” I’m The Cat WITHOUT The Hat ” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 22/11/2006

Well, as any good poet knows, ” Dr. Seuss “, ” Cat In the Hat “, type verse, is stuff you need to have at least read, ONCE, as it has touched millions of adults and children, across the globe, with it’s witty, clever, insight filled, rhyme schemes, that may have seemed, very basic and simple, but, ALWAYS offered a Pearl of Wisdom, somewhere within em’, so, as we are in the season of Festive Cheer ….

Here’s a poem that’s about as close as i’ll get to showing a slightly, lighter hearted side, to my poetic mind.

However, as said, just like the good Doc’s verse, this has deeper connotations, hidden inside …. so, take the ride and …..

Enjoy folks ……

So …………………..

Let me just … Say This …

I’m The Cat …
WITHOUT … The Hat … !!!

Who …
Writes about … THIS …
And …
Writes about … THAT …

Or YES … That Chap … !!!
Whose Wordplay … Shows …

I’m ….
Searching for … FACTS … !!!

Facts about … ” Why ” …
Life’s NOT … So Nice … ?!?

Is it …
The Choices we make
About our … ” Welfare State ” … ?

Do we …
REALLY Have A Choice … ???

Or Do … Leaders DICTATE … ?!?
By … Using Ploys …
to … Div-ide … Our Race …

The … ” HUMAN ” … Race … !!!!!

So Don’t EVER … Mistake …

My Use of … Poetry …
As A Path … to … Race Hate … !!!

Now I’m …
NO …. Doctor Seuss’ …

But …
Here’s the news …

My Poetry … Moves …
Kind of like his … ” Smooth ”

So Let’s QUICKLY … ” Recap ” … !!!

I’m NOT … The Cat …

IN …… The Hat ….. !!!

But I am …
a Cool Dude …
Who’s … Searching for … FACTS …

to … IMPROVE My View …
of what’s … ” Called ” … THE TRUTH … ?!?

THE TRUTH … About …

” The World ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” Girls ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” Life ” …

THE TRUTH … About …

” WHY ” … ???

Some FORSAKE … What’s RIGHT … ?!?!?

So …
What is … WRONG … ?

And …
What is … RIGHT … ?

That’s A Question that … ” Belongs ” …
In the … ” Annals of Time ” … !!! ….

So does anyone … CARE … ???
and are we … ” Prepared ” … !?!

For what may … become …
A World of ….. PROBLEMS ….. !!!

Do You ….
Think that your … STRONG … ?

Or …..
Think that your … weak … ?!?

DON’T Procrastinate Now … !!!
Take Your Chance … to … SPEAK … !!!

Before you’re …
FORCED To … FROWN … !!!

By Those who belong …
Somewhere …” Down South ” … !!!

Does your …
Future Look … ” SWEET ” … ?!?

Or ….
Does it Look … ” BLEAK ” … !?!

I Believe … The words be …

“Yo, Keep It REAL !”

Do You … TRULY FEEL … ?
That You’ve … Got A … Good Deal … !?!

In The … ” Circle of Life ” …
That SPINS Like … Wheels …

The Cycle … REVEALS … !!!

While MANY … “conceal” …

What’s REAL …
From THEMSELVES … !?!

Is that what comes … ?
From … Financial Wealth … !?!

Now ….
Knowledge of … ” SELF ” …
Leaves Many … UNWELL … !!!

” Dark Moods ” …
And … ” ISSUES ” …

Because Many … REFUSE … !!!!!

To Accept …
What is … TRUE …

I Wonder … ?
I DO … !!! …

But …..
What About … YOU … ???

Do You …
Have The Time …
To … OBSERVE … The Signs … ?

These Days …
Most Now … DON’T …

And …
That is … NO JOKE … !!!!!

Do You Ever … ” Kick Back ” …
Like The … ” Cat In The Hat ” … ?

Well I’m … NOT That Chap … !!!

But DO …
FILL My … Notepad …

Like … SHAZAAM’ …
Just Like That … !!! …

With Wordplay that … ” Maps ” …
Ways … OUT OF … ” Badlands …………………………………..

CONTROLLED …..
By … ” Those mans’ ” …

Who …
Like To Set … “TRAPS” … !!!

My …
Well Written … Text …

And …
Will to … EXPRESS …

OFFENDS and UPSETS …

” Those ” … Ladies and Gents …
Who … “EMBRACE” … Governments … !?!

So …
Let me … Just Ask You …

Are YOU …
One of Them … ???

Well ….
I’ve … Come to … EXPECT …
That THEY … Will REJECT …

EXPRESSION … Like This …
That … Has it’s … OWN SECT … !!!

” Poetic ” …
Well YES … !!!

” Spoken Word ” …
When it’s … SAID … !!!

But …..
Let me just … STRESS …

It’s UNIQUE …
Like A … ” Gem ” … !!!

When I …
Pick Up … My Pen …
and … Choose to … EXPRESS …
When I write a … ” Poem ” …

I’m …..
MUCH MORE …. Relaxed ……………………………………….
Than A Cat … Who’s … ” Laid Back ” …

IN FACT …
I’m … ” So Cool ” …

WELL SCHOOLED …
and ….. So Shrewd ….

That MY WORDS ….
FRIGHTEN Jerks … !!!!!

and ….
DIRTIES … Their Shirts … !!!!!

I REJECT………………………………………….The ABSURD … !!!

So am … QUICK TO … Defer …

Meeting Humans … whose views …
and Visions … Are … Blxurrrrrrreeeedddd … !!!!!

I’d Rather … ” Confer ” …
with those who … PREFER …
To INDULGE in … REASON …
and … “WISDOM FILLED” … Words … !!!

While Most …
NOW Appear …

To …
RATHER NOT ……………………………………………. hear … !!!

ANYTHING …
That … CONFIRMS …
Their … DEEPEST … of … Fears … !!!!!

ESPECIALLY if …
What is …. BLUrrrRRED ….

Becomes … CLEAR …

FEAR … Rules MUCH …
“Within” … Humans …

And Leaves …
Some … STUCK … !!!
With … NOWHERE TO RUN … !!!!!

Well REALITY … IS …
The … ” Spice of Life ” …
And RIGHT NOW … Has …

A … NASTY BITE … !!!!! …

Which is WHY I Write …
The Things … I Write …
Through … Simple Rhymes …
Kind of Like … THAT GUY …
Whose Face is … FELINE … !!!

But MY … ” Poetic Style ” …
Has It’s … OWN DESIGN … !!!!!

That’s … NOT CONFINED …
By FEAR … or … Pride …

So …..
WHATEVER … The Box …

I’m … WAY OUTSIDE … !!!!
And That’s A … FACT … !!!!!

So Remember This … ” Jack ” .. !!!

” I’m The Cat …
WITHOUT … The Hat … !!! “

” Well Well Well ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 17/8/2005

Okay so, following on from my previous post …..

This was inspired by the, below stories….

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4157892.stm
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4158832.stm

However, when you look at current Whitehouse events,
they don’t seem to be, so far removed ……

So much for, ” The Don “, Bucking the trends of the …

” Status Quo ” … as I believe he indicated,
that Hilary C, would of maintained…..

Errr Hmmmm …..

Well, when it comes to Political Games, be they those, in the USA or the UK,
it seems to be the ….

” Same Ol’ Same ” …

Tut Tut now Mr. Trump,
surely you DIDN’T … LIE, to the good American People who voted for you ….. ?!?

LMFAOL ……. !!!!!!

Well Well Well…..

What can you smell … ???

ME … ?!?

I smell a … ” Crock of Lies “…
from … TOP LEVEL … Policing guys ……

I also smell … INCOMPETENCE … !!!!!!!!!

That’s why I wrote a poem …
and entitled it … ” Who’s Next ? “…

So people …
where’s your … ” Common Sense “… ?!?

Someone needs …
Some … ” Recompense “…

Right now … it’s …
… A Family …
whose son has died …

” IN A TRAGEDY !!! “….

Their son was living …
…. ” Happily “….

before he met …
…. CALAMITY …. !!!!!!!!!

This ain’t …
A … Doris Day … movie … !!!

This is cos’ …
He was … BULLIED … !!!
by those … ” clever “…
…. ” Met’ Police “….

NOT … like kids … !!!
with … Stupid Tricks …

but from … THIS …

REAL … Gun Bullets … !!!!!

This is … something …
TRULY … SICK … !!!!!!!!!

These are things …
They … DO Commit … !!!
to … EVERYONE … of colour …
Not just … ” Brazilian Kids “…

Ahhhhhhhhh…..

Let’s just get …
The Facts … CORRECT … !!!

He was … ” Asian “… ?!?
NO … ” African “… ?!?

Who Cares … !?!

He was …
An Immigrant … !!!!!

These are words
of … IGNORANCE … !!!!!

IGNORANCE …

is like … NONSENSE … !!!!!!

try using … THIS …

INTELLIGENCE … !!!!!

Better still …
Use … ” Common Sense “…

Who is it … !?!
that … ” Benefits “… ???

from a life …
of … Street Gunfights …

NOT … Black Folk … !!!

TRUST ME … that’s right …

How about … ?
TRUE … English Types …

Those who are …

WHITER …
than white … !!!

and …..
Hate to see …
Non-whites ….. in sight ….. ?!?

That’s a plight …
These … Racists Like … !!!
and then enforce …
with … ALL Their Might … !!!!

to put us … down …
in … English Towns … !!!

That’s why … So Many …
Young Blacks … FROWN … !!!

UNLIKE … most poets …
I’m … NO CLOWN … !!!!!!!

because my words …
buy souls … like pounds …

Who was bought … ???
this time around …

to keep … “the truth”…
inside … their mouth … ?!?

This is … REALLY …

… SICKENING … !!!!!

Even those …
who are … ” Legit “…
may get hit …
for where … they sit … !?!

NOT … with belts …
but with … BULLETS … !!!
or with … Axes … !!!
Think on that…

Racists … NEVER …
die like … THAT … ?!?

Watched … ALL NIGHT …
from … Council Flats …
by Police …
What’s up with that … ?!?

They take life …
with … Too Much … Stealth … !!!!!
while they just …

” Relieve “… themselves … !?!

Those are words …
that are … HEARTFELT … !!!

Check the report …
Your heart … will melt……….
if you’ve got …
Some … DECENCY … !!!

Unlike … YES …
These … MET’ Police … !!!!!!

who think … it’s right … ?
to simply be …

ABOVE … the law …

while people… Grieve… !!!

This poem…

comes from … MY ANGER… !!!!!

But …..
These Days…

Does it matter… ???

what we say …
or … what we do …
because our youth
are being … schooled …

in … PROPAGANDA …
NOT … The Truth … !!!!!

Trust me …
I am staying … ” cool “…

Your proof is …
how I … air my views …
Without resorting … to abuse …

Incitement’s … something …
for a …. FOOL …. !!!

This is … NOT …
something … I do … !!!

So just before ….
” They Try “… THAT ONE … !!!

Hatred is ……
something I …………………………………………………….

SHUN………………..

I write these things ….
for …. EVERYONE …

Don’t just … Trust …
… ” Technology “…

or these … KILLING … !!!
….. Met’ Police …..

QUESTION …. ??!??

what they … say to you …
make them … give you …

CONCRETE PROOF … !!!!!

Sift through lies …
to find … THE TRUTH …

Don’t buy into …
Lies they … SELL … !!!

Calm yourself …..
Take in …. ” GOOD SMELLS “…. !!!

and Remember … this poem …

Called ……

” Well Well Well “…….

Following on from my last post …… “Comfort Zones”, written by Big Virge 8/6/2005

You know …… ?
I need to pick … Bones …
… in these … Damned …

… “Comfort Zones” … !!! …

Do you think … Yours … ?
will save you … ? …
If … you’re … ON YOUR OWN … !!?!!

How can this place ?
…… Save You ….. !?!
from … NEW … Al Capones ?!?

or … Save You from those …
who … Don’t Want To … Atone …
for … Problems … they’ve made
like our lack of … “OZONE” …

This AIN’T … “Charlie Brown !?!”

……………” Linus ………….
Leave your towel … HOME … !!! ”

Folks what will you do … ?
If your comfort zone …

………. ” Blows ” ……….

… “UP IN YOUR FACE” … !?!

Just like … Farmyard Hay …
on a … “COLD” … Breezy Day … !!!

or … Youthful Aggression …
ends up … in …………….

… ” Your Plate ” … !???!

Let’s keep it … REAL …
… In Fact …
Let’s keep it … “TRUE” … !!!

cos’ … TRUTH … in the end ….
… will define … what is …

…….. “YOU” …….. !!!!!

A … “Comfort Zone” …

………… FOOL !!! ………..

or a …. ” Wise Man ” …. who’s …….
…………” Schooled ” ………..

” Schooled “… in what’s … FACTUAL …
and …. ” SCHOOLED ” … in the …

……….. TRUTH ……… !!!!!!!

“Truth as in …. ” Nature ” ….
NOT … “Technological Tools” … !!!

Like … Mobiles for … Children …
They’re being … “MISUSED” … !!!

These words … aren’t just …
…… My Views ……
These words … are … THE TRUTH …

Mobiles … are now used …
By …. “Ignorant’ …. youth …
to film … ” Violent Actions ” …

Just … check in the news … !!!

Don’t get it … Confused … !!!!!
You … CANNOT…. trust Everything …
in ….. News Reviews ….. !!!!!

But … Don’t Overlook …
These Types of … Issues … !!!!!

Can a … “Comfort Zone”… ?
……… ” Save You ” ……….. ?!?
from … Youthful Abuse … ?

Ignore … If You … Choose … !?!
But … Don’t ever say …
You … weren’t given … Clues …
on … How To … AVOID …
A case of … ” Muddy’s Blues ” …

Water is … ” Natural ” …
Rivers … Run Deep …
But … This is …

…… ” My View ! ” ……..

“COMFORT ZONES” …

You can … KEEP … !!!!!

They are … for the … WEAK …
who think … They … Can’t Weep … ???!???

I’ve …WEPT … for …

…. ” My Mother ” …. !!!! ….
Now she’s … Safe … in sleep …

You see …..
My Mother … was … Sick …
for … Most of my … Youth …
which is why … I’m so … Able …
to … Deal With … The Truth …

Sixteen … Odd Years … !!!!!

I Feared … Shedding Tears …
but now that i’m … Older …
I’ve dealt with … My Fears …

How many of … YOU … ?????
would prefer … Some … New Shoes …
rather than … have to … Deal With …
The things … I’ve … been through … ???

Seeing … Your Mother …
‘Distressed” … by her … Lover … ?!?

Who … RAN … undercover … !?!
cos he … “NEVER LOVED HER” … !!!!!

His … ACT … was a … “BLUNDER” …
He … CAN’T … Now … “RECOVER” …
cos’ … Anger … I HOLD ….
Now Rumbles like …. THUNDER …. !!!!!!

He’s in … his … “COMFORT ZONE” …
while your … Mobile Phone … “Roams” …

I don’t have … “Comfort Zones” …
or a … ” Million Pound Home ” … !!!!!

I’d rather be … “HAPPY” … !!!!!
and … NOT … Have to … MOAN ….

about … Tax … for my car …
Or The … “CONGESTION CHARGE” … !!!!!

I’m trying to … Make It …
and … ” SHINE ” …
like a … ” STAR ” …

Who …..

Doesn’t just say …..
… ” The Same ” …

” BLAH DI BLAH BLAH ” …. !!!!! ….

Did you laugh ….. ????? ……
Ha Ha Ha … !!!!

But Life … isn’t … FUNNY … !!!! …

Life’s moving … TOO FAST … !!!
TOO MANY …. Gun Blasts …. !!!!!

with … NO MORE …

” JOHN SHAFTS ” … !!!

TOO MANY … EMPIRES …. !!!!! ….
with … “VADERS” … For … HIRE …. !!!!!

TOO MANY … MP’S …. !!!! ….
Who … “NEED TO” … RETIRE …. !!!!

Too Many … of … US …. !!!! ….
With …. “Lustful” …. Desires … !!!!

Can you … FEEL MY FIRE … !?!
It’s … Making me … TIRED … !!!

I’M TIRED OF …. “TRYING” ….

when …. SO MANY …
Keep … “LYING” … !!!!!!

“LYING” …. to … THEMSELVES … ???!???
abou their …. “MENTAL HEALTH” …. !!!
because of … ” THEIR WEALTH ” … !!!?!!!

MONEY … is … “Paper” … !!!
It’s NOT … A Life Saver …… !!!!! …….

… I’m the … “BLACK” …
…. “CAPED CRUSADER” …. !!!!!

So ….
Do me … A FAVOUR…. !!!

REMEMBER THESE WORDS …. !!!

God is …. YOUR MAKER ….
But …. If You’re NOT … CAREFUL … !!!

He may be …

” YOUR BREAKER ” …. !!!

Read … IN BETWEEN … Lines …
STOP TAKING …. “Cokelines” …. !!!!!

Try talking ….
with a …. COKEHEAD …. ?!?

They’re …

” OUT OF THEIR MINDS ” … !!!!!

Repeating Themselves ….
Pretty Much …. ALL THE TIME … !!!!!

Now …. In these … LAST LINES …
are … Words for the … BLIND …

“Open” … Your Eyes …
and then … You’ll … REALISE …

You’re …. NOT ALONE …. !!!!!!
We … “ALL” … have to …
…. ” LIVE HERE !!! ” …..

Earth is … “OUR HOME” …. !!!!!

Don’t EVER … Presume …
You … DESERVE … what you own … !!!!!
and … “DON’T” … “EVER THINK” …. !!!!

You … DESERVE … Your own … “THRONE” …

cos’ those … who live like … THAT …
are … DOGS … Without Bones … ?!?

and These … are the …

…… ” FOOLS ” ……

Who … Live In …

“COMFORT ZONES” ….. !!!!
