“Slam” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Well people, there are lots of things that relate to the word SLAM.

Spoken Word Poetry, before events were shutdown, due to this virus, for one, but I’ll get back to them, because what a week it’s already been for people being slammed !!!

So firstly, Supreme Court Member, Justice Ruth Ginsberg, aka RBG, has died, which has quickly resulted in President Trump being slammed for his wish to replace her, before the forthcoming election, especially as her apparent last wish, was to not be replaced before the next President is elected !

Subsequently, the President has once again, openly slammed Joe Biden, for various things, as well as the Chinese, for allowing the spread of this Corona Virus, at the UN General Assembly, which hasn’t actually been assembled at all, because of again, this virus.

A virus that has now slammed business doors, and others, shut, due to the rise and surge in virus infections, across most of Europe this week !

This in turn, has caused UK Health Minister, Matt Hancock, to be slammed by journalists and MP’s alike, over his seemingly, confusing, and nonsensical approach to providing testing for people in the UK, who now seem to be slamming the government for not ensuring that this, track and trace technology, has been effectively rolled out, rather than having people have to use postcodes, as far away as in Scotland, just to get a local test in say, LONDON !?!

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson is still being slammed for his wanton disregard for the political process, and the dishonouring of agreements made, that set how the Brexit deal, or possible, NO DEAL, can now be effected, as it’s getting close to the time for Brexit, to finally come to pass.

I also saw a very interesting documentary on the apparent, murder of SPC, Vanessa Guillen, RIP, where the army investigation team at the Fort Hood Training Base, has been slammed for, not only its investigation, but the manner in which her accused killer, Aaron Robinson, was allowed to escape when being interviewed, which then led to him committing suicide, before they were able to recapture him !

There seems to be an incredible amount of this type of thing happening right now, where politicians, leaders and people are literally being slammed, or damned, criticised, or whatever word you want to use, for various reasons.

Today, I found myself being slammed as being a man who has a hateful streak, with some sort of superiority complex, simply because of poetry i’ve written !

So, in a week which has shown the world to be having basic freedoms be, slammed back into lockdowns and curfews of sorts, all over the world, I think it’s a good time to share this piece of spoken word poetry, that will indeed, indicate that, maybe I do have issues with feeling creatively superior to others, in a field where this would seem to be, THE EXACT point of these Slam Competitions, being, for poets to prove just who is the superior wordsmith, which I actually see as being ridiculous, in trying to judge a persons written thoughts, objectively !

So, as this seems to be becoming a regular part of how people respond to decisions, or things that they don’t like ….

This is a poem that expresses my thoughts on these spoken word competitions, that are now called a poetry …..
