“Comedic To Me” ... A Poem written By Big Virge 12/9/2020

Now I Know Folks Are Saying That Black Lives Now Matter... !!!
But How Can This Be When This Only Happens...
Once Black Peoples Lives Are Flushed Down The Crapper... ?!?
NOT FUNNY I KNOW But You Must See The JOKE... !!!
Cos’ When Our Lives Are CHOKED Is When We MATTER To Folks... ?!?
Now Black Comedic Folks Who Call Britain Their Home...
CAN'T Even Get Shows Unless They’re ALONE WITHOUT Brothas' In Tow... !!!
And Comedic Sistas' Also Know How It Goes... !!!
When Those Who PROMOTE Are Letting Them Know...
That Their Jokes Should SIMMER..............................................
When It Comes To Their Race Or Their Religious Faith... !?!?!
Because Middle England Or Should I Say BRITAIN... !?!
Will Have RACIST Types Who Simply WON’T Like Their Comedic Lines... !!!
If They Are Designed To Shed LIGHT On Racist Vibes... !!!
Huh............... ?!?!?!?
And Then Comes The CHATTER That PROVES That These Quotes...
Are FUNNY When Hopes And Our Lives Get CHOKED...
And ABUSED By Those Blokes Who Are Known As... Five-O... !!!
WITHOUT Trips To HAWAII Or Meeting... Dan-O... !!!
So You See It’s Quite Funny When Quotes Like These Show...
That Just Like... " ET "... Our Homes Become THOSE Where WORMS Like To Go... !!!
DON'T You Find That FUNNY Cos’ It’s FUNNY TO ME... !?!
When White And Black Peeps’ Now PROTEST ON STREETS...
As If THIS Will REVIVE The LOSS of Black Lives... ?!?
When We've ALREADY DIED Due To CHOKE HOLDS And KNEES...
And Bullets That Leave Black People To BLEED Or UNABLE To BREATHE... ?!?
Now It’s JUST POETRY So DON'T Look At ME As If My Minds SICK...
DON'T You SEE That’s The TRICK All I’m Saying Is... THINK... !!!
About What Is FUNNY About POLICIES That Should Be In Movies... !!!
Just Look At The OSCARS Where Now It Seems Rosters...
of WINNERS MUST FOSTER Some... DIVERSITY... !?!?!
................... Are You Folks Kidding Me .................. ?!?
So ONCE You’ve GOT COLOUR You Can NOW PICK A Number... !?!
And KNOW You’ll Receive From The ACADEMY...
Awards JUST BECAUSE Your COLOUR Is DARKER...
Than Those Who DIE HARDER Than SAMUEL And BRUCE... !!!
Cos’ That ISN’T Cool It’s FUNNY And Seems To DEFEAT Being REAL... !!!
About Who Was BEST When They Worked On Film Sets... !!!
I Guess It’s JUST ME Who Thinks It’s FUNNY... ?!?
But Come On SERIOUSLY Is THIS What NOW FEEDS...
Black Lives Matter Themes That Want... EQUALITY... !!?!!
So What About ME When I Write Poetry That’s Said To Be DARK... !!!
Do I NOW Get A PASS To Act Like An ASS...
And Make These Remarks And Still Get FIVE STARS... ?!?
To Me It’s A FARCE Like A BLACK COMEDY... !!!
SHOOT Oops There I Go As If My Name's BRITNEY... !!!
Making HUMOROUS Quotes That’ll UPSET These Folks...
Who Have Lost People Close Which OF COURSE IS... NO JOKE... !!!
But THINK About What I Am Saying To You BEFORE LOSING Your COOL... !!!
If These PROTEST Movements Are Those Filled With PRUDENCE...
Why Are Blacks STILL LOSING Their Lives STILL TODAY In HORRIFIC Ways... ?!?
Now I’m NO COMEDIAN But WHERE Is The MEDIAN...
When It Comes To This Stuff Where LOSS of Black Blood...
ONLY MATTERS When We Are Left DEAD In The Streets... ?!?
................... Which AGAIN AIN'T FUNNY ................... !!!
Cos’ The Joke Seems To Be On People Who Speak...
About How We MATTER When Government Chatter...
Just Goes To Show That We ONLY FACTOR...
When We Become DATA For FUNERAL CHAPTERS... !!!!!
So Now You Can See Why This Poetic Piece...
Just Like It’s Title... Is...

...... “COMEDIC To Me”...... !!!
