"Those Years" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 13/5/2013

These Days It's CLEAR I've Now Passed ... " Those Years " ... !!!

Where RUNNING My Mouth ...
To PROVE WITHOUT Doubt ...
That My Thoughts Are SOUND ...
Is NO LONGER A Need That Lives Within Me ... !!!

AGREE To DISAGREE Is Now The Theme ...
With Which I ROLL When The Youth Get BOLD ...

And Wanna TELL ME How Things Now Go ...
....... I KNOW What I KNOW ....... !!!

As I'm SURE They Do ...
But There's Something In The Youth That's NOW ON SHOW ...

A DISRESPECT For FACTS That Come From OLDER Mans' ...
YUP ... Mans' Like Me Who Deal In FACTUAL SPEECH ... !!!

NOT Conspiracies That Are Now On TV's ... !!!!
I CONSPIRE To REVEAL The Things Youngsters NOW SEE ...
That Simply ARE NOT REAL And ARE FILLED With FALLACIES ... !!!

Like DODGY Referees And Stars Whose SHINE Concedes .......
To Personal DEFEATS That Leads Me To Believe ...
DEEP DOWN That They Are WEAK ... !!!!!!

SO MANY New Age CLOWNS ... !!!
Who've Signed These CRAZY DEALS ... !!!!!

Marketing ... Promotion ...
So YES Living ... " The DREAM " ... !!!

Causing A COMMOTION Because The Dream ... "Conceals" ...
A Lack of TRUE DEVOTION To What Most Want To See ... !!!

HIGH Quality ... NOT Sporting CHEATS ... !!!!!
Or MIMING Teens Whose Sheen Is CLEAN ...
Until We See Them ... BROKEN Down ... !!!!!

WITHOUT Being Drowned By The HYPE That SURROUNDS ...

... "They're the greatest thing to come along,
... since Jesus Christ, The son of GOD !"

... "The son of who, he's just a fool !
... Check Bieber son, he is that dude !"

.... "Okay, can I ask, how old are you ?"

... "I'm Twenty Two, what does that prove ?"

.... "It proves that you have a limited view !
.... Don't get it confused, I have one too,
.... but mine has seen, a bit more, nah' mean !
.... Respect for old heads, now seems to be dead, and I ain't that old !"

... "Who told you so, you're grey and choose to not make moves,
... your thinking's off, I think your mind's gone soft !"

.... "You're probably right, what could I have learnt
.... from seeing the times, when you had to earn,
.... your time to shine, and rep' that hype !"

YEAH ... " Rep' That Hype ! " ...

NOT Just Get Signed And Then SUDDENLY BE ...

" THE MAN " ... Like MIKE Or Like ... " ALI " ...

.... " THE GREATEST of ALL TIMES ! " ....

OPINIONS In The Young I DO WELCOME ...
But ONLY When ... RESPECT ...
Is What Young Heads Then COME WITH Next ... !!!

The Sad Thing Is ...
It's NOT JUST Kids NOW FLIPPING The Script ...

A LOT of OLDER Heads Now Be Running Talk That's FOUL ... !!!
Since When Did EVERYBODY Have Knowledge That Was GODLY ... !?!?!
These Days MOST Peoples' Arguments Are CLEARLY Rather SHODDY .... !!!!!

To Me These Days It's CLEAR These Whipper Snappers FEAR ...
Arguments of Reason That PROVE Their Thoughts AREN'T Seasoned ... !!!

So When They're Brought ... It's TREASON .... !!!!!!
And Then COME OUT Their DEMONS ... !!!

DEFIANCE PRIDE And Then DENIAL ...
Passive AGGRESSION They KEEP Defending ...
UNTIL ... Common Sense Lessons ...
Leave Their Demons ... SUITABLY Weakened ... !!!

We've ALL Been There When Youth ... "ENSNARES" ...
Our Ability To HEAR The Things Most of Us FEAR ... !!!!!!!!!!

Because When Most Are YOUNG ...
It's CLEAR That WISDOM Comes ...
