"Leaving London" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 14/10/2005

Leaving London ... ?
I Can Understand Why ... !!!
 
Cos Things Aren't Safe ...
On Streets At Night ... !!!
 
MORE Gunfights ...
As Children DIE ...
 
Why ..... ?????
 
To PROVE ...
They Are ... " TOUGH GUYS !!! "  
 
It's HARD These Days ...
To ..... CHERISH Life ....
When MANY NOW ...
Carry ..... BIG KNIVES ..... !!!
 
MONEY ... IS ...
The .... ONLY PRIZE ...
THAT .... Keeps You From...
THAT .... Slippery Slide ....
 
Down To Where ...
DEAD PEOPLE ... Lie ...
 
NOT DEAD Like ... THAT ... !!!
BUT ....  
WITHOUT ................................................................................................. sight .... !!!
 
Thinking CASH .....
Can SAVE Their Life ... ?
 
Can This Be RIGHT ... ?
This .... LONDON Life ....  
When It Is ... HARD ...
To FIND ... " A Wife "... !!!
 
OR ... " A MAN " ...
Who's NOT ... A SHAM ... !!!
 
"Ladies ..... !!!!!
DON'T End up with THEM ... !!!"

 
Find One ...
Who Is ...... " STABLE " .....
and WILL ... TAKE CARE ...
of ... Your Children ... !!!!!!
 
cos' London Now ...
Is Index .... DOW ....
But Cash Is Simply ...
 
" Pence and Pounds " ...
 
and DOESN'T Make ...
Your Ideas ... " SOUND " ... !!!
 
Just Look At PRICES ...
In ... London Town ... !!!!!
 
They Are Making ...
People .... FROWN .... !!!!!
 
It's As If It's ... RUN ...  
By ... CIRCUS CLOWNS ... !!!
 
Tube Lines Are ...
Now ... SHUTTING DOWN ...
Because Tube Brakes ...
AREN'T Working Now .... !!!!!!!
 
People KEEP ...  
Saying To Me ...
 
That ....
 
"London ain't the place to be,
If you want a family !"

 
I Don't Want Kids ...
But Parents Seem ...
To Have Themselves ...
A ... " Different Dream " ...
 
A ... " Country Life " ...
With ... " PLEASANT Sights " ...
 
That's ... " The Plan " ...  
But ... Are They Right ... ???
 
FLOOD Waters ...
and ... RISING Tides ...
 
NO ... NOT By Sea... ?
Try ... " Countryside " ... !!!
 
"Ahhhh okay cool !
that seems alright,
but, isolation from the nation,
while your kids, play on Playstation ?
It's cool though bro, i'd rather that,  
than take that road, down to Soho !
There's STUFF going on, you don't want to know !
Clubs now filled with drunken blokes !
DRUGGING grls and snorting coc',
jus' like Ali's, Rope A Dope !"

 
People ... " ACT " ...
Like They AIN'T BROKE ... ?!?
 
But ...
That's The Way ...
The Story ... Goes ....
 
HIGHS and lows ....
Poetic .... Flows ....
 
... Storytelling ...
 
Using Prose ....
 
It's Just ... " MY VIEW " ....
Don't Know About ... " Yours " ... !?!
 
We're ... " U.S. BOUND " ....
How Does That Sound .... ???
 
Like ... New Orleans ...
We Could Be ... "DROWNED" ... ???
 
All Because of .....
CHASING .... Pounds .... !?!
 
I Want To See ...
SUNSHINE ... ALL DAY ... !!!!!
 
Beaches ..... YES ......
Right By A ... " BAY " ... !!!!!
 
Countryside .....
Where Children ... " PLAY " ... !!!
 
It Might Seem As Though ...
 
I'm ... " In A DAZE " ... !?!
 
But Somehow Things ....
Would Seem  ... " Okay " ...
 
Do You ...  
SEE ... What I'm Saying ... ?
 
At The End of The Day ...  
There ... HAS TO BE ....
A ...... " BETTER WAY " ..... !!!!?!!!!
 
These Are Things ...
I Hear Folks Say ...
 
This Has ... Become ...
A ... HOT Question ... !!!!!
 
Excuse Me Son ...........

DAMN !!!

Written so long ago, in a time where I was far away from where I am now, which happily is, much that I was stating in the poem at the time, as to where i'd rather be, and in hindsight, hearing so much about general problems in London NOW, much that was said here, has proven to become a reality ... !!!
