“These Days And Times” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 20/7/2020

In These Days And Times It’s Getting HARD To Find...
People On Whom... You Can TRULY RELY... !!!!!

Because of The Mood That’s Now Defining Life... !!!
COMPULSORY Orders To... PROTECT Borders... !!!
CONTROLS For Souls Now... LOSING HOPE... !!!
Due To LOSING Their Jobs And RISING Costs... !!!!!

So What Have We Got A... CORONA ROT... !!!
That’s TRULY SHOCKED And CLEARLY ROCKED...
The Lives of MANY... That Are Now UNSTEADY... !!!
In THESE Days And Times It’s Now HARD To Find...

........... TRUE Peace of Mind .............

Which Is Why I Write Rhymes To STOP My Brain...
From Going INSANE In These CRAZY DAYS... !!!!!
Because Its All A Haze And Now The Type of Maze...

That May Well Leave Some...
Finding Themselves STUCK With NO Place To RUN... !!!
It’s FAR FROM FUN Watching Governments Now DESTROY Freedoms... !!!

Because It Now Seems...
That They Want REGIMES That ALLOW Their Teams...
To DICTATE What’s Seen And... WHO Can Speak... !!!
But In Truth Isn’t That How Its... ALWAYS BEEN... !!!

Within Their So Called... “ Societies “...
So Now Theories... About CONSPIRACIES...
Are Those That Feed What MANY BELIEVE...

But The Sheople’ OUTNUMBER...
Those Who Refuse To Play The Roles of... DUMB And DUMBER... !!!
When It Comes To The Vibes of These Days And Times...
Where Racism IGNITES Like... DYNAMITE... !!!

And Is Causing FIGHTS All Because of Black Lives...
That Apparently MATTER... Once They Have... DIED... ?!?

So Now There Are Countries That Are FAR And WIDE... !!!!!
Where The Race Discussion Is... Reaching Minds...
Who Preferred To Stay Blind To How Ignorance Functions...
And STILL Affects Lives... WAY BEYOND Police Lines... !!!!!

It’s ALWAYS BEEN What Black People Have Seen...
But Suddenly APPARENTLY It Requires MORE TALK Than EVER BEFORE... ?!?
But In ALL HONESTY... It’s Beginning To BORE... !!!
ALL This TALK of CHANGE From... FAMOUS Names...
Who’ve Played The Game of... Waiting For A Train...
Or BANDWAGONS... For Them To JUMP ON... !!!

When They’ve Been Playing Along To Get To The TOP...
of These Industries Where Racism BREATHES Quite EASILY...................... !!!

As LONG As THEY... Were RECEIVING MONEY... !!!
There’s MUCH HYPOCRISY In Times Like These... !!!

So People Should Read.. BETWEEN The Lines... !!!
BEFORE They Find Themselves ALIGNED...
With The Types of Figures...
Who Are Really... SHAPE SHIFTERS... !!!!!
Or In Other Words... GRIFTERS...
Who Are Known To Be TRICKSTERS... !!!

And... Societal WINNERS...
Who Are The WORST Kind of SINNERS... !!!
Sitting At DINNERS With The Type of Thinkers...
Who Prefer To Wear BLINKERS...

Than To SEE THE TRUTH About RACIST Moves...
And The Type of ISSUES That Now... Confuse... ?!?
That Are Fuelling DARK MOODS... !!!
It’s A WHOLE NEW WORLD That Now... UNFURLS... !?!

And Has REARRANGED...
How The Game of Life Will Now Be... Played... !!!
Which Is Why I Find Myself Inclined To Sit And Write Rhymes...

About What Life’s Now Like...
