“Of Course We Are Ignored” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 21/9/2020

Of Course We’re IGNORED ... !!!  
Those Whose Art Is RAW ... !!!
 

When It Comes To Views ...  
That DEFINE The TRUTH ...  
About How It Is ...  
When You’re One Who THINKS ...  
And Has ... DARK SKIN ... !!!
 

And Does NOT RESTRICT ...  
How You Speak About Things ...  
When It Comes To Racists ...  
And Historical Links ...  
That Expose DARK Truths ...  
About Blacks Who Abused ...  
Those With DARK Hues ...  
Within Their Own Crews ... !!!
 
 
So NOT The Types Hand Picked ...  
To Be A ... “ Good Nig’ “ ... !!!  
 
Who WON’T ...  
Go Off The Script Just Like Kanye Did ... !!!  
 
But Hey I’m Not Like Him ... !!!  
 
Or Like Those In The Throes ...  
... of These TV Shows ...  
 
Now Winning Awards ... !!!  
And Getting Applause ...  
Because Their Cause ...  
Is To Expose Flaws ...  
That Show How It Goes ...  
In Entertainment Zones ...  
 
Where Light Skin Tones ...  
Get To Be Around Those ...  
Who APPARENTLY NOW ...  
WANT BLACK Folks Around ... !!!
 
 
When For YEARS They’ve Been ...  
UNABLE To See ...  
How Racism Feeds The INDUSTRY ... ?!?  
 
Where Artists Deal In Being REAL ... !?!  
Well Actually REAL FAKE BELIEVE ... !!!  
 
They’re PAID To LIE ...  
Okay Paid To ACT ...  
But The Simple FACT Is That Black Minds ...  
Have Been CAST ASIDE ...  
If They’re The Type ...  
To QUESTION Things ...  
Like Light Skins Being Picked ...  
To Play The Roles ...  
of DARK SKINNED Folks ... ?!?
 
 
Who KEPT ... TIGHT LIPS ...  
When They Got RICH ...  
For Doing These Things ... !?!  
 
And When It Comes To Music ...  
We’re IGNORED If We Bring ...  
... CONSCIOUS Lyrics ...
 
 
That DON’T Talk About Things ...  
Like KILLING Black Skins ...  
Or Drug Dealing Like Some Criminal King ... !!!  
 
Who Believes That’s The Way ...  
To Be Seen As Being GREAT ... !!!  
 
So That Some White Guy ...  
Can Sit Back And SMILE ...  
When They Get PAID ...  
For Getting IGNORANCE Played ...  
On Radio Air Waves ... !!!
 
 
You See When You Are Black ...  
And DON’T Sign Contracts ...  
To Make Music Like THAT ...
 
That’s Right You’re IGNORED ...  
 
Thrown On The Cutting Floor ...  
And Told NOT TO CALL ...
Their Office ... ANYMORE ... !!!
 
 
So Now That A FEW ...  
Are GETTING THROUGH ...  
 
They’re Seen As Being BOLD ...  
When They’ve Sold Their Souls ...  
 
To Be Amongst Those ...  
Who Are FREAKY Like Ho’s ...  
Or Yes ... PROSTITUTES ...  
So DON’T Get It Confused ... !!!
 
 
Poverty Breeds An INABILITY ...  
To REFUSE Money ...
 
That Gives Life SECURITY ...  
That’s BEYOND BELIEF ... !!!
 
 
So It's EASY To See ...  
Why REAL ARTISTRY ...  
Is FORSAKEN To Be ...  
An Industry SLAVE ...
 
Whose Fame Is Gained ...  
By NOT Being Brave ...  
 
When You Have A Black Face ...
And .... “ Entertain “ ....  
You’d Better Believe That Whites Will See ...  
A Person Who They Think Is Cool ...  
 
Because You CHOOSE ...  
To Be A PLIABLE TOOL ...  
Who Can Be ...USED ...  
 
So Don’t Get It Confused ... ?!?
 
 
Blacks Artists Who ...  
QUICKLY Get Through ... !!!  
DON’T Tend To Be ...  
Those Who Deal In Artistry ...  
 
That’s AUTHENTIC ...  
And Has ... INTEGRITY ... !!!
 
 
Because Blacks Whose Thoughts ...  
And Creations Are RAW ... !!!  
 
Are Those That FORCE ...  
Whites To CLOSE DOORS ...  
BEFORE Their Art Can Cause ...  
PROBLEMS That ENFORCE ...  
The Type of Race War ...  
That’ll Rock WEAK Jaws ... !!!
 
 
So These Last Words ...  
of BIG VIRGE Verse ...  
 
Explain Why Blacks ...  
Who DON’T Compromise ...  
What We Choose To Write ...  
To ... Fall In Line ...  
 
DON’T Get Contracts ... !!!  
And STRUGGLE To EVER GET RECOGNISED ...  
BEFORE We’ve GONE And LOST Our Lives ... !!!  
 
And Are The Reason Why ...  
These Poetic Lines of REALITY RHYMES ...  
 
Are Those I Have Called ...
