“Faking The Funk” ...  A Poem written by Big Virge 1/1/2021

Now It’s A Phrase That I Love  ...
But What Really Is Up ... ?!?
 
With Heads Who Choose To ...  
... FAKE THE FUNK ... !!!

 
Because It’s Really NOT COOL ...
To Be Pulling That Move ... !!!

 
Now These Rhymes Have Come ...
As It Approaches ... One ...
On The First Day Of ...
Twenty Twenty One ... !!!
 
It’s DARK Outside ...
But Funky Bass Lines ...
Are Those That Drive ...
This Set of Rhymes ...
 
Cos I’ve Got That Cool Number ...
... The Funky Drummer ...
Playing In The Background ...
That’s Right James Brown ...
As I Write These Words Down ... !!!
 
NO FAKING Was ALLOWED ...
When He Dropped Funky Sounds ... !!!

 
But ... SADLY Now ...
A Lot of Folks Around Towns ...
 
Be ... Faking The Funk ...
In The Talk That They Run ... !!!
 
It’s A SAD Thing To See ...
That So Many Human Beings ...
 
Be FAKER Than Tans ...
That Some Folks Have ...
That Prove That They’re A Sham ...

 
Like The Type of Plans ...
That CAN’T Withstand ...
The Type of Tests ...
That EXPOSE FRAUDULENCE ... !!!
 
Or ... Faking The Funk ...
Which Now Seems To Be Done ...
By Almost ... Everyone ... !?!
 
From Women To Men ...
Who Choose To PRETEND ...
That They’re Your Friend ...
 
And Have Your Best Interests ...
... Inside of Their Hearts ...  
 
Who Be Faking From The Start ...
Right To The End ...
of All Their ... Pretence ... !!!

 
A GROWING Trend ...
That Causes PROBLEMS ...
And HINDERS Progress ... !!!
 
The Type That Governments ...
Now Tend To DEFEND ...
When It Comes To The Things ...
That Prove To STING ... !!!
 
Like Personal Trips ...
During ... PANDEMICS ... !!!

 
These Corona Times ...
Have A Funky Vibe ...
 
That Have Clearly Supplied ...
... A LOT of LIES ...
And A LOT of CRIMES ...
of ... DIFFERENT Types ... !!!

 
So ... What Is Right ...
And What Invites ... ???
 
... FAKING THE FUNK ...
Like ... HUMAN SKUNKS ... !!!

 
Or Indeed Like Presidents ...
Who Now Will Run ...
How It Is That Humans ...
Trump This New Virus ... !!!
 
So Now Of Course It's Biden ...
Who Like Neo Is ... The One ...
 
Who Apparently WON'T ...
Be ... Faking The Funk ... !!!
 
Even When Some of The Votes ...
From Last Years Election ...
Still Have People STUMPED ... ?!?
 
Now I’m Really Not One ...
Who Believes It Was Rigged ...
But Can’t Help But Think ...
That Something STINKS ... !!!
 
Like ... OLD RACISTS ...
Who ... Look Like HIM ...
 
I Said ... LOOK Like Him ... !!!
 
Because Supremacists ...
CAN’T Possibly Be In Presidential Seats ... !?!
 
But Hey ... LOGICALLY ...
If Bill Clinton Could LIE ...
To The World And His Wife ... !!!

 
... Faking The Funk ...
Is Something That’s Been Done ...
By ... U.S. Presidents ... !!!!!!
 
From Nixon To Trump ...
To The Likes of Biden ...

 
How Can Anyone TRUST ...
Presidents ... AMERICAN ... ?!?
 
To ... NOT Tell Lies ...
About Anything Tied ...
To The LOSS of Life ... !!!
 
Like This Corona Disease ...
That Now Is Deemed ...
To Be A ... Global EMERGENCY ... !!!
 
Something Smells Funky ...
But It Ain’t A Cool Beat ... !!!

 
And As For The BRITS ...
People Need To Think ...

About What’s Been Shown ...
In ... How They Roll ...  
 
When It Comes To Things ...
Like ... Historical Links ...
To ... COLONIAL Tricks ... !!!
 
That WEREN'T Straight Up ...
They’ve ... Faked The Funk ...
For Many GENERATIONS ... !!!!!!

 
And Now We KNOW ...
When It Comes To Black Folks ...
Funky Stuff Has Always Run ...
And Clearly STILL DOES ...
When It Comes To Colours ...
That They CLAIM To LOVE ... !!!

 
So What Matters Now ...
Needs To Be Checked Out ... !!!

 
Before Running Around ...
And Claiming To Be PROUD ...
of Our Dark Skins ... !!!

 
People Need To THINK ...
BEFORE Making CLAIMS ...
That Are MORE Than FAKE ... !!!

 
When It Comes To Skin Tones ...
That Are Black Just Like Holes ...
Where Most Black Folks ...
... Won’t Boldly Go ...
And That’s NOT A JOKE ... !!!

 
It’s The Type of Quote ...
That Proves That I’m A Bloke ...
Who DOESN'T Fake The Funk ...
To Now Be Up In The Club ...

 
of LIARS And Buyers ...
of Talk That’s MIRED ...
 
By MORE Than A STENCH ...
of ... What Is FED ...
As Being Proud Blackness ... !?!

 
You’d Better LOOK CLOSE ...
At A LOT of Black Folks ...

And Check Which Skin Tones ...
Are The Ones They Chose ...
 
To Embrace And Breed ...
To Build Families ... !!!
 
Just Look Around Now ...
It’s ... Mixed Race Kids ...
Who Are Now The Black Kings ...
Receiving HONOURS ...
From Leaders Like JOHNSON ...
 
Which To Me’s A PROBLEM ...
Because He’s A WRONG'Un ... !!!
 
Who To Me DOESN'T Seem ...
To Be The Type Who Deals ...
In TRUTHFUL Deeds And HONESTY ... !!!
 
Like A Lot of These Chumps ...
In ... Governments ...
He’s Just Another One ...
Who Just Like His Chums ...
And ... PRESIDENTS ... !!!
 
ARE NOT Being TRUE ...
Like These People Who ...
Like To Run Their Gums ...
And JOIN The Club ...
of These New Age PUNKS ...
 
Who Be Running Round Towns ...
 
Just ....
 
.... “ Faking The Funk “ .... !!!
