"Are You Afraid ?" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 25/2/2006

Are You AFRAID of ...
What You See ...
When You look At Me ... ?  
 
Well Can't You See ...  
That This Is How Most Racists Be ... ?  
 
If You're AFRAID ...  
Because I'm TALL And BLACK ...  
 
Why Be Like THAT ...  
I'm Just A ... MAN ... ?!?
 
 
"THINK First Old Chap !" ....  
 
Because What Comes Next ...  
Are ... RACIST Acts ...  
Like DEADLY Use of ...  
Tools Like An AXE ... !!!  
 
Acts Like These Are Most EXTREME ... !!!  
But FEAR Plays A Part In RACIST Hearts ...  
 
Who Make CRUEL Moves ...  
Both CRUDE And SHREWD ... !!!  
 
Some Simply Give Jobs ...  
To ... RACIST Yobs ... !!!  
Or GREEDY Toffs ...  
Who Sit And Plot ...  
How They Can Rob ...  
 
If You DON'T Believe Me ...  
Just Look At ... " ENRON " ... !!!  
 
Don't Know The FULL COUP ...  
But To Tell You The TRUTH ...  
These Corporate Crimes ...  
Happen All The Time ... !!!  
While Blacks Like Me ...  
Keep Writing Rhymes ...  
 
But You're AFRAID of ME ... ?!?  
 
Come On Now PLEASE ...  
Of Course Some Blacks ...  
Commit ... EVIL Deeds ... !!!  
 
But Who REALLY CONTROLS Economies ... ?!?  
And Move With Crews of Forty Thieves ... ???
 
 
And Feed FALLACIES Through Your TV's ... ?  
Why ON EARTH Are You SCARED of ME ... !?!  
 
"But Virge, don't you see, you look scary !"  
 
That's A POOR EXCUSE ...  
Can't You Think of Something New ... !?!  
 
There Are BIG White Men ...  
Who Are ... SCARY TOO ... !!!  
 
I DON'T Make The Policies ...  
That Leave People Begging ...  
... On Their KNEES ... !!!  
 
And DON'T Employ ...  
... KNOWN PAEDOPHILES ...  
To Educate And ABUSE Your Child ... !!!
 
 
I DON'T Believe In POINTLESS WARS ...  
But You're SCARED of ME ...  
And Choose To .................... Ignore ...  
My Presence When I Walk Through Doors ..... !!!!!!!  
 
Your IGNORANCE ...  
Is Beginning To BORE ... !!!
 
 
But LISTEN UP ...  
BLACK Woman And Man ...  
I Mean YOU TOO ...  
Those Who Act ...  
Like I'm A THREAT To YOU ... ?!?
 
 
Oh YES It's TRUE ...  
EVERYDAY I Get PROOF ... !!!  
 
When I Walk The Streets ...  
It's BEYOND BELIEF ...  
The Way Some Blacks ...  
Choose To LOOK AT ME ... !!!!!!  
 
What You Looking At Black ... ?  
I'M NOT Gonna Attack ... ?  
Does The Way I Look ...  
REALLY Make You Think That ... ?!?
 
 
Try Looking In The MIRROR ...  
Let Your Judgements SIMMER .............  
 
And REMEMBER Who It Is ...  
You RESPECTED As Kids ...  
Bet It WASN'T
... " ELVIS " ... !!!!!!  
 
How About ... MARLEY ... ???  
 
A Man Whose Appearance ...  
Was A Little Like Me ... !!!  
 
I Bet ELDERS In Your Family ...  
Have Got His Music On CD ... !!!  
Or BETTER STILL On A Vinyl LP ... !!!!  
 
And What About NOW ...  
Do Your Kids Play Sounds ...  
By ... Mister Fifty ... ?  
 
FORGET How He Looks ...  
What He Says Is SCARY ... !!!!!
 
 
Well ... NOT To Me ... !!!!!  
 
But The Media Says ...  
That Songs He Makes ...  
Breed VIOLENT Brains ...  
And Street Gunplay ... !!!  
 
If You Had To Face THAT ...  
What Would You Say ... ?  
Would You Be AFRAID ... ???  
 
I Think You Will ...  
If You Face Being KILLED ...  
So When You See Me ...  
I Suggest You CHILL ... !!!!!!  
 
Because I Believe In ...  
... LOVE And PEACE ...  
And Also YES ...  
... Black UNITY ... !!!
 
 
When Will Blacks Learn To AGREE ... ?!?  
 
The Way I Look ...  
Shouldn't Leave You SHOOK ...  
Why Would You ASSUME ...  
That I'm A CROOK ... !?!?!  
 
You've Got .....  
MORE IMPORTANT Things To FEAR ...  
Than Thinking I'm Your ENEMY ...  
... When I Appear ... !!!!!  
 
New Orleans Should of Made It CLEAR ... !!!!!  
The Time's Drawing NEAR When Our Atmosphere ...  
Will Have Reached THE POINT of NO RETURN ...  
I Guess You'll Say ... " Oh Dear Oh Dear ! " ...  
 
But Will KEEP The Attitude ...  
That I'm A DANGER To YOU ...  
Well THAT's NOT COOL ... !!!  
 
You're AFRAID of ME ...  
Well I'm AFRAID of ... YOU ... !!!  
of What You BELIEVE ...  
And What You'll Do ...
 
 
Some of You Are A Bit CONFUSED ... !!!  
It's Sad But TRUE ...  
Many Blacks Have A TAINTED View ... !!!!!  
And STILL Haven't Learned ...  
From History's Clues ... !!!  
 
MONEY Is The BIG ISSUE ... !!!  
Instead of FEARING How I LOOK ... ?!?
 
 
You Should Try FEARING ...  
... Governments Books ... !!!  
The Things You'll Find ...  
May Leave You SHOOK ...  
But You'll Find Recipes ...  
On How To COOK ... !!!!!!!!!!  
 
How To ... " Cook Up A Plan " ...  
To ... CONTROL Humans ... !!!
 
 
"Lets give them cash, and work contracts,  
then just like that, we'll take it back !  
Make them buy homes, then offer them loans,  
then when they're old, with fragile bones,  
make them pay a toll, for property that they,  
never owned !"
 
 
That's The MASSES Folks ...  
And That's NO JOKE ... !!!  
But You WON'T Be BROKE ...  
If You're In The RIGHT Fold ...  
Because They're The Ones ...  
Who KEEP A TIGHT HOLD ...  
On ALL Their Homes ...  
And ... Pots of Gold ... !!!!!!  
 
But ....  
 
FEAR ME If You Like ...  
And My Style of Rhyme ...  
If You Find You SUFFER ...  
And Have NO HOME ...  
I'm NOT The Type To Say ...  
" I TOLD YOU SO ! " ...  
 
Actually I AM ...  
Because CLEARY YES ...  
 
... I Am THE MAN ... !!!  
 
I Guess You're Thinking ...  
I'm An ... ARROGANT Black ... !!!  
 
Well TEN YEARS Down The Line ...  
When You CAN'T AFFORD A FLAT ... ?!!!?  
Maybe Then You'll Agree With My Poetry ... ???  
 
It Seems We'll Have To Wait And See ......................................  
 
If MY Wordplay ...  
At The End of The Day ...  
Is WRONG or RIGHT ... ???  
 
Or Is The Type ...  
That Deserves BIG HYPE ...  
And Should Be Heard ...  
Through WORLDWIDE MIcs' ... !!!  
 
Meantime I Face Delays And Games ...  
From Those Who KEEP My Use of Prose ...  
 
... KEPT ON HOLD ...  
And STEERED WELL CLEAR From Public Ears ...  
Because of Their FEARS And FALSE Veneers ... !!!!!  
 
So The LAST Question ...  
I'll Write On This Page ...  
Or When Performed ...  
Will Be Said On Stage ...  
 
Are These THREE Words ....  
 
....... " Are You Afraid " ...... ???
