“Lack’ … A poem written by Big Virge 20/6/2006

2013 has shown me in so many ways how people are lacking in a great many things ….

Here are a few that I could clearly see, were gonna become more visible in people, some time ago ….

So, what do you … “LACK” … Huh … Motha Uckers !!! …………

Everybody lacks … something …
That’s a … Fact … !!!

So …
Let me ask you this … ?
What do … You Lack … ?

Do you lack …
” Common Sense ”
or …. Confidence … ???

or …
Do you lack what it takes … ?
to forsake what you gain …
from living … just for money …
like these … Corporate Heads … !!!

Well money …
” Certainly ” …. Pays …. !!!

But ….
Does not … ” Allay ” …
Unhappy Days … !!! …

Ask those … who take …
“Every Piece” … of the cake … !!!

If they say … Their Cash … !!!
Removes … Their Pain …
They’re being … Fake … !!!

Question …. ?
what they say … ?

If they lost their …
… ” Loved Ones ‘ …

Could their cash … Replace … ?
” Loved Ones ” … who’d placed …
Smiles on … Their face … !!! ? !!! …

The answer is … NO … !!!
and this … They Know … !!!

So …
Do you lack …
” Other things ” … ?
that … make you think …

” What is The Point !!?!! ”
of … Making Noise …
about the way …
we live … today …

Well …
that’s okay …
it’s been … that way …
since the … early days …
of … ” Shackled Slaves ! ” …

Many lack … the ability …
to face … ” The Truth ” … !!!

Do those … last words …
Apply … to you … !!?!! …

Well …
If they … DO … ?!?

You’re lacking in food …
You should … Consume … !!!

These days …
I Lack … ” Patience ” …
with those who are …
….. ” Blatant ” …..

” Ignorant Fools !!! ” …

Those I find …
with … ” Narrow Minds ” …
who choose to … move …
in the land … of the blind … !!!

Those now inclined …
to … Ignoring Signs … ?!?
that …. ” Indicate ” ….

………. ” New ” ………..
” Troubled Times ” … !!! …
for … “Our” …
” Human Kind ” … !!!

But … if we pressed …

“Click” ………..
Rewind …

I’m sure we’d find …
Many Things … ” Replicated ” …
Like …… ” Old Pastimes ” ……

Do you lack … ?
The Ability …
to want to … ” Backtrack ” … ?

Can I ask you …
” Freely ” … ?

Why are you … like that … ???

Afraid of what you’ll see … ??!??
or … what you’ll … FIND …
that’ll … EXPOSE … Lies …
“Cleverly” … disGuiSed …
to keep … The Truth …

hidden ……

….. From …..
” Enquiring Minds ? ” …

This seems to be …
… ” Planned ” … !?!

to … Ensure Most …
….. ” Lack ” …..

” The Ability ” …..

to deal with … FACTS …

Like …..
Why are women …
Soooo hard … to understand … ???

In the very beginning ….
They’re … HARD to ATTRACT … !!!!!

If ….
You’re a man …
who … HOLDS … Your Stance …
THAT … You give a damn …
” About ” … Their Needs …

while those who … Lack …
such ….. ” Courtesies ” …..
seem to get … Pussy …

Like …. ” Next one please !!! ”

Girls who … LACK …
any … Common Sense …
are those … I don’t want …
inside ….. My Bed ….. !!!!!!!!!!

But ….
Hell Yes … Yeah …

I’ll pass through theirs’ … !!!!!

Now ….
Hear me out girls …
Don’t take … Offence … !!!!!

But ….
Too Many … of you …
Pick The ….

“Wrong Damned Men ?!?”

Again and Again …..
Your Case … CLEARLY …
Has …. ” No Defence ” … !!!!!

These days …
There’s a …. LACK ….
of … ” Good ol’ … FUN … !!!

Especially with …
A … ” Good Woman ! ” …

….. ” Relationships ” …..
seem to end … So Quick … !!!

Before … ” Love’s Able ” …
to get a …. ” GRIP !!! ” ….
and have a chance to …

…….. ” Sit ” ………

at the … Dinner Table …
That’s … ” REALITY ” …
and is … ” No Fable ! ” …

Like …. Kane and Abel …

Things are … CLEARLY …
Quite …. ” Unstable ” …. !!!!!

Like … reception through …
Those … ” Dodgy Cables ! ‘ …

No … MTV …
or … Sky TV …

But …
Here’s the link …
So take … THIS IN … !!!

There’s now a … LACK …
of ….. ” RELIABILITY ” …..
in how …. People ….
Now Seem … to be … !!!!!

“I’ll call you tonight !”

“Cool, that’s just fine,
I should be home,
by, half past nine,
don’t let me down,
I don’t like to be clowned !!!”

“Trust me man,
I will ring you !!!”

” Haven’t heard from
….. THAT FOOL …..
for a whole week now …
if he calls me with …
A Poor excuse …
My mouth is gonna,
leave him … Schooled …
and make him … frown …
with the words … I Choose … !!! ”

I just can’t stand ….
when people …. LACK ….

….. ” Reliability ” ….. !!!!!!!!!!!

or … is it … Just Me … ?!?

Asking … TOO MUCH … !!!
to hope that …. Some ….

“Good Ones” … are left … !!!
who are …. ” Reliable ” ….
from … Start to End … !!!

and deal in …
” Honesty ” …

People … You TRULY ..
can call … Your Friends … !!!!!

Well ….
One thing … I Don’t Lack … !
is a will to … ” Express ” …
through poetry …. sent ….
to my …. Notepad …. !!! ….

So … now it’s time …
to end … This Rhyme …

About ….
Some Things ….

That … WE ALL …
…… ” Lack ” …… !!!!!

But ….
If you think ….

You DON”T … Lack Anything … ???

Let me just say this ….

You are … DREAMING … !!!!!!!!!

EVERYONE …
Lacks something ….

That’s just … FACT … !!!!!!!

So …..
Be HONEST … with yourself …

What Do … You … ?

…….. Lack …….. ???

“Behind Closed Gates”, A poem written by Big Virge 25/6/2013

Inspired by a BBC documentary about a gated community in Los Angeles, back in 2006 …..

From China … to …
Some … U.S. … states …
and … “CLEARLY NOW !” …
in the ….. U.K. …..

Many … choose to live …
Behind … ” Closed Gates ” …

But the word … “MANY” …
…… ” Exaggerates ” …… !!!!!!

The … ” WEALTHY FEW ! ” …
buy homes … with pools …
with cash that … ” BURNS ” … !!!!!

Like … “High Priced” … fuel …

and are now … in zones …
where they live … “Alone” …
to exist …. amongst ….

“Their Breed” … of … “CLONES” … !!!!!

FAKE This … !!!!!
FAKE That … !!!!!
and Yes …

” FAKE TANS ” … !!!

which ofcourse …
They … ” CLAIM ” …
……. ” Helps ” …….
Keep them … Sane … !!!

NO LONGER … !!!

Do they have to … face … !!!
Those …. who raISE …
Local …. Crime Rates …. !!!!!

….. ” Illegals ” …..
of a … Different Race … !!!

” Who ” …… They Claim ….. !!!!!

“Just come in,
and spread their, evil,
brand of sin !!!”

…. ” CLEARLY ” ….
The colour … of their skin … !!!

“Hey, come on now,
that line was foul !
We’re not racists !
We’ll let you in,
if you are rich !!!!!”

So … is this how …
it’s … ALWAYS BEEN … ?!?!?

or …. is this just …
” New Age ” … living … ???

where sell-outs … RUSH …
to join … ” Their Clubs ” …

Behind … Closed Gates … ?
when they’ve had enough …
of … living their lives …
around … ” Hoodlums ” …

Come on now man … !!!
You must be … Dumb … !!!

You talk of …
” ILLEGAL ” … Aliens … !!!?!!!

Well ….
Listen up son … !!!
cos’ you’ve …
Lost the plot … !!!!!

” The Hoodlums ” … live …
Next To ….. Your Lot ….. !!!!!

Young skinheads … who …
are …. Smoking Pot …. !!! ….
and … “Trying to Rap ?!?” …
Just Like … some blacks … ?!?

“So, how’d you feel about that !?!”

You Don’t Want … Immigrants … !!!!!!
or ….. so you say ….. ?!?

But …
Allow them in …
to … “Clean Your Place !!!”

Then have …
“The Cheek” … to pay them …
at the … ” Minimum Wage !!! ” …

“You People” … REALLY … !!!
are ….. ” TWO-FACED !!!!! ” …..

Live behind … ” Closed Gates ” …
and refuse to … ” Integrate ” …

Well, some would say …
that you’re … “Breeding” …

…….. HATE ……. ?? ! ??

or … Breeding … like …
” SICK ” … families …
“Nephews” … sleeping …
with …. “Aunties” ….. !!!!!!!!!!!

Live behind …..
” Closed Gates ” …..

” NO THANKS … OKAY !!! ”

A … Human Zoo …
is what … some … Choose … ?!?

Just to … PROVE …
They’re … BETTER THAN …

…… ” WHO ? ” …….

The … ” Rest of Us ” …

Well …..
Listen Up ….. !!!!!!

” Look who lives … NOW …
Just like …. ” MONKEYS ” …. !!!!!
in a … ” Gated Reserve ” … ???

I’m … a bit …
concerned … ?

What’s coming next …

” Swinging from trees !!!! ? !!!! ”

Listen up ….. ” CLOSELY ! ”

I’m … Happy to see … !!!
These … “Ignorant Freaks” …
kept away … from me … !!!!!
and in … ” Their Own ” …

…… ” Society ” …… !!!!!!!

… “Behind” …
” Closed Gates ” … !!!

or worse …
“Closed Doors” …
are … ” Separatists ” …
and that’s … FOR SURE … !!!

who keep their …
… ” Sickness ! ” …

” Locked Away !!! ”

Well Maybe … ???
That’s A … ” Better Way ” … ?
than having … THEM …
“Next to you” … Each Day … !?!

So …..
What do you say … ?

Are you …
One of … ” THEM ” … ?!?

Who’s got …
… “PROBLEMS” … !!?!!
with … ” Immigrants ” … ?

Well …..
I suggest …

” If ” …
That’s … The Case …
Buy yourself a home …
“Behind” … “Closed Gates” …

But let me ask you … ?

“THIS” … Question …

Who ….. Indulges …..
“These” … systems … ???
of letting in … Us Immigrants … !!!

Are they … NOT … ?
Your governments … !?!
and … YOUR … Rich Friends … !?!?!

to make …
Dollars and Cents …
and … Pounds and Pence …
and … Maybe Now … ???
Even …. Some Yen …. !?!?!?!?!

“Immigrants” …
are …. PEOPLE …. !!!!!!

NOT …. Aliens …. !!!! ? !!!!

If they break the rules …
Lock Them Up … That’s Cool … !!!!!

But …..
“Blaming Them” …
for … YOUR … ” Troubles ” … ?
Proves that you’re a … Tool … !!!
who is used … like a … FOOL … !!!!!
by …. ” Divisive Groups ” ….

Well ….
I’ve now …. had my say …

But ….
What do you say … ???

Do you see yourself living … ?

” Behind Closed Gates ? ”

So, What, or … WHO, would you … “Purge”, from your life … if you could uh ??? … written by Big Virge 24/6/2013

So, how’s things peoples’ …. ???

Good I hope … !!!

It’s hot as Fuk here in Bim, mosquitoes biting like the lil’ Mother Uckers … they are, I truly wish, if there were one thing in my locale I could … “Purge” … It would be those lil’ Fukkas … !!!!!

So, talking of things i’d like to expel, or, simply remove …. having recently been in the U.S., when, Ethan Hawke was doing his P.R. bit, for one of his new movies, “The Purge”, I was immediately intrigued by the idea …. (Spoilers, so, if you haven’t seen it yet, don’t read any further !)

…. of, a possible future ?

… where, for 12 Hours, once a year, people can legally, remove, destroy, damage or kill, whatever/whoever they want, having been sanctioned by government, to do so, in what essentially, many would suggest as being, “Stress Relief”, like say, going and punching a bag, rather than terrorize some fuck talking pish about what they would do to you, behind your back, not something I am unfamiliar with, sadly.

Ofcourse, Government & Those in Their Circle, are exempt from being targets, and presumably, have, the relevant protection from armed forces. (No Surprises There !!!).

So, as the movie progresses, which I see, has been heavily slated for plot flaws, etc, by quite a few people …..

….. it takes you through a variety of seemingly, innocuous occurrences, encompassing Hawke’s family and where they live, in a gated development for those, wealthy enough, to have top end security systems, that, he has sold to pretty much, the whole neighbourhood.

Thus, “The Purge”, begins at 7pm, now, without giving away every last detail, all i’m gonna say is, I was pleasantly surprised by the angles that, writer & director, James Demonaco, (The Negotiator), takes the film into, some dark corners of the Human Psyche, as well as into some very interesting societal disorders, of varying degrees.

Our lack of trust in each other, our constant battle with societal acceptance, from a class perspective, and by that, I mean, monetarily, the issues of how to allow our youth to grow, without stifling them, but, the fine line that, I definitely think, a lot of the younger parents of today, struggle with, as is evident in much youth behaviour, and finally, this need to be ready to shoot guns at just about anyone, who you see as a threat, or having them, as a means of protection from others.

Guns … Hmmmm … Really People … GUNS !!!!!

This film will, undoubtedly, scare the hell out of a lot of people, who’ll be playing like they ain’t scared, but, for anyone who can see beyond the conspiratorial theorists, this has, “Genuinely”, Scary Scenarios, being hypothetically seen, for a future which isn’t, so much of a future, as it is, a reflection on much that, Already Exists ….

The reason I say this is because such gated communities, ALREADY EXIST, the idea of ruthless, free for all killing, goes on already, in certain parts of many impoverished countries, and even in some, not so impoverished places, like say, Philadelphia … ???

… which, as i’ve said, has areas in the North of Philly, that seem to be, Notorious, for violent acts, sometimes, in broad daylight, that, even scare, Ex-residents from returning too frequently …. !!!!!!!

I’m sure that, many people will dismiss this movie as a ridiculous vision, of something that will NEVER happen …..

Well, I hope these people are right, because i’ve already felt that energy of being the stranger in town, who upon, merely trying to connect with certain people, has felt that whole, jealousy, and, angst-filled behaviour, from people who barely know me, and, have no idea what I have been through, to be where i’m now at ….

Sad, but, ABSOLUTELY TRUE !!!

Mother Fuckers be playing ” They Down “, wid your vibe and, respect, that you have earned your position, but then, somehow, that turns into ….

“Oh, you should give me pretty much everything you have, bar the shirt off your back, or, worse still, cha, me ah tek what I want from you, because it’s what you deserve ?!!!?

Hmmm … well, if that doesn’t sound familiar to you, cool, but for those who know these types of F’ing CUNTHOLES, I think, “The Purge”, is for you !

Much like, Bobcat Goldthwait’s, ” God Bless America “, it is a sad indictment of much that the U.S. of A …. represents, and has spread, via it’s media, music and of course, films like this, across the world.

… and I have to say, much like the battle rap thrown at Eminem by one of Papa Doc’s bwoys, at the end of the 8 Mile film, one of the most pleasing things about, ” The Purge “, for me, is,

” THE BLACK GUY DOESN”T DIE FIRST IN THIS MOVIE !!! “.

Props to all concerned with the concept and pretty much, the execution.

Don’t get tie up, it’s no, “Godfather, or, In The Heat of The Night”, type of film, but, in amongst all the violence and craziness, there are some incredibly, poignant and important messages and questions, that the film suggests we should be considering, or, should at least, have some concerns about …..

Dismiss if you wish, but, I suggest that, whether you are squeamish or not, this film will have something for you, so, take a chance on a movie that may just, “Better You”, and I do mean that !!!

…. but, if it doesn’t do that, it is likely to make you question your feelings about people and things within your life, that, deep down, you’re telling yourself, that you, NEED TO … “Purge’ ….

and on that note, as per the post title, if you could … “PURGE” …

Some things and/or people from your life … ???

Who and what would you … “Purge” …

and then, once you establish those things/people ….

Ask yourself … WHY … ???

…. and then ask yourself, whether you have the right, or, better still, what would actually be the best way to do it ???

Hopefully, it won’t involve killing, or, destruction of property, or worse, your very soul & spiritual integrity ….

Think about it people, because we all have things we need to … essentially …

“Purge”

Bless up ….

One Love.

A bit of … “Here”, leading to some of … “There” … Philly Diaries 1 … written by Big Virge 20/6/2013

Yes Yes folks ….

What’s good in your zone … ???

Well, in mine, down the south coast of Bim, surrounded by white folks, it ain’t a joke, as the rogues looking to get a quick pay off, are getting close !!!

Prior to leaving these shores recently, it had become evident that many south coast beach front properties were being robbed, even the Jamaican PM’s fam had a safe taken, apparently !!!

Now, the interesting part of that story is that, in speaking to a Jamaican buddy, who has a business here, recently, his reaction was most interesting when hearing about the robbery of Jamaican Dignitaries ….

His reaction was,

“Good, she and her family continue to leave people impoverished whilst living a lavish lifestyle, and then, have the cheek to claim to care about the poor people of Jamaica !!!”

Harsh right !!!?!!!

Well, upon reflection, one would need to assess any level of sympathy you have for people of such ilks, and those, within the hierarchies of society ……..

I do not advocate, robbing and teefing on any level, however, much like Chris Rock done say bout’ beating woman,

“I ain’t about to beat them, but, I will shake the shit out of a bitch, to wake her the fuck up !!!” …. (paraphrased of course) ….

So, in applying it to Barbados and the slow, but sure, rise in crime, who deserves to be robbed, or, better still, who can afford to be robbed uh people ???

I just picked up some food in the Lanterns Mall, and had a discussion with the girls, who were quick to say that, you know what, all these poor people, robbing who they think have money, well, as one of those who isn’t, poverty stricken, but, who still needs to get paid to maintain, I would say this to these young brothers :

“Fellas, is it me, or, is it those around me, who are affecting your ability to live as you’d like ?!?”

“Are your ideals of what you NEED, in perspective and logical ?!?”

….. come on guys, robbing your own is not cool, even if they may live a little differently, note, differently, NOT BETTER, material things, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT …… make a Happy Person !!!

Hard as it is to believe, dont let the big cars, trophy wives and husbands, fool you, behind closed doors, many of these people are some of the most unhappy, twisted, lost souls you will ever find, believe in that … !!!

….. just look at how some of these REALLY HIGH PROFILE actors die, not peacefully, in many cases.

Thus, a quick RIP to James Gandolfini !!!

I know i’m gonna get a WHAT !?!, from most people, but, never watched a full episode of The Sopranos, but, in anything i’ve seen with him, he was always very good, and by initial tributes, seemed to be a very cool dude offscreen !!!

R.I.P. JG

So, talking of cool people, and the US, here is my first instalment of my Philadelphia diaries …..

However, due to this news of men moving in my area, waving and pointing guns at workers, during the day, I have to start with a conversation I had with my new, Jamaican, U.S. buddy, “Reggae Surge”, from G-Town radio, who spoke on a situation he was part of, not so long ago in Jamaica, having been raised there, but, having spent a lengthy period away from the island.

He explained how he had returned to JA, for a holiday, and was in his old neighbourhood, so, had decided to go for a walk in his old district, late one night. He got into what would of been an old stomping ground, and said that he felt as if there was danger in the air, but, due to his being Jamaican, felt comfortable to carry on walking, but, having got to an old block of his, was quickly, in essence, scoped by a guy on a stoop, who, immediately spoke to him in a very aggressive tone, only for him to be shouted at by a man behind him, who knew Surge, from way back, who quickly explained to the man,

“Yow, he is so and so’s nephew/whatever, jus cool nah man, and let man roll !!!”.

Surge said he was told in no uncertain terms afterwards, “Don’t move so bredrin, Jamaica has changed, so, cool you cool, but, watch yourself !!!”.

Now, Jamaica seems to get a bad rep, I have yet to go, but, it does sound as though people need to recognise, from a global perspective, the dangers of being a … “Have Not”, in todays’ society of … ” Bling Blang Wrong !!! ”

I had a conversation in my hotel in Philly, with a couple from Connecticut, so, ofcourse, I brought up the subject of the Newton shootings with this elderly couple, now, it was clear that the husband was wary, but, had asked me for local info, thinking I was a local, but, when I started on the school shooting, his wife/partner, was quick to express her sadness and dismay at such a crazy happening, but, it always begs the question in my mind, it’s fine when we black folks have got it going on in our neighbourhoods, but, once it encroaches on white folks bliss-filled, neighbourhoods, it’s a SERIOUS matter, that needs to be addressed, with immediate effect !!!

Hmmmm, one has to hope that these days, less of these primitive attitudes exist, but, in reality, it would seem, as it has always done, as though the importance of safety for people, does not revolve around black communities.

Sad, but, I think, ultimately true.

In leaving this subject for now, I was explaining to the girls in Lanterns. that, the mindset of the people robbing, is seriously corrupted, when, as i’ve quoted before, men like RZA speak it loud and clear in interviews ….

Ask a F’ing Nigga to go rob some OTHER Niggas, they’re in the car before you, but ask them to go after Police, or, heaven forbid, Politicians, and those within the Corporate World, who hold the REAL MONEY, and who truly live, in my opinion, way beyond their needs, not only is there …. silence ……….

….. but, these same apparent, Bad Bwoy, Street Thugs and Killers, become very distant.

I remember reading a piece of my art, which speaks on Black on Black issues, to a young black man, who lived up the road from me in London, one day, only to hear,

“Very Good, but, you should be careful, speaking THAT STUFF !!!”

….. as if, trying to uplift the mindset of our people, was some kind of …

” Cardinal Sin !!! ”

I really hope, as i’ve just been told, that, when corrupt practises are being found to be true, in echelons, above and beyond the levels of crime that are clearly, disturbing more and more people now, that, the people of this island stand up and be counted, because the best way to stop a lot of this foolishness is to stand firm collectively, and ensure that these rogue criminals, be they street, or, more importantly, officials charged with peoples’ safety, that, they are challenged publicly/internationally, if needs be, a la the ongoing rape debacle of the two English Women, and with immediate effect !!!!!

Don’t get tie up people, I am not saying, try and play, ” Daddy Big Bollocks “, if an intruder comes into your home with weaponry, but, I hope you all, whether white, black, rich or poor, get the gist of what i’m saying !!!!!

Don’t wait until,

” It happens to you !!! “, to be concerned.

…. be concerned NOW, as you should always be & as i’ve said recently, people, stop with all this, divisive bullchit !!!

…and …

” Try Your Best Yes …
Your … VERY … BEST !!!
to make a … ” DIFFERENCE ”

So, to my struggling brothers & sisters ….

As my big brother, “Jabba”, from Jabsrocking, done show me …

“Who Jah Bless, No-one curse …
Why you want to steal … ?
from your Brother, ” FIRST ??? ”

Stop the Violence … !!!

&

Stop the Fukry … !!!!!!!!!!

Come on people …. !!!

One love & Bless up y’all …

“Fit In” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/09/2005

Do I … ” Fit In ? ”
Do You … ” Fit In ? ”

Is … ” Fitting In ” …
just … one more … ” Sin ” … ?

“Fit” …. into … “This” … !!!
“Fit” …. into … “That” … !!!

You may just fit … something …
that … may leave you ….

….. “Trapped” ….. !!!!!

We seem … So Obsessed … ?!?
with … being in zones …
surrounded by … ” Clones ” …

But …
Movies have proved …
it isn’t … All Bad …
to be … Stuck …

…. ” Home Alone ” …. !!!

I’ve looked at this … Subject …
in … Different … ways …
cos’ …. this is a subject
we need to … ” Inspect ” …

Are YOU … Not Happy … ?
with … ” WHO YOU ARE ? ” …

Would you prefer … ?
to … look like a star … ?!?

Have your face built like

……. “Britney” …….. ?

You must be on … “Crack” … !!!
and share pipes with …

……. “Whitney” …….. !!!!!

See …
People like … ” These ” …
aren’t worthy of … ” Pity ” … !?!
cos’ actions like these …
are … CLEARLY … Quite Needy … !!!

They want some … “Acceptance” …
for … “Breaking’ … Gods’ Blessings …

I’m NOT … Real Religious …
but people like these …

“NEED” … Biblical Lessons … !!!

You can’t … Replicate …
A strangers’ resemblance …!!!

Why would you … WANT TO … ?!?!?!?

It makes … little sense … ???

Surgeons … REALLY … do this …
to earn … ” Pounds and Pence !!! ”

The case that they … ” Build ” …
has … “little” … Defence … !!!

The body you’re … GIVEN …
is … UNIQUE … to you …
to change such a thing …
should now be … ” Forbidden ” …

But …
REMEMBER … folks …
This is … MY OPINION … !!!!!!

This need to … ” Fit In ” …
to a Model … “Size Ten” …
has left … ” Mental Scars ” …
on … Many Women … !!!!!!!

But ofcourse …. ” Who am I ?!? ”
to … tell YOU … what’s right … !?!

I’m offering clues …
through … simple insight …

So … DON’T … !!!
come to me …
with … tears in your eyes …
because your … ” 3rd Op ” …
has … ” Ruined Your Life !!! ”

I’d rather … ” Fit In ” …
to … FIT … ” Natural Thighs ”
whilst looking into …
A Womans’ … Third Eye …

or … YES … Better Still …
A … ” Great Pair of … Hips !!! ”
whilst … “Pressing” … gently …
against … ” Juicy Wet Lips ” … !!!

I’m … Flipping the script …
But these things … ” Fit In ” …
like … ” Holsters and Clips ” …

See ….
Why … Join a gang … ?
to fire … ” Bullets ??? ”

cos’ youth … who do this …
are being … ” Foolish ! ” …

These are the people …
Police … NEED TO … “Grip” …

Instead of … disappearing … ?
when … Hurricanes … ” Hit ” … !!!!!

Now … I want to … FIT …
into … One Simple Thing …

The arms of a … ” Lady ” …
who … Doesn’t … enlist …
A book … to explain …

” Her Relationships ?!?!? ”

They ALL … are …

….. ” UNIQUE ” …..

Yeah … kind of like … ” ME ”
cos’ something I … ” NEED !!! ” …
is a chance to be … ” FREE ” … !!!!!

As I would want …
My Lady … to be … !!!

“NOT” … with each man …
she … Happens to see … !!!

Or … with HER … body … !!!

I’d like her to keep
that thing … ” Just for me !!! ”

But …..
FREE … with her …

…. ” Thoughts ” …..

and … FREE … with her mind

NOT to … ” Fit In ” … !!! …
with those who are … “blind” …

cos’ … people like these
i’ve tended to find …
are people who want …
to leave you …

… ” In A Bind !!! ” …

GO … FIT IN …
with … THEM … !!!
and … see what you get … ?!?

You may see some things …
that … ” Confinement ” … Brings … !!!

You know … what I mean …
A Room where … The Key …
Ain’t something … You Keep … !!!

A Room … in a place …
where you … Cannot Sleep … !!!!!

” Fitting In ” … there …
leaves … Most People …

…… ” SCARED ” ….. !!!!!!!!!!

and many … Can’t Cope …
with … having to … ” Share ” …

So …..

” Fit ” … their neck into …
A Noose … Well Prepared …
before … Jumping Off …
A … ” Prison Owned ” … chair … !!!!!

But ….
being …. ” Unique ” ….
can make people … ” weak ”
because you get … treated …
as if … you’re a … ” FREAK ” … !!!

But who are … These people … ?
The ones who look … ” Chic ” … ?

They’re probably … those …
who don’t like … how I speak … !!!

Well ….
My Poetry …
Helps me … to feel … FREE … !!!!!

So … people like these …
can keep … judging me … !!!

cos’ I won’t … rescind … !!!
The chance to be … ME … !!!

and … don’t think it’s right …
to simply …

…. ” Fit In ” ….

Yup, it’s been a bit … but here’s why … written by Big Virge

Well peoples’, how’s y’all doing ?!?

Hanging in there …. as a man said to me yesterday ???

Well, keep on keeping on folks …..

The avenues and roads may seem closed, but, you never know, so, giving in, or, up, well, as the, “Biggest Hypocrite You Know”, i’m gone say, DON’T !!!!!

However, I know better than most what life throws at ya, that can make you feel like … REALLY ???

WTFook … !!!!!

As I sit here in Bim, with Supastition running in my eardrums, in the background, here is a young artist who seems to have been through it all, ups, downs, highs lows, incredible flows, lots of shows & yet, an early hiatus, which, essentially turned into a 3 year retirement, but, due to his love for what he does, he has returned, lyrically gunning down, everything from, fellow artists, to wannabee, hangers on, aka, human leeches, right down to the core of it all, The Industry Fukry !!!

Glad to hear him doing what he does best again, even if, as he rightly states, it’s availed in ways that don’t necessarily see him get rewarded for his talent and work ethic, monetarily.

On that note, lets’ get to why i’ve been absent for a while, well, on this site, it’s due to altercations and differences of opinion, that have this site in limbo, in terms of the variety of things from video to audio that were being availed prior to recent events.

This is due to inadequate service delivery, a not so, uncommon problem these days, from what i’m seeing and hearing, so, no surprises there, but, when money becomes involved, what is it with people now, claiming cash for chit they ain’t doing, and thinking that, F’ing weak apologies make up for a lack of basic communication, that would essentially, enable a level of patience to be shown, rather than the inevitable arguments and fukry that ensues ???

Fear huh ?!?

Fear of acceptance and acknowledgement of failings, or just the, “Dark Lord of The Sith”, getting in Mo’ Fuckers heads !!!!!

Jokes aside, it really isn’t funny when people keep on letting you down, clowning ya, and then hiding behind emails and texts, rather than use todays’ modern day devices, like Skype, so that eye to eye contact can at least be availed, when cussing is going on !!!!!

In-fucking credible, but, you know what, it would seem to be the current, “Stench in the Air”, that has more than a few, exposing their frailties, in so many ways, especially when they are confronted with … Actual Facts.

Cha ….

Well, let’s just say that, continuing down the path of gaining acknowledgment for creative endeavours, has it’ allure, but, it also has it’s level of disappointment, and frustration for SURE !!!!!

Well, that’s what freeing yourself up is about, taking breaks from all the tomfoolery of so-called, friends, girlfriends and relationships, be they business, or, personal …. to re-focus, balance yourself & find some semblance of equilibrium within yourself ….

Yeah I said it mo-fuckers .. ” Equilibrium ” …

It ain’t just a movie title !!!!!

So, on that note, I once again say, keep your heads up people, let the haters try, but, cuss down these Mo’ Fo’s, when you have to !!!!!

Then ….. “Walk Away”,

….. smile and laugh after these, poor excuses for people, but, these days, be warned, Mo’ Fo’s be getting very indignant about their, “Ignoramus Status”, so, the challenge of rising above, and keeping your ish moving, is getting tougher …..

Don’t doubt it !!!!!

Right.

….. now that is out of the way, I shall give you some Virge movements, that aid the ideal of what getting away can do, when dealing with some fresh faces, a fresh environment, and some stuff that says,

“Hey, stop your fukry, you ain’t ready for retiring !!!!!

Watch out for that post, coming shortly !!!!!

Bless up y’all and keep it moving …….

One.

Big V
