"So What's Yours" ... ??? ... A Poem written by Big Virge 19/12/2008

These Days It Seems Weapons Are Seen ...
NOT JUST On Screens But Now In Streets ...

Murders Here ... Murders There ... !!!

These Days It's CLEAR They FILL Nightmares ... !!!!!

NIGHTMARISH Dreams For Those Now Left ...
With Memories ... of Friends Now Dead ... !!!

Or A Relative For Which There's NO FIX ...
While The Media Sings The ... " Same ol' thing " ...

... "We need more police with weaponry,
... to stem the tide of violent crime !"

While Governments Feed DIFFERENT Stories ... !!!

... "Violent crime is down, across our towns !"

Maybe Where THEY ARE With Their SIX Car Garage ...
And Entourage ... of Security Guards ... !!!!!

No Hoodies Round Them or TERRORIST Threats ...
Yet Our Youth Are Investing In Possessing More Weapons ... !?!

A New Age Trend That NEEDS TO LESSEN ... !!!!!
As Time Transcends There Are Many Who Threaten To Use A Weapon ....
From Violent Youth To These Terrorist Crews ...

But Is That TRUE ... Who's Fooling WHO ... ???
The U.S's New Weapon ISN'T Seen As A Threat .... ???

Well Not just ... " YET " ...............................

Could It Be That Obama Is Worse Than ... " Osama " ... ?!?

Questions Like THAT May Get Me Attacked ... ?!?
By BOTH .... White And Black ...
But THINK BEFORE You FIRE ... !!!
A President Is HIRED And RARELY Ever FIRED ... !!!

And MOST of Them Are Just Figureheads ...
Who Tend To Be ... " BIG LIARS " ... !!!

... "But Barack's Black !"

Is What's Being Said By His Supporters ... YES ... !!!

BOTH White And Black ...
But Which Way Will They Sway If Things DON'T Change ... ?

I Bet Blacks Start Saying ...

... "Well he is mixed race..."

While The ... " Liberal Whites " ...
Will Probably Be Playing The CLASSIC Old Lines ... !!!

... "He's messed things up, he ain't one of us !"

Of Course Blacks Will CUSS And RUN Their GUMS ... !!!!!

... "Why you saying this stuff !"

Because In MY VIEW It's The God Damned Truth ... !!!!
Because This Brother's Got Colour That Makes Him ... " Cool " ... ?!?

That's A Weapon They've USED To KEEP You ... FOOLED ... !!!

So DON'T Get It CONFUSED ... !!!

Don't It Seem A Bit STRANGE That After Uncle George ...
Who CLEARLY Waged War On Immigrant Hoards ...

That A Man Called ... " Osama " ... !!!!!!

.... "Excuse me OBAMA's !" ....

Gonna ... " SAVE THE DAY " ... !!!

Clearly NOT ... !!!
For The Folks Down With ... B.O. ... !?!?!

Wait A Minute Man WHOA ... !!!!!!

I Can Smell Something FUNNY And I KNOW It AIN'T ME ... !!!!!
B.O. .... SHOULDN'T BE In The White House Seat ... !!!!!
But I Guess That Was Left By Good Ol' Georgie B' ... !!!!!
Who's Been In The News For Avoiding SHOES ... ?!?
Now What Kind of Weapon Are They To USE ... ?!?!?
I Know Iraqi Dudes Gotta Have ... MORE VENOM ... !!!

It's ... ALWAYS The Way ...
How You Bringing A Knife To A F'ing GUNFIGHT ... !?!

.... "Son, you shouldn't play games, when it comes to your life !"

That's Why My Weapon Is Used To STRENGTHEN ... !!!
NOT Leave Me WEAK Like Those Who Bleed ... !!!

My Weapon's MY MIND And Well Thought Out Rhymes ...
That Require NO SWORDS Or Physical Wars ... !!!!!!!!!

Of Course I Recognise ....
That Words CAN'T STOP Weaponry That's STRONG ... !!!!!

But I'd Rather DIE Than Start Taking Lives Because I Couldn't Find ...
A BETTER Way To End ... PETTY Arguments ...
Than Using A Weapon To PROVE My STRENGTH ... !!!!!

When ALL It's Gonna Do Is Lead To DEATH ...

So Do The Government LIE About Gun And Knife Crime ... ???
I'll Let You Decide But REMEMBER THESE LINES ... !!!

Things On ... PRIME TIME ...
Are What THEY CHOOSE And Aren't Always TRUE ... !!!!!

Think About Your Life And Where You Reside ...
Does YOUR Neighbourhood Get The Coverage It Should ... ?

Does The News NEGLECT ... ?
The Things You Wanna See On YOUR T.V. ... ???

You SEE My Weapons Are WORDS And Poetic Verse ....
Now I RARELY Curse But Agree With ... Em' ....

When You Face PROBLEMS Sometimes You NEED TO ... !!!!!

I'd Prefer That Move Than A Move To ... " SHOOT " ... !!!!!!

I CAN'T End This Piece Without ONE MORE THEME ...

The BIGGEST Weapon In Use Is CLEARLY ... " YOU " ... !!!!!

The Things You CHOOSE And Things You DO ...
And Things You FEAR This Move Is ... CLEAR ... !!!

The Media FUELS A ... "Limited View" ...

OPEN Your Mind And RECOGNISE ....
That What You're FED Is AGENDA Led ... !!!

You REALLY CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING That You READ ...
Or The Things That You SEE ... On Your TV Screens ... !!!!!

There Are MANY FALLACIES And FALSE Prophecies ...
Aimed Towards Your Ears To FUEL YOUR FEARS ... !!!!!

My Weapon Fa' Sure SUPPORTS THIS CAUSE ... !!!

Conscious Thoughts ...
BEFORE Acts of War That Make Blood Pour ... !!!

So My Question For You All .....

............ is ...........

" What Is YOURS ? " ....
