"Writers' Block" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 12/4/2005

I'm Interested In This Thing... " Writers' Block "...
But Let Me Just STRESS This Thing I AIN'T Got... !!!
I'm intrigued By This View If You're In Writers Shoes...

This Writers' Block PROBLEM Could Happen To You... !!!
This May Be Because... What You Write ISN'T True... !!!
I'm NOT Having A Pop But Feel Somewhat Confused... ???
How Come Journalists DON'T Get Writers' Block TOO... !?!
Cos' They CLAIM To Write FACTS When Reporting The News...
SEE... FACTS And TRUTH Are In View EVERYDAY... !!!
REALITY Gives ME... PLENTY To Say... !!!!!
While FICTIONAL NONSENSE Is MOST POETS Way...
POOR Grammar From SLAMMERS Who Write... " Mini - Plays "...
But EVEN Some Plays Are LOCKED Well Away In Places Like... "Bootle"...
HIDDEN WELL AWAY From...... Public Perusal... !!!!!
My Poetry Style Is NEVER The USUAL...
RESISTANCE To This For CERTAIN IS FUTILE... !!!

I Guess Some Would Say That Subjects I Pick Make Some People SICK... !!!
But That's Cos' The TRUTH Makes People RUN QUICK...
To GOOD Ol' Writers Block... Well I'm READY To ROCK... !!!
NOT Like Haley But DAILY And I'm NOT Gonna Stop... !!!

The Clock TIC' TOC'... Until I'm... At The TOP...
The TOP of WHAT I Hear You Ask...
The TOP of What's REAL And Then OPEN The Flask... !!!!
Cos' Poetic NONSENSE NEEDS Tape And A Mask... !!!
The Truth Is SO VAST There's NO NEED To Ask...
A Preacher Or Teacher For... Writers' Block Class... !!!
UNLESS You're Like Them And Enjoy Multi-Tasks...
Like Finding A Farrago Slam To.... KISS ARSE.... !!!!!
For FICTIONAL Poems To Get An... " A - Pass "...
But How Would You Feel If Your Efforts Were SHUNNED... ?
Cos' Your Composition WASN'T Voted BEST ONE...
That Style's Being Done By Almost... EVERYONE... !!!
While TRUTH Like My Words Just SHINE Like The SUN... !!!
WITHOUT Writers' Block Cos' Poems I Write Use Logic Like SPOCK... !!!
This IS How I Feel Ask Rappers The Deal...
Cos' Writing For Them Is An Everyday Meal... !!!

Rappers ARE POETS Who Know How To FLOW IT... !!!
And Most Would Get SHOCKED By This Phrase... " Writers' Block "... !?!
Check Out The MIXTAPES' The Execs' HAVEN'T GOT... !!!!!
Oh And Just For Performers Who Like To... " PERFORM " ...
These Emcees Appear To Have Words In Their Head Like Brewers Have BEER... !!!
So DON'T Think You're Cool Cos' You've Got A Few of Your Words In Your Head...

Cos' ANY Good Rapper When They REPRESENT...
Will Get You A Part In The NEW... " LIVING DEAD "... !!!!!
OKAY... ENOUGH Said... Poets RECITE Or Read To The Mic'... !!!
STOP Putting On ACTS It's NOT ... " OPENING NIGHT " ... !!!
That's Just MY VIEW It May Not Be Right... ???
But ARGUE Your Corner With LOGIC Alright... !!!

Cos' When I Reply You Might Get A FRIGHT... !!!
Cos' My Point of View Comes From FACTUAL INSIGHT... !!!!!
So As This Poem Transcends Try Writing What's REAL...
DON'T Try To Conceal... What You FEEL In Your Words...
Your Words Should Be YOU Cos' In You Is What's TRUE... !!!
LOVE What You've Got And Then This Might STOP... ???
The Chances of Getting... This Thing ...
