Why DENY Me Because I'm Black ... !?!
Why Try To Stab Me In My Back ... !?!

Why PUT ON ACTS ... ?
Why Be Like That ... !?!?!

I'M SAYING Man Stick To THE FACTS ... !!!

Why Act Like I Do NOT Exist .... ?
Why Do Chicks Act Like A BITCH Then Wonder Why Their Face Gets HIT ... !?!?!?!

I'm SICK of Female Hypocrites Who Tend To Be These ... " FEMINISTS " ... ?!?

But QUICKLY End Up On Their BACKS Come On Now Girls Why Be Like That ... ?!?
You'll End Up With A STUPID MAN I Guess My Views Will UPSET THEM ... !!!!!

Why Be Like That What's The Problem ... ?!?
I'll AIR My Views What You Gonna Do ... ???

Disrespect Me Well Here's The Coup ... !!!
I May Decide To Do It To YOU ... !?!

Don't Make Me HAVE TO Give You PROOF ... !!!
Why Be Like THAT Just Face The TRUTH ... !!!

Most Girls These Days Now Act The FOOL ... !!!
And CLEARLY Need A MANNERS SCHOOL ... !!!!!

NOT Just Them But BIG MAN Too Are So Damn RUDE ... !!!
And Clearly Think They're ... BULLETPROOF ... !!!!!

I'M SAYING Man ... " Why Be Like That ? " ...

Do You REALLY WANT To Be ATTACKED ... !?!?!
There's NO WAY BACK When Men Decide To TAKE Your Life ... !!!!!

So Far I've Kept My ANGRY SIDE .... !!!!!
Well AWAY From ................................................................... " IGNORANT GUYS " ... !!!!!

But Don't Presume Or Worse ASSUME ... !!!
That I'm ABOVE ... Taking THAT RIDE .... !!!
That May End Up With LOSS of LIFE ... !!!

BELIEVE I've Tried To REJECT ................................. Pride ... !!!

But WANT My Piece of The DEVILS PIE ... !!!
Why Make Me Live A Poor Mans' Life ... ?!?

... " Why Be Like That " ... ?

GREEDY GUYS May Not Survive ... !?!
If They Decide To Take MY SLICE ... !!!!!
Black or White ... You'll Pay THE PRICE ... !!!
If You Incline To Use Designs ...
That Make Me RESORT To Committing Crimes ... !!!!!

My Mind Has SHUNNED Such .... " TEMPTATIONS " .....
But Like Tupac I Will PROMOTE The Use of Guns ...

If Britain Becomes .... " American " .... ?!?

IT ... ALREADY IS ... !!!
NEW AGE Racists Are ECONOMISTS ... !!!

Why Be Like THAT Why Feed Us RAP ... ?
About Selling Crack And Gun ATTACKS ... !?!?!?!

I'm TRYING ... NOT TO Be Like THAT ... !!!!!!

But English Cliques STILL Seem To ENJOY ...
Promoting Blacks Who SNORT The Coc' And End Up BROKE ... !!!!!

Now PLEASE TAKE NOTE of The Following Quotes ...

"Your technique Virge, when using words, has left me stirred !"

"Virge, the kids would love your words !"

"As usual V, your poetry, has touched something inside of me !"

"Virge, I want to hear some more, away from Londons', Poetry Whores !"

"You seem to be, an amazing guy, I did not mean to feed you lies !"

YES These ARE QUOTES From Certain Blokes ...
And From Girls Who SNIFF The Coc' ...
And Some Who Want To See Me BROKE ... !!!!!!!!

The Poetry Scene Seems To ATTRACT ...
Those Who LACK Humility Or Any Sense of DIGNITY ... !!!!!

I'm SAYING MAN ... " WHY BE Like THAT " ... ?

I'm Seeing Through Their ... "Shady Plans" ... !!!
They're REALLY SCARED of Who I AM ... !!!
And DON'T Believe In Giving Me .......
A Chance To SPEAK About English Society ... !!!

Well Now I've Had To Write A Piece To Let Them KNOW ... !!!
I've Got SO MANY DiFFeReNt Flows And Forms of Scripture Known As Prose ...

I May Turn Up At One of Your Shows And CHOKE YOU With One of YOUR Quotes ... !!!!!

I Can Hear You Now ... !!!

"Virgil STOP, WHY BE LIKE THAT !?!" ...

DON'T Take My Patience ... As A .......... Gap .............
For You To Leave My Wordplay .... "TRAPPED".

Because TRUTHFULLY You Might Get SLAPPED ... ?!?
By Words That HIT Like ... THUNDER CLAPS ... !!!!!

I'm REALLY NOT A Violent Man ... !!!
But WON'T Let You OBSTRUCT My Plan ... !!!

To Spread Some TRUTH To Women Men And Our Children ...
Because They NEED My Poetry NOT Your Phoney ... "Secret Cliques" ... !!!!!

Who Refuse To Choose To Let Them See ....
Wordplay That WILL FILL UP Gigs ... !!!!!
And May Just Help KEEP THEM Off Streets ... !!!
By Feeding Them ... REALITY ... !!!!!

Just ... ONE MORE THING ... !!!!!
Come CORRECT When Paying Me ... !!!!!
Cos' Now I Won't Do Gigs For Free ... !!!

If You Don't Just Wait And See ...

I've Seen ENOUGH of How You ... " ACT " ... !!!

That's Why THIS PIECE Is Simply Called ...
