"Be Careful What You Do !" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 9/4/2015

These Words Are Ones On Which To ... " CHEW " ...

.... "Be careful what you do ! Be careful what you do !
.... If cops are in view, and you're being pursued !"

Because ...
NOW They'll SHOOT Like ADDICTS Do ... !!!!!!!

ADDICTED To KILLING of INNOCENT Victims ... !!!
INNOCENT YES ... Until GUILTY Is Said ... !!!!!

But Be CAREFUL What You Do When Dealing With The FEDS' ... !!!
Innocence CAN'T Protect Your Chest From BULLETS ... !!!
Cos' They FIRE At CHESTS Instead of At LEGS ... !?!

They SHOOT But MISS Arms ...
Instead ... They PIERCE HEARTS ... !?!

Their AIM Shuts DOWN Brains ... ?!?
In Similar Ways To Those Who DRUG TAKE ... !!!

But Make NO MISTAKE ...
They OVERDOSE Nowadays On EMPTYING Veins ... !!!
And Then Making CLAIMS Like ... " They Were AFRAID " ... !!!!

To ABSOLVE Them From Blame ...
When Juries They Face Have To Hear Them Relate ...

How ...

... "Blacks made them shake, so that's why they fired !" ...

Well This AIN'T ... " The Wire " ...
Or ..... " Spenser For Hire " ..... !!!

Their Murders Are REAL And Now Phone Cams' REVEAL ...
How They FABRICATE Like Uniformed LIARS ... !!!!!!

From DUGGAN In London To US Cops FRONTIN' ...
About How Their Function NOW NEEDS MORE Than Truncheon ... !!!!!!

Be CAREFUL What You Do ...
Cos' Cops Now ARE Sumthin' ... !!!!!

SHOOTING Old Dudes EIGHT Times Like it's COOL ... ?!?

And THAT Is Some TRUTH That's RARELY Produced ...
INSIDE Their Courtrooms To CONVICT Feds' Accused of MURDEROUS Moves ... !!!

Because Their STATUTE ...
Is What Constitutes THIS Type of ABUSE ... !!!

That RUNS Institutions ...
Where RACIST Collusions Have LONG BEEN In Use ... !!!!!!!

BEFORE They Could CLAIM ...

... " EQUALITY REIGNS " ... !?!

Be CAREFUL What You SAY ... !!!!!
Cos' THAT AIN'T The Way ... !!!!!!

Equality ISN'T Eight Shots In YOUR BACK ... !!!
Or FACING Gun Claps Just Because You're BLACK ... ?!?

Be CAREFUL What You Do When BLACKNESS Is YOU ... !!!!!!!!!!
And THAT IS More TRUTH Folks SHOULDN'T Confuse ... !!!!!

This ISN'T Some Stuff Black People ... " MAKE UP " ... !?!

We HAVE To Be Cool When FACING White FOOLS ... !!!!!
Who ARE SO INSECURE That They'll FIRE Fa' SURE ...

... Just Because We're BLACK ... ?!?

So We HAVE To Be WISE When It Comes To Our Buys ...
Be CAREFUL What You DO If You're Black And Get LOOT ... !!!

DON'T PLAY That Your Cash Makes You GREEN And NOT Black ... ?!?
DON'T Buy A Backpack If Trains And Their Tracks Are How You Make Moves ...

BRAZIL Knows The Coup About LONDON Cops Who LIE And Do WRONG ... !!!

Po' Po' Were The NEMESIS of ... Jean Charles De Menezes' ... !!!!!

An INCREDIBLE ACT They CANNOT Take Back ... !!!

They Left That Man FLAT ... !!!
Cos' They CLAIMED That ... " He Ran ! " ...

And Was About To COMMIT A ... TERROR Attack ... !!!!!!

" BE CAREFUL " ... Should NOW ...
Become The NEW SOUND When Police Sirens HOWL .... !!!!!

Because They're Like ... WOLVES ...
Now HUNTING In PACKS To TERRORISE Blacks ... !!!!!

They NEED Terror Laws For Po' Po' ... Fa SURE ... !!!!!!!!!!

Because What's .................................................... ignored .....
... IS TERROR THEY FLAUNT ... !!!!!

As If They Have Rights ... " Saintly and DIVINE " ... ?!?

To KILL Who They Like ... UNLESS They Are WHITE ... !!!
OKAY Whites Die TOO ... But Like Asian Dudes ...

How MANY Get SHOT Just Like WALTER SCOTT ... ?!!!?

Well That's ALL I've Got For THIS ... " Mini - Play " ...

" Be Careful What You SAY " ... PRE-DATES This Wordplay ... !!!

But BOTH Are In TRUTH Poems That Give PROOF ...
That ORDERS And Moves Are REALLY NOT NEW ...

But That MODERN News SHOWS IGNORANCE Brews ... !!!
So We CAN'T Continue To Let Being HUMANE Get FLUSHED DOWN THE DRAIN ... !!!!!!

Or To EMBRACE These Sayings YEAH Ones Like ... These TWO ...

" Be Careful What You Say ! " ...

And ......

" Be CAREFUL What You DO ! " ...
