"A Different Angle" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 6/9/2006

One Day A Friend Said To Me....

“ Your Thoughts Big V, are deep and ample,
but to get them through to people, you should try a different angle ! “

By This She Meant My Presence Is LARGE And My Words Hit HARD... !!!

Because My Voice OUTWEIGHS My Poise... !!!

So Having Thought About The Way...
Most People REACT To My Wordplay ...

I Had To Say WITHOUT Delay... !!!!
That Most Perceive Me To Be An ANGRY Human Being... !!!!!!

So... Why Is That When I’m SO Laid Back... ?!?
It Still Seems That Being Black And Articulating FACTS...

THROWS FEAR FILLED PACKS Back To Their... CRACK... !!!!!!!
Be It From The PIPE or.... Through A Mic’.....

These Bourgeoise Types....
CLEARLY Seem To DISLIKE The Words I Write..... !!!
UNLIKE THE POOR Who Smoke Crack Like...
Their DOING IT Is.... Food For Life.... ?!?

My Words Fa SURE Sometimes CRACK Minds... !!!!!
Like Superman CRACKS When He Sees KRYPTONITE.... !!!!

So Messages Through Scripts I Should Perhaps... " Dangle "... ?
So That People Can GRIP Or BETTER STILL Get A HANDLE... !!!
of... What It Is My Pen Transmits Well I’m NOT CONVINCED... !!!
That This Will Help Because I NEED To Be TRUE To Myself.... !!!!!!

If People DON’T GET IT What Can I Do.... ???
Other Than STICK To MY Version of The Truth... !!!

Can’t Please The Masses Til’ They CHOOSE To Be PLEASED... !!!!
That’s The Way Currently Things Seem To Be.... ?
Or... Is It That THEY Are REALLY AFRAID... ?
of People Who Say What They Want To Say... !!!!!

It’s CLEAR These Days MOST Want To ENTERTAIN... !!!
So That They Can Get PAID For Their CLOWN LIKE Displays... !!!

Well To ME That’s An Angle FILLED WITH FAKES.... !!!!!!
BAD APPLES And Snakes And Those Who... CLAIM...

“ They’re Not About Fame ! “ …

But Make Their Way Through Government Pay... ?!?
It’s All A Game of DIFFERENT Strains And DIFFERENT Veins...
Maybe One Day The Game Will Change... ???
But Those Like Me... Will Stay The SAME... !!!
And Try OUR BEST To WAKE UP Heads... !!!!!!!
My Angles DIFFER From ALL THE REST... !!!!!
Because I DELIVER In The Face of PESTS..... !!!!!
Who Choose To ... REJECT..................................

My Use of Rhyme And INTELLECT....
I QUICKLY STRANGLE Their DEFECTS..... !!!
Through Use of Simple... “ Common Sense “...

Which Helps UNRAVEL Their OBSTACLE Tests... !!!
So That I Can PASS GO And YES.... “ Collect “.....
A HEALTHY Cheque of REAL RESPECT... !!!
From Those IMPRESSED By My Use of Text...

My Style Is CLEARLY Angular When Using My... Vernacular...
In FACT It’s Quite SPECTACULAR With BITE Just Like Count Blackula’... !!!

So Me I Think I’ll Be STRAIGHT UP Even When I OFFEND Some... !!!
Because My Thought Waves Leave Them SHOCKED... !!!
When Words I Link... CONNECT The Dots... !!!

Or Maybe I Should... “ Change My Tone “... ?

... “ You’re Too Aggressive ! “ …

.... “ Here we go !
.... What’s your problem with my prose ?
.... It’s not my fault it rocks your boat ! “

... “ See what I mean, you’re Too Dark V ! “

.... “Listen up man, that’s just me !
.... I like my personality ! “

I Deal In TRUTH And Honesty...
While Most Indulge In FANTASIES...

FALSE Prophecies... Spoken FAECES... !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Their Poetry’s A TRAGEDY Because It SHUNS...........

............................. “ REALITY “ ...................................

Like JANE They Bring CALAMITIES ... !!!!!
I Devise Angles CONSTANTLY...
That Leave These Dummies Seeing GREEN.....

GREEN With ENVY.... JEALOUSY..........

So Big Virge CHANGE To... “ Play The Game “...
The Word I BELIEVE Is..... UNLIKELY ..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Self Belief Does NOT Exceed...
Humility... That Rests In Me... !!!
Because I’d Like My Words To REACH...
A Part of YOU That HELPS You SEE...
The PURPOSE of... My Poetry...

My Form of Speech May Seem ANGRY...

But... Take A Sec’.........................
BEFORE Judging My Poetry... !!!
Do I Really PROJECT An ANGRY MAN... ???
Who’s ALWAYS VEX... I’m FAR From THAT... !!!

In Actual FACT I’d Like To See...
MORE OF US Step BACK...
Rather Than Make ATTACKS.......
Due To Stereotypes Inside Our Minds....
That... WE KNOW AREN'T Right... !!!

Being Paranoid’s CLEARLY NOT A Smart Choice... !!!!!
And Is A Track We NEED To.................................. AVOID... !!!!!

My Words CLEARLY STRANGLE Those Who CAN’T Handle...
Views I EXPRESS That Are... PERFECTLY SCRAMBLED.... !!!

But REALLY Does This Mean I Should... “ TRY “... ?

............................ “ A Different Angle “ ............................. ???
