“Free of Constraint” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 8/7/2020

Now There Really AREN’T...
So Many Who Can CLAIM That What They Create...
Is TRULY ... FREE OF CONSTRAINT ... !!!

ESPECIALLY Those Who Choose To Entertain... !!!
Because Artists Are CLEARLY NOT THE SAME... !!!
So DON’T Play The Game To Gain Industry Fame... !!!

It’s Just A CRYING SHAME That In This Modern Age...
That There Are Still Constraints On What People Can Say...
When It Comes To The Ways of The World Today...

Like These CANCEL Brigades Now Making Waves...
About What Is Said By Women And Men...
Who Entertain And Create In Various Ways...

From Comedians To Media Heads...

Constraints Now Play A DANGEROUS GAME... !!!
Where Freedom of Speech Is Being Placed In... “RESTRAINTS”... !!!

So The SLAVERY Game DOESN’T Seem To Have CHANGED... !!!
Nowadays The CHAINS Surround Homes And Gates...
And Now Are Things That Some Folks Call BLING... !!!
Now Those Are DEEP Lyrics Upon Which You Should THINK... !!!
And RECOGNISE The LINKS That TRULY STINK... !!!!!!!!
Because Back In The Days Wasn’t That The Way That Slaves HAD To Behave... ?!?
Who Were ENSLAVED And Mentally CAGED... ?!?
I Guess The Pictures I Paint Are Just FAR TOO BRAVE... !!!
So Fall FOUL of Constraints That Are NOW In Place... !!!

... "DON’T Speak About THIS !
... DON’T Speak About THAT !
... If You Say That Again,
... You’ll Get NO MORE CASH !

... “Okay, sorry massa’, I deserve a few lash !”

It’s Constraints Like These That May KILL ARTISTRY... ?!?
Due To The CANCEL Police And The..... LGBT..... !!!
I Mean... SERIOUSLY... ?!?
Are They Really ABOVE The Ideal of FREEDOM... !?!
When It Comes To Speech And Creative HONESTY... !!!!!!!
But How Could They Be When Their Closets Run DEEP...
With Secrecy And The Type of DECEIT That’s Truly HARD To BELIEVE... !!!
Having Families And DENYING The TRUTH...
Until NEW Policies Have Allowed Them To...
DICTATE What’s Said By Creative Heads...
Well They Can KEEP Their Markets...
Cos' I’m The Type of Artist...
Who DOESN’T Believe That Any Artistry...
Should Ever Be CONSTRAINED... !!!
Like... Slaves In Chains... !!!
Cos’ In This Day And Age...
These... CANCEL Brigades...
Seem To Want The WHOLE STAGE......
So That ONLY THEY Can Entertain And Get Paid...
And Say What THEY Wanna Say... !!!

...... “ FREE of Constraint “ ...... !!!
