Yasiin on Malcolm X …..

Not to be forgotten ….

One of my inspirations, fa’ sure ….

and who better than Yassin Bey, to convey some reasons as to why, Malcolm X, demands respect even now, years after his death ….

The exhibition looks like a good’un ….

Wonder if any such stuff is running in England ???

“Politically INCORRECT” … A Poem written by Big Virge 28/02/2005

As we seem to be seeing an abundance of … ” Incorrectness ” …
from various, factions, individuals and agencies, of late ….

What does it REALLY mean to be … ” Politically Correct ” … ???

Is it …
” Politically Incorrect ” … ?
for me to … ” Suggest ” …

Our lives are …
… ” Controlled ” …
by a … “Secret Sect” … ?!?

Is it …
” Politically Incorrect ” … ?
to be …. ” So Direct ” ….
when airing … my view …
on … Controversial … subjects … ?

The World’s in a … MESS … !!!
but meantime … ” The Press ” …
continue to … Test …
My Patience with … LIES … !!!
that … ” MILLIONS ” … digest … !!!!!

Most stories …..
Have … ” DEFECTS ” … !!!
that we should … ” Deflect ” … !!!

cos’ … Editors Prey …
On … ” The Weak ” … and Inject …
Political views … with …
IMPROPER … news … !!!!!

So ….
What do you choose … ?

Mental Abuse … ?!?
or … Do you want … TRUTH … ?
on which … you can … ” Chew ” … ?

Is it … Politically CORRECT … !?!
to say … ” Coloured ” … Not Black … ?
When BLACK … is a word …
Used in … ” Racial Attacks ” … ???

Is it wrong to say ….

….. NIGGER …… !!!!!!!!

when this is a word …
that makes rappers … Six Figures … !?!

No wonder … Young Blacks …
are now … Pulling … The Trigger … !!!!!

Having read through that verse …
I’ve got …. ” Twitchy Fingers ” …. !!!!!

The smell of death … Lingers ………
on … ” Most ” … City Streets …

So …
Is This … Correct … ?
Just ask the police … !!!

Is crime on … The incREASE … ?
Hell Yeah … I believe … !!! …

But …
Not Just … ” Petty Thief ” …

What about … ” Party Chiefs ” … ?

“They would NEVER STEAL !!!”

Come on people … PLEASE … !!!!!

They steal … peoples’ lives …
while giving out … DEATH … !!!!!!!!

So … will I survive … ?
with life signs … NOT VITAL … !?!

This poem’s … ” Entitled ” …

… ” Politically Incorrect ” …

Like suggesting … collusion …
Ended … Malcolm X … !!! …

Collusion … Collusion

Malcolm died in … Confusion … ???
from … MANY Gunshots … !!!

What a …
HORRID … conclusion … !!!!!

These words are … CORRECT …
Dissecting … illusions … !!! …

So what about … ” Clay ” … ?
YES … ” Muhammad Ali ” …

A man who spoke …
…. TRUTH ….
in his ….. Poetry …..

Well maybe that’s why …
he’s got … Parkinsons’ … now … ???

Cos’ America … Knew …
They’d Best … SHUT HIM DOWN … !!!!
cos’ the masses heard … Truth …
when he opened … His Mouth …

” He fought on for TOO LONG ! ”

is the … ” Good Ol’ Song ” …

Well it seems … ” Kinda Funny ” …
I think he was … WRONGED … !!!

Well ….
That Comment … I guess … ?
May seem … ” Incorrect ” … ?!?

But it’s one i’ll … STAND BY …
on this … You can bet … !!!

cos’ … Muhammad Ali …
Still … INSPIRES ME … !!! …

A man of … TRUE SUBSTANCE … !!!
with heart in … ABUNDANCE … !!!
who did not believe in …
” Congresses ” … NONSENSE …

Talking of which …
I have to say … THIS … !!!

When you go to the bank …
cos’ you need them to … ” Lend ” …

How can they … DEFEND … !?!
” Denying us ” …. CASH ….
when they’ve … got …

A …. HUGE STASH …. !!! ? !!!

But … I Bet …
write out cheques …
for their … ” Corporate Friends ” … !!!

Well it seems …
There I go …

Incorrectness … AGAIN … !!!!!

Incorrectness … to me …
DEFINES … Corporate Men … !!!

But I guess … ” Most of You ” … ?

Feel my words … Just OFFEND … !!!
and maybe …. My Words …. ?
will indeed … Be My End … !!!!!

Here’s ….
ONE FINAL … ” Stanza ” …
to … Mentally … “Capture” …

REDUNDANT … Brain Matter …
” Absorbing ” … FAKE DATA …

I inject with … ” Intellect ” …
while these … “Secret Sects” …
PROTECT and COLLECT …

while black folk …
live in … Debt … !!!

Political Correctness …
has got some … DEFECTS … !!!!!

So that’s …
My Last Question …

Am I …..

” Politically Incorrect ” … ???

“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 ? ”
