“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 ” …

“Films & Violence” … A poem written by Big Virge 10/11/2004

A Re-post, before this site closes, who knows for how long, or when, but, here is one of those pieces I posted on here, in the good ol’ … Early Days ….

Enjoy folks … !!!!!

Ya know …

This Violence thing ….
just isn’t in me … !!!
I’m just wondering when …
you masses will see ,,, ?

That wars are like whores ….
“Without” … A Pussy … !!!!!!

See … it really is … “Futile”
to be messin’ with me …

I’ve got logic like Spock
and … Big Ears …
Don’t you see … !?!

Yes …
The name is … ” Big V ”
and this style I believe … ?
is called … “Slam poetry !?!”
and I hear that … to win …
it helps if … you’re …

……….. FUNNY …….. !!!!!

Well …..
I hate to … Disappoint …

But …
That’s just … missing … the point !

I try to write things
that are built to … ” Anoint ” …
An … “Elixir of Pictures”
in terms of … My … Scripture …

That Affect … your mind …
Like … Smoking … “A Joint” … !!!!!

See …
One day it was Yoda …
who said to me ….

‘Virgil my son
this poetry thing
is your DESTINY !!!”

Like Luke I said ….

“Maaaannnn,
that just isn’t me
performing this thing
they call, Slam Poetry !?!”

So ……
Now that this veil …
is …. Covering me …

I feel like Darth Vader …
with forces … So DARK … !!!!!

I keep checkin’ my head …
for that … 666 … Mark … !!!!!!!

But …….
God’s force … I … ” Believe ” …
just keeps … “Loving Me” …
So … “My Soul” … like my mind
will always be …. ” FREE ” ….

“Violence” … surrounds me …
yet … “Angels in my Heart” …
but it’s …… “Lucipher” ……..
Don’t you …. see …. !?!?!?!

who sits back with a … “Fag” …
looking on …. ” Patiently ” ….
Awaiting …. Those …. “Fools”

………….. Wanting …………….

“Destruction’ …… of …… ” WE ” …..

“We” …. as in …. ” PEOPLE ”

So …. What’s Your … ” Destiny ? ”

It’s … “Lost Souls” …
who’ll be … DAMNED …
for ……. ETERNITY ……………………

So …….
What DO they … Achieve … !???!

See ……
I’ve found … NO Relief …
and now … “TRULY” … Believe …
A … “Great Many” … in this world
just keep being …. ” Deceived ” ….
by … BULL**** … and … Lies
that the ….. Media ….. “FEEDS”

While these … “Draculas” … ” SUCK ! ”
It’s my heart that just …. “BLEEDS”

Thus My Words …
search for … “TRUTH”
with …. ” INTENSITY ” …. !!!!!

while Violence … now … ” Reigns ”
in each … ” Big City ” … !!!!!

EVEN ……..
Young Girls will … “KILL” … !!?!!
Stab a gay … in his chest …
or …. could it be …. This …. ???

Is she just … “Re-enacting” …
what she saw in … Kill Bill … !???!

“We told you before,
Quentin’s films are TOO VIOLENT !!!!!”

The censors … Complain …
but … who is the … Tyrant … ?!?

A man using film … to …
“Reflect” … our … Environment

Or …. “Overpaid MP’s” ….
who NEED … Early Retirement !!!!!

So … Who do you … TRUST … !?!

“Ashes to Ashes”

…….. or ………

“Dust to Dust”

An Icepick … in your chest … !!!
in a … FIT … of … ” LUST ” … !?!

Well …….
It’s my … Basic Instinct …
That allows me to … “Drink” …

I’ve got … “A Shield of Steel” …
But … My name ain’t … “BATFINK” … !!!!!!

See …
In these few words …
“My Truth” … is …

…. REVEALED …. !!!!!

and like … Bruce …
I survive …..

On my … “Boy Scout” … Appeal … !!!
but now it seems ……….
Like Lambs ……..

You’re all … “quiet and silent” …
as I draw …. analogies ….
from movies … with … VIOLENCE …

So … when this …. Inscription ….
is … “FINALLY” … “DONE” …

Will I be … ” The ONE ” … ?
who’s … INJECTED … your mind
with thoughts of … ” Freedom ” … ?!?

Well …..
Be careful what you wish for … !!!
cos’ i’m the … “Wishmasters’ Son” … !!!
and will take your … Last Breath …
if you wish to … Retain …
Your … ” Youthful Reflection ” …

So …..
What … Reflects … WHAT … !?!?!?

Is it … Life … “Within Movies” … ?

…………….. or ………………….. ?????

Movies that …. ” Reflect ” ….
what goes on in … OUR LIVES … ?

I’m not Arnie …. !!!
BELIEVE ME ……… !!!!!!!!
What’s TRUE … in a … LIE … ?!?

I’m a … “Lyrical” … Prince …
but … My Doves … “DO NOT CRY” … !!!!!!

It’s … ” PEACE ” … That I LIVE FOR … !!!

So this VIOLENCE …

…….. “ MUST DIE ” ……. !!!!!!!
