The Knight still rides ….. written & performed by Big Virge

So, as the months go on of this rather crazy 2017, it’s time to drop the final album cut, for The Dark Knight of A Different Type ….

Right about now, he’s a busy fella, trying to stop all dee furry’ going on all over this world of ours right now …. !!!!!

But ….

He at least has some hard beats to move with ….. !!!!!

On production duties, Mr. Strat Carter, and, Mr. Anthony Lowhar, alongside of my vocals ….

An old school sound for an old school type of crimefighter, and, in this case, rhyme writer …. !!!!!

Take it for a spin ….

“I Use It Like” … A poem written by Big Virge 14/10/2013

A piece inspired by a freestyle session,
with a fellow poet, and, i’m proud to say …
A Friend of mine, who goes by the name of

…. Inity Fire ….

Ya know … I use it like …
A … Nine to Five …
but that’s … NOT my line … !!!
I Don’t … ” Plagiarise ” … !!!

These words were … Inspired …
by …. Inity Fire ….

Now ……
This Proves … I’m … NO LIAR … !!!
More like a … ” Good Friar ” …
who uses what’s … DIRE … !!!!!!
to … Elevate hiGHER …
just like … frequent fliers
use points to … ” Acquire ” …

Ways to … get around …
Without … using pounds …

Now …..
This piece may … ” Confound ” … ?
Writers … who are … ” Crowned ” …
as the … ” HOTTEST in Town … !!!!!!!!!
because they are …. ” Proud ” ….
to … Use It Like … ” CLOWNS ” … !!!

I use it like … WOW … !!!

I’ve heard it from … ” Crowds ” …
and those who wear … FROWNS … !!!
when my words … Hit the grounds …
of where they … ” Rule The Roost ” …
of poets who use …
this thing like it’s …. ” Cool ” ….
to use it like …. ” Fools ” …. ?!!!?

They’re ….
CLEARLY NOT SCHOOLED ….
in … ” Using This Tool ” …
to share what is … TRUE …
within their … “Dark Moods” … !!!

I use it like … ” Dudes ” …
with … Machine Guns to shoot … !!!

Firin’ SHOTS … !!!
through wordplay that’s … HOT … !!!!
and rocks … ” Different Spots ” …
Like …. Dalmatian Dogs …. !!!!! …..

I use it to … “Plot” …
The Downfall … of … wrong … !!!

I use it to … SHOCK …
” Logically ” … like … Tuvok … !!!

or maybe …. Sherlock … ???
when dealing with … Cops …
ASSHOLES … like Lestrade’ … !!!
who just … AREN’T THAT SHARP … !!!
and Don’t … use it with strength …
cos’ that’s … ” Beyond ” … their depth …

My style’s more like … ” Shaft ” …
” African ” … in my heart … !!!! …

Who Will … TEAR APART …
those who use it like … SHARKS … !!!

Who … use it to write …
and buy into … ” HYPE ” … !!!
that … They Are … GREAT WHITES … !!!

But … as we now know …
That story’s for … SHOW … !!!

They use it to … cause …
people to … ” Applaud ” …
as if they saw … ” JAWS ” …

A Great Big White … FRAUD … !!!!!

I use it like … ” Bond ” …
or Yes … ” Roger Moore ” …
because i’m the one …
who keeps Jaws … on the run … !!!

So I use it like … Movies …
by …. ” Connecting Dots ” ….

So … sometime it’s moody …
and filled with … “Dark Blots” … !!!
and Guy Fawkes type … PLOTS … !!!!

I … BLOW UP … but shrewdly …
with wordplay that’s … GROOVY … !!!
that … Calmly and Smoothly …
Tastes Good … like a … ” Smoothie ” … !!!
to those who have … ” Taste ” …
for more than what’s … FAKE … !!!!!

Lyrics … that are made …
to be thrown in the waste …
or thrown in the …. TRASH …. !!!

I DON’T USE IT LIKE THAT … !!!!!!

I use it with … PACE … !!!
and use it with … GRACE …
and use it in … ” Ways ” …
that puts most to … SHAME … !!!!
because their game’s … LAME …
and needs … ” Zimmer Frames ” …
before … ” All it can claim ” …

is …. dumbing down brains … !!!!!

So YES …..
Sometimes I use it …
in verse that’s … ABUSIVE … !!!!!

But Only … in Defence … !!!
when people make threats …
or make those attempts …
to act as if … I …
DO NOT … use it right … ?!?

Is there such a thing …
as … ” Poetic Bling ” … ?

HELL YES … There are people …
who use it for …. EGOS …. !!!
because they are … “feeble” …
and Nothing Like … ” Viggo ” …

LEADERS or … KINGS … !!!
or … ” Lords of ” … Their Rings … !!!

I use it like … FIGHTERS …
NOT THESE … ” Nine to Fivers ” …
who are REALLY … ” Part Timers ” …
who … ” Claim to be ” … writers …
when they should …. ” retire ” …. !!!!!!!!!

So …
Just for the haters …
Beraters’ and Slaters’ …

I’ll get to your capers …
and Ignorance … LATER … !!!

Who are they to judge … ?
what man puts on paper …
when they’re … NOT above …

“low down ” … Booty Shakers … !!!

I use it … ” Just Fine ” …
WITHOUT … Prose filled lines …
cos’ it … ISN’T A CRIME …
to rhyme … All The Time … !!!!

It’s … ENVY … I find …
that DEFINES … their insights …
because when they try …
They Can’t … Use it like Mine … !!!

Refined … and … Inclined
to speak about life …
The Strain … and … The Strife … !!!
and YES … The … ” Good Times ” …
But … WON’T EVER … Contrive …
to use it … Just for … ” Smiles ” …

or … for it to be … LIKED

You don’t like it …
That’s … FINE … !!!

But ….
Don’t be surprised …
if one day … You find …
A vision or … sight …
that reflects … what I write …

cos’ I … use it like … ” Lights ”
that each day … we walk by ……..

I use it like … ” Fights ” …
we see … ” Taking Lives ” … !!!

I use it like … ” Wars ” …
Behind … CERTAIN DOORS … !!!!

I use it like … ” Lords ” …
Use It … on the … poor … !!!!!

Sometime I feel sure …
I Can’t Do … ANYMORE … !!!!!!

But that’s when I find …
Energies … ” Close to Mine ” …
that QUICKLY … ” Inspire ” …

Like … ” Inity Fire ” …

and on the last … quote …
that’s all that I wrote …

It’s Really …
NO … Nine to Five … !!!
when I sit and write …

It’s more like …
Something wise …
that reflects on … This Life …

Through Good and Bad Times …
which i’m proud to now find …
is what …

” I Use It Like ” …

“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” …
are … NOT … The Type … !!!

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,
i’ve got to go !!!”

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

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,
that, friends of mine,
help out, in times
of financial strain !?!”

“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 …
will …. carry on ….
Airing …. views ….
Even if … They’re wrong … !?!

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 …
at …. ” Poetry Nights ” …. ?!?

if you speak about … ” Your Life ” …
that seems to be …. FINE …. !!!!! ….

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

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …
and they make folks …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …
and make … ” Attacks ” …

On Racists … or …
On … Western Plans …

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 …
” Poetic Rhymes ” …
that spread … ” Insight ” …

” 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
a history, of
dodgy deeds !!!”

I think you’ll find … ?
THAT MAN … is … ME … !!!

NO … Prison Time … !!!
has … Big Virge … SEEN … !!!

But ….
May Well … do … !!! ? !!!
for words I speak …

Even when …
My Record’s … CLEAN … !!?!!

Well ….
Clean … ENOUGH … !!!

I … HAVE BEEN …
…. ” Cuffed ” …. !!!!!
for … ” Slapping a girl ” …
For … DISRESPECTING … !!!

……… MY MUM …….. !!!!!

and ….. ” Driving Drunk ” ……

But ….

Both … ” Misdemeanours ” …
were … just the … ONCE … !!!!!
and like …. ” Benjamin ” ….
were when … I was … YOUNG … !!!!!

But …
The Point … i’m trying to make …
is … Black … ” Americans ” …
are … Deemed to be … GREAT … !!!!!

For …
Taking a … STANCE …
Against … ” Racial ” … HATE … !!!!!

WHICH … ” English Black ” … ?!!!? …
Can … Make The Claim … THAT …

They’ve Gained … RESPECT … !!!
for … Taking … THAT STANCE … !?!

What does that say … ?
about those who … CLAIM … !!!

THAT …….

“Blacks are treated,
JUST THE SAME !!!
as every other race,
on, English Shores !!!”

“Are THEY, QUITE SURE ?!!!?”

I’m NO … Malcolm X … !!!
But … DO HAVE … ” A Cause ” … !!!

My cause … ” DEPLORES ” … !!!!!!!
These … ” Government Laws ” …

cos’ … if you’re …
Black and … POOR …
You’re gonna …
SUFFER … for SURE … !!!!!

Even if …. You’re … NOT …
Police now …. “Plot” ….
to … ” Shoot You Down ” … !!!!!

or … Question you … ?
Even if … ” They Doubt ” …

THAT … You … ” ARE ” …
“THAT” … ” Drug Dealer ” … !?!

OR ……. ” The One ” ……..
who STOLE … ” That Car ” … !!!!!

Laws They … PASS …
are now … ” Pure Farce ” … !!!!

It seems … they’ve moved …
But …. NOT TOO FAR …. !!!!!!!

Away … from keeping …
Us ……….. Apart ……….

Ask Yourself … WHY … ???
are They … ” Inclined ” …. ?

to … “RESTRICT” … those …
Who … EXPOSE … Lies … ?!? …

” Creatively ” …
or … ” Otherwise ” …

Through …..
Simply Saying ….
What’s IN … ” Their Mind ” … !?!

PLEASE …..
ask yourself … ” WHY ” … ?

” Is It Such A Crime ? ”

“Corrupt” … A poem written by Big Virge 29/1/2009

So ….
What does it mean … ?
to be …. ” Corrupt ” …. ?!?

Well these days …
It would seem …

A good place to start …
is within … ” Government ” … !!!

Allegations of moves …
” Corrupters ” …. use ….
is … ” Regular News ” …
from … Government Crews … !!!

So …
What’s the score … ?
with … Government Lords … ?!?
who have … Powers to enforce …

” Some ” …. it seems
are now …. ” Bought ”
to affect the course …
of … Future Laws … !!!!!

Surely …..
Something’s … UP …
when those … CLEARLY IN …
A position of … ” TRUST ” …
Affect the lives of ….

…. ” ALL OF US ” …..

because of …. Bribes ….
from …. ” Corporate Ties ” …. !!!!!

So …..
Does this mean … ?
that … Corporate Teams …
who make … ” BIG MONEY ” … !!!!!

” Cannot ” …. make bucks ….
without being … ” Corrupt ” … ?!!!?

” SURELY NOT !!!!! ” ….

Those at … THE TOP …
I’m sure would say …

“We don’t get paid,
to cook up plots !”

So …..
What’s the need … ?
to bribe …. MP’s ….
or … worse still … LORDS … !!!
to …. ” MODEL ” …. Laws ….
that … Don’t Help … The Poor …

It’s been done before …
and that’s for … ” SURE ” … !!!

and it … ” Rarely Seems ”
that they’re found … ” GUILTY ” … !?!
or face …. ” Penalties ” …. ?!? ….
that affect … ” Their Rights ” …
to … AVOID … Prison Time …
for what’s clearly … ” A CRIME !!! ” …

They affect … The Masses lives …
just for …. A Money Prize …. !!!!! …

” Corruption and Lies ” ….
seems to be … ” Their Life ” …

But ….
” Corruption ” … It’s Clear …
doesn’t end with … ” Peers ” …

” Corrupted Files ” ….
seem to set the … Profiles …
of those …. Online ….
with … ” Corrupted Minds ” …
Like …. ” PAEDOPHILES ” …. !!!!!!!!

So …..
If your P.C. …
Starts to … STALL …
You’ve been … Surfing ….

TOO MUCH PORN …. !!!!!!!!!!!

The clear sign being ….
……. Ofcourse …….
what is called a …….

….. ” Trojan Horse ” …… !!!!!!!!!!

NOT THAT …
I would know … !!!!!

“Somebody” ….
Told me so …. !!!!!!!!!

I’ve watched my share of shows …
that feature …. ” Ho’s and Pro’s ” …

Does that make ME …
……. ” Corrupt ” …….. ?

Well …
I guess … ?

It kinda … does … !?!

But …. ” Corrupted Flows ” …. ?
Within …. My Prose …. ???

Well ….
Just like coke ….

My answer’s …. NO …. !!!!!

So ….
” Corruptive ” … quotes …
I choose to … ” CHOKE ” …

No Tell ….
No Ho ….

But … corruption now …
is how … cameras roll …

and that’s just how …
the story goes …
in most of these …

…. Net Videos …. !!!!!!

Does corruption mean
A need to see …
These girls in scenes …
that were … Once Deemed …
as being … ” UNCLEAN ” … !!!!!

Well ….
I guess … that’s me … !???!

But ….
What about …. THEM …. ???

Women … YES …
who … OPEN LEGS …
and … Show Off … breasts …
to get … FAT Cheques … !!! …
for ….. Having Sex ……

Are they …. ” Corrupt ” …. !?!
for doing …. Stuff ….

That … in the past …
would of had them … cast …
as … You Know … What …

…. ” A Dirty Slut ” …. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well …
NOT …. nowadays ….
as long as they ….

…….. GET PAID …….. !!!!!!!!!

Now … i’m no prude …
But … ” Corruption’s ” …

…… MOVED ……

in how it’s … Viewed … ???

which is why I asked …
at the … Very Start …

” What does it mean …
to be … Corrupt … ??? ”

It seems to me …
that … being corrupt …
can fulfil many dreams …
of … ” Living It Up ” … !!!!!!

So ….
what would you do … ?
if you met a … crew …
who … Offered you …
A … ” Load of Cash ” …
to … “Kill” … another man …
or to … Build a plan …
to … ” INVADE ” …
” Foreign Lands ” …

Well ….
if you would … ” Accept ” …
that type of … ” Payment ” …

Do you think … ?
” You should ” … ?!?

” Corruption ” … could …
Affect … You Too … !!!!?!!!!

or people … who ….
are … ” Close to You ” …

which goes to prove ….
” Corruptive Moves ” ….
can lead to … Abuse …

The kind of … Abuse …
that has … ” Moral Issues ” … !!!

So …..
Maybe it’s … ” Morals ” … ?
that have … ” Hit the Rocks ” …
and have now been … ” Lost ” …

So …..
What’s the … ” COST ” … ?

A lump sum … payment
to affect … ” Government ” …
which may well … Affect You …
more than it does … ” THEM ” … !!!

So ….
Do you think it’s … COOL
when this causes … ” Problems ”

Like todays ….
” Credit Crunch ” … !?!

i’ll leave that to you …
to … Consider … your view …

But ….
Here’s my last question … ?
for corruption to … LESSEN …
in this …. ” Modern Age ” ….
where … “CASH” … is the aim …

whether by … ” Getting Laid ”
or by … ” Law Breaking Ways ”

When you think of this stuff …
What does it mean to you … ?

To be one who’s …..

…. ” Corrupt ” ….
