"Egos" ... A Poem written Big Virge 16/3/2005

Ya Know The Poetry Circuit’s SURE GOT Some... EGOS... !!!
Or Maybe Some Poets Shuv’ COC’ UP Their Nose... !?!
DAMN That ISN’T Your AVERAGE PROSE... !!!!!
Oops I’m NOT Britney...
Or NEEDING The Crack Pipe Like STUPID ASS Whitney... !!!!!!
I’m Feeling MORE LIKE An ABO’ Lost in SYDNEY... !!!
Now By This I Mean That People Seem MEAN...
Cos’ Praise Is Quite Rare On The... “ Poetry Scene “... !!!
Maybe It’s MY SHEEN That Seems SO UNCLEAN...
To Poets Who Look At Me Like I’m... OBSCENE... !?!
OBSCENE In Appearance...
OBSCENE In My Thoughts...
OBSCENE Cos’ My Attitude CANNOT BE Bought... !!!
Some Like To PERFORM But NEED TO Reform...
Their INFLATED EGOS And Get Back To The NORM... !!!
The NORM As In SEEING That They Should Be HUMBLE...
Before They Find Somebody Ready To RUMBLE..... !!!
And Then Their BIG EGO DECAYS Into RUBBLE... !!!
While Meantime I Sit Eating Grans’ Apple Crumble...
Cos’ Lyrics I’m Writing Keep BURSTING The Bubbles...
That People Are TRAPPED IN Causing Them TROUBLE... !!!!!
THESE Poetry PRO's Are SHOWING EGOS... !!!
So I Hope Their EGOS Are Earning Them Dough... !!!
Cos Poetry’s ONE THING But Earning’s ANOTHER... !!!!!
Don’t Y’all Think It’s Time For A POETS Big Brother... ?!?
Now I’m NOT James Brown But... Ain’t That A Mother... !!!?!!!
Poetic EGOS Living With One Another...
The Poetry Circuit’s STILL Undercover....
While RAPPERS Are Making SERIOUS Dollars... !!!!!!!
It’s EGOS That’s Hurting The Poetry Scene... !!!
But Craig Charles Has Shown It’s NOT JUST A Dream ...
A Poet Can Make Himself Cash... RECITING... !!!
And If You’ve Got PRESENCE Acting’s The Next Thing... !!!
Well Acting Is Nice But I Want A BIG SLICE...
of Pie That Tastes BETTER Than Basmati Rice... !!!!!!
OKAY That’s NOT PIE But Here’s Mud In Your Eye...
For Poets With EGOS Who Tell Themselves LIES... !!!!!
... “I’m really a star in the Poetry Scene !”
... “OK, yeah that’s great ! Keep washing my car !
... If you do a good job, I’ll give you five stars !”
See That’s Just A Story But AIN’T... “ Jackanory “... !!!
I’m Just Showing You EGOS TRULY BORE ME... !!!
I’m TRYING To Give Out POSITIVE Vibes..... !!!
Where Poets REVIVE Our Will To SURVIVE .......
With Poetic JUSTICE That RISES ABOVE...
Individuals Who SHOW They’re Willing To BLOW... !!!
A NEW POET........... Off...
Who They DON’T EVEN Know... ?!?
So THIS Goes To Show My Poetic Flow...
Is Built On HUMILITY... NOT MY....
