'Puppets' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 3/12/2014

Ya Know I Think It’s Fair To Say...
That PUPPETS Reign The World TODAY... !!!
From Heads of State To Those Making CLAIMS...
That They COMMAND The Stage...
With WORDPLAY ARRAYS Befitting of... “ A SAGE “... !?!
When IN FACT They DISPLAY Wordplay That Indicates...
A LACK of Lyrical Gifts BEYOND What Pulls Their Strings... !!!!!!
Being FAKE To Earn Their Pay... !!!
USING Stakes That Count DRAC’ BREAKS... !!!!
Playing SAFE With Things They Say...
Cos’ They CAN’T UPSET Who WRITES Their Cheques... !!!
MASTERS Who Set ALL TYPES of TRENDS... !!!!
Like RAPPERS Sent To DUMB Down Heads... !!!
AND SPOKEN WORD Poets Whose Words EXPRESSED...
DEFINE PUPPETS... Whose Form of Text...
Whether HEARD Or READ Is Used To EXPRESS A LOT of NONSENSE... ?!!!?
SHOUTING And SCREAMING About Their … “ Leanings “...
To Be The NEXT HEAD Whose Words Have MEANING... !!!
Well I’m Glad To Say I’m ABOVE Their Ceiling... !!!!!
Sipping Darjeeling Whilst Compiling ARRAYS of FREE Wordplay... !!!
NEVER Written For Pay But Written To DISPLAY...
How FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION REFUSES Second Guessing... !!!
Because of Those OBSESSING About Making IMPRESSIONS... !!!
That Audiences LIKE... That’s NOT The Way I WRITE ... !!!!
I Write Thoughts From My Mind That Are MY TRUTH DEFINED... !!!
NOT FOR APPLAUSE And SMILES Or BIG TIME Dollar Signs... !!!
Cos That To Me DEFINES A Mind That’s Inclined...
To Write WEAK Rhymes Built To WEAKEN Minds... !!!
Which Like Prince Said Are Just... Signs of The Times... !!!
Toeing Lines To Get Some SHINE... !!!!!
I Guess That’s Why I’m NOT Recognised... ?!?
Cos’ I’m NOT INCLINED To Join... PUPPET Lines... !!!
Or THOSE With Strings That Pull And Tug At Them Like LINKS...
Who DON’T Give A... “ WHAT “... !!!
ABOUT Things They Bring When They Rap And Sing...
Puppeteers Who RING Changes That STING... !!!!!
ESPECIALLY When Problems AREN’T Stemmed... !!!
Like DUBIOUS Deaths Grand Juries DEFEND.... ?!?
YES FERGUSON Types Where Young Blacks DIE... !!!!!
And PUPPETS Start To CRY For... EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS... !!!
Well It All SOUNDS NICE UNTIL You Find...
The BADDEST of Rappers Crying Like Hatters...
MAD And SAD And FOLLOWING FADS... !!!
As If Their Lyrics STAND AGAINST The Bizness’ of Spitting SICKNESS... !!!!!!
That INSPIRES Young Minds To Live By... " CRIME "... ?!?!?
If You’re One of THOSE Guys You Should RECOGNISE... !!!
The Strings of Your MASTERS That Lead To DISASTERS... !!!!!
And STOP Your SQUAWKING..... !!!
When The ONLY ONES Walking After Streets Start WARRING...
Are THE SAME PUPPETEERS Who SHOOT Then SNEER... !!!
At Protests Made That DON’T Make The Grade...
of AFFECTING CHANGE In Those Who TIRADE...
About Black On Black Crime On CNN PRIMETIME... !?!
It’s Time For ALL THESE PUPPETS To STAND FOR MORE Than RUNNING...
GUMS To Have THAT MONEY... !!!
Cos’ YOUNG Black Deaths AREN’T FUNNY... !!!
And ARE FAR FROM... Light And Sunny... !!!
THATS RIGHT I’m NOT A Guy Whose EVER Had THAT SHINE... !!!!!!.
For My Wordplay Designs One Has To Wonder... WHY... ?!?
Well MAYBE It’s Because I Don’t Write For A PRIZE... !!!
Or Simply For APPLAUSE And STRINGS TOO TIGHT And Taut...
To STEM How My Mind ROARS When THOUGHTS Are What It Draws...
About The Way The SYSTEM Like Puppet Strings Be GRIPPING.... !!!!!
ONTO Puppets TRIPPIN' Because People Will Listen...
To NONSENSE They Relate Due To Their Chains of FAME...
THEY Talk About THE GAME That RULES The Way They Play...

Well Just Like TOSH I Say... “ I’m Here To KILL What’s Fake ! “
So Just for Those Now FRONTIN’ Like CINDERELLA Pumpkins... !!!
Who SWITCH Their Stance For..... “ SHOW “..... !!!!!!!!!!!
Then BEND OVER Like Ho’s... !!!
THESE WORDS Are For YOU PROS’... !!!
Cos' It’s Time To TELL Y’all SOMETHING... !!!
There Are Those of Us WHO KNOW...
You’re JUST ANOTHER...
