"Figures, Words and Pictures" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 19/6/2007

It Has Been Said That... " Words Paint Pictures "...

Well CERTAIN Pictures Reflect FACTS...
But CERTAIN Numbers Make Me Wonder...
What's The Deal Are These Figures... REAL... ???

" 666 "... Is The Mark of The BEAST ... !!!
But... " 999 "... Calls Out The POLICE... !!!

" 666 "... " 999 "... Take A Minute.........
REWIND... And OPEN Your Mind...
If You FLIP Three Sixes On Their Head...
THINK About THIS What Do You Get... ???

Does The DEVIL Enlist Policewomen And Men... !?!
9/11 Saw The Towers... ROCKED... !!!
And NINE ONE ONE Calls Out THE COPS... !!!
Well Since THAT DAY It's Been THAT WAY...
PO-LICE States... ALL OVER The Place... !!!
SIRENS Here And SIRENS There...
In FACT Police Sirens... EVERYWHERE... !!!!!!!!!

While CERTAIN Words Are USED To BLUR...
And Cause A STIR By... AIMING SLURS...

... "Be wary of men, with beards and rucksacks ! ...
... Especially if, they're Asian or Black !" ...

"What's up with that ?
Clean shaven or not, blacks still get stopped !
Just check the stats, you know that's fact !"

See Things AREN'T REALLY What They Seem...
Words And Numbers Sometimes PLUNDER... !!!
Ask A Scheming... THIEVING Plumber... !!!!!
See It's CLEARLY A SKILL To Use Pen Or Quill...
To Make Words Paint Pictures Through Your Scriptures... !!!

MANY TRY But Just Can't Find.....
A Way To Make Words Create VISIONS That Work... !!!
Like FINE ART Does When It Touches Someone... !!!
From Impressionists To........ Graffiti Artists .........

GREAT Lyricists Paint Pictures Like This...
While Economists And MOST Journalists...
Paint Pics' With Things Like... " STATISTICS "... !!!!!!

Statistics CAN Be USED To TRICK...
As Well As Confuse... That's POLITICS... !!!!!

It's A Game of NUMBERS And of WORDS....
MILLIONS SUFFER... While THE REST Prosper............

By The REST I Mean A Minute Few... !!!
Who ABUSE The Dream While Majorities FEUD... !!!!!!

My Use of Rhyme INFUSES Minds...
With Visions of... Humanities Crimes... !!!!!!
SOLUTIONS Well That's Down To YOU... !!!
I Merely Sell MY... " Point of View "...
Through Scriptures Built To Give You Clues...
About What FILLS Perceptions' Boots... !!!

What YOU PERCEIVE May NOT BE True... !?!
What YOU BELIEVE May Have You FOOLED... ?!?

THINK It Through............................ ...
Is REALITY What You CHOOSE To SEE... ?!?
Or Is It Simply... What You FEEL... ???

Within My Heart Like I Said At The Start...
These Days I Feel Like What's The Deal... ?

So MANY LIES Are Now Contrived...
To KEEP What's REAL From Peoples' Lives...
That Words Like THESE Are Seen As Being...

A THREAT To NATIONAL SECURITY... !!!

It's AMAZING To Me How FALLACIES...
FEED Peoples' FEARS Like Conscious Speak Falls On... DEAF EARS... !!!

How Many Years Has It Been This Way... !?!?!
From Slavery Chains To Todays' PEERS...
MANY CHOOSE To Hide Behind Veneers...
EVEN When... The Picture's CLEAR... ?!!!?
Money HOLDS So MANY Souls... !!!
That Peoples' Hearts Have Turned ICE COLD... !!!!!

It's COLD In The Dark And REALITY's STARK... !!!
If POLICE Charts See Your... " I.D. Card "...
And It Has A BLACK MARK Underneath Those CHARGED...
As........................... TERRORISTS At Large ........................... !!!

What You Buy Into May Confuse You... !?!
So Be MINDFUL of What You Choose... !!!
Be It TV News Or Technological Tools...
What You INFUSE May CLOUD Your Views... ?!?

But Through My Art My Words IMPART...
A Number of Scriptures Enlisted To TRIGGER...
CLEAR VISIONS... " Within Ya' "... !!!

By Using Some...

" Figures, Words and Pictures "...
