"Offence" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 21/10/2017

Now It Has Been Said By Other Poets...
That MY Poems OFFEND Some Heads... !!!
Well That’s Because I EXPRESS What I TRULY FEEL... !!!!
So Don’t Write Words For... MASS APPEAL... !!!!!
Because My Verse Sticks To THE REAL... !!!
While Others Write Rhymes To Garner SMILES From SHADY Types... !!!
Who’ll OPEN Doors For Spoken Word That’s Poor... ?!?
And Far From....................... RAW...... !!!!!
Because It’s School Has GIMMICKS And Tools...
That Some Heads Use As A... POOR EXCUSE... !!!
For Expression That Moves...
BEYOND The FOOLS Who Are NOW IN VIEW... !!!?!!!
So If I Cause OFFENCE To THEM And Their Crews...
.............. Well Okay That’s COOL .............. !!!
I’m HAPPY To Be The Type of Dude...
Who DOESN'T LET MONEY Decide The Rules of Verse I Choose... !!!
That IMPROVES What’s Heard From Spoken Word Herds Who WILL NOT Learn.... !!?!!
That Art That’s REAL ISN’T Written For Deals Or... Monetary Meals.... !!!
As I Said Before It’s What We TRULY FEEL... !!!
NOT Something That’s FORCED Or Tailored For... “ Awards “... !!!!!!!
And Applause That Conceals How Imposters... STEAL... !!!
Artistry For A Cause That OFFENDS Fa’ SURE... !!!!!
Because It’s SOFT To It's CORE Like Rock WITHOUT Chords...
Or Dub WITHOUT BASS... ALL OVER The Place... !?!?!?!
So I Understand Why My Verse Is... SIDELINED...
Because It’s NOT Sly... !!!
Like Those Who OFFEND With Their Weak Poems... !!!
When Societal Trends DEMAND That We EXPRESS... !!!!!
And Speak About MORE Than Days of Yore Or What’s Come BEFORE...
It’s Time To ENSURE That What We TALK In Our... ART-FORM...
Has A CAUSE That OFFENDS These... POINTLESS Wars...
To The Point Where They END So That Artistry SOARS... !!!!!
And OFFENDS Til' We RISE ABOVE... weak rhymes...
And Spoken Word Styles That NEED TO RETIRE... !!!!!!!!
Like... Poets For Hire Who Believe They INSPIRE...
When Their Styles Are TIRED Like TREAD On TYRES...
That’s BALD Like TOUPEE Buyers... !!!
Can’t Please ALL The People Who Choose To Move Like SHEOPLE... !!!
So... If I OFFEND Let THIS Be Said... !!!
Art Should Transcend Beyond Playing It.... “ Safe “....
Because It’s Lame To Play The Game In Submissive Ways... !!!!!
And Then Make CLAIMS That You Write Poems...
That FREELY Explain The TRUTH About Today...
ISM After Ism... Corruption And Divi - sion... !!!
And Submission To The Vision That Art Should Now Position...
Itself To Be UPLIFTING For Heads Who Choose To LISTEN... !!!
Okay That’s COOL... If It Works For YOU... !?!
Use Your Art To Conform To... Societal Norms...
But Current Trends of LIES And IGNORANCE ARE Causing PROBLEMS... !!!!!
And That’s Why I EXPRESS In Ways That May Well Cause...
