” 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 … !!! “
