"Straight Speak" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 18/1/2021

Now This Poetic Piece ...
Is One That Simply ...
Reveals My Belief ...
 
That We .....
Need More Straight Speak ...
... In Todayís Artistry ... !!!

 
Of Course Varietyís ...
A Part of Poetry ...
As It Really Should Be ...
In The Things That We See ...
 
But I Really Do Think ...
That Denial of This ...  
Is A BIG TRAVESTY ... !!!
 
The Use of Lyrics ...
To Express Through ...
... Straight Speak ...
 
Cos To Deny It Just WREAKS ...  
of Not Keeping Things REAL ... !!!

 
And Then .....  
Truth Ends Up ... MISSING ... !!!
When Some Are Descriptive ...
Because They Use Clippings ...
As Well As Fine Trimmings ...
To Disguise The Realness ...
of Thingís That Theyíre Thinking ...  
 
ESPECIALLY When ...
Words Expressed In Poems ...
Are Those That Make Them ...
RETHINK The Positions ...
Of Their Dispositions ... !!!
 
When Verse of REALISM ...
Starts Pitching And Hitting ...
 
Their Thoughts ...
... OUT of Ball Parks ... !!!
 
In Ways That Leave Marks ...
Like Bites That Hit Hard ...
From A Hungry Bull Shark ... !!!
 
So Leaves Marks Just Like Cards ...
That Deceive And Then THIEVE ...
Gamblers of Their Money ... !!!
 
Because What They Believe ...
Are Indeed Fallacies ...
That DON'T Deal In Straight Speak ...  
 
So This Piece Shares Desires ...
To ... EXTINGUISH Liars ...
Who Claim To Be Writers ...
 
Whose Writingís Inviting ...
The Plying of LYING ...
In Scripture Thatís Written ...
To Keep The Truth Hidden ... !!!

 
Cosí Their Verse Is RIDDEN ...
With Levels of ... Fiction ...
That Now Needs DISMISSING ...
From Being What's Given ...
Within Lyricism ...
That Now Is Commissioned ...
For ... Tomorrowís Children ... !!!
 
From Rap That Is Driven ...
To Veer From Straight Spitting ...
 
To These Abstract Visions ...
That Can Leave Opinions ...
In Wells Left With Wishes ...
 
That DONíT Indulge TRUTH ... !!!
 
They Create Hopes That Use ...
Issues That Confuse ...
When It Comes To How We ...
Place Values On Beliefs ...
 
Instead of Free Speech ...
That Deals In Straight Speak ... !!!

 
I Get That Some Art ...
Leaves Viewers To Chart ...
Their Own Way To View ...
What Itís Trying To Do ...
 
But Is Art About CLUES ...
Or Reflecting Whatís TRUE ... ?!?
 
Because Fiction Thatís GOOD ...
DOESNíT Deal In Falsehoods ...  
It Simply EXPANDS ...
On REALITY STRANDS ... !!!

 
And Simply Is SEASONED ...
To Make It MORE PLEASING ...
To Those Who CANíT Deal ...
With ... REALITY Meals ... !!!
 
So My Point Is NOT Saying ...  
That Fiction Needs Slaying ... !!!
But That Art Has A DUTY ...
To Deal With Things TRULY ... !!!
 
Now Most WON'T Agree ... !!!
Cosí The TRUTH Is SCARY ...  
To Mind States NOT READY ...
For TRUTH That WEIGHS HEAVY ... !!!
 
But ... ISNíT It Time ...
To Use What We Write ...
Through Our Creative Vibes ...
To ... NOT Deal In Lies ... ?!?

 
Be They Those of The Mind ...
Or Those That Comply ...
With Trying To DENY ...
The Things In Our Sight ...  
That Reflect Our REAL Lives ...
 
Now I May Well Be WRONG ... ?!?
But This Wordplay Belongs ...
In A Place Where Debate ...
Talks On What We Create ...
And Then Put On Display ...
In Artistic Wordplay ...
That Will Be Read Today ...
 
As Well As ... Tomorrow ... !!!
 
When We See So Much Sorrow ...  
And Truth That Is Hollowed ...
Because We BELIEVE ...  
In Peoples' Fantasies ...
 
That Now Spread Fallacies ...
Like These Conspiracies ...
Spread On Internet Feeds ...
 
I Guess Itís Just Me ...
Maybe Thinking TOO DEEP ... ?!?
 
About ... How Artistry ...
Is Affecting Our Seeds ...
And Our Societies ...
 
I Guess ...  
Those Who Have Lives ...
That Are Hunky Dory ...
Enjoy A GOOD Story ... !?!
 
But Stories Now BORE Me ...
As Do ... ALLEGORIES ... !!!!!

 
As I Said ... In A World ...
Where Truthís Getting Burned ... !!!
 
Iím A Writer Who YEARNS ...
For The Truth To Get Turns ...
To Be What Is HEARD ...
And READ In The Verse ...
That Readers Observe ...
 
OF COURSE Truth Can HURT ...
But NOT Quite Like DECEIT ... !!!

 
So This Poetic Piece ...
ISNíT Trying To PREACH ...
Or To Try To FORCE FEED ... !!!

 
Itís Just Saying That We ...
Who Now Use Artistry ...
To Reflect What We Feel ...
About Things That We See ...
 
When It Comes To Our ART ...  
And ... CREATIVITY ...
 
Sometimes ... Have A DUTY ...
ESPECIALLY NOW In A World SO CRAZY ... ?!?

 
To Now Deal In ...

Author's Note
As the poem says, especially in these days and times, I really do believe, that we could do with more of it, from artists and especially writers....
