“The Edge" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 8/1/2020

It’s True Like Ra’ Said...
You NEED To... " KNOW THE LEDGE "... !!!

Because A Lot of Heads...
Push To The EDGE To Be The BEST... !!!

It Has Caused Some STRESS...
That Has Led To Their Death... !!!
Because They Took THAT Step...
That... Brought Their END... !!!

Because They Stepped...
OVER... The Edge... !!!

From Famous Names...
Whose Claim To Fame Left Them So DRAINED...
That It Became A PAIN For Them To STAY SANE... !!!

So... Took COCAINE Until It Stopped Their Brain...
From Thinking STRAIGHT So Suicide Reigned Like...

......................... WILD Hurricanes ............................... !!!

You See Artistic Heads PURSUE GREATNESS...
But Some FORGET That There Is An EDGE...
That They SHOULDN'T Overstep... !!!

The Edge of INSANITY Just To PLEASE... Humanity...
A Pursuit That SADLY Leads To... TRAGEDY... !!!

When They Don’t Recognise...
That You.........................................

CAN’T Please EVERYBODY...
... ALL of The Time... !!!!

It’s Your State of Mind THAT An Edge Can BIND... !!!
As I Said Before To...... SUICIDE ...... !!!!!

The Famous Life Is...
EDGY And TRIFE' Just Like... Mobb Said...
The Five Star Life Has An EDGY Side That Most CAN'T Survive...

Unless They LIE And CONTRIVE Smiles...
Even When DEEP INSIDE They Don’t Feel Alright... !!!
There’s An Edge That Provides...
Some Women And Guys With A Wish To... "Hide"...
Who They REALLY ARE So Mark Their Own Cards...

...... Like Palpatine Did Darth ...... !!!

Edges SO DARK That They Break WEAK Hearts...
When They Are Asked To Take... DARK Paths... !!!!

THEY... Come And Go...
Some Who Tell JOKES And Host Live Shows..
To Those Whose Nose Snorts Lines of Coc’...

... Like That ... SCARFACE Bloke... !!!

And Most Now Know How His Story Then Goes... !!!
Sportsman TOO... More Than The ODD FEW... !!!

Get An Edge That DEFENDS A Whole Heap of NONSENSE...
That Make Some BUTTHEADS... NO BEAVIS Just Attempts...
To Play To The Edge of Being The Best... !!!!
But This In The End Can Cause PROBLEMS... !!!

When It Comes To The Friends Who Then See You Depressed...
When You're On YOUR OWN... WITHOUT Fame In Tow... !!!!!

Iron Mike KNOWS of The Highs And Lows...
of Letting THAT EDGE Lead You To LOW BLOWS... !!!

You See Some Make The MISTAKE...
of Thinking That Winning Has Such HIGH STAKES... !!!
That They’ll... Do WHATEVER It Takes... !!!!!!
To Be The Name Who Takes Centre Stage...

Well To Me That’s NOT The Way...
It’s A Game of... Give And Take...

YES An EDGE Can RAISE Your Game...
But Can Also... DAMAGE Your Brain... !!!
From Those Who... " ENTERTAIN "...
To Sportsman Who Get Paid A MILLION Dollar Wage... !!!

The Game Remains... THE SAME... !!!
To Be The VERY BEST... !!!
It Can Be The TOUGHEST Test... !!!
That Can Bring MUCH MORE Than Stress... !!!

If You DON'T Know When To SLOW Your Roll... !!!
And NOT............. Go OVER..................
