'Pools' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 1/9/2017

There CLEARLY Are... " TWO Pools " ... !!!
The One Where Artists FUEL Creations That Are COOL... !!!
And The ENTERTAINMENT School Where Art Now Gets ABUSED... !!!!
These Days THESE... " Entertainers "...
Are Paid Quite Large Retainers For Acts That Are Quite SHAMELESS... !?!
They REJECT What Is Conscious For Entertainment NONSENSE... !!!!!
Then Wonder WHY We Live in A World Now FILLED With Societal PROBLEMS... ?!?
No Brainers Now Get FAMOUS By Selling Out For PAPER ... !?!
That SHOWS Them To Be WHORES... !!!
Who Get BIG Cash Rewards And INDUSTRY AWARDS ...
For Acts That GAIN APPLAUSE For Content That ASSURES... !!!
REAL Artists REMAIN... " poor "... !!!
Because What THEY PRESENT.... !!!!!!
Is WEAK And Has A Patent On Exposing NO TALENT... !!!
While Those Who Are REAL ARTISTS Are Pushed Into A Market....
That's FILLED With Moving Targets... Targets That Move QUICK... !!!!!
So RARELY Do They HIT The Bullseye Where The PRIZE...
Is Getting RECOGNISED For Artistry That FLIES.... !!!!!
ABOVE These Entertainers Whose Work Can Be SALACIOUS... !!!!!!
In Fact It's CRASS And FILLED With CRACKS... !!!
From Front to Back So SHOWS Its ASS...
To Get A PASS To Join The Acts Who Make A PACT...
To RUN From FACTS And GROOVY Tracks...... !?!?!
So... DUMB down art Before They Start...
To Create A Path For Art That's SMART And Makes A MARK...
Because It CHARTS Creative HEART...
That Does MORE Than Impart A SHAM.... !!!!!
That ENTERTAINS Because It's Lame...
The Fame Game SHAMES Creative Strains And Then MAINTAINS...
These... SHAMELESS Names Who ENTERTAIN In SHAMELESS Ways... !!!!!
Just To Get PAID For Art That STINKS Like LITTER...... !!!!!!
Now It May Seem That I'm BITTER... ?!?
Well Maybe Just a little Because They Have Belittled...
Art For STUFF That's Brittle Like Stuart YES It's LITTLE... !!!!!!
And FILLED With MICE Who CLOWN Around...
Because of RATS Who Hold Them down... !!!
Well Hold Them UP As If They've WON... ?!?
A Place ABOVE The Shining Sun... !???!
DOLLAR McGregors' And YES Mayweathers'...
ENTERTAIN Alright When It Comes To Mics'...
And Creating HYPE For Money Fights...
That Have Less Punch Than A Hapless Drunk... !!!!!
But It's NOT Their Fault That The Masses FALL...
For ALL Their TRICKS And POLITICS... !!!
It's A Game Where PAY Now DEFINES... " FAME "...
Even If Your Game ENDS Like Usain's... !!!
PULLED UP And BEATEN Because It's weakened... !!!
UNLIKE The SMARTEST Creative ARTIST...
Whose Art Time Travels Like A TARDIS... !!!!!!!!
TIMELESS Like A Suit From SAVILE.......................
ROW... But NO NOT That WICKED PAEDOPHILE Bloke...... !!!!!!
And ON That Quote I'll End These Notes...
That Speak On How They DIFFER...
ENTERTAINERS Who Are SNIFFERS...
Dogs Who TROT To Their Masters Song... !!!!
And ARTISTS Who In TRUTH... " Belong "...
In Public VIEW But DON'T Get Through...
Because Their Art Gives PROOF....
That ART And ENTERTAINMENT...
Come From Two DIFFERENT....

…............. " POOLS " ..............
