"Play Ball" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 5/7/2007

Location

United Kingdom

It's Wimbledon Time And English Summertime ...
So It Ain't A Surprise We Ain't Seeing Sunshine ... !!!!!

So Of Course The BBC Are Showing More REPEATS ...
of Days When There Was Heat On The Courts And In The Streets ... !!!

Cos' On My TV Screen's ... John Mac And Borg Elites ...
The Boogas' Bjorn Used To Wear Upon His Swedish Feet ...... !!!!!

But Mac's The Man Whose Made My Mind ...
Recline Rewind And Take Some Time ...
To Look At How ... I REALLY AM ... !!!!!

In Him I See Much of Myself ...
A Man Whose Beliefs Run DEEP Like Wells ...

DEEPER Than Submissive Types ... !!!!!
Who Fall in Line With Those Confined ...
By Old School TIES And ... Monetary Wealth ...

Who Make Me Feel Like ...

.... "What the hell, I'm not playing ball til' you make the right call !"

A CHALLENGER of ... Establishment Ways .... !!!

No Matter WHAT ... People Might Say ... !!!!!!

... "Your rebellious mind, is out of line !
... Be careful son, otherwise, Otherwise !"

.... "Yeah, otherwise what, you'll take my slot ?
.... Do what you like, you don't own my mind !"

See That's The Way I'm Living My Life ...
No Shame In My Game Or The Words I Write ... !!!!!

See There Are Some Pitfalls To Just Playing Ball ... !!!

As There Are To Standing TALL If You DON'T Have Much Support ... !!!
John Mac' Saw That Fa SURE When He Was On Court ... !!!

Cos' He Was SLAMMED And Called A BRAT ... !!!!!
By Media Clans Who Hunt In PACKS ... !!!!!

And NOT Just THEM But Other Sects ...
Who CLEARLY Felt He'd Cause PROBLEMS ...
Because His Ways Inspired Change ... !!!

ALI BEFORE Him ... DID ALL These Things ... !!!!!

So Playing Ball ... You Make The Call ... ?!?

.... " THE BALL IS IN !!! "

I ... INSIST ... So Let Me LIVE And NOT Exist ...
Like Those Who SEEK RESTRICTIVE Cliques ... !!!!!

That's How I Live ... !!!
NOT Bending Over SUCKING Things ... !!!!!

I'm A Soldier ... Who RESISTS .... !!!!!
But Playing Ball For ... " Booty Calls " ...

Well Here's THE DEAL And YES I'm For REAL ... !!!!!

Most Girls Play Games To Get Their Way ... !!!
And NOW Play Men By Using ... Texts ... !?!
Well Here's Some Words To Get Them VEX ... !!!

When It Comes To Me Girls ...
Come S P R E A D Your Legs And YES GET LAID ... !!!!!

My Game Comes ... STRAIGHT ... !!!!!
NO Rain Delays And NO HEADACHES ... !!!!!!

If You DON'T Like The Rules Trust Me It's COOL ... !!!
Just Do Your Do And Walk AWAY See I'm NO FOOL ...
And Have Been WELL SCHOOLED ... !!!
In How Playing Ball Can Bring DOWNFALLS ... !!!!!
See It's NOT Easy To Walk The Walk And NOT Play Ball ... !!!

Ask MAC' or ... ALI ...
They Took ABUSE From YES MEN Crews ...
Who Then CHANGED Tune When DOMINANCE Bloomed ... !!?!!

See Playing Ball Will Work For Those ...
Whose Balls Are SMALL And Minds Are CLOSED ...

They Are THE WEAK Who FOLLOW SHEEP ... !!!!!!!!
And Hide Behind SHEETS ... Know What I Mean ... ?!!!!!?

Historically ... Life Changing FEATS Are NOT Achieved ...
By Those Who Speak Like ... " Little Bo' Peeps " ... !!!!!

They Tend To Be A ... UNIQUE Breed ... !!!
Whose Actions STIR Just Like Their Words ... !!!

They Play Ball YES On THEIR OWN TERMS ... !!!!!

In Times of STRESS When OTHERS TURN Their Backs On Them ...
I Guess That's When They Know Their Friends ... !!!
And Those Whose CLAIMS Are ALL ... " PRETENCE " .... !!!!!

The Game's The SAME From Beginning To End ...
Most Toe The Line To Get Their Slice ...
of Pie Designed To ... CONTROL Lives ... !!!!!!

... "Do what I say, and you'll get paid,
... but cross my path, and you'll feel my wrath,
... when things turn dark, and your card's been marked !"

I Guess That's What Makes Them AFRAID ... ?!?
of Creating Waves That STIR Debate ...
Because They FEAR NOT BEING Cheered ... !!!!!

But Those Who LEAD Care Less It Seems .... ???
of How They're Seen In ..... " History " .....

We'll Have To See Whether I ... " Play Ball " ... ?

To Get The Call To Speak FREELY About Things I SEE ...
For Now I'd Say That's ... UNLIKELY ... !!!!

Cos Like The Replays On The BBC ...
My Policy's To ... ROCK The Boat ... !!!
Like McEnroe And Muhammad Ali ... !!!

YES A Man Who Speaks What He BELIEVES ... !!!!!
REGARDLESS of ... " CONTROVERSY " ... !!!

So Like My Height I'm Standing TALL ... !!!!!
Exercising MY RIGHT To ... NOT ...

................. " Play Ball " ...................
