Why Oh WHY ... ???
Would You ... " Turn A Blind Eye " ... ?
To Things That Could Affect Your Life ... ?

MP's Do It ALL The Time ... !!!
But It's An English Thing So I'm NOT Surprised ...

As The Saying Goes ...

" Until It Happens To You " ...

You're Living In A World WITHOUT Sherlocks' Clues ...
I've Written A Piece Called ... " What Would You Do ? " ...

To SHOW People NIGHTMARES Come True ... !!!
New Orleans, Sri Lanka And Texas TOO ...
Are Places Now With Living Proof ...
That ANYONE Can LOSE Their Roof ... !!!!!

EVEN The Rich Are Having To Move ...
And Leave Behind ............................................ " Expensive Shoes " ...

What Would You Choose ... ?

LAVISH Things Or Food And A Roof ... ?!?

FORGET The News You'd Better Be Shrewd ... !!!
Cos' When DISASTER STRIKES It Just TAKES LIFE ... !!!!!!

Black or White Say What You Like ... !!!
But ... REMEMBER These Words ...

... " Goodbye and Goodnight " ... !!!!!!!!!!

Turning A Blind Eye REALLY Ain't Wise ... !!!
Cos' One Day YES You'll Be SURPRISED ... !!!!!

And Find The Time To ............. " Analyse " ...............

What You Have Done Within Your Life ...

Have You Done WRONG ... ?
Have You Done RIGHT ... ?

Have You Tried To ... Div - ide ... ?
Or Were You QUICK TO UNITE ... ???

Have You Shown RESPECT And Been Polite ...
Or Have You Done WHAT THE HELL YOU'VE LIKED ... ?!?

I Can Say This ...
I've Tried To Write And Use The Mic' ...
To Make Some See This World AIN'T RIGHT ... !!!!!!

From Race-Based HATE ... !!!
To Those WITHOUT A Food-FILLED Plate ... !!!

Sometimes YES I Get IRATE ... !!!!!!!!!!!!

Because of Those Who WILL NOT Face ... !!!
The Problems of The World Today ... ?!?

Yesterday And YES ... Tomorrow ... !!!
They're Simply Hollow And Willing To Follow ..........................................................
Bend Over And SWALLOW ... !!!

ANY OLD Thing Officials Say ... ?!?!?
But That's The Way Most People Stay ...

"Ignoring" ...................... FACTS About Axe Attacks ......
And Economies Working To .... "RESTRICT Blacks" ... !!!

Since Bombs Have HIT London's Tube Tracks ...
How Many Blacks Have Got The SACK ... !?!
Or Faced THE PUSH Out of ... " Backdoors " ... ?

I'm Not Sure Who's Keeping Score ... ???

New Orleans Has Shown How Those In POWER ...
Ignore .............................................. " The Poor " ............... !!!!!

And Leave Them To DIE Whether Black or White ... !!!
OPEN Your Eyes INSTEAD of Your Thighs ... !!!

Children NOW Are Compromised ... !!!
Because of WHAT NO Fuel Supply ... !?!

Truancy Now Is Running RIFE ... !!!
TOO MANY Lows And NOT ENOUGH Highs ... !!!

DON'T BE A Fool ...
Things AREN'T Right ... !!!

I Write These Things To OPEN Eyes ...

If You Have A Child ...

DON'T Let Them Buy Kate Moss's Clothes ...
Because What Comes Next Is A Coc' FILLED Nose ... !!!!!

THIS Is Simple Use of Prose ...

To WAKE UP Those Who CLEARLY CHOSE ...
To Think They'll NEVER Suffer WOES ... ?!?

So .....
How'd You Like These Lyrical Blows ... ???
It's Time To END REALITY Shows ... !!!!!

And REALISE It's Just NOT WISE ... !!!
To Do THIS THING ...

..... " Turn A Blind Eye " .....
