'Straight Speak' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 18/1/2021

Now This Poetic Piece...
Is One That Simply... Reveals My Belief...
That We Need More Straight Speak In Today’s Artistry... !!!
Of Course Variety’s A Part of Poetry...
As It Really Should Be In The Things That We See...
But I Really Do Think That Denial of This Is A BIG TRAVESTY... !!!
The Use of Lyrics To Express Through Straight Speak...
Cos To Deny It Just WREAKS of Not Keeping Things REAL... !!!
And Then Truth Ends Up MISSING When Some Are Descriptive...
Because They Use Clippings As Well As Fine Trimmings...
To Disguise The Realness of Thing’s That They’re Thinking...
ESPECIALLY When Words Expressed In Poems Are Those That Make Them...
RETHINK The Positions Of Their Dispositions... !!!
When Verse of REALISM Starts Pitching And Hitting...
Their Thoughts... OUT of Ball Parks... !!!
In Ways That Leave Marks Like Bites That Hit Hard...
From A Hungry Bull Shark... !!!
So Leaves Marks Just Like Cards...
That Deceive And Then THIEVE Gamblers of Their Money... !!!
Because What They Believe Are Indeed Fallacies...
That DON'T Deal In Straight Speak...
So This Piece Shares Desires...
To EXTINGUISH Liars Who Claim To Be Writers...
Whose Writing’s Inviting The Plying of LYING...
In Scripture That’s Written To Keep The Truth Hidden... !!!
Cos’ Their Verse Is RIDDEN With Levels of... Fiction...
That Now Needs DISMISSING From Being What's Given...
Within Lyricism That Now Is Commissioned For Tomorrow’s Children... !!!
From Rap That Is Driven To Veer From Straight Spitting...
To These Abstract Visions That Can Leave Opinions In Wells Left With Wishes...
That ...... DON’T Indulge TRUTH ......
They Create Hopes That Use Issues That Confuse...
When It Comes To How We Place Values On Beliefs...
Instead of Free Speech That Deals In Straight Speak... !!!
I Get That Some Art Leaves Viewers To Chart...
Their Own Way To View What It’s Trying To Do...
But Is Art About CLUES Or Reflecting What’s TRUE... ?!?
Because Fiction That’s GOOD DOESN’T Deal In Falsehoods...
It Simply EXPANDS On REALITY STRANDS... !!!
And Simply Is SEASONED To Make It MORE PLEASING...
To Those Who CAN’T Deal With... REALITY Meals... !!!
So My Point Is NOT Saying That Fiction Needs Slaying... !!!
But That Art Has A DUTY To Deal With Things TRULY... !!!
Now Most WON'T Agree Cos’ The TRUTH Is SCARY...
To Mind States NOT READY For TRUTH That WEIGHS HEAVY... !!!
But... ISN’T It Time To Use What We Write...
Through Our Creative Vibes To... NOT Deal In Lies... ?!?
Be They Those of The Mind Or Those That Comply...
With Trying To DENY The Things In Our Sight That Reflect Our REAL Lives...
Now I May Well Be WRONG But This Wordplay Belongs...
In A Place Where Debate Talks On What We Create...
And Then Put On Display In Artistic Wordplay...
That Will Be Read Today As Well As... Tomorrow... !!!
When We See So Much Sorrow And Truth That Is Hollowed...
Because We BELIEVE In Peoples' Fantasies...
That Now Spread Fallacies Like These Conspiracies Spread On Internet Feeds...
I Guess It’s Just Me Maybe Thinking TOO DEEP... ?!?
About... How Artistry Is Affecting Our Seeds And Our Societies...
I Guess Those Who Have Lives...
That Are Hunky Dory Enjoy A GOOD Story... !?!
But Stories Now BORE Me As Do... ALLEGORIES... !!!!!!!
As I Said In A World Where Truth’s Getting Burned... !!!
I’m A Writer Who YEARNS For The Truth To Get Turns...
To Be What Is HEARD And READ In The Verse That Readers Observe...
OF COURSE Truth Can HURT But NOT Quite Like DECEIT... !!!
So This Poetic Piece ISN’T Trying To PREACH Or To Try To FORCE FEED... !!!
It’s Just Saying That We Who Now Use Artistry...
To Reflect What We Feel About Things That We See...
When It Comes To Our ART And... CREATIVITY...
Sometimes Have A DUTY ESPECIALLY NOW In A World SO CRAZY...
To Now Deal In................
