“Planes, Trains & Automobiles" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 10/8/2005

Taking The Train Is NOT Quite The Same...
Cos' I'm Now A DANGER In IDIOTS Brains'... !!!

Time And AGAIN...
It's The OLD... " Same Ol' Same "... !!!!!

People Look AT ME As If I'm To BLAME... ?!?
For Things That Have Happened On London Tube Trains... ?!?
How STUPID They Are They're Walking INSANE... !!!
Why Sit And Judge Me With Notions So LAME... ?!?

So How About... PLANES... ???
WELL The Games Are The Same... !!!

The VISION of ME Puts PRESSURE ON Veins...
Cos' Passengers CLEARLY AREN'T GLAD That I Came... !!!!!

ONCE And For ALL Let's Get This Thing CLEAR... !!!!!!
If A Bomb HITS YOU AND I... WILL BE Blown To B I T S... !!!!!
Maybe THEN You'll BELIEVE I'm NOT The... CULPRIT... !!!!!!!!

I Like A Plane Ride But These Days I'm AIR SICK... !!!!!!
SICK of THE GLARES And... COWARDLY Stares... !!!
SICK of Police Stopping Me EVERYWHERE... !!!

From Planes To Trains To Automobiles...
Oh And Just For You... " BADMAN "...
That Word Means... " My WHEELZ' "... !!!

What Is The Deal With Police And Our Wheels...
Why Do They TRY To Make EVERY Black Feel...
As Though Being Black Means That We Should REVEAL...

"How We Have Paid For, Our Nice Fancy Wheels ?"

SOME Brothers STEAL... To Drive FANCY Wheels....
But THAT ISN'T Me So Just LEAVE ME BE... !!!!!
STOP HARASSING Me On... EVERY STREET.... !!!!!
SEE... Here's The Dilemma We Face From Police... !?!?!?!

Laugh If You Like But This ISN'T Funny... !!!
If We Drive... BEAT UP Wheels...
We're Gonna Get STOPPED... !!!

If We Drive... FANCY Wheels...
We're Gonna Get STOPPED... !?!

So... Is There A Car...
That WON'T Get Us STOPPED...
By These... IGNORANT Cops... ?!?!?!?

The Answer Is... " Simple "...
.... OF COURSE BLOODY NOT.... !!!!!!

They'll Just KEEP ON Coming............................. ....
And That's Just... " Our Lot "...

They're On AUTO PILOT And Act Like Robots...
They've TRIED It With Me And QUICKLY Got SHOCKED... !!!

I DON'T Need A Gun Cos' My Brain's ALWAYS COCKED... !!!
And Ready To HIT THEM With LOGIC Like SPOCK... !!!!!

Put THEM ON THE SPOT And Watch How They... " PLOT "... !!!
To STICK Something ON YOU Just Like... " SUPERGLUE "... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes It AIN'T Easy To KEEP YOURSELF... " Cool "... !!!
So These Are Some Words Just For The... Black Youth...

DON'T GIVE THEM A REASON TO TRY IT WITH YOU !!!

KEEP Yourself LEGAL Fly HIGH Like An EAGLE... !!!
KEEP Tabs On Their Movements Use Logic That's.... LETHAL.... !!!

Play The NICE GUY But NEVER Be.... "shy"........
To Tell Them Some TRUTH...
When You KNOW That YOU'RE RIGHT... !!!!!!

Get GOOD Legal Help When DUD CARDS Are Dealt...
And CHILL In The Courtroom As Their STORIES... M e l t..................................

These ARE Some Words On Which You SHOULD Dwell.............................. .

... "YOUR HONOUR HE FELL AND DIED IN HIS CELL !" ...

These Are Some Words That Leave A FOUL SMELL... !!!
In Those Who Have LOVED YOU So PLEASE HEED Them WELL... !!!
Cos' These Are The Things They're... TRYING To Do...
PRESSURE Black Youth... Into Making WRONG MOVES... !!!

These Are TRUE THINGS And That's On The REAL... !!!

Whether On.............

" Trains or Plains, or in Automobiles "...
