“What You’ve Heard” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, things keep showing more and more signs of uncertainty …

In the UK, Brexit’ is proving to be, quite the stumbling block, even for the vehemently, Pro-Brexit’ PM, BJ Johnson !

It’s just a crazy scenario, one which surely needs to be finalised, once and for all, with haste and less votes, non-votes, and political quotes, that do not denote a vision that completes the saga, once and for all, like … SHARPISH !!!

I have to give a quick Star Wars mention, having just seen the last trailer for the upcoming, Rise of Skywalker, movie.

It’s heating up, and the uncertainty surrounding the fate of many characters, old and new, has many excited, and as usual, making ridiculous assumptions, as to what may or may not have come out of JJ Abrams mind, as a suitable ending to the, Mega Saga, that Star Wars has become !

Oh and, by the way, YES to the trailer, as ever JJ, great work man, very impressive … !!!

I am very much looking forward to seeing how the story gets tied together in this movie !!!

Talking of sagas needing to come to an end, well, Prime Minister Trudeau must be relieved to have retained power, after the attacks on his history, were brought to the fore in what was clearly a political war, that he has won, to be re-elected, even if, only by very minor margins !

The Chile situation is a new saga, with much drama in the streets and corridors of power, as has been the case with, El Chapo’s son, being taken into custody in Mexico !!!

It’s crazy out there in this world of ours, fa’ sure now folks, and, as if we don’t have enough issues, the climate change debate, rages on like wildfire !!!

Excuse the pun …. !!!

…. with protests garnering more and more attention, that has made the policing of these events, more and more contentious !!!

In the US, We have the apparent attempt to, ” Impeach The Don’, for his, questionable movements and requests, in ….

Hmmm ….

Telephone calls made, to coerce some collusion in digging dirt on the Bidens’.

I dunno bout y’all, but this is all becoming much of a muchness, when these people, who, one minute work together, and the next, apparently, can’t stand the sight, or, views of each other, claim to be investigating individuals, who are clearly above the law, like say, royalty … ???

I mean, does Prince Andrew NOT have to answer to those women, who have now suggested that he was party to some, shady movements with young women, when in the company of a certain, deceased, Jeffrey Epstein, who apparently had numerous ways to contact him !?!

So, you see my point, clearly nothing impeachable, in the Princes case, to worry about …..

….. but chargeable ….. ???

Well, you figure that one out, if we are to believe these women, of course … ???

Why aren’t the feminists, rushing to the Princes’ front door, with banners and placards, to have him hauled into a courtroom, or, creating a social media frenzy, to draw more attention to the Princes, alleged actions huh … ???

Stuff to think on, as is this incredible situation with Bulgaria being put in the dock, for something that …..

Shock HORROR ….. NOT.

…. is happening right in England’s back yard !!!

The Haringey Boys found out quickly enough, that Yeovil Fans, seemed to be, not so dis-similar, to these apparently, TERRIBLY Racist, Bulgarian Fans … ?!?

It’s that classic, British DOUBLE STANDARD Ish’, that really is quite astonishing, once again, coming to the fore !!!

I have to also say, to all these apparently, Liberal, and massively aware individuals, who are normally white, who keep telling me things, that they seem to feel compelled to ….

Like the apparent fact that ….

“It’s much worse in Europe and America, than it is in England !”

Y’all really need to shake the…..

DENIAL, out of your minds, and look a little further than, your comfort zones, and recognise that the issue of Racism in Britain, incredibly, STILL needs addressing … !?!

…. and that the legacy of their history of implementing racist practises and ideals, into others, shouldn’t be so swiftly ignored, as if Bulgarians, in this case, could EVER compare to Britain, in terms of the racist atrocities, that still wreak of white supremacism, in the minds of many who, hold POWER, in their, oh so TOLERANT, Great Britain …. ?!?

Y’all really need to smell the shit that you’re shovelling !!!

Anyway, moving on, because this is the way of things in this, Topsy Turvy world of ours folks ….

So, this weeks piece pokes a bit of fun at the Trumpster’, but also speaks on, this issue of Racism, and how it seems to work in truly RIDICULOUS Ways, in a lot of white peoples brains, who would be the first to say that … ” They Aren’t RACIST ! ”

Well, as the title of this weeks piece suggests, you might just want to, double check ……

“Jealousy” … Prod by Chris Peden

So, as we move onward, toward 2020.

It’s an interesting time to assess people, as jealousy seems to rule a great deal, in terms of how people deal with each other nowadays.

So, this piece, having been written a long time before I really got to see how this phenomena of jealousy, shows itself within creative circles, speaks on how jealousy, can really manifest itself in people, especially, sadly, in artists, whose insecurities can destroy the very creativity that they claim to cherish.

It’s a minefield of egos, insecurities, and bravado, which is why I wrote this piece, from the forthcoming, ” On The Virge” album.

So this track reflects on artists and artistry, as well as a few other things, that have clearly fed the increase of this thing within society.

“Revolutions of My Mind” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, as the craziness continues across the globe, it seems as though protesting is the current, hot trend.

Hong Kong protests have lead to live ammunition being shot at protestors, and the banning of wearing masks by protestors, who are now being charged for doing so.

Iraq protests have allegedly, left at least a hundred people dead, and 6000 more injured !!!

Anti-Brexit protests & Climate Change protests, continue to gather pace, as does the ignorant rhetoric that’s coming from leaders, like the current UK PM, Mr. BJ Johnson !!!

Another interesting protest, that hasn’t quite got the level of attention, that other protests are receiving, is the Maori protest against the celebration of Cooks landing in New Zealand !

As a man whose spent time in New Zealand, it’s an intriguing one, as I saw the value placed on Maori Culture, by the white immigrants who are now part of the country, however, the fact that an individual who caused so much, pain and disruption, to the indigenous peoples of this land, is still deemed to be worthy of celebration, says much for the fact that there are those who still see the negative impact of James Cooks landing, and will not just allow such things to be seen as acceptable, in celebrating New Zealand’s past.

This, of course, relates directly to the issue of racism, in todays world, so, will the England Football Team, actually walk off a field of play, if they get racist abuse in the next round of Euro Qualifiers ?

Talk is cheap, and actions, or protests, as it were, are what REALLY speak, or do they ???

…. in a time where the likes of Trump, and his cohorts, are facing protests of an impeachment type, that they seem quite happy to dismiss as nonsense, much like Boris Johnson, regarding his dealings, and, personal relationship with Jennifer Arcuri, and the dangers of having a no deal scenario, end Britain’s current relationship with the EU, one has to wonder what REAL Effect, these inquiries and stands, are having ???

There are a great many protest movements now, but these days i’m wondering, where they are leading us to, and what these movements are actually going to do ???

My protests are poems, so, this weeks piece, deals more with revolutions, as this seems to be the ultimate aim of all these protests.

However, the revolutions i’m dealing with here, are the types that are simply ….

“Voice” … Produced by Strat Carter

So, as we seem to have a lot of voices from all corners of this world, claiming that they deserve to be heard, I figure it’s as good a time as any, to show that I have a pretty good one to listen to ….

Mellifluous and Smooth, as is this weeks Start Carter Groove …..

It’s a cool one folks, unlike a lot of those voices making unnecessary noises these days !!!
