“Switch” ... A Poem written By Big Virge 6/7/2020

It REALLY Is An AMAZING Thing... !!!
To See How QUICK Some People SWITCH When PRESSURE Liks’... !!!
And NOT The Type of Pressure That Brings... BAD Weather... !!!

I Mean The Type That Affects Mankind... !!!
And Women TOO... When They Switch Their Moods... !!!
In Times Like THESE Where A VIRAL DISEASE Has LOCKED DOWN Streets... !?!
It’s AMAZING To See How The LOSS of MONEY...
Has AFFECTED Heads Who CLAIM To Care Less About MONEY CHESTS And Bank Interest...
Because They SWITCH Like... IGNORANT Kids... !!!
When It Comes To CASH That They CAN’T Grab...
To Fulfil Their Plans To Do This And That...
It’s Really SAD To See People Get MAD And Start To Act...
Like An IGNORANT BITCH Who Is PRONE To SNITCH... !!!
Sometimes I DO WISH I Could Turn OFF The Switch...
That Inspires Scripts of Lyrics Like THIS... !!!

But The PROBLEM Is That It’s The Type of Gift That’s HARD To Resist... !!!!!
When I Start To Think And Suddenly LINK My Thoughts With Ink Or Of Course Typing...
Because of The SWITCH To TECHNOLOGICAL Things That Now EXIST Like This Virus Is... !!!
You See This Poetic Piece Has Been Inspired...
By The Things I’ve Seen Since This NEW DISEASE...
Has Started Putting OUT Fires of... Lives And Desires...
And BROKEN Dreams As Well As LIMITED Means...
of People Who NEED To Really Stay HEALTHY... !!!
Instead of Having To FEAR of Now Being TOO NEAR...
To... People Who Have Got THIS FLU... !!!
A SWITCH That In TRUTH Is Just NOT COOL... !!!
Because It’s Now REMOVED How We TREAT The People We’d GREET...
BEFORE This Disease SWITCHED Societies...
To Be... DISTANCED Beings Whose Switch Is Leaning...
To SWIFTLY DEMEANING... Historical Teachings...
Like Communicating WITHOUT All This... SPACING...
That’s Clearly FRUSTRATING A LOT of Locations... !!!
Where They’ve HAD TO SWITCH Because They Were TO QUICK To RE-OPEN Things... !!!
So Their Switch Now STINGS And May Now Be Bringing A SWITCH In... THINKING...
As SECOND Waves Start To RAISE The STAKES ALL OVER The Place... !!!
..................... Which Would Be A SHAME ................... !!!

Even Those Who CREATE Are SWITCHING In Ways That AREN’T So Great... !!!
Because They’re Trying To Play The Game In... NEW WAYS...
When Basically Things... Will Remain The SAME... !!!
SWITCHING Up Names And SWITCHING Up Tracks...
Instead of Sticking To FACTS And NOT Trying To Act...
As If They’ve SWITCHED How It Is That They THINK... ?!?
I’m NOT Switching My Vibe From... REALITY Rhymes... !!!
Because If The Cap FITS You KNOW You NEED To WEAR It... !!!
Because You CAN’T SWITCH Hit Like... BASEBALL Swings... !!!
Or Like Black Lives... That Only Matter When We DIE... ?!?
By The Hands of A Guy Whose Skin Tone Is WHITE And Has POLICEMEN Ties... ?!?
That’s A SWITCH That MY MIND... REALLY DOES NOT LIKE... !!!
What About Black Rhymes That DON’T Energise Vibes of Packing NINES...
And Running IGNORANT Lines About Gang Fights...
That SWITCH Like Tribes of The AFRICAN Type... !!!!!!!
That... DESTROY Lives And The Chance To UNITE...
I Mean... WHY OH WHY... ?!?
Do We SWITCH And Then DENY The TRUTH To Feed... LIES... !?!
In Chatter That Matters About As Much As These SLAPPERS....
Or These... Young Gun Clappers... !!!!!!
Who SHOULD Choose To SWITCH Targets And STOP Being So HEARTLESS... !!!
And MAYBE Then Black Lives And The Minds of Whites...
Might SWITCH From Fights of The... RACIST Type... !!!
And Then Guys Like I... WOULDN'T Have To Write...
About HYPOCRISY... Within Our Human Breed...
Because We’d Learn To FORGIVE And NOT Have To Live...
Like Some Kind of SNITCH Who Is FAR TOO QUICK When PROBLEMS Persist...
To Start To TWITCH... And Then SUDDENLY.....

Respect jaay.......

Just writing what i've been seeing, and experiencing in this CRAZY time for humankind, society is switching it up, and people, for the most part, are just acting up !

So I just used, " Switch ", as the buzzword to explain what I see going on !!!

Thanks for your comment !
