“Responses” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 21/2/2021

When It Comes To Responses ...  
I Rise ABOVE Nonsense ...  
That Most Heads Be Dropping ... !!!  

Because I Now Find ...  
That TOO Many Minds ...  
Have Become Inclined ...  
To Think That They’re Right ...  
Pretty Much ALL The Time ... ?!?


And Most Folks DON'T LISTEN ... !!!  
Or Work With Sound Thinking ...  
When It Comes To Their Visions  
of How We’re Now Living ...  
 
So Now My Responses ...  
Are Thoughtful And Conscious ...
 
 
Because of Reactions ...  
From Heads Who Seem ...  
....... "Trapped In" .......  
 
A World Where Their Actions ...  
And Thinking Are LACKING ...  
Ways of Relaxing Instead of Attacking ...  
Like Programmers ... HACKING ... !!!  
 
So Are Now UNRESPONSIVE ...  
To ... Vulcan Type Logic ... !!!
 
 
Emotions Are Running ...  
... A Little TOO HIGH ... !!!
 
 
And Some Heads Are FRONTIN' ...  
And Claiming They’re FINE ...  
 
When They’re Clearly ...  
... STRUGGLING ...
To Recognise ... WHY ...  
Their Blood Pressure's HIGH ... ?!?  
 
So Now Their Responding ...  
In Ways That Are WILD ... !!!
 
Man Woman And Child ... !!!  
 
We're In CRAZY Times ...  
Where It’s HARD To SURVIVE ... !!!  
 
But Some Are Responding ...  
In Ways That Are SHOCKING ...  
Because They’re UNNERVED ...  
By How Things Have Turned ...  
In This CORONA World ... !!!  
 
So Their Outbursts Now Serve ...  
To Cause People HURT ... !!!  
 
These Things I Observe ...  
And Now Put Into Verse ...  
 
Rather Than Let Them Be ...  
What Makes Me Angry ... !!!
 
It Is THERAPEUTIC ...  
To Write Or Use Music ...  
To STOP Yourself FUMING ...  
Because of BLOWN FUSES ... !!!
 
 
Responses Are Fuelling ...  
Some IGNORANT Movements ... !!!
 
So These Days I’m PRUDENT ...  
Like Students And Tutors ...  
Who Plan For The Future ...  
 
When It Comes To How ...  
I Respond To Dark Clouds ... !!!  
 
And Humans Who Now ...  
Like To Run Off Their Mouths ...  
In Ways That Are FOUL ... !!!  
 
So These Days I Tend ...  
To Keep A Cool Head ...  
Rather Than Get Upset ...  
And Let People Stress ...  
The Calmness I Set ...  
To Keep Myself Cool ...  
In The Face of Abuse ... !!!              
 
Because When I’m VEX ...  
My Responses Can Get ...  
 
... Incredibly VICIOUS ...  
As Well As PERNICIOUS ... !!!  
 
Or HARMFUL To Others ...  
In Ways That Can SHUDDER ...  
Like VIOLENT THUNDER ... !!!
 
 
So These Days I SMOTHER ...  
Responses That Puncture ...  
Respect And Good Structures ...  
 
That REJECT Destruction ... !!!  
 
I’d Rather Respond ...  
In Ways That Make Bonds ...  
That ENCOURAGE Brothers ...  
Young Sisters And Mothers ...  
 
To RESPECT Each Other ... !!!  
 
In Ways Where Responses ...  
Do NOT Cause Us Problems ... !!!
 
 
So Now My Responses ...  
Are Written With POLISH ...  
In ... Poetic Jottings ...  
That REMOVE The TOXINS ...  
of ... Lyrical NONSENSE ...  
That Sometimes FILLS COFFINS ... !!!
 
 
Because of What’s PROMPTED ...  
 
By ...... ANGRY ......  
 
..... “ Responses “ .....

These days it does seem, that you have to be, even more thoughtful than ever before, before your respond to things people say to you....
