'Exception' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 19/8/2016

Ya Know I'm The... EXCEPTION ...
To A LOT of Rules... !!!!!

Like The... MISCONCEPTION...
That Blacks Are BAD DUDES... !!!

I CAN Be BAD But Would Rather Try...
To USE My Mind To Be A... " GOOD Guy "...
Who Writes Tight Rhymes And Flows Them NICE... !!!

WITHOUT... Exception... !!!

EVERY LINE That My Mind Finds...
Is MORE Than Just A JOKE Or CUSS... !!!
I Write The Stuff That GIVES Huff PUFF... !!!

UNLIKE These CHUMPS...
Who AREN'T Exceptions WORTH Retention... !!!

.......... GENERIC Sessions..........
Are NOT The Lessons I INVEST In... !!!!!

I INVEST In Thoughts That CAN'T Be Bought...
Because They're RAW And ROCK Weak Jaws... !!!

In FACT Weak MINDS When They Hear My Rhymes...
Tend To Take EXCEPTION To My Expression...
Because It QUESTIONS And Makes An IMPRESSION... !!!

When It... SHINES...
Because It Shines BRIGHT WITHOUT...... " Starlight "...... !!!!!!

It's EXCEPTIONAL Yes When I Write Poems...
Because of Their LENGTH And Lyrical DEPTH...

EXCEPTIONAL Scripts Are Things I FLIP...
Just Like Simone Biles Doing Gymnastics... !!!!!!!

You See Some of My Rhymes Take Things From Life...
And Through My Scriptures Paint.... CLEAR Pictures.... !!!

But STILL DON'T Figure...
In The World of Rap Figures...
Jiggas' Or... Wiggers'... !!!!!

Because Well.....
My Style's Are TOO Damned NICE...
For Corporate Types To TRY To BUY... !!!!!

Because I WON'T LIE Or SNIFF Cocaine To Get IN... " The Game "... !!!
Like THESE Lame Brains Who Have NO SHAME... !!!!!!

I'm An EXCEPTIONAL Thinker...
Who... DOESN'T Wear Blinkers... !!!

Or PULL On Triggers...

Cos' I AIN'T NO... Well...
Puss Hole' Like... TIGGER... !!!!!

I'm A BEAR Like... " Who "... ?
DEFINITELY NOT... " Pooh "... !!!

I'm MORE Like The One...
Who ROLLS With... " Boo Boo "... !!!!

EXCEPTIONALLY Cool...
EVEN When I CHOOSE To Act The FOOL... !!!

ANOTHER... Exception... !!!!!

Because I DON'T Let...
STUPIDITY RULE The Way I Move...
... And That's The TRUTH ... !!!!!

UNLESS My Mood Gets... DARK And Blue...

Which Means It's Time For You To RECOGNISE...
That... In My MANNER Is EXCEPTIONAL ANGER... !!!!!

So It's Time To................... Step Back......
If You See Me Get MAD... !!!

Just Like... " Mike Jack "...
You Should KNOW That I'm BAD...
When It Comes To... TRACKS... !!!

I Like EXCEPTIONAL Tracks...
With... EXCEPTIONAL Grooves... !!!!!!

NOT Those That CHART...
But Smell WORSE Than FART... !!!

YES I'm An... EXCEPTION...
When It Comes To My Art... !!!

Because of It's HEART That Beats REAL HARD.... !!!!!

My Verse Makes MARKS...
WITHOUT Hitting The Charts...
Cos' It's IN It's... OWN CLASS... !!!

So Now This Poem Has Reached It's End...

I'll RETURN To The Start...

There Are A LOT of Rules...
That DEFINE Crews And INDIVIDUALS...

But When It Comes To ...
Being A DUDE Whose Vibe Is COOL...
When It Comes To... CREATIVE Expression...

BELIEVE Me When I Say That...

I AM The...

.... " EXCEPTION ".... !!!!!

This poem is about: 
My family
