“Tensions” ... A Poem written By Big Virge 24/7/2020

Now I Think That I Should Mention...
That Tensions Have STRENGTHENED In These CRAZY Times... !!!
Because of The PRESSURES of … Modern Life... !!!
Masks Now In Sight Daytime And Night...?!?
That NO LONGER Surprise Or Give People FRIGHTS... ?!?
But There’s An Off Key Vibe That Currently Rides...
When You Go Outside And The Sun Now Shines...
I Have To Be Honest It’s One That I DON’T Like... !!!
Cos It’s NO COINCIDENCE...
That A Word Like STRESS Is One That Rhymes With TENSE... !!!
Because TENSION And STRESS Are Clearly CLOSE Friends...
And Clearly Now Rests In A LOT of Humans... !!!!
Talking of Friendships When Tension... LIFTS...
It Seems That What Happens Is Worse Than Gun Clapping... !!!
It Can Make Combatants Because of Detachments...
That Seemed Hard To Imagine BEFORE Tensions Captured...
And Caused The Type of Fractures That Come From The Battles...
That Tension CAN’T Handle That Are QUICK To DISMANTLE... !!!
Mind States That Are..................... “ Fragile “ .....................
And DON’T Get It Confused The STRONGEST Dudes And Women TOO...
Prove That Tension Moves And Creates DARK MOODS... !!!
In People WHO............... Are Usually COOL.....
Because Strength of Mind Is Subject To DECLINE...
When Tension Rides HIGH Like The Sky...
And Has No Time To Recognise Or Sympathise With The Wisest Guys...
Whose Tensions Tend To Use... WEAPONS... !!!
But Tensions Now SURROUND Race Rows And World Lockdowns... !!!
And Policies That People Now Flout Across... Various Towns... !?!
Even Though They KNOW That CORONA’s Around... !!!
And NO... NOT The Drink That Makes Bottles Clink... !!!
The One I’m On About Is The Virus That’s Found...
PROTEST Grounds That Now Confound As Well As Dumbfound... ?!?
That’s Bringing Out Crowds Who Are Shouting OUT LOUD...
Cos’ They’re Trying To DROWN The Sounds of Government Mouths...
Who Seem Willing Now To Send The Feds’ Out To Use Tear Gas Rounds... !!!
That Are Causing TENSIONS To Now KEEP Spreading FAR And WIDE... !!!
Which I Guess Is Why I’ve Written These Rhymes...
About This Thing That CLEARLY NEEDS To LESSEN... !!!
The PROBLEM of What Seems To Have STRENGTHENED...
The DISTURBING RISE of These... GLOBAL...
