"What Do You Stand For ?" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 28/04/2005

What's With People These Days ?

Societal Decay ....
Is On Constant Display ... !!!

So What Do You Stand For ... ?
At The End of The Day ... ?!?

Do You Stand For ABUSE ...
From Ignorant Youth ... ?!?

Or .....

Do You ... Fall For LIES ...
From .... Political Guys .... ?!?

Do You FALL Like A Fool ... ?!?

Or ....

Take A Stand Like The Wise ...
Cos' The Wise Realise ...
What's In A ... " Fake Guise " ...

When You OPEN Your Eyes ...
Do Your Eyes ... Recognise ... ?
A Person Who ... "hides" ...
Like ... " Bonnie and Clyde " ...

Are You Happy To Work ... ?
While Others Just Shirk ...

Do You Thrive Off Emotion ... ?
Kind of Like ... " James T Kirk " ... !!?!!

Or ....

Take Stock Like Spock ...
Using Logic To Rock ...
Those Standing for Nothing ...

Who Still Want To Knock ...
Your Thoughts and Ideals
Kind of Like ... " Meals On Wheels " ...

While Those That They Work For ...
Consistently .... " STEAL " .... !!!!!

Don't You Feel Nowadays ...
Like You Get A ... RAW DEAL ... !?!

While Those Who Have CASH ...
Keep Themselves ... "Well Concealed" ...

Isn't This How You Feel ... ???

Well Maybe You Don't ...
But Let Me Say This ....

This IS ... HOW I FEEL ... !!!!!
and That's On The REAL ... !!!!!

This Was Sent To Me ...

"Perception's More Important Than Reality ???"

Well That Train of Thought ...
Just DOESN'T Suit Me ... !!!
Cos' REALITY IS ...
The Place Where I Be ... !!!

While Many It Seems ...
Now Embrace FALLACY ... !!?!!

So What Will It Take ...
For People To See ... ?

The Death of Mankind ... !!!
And .... Humanity .... !?!

Here Are Some Lyrics ...
For You To Digest ...

"Some say man
ain't truly happy
until man truly dies"

So Why Do Some Try ...
To Be The Fall Guy ... ?!?

They May As Well Do It ...
YES ... Take Their Own Life ... !!!!!

That ... Just ISN'T Right ... !!!

Like ... Living To Fight ...
When What You Fight For ...
Is To TAKE SOMEONES' LIFE ... !!!!!

HELL YES In My Life ...
I've Thought of ... SUICIDE ... !!!

But Lucky For Me ...
I Found ... SANITY ... !!!!!

But This Is The Truth ... !!!

My Spirit and Mind ...
Are Still Running Free .........
Because I'm Now Writing ...
This ... TRUE Poetry ...

To Vent My Frustrations ...
On How People Be ...

People Who THINK ...
They KNOW REALITY .... !!!!!

But These Are NOT PEOPLE ...
With Whom I Share Tea .... !!!!!!!

These People Are TRULY ...
The WORST Kind of Freaks ... !!!!!!

They Travel Like ... "Sheep" ...
And DEFINE The Word WEAK ... !!!

And Simply Live Life ...
Like Tongue Fits With Cheek ...

Their Future Is Bleak ...

So What Do You Seek ... ?
A ... Nine To Five Job ...
For Your Working Week ... ?

Try ... STANDING For Something ...
BEFORE ... Falling For Anything ... !!!!!

These Are Some Words ...
That Have ... Depth of Meaning ...

I've Now Got To Stop ...
I Can't Say Anymore ...

But Ask You This Question ...
