"Reaction" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 8/7/2005

Location

United Kingdom

After the 7/7 bombing ...
This is part of a Trilogy of poems to remind people about
where some of their, " Anti-Islam Rhetoric ", started from ....

(BTW ... I am NOT, Pro-Islam)

What Happened Yesterday ...
Left Many Folks ... AMAZED ... !!!!!

To See The London Underground ...
BLOWN UP And Ablaze ... !!!

Of Course We've Heard REACTIONS ...
From The Usual Political Factions ...

But ...
While Things Were COLLAPSING ... !!!

Where Were They ...
" G8 " ... Protracting ... ?!?

It's ... NEVER Them ... ?!?
That Feel The STING ...
But People Who ...
WON'T Be The Same AGAIN ... !!!!!

SOME Have Died ...
While Some Survived ...

But They May Wish ...
They'd ... Lost Their Life ... ?

What We ... "HEAR" ...
Is ... " So Contrived " ...

It's AL QAEDA ...
ALL THE TIME ... !!!!!!!!!!

Let's Not Keep ...
THE TRUTH ... " dIsGuisED " ...
They Have Got ... Western Allies ... !!!

So Where's The Proof ... ???
To Dispel ... " LIES " ...
That Will Be Fed ...
To ... "CONTROLLED Minds" ...

I Haven't Got A Clue ... ?
Try ... MI5 ... !!!

Aren't They The Ones ... ???
Who PROTECT LIVES ... !?!

They Seemed To Be ... " LOST " ... !?!?!
Did They Need A Guide ... ???

It's Cars They Drive ...
While Some Have DIED ... !!!

On GUESS WHAT YES ... !!?!!
A ... Double Decker Ride ... !!!

But It's Okay ... !!!
Is What They Say ...

"Security measures are now in place !"

Okay That's Great ... !!!
But The Fact Is THIS ...

IT'S A LITTLE TOO LATE ... !!!

When MANY NOW ...
Have Met Their Fate ... !!!

Isn't PREVENTION ...
Better Than .... " Cure " ... ?!?

You'd Better Ask Bob ... ?
Or Try Midge Ure ... !!!!

LIVE AID Worked ... !!!
It Got A REACTION ....

Yeah ... George Bush AIN'T ...
Removing SANCTIONS ... !!!

Fair Trade Is A Better Way ...
Than Giving Pop Stars ...

The Political Stage ...

They Just Want ...
Some More AIRPLAY ... !!!

Those Who Believe ...
What The Media Say ...
Are VEXING ME ... !!! ...
In Different Ways ... !!!!!

People I Work With ...
Make Me Laugh ...

"Virgil, this thing ain't a joke !
Someone in here may have had their heart broke !"

That May Be True ... ?
But Here's MY VIEW ...

People Laugh ...
Every God Damn Day ... !!!
While MANY DIE ...
In DIFFERENT Ways ...

NOT NATURALLY ... !!!
They're CASUALTIES ...
of Things We All See ...
In ... " Societies " ...

Come On Folks ... !!!
You Must Agree ... ?!?

So Don't You Point ...
Fingers At Me ... !!!

Cos' You Like Me ...
Are ALL GUILTY ...
of Making Jokes ...
While Others ... BLEED ... !!!

Look At Those ...
Who Had To Sleep ...
In London Hotels ...

Beds DIDN'T COME CHEAP ... !!!!!!
These Are The Acts ...
of The GREEDY BREED ... !!!

I'll Laugh OUT LOUD ...
Cos' That AIN'T ME ... !!!!!!!

People Have DIED ...

Yeah It's A TRAGEDY ... !!!

But How Many Care ... ???
About Those In NEED ... !!!

In Places Here ...
In This Country ...
And Those Who SUFFER ...
..... " Overseas " .... ?!?!?

How Many Can Say ... ?

" They think of them ! "

Those Living A Life ...
WITHOUT ... " Freedom " ...

It's TRUTH I Talk ...
While You Build Forts ...
To Save Yourself ...
From Conscious Thoughts ...

And Then Want To Act ...
Like ... " You're A GOOD SPORT " ... ?!?

And Think About Those ...
With LESS NOT More ... ???

Check YOURSELF ...
In The Baggage Hall ... !!!!!

This FOR SURE ...
I DO IMPLORE ... !!!!!

I DON'T Know Everything ... !!!
I DON'T Claim To ... !!!

But Nowadays ...
My Views Are Shrewd ...

I'm Searching For TRUTH ... !!!
NOT .... " Fraudulent News " .... !!!

" It's a power surge ! "

REMEMBER Those Words ... ???

Cos' Now WE KNOW ...
That Message Was BlUrReD ... !!!

YES With These Words ...
You Must CONCUR ... !!!

So These Last Words ...
Go To ... " Fake Factions " ...

EVERY Action

Provokes A ...

... " Reaction " ...
