What is with ......
All This ATTITUDE ... ?!?

It Seems The In Thing ...
To Simply Be RUDE ... !?!

People In The World ...
Are Now So Crude .... !!!!!!!

Girls Now Walk Streets ...
With Arses In View ... !?!

Prostitution's RIFE ...
But This Isn't New ... !!!!!!

So .... If You Have A Bad Attitude ... !!! ...
May I Ask ... " What's Wrong With You ? " ...

Do You Feel Misled ... ?
Are You Feeling UPSET ... ?

Do You Feel That Your Life ...
Is Just A Pretence ... ?

Do You Feel As If ...
You'd Be Better Off DEAD ... !?!

Well If You Do ... ?
It's Not Just YOU ... !!!!!

But It's NOT COOL ...
To Act The Fool ...
And Live Your Life ...
With ATTITUDE .... !!!!!

If Life's So Rough ...
And You Wanna Act Tough ...

Get In THE RING ... !!!!!
Try On Some Gloves ...
And If It Suits ...
Make WAR NOT Love ... !!!

I riSE ... abOVE ...
This ... Attitude Stuff ...

But Many Suggest ...
I'm ... Billy Goat Gruff ...

This AIN'T ... " Call My Bluff " ... !!!!!

But I Guess It's Cos' ...
I'm NOT WHITE Enough ...
To Be So Cool ....
And NOT Wear Cuffs ... ?

Presumption Can Make ...
People Give ATTITUDE ... !!!

So .....
Don't Just Assume ...
Cos' This Might Be ...
Your LAST MISTAKE ... !!!!

Attitude That Arises ...
Because of Assumption ...
Can Leave Men With Truncheon ...
WITHOUT Their Heart Function ... !!!

Cos' ATTITUDE Quelled ...
Will Then Reach COMBUSTION ... !!!!!

So PLEASE Don't Assume ...
When You Enter A Room ...

Read This CLOSELY ... !!!
Cos' When You Assume ...

You Just Make An ASS ...
of ... Both You and Me ... !!!

Did You Read It CLOSELY ... ?!?

Break That Word Into Three ...

ASS ... " U " ...
and Then ... ME ... !!!

Reminds Me of A Word ...
YES That Word ... " His - Story " ...

Just Look At News Stories ...
And You Surely MUST SEE ... ?!?

ATTITUDE's Runnin' ....
On Streets TOO FREELY ... !!!!!

Even On Terraces ...
.... In Italy .... !?!

Inter ... or ... A.C.
Which Fans Can It Be ... ???

I'm Told These Fans Attitude ...
..... FRIGHTENS POLICE ..... !!!!!

So .....
When They're Supposed To Use ...
........... BRUTALITY .......... !!!!!!

They'd Rather NOT Use It ...
But ... Bring It To ME ... ?!?

Kind of Like People ...
Who Do ... Poetry ...

From Trying To Act ...
Like They Like What I Read ... !!!

Until I Write Words ...
That DISTURRRBBBB Their Chi ... !!!

Attitude ... ISN'T ME ... !!!
Come On Don't You See ... ?

My Name Is ... " Big Virge " ...
Friends Call Me ... " Big V " ...

But ....
Unless I've Told You ...

You'd Better Use ... VIRGIL ... !!!

Unless You Are Ready ...
To Fall At ... That Hurdle ...

This Isn't ... " The National " ...
My Poetry's ... " Rational " ...
As Are My Thoughts ...
Which CANNOT Be Bought ... !!!!!

So ....
Ideas That You Court ...
of ... Any Such Sort ...

Take My Advice ....
it's Time To ABORT ... !!!!!
Cos' Attitude's RIFE ...
When My Temper Runs Short ... !!!!!

So Maybe It's Time .... ?
To Leave You ... " This Thought " ... ???

Attitudes' Crude ...
And Is Something For FOOLS ... !!!

Who Think Being Rude ...
Is Now The ... " New COOL " ... ?!?

Well ....
Check Out This View ... !!!

You're NOT Being Cool ... !!!
You're Acting THE FOOL ... !!!

Now If You're A Female ... ?
PLEASE ... Refuse To Use ...
This Needless Abuse ... !!!

But If You're A Male ... ?
Just Be A Cool Dude ...
and Just Do What's Right ... !!!

REMOVE ... !!!

... " Attitude " ... !!!!!!
