"Arguments" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 25/5/2005

People Like To Argue
Sometimes I Wonder ... WHY ... ?!?

Cos' When I Have An Argument ...
My Brain Cells Start To FRY ... !!!

SOME Arguments DO Lead To ... DEATH ... !!!

This IS NO WAY To ... " Die " ... !!!

I'm Writing This To Show You ...
That Arguing's A CRIME ...

A Crime of ... "minor differences" ...
A Crime of ... " TROUBLED Minds " ... !!!

We Live In TROUBLED Times ...
Where Arguments Are RIFE ... !!!!!

Arguments That Lead To WRONGS ...
Like Men BEATING Their Wives ... !?!

How Will Our Kids ... SURVIVE ...
When We Show VIOLENT SIGNS ... ?!?

An Argument Is NOTHING ...
If You Put Your Views .............................................. Aside .....

But When You CHOOSE To Give Abuse ...
You Could Be On The ... " Evening News " ...
For Acting Like A CANNON ............................................................... L o o s e ........... !!!!!!

You PULLED A Knife ...
Or WORSE ... A GUN ... !!!!!!

Which Goes To PROVE ...
..... An Argument .....
Is ANYTHING But Fun .... !!!!!

We Argue Over NONSENSE ... ?!?
When Simple Common Sense ...
Could Help Us To PREVENT ...
These POINTLESS Disagreements ...
AND These ... " ARGUMENTS " ... !!!!!

Just YESTERDAY I Argued With ...
One of My ... Closest Friends ... !!!
Cos' SIGNALS Were MiSReaD ... !!!

But When I Tried To ...
... Talk To Him ...

The Phone Line Just Went .... DEAD.
Then Came The FLOOD of Texts ... !!!

This TEXTING Gets Me VEX .... !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cos' Texting Is ................................. Impersonal .....
And Most Texts Are ... Mis Re ad ... !!!

My View Is This ... TRY To Enlist ...
Your BRAIN When Feeling STRAIN ... !!!!!

Sometimes When Feeling PAIN .....

Your Mouth Is ... THINKING FOR YOU ... !!!

It's Time Then To REFRAIN ...
END The ... Conversation.
By ... " Mutual Consultation " ...
Take Stock of Where The PROBLEM Is ...
and Then ... Try It AGAIN ... !!!

But THIS TIME ...
FACE To FACE .... !!!

NO VIOLENCE In The Place ... !!!
But POSITIVE Debate ... !!!

And If You Find ...
NO ... " Middle Ground " ...

AGREE To ... DISAGREE .......... !!!

We CAN'T Agree On EVERYTHING ... !!!
So What's The Point of STRESSING .... !!???!!

DON'T Sit There ... " Second Guessing " ... ????
Arguments ARE TESTING ... !!!

But If You CAN RESOLVE Them ...
You May Live With ... Gods' Blessing ...

Arguments DO FUEL Some Lives ...

But When You Sit Back And ...................... Take Time ..............

MOST Arguments Simply ... " dIsGuIse " ...
DEVILS We Hide INSIDE Our Mind ...

Take THIS Advice ...
PLEASE Recognise ...
An Argument Is Some's Device ...
To Make Them FEEL ...
A ... " Sense of Pride " ...

But Pride Can Take Ya ... On A Ride ...
Just Like DARTH To The DARK SIDE ... !?!

Be Like YODA ... !!!
USE Your MIND To Be Your Guide ... !!!

ARGUE ... "Less" ...
And RECOGNISE ...

That Arguments ...
Bring LOWS NOT Highs ... !!!!!

USE Your Mind ...
To Be MORE WISE ... !!!

DON'T Walk With The ... "BLIND" ... !!!

OPEN Your Eyes ... !!!

Try To VENT Your DISCONTENT ...

If You HAVE TO ... " Circumvent " ... ?
DO THAT ... USE SOME Common Sense ... !!!

DON'T Try To Defend ...
On A ... FALSE PRETENSE ... !!!

AVOID THESE ... NEEDLESS ...

....... " Arguments " .......
