"It's Nice" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 24/11/2005

Ya Know .....

IT's NICE When People Treat You RIGHT ... !!!
By This I Mean RESPECT Your Life ... !!!

GIVE For FREE ... Reject Money ...
Simply Speak Without Trying To Teach ...

And Try To Reach For ... " LOVE and PEACE " ... !!!
And Look For Ways We Can AGREE ... !!!!!

It's Nice When People DO NOT Fight ..... !!!!!

Take Their Slice And Leave You YES An EQUAL Slice ... !!!!!

It's CLEARLY Time Some Are ... "CONFINED" ...
For Perpetrating ... GREEDY CRIMES ... !!!!!

It's Nice To See Them PAY THE PRICE ... !!!!!!!!

For Cherishing That Kind of Life ...

It's Nice To See A LOVING Wife ... !!!

And Fathers Who Are With Their Child ... !!!
And SHUN The Role of ... Paedophiles ... !!!!

And KEEP Their Child From Running Wild ...
Through DISCIPLINE And Use of Mind ... !!!!!

Instead of Using Government Styles ... !!!
Styles Like Theirs Are NOT SO WISE ... !!!
And CLEARLY Now Have Proved UNWISE ... !!!!

My Words Supply Such Lows And Highs ...
Even When They Are Inclined ...
To Make Me Call The Piece ... " IT'S NICE " ... !!!!!

Today Has Been A Day Supplied ...
With Things That Now Have Made Me Write ...
About NICE Things Within My Sight ....

I Woke Up Late FILLED Up A Plate ...
And Had Some Oats To Start My Day ...

Checked My Mail And Then Set Sail On Internet Sites ....
Looking For A Job That's Right ...
And WON'T Restrict My Wish To Write ... !!!

Applied For One I ... Kind of Liked ...
The Form Online Took Up Some Time ...
But When Completed ... Looked Alright ...

Then Went And Saw A Friend of Mine ...
Who Had Repaired My Home Phone Line ...

We Talked A Bit Exchanged Lyrics ...
About This Country's ... Poli-TRICKS ... !!!!!

Watched The News And Shared Some Views ...
Then Said ... "Yo Nev, I'm gonna let you chill, be cool ! "

He said ... "Relax, and hold some food ! "

I Did And Then He Said ... " Hold this ! "

He'd Wrapped Me Up A Piece of Fish ...
The Fish Was NICE And Went Down RIGHT ... !!!!

Later On That Thursday Night ...
I Left Him And Popped In The Pub ...

Then Saw A Man Who Understands ...
My Need To Use My ... " Creations " ...

He Is A ... " Prop Man " ...
On The Show ... " The Bill " ...

And Said,

"There are some roles to fill"
extras parts, for black upstarts"

He Said He Would Check Out The Coup ...
And Said He'd Try To Talk With Members of The Crew ...
And Find Out What I Need To Do To Get Some Work Acting The Fool ... !!!

I Told Him ... " Cool " ...
And Then Told Him Some Local News ...
A Child Had Died In My Old School ...
From A Heart Attack And That Was That ... !!!

That's NOT So Nice But Hey That's Life ... !!!!
And Helps Me Write My Rhymes Sometimes ...

Ya See Poetry NEEDS Energy ...
And Sometimes Needs ... REALITY ... !!!

This Gives It FEEL And .... " MASS APPEAL " ....
And Then Can Touch People Fo' REAL ... !!!!!!

It's NOT Always A Tasty Meal ..... !!!!
But Neither's Life Y'all Know The Deal ... !!!!!

But Nowadays When I Recite
I Now Know Some Enjoy My Sights ...
And Now ENJOY The Way I Write ... !!!!!!!

Some PRETEND And Are .... " Polite " ....

I'm Cool With That They're In A Plight ...
Their Conscience Clearly Has .... " BAD NIGHTS " .... !!!!!!

Hypocrisy Is Not So Nice ... !!!
And IS NOT Something I Invite ...
To Wreak HAVOC Inside My Mind ... !!!

Because Days Like THIS of POSITIVE Vibes ...
Help Me Design Poetic Rhymes ...
That Help Me Find A Place of LIGHT Within DARK TIMES ... !!!

Moments Like These I CAN'T Define Without Going Back To Earlier Lines ...
When We Do RIGHT And RESPECT LIFE ... !!!!!

Two Simple Words ENTER My Mind ...

So As I Leave ... I'll Leave Behind ...
Words Such As These ... These TWO .....

.... " It's NICE" .... !!!
