'Where We're At' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 10/3/2016

Ya Know The Human Race...
Seems To Move These Days In Ways That DISPLAY...
A LACK of Respect For Coming CORRECT... ?!?
From Corporate Sects To The Streets Where Feds'...
KEEP KILLING Men To STOP Violence... ?!?

Did You CATCH THAT Rhyme... ?
... Let Me Say It AGAIN... !!!

KEEP KILLING Men To STOP VIOLENCE... ?!?!?

Does THAT Make Sense... ???
... NOT To My Mind...

But It's Where We're At... !!!
And That's A FACT... !!!

... NONSENSICAL Acts...
Now... GOVERNMENT Backed... !!!

Did I Say... " NOW "... ?

Cos' It Seems To Me Throughout HISTORY...
That This Is HOW Things Have Gone Down... !!!

Or... Have They... ?!?!?
Well It's CLEARLY The Way Things Are TODAY.... !!!
From London STORES To Bajan' Shores...
What's The SCORE When It Comes To Laws... ???
Well Cards Get DRAWN That Seem To ENFORCE...

That... ANYTHING Goes... !!?!!
When It Comes To GETTING Dough... !!!
YES I Mean CASH Because In A FLASH...
Corporates DASH And QUICKLY STASH... !!!

Money Like... " BUGSY "..........

MALONE... HELL NO... !!!!

The Way They ROLL's MORE Like That Show...
With Dick DASTARDLY And MUTLEY In Tow... !?!

WITHOUT The... JOKES...
When Folks Are Left BROKE...
In Ways E.T. Will NEVER KNOW... !!!!!

When BILLS Make Homes...
... NO PLACE To GO... !!!!!

Telephone Companies...
DISCONNECTING... Dialling Tones... !!!!!!

So You CAN'T Pay Them By USING Your Phone... ?!?
Customs GRUNTS Pulling IGNORANT Stunts... !!!!!
Because They're SELECTED By Heads Now INFECTED...
With Societies' VIRUS That's WORSE Than CYRUS... !!!!!!
CONNING HEIRS... Whose Names HOLD Shares... !!!
In Firms PREPARED To INFLATE And TAKE...
EVERY Last Piece of Your Birthday Cake... !!!!!

NOTHING Left But Crumbs And Dregs And ANGRY Heads... !!!

When All They Get...
Are Bills By Text And TECH-Type Trends That Leave Heads VEXED... !!!

Well I Take The View That It's REALLY NOT Cool...
For Technological Tools To RULE HOW We Move... !!!
Is The Human Touch... NOT GOOD Enough... ??!??

..... Hmm It Must Be ME..... !!!

To Nowadays FEEL That People NEED...
To... GET BACK To A World...
Where WE... Do NOT Abuse The TECH We USE...
In Order To FUEL THESE Corporate Crews...
Who Employ FOOLS To Do THEIR DO...
And USE Technology As Some EXCUSE...
To Leave Heads SCREWED WITHOUT The... SEX... !?!?!
But... FILLED With DEBT... !!!!!
From England To Barbados The System Does NO FAVOURS... !!!

Some Bajan' Ways Are WORSE Than LAME... !!?!!
And Make Laid Back Resemble BAD And That's A FACT... !!!!!!!!!!!!
But Have The CHEEK To Be RUDE To Peeps'...
Who SEE Their Schemes IGNORANCE And GREED...
They'll Probably TRY To THREATEN Me....
Because I Speak FREELY... While They It Seems...
Are STILL Quite Happy To Be Paying RESPECT To.... " HER MAJESTY ".... ?!?

Now...... GLOBALLY.....
TOO MANY Sheep Are Joining TEAMS...
Who NEED To Be CHECKED WITHOUT The CASH... !!!!!!

...... The World's Gone MAD ...... !!!?!!!

Well In ACTUAL Fact I Think The World Is Doing FINE... !!!
But PEOPLE Now I MOSTLY Find Have LOST Their........... Minds...... !!!!!

And RUN Around Like Circus CLOWNS... !!!
I Think It's SAD That Human Kind...
In Todays' Times Can Be DEFINED...
As Moving FORWARD Whilst FALLING... BACK... !!!

And THAT THIS In TRUTH Is...

....... " Where We're At " .......
