" Love Thy Neighbour " ... For Those Who Don't Know ...
Was A 70's Show That Used Racist Jokes ...
To Show How It Goes With Some English Folks ...

FEAR of Blacks And That's JUST THAT ... !!!
Things Haven't Changed Much And That's A FACT ... !!!

But Some White Girls Take Time And Learn ...
That Black Men KNOW What ROCKS Their Boat ... !!!

Some White Men HATE To See Them Stray ............
Into Beds Where Black Men .... LAY .... !!!

Because Like They Say ...

"If he's not on crack !
Once they've had black, they won't turn back !"

Now I DON'T BELIEVE That This Is TRUE ... !!!!!
Cos' Girls These Days Are SO CONFUSED ... ?!?

Because of DRUGS And TV News ...
That Leaves Them Lost And With ISSUES ... !!!!!

... " Love Thy Neighbour " ... ?

Do Me A Favour ... !!!!!!!
Girls These Days Make Love HARD LABOUR ... !!?!!

But As I've Said The Show Reflects On How Racists Try To INFECT ... !!!
The Minds of YES Their Groups of FRIENDS From Stories Bred From IGNORANCE ... !!!!!!

"It's just the way they are !" ... They Say .....

"Without a brain, and taught to rape !"

"Hold on there mate, the news these days, has set things straight !"

"It seems, some whites are not so nice !
and like to sex, young child you'll find !
Yes, those profiled as, Paedophiles !"

"It's just the odd one !" ... I Hear them CRY ... !!!!

Like Those Employed By Government Types ...
With SEX OFFENCES On Their File ... ?!!!?

You're INSANE To CLAIM You're CIVILISED ... ?!!!?
When Kids Are ABUSED By Teacher Types ...

Most Crimes By Blacks AREN'T of THAT STYLE ... !!!
Most Blacks Commit Crimes To ... JUST SURVIVE ... !!!!!

... " Love Thy Neighbour " ...
PROVED That Blacks Face Racism Whilst Having To LABOUR ... !!!!!

Just To KEEP Themselves OFF STREETS ... !!!
Where Lives of Crime Are Then Designed ...

And Then The Racists Say ...

"Black people, have got no shame !"

Well The Show Was STOPPED In Seventy Six ...
Because of Complaints About What It Portrayed ... !!!

Well THIRTY YEARS LATER Things Seem The Same ... ?!?
We're STILL VICTIMS of English Racists ... !!!!!

They say, "Love Thy Neighbour couldn't air today !"...

WHY ..... ???

Because It Shows Old English Ways ... !?!
RACISM And ... Good Old HATE ... !!!!!!

So Love Thy Neighbour ... What Do You Say ... ?
How'd You Like To Wake Up To My Black Face ... !?!

Do You Feel ASHAMED of What You'll SAY ... ?!?!?

Let Me Explain Why You Feel Like That ...
You've Been PROGRAMMED To See Us THAT WAY ... !!!
THE DARKER We Are The Lower Our Grade .... !!!

EVEN TODAY Some Think That Way ... PROGRAMMED Okay ... !!!

But You Have A BRAIN ... !! ? !!

I'm Speaking MY MIND And WON'T APOLOGISE ... !!!!!
Some Blacks STILL THINK That They Are WHITE ... ??!??

Are You SURPRISED Well You UNCLE TOM Guys ...
May Just Be FIRST To Hear These Words ...

"Those black people, are worse than dirt !"

So UNCLE TOMS Do Those Words HURT ... ?!?

The Colour of Your Skin's STILL Deemed To Be A SIN ... !!!
Thirty Years On Love Thy Neighbour's GONE .................................. !!!

But Racism KEEPS Moving ON ... !!!
And STILL We Have These ... UNCLE TOMS ...
Some Who CLEARLY Now Wear THONGS ... !!!!!!!!

From New Orleans To English Streets ...
RACIST Police And ... "subtle schemes" ... !!!

Like Making SURE My Poetry Is Kept ... "unseen" ...
By Those Who CHOOSE To ............... RUN From TRUTH .......... !!!!!
These Days It Seems There's QUITE A FEW ...... !!!!!
Who Hide Behind A CROCK OF LIES ... !!!

Those Who Run Most Poetry Nights ...
Seem CLOSELY LINKED To Government Types ... !?!

FUNNY That ... I'm A Bit Surprised ...
That's NOT QUITE TRUE Moves They Make Are So SEE THROUGH ...

I Now Care NOT For Things They Do ... !!!

I'm NOT In This To INFLUENCE Or To Make Myself NEW Friends ... !!!
But Girls HELL YES I Love STRAIGHT Sex ... !!!!!
There's NO BETTER FRIEND Than YOU In The NUDE On My Double Bed ... !!!!!!!

SEE I Play It STRAIGHT ...
That's RIGHT I'M NOT Gay And DON'T Play Games ... !!!

UNLIKE These Blokes Who Use Weak Quotes ...
To Make You THINK They'll ROCK Your Boat ... !!!

But ... Enough of THAT ... !!!!!
Will Whites and Blacks Ever Face The Facts ... ?
BEFORE Governments Make Things COLLAPSE ... !!!!!

I Suggest You ... THINK ABOUT THAT ... !!!!!!

UNITY's A Flavour I Would SAVOUR ... !!!!!!

I'd Rather Have THAT Than Cash-Type Paper ... !!!
So Come On Folks Do Us ALL A FAVOUR ... !!!!!

Try Doing This YES ... PLEASE ...
