Let's Make This ...

...... " Official " ...... !!!

Most Poets These Days ...
Have Become ... " Superficial " ...

They Now ... " Love Themselves " ... ?!?

Their Show's Got ...
... FOUL SMELLS ... !!!!!

Some Actually Think ...
Their Actions Give Help ... ?!?

Well This Is How Things ...
... REALLY ARE ... !!!!!

The Scene's Full of TARTS ... !!!!!
Who Pick and Choose Who Get In View ...
And THIS Is Just The ... Very Start ... !!!!!

Their Movements Are Like SHARKS ...
But Bite With ... " little bark " ... !?!

While Meantime Those With Talent ...
Are Pushed Into ... "The Dark" ...

Let's Get This CLEAR ... !!!
I DO Mean ... ME ... !!!

Cos' Words I Write Don't EVER Veer ...
Into Their Phoney ... FAKE VENEER ... !!!!!!

Probably Cos' ...
I Steer .......... WELL CLEAR ..........
of ... Sucking Things ...
That Some Men LICK ... !!!

Cos' Acts Like That ...
To Me ..... Are SICK ..... !!!!!!!

Ladies Play ...
The Same Game Too ... !!!

How Many of You ... ?
Would ... DO The DO ... !!!
To Get Into This School of FOOLS ... !!!!!

Just To Read On The BBC ...
Broadcasting Words ...
That Show You're ... "weak" ... !!!!!

These Are The Poets ...
of Whom I Speak ...

Black or White ...
They Act The Same ...

They Take This Art ...
For An Infantile Game ...

Their LUST For FAME ...
Just Shows How Vain ...
The Vessels Are ...
That FEED Their Brain ... !!!

I Enjoyed That Verse ... !!!
Let Me Say It Again ... !!!

Their LUST For FAME ...
Just Shows How Vain ...
The Vessels Are ...
That FEED Their Brain ... !!!

They Like To Criticise ...
But Can't Take Criticism ... ?!?

Their Words Are Contrived ....
And AVOID .... REALISM ..... !!!

If I Had My Way ...
They'd Be Locked In .... "Prison" .... !!!

And Then INJECTED ....
With The WORST Kind of Venom ... !!!!!

Some Poets I've Seen ....
Have Shined With A SHEEN ... !!!

But These AREN'T The Ones ...
On The Poetry Scene ... !!!!!

By This I Mean ...
The SLAM POETRY Scene ...

Where Restrictions Keep ...
Good Poets ... "unseen" ...
Who REALLY Would Shine ...
WITHOUT ... Mr. Sheen .... !!!

This ... " EGO Thing " ...
Is ... OUT OF CONTROL ... !!!!!

Take Note of My Words ...
Before Your Heads Roll ...

Compere or Poet ...
You May Pay A Toll ...
For Ignorance Bred ...
From Those With ...

... NO SOUL ... !!!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T BIG UP Your Friends ... !!!
They May Be Your End ... !!!

Try ... BIGGING' UP People ...
Whose Wordplay Transcends ...
People Who'll Make People ...
LIKE Your Events ... !!!!!

NOT IGNORANT Fools ...
With ... ANGER To Vent ...
Who Then Want To Bring ...
Your Event To An End.

They're PIGS With NO Kermit ...
Whose Wordplay Is TURGID ... !!!!!

The Answer Is Simple ...
DENY THEM A Permit ... !!!!!

DON'T Let These FOOLS In ...
Have People MORE ... " Learned " ...

LEARNED In Things ...
Like ..... " Humility " .....

LEARNED In Matters ....
Like ..... " REALITY " ..... !!!!!

THESE Are The People ...
With REAL POETRY ... !!!

These Days I Feel .............. " Lost .........
In A Society Where Poets Use Poems ...
For ..... " FRIVOLITY " ..... ?!?!?

Just Look Around You ... !!!
DON'T They See What You SEE ... ?!?

DON'T They Live In A World ... ?
Where They SEE ... " Poverty "... ?

DON'T They Live In The World ... ?
With Youth Now ... ANGRY ... ?

DON'T They Live In The World ... ?
Where We See So Much GREED ... ?

It Would Appear ... NOT ... ?!?

Cos' These Aren't The Subjects In Their Poetry ... !!!

... " OH YES IT IS ! " ...

IS What They Will ... " Say " ...
MAN ... Give Me A BREAK ... !!!

STOP Being SO FAKE ... !!!

They HATE To See Me ... !!!
And Their Boots Start To QUAKE ...
Their FEAR Seems To Be ...

Cos' My Poetry's GREAT ... !!!!!
While Theirs I'm Afraid ...
Is Just ... " ARTIFICIAL " ...

My Mind Is ... " Judicial " ...

So Let's Make This ... OFFICIAL ... !!!

Most Poets These Days ...
..... Have Become .....

... " Superficial " ...
