …. !!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!

Are … drug dealers … ?!?
Inside … Their Camps … !!!!!

” Offering ”
Speed … Cocaine …
and …. CRACK …. !!! ….

are they … people …
they now … Enlist … ?!?

If you want
… The List …
Try … ” M.I.6. ” …

They seem to … “Hold” …
” The Keys ” … to all this …

and …..
Over The Years …
Have Given …
” Young Kids …

” This Type ”
of … FIX … !?!

“Who’s up for ?
Some L.S.D. ?!?”

“Come on sarge !
Stop teasing me !
It helps me deal,
with things I see !!!”

But … later on …
when that life’s … ” Gone ” …
they … CANNOT SLEEP … !!!!!!!
because of … BAD VISIONS … !!!!!
in their ……. ” Dreams ” …….

” Apocalypse Now ” …
Proved This … to me …

Well … like … ALI … !!!!!

They’d better …
….. BELIEVE ….. !!!!!!
I’ll NEVER … join …
…… Their ……

” Drugged ” … armies … !!!!!

No wonder … A Wealth …
have … KILLED … themselves … !!!

The Drugs …
They’re … FED … !!!!!
” Affect ” … mental health … !!!

They’ve seen …..
BLOODSHED … !!!!

and lose their … ” Friends …
and do this ….. for …… ?
These … ” Government Men ” …
who watch … This Stuff …
on … ” News at Ten ” … ?!!!?

They should … Present …
THE DEAD … to … THEM … !!!!!

Leave them … Lying …
in ….. ” Their Beds ….. !!!!!

I bet they’d … QUICKLY …
LOSE …” Their Heads ” … !!!!!

This simply … Proves …
They … ” USE and ABUSE ” …
and …. Send Forces …
Once … ” Drug Induced ” … ?!?

These days … ” The News ” …
leaves me … ” Confused ” … ?

“DRUGS ARE BAD … !!!!!
DRUGS ARE BAD … !!!!!”

“Except for” … CELEBS …
and OUR … ” Army Lads ” … !?!

So … what about … ” Blacks ” … ?
Who … ” They Say ” …
…. SELL CRACK …. !!!!!

There’s CLEARLY … A NEED … !!!
in …. ” Forces Camps ” …. !!!!! ….

Would our officials … ?
Sanction … THAT … !!?!!

That could be
A NEW … ” Rehab Scheme … ?!?

” Crack Dealing ” … CRIMINALS … !!!
” Supplying ” … Our SENTINELS … !!!

Isn’t that … CREDIBLE … ?!?

They’d kill two birds
with … Crack and Speed … !!!

Keep the … ” Dealers ” …
Off …. Our Streets …. !!!!!!!!
and use … REHAB TEAMS …
Like … ” Property ” …
Make a … THRIVING …
…… INDUSTRY ……. !!!!

One that … could take …
” Squaddies ” … money … !!!!

Then … of course …

A KNIGHTHOOD …
….. for me ….. !!!!!!!

for … Contributions ….
to … CHEMISTRY …
and Policies for … HEALTH …
and ……. COMMUNITIES ……. !!!!!

THANK YOU … That’s Great … !!! …
but … ” LET’S GET THINGS STRAIGHT ” …

Who on earth … ?!?
Thinks it’s … OKAY …

to send … forces to war
when they’re … Quite Sure …
of … DRUGS … They Take … !?!

” Chemical ” … weeds …
and other … ” Class A ” … !!!

Pete Doherty …..
should be sent … with …

….. ” SPEED ” ….. !!!!!!

Into … Iraq …
and … Afghanistan … !!!!!

If he didn’t fight …
They’d be … Alright … !!!!!

because … ” His Squadron ” …
would just get … ” HIGH ” … !!!!!!

They’d do a … ” Better Job ‘ …
than the … U.N. … lot … !!!!!

It’s a CRAZY … plot … !!! …
but … “Doch” … Would ROCK … !!!!!

Don’t get me wrong … !!!
He’s Got … ” Problems ” … !!!

He’s faced … The Courts ..
but … of course … GOT OFF … !?!

because … “They Say” …

” He NEEDS … Re-hab …
and should write …
…. more songs … !!! ”

But the … M.O.D. … ?
What’s their … EXCUSE … !?!

for … The masses …
….. Paying Tax ….. !!!
for soldiers … ” REHAB ” … ?!?

Don’t know … about you …
but I take …. ISSUE …. !!!
with … paying for … THAT …
and the war in … Iraq … !!!!!

Now … this is why … ?
I’m a little bit … MAD …

Another report …
in the news … Today …
Has … Relayed … that …

Officials … say …

“It’s time for a … CHANGE … !!!
Let’s REDUCE … Sentences
for ….. ” A.B.H. ” ….. !!!?!!!”

Specifically … Those …
of … ” Lesser Displays ” …

“COMMUNITY SENTENCES”

and no more days …
of being sent to jail … for …

“ACTUAL BODILY HARM !!!”

Even … ” MAGISTRATES ” … !!!
are ….. DEAD AGAINST ….. !!!!!

” Reducing ” …
PUNISHMENT …
For ….. “ABH” ….. !!!!!

and I have to … AGREE … !!!

If someone tried …
” Attacking ” … ME … !!!
and was then … SET FREE … ?!?
in the …. COMMUNITY …. !!!

I have to say
i’d feel … ” AGRIEVED ” … !!!!!

What kind of … PENALTY … !?!
is … CLEANING THE STREETS … !!!!!

Government Policies …
are … CLEARLY … CRAZY … !!!!!

A.B.H. …..
is a form of … ASSAULT … !!!!!

Need I say …
… ANYMORE … !!!!!

If they can’t …
Control … BRAWLS … !!!!!

Who’s … REALLY …
….. AT FAULT ….. !!!!!

Instead of …
Waging Wars …
on …. ” Foreign Shores ” ….

They should try ….
ENFORCING … Laws … !!!!!

On … ” BRITISH STREETS ” … !!!!!

“NOT” …. Putting Criminals …
In …. “COMMUNITIES” …. !!!!!! ….

I hope it’s … NOT …
… TOO LATE … !!!!! …

That’s ….
ALL … I have to say …

“EXCEPT” …………

These Last …
Four Words …

” LET’S GET THINGS STRAIGHT !!! “
