"Calm" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 18/9/2005

Ya Know I’d Rather See... " CALM "...
Than ... ALL THIS ALARM ... !!!!
MORE Welcoming Arms...
LESS Guns In Young Palms...
The Use of Napalm...
Has Left MANY HARMED... !!!

New Orleans Has Now Got Bodies To Farm...
THAT Line Deserves PSALMS...
Cos' Those Who Have DIED...
Have LOST Lucky Charms... !!!

But Hopefully Now...
Are RESTFUL And CALM...

NO NEED For Gendarmes Or... Government YARNS...
NO NEED Now For Money Or... EXPENSIVE Garms'...
See These Are The Things We NEED To............... DISMISS.....
Luxuries Leading To Peoples Killings... !!!
How Can We Expect To Serve and Protect...
When People AREN'T HAPPY Because of Their DEBTS... !!!!!
Most People Are FRIGHTENED To... Write Out A Cheque...
Cos' If You’re In The Red The Bank Then COLLECTS... !!!!!!
EXTORTIONATE Charges Leave People... UPSET... !!!
People AREN'T CALM... Because They Are VEX... !!!
Why Use Direct Debit Or Have Cards For Credit... ?!?
I’d Rather Have Dinner With... Old Norman Tebbit’... !!!
Of Course That’s NOT True Cos' He WASN'T Cool...
With Black Guys Like Me With... Differing Views... !!!
Views That AREN'T Clouded By... BIASED Reviews... !!!
Reviews That We See In... EVERYDAY News...
DON’T Get It Confused I USE News Reviews...
To RAISE THE PROFILE of... CERTAIN Issues... !!!
I’ve Said It Before... I’ll Say It AGAIN... !!!
Your Everyday News Is NOT Always TRUE... !!!
But Certain Things CLEARLY Require... NO CLUES...
Like MURDEROUS Acts Or RACIST Attacks... !!!
Just Like The Ones Where Those FOOLS Used An AXE... !!!
I’m SAD About That But THIS Is A FACT... !!!
It’s HARD To Stay Calm If You’re A Young Black... !!!
But Blacks NEEDS To Learn To Make The Worm Turn... !!!
Some White People CLEARLY Are Keen To Discern...
What It Is They Can Do To ... LIGHTEN Our Mood ...
So DON'T Think That We Can Ever Be... FREE...
WITHOUT Showing LOVE Well You May Not Agree...
But CALMNESS Is KEY As Is... UNITY... !!!!!
Take That Advice... PLEASE Have It ON ME... !!!
PEACE Is The Answer As Is A GOOD KARMA... !!!
EVEN With Your Woman She LOVES When You CHARM Her... !!!
A SMILE And A Grin Is Where This Begins...
We Need To STAY CALM When With Our Women... !!!
It’s NOT Always EASY But Who Said It Was... ?!?
It’s Kinda Like Finding The... " Wizard of Oz’ "... !?!
It Lies DEEP WITHIN NOT IN Books of Hymns... !!!
These Days I’m Inclined To Channel My Mind...
To... LOVING Mankind Rather Than Walk In The Land of The Blind... !!!
Cos' Walking With Them Means You Walk A Fine Line... !!!!
A Line WITHOUT Calm And Glasses of Wine...
A Line Where You’ll Find Yourself TRAPPED In A BIND... !!!
A BIND Where Your TRAPPED Behind... ENEMY Lines... !!!
So Who Are Your Friends They May Be Your End... ?!?
Friendships Aren’t Meant To... FUEL ARGUMENTS... !!!
A TRUE FRIEND Is Someone Who Is... HEAVEN Sent... !!!
But How Many of Them Do We... REALLY Have... ???
When Young I Was Told To... Look In Your Hand...
Your Fingers And Thumb When Added Make FIVE...
You’ll Be LUCKY To Have Five TRUE FRIENDS In Your LIFE... !!!!!
It Seemed So Contrived To Be So PRECISE... !!!!!!
But Now That I’m Older It Seems To Be RIGHT... !!!
People Will... "Tell You", That They Are... " Your Friend "...
But When You're In TROUBLE... How Many of Them... ?!?
Will Make A Case For You And Build Your DEFENCE... ?!?
This ISN'T The Way I Want This To End ... !!!
So Let Me Do This With Words That Transcend...

... We NEED LESS Alarm...
... We NEED To Link Arms...
... We NEED... UNITY...

And This I Believe Will Bring....

............................ " Calm " ........................
