“Critical Thinkers” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 24/1/2021

Now I’m A Critical Thinker So REFUSE To Wear Blinkers...
When It Comes To Things That NEED ANALYSING... !!!
Well To ME They Do But It’s Clear That Most Choose...
To Just... ACCEPT What Government Heads...
Are Quick To Present As Being What’s Best...
To Apparently ...... HELP ...... !!!
When Cards That They’ve Dealt Haven’t Served Folks Well... !?!
So That’s An Example That... Just Like Miss Marple...
My Thinking Roams................................................................
And Investigates Quotes That Are Made By Those...
Who Behave Like HO’s To Gain Control And Power Broke... !!!
As If They Don’t Leave People Bones While They Claim Thrones...
For Stones They Throw From Their Glass Homes...
And That’s No Joke... Cos I’m The Kinda Bloke Whose Tone Ain’t Loc... !!!
I’m A SERIOUS Head Who DOESN’T Accept Weak Arguments...
Like Those Conveyed About Being Enslaved...
When It’s Clear That Blacks Are Quick To Attack...
Those Who Look Like Them... ?!?
Instead of Attempt To Use Their Strength...
To Attack White Men And Their Systems... !?!
And Africans Seem To... Only NOW See... ?!?
That What We Need Is To Stop The West...
From Feeding Disease And The Kind of Treatments That Embrace VACCINES... !!!
BEFORE They’re Used On Those In Europe As Well As... Americans... !!!
But Unfortunately They’ve Allowed The Chinese To Now IMPEDE...
African Progress By Allowing Them...
To Use Their Money To ONCE AGAIN DENY African Strength... !?!
It’s The Same Old Same That Bred Enslavement...
When Blacks Enslaved BEFORE White Folks Came... !!!
And That’s A FACT NOT Some White Lie That Can Be Denied... !!!
It’s Really Quite Sad To Now See That...
We’re Still Trying To Claim That THEY Are To Blame For How WE BEHAVE... ?!?
And Now DON’T Care About Words That Declare...
That OUR SELF HATE Was Put In Our Brains By Those With Pale Face... ?!?
When Dark Skins STILL Aren’t The Ones Instilled At The Top of Blacks Hills... ?!?
But Now That We MATTER It’s Okay To Be BLACKER...
Than Black Slave Masters And Those Who Gathered...
Blacks To Be SHACKLED And SOLD Like CATTLE... !!!
Cos’ When You Think About It And Check Bobs Lyrics...

What Did He Say Back In The Day... ???

.... “ Some Are Wolf, In Sheep’s Clothing. “ ....

And That’s Some Truth That He Was Quoting... !!!
When We Look At Black Youth Gang Wars ARE SELF LOATHING... !!!
Bob Also Said...

.... “ Man To Man Is So Unjust, Children, Ya Don’t Know Who To Trust ? ....
.... Your Worst Enemy, Could Be Your Best Friend, ....
.... And Your Best Friend, Your Worst Enemy ! ....
.... Some Will Eat And Drink With You, ....
.... Then Behind, Them, Su Su Pon’ You, ....
.... Only Your Friend, Know Your Secrets, .....
.... So Only He Could Reveal It “.....

And Those Are Words That Hold DEEP MEANING...
And Historically Are Those... REVEALING...
That Critical THINKING Is Something NEEDED...
When It Comes To Much That Currently Runs...
As Well As What Feeds Our Histories... !!!
It’s EASY To BELIEVE What Suits YOUR VIEW...
But Believing FALLACIES Can Taint The Truth...
So To CRITICALLY THINK Is Indeed A WISE Thing... !!!
And In Times Like These Where We’re Facing Disease...
Political Fiends And New Technology That May REPLACE... Humanity... ?!?
It’s NOT A Time To Embrace Wearing Blinkers... !!!
It’s One For WISE Minds... To Be...
