"Let's Get Things Straight" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 26/2/2006

A Report I've Read Today ...
Has Left Me Feeling Quite AMAZED ... !!!!!

Forces Types Who Have Some Stripes ...
Appear To Take Drugs Like COCAINE ... ?!?
Or OTHER Drugs Classed As YES ... " Class A " ... !!!!!

Well Once They're of A CERTAIN Rank ... !!!
In An ... EXCEPTIONAL Circumstance ... !!!
Are NOT To Be Told They've GOT TO GO ... !!!

The Ideas Being SOLD They Should Get REHAB ... !!!!!

And Then Kept On When Assessed To Be ... " STRONG " ..... !!!?!!

Now Don't Get Me Wrong But What's Up With THAT Plan .... !!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!
Are Drug Dealers INSIDE Their Camps Offering Speed Cocaine And .... CRACK .... !?!

Are They People They Now Enlist ... ?!?
If You Want The List Try ... " M.I.6. " ... !!!

They Seem To Hold The Keys To All This ...
And Over The Years Have Given Young Kids This Type of FIX ... !?!

"Who's up for some L.S.D. ?"

"Come on sarge, stop teasing me, it helps me deal with things I see !"

But Later On When That Life's GONE .................................
They CANNOT SLEEP Because of BAD VISIONS In Their Dreams ...

" Apocalypse Now " ... Proved This To Me ... !!!

Well ... Like ALI They'd Better BELIEVE ..... !!!!!!
I'll NEVER Join Their ... DRUGGED Armies ... !!!!!

NO Wonder A Wealth Have KILLED Themselves ... !!!
The Drugs They're FED AFFECT Mental Health ... !!!

They've Seen BLOODSHED And LOSE Their Friends ...
And Do This For These ... " Government Men " ...
Who WATCH This Stuff On ... " News at Ten " ... ?!!!?

They Should Present THE DEAD To THEM ... !!!!!
Leave Them Lying In THEIR Beds ... !!!!!

I Bet They'd QUICKLY LOSE Their Heads ... !!!!!

This Simply Proves They USE And ABUSE ...
And Send Forces Once DRUG Induced ... ?!?

These Days The News Leaves Me Confused ... ?

"DRUGS ARE BAD ... DRUGS ARE BAD ... !"

EXCEPT For CELEBS And OUR Army Lads ... !?!
So What About Blacks Who They Say SELL CRACK ... !!?!!

There's CLEARLY A NEED In Forces Camps ... !!!!!
Would Our Officials Sanction THAT ... !!?!!

That Could Be A NEW ... " Rehab Scheme ... ?!?
Crack Dealing CRIMINALS Supplying Our SENTINELS ... !!!

Isn't That ... CREDIBLE ... ?!?
They'd Kill Two Birds With CRACK And SPEED ... !!!
Keep The Dealers OFF Our Streets .... !!!!!!!!
And Use REHAB TEAMS Like ... " Property " ...
Make A THRIVING INDUSTRY .... !!!!

One That Could Take Squaddies Money ... !!!!
Then Of Course A KNIGHTHOOD For ME ... !!!!!!!

For Contributions To CHEMISTRY ...
And Policies For HEALTH And COMMUNITIES ... !!!!!

THANK YOU That's GREAT But ... " LET'S GET THINGS STRAIGHT " ... !!!

Who On Earth Thinks It's OKAY To Send Forces To War ...
When They're Quite SURE of DRUGS They Take ... !?!

CHEMICAL Weeds And OTHER ... " Class A " ... !!!

Pete Doherty Should Be Sent With SPEED Into Iraq And Afghanistan ...
If He Didn't Fight They'd Be Alright Because His Squadron Would Just Get ... " HIGH " ... !!!

They'd Do A BETTER Job Than The U.N. Lot ...
It's A CRAZY Plot But Doch' Would ROCK ... !!!

DON'T Get Me WRONG He's Got PROBLEMS ... !!!

He's Faced The Courts But Of Course GOT OFF ... !?!
Because THEY Say ... "He needs re-hab and should write more songs !"

But The M.O.D. What's Their EXCUSE ... !?!
For The Masses Paying Tax For Soldiers REHAB ... ?!?

Don't Know About You ...
But I Take ISSUE With Paying For THAT ...
And The War In Iraq ... !!!!!
Now This Is Why I'm A Little Bit MAD ...

Another Report In The News Today Has Relayed That Officials Say ...

... "It's time for a change, let's reduce sentences for A.B.H. !" ...

Specifically Those of Lesser Displays ...

COMMUNITY SENTENCES And NO MORE Days of Being Sent To Jail ...

For ... ACTUAL BODILY HARM ... !?!

Even MAGISTRATES ... !!!
Are DEAD AGAINST Reducing PUNISHMENT For ..... "ABH" ..... !!!!!

And I Have To AGREE If Someone Tried ATTACKING ME ...
And Was Then SET FREE In The COMMUNITY I Have To Say I'd Feel AGGRIEVED ... !!!!!

What Kind of PENALTY Is CLEANING THE STREETS ... !!!!!
Government Policies Are ... CLEARLY CRAZY ... !!!!!

A.B.H. Is A Form of ASSAULT Need I Say ANYMORE ... !!!!

If They CAN'T Control BRAWLS Who's REALLY AT FAULT ... !!?!!

Instead of Waging Wars On FOREIGN Shores ...
They Should Try ENFORCING Laws On BRITISH STREETS ... !!!!!
NOT Putting Criminals In COMMUNITIES ... !!!!!!

I HOPE It's NOT TOO LATE ...
That's ALL I Have To Say ...

EXCEPT These Last Four Words ...

" LET'S GET THINGS STRAIGHT !!! " .....
