“Cancel Culture” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 8/7/2020

So This ... “ Cancel Culture “ ...
Now Seems To Be Structured ...
To ... RESTRICT Numbers ...

And Now Be The CONDUCTOR ... !!!
of What Folks Say And What Gets Played ...

Via TV Or Stage And WHO Gets Paid ...
As If THEY Are Some SPECIAL Class ...
Who Know How Far Free Speech Should Go ... !?!

But It Seems As Though They’re A Little LATE ... !!!
Where EXACTLY Were They When The ... KKK ...
Used To Murder Slaves Just Because of Their Race ... !!!

Oh, Because These Days,
Things Have REALLY Changed ...


Are These People INSANE ...
And NOT Using Their Brains ... ?!?

Because We STILL Have SLAVES ... !!!
And Heads Who CLEARLY Want To DICTATE ...

Are They Cancelling THEM ...
Or Doing What THEY SAY ... !?!


Or Just Causing PROBLEMS ...
Over Gender And Race ... ?!?

Well Some It Now Seems ...
Who’ve Made BIG MONEY ... !!!

Are UNCOMFORTABLE With ...
Them ... CANCELLING ... !!!

When It Comes To Free Speech ...
And Indeed The Arts Because of Policies ...
That Seem To STINK Like FARTS ... !!!

Have They Cancelled BOMBS ...
Or RACIST ... Sitcoms ...

Oh Yes NOW They Have ... !!!
AFTER These Shows Have ...
Made PLENTY of CASH ...
And Been Shown Across Lands ...

... INTERNATIONALLY ... !!!

On TV’s AND Indeed BIG SCREENS ... !!!

REPEATEDLY For The World To See ...

So Where Have They Been ... ?!?

BEFORE Gender Themes ...
And ... INEQUALITIES ...
Became The Very Fabric of SOCIETIES ... ?!?

Where APPARENTLY ...
... EVERYBODY Was FREE ...
To Be Who They Wanna Be ...


Well That’s A FALLACY ...
That’s NOT REALITY ... !!!


Just Like PIPE DREAMS ... !!!

Oh But SUDDENLY ... !!!
These New CANCEL POLICE ...

Are CANCELLING ...
And Now DAMAGING ... !!!

The Careers of Those ...
Who WON’T Be Controlled ... !!!

Like Those Who Speak ...
What They Want ... FREELY ... !!!

So They Can CANCEL ME ... !!!
Cos That’s How I NOW BE ... !!!

NOT Some HUMAN SHEEP ...
For Them To Shepherd And Keep ...
In Some PENITENTIARY...
Just Because of Free Speech ...

That DOESN’T Tread ... “ Lightly “ ...

Cos’ I ALREADY KNOW ...
How ... CANCELLING Goes ... !!!

Because It’s Really Not New ...
It’s What Censors Do ... !!!

But Here’s Some TRUTH ...
To UPSET Their Crews ... !!!

It’s One Rule For THEM ...
But NOT The Same For You ... !!!


If You’re NOT ONE ...
Who’ll Keep Your Mouth SHUT ...
To APPEASE These Teams ...

Who Now Want TOTAL CONTROL ... !!!

That’s Just The Way That The Story Now Goes ...
NO Bambi Or THUMPER To Be Some Foot Drummer ... !!!

Just A Breed of Vultures ...
Now Willing To PUNCTURE ...
Careers Like BAD Plumbers ... !!!

Whose Force Has A Cause ...
Now Trying To ENFORCE ..

What Should Be Put ASUNDER ....
This ... TRULY RIDICULOUS ... !!!

..... “ Cancel Culture “ ..... !!!

I'm clearly not the only one who feels like things regarding this cancel culture, are now going too far ! Freedom of speech and expression, should not be lessened, just because it offends, or stands against new trends ? So, as the poem says, it's not really a new thing, but the way it's being enforced now, is again, as the poem says, just ridiculous in my opinion.
