'Don't Tell Yourself Lies' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 24/6/2005

United Kingdom

I've Been TRULY SURPRISED ... !!!
In Fact ... " MESMERISED " ....... !!!!

By The Volume of People ...
Who ... Tell Themselves Lies ... !!!

These Acts I Believe ...
Give Liars ... " Relief " ...

But Liars Are FOOLS ...
Who Simply ... AREN'T Cool ... !!!

And People Like These ...
Know NOT What They Do ... ?!?

In Fact That's NOT TRUE ... !!!!

But Does Give You Some Clues ...
On Why These FAKE People ...
Don't Have ... SHINY Shoes ... !!!

They Walk In A Mire ...
of .... " Liars for Hire " ....

They Claim The Good Life ...
But Are NOT Richard Briers ... ?!?

They DO Make Me Laugh ... !!!
But They AIN'T Richard Pryor ... !!!!

Their ... " Devilish Ways " ...
Will Earn Them ... " HELLS' FIRE " ... !!!!

This Thing Has NO COLOUR ... !!!

A Liar's ... A LIAR ... !!!!!

But That ISN'T ME ... !!!
Try ... Tapping My Wire ... !!!

"IT ISN'T JUST WHITES !
YES BLACKS DO IT TOO !"

To Think It's One Culture ...
Is Really .... " NOT COOL " .... !!!

DON'T BE ... " A Fool " ... !!!

You're Lying To ... YOU ... !?!
To Think That ... " Your Creed " ..
Has Always Been ... " True " ...

It's Time To Move On ...
And Give You Some Proof ...
That ... Loved Ones You Have ...
May Just ... TAINT Your View ... !!!

Those Who You Feel ...
Would NOT ... Lie To You ...

Does Your Family ... ?
Have A ... GENUINE Crew ... ?!?

Or Do You Have Relatives ... ?
Being .... UNTRUE ... ?!? ...

Who ... Travel Through Time ...
WITHOUT ... " Doctor Who " ... !!!

Their Ship Is UNStabLE ...
Their Life Is .... " A Fable " ....
Kind of Like Guys ...
Who Sell ... " DODGY CABLE " ... !!!

Yeah Funny I Know ...
But Who's At YOUR Table ... ?!?
ROCKING Your Cradle ... !?!

I'll ... Give You A Choice ....
These Two ... Cain or Abel ... ???

Marriage Is Something ...
To Give You MORE Clues ...

That ... LOVE Is A Word ...
That ... GOOD LIARS Use ... !!!!!

DON'T Get It Confused ...
This LOVE Thing's ABUSED ...
By Liars Who USE It ...
To Get Some NEW Shoes ... !!!

It's Money You See ...
That Gives Liars GLEE ... !!!

Emotions Get Played With ...
Right To ... " Pregnancy " ... !!!

LOVE Is A ... GREAT THING ... !!!!

When Given For FREE ... !!!!!

But MANY Now USE IT ...
To ... FULFIL Their Greed ...

Just Look At Divorce Rates ...
Or ... Watch Your TV ...

I Really DON'T Care ...
If You Don't Want To See ... !!!!!

THE TRUTH Is This Simple ...

It's .... REALITY .... !!!!!

We All May ... Fall Victim ...
of Those Who Proceed ...
To ..."Hide Who They Are" ...
Behind LIES That They Feed ...

They're LYING To You ...
And LYING To Me ... !!!

Some of These People ...
.... Recite Poetry .... !!!

Some of These People ...
Are Rappers ... BELIEVE ... !!!

They Really Don't Know ... ?
What It Is To ... " Emcee " ... ?

This Is A MASTER ...
of .... " Ceremonies " ....

These Are TRUE POETS ...
Like ..... " Talib Kweli " .....

Or Maybe ... THIS NAME ... ?

The Brother ... " Big V " ... ?!?
Or A Guy Called ... BIG VIRGE ... !?!

Okay I Mean .... ME .... !!!!!

A Man Who Speaks TRUTH ...
In This Here .... " Poetry " ....

I DON'T Want To Be ...
Above ... Humility ... !!!!!!

I Just Want To See ...
MORE ... TRUE Poetry ... !!!

That SHUNS Foolish Pride ...
And Liars Who Feed ...
On ... " Poetic Liars " ...

These ... " Fictional Writers " ...
Just Write For THEMSELVES ...
To Earn A FAST BUCK ....
From .... " Media Wealth " ....

PLEASE OPEN Your Eyes ...
Let TRUTH Be Your Guide ...
Cos' It Really AIN'T Wise ...
To Have A ... FAKE Guise ... !!!!!
