"Disrespect" ... written by Big Virge 22/04/2005

This ... Disrespect Thing ...
IS ... OUT OF CONTROL ... !!!

From Work To Street Corners ...
To ... Most Peoples' Homes ... !!!

My Poetry Roams .............................
Just Like Mobile Phones ...

To ...
Send Out This Vibe ...

Disrespect NEEDS TO Die ... !!!!!

We NEED TO .... " RESPECT " ....
This Thing We Call ... LIFE ... !!!

LOVE One Another ... !!!
RESPECT ... IS What's RIGHT ... !!!

Take Things In Your Stride ...
DISMISS ................ Foolish Pride ... !!!!!

Cos' PRIDE Like They Say ...
Comes Before ... A FALL ... !!!!!!

And Next Thing ...
You've Guessed It ...
You're Facing A WALL ... !!!

A Wall FILLED WITH Bullies ...
Just Ready To BRAWL ... !!!

But Bullies Are Dummies ...
Whose Thought Waves ...
Are ..... "small" ..... !!!

Like Those Who Believe ...
In Avoiding ..... School Halls .....

That Line's For Those Kids ...
With ... SLEEPLESS Eyelids ... !!!

ALWAYS ...
Think of ... THIS ...

A Bully IS weak ... !!!

So ...
Don't Lose Your Sleep ... !!!
Cos' Bullies DON'T THINK ...
of The Sows That They REAP ... ?!?

OKAY ... YES I Mean ...
They'll Reap What They SOW ... !!!

Well Maybe I DON'T ... ?!?

But One Thing I KNOW ... !!!

IS ... Most Bullies Don't See ...
That The Sickness They Keep ...
Is REALLY A Sickness ...
That Slowly ... Just Creeps .................................

A Sickness ... That'll Give Em' ...
YES ... One FINAL Sleep.

And This May Be WHY ... ?
Our Youth Die On Streets ... !!!

The Cycle's COMPLETE ...
From Rappers Who Talk ...
About ... KILLING Emcees ... ?!?

To ...
Crimes Some Commit ...
Against ... " Humanity " ...

I'm Looking For ....
.... " Peace " ....
In Places I Be ... !!!

But ...
Let's Get Things STRAIGHT ...
Don't Come ... Pushing Me ... !!!!!

Be Nice And Believe Me ...
I'll Be Nice To You ... !!!

I May Turn My Cheek ...
If You Give Me ... Abuse ... ?

But .... !!!!!

That's Cos' I Choose ...
NOT TO ... Act The FOOL ... !!!

But Anything's Possible ...
I've Got Two Hands TOO ... !!!!!

I Put That Verse In ....
To PROVE ... PEACE CAN Be COOL ... !!!

But Everyone's Temper ...
Has Boundaries Too ... !!!!!

So ... What Do You Do ... ?
When THUGS Approach You ... ?!?

Well This I CAN'T Tell You ...
Cos' I Am NOT ... YOU ... !!!

I'm Simply Advising ...
Fighting NEEDS ... " downsizing " ... !!!!

But .....
This Thing ... RESPECT ...

Really NEEDS An UPRISING ... !!!!!

Cos' Violence INFECTS ...
And CANNOT Protect ...

The World and It's People ... !!!

So ...
Take Time and ... " Check " ...
The Thoughts I ... " Collect " ...

And Take Time Before ...

Dishing Out ....

.... " Disrespect " ....
