"The Like Brigade” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 27/11/2018

What Is It These Days ...
With Peoples Ways ... ?!?  

Cos' It’s CLEAR Nowadays ...  
That To Get Yourself Fame ...  
You’ll Need The SUPPORT ...  
of The ... “ LIKE Brigade “ ... !!!
 
Because Light Has Been ...
..... WITHDRAWN .....  
From How Stardom Is BORN ...  
 
From Apps That ATTRACT ...  
Where LIKES Make Ties ...  
To Those Whose LIKES ...  
Disguise Their Vibe ... !!!  
of Being Quite NEEDY ...  
As Well As YES ... CREEPY ... !!!!!  
 
It’s Weird How A Like ...  
Can Make Some Feel RIGHT ...  
 
Even If What They’re Showing ...  
Is A ... Profile of LIES ... !?!  
 
These Brigades Pave The Way ...  
For Likes To Now SWAY ... !!!
 
Who It Is That Sees FAME ...  
And To Have Their Name ...  
Become ALL THE RAGE ... !!!!!
 
Even If As They Say ...  
You Only Get Fifteen Minutes ...

 
Which Basically Means ...  
That Your Fame Is Short Lived ...  
Because LIKE Brigades Are Fickle ...  
 
So CUT Like SICKLES ...  
And Therefore Trickle ...  
Their Likes ELSEWHERE ....................  
So That Yours Become BARE ... !!!!!  
 
Like Women Who Be Trickin’ ...  
 
Oh You’ll Get LIKES ...  
When You Say What They LIKE ... !!!  
 
But If You Say THINGS ...  
That Like REALITY ... STING ... !!!
 
Her Smiles Will CHANGE ...  
To A FROWNING FACE ... !!!
 
Just Ask A Guy Whose Seen The Tide ...  
Turn QUICKLY From LIKES ...  
To Something NOT SO NICE ... !!!  
 
When His Girlfriend Or WIFE ...  
Decides To Switch Lanes ...
Like These ... Like Brigades ...
 
Do You See What I’m Saying ... ???  
If Ya AIN’T Getting LIKES ...  
 
You Can Say Goodbye ............  
To SEEING ... OPEN Thighs ...  
Or ... Tasting THAT Pie .............  
Where POPULARITY TIES ...  
Your Game To TOP PRIZE ... !!!
 
Emojis From PHONEYS ...  
Because You’ve Won ...
... " Tonys’ " ...  
And Other Awards ... !!!  
 
But When You Look CLOSELY ...  
And KNOW The REAL SCORE ...  
 
Some People Are LIKING ...  
ABUSERS Whose FLAWS ...  
Suddenly They ... DEPLORE ... ?!!!?

 
I Guess You Could Say ....  
Like ... " Loki and Thor " ... !!!
 
One Minute AT WAR ...  
Then The Next Their Attempting ....  
To PROVE To Be MORE ... ?!?  
 
By ... LIKING Each Other ...  
Sometimes I Now Wonder ...  
 
How Suckers Now Smother ...  
Dislike For Their Brothers ... ?!?
 
By CLAIMING To LIKE ...  
When They CLEARLY DISLIKE ...  
... The Vibe of Their Lives ... !!!
 
When They’re NOT The Type ...  
To Tell ... BAREFACED Lies ... !!!!!
 
I Mean SERIOUSLY ... WHY ... ???  
Do SO MANY Want ... “ Likes “ ... ???  
 
I Guess From The Old Days ...  
Right Up To ... TODAY ...  
... Insecurities REIGN ...  
In Most Peoples’ Brains ...

 
Pretty Much Like The Ways ...  
 
of ...  
 
..... “ The LIKE Brigade “ ...
