"Mobilise" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 2/3/2007

It's Time To MOBILISE Those Who USE THEIR Minds ... !!!

For MORE THAN A Prize Or Bling That Shines ...
Those NOT inclined To Live By LIES Or Hide Behind Their PRIDE FILLED Lives ...

You Know The Type About WHOM I Write ... !!!

They're ALWAYS RIGHT ... !!!
EVEN WHEN They KNOW They're WRONG ... !?!

They've Got PROBLEMS But Run Along .......
As If Their Life SHINES Like ... " SPOTLIGHTS " ... !!!

They Come In Shapes That SHIFTERS Make ...
And Brandish SMILES Befitting of SNAKES ... !!!!!!

INSIDE They're VILE And In DENIAL ...
About Their Ways And Things They Say ...

They HATE Themselves But TELL Themselves ...

That ... " ALL IS WELL ! " ...

The Lies They Tell ...
SPIN Round and Round Like .... " Carousels " .... !!!!!!!!!!!
WITHOUT Nice Sounds or Fun Fair Smells ... !!!!!

I've Met TOO MANY In My Life Whose Brains AREN'T READY To MOBILISE ... !!!
Or FACE THE TRUTH About Their Lives That Reality's SCARY To Their Minds ...

But There Are A FEW Who Have STRONG Minds ...
And DON'T Confuse What's Wrong With Right ...

So MANY Make CLAIMS To Hide Their Shame ...
About The Things They TRULY Think And Wrestle With ...

So Take This In ... Here Comes The Link ...

... "I'm NOT RACIST !"

.... "I Hear ya miss, but let me, ask you this ?
.... Would ever give birth to a black mans kid ?
.... What, lost for words, something wrong with your lips ?"

See STILL Some Women Seem To Think ...
That ALL Black Men Are NASTY Things ... !!?!!

SHIPWRECKED And YES ... BIG BROTHER TOO ...
Continually Prove These Things Are TRUE ... !!!

DON'T Let Integration Have You FOOLED ... !!!
Integration Is Cool For Those Who Choose ...
To NOT BE Schooled By IGNORANT Crews ...

But Do Such Words Apply To ... YOU ... !?!

Now Those QUICK TO SAY ... "Of course they do !"

Are Those Who'll HATE My CLEVER Wordplay ...
Because It's Shrewd And Plays The Game of ...
TRUTH or DARE That Makes Them SCARED ... !!!!!

.... "How many black friends, do you really have ?"

... "I've got loads man !"

.... "Of course you have !"

... "Don't be like that !"

... "Would you have one of them,
.... take your daughters' hand ?
.... or trust them to, hold all your cash ?
.... What's the matter my man, cat got your tongue ?"

DON'T Get Me WRONG I'm Just Having FUN ... !!!

Can't we all just GET ALONG ... !?!?!

See The PROBLEM IS Racism LIVES IN ALL of Us ... !!!!!!!!!!!!

ESPECIALLY When It Comes To ... " Love " ...
Are YOU HONEST Enough To OPEN UP .... ?
When Asked Questions About THIS STUFF ... ?

It Seems To Me MOST ARE Too WORRIED ...
About What It Is People Might Feel ...
If The TRUTH Is REVEALED ...
About What We Think or INDEED Believe ... !!!

So MANY LIES So MANY Crimes of Different Types ...
In Peoples MINDS Which Is Why You'll Find ...

I'm NOW Inclined ...
To Find Minds WILLING To UNITE With Mine ... !!!
And See BEYOND ...................................................................................................
The Colour of Skins Because It's Time ...
To OPEN Eyes And OPEN Minds ...

It's A Time For The WISE To .......

........ " Mobilize " .........
