"The Total Package" ... A Poem written by Big Virge

So What In Truth ... ?  
Makes The ... "Total Package" ... ?  

Well A Black Lady Told Me ...  
It's UNIQUE Delivery With Words That RAVAGE ...
A Place In The Mind That Leaves PERMANENT DAMAGE ... !!!  
 
Now I'm NOT Linford Christie DON'T Look At My Crotch ... !!!  
It's Word That I Use That Reach The ... TOP NOTCH ... !!!  
 
I Play ... Lyrical Hopscotch While Others Stage Hop ...  
Cos Verses I'm Writing ... DON'T Need A Full Stop ...  
 
I'm Writing With Purpose To Make Your Heads NOD ... !!!  
But DON'T Nod Your Head Cos' My Delivery's Hot ...  
 
Nod Your Head Because ...  
Logic I've Used Makes Your Ears Point Like Spock .... !!!  
And Ideals You Hold Dear Are Now On The Rocks .... !!!  
 
It's Poets Who Plot While Dummies Just Rot ... !!!  
Cos' They're Stuck On ... " Performance " ...  
 
NOT ... Lyrics You've Got ... !?!  
 
Now DON'T Get Me Wrong ... I Can Take Criticism ... !!!  
 
BUT Assholes With Opinions Needn't Enter My Dominion ...  
Cos They'll Enter A VOID When My Wordplay Gets In Em' ... !!!!!  
 
I Strike With Snake Venom To Bite Through Your Denim ... !!!  
And Don't Feel The Need To Have A Palace Like ... " Blenheim " ... !?!  
 
Just Give Me A Home Without Mobile Phones ...  
And Freedom To Write ... Poems To DETHRONE ...  
These CORRUPT Institutions Who Leave Us Their Bones ...  
 
But Then Are The First To Say ...  
 
"Young man, when in Rome !" ...
 
"Yeah, when in Rome WHAT ?" ...
 
"Live like you're at home." ...  
 
Well That Just DOESN'T Seem Right ... ?  
MORE Hooligan Fights By Those IGNORANT Whites ... !!!  
 
Meantime It's Us Blacks Who They Say ... " Live To Fight " ... ?
 
Well ... Maybe That's TRUE ...  
That Thought ... Leaves Me BLUE ... !!!  
 
But ...  
Get Us Gloves And A Ring ...
And We'll See Who'll Be KING ... !!!  
 
And I'm NOT Talking Don More Like IRON MIKE ... !!!  
This Ear Biting Thing Still Doesn't Seem Right ... !?!  
 
Depression Set In When He Dealt With Women ...  
Who Saw A Young Man That They Knew They Could Scam ... !!!  
 
The Press Will Keep Saying ..."He did this Rape thing !" ...
 
But I Say To You People ... REMEMBER D'Amato ...  
A White Man Who Showed Mike Tyson ... TRUE LOVE ... !!!  
And PROVED That His Life ... Needn't Be So STACCATO ... !!!!!!!!  
 
DAMN That Was A hard Rhyme To Squash Like Tomato ... !!!!!!  
 
So ... Who Says PotAto ... ?  
And Who Says Potato ... ?  
 
Meantime Like CYRANO I Have A BIG Nose ... !!!  
But It Fits In My Face Like My Words Do In Prose ...  
 
So ...  
Let Me Get Back To This Lady Named Heather ...............  
She Was Feelin' A Poet By The Name of ... " John Hoe " ...  
 
A Geezer Whose Poems Have DIFFERENT Flow ... !!!!!!!!  
 
But Wouldn't You Know .....  
She Said ... "He stole the show !" ...  
Cos' He's Got His Own Flow ...
And Because of These Things ...  
 
She'll Remember John Hoe ... !!!  
 
So ... Does Delivery Define A Poetic Pro ... !???!  
Well John ... Now You Know You've Got A NEW FAN ... !!!  
While I She Suggested Was Just The Next Man ...  
Who WOULDN'T Stand Out In Creative Black Man ... !!!  
 
Well I Was Taken ABACK ... !!!  
But Diverting My Track ...  
Will Divert Me From FACTS ...  
 
And The FACT Is THIS ... !!!  
 
I'm NOT A Performer I'm A Social Reformer ... !!!  
My Wordplay Brings DAMAGE ... !!!!!!  
 
I'm NOT Here To Perform ....  
Or To ... Carry Your Baggage ... !!!  
Which I Guess Is Why In Heathers' Eyes ....  
And Maybe Now .... In Some of Yours ....  
 
I'm NOT ...... !!!
 
....... " The Total Package " ........
