“We Can’t All Be” … Written and Performed By Big Virge

So, as these strange times continue to roll on, we have a number of people speaking on, a rather large variety of things now !

The Corona situation seems to be breeding talk that is seemingly, actionable one day, regarding travel, and the nations that are safe to visit, or, receive visitors from….

…. to the very next day, being the VERY SAME Places, that are then spoken of as being, “ HOTSPOTS “, to the point where people have found that their, overly eager reactions, to being able to travel, due to such talk, may have been a little premature !

It seems as though there are still plenty of people, with money to waste, just to apparently, get away ….

From WHAT, I’m really not sure ?

… when the virus is far from seemingly, being controlled ?!?

So, some holiday makers have been stranded to the point where, delayed returns, and reinforced quarantine measures, will now infringe upon their work and life commitments !

There have been, just INSANE, knee jerk reactions, from clearly, stir crazy folks, due to lockdowns and the subsequent talk, from leaders who are clearly misleading people, with their, ridiculous, Corona rhetoric ?!?

Across the waters in America, we have the obvious debates, about statues etcetera, raging, and constantly being a subject of current conversations and debates, surrounding race !

Well, the race debate is reaching countries all over the place now, and it’s not going down so well with certain heads in the US, especially when it comes to kneeling, or standing, during anthem ceremonies !

Individuals such as New Orleans Saints, Quarter Back, Drew Brees, to the likes of ex, Chicago Bears Head Coach, Mike Ditka, have made it clear, that those who take issue with standing for the anthem, should not only be ashamed, but as per, Mike Ditka in particular, should feel free to leave America and not return, if they have such a big problem with it !

Drew Brees, on the other hand, is now making, apology after apology, for what has earned him a heavy, social media, public backlash, for his initial stance.

So, it’s a strange time, when it comes to basic, freedoms of speech, when social media accounts are being banned for inflammatory or misleading comments on race, gender or the Corona Virus, including Tweets from President Trump ?!?

Well, if people can’t read between the lines here, then soon, reading is ALL they’ll be doing, because to me, these restrictions are being imposed to stop, average folk from speaking out against injustices, beyond those being highlighted currently !

You only have to ask those in Hong Kong, who are now being treated as if they’re hardened criminals, for merely protesting against, what is essentially, a Chinese War being waged, on Political Criticisms and Free Speech !

FREE SPEECH People !!!

DO NOT Underestimate, the way that things are heading, we’ve already been subject to an enforced, global lockdown, so it only seems reasonable, that after all these protests, that, speech freedoms will be next thing to face, such restrictions and controls … ?!?

As an expressive writer, I have a SERIOUS PROBLEM with what I hope to be wrong about, but doubt that I am !

Thus, I can’t speak on this subject, without again, mentioning the issue that JK Rowling has got caught up in, regarding Transgender People, which is now a hot debate for women’s sport too, as well as politicians, like, Labour MP, Rosie Duffield, whose stance and tweets, on the issue of treatment for … individuals with Cervical Cancer, seems to have upset Transgender people, for well, whatever reason, but, what’s interesting is that, she caught the backlash, seemingly, after she liked a tweet by PIERS MORGAN, no less, who suggested that this was a question for … WOMEN !!!

The SAME Piers Morgan, who literally, publicly vilified a man for not wanting to see, gay men dancing together on Strictly Come Dancing, because of the issues it would cause for families watching it together ….

So, the confusion continues…. regarding this, rather hot topic, of Gender Agendas, and opinions that don’t sit so well with the LGBT community, especially when made by public figures ?!?

We also have the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, suggesting that players are being treated like, ” Lab Rats “, for this years World Snooker Championships, which has drawn criticism from other players, let alone organisers.

Finally, once again, the incredibly touchy subject of Jewish People, and how, NO ONE, from the likes of Ex, Labour Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to the likes of Grime Artist, Wiley, can seemingly say, ANYTHING, remotely offensive about them, without facing public condemnation, and loss of an abundance of things, from leadership, in Corbin’s case, to management support in Wileys’.

I have to say, considering that it would seem that Wiley has worked with, and for, Jewish people who have funded, sponsored and promoted him, as well as sat in discussions with him, about their history and attitudes, that his Twitter outburst, was not necessarily the smartest move he’s ever made, even if, as he claims, he’s not frightened of what they can, or will, now try to do to him and his career !

I guess he’s made enough money now, however, his immediate dropping by his management company, may prove to be an interesting factor in how his future endeavours go !

I was told on a walk by the beach in Barbados a while ago, that NO ARTIST, especially if they’re black, gains success without Jewish support.

Wiley must be different, because he seems to now, care less about them,

Hmm, Interesting ……

Especially as Alan Sugar, for whom this has not been the first time, has again, made rather stereotypically, ignorant comments about a suit that, of all people, Ian Wright was wearing while being a guest pundit, on television this week, which could be deemed as being racist ? However, whether they could or couldn’t be, he doesn’t seem to have been treated with anything like the same disgust as Wiley received ….

Black Lives Matter … ?!?
Double Standards … ???

… because his comments were meant in, ” JEST “, ….

Huh, well we all know how the saying goes,
about things said in apparent … ” Jest ” …

So what stirred Wileys’ outburst, that never came, while he was on his way up, no dig, just wondering… ???

… because, as Professor Griff can attest, such outbursts tend to have blacks facing, BIG problems for making comments that could be, EVEN SLIGHTLY Construed as being, Anti Semitic !!!

So, this weeks piece speaks on the very CLEAR BIAS and INEQUALITY, that applies to black mouths, be they from the NAACP, to the music industry, because movements like, Black Lives Matter, don’t seem quite so keen to highlight, and speak on just how much oppression, black people have received, as a result of Jewish influence in these, same, corridors of power, that apparently have created a culture of systemic racism, that warrant the protests now in view !

It’s a pot that’s always stewed, well hidden away from view, in my opinion, but it just goes to prove, that whether it be, in public forums, or in the realm of artistry …..

…. that there is a VERY REAL, and DISTURBING TRUTH …

…. which is that, when it comes to speech, especially from,

Black Creative People ….
Our being able to speak in ways that are TRULY FREE …

Is something that ….

WE CAN’T ALL BE …..

“Be Careful What You Say !” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So, another week has come and gone, as has Ex UK Chancellor, Sajid Javed, barely weeks before what would appear to be a very important budget, for the UK and beyond !!!

Mr. Javid is not alone though, as a certain Andrew Sabinsky, due to tweets made that exposed certain views about Eugenics, pregnancies and of course, race, has made his position untenable, in the current, cancel climate.

A rare occurrence for a parliamentarian, however, as he was only a recently appointed advisor, he has proven to be expendable, even though he hasn’t been criticised for his opinions, in any way, by Boris Johnson, or the Conservative Party, in any major way.

The story that has really caught my attention though, is the one that has shown what can happen when you upset the alphabet genders, in tweets you decide to share publicly !!!

However, interestingly here, as the accused is an ex-policeman, Harry Miller, who is now a businessman who clearly knows his way around the law, has somehow been found to have been the VICTIM of disproportionate actions, or, as has been quoted,

“disproportionate interference with the claimants right to freedom of speech.”

by the police, who, having received the complaint, sent an officer to the office of Mr. Miller, who was accused of a transphobic tweet, on the grounds of his tweets being a …

“Non crime hate incident.”

Hmmm, now this is interesting, considering the level of vitriol and criticism, anytime someone black says anything deemed to be, disrespectful of the alphabet community ?

Especially as the judiciary of England and Wales state that

“free speech includes not only the inoffensive, but the irritating, the contentious, the eccentric, the heretical, the unwelcome and the provocative, and that the freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having.”

So, this topic can’t be covered, without mention of Israel Folau, who, although losing his contract with Australian Rugby, for suggesting that, hell awaits members of said community, then fought his case on religious grounds, got a money settlement, and is now playing his rugby elsewhere.

So, is this another racist agenda, as retired ultra orthodox, Jewish Judge, Gavriel Krausz, made it clear that Jewish teachers should be prepared to take their own life, before teaching LGBTQ matters to children, as it’s an abomination !

I don’t believe he’s been thrown under the bus for such shocking statements, as many others seem to be ???

So, back to Harry Millers case, where Justice Julian Knowles, even went as far as to suggest that Humberside police acted as if they were Gestapo, or Stasi, in some kind of Orwellian society, which is completely alien to how Britain is… or has ever been !!!

Hmmm … ?????

In fact, according to Article 10, of the European Convention of Human Rights, the police violated the rights to freedom of speech, for Mr. Miller.

So, does this article not apply to the rest of us, or to the parents who have fought against the compulsory teaching of LGBTQ lifestyles to children, as one Muslim parent has definitely been threatened with fines or even imprisonment, for making his feelings known publicly ?!?

This has become a touchy subject for anyone who uses their ability to speak freely on the matters of the world, to get paid today. However, there do seem to be quite a few imbalances in how such outbursts, especially via social media, are treated, as per Kevin Hart, as just one example !

Double Standards seem to surround this subject, but, freedom of speech is the only thing that seems to be being restricted, due to what exactly … ???

…. people being offended by an opinion or comment, that doesn’t sit well with them, well they should try being black in this ridiculously, lopsided world, when it comes to ministers, leaders, sports fans, players and administrators alike, who’ve been disrespectful to black people in particular, right up to today !!!

People are being bullied into submission, regarding this issue, except for ….

Hmm, ex policeman, or toe the line, media people … ?!?

Something clearly does not add up, and needs to be addressed in a more rational and reasonable way.

If we are to be in an era where upsetting people can affect your ability to earn, or speak freely, then the likes of Trump and Boris, need to, not only face judiciaries, over their often, offensive statements, but should be removed from positions of office, where what they say can evidently, influence millions of people !!!

It’s clear that, as it’s always been, the rules get switched to suit, except for black people, unless we join the rank and file of those who claim to now be victimised.

Freedom of speech … ???

Well, maybe for some, but for the rest us it’s clear that we still have to …..

…….. “Where” ………

” Guantanamo Bay !!! ”

” I say I say ! ”

“Yes, you say what !!!!?!!!!”

” Can I use my brain ? ”

“Ofcourse you may

” What, just for thoughts

” Don’t I have a voice

” What, like Big Brother !!! ”

“A little like that
but we call it undercover”

” Like Mr. Macintrye ? ”

“Don’t you ever get tired !!!”

” Well excuse me sir
I just don’t concur
with the thought
that my brain
should just refrain
from talking of things
that bring me pain !!!!! ”

“Sir, your form of complaint
now requires restraint
and if you don’t, STOP,
you’ll be detained !!!!!”

Now ……
I’ve just watched …
Yes …. ” I Robot ” …
and am … A little disturbed …
by … Modern Plots … !!!

Now actors are seen
on stage … as machines
I … Never Ever ….

But … that’s the way …
Things are … these days …

They’re … NOT … in the one
of my … ” Black Skin ” …

Problems … I face …
Don’t … Lie Within … !!!

Can’t I talk about … Sins …
of … New … Racists … ? …

“Virgil son,
you must resist
you know your place
so just, accept it !!!”

What do you mean ?
I see …. I see ….
Hidden Away … from ITV …
and … CLEARLY … Yes …
…… ” The BBC ” …….

” Indeed ” … ” Indeed ” …
That’s the place … for me …

A place where … I …
write poetry …
and do not feed …
” Deluded ” … Dreams … ???

” They’ll ” … have an end
to suit … their means …

But …. Will it protect …
“Freedom” …. of speech … ?

…… or ……

Fill a slot …
Just … because ………

I do hope not … !!!!!

Is poetry dead … ?

Is freedom locked … ?

Is the answer in …
My head of … Knots … ???

I’ll do my thing …
until i’m stopped …

NOT … by Those …
who … sit and plot …

But …. Father Time ….
and … all our Gods ….
who feed me … words …
to …. ” Sit and Jot ” ….

I hope … that they …
with … ” NO DELAY ” … !!!!!

Decide that …. ” We ” ….
have right of …. way ….
to say … The Things …
We … WANT … to say … !!!!!

Those who choose …
to … ” Entertain ” …

and those like me …
of a … ” Different Strain ” … !!!!!!

Just like … Blood …
runs through … My Veins

“So Do” … My Thoughts …
inside … my brain …

To … Relinquish … that …
would … Drive Me Mad … !!!

Isn’t that … ” Essential ” … !!!
to being ….. ” Human ” … ?!?

Sharing views
with … Woman and Man …

I’m trying my best …
to … ” Over-Stand ” …

Why we’d want to …
change that … plan … ???

It’s hard these days
to live in … ” Peace ” … !!!

But … it’ll be much worse … !!!!!
with … NO … Expression …
or use … for … Words …

These plans … disturb …
and seem … ” Absurd ” …
and may just … Hurt …

This place called ……

….. ” Earth ” ……

We need to express …
to … Ease our … ” Stress ” …

and ……

” Communicate ” … MORE …

NOT … do this less … !!!!!!!!!!!

That’s just my view …
But … What about … YOU … ???

But remember …

” These Days ” …

“The Test of Stress” … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/8/2009

A suitable piece to follow the below post, fa sure !

However, it does seems to me that people, right now, are on some, SERIOUS BULLPISH !!!

….and seem to enjoy, stressing their bullchit views, as if you should abandon, good sense, for the Fukry’ them coming with … ?!!!?

It’s just getting harder and HARDER, to deal with people, especially when you’re being REAl, while they’re seemingly, caught in up with Alice in …

” F’kd Up Fallacy-Land ”

Damnnnnn ……

These days I must … ” Confess ” …

It’s hard to deal with … STRESS … !!!!!
cos’ Many … try to … ” Test ” …
because they lack … ” Good Sense ” … !!!

Like … Knowing when …
They … Shouldn’t Speak … !!!

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 ”

“Is It Such A Crime ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/3/2006

Is it … ” Such a Crime ” … ?
to … ” Speak Your Mind ” … ?

Because ….

it … Seems to be …
if you’re … NOT WHITE …

I hear this, said …
So Many … times … !!!

“Virge, you scare folks !
with words you rhyme !”

and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

but … words I … “Quote” …

to … ” Start A Fight ” … !!! …

but may … ” Unsettle ” … ?!?
Those who … ” Settle ” …
to … “hide” … behind …
A … “LIE FILLED” … life … !!!

Can Someone … DEFINE … ?
Why it’s …. ” Such A Crime ” …. ?
to ….. ” Criticize ” ……
…. ” Political ” …. types …. !?!

In times like … THESE …

” FREEDOM ” … of … SPEECH …
is … NEEDED … just like poetry … !!!

if we’re to … ” Ease ‘ …
” Pain and Misery ” … !!! …
and crimes of … More …

… FATAL DESIGNS … !!!!!

“Murders” … “Rapes” … !!!
Crimes … based on … Race … !!!
and Crimes … Inclined …
To Keep … ” The Masses ” …

…………. “blind” ………….

Like Those … in … ” Folds ” …
who make ….. Mistakes …..

Do THEY … ” Pay A Toll ” … ?
for … CASH … THEY TAKE …

” Mistakes ” …
THEY SAY …… !!!

That …..
Pay for … ” Homes ” … ?!?

“It was merely, a loan,
from a chap I know !
No more questions now,

“A chap you know ?!?
can’t we know his name !?!”

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,

“Of course not sir !
but don’t divert,
what is his name ?
and did he donate ?
to your friends campaign ?
Need I ask you again !?!
the question is
what is his name ???
Let me make it plain !
Are you quite sure
he hasn’t bought
A Peerage, and,
is now a lord ?”

“I will not answer
any more ! What
do you take, politicians for ?
Anyone would think,
our dealings, stink !”

“Well, no more than
a poor street whore
is it such a crime
to want to know more ?”

Could this be why
Government guidelines
are trying to stem
peoples’ questions !?!

If …..
Free Speech … ” Ends ” …

What’ll happen to … THEM … ???
and ……. ALL THEIR …….
” Pre-Planned ” … arguments … ?!?

It seems that … THEY …

Isn’t that … A Crime … !???!

It would seem … NOT … !!!

So …..
How can it be a … ” Crime ” …
to …. ” Speak Your Mind ” …. ?!?

Especially when ….
You’re Proven … RIGHT … !!!

I find this … ATTITUDE …

Or Express … FRUSTRATION … !!!
at the … State of The … NATION … !!!

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …

You’re treated like …
An ….. ALIEN …… !!!!!

It must be … A Crime …
to be a ….. BLACK MAN ….. !???!

Especially when ….
you have … A MIND … !!!!!

Inclined to … WRITE …

” But, SOME BLACKS DO !!! ”

“Well, if that’s true,
let me ask you who
Mr. Zephaniah ???
Okay, that’s one !
But, he’s spent time,
inside prison !!!”
I’m talking about
a black without

“Outspoken” … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/11/2005

Wow, people are happy to run theirs, but, when you run yours, all of a sudden, you’re out of line and have … GONE TOO FAR …. ?!?

Well, just for them … !!!!!

Folks ….
People … ” Aren’t Joking ” … !!!
when they say i’m ……

….. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!

Sometimes …
I say things …
that leave people …
… ” Broken ” … !!!!!!!!

Some people have … ” cried ”
because of the way …
I speak about … ” Life ”

“Suffering” … “Pain” … and …
Dealing with …. ” Strife ” …. !!!

But ….
Things that I say …
are … ” Simple Reflections ” …
on things … in my sight …

Sometimes they are … ” WRONG ” … !!!
Sometimes they are …. ” RIGHT ” …. !!!!!

But ….
Speaking my mind
should not be a … ” Crime ” … !!!!!

My words are … ” Designed ”
to … ” Simply ” … ” Invite ” …
A place within … ” Darkness ” …
where … ” CLARITY SHINES ” … !!!!!
and … LIGHT … is … DEFINED … !!!!!

Words I now … write …
are simply … Inclined …
to … ” Lyrically Dine ” …
recline and be … ” Primed ”

to do … what is … ” WISE ”
and pay … ” CLOSE ATTENTION ” … !!!
to …. ” REALITY’S ” … Signs … !!!

On … How To Live …
A … ” POSITIVE LIFE ” … !!!!!

I’d rather … DO THAT … !!!
than live life to … Fight … ?!?

I’m NOT … in a rush …
to lay down and … DIE … !!!!!

Since I was a kid …
I’ve always been quick …
to air … My Opinions …
and speak about … things …

I LOVE TO … Enlist … !!!
The use of … ” EXPRESSION ”
It’s … CLEARLY … A Gift … !!!
and now an … ” OBSESSION ” … !!!!!

Poems … KEEP COMING … !!!
just like a … ” PROCESSION ” … !!!!!

But some … Do Not Like … !!!
The words I … ” Recite ” … !!!
and don’t like the sight …
of … My Lips … by a mic … !!!!!

But Hey …
That’s Okay … !!!

They … REALLY … Miss Out …
at the … End of the day … !!! …

My Wordplay … has …
….. ” SUBSTANCE ” …..

“EVEN” ……
when I … RAGE … !!!!!

But … NEVER … indulges …
in … ” Inciting ” … HATE … !!!!!!

But ….
CLEARLY … reflects …
My Mood … when … IRATE … !!!!!

But …..
My Moods …
Like … The Weather …
Show … CHANGE …
… ” Everyday ” … !!!!!

I can’t be the same
and always be … ” TAME ”

Those who want that …
Like … ” Controlling Brains ” … !!!!!

and clearly … are people …
who … NEED TO … REFRAIN … !!!!!!!
from trying to …. ” LIMIT ” ….
what people …. ” Should Say ” …. !!!

We Need to be … ” Mindful ” …
of those who … Relay …
A message that … ” Glorifies ”
….. ” Deviant ” …. ways …. !!!!!!

Those who … ” Spread Hate ”
and … ” Murderous Traits ”

SHOULD BE … !!!
LOCKED AWAY … !!!!!

But …
That’s just … “My View” …
at the …. end of the day …. !!!

Freedom of Speech …
is … ” BEAUTY ” … to me … !!!

NOT … Trying to Teach … !!!
or … Trying to Preach … !!!

We … ALL … have a mouth
I’d rather use … ” SPEECH ” … !!!
than … ” Physical Clouts ” …
“That” … Knock People … Down … !!!!!

“Brainpower” …. FEEDS ….
Off … wordplay that … ” Speaks ”
to … ” Souls Within People ” …
who choose … NOT TO SEE … !!!!!

A world where we … STOP …
Our … ” Freedom of Speech ” …

“Music” … is … SO GREAT …
when … ” Wordplay ” … Relates …
A Feeling … that … ” TOUCHES ” …
and … ” Sensually ” … Clutches …
” Something ” …. ” Deep Inside ” … !!!
And … ” Helps Pain ” … subside … !!!!!

This is …. One Reason ….
I Now … LOVE TO WRITE … !!!!!

because my … ” Expression ”
HELPS … ” Channel Aggression ”
and helps me to … ” STRENGTHEN ”
My use of …. ” Expression ” ….

My … ” OUTSPOKEN ” … Nature
Has … brought me …
My … ” Troubles ” … !!!!!

But …
Has been …. ” My Saviour ” …. !!!
and keeps me from … ” FORCES ”
” DARKER ” … than … Vader’s … !!!
GREEN … is the colour …
of YES … ” My Light Sabre ” … !!!!!

GREEN … as in … ” Country ”
where … Animals Roam …
“Expressing” … themselves …
in …. ” EVERY ” …. Zone ….

We sit and … Watch Them …
when they use … ” Expression ”
and … CANNOT DEFEND …

” The Vision ” … of them …
Behind … A Zoo Fence … !!!

Don’t get it … ” Confused ”
I’m simply … Suggesting …
That … Airing Our Views …
is … ” SURELY ” … A Thing …
We should … NOT REFUSE … !!!

“EVEN” … when people …
say things … That Abuse … !!!

because you then … KNOW …
if you …. Can Be … COOL …

and … Even if … NOT …
may help you to … Choose …

A … ” Positive Way ” …
to … RESOLVE … Your Issues … !!!

“Being” … OUTSPOKEN …
is NOT … Always Good … !!!!!

But ….
Does … Help a person …
to … give you … ” Some Clues ”
on what … Fuels … Their Mood …
and … May … Give you … PROOF …
of what … They’re Into …

I Now … Prefer … THAT … !!!
than being with … ” Those ” …
who simply …. ” Sit Back ” …. !!!
and wait for the ….. Chance …..
to make … an … ” ATTACK ” … !!!!!

What is it … THEY LACK … ?
That … Makes them … DO THAT … ?!?

Some folks are … like this …
and that’s just a … FACT … !!!!!

These are the … people …

Whose words i’m now …
….. ” Quoting ” …..

and NO …
I’m NOT … JOKING … !!!!!

These are the people ….
who say …. ” Virgil’s ” ….

…. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!!!!
