“Enough” … Performed & Written by Big Virge

Okay folks, so, quite the interesting few weeks it’s been, Barca putting the smack down on Liverpool, in no uncertain terms, only to feel The Anfield Massive, rock their world with an equally impressive 4-0 home victory, to send them through to another Champions’ League Final !!!

Incredible, but the job still has to be finished, so hopefully Jurgen can get his tactics right, and dismiss Spurs, but I wouldn’t like to put money on this one, two adventurous teams, with plenty of options, so, it’ll be an interesting final fa’ sure methinks !!!!!

Judd Trump doing the same to John Higgins, to win his first World Championship, congrats to him, he’s avoided becoming the new, Jimmy White, by making sure he got the BIG ONE, at least once.

However, away from sport, well of course, The Avengers Endgame Finale, has come and gone, but wow, what a response, and appropriate ending to a very lengthy series of 22 movies, that are all linked, in some way or t’other, to each another !

I think a very impressive job has been done by the cast, and Russo Brothers, of actually pulling it off.

However ……

UNLIKE The British Voting Public, the fans, of which I am one, have certainly NOT had enough, so, hope there will be more, well crafted, fantasy stuff to come from the Marvel Universe !!!

However, back to the world of politics and politicians doing everything, but, pleasing those who choose to embrace them, as the right folks to guide their respective nations to a life of peace, prosperity and happiness.

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

It’s clear from voting patterns, that many have had enough, from Britain to France, to Venezuela, where things really are pretty crazy !

Africans in South Africa are in the midst of more elections, although other parts of Africa are still seemingly, having issues with rigging, bully tactics, and violence, in the appointment of leaders.

The Israelis and Palestinians continue to prove that they haven’t yet, had enough of attacking one another, in more and more senseless acts of violence, and of course, The Trumpster is still Trumping any kind of conviction for his alleged, illicit practices, to gain his position of power, Mueller Report or NOT …. although it seems that one or two parts of the legal establishment, may have had enough of the Presidents efforts to block things coming to light, that perhaps need to be the subject of more judiciary hearings !

Indonesians also seem to have had enough of political wrangling, which has lead to alleged usage of live bullets on protestors, by the Indonesian forces, just CRAZY !!!

Even Drake is suggesting, ENOUGH with the disrespecting of each other by artists … Huh Hm ….

I think he’s in the wrong part of the music realm, to be making such requests ….

Brooks Koepka has definitely NOT, had enough of winning, and did a stellar job in retaining the PGA Championship, congratulations to him !

…. and of course, the ongoing racism debate in England, which is being seen as a problem, that, the powers that be, are not and have not, done enough to eradicate ….

Interestingly, the Brits have also been told, ENOUGH with your claim, to hold on to lands that should perhaps, be in other nations hands, thus, The Chago Islands, according to The UN, should go back to the Mauritians.

The word … ” Decolonisation ” … seems to be being thrown around, much to the concern of the Brits, and notable allies, in a landslide vote that saw 100 plus countries support Mauritius’s claim to the land, which has of course been used as a military base for British & American armed forces ….

I dunno about decolonisation, however, if this is as suggested by the Brits, a dangerous precedent, well, let the danger continue, if it’s purpose is to continue the empires demise, which does appear to be happening, even if, only in minimal ways, long may it continue in my view ….

…. which leads me back to Britain, and this incredible situation where, Prime Minister, Theresa May, is constantly being called out as a failure, who should now remove herself from office, resignations, and subtle positioning, by her apparent …

” Colleagues ” ….. Huh Hm …..
To … Usurp her position !!!

Yawn Yawn YAWN …

BORING ………………

However, the signs are there, that people are beginning to recognise the error of their ways, in supporting these ministers, who they are slowly, but surely, beginning to have …

Like This Weeks Poem Suggests, on various levels ….

ENOUGH of.

” The World is Fine ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as per the title of the post, let me just say that …

It REALLY IS Ya Know … !!!!!

I am not, and probably will never be a huge environmentalist, simply because of the ridiculous levels of hypocrisy that seem to follow those, claiming to be the biggest supporters of change, that would benefit this world that we live on.

I’m not even gonna waste time to start calling names, because there are far too many individuals, who are blatant hypocrites, and those who perhaps, are a little more careful in keeping their indiscretions hidden !

However, let’s just look at our good friends, the politicians who CLAIM to give a damn ……

UNTIL …..

Monetary factors begin to sway their visions of being,

” A TRUE Friend of The Earth ” …..

Who the people can believe in … !!!!!

Well, I think the first port of call should be their chauffeurs, and someone should ask them, just how environmentally friendly their employers are when it comes to their cars, and their fuel emissions, and that’s before we get to flights, jets. etcetera etcetera !!!

Pop Stars …. ?

Yeah RIGHT, like they aren’t professional liars and hypocrites, for the most part !!!

Then of course, The PROTESTORS, who stage these gatherings that, apparently, effect some degree of change in politicians, or ministers in the UK, who couldn’t manage to gain a double figure turn out for environmental debates, in parliament chambers, as was recently exposed in the UK … !?!

It’s all a lot of HOT AIR …. and that is NO PUN Folks !!!!!

It all looks good until you realise, that, like most things in this world, money dictates how things are dealt with, as has recently been shown in the Notre Dame situation !

It’s clear that the super rich have their specific causes that they REALLY Feel, are worthy of generous donations from them, which, if you apply it, in this case, could resolve INNUMERABLE Issues, linked to climate change …..

Well, couldn’t it …. ???

Just a thought folks, so, here’s my two cents on this subject, that caused such a stir in London recently, when the, Extinction Rebellion Demonstrations, which were in no small way, influenced by our younger generations, actually did disrupt how things functioned in London, well, for a few days eh … !!!

It’s back to the same ol same now then though, isn’t it … ?!?

So, not quite the same ol’ same from me, but a few thoughts on the environment, ecosystem, and the ecology that continues to damage, that which nurtures our very existence …. ?!?

Take a listen :

In A Week of Comebacks … written by Big Virge 18/4/2019

Yes Yes Folks, well, it’s been a few, but i’ve been busy doing my do, prepping a few jewels to now start sharing with you !

And I DO MEAN BUSY … !!!

And …..

This has a brought about a rather impressive level of creativity, from some of the older heads I have connected with, so, contrary to my own belief, all things being equal, there will be a couple of comeback tracks from Big Virge, which will be bringing me back to my TRUE Musical Preferences, of Soulful Music, with the odd snap of Boom Bap Hip Hop, and some other liks’ here and there, so, DON’T SLEEP, there is a LOT MORE music to come from Big Virge !

So, this connects me to the rather incredible comebacks of Tottenham, for one, Tut Tut Pep’, just make sure you continue to make those Mis-Steps, as it would be the comeback of all comebacks, for Liverpool to get to the place that has proven to be beyond them for far too long !

TOP SPOT in the Premiership Title Race, and they do look like a team, that, dare I say it, barring injuries or anything crazy happening, are a team worthy of completing what has been a fairly smooth season thus far, that has shown them to be resilient, and able to win the games that before, were literally proving to be the Banana Skins, denying them glory.

We shall soon see ………………..

Finally then, and by no means least, is the comeback of all, this past Sunday, when a certain, Eldrick ” TIGER ” Woods, returned to the Major Winners Golf Circle, with a literal, MASTERS’ Display, to ward off the young pups, who, for a while may have felt as if the game was theirs to take over.

Well fellas, THINK AGAIN … !!!

I have been, like many others, critical of Mr. Woods off course shenanigans, however, when it comes to his skills with clubs in hand, I could not have been more upset at the prospect of him never winning a major again, so, box ticked, props to ya Tiger … !!!

It was a truly, astonishing achievement, and may you go on and sneak past Mr. Nicklaus to become the indisputable, Greatest Golfer of All Time !!!!!

So, what do I return with … ???

Well, nothing quite as astounding as Tiger’s comeback, however, talking of astounding things, it would be remiss of me to not speak on Brexit’, and the crazy mess that Britain is proving itself to be becoming ….

Deadline Missed, Extensions and Cross Party Talks are supposed to do what exactly, make all this seem worthwhile ?

Well, Good Ol’ Theresa is soldiering on, I dunno bout comeback, but, there’s been a whole lot of Backtracking and Backstabbing going on, so it’s time for me to take a few pot shots at another issue that seems to have conveniently, stopped being so regularly spoken about, that being, the Grenfell Fire, and the farcical leadership, that no-one seems to be able to get rid off, like a bad case of well, something that ….

You REALLY Could Do WITHOUT … !!!

So folks, here we go, a little poetic flow from Big Virge, for the week, with MUCH More to come ….

BELIEVE ME … !!!!!

But for now, i’ll leave you with some Big Virge ….

“Don’t Get Carried Away !” … A Poem written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks,

All the best for the coming 12 month cycle !

It certainly looks like it could be a rough one, especially with, what increasing looks like a Hard Brexit, or, a NO Deal Brexit, coming the worlds way !

I think the Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe, has hit the nail on the head this week, when saying that the either, or scenarios, are not good looks for the rest of us !

Crazy price hikes, to varying degrees, if trade embargoes become a bigger issue than they already look like becoming !

Also, if the free movement of people is stifled, due to ridiculous attitudes towards sovereignty, and, border controls, then what happens ????

Well, apart from the obvious rise in nationalism, and right wing thinking, how does that translate into how services are run, and how the general governance of the country shifts, because it would clearly have to …..

It seems pretty clear now, that whatever governance comes, it’s gonna get testy, and cause further problems, when government policy could have resolved this a long time ago, by being stricter with regard to immigration laws, and I don’t mean the Windrush’ type of thinking and basically, racist policies !

I mean the employment of a system that meant that the actual Government Policy on it, made it clear, and more importantly, unable for THEM to make these laws, in order for THEM to benefit from cheap labour, that works well for their own purposes, ministers who want cleaners, nannies, gardeners, etcetera ….. Who would essentially be their, ” Modern Slaves ” !

Meanwhile, placing increased stress on those whose livelihoods, subsequently become pressured, due to the sheer volume of people trying to, not only, sneak into the country, but to then, also get work, which in turn, creates angst and the type of attitudes that lead to the result of the referendum on staying in Europe in the first place !!!

It’s such a mess, that it’s become, as some politicians are now saying, a national embarrassment !!!

Meantime, MP’s across parties are shouting about Theresa Mays’ lack of good judgement, and an inability to recognise that she cannot deliver what the people want, as if the rest of them could … when a 52/48 split was the result ???

Can’t please all the people, ALL The Time right ???

… which leads me to my first piece of the year, because it’s pretty clear to anyone looking on now, that the British Political System is BROKEN, and that, much like America, it now finds itself being scrutinised, and criticised, rather too frequently now, by it’s voters, because they neither have faith in the leadership, or the opposition, as per the impasse and shutdown of Americas’ Government over, ” THE WALL “, and No i’m NOT talking about the Pink Floyd Tune !!!!

So, whilst Theresa takes liks’ from basically, ALL SIDES currently !!!

Jeremy Corbyn is making, NO CONFIDENCE calls, and all sorts, to apparently get a general election ASAP !

However, one has to wonder if he did gain power, how that would play out in a world where Britains’, apparently, ONLY … ” Special Relationship “, is with America !!!

So, how’d y’all think Mr. Corbyn and The Trumpster’ would get along eh, and what THAT would mean for both economies and national relations …. ???

I don’t think it would be pretty, so, I wrote this piece a while ago, after local election results had people all stoked about what Jeremy could bring to the political table of fables in the United Kingdom …..

… and I have to say that a lot of people got, CARRIED AWAY, when perhaps they should of been more prudent ….

So, this month’s reflection of the current, Political Debacle that is currently running Britain, is simply called ….

DON’T Get Carried Away … !!!!!

and Those are SERIOUS Words relating to the SERIOUS Times that I believe 2K19 will provide …..

Take time and use your minds folks, because this Brexit’ thing really ISN’T a joke, and the effects of whatever happens will most definitely have effects across the globe !!!

“Calm” … Prod by Chris Peden

So folks, as the release of the EP approaches, here’s my Favourite track of the four to be initially released from the, On The Virge Album, which will follow in 2019

In times where tensions are running pretty high, politically, socially and in peoples’ general attitudes to one another, this is pertinent subject to present artistically.

Territory issues, Personal and otherwise !
Certain vibes need to just ease down………..

So, as the track says, i’d rather see more of this, than all the other Pish’ going on right about now !!!

So, check it out …..
and remember to …. KEEP YOUR ….

“The Intellect” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay Folks, so, hope all is well with ya !

These days, with this OVERLOAD of news, fake and true, it’s becoming very difficult to stay focussed on current events, because there really is so much going on !!!

Suffice to say, my observations remain as they’ve always been, too much talk from political whatevers’, and the subsequent ignorance, and insanity, that now seems to ensue from these individuals words, in those who choose to embrace ideals that continue to prove that the idea of voting for leaders to run, COMPLETELY CORRUPTED Systems, is proving to be a less than a shrewd endeavour.

Oh and before anyone gets on their high horse about options… ???

Well, as many are saying now, who really knows what the repercussions may be from embracing outside help for, internal problems !?!

The economic system is broken, and may well get much worse, if this Brexit’ issue causes the chaos that many seem to now be BELIEVING to be likely,

Who THE FUCK KNOWS … ?!?

However, what many of us, DO KNOW NOW, is that for all the talk of positive economic shifts, who exactly now is claiming that ???

Huh … ?
… are you able to say that nothing is a problem, financially now ?

Well, if you can, can you let the rest of us in on your secret then ???

…. because it seems as though the squeeze is on for many currently, from a financial perspective, and that common sense is beginning to reign in brains, when it comes to how they maintain themselves, and more importantly, their children future.

It’s a tough time across the globe, conflict brewing in Ukraine, Wild Fires washing away the Rich Folks home in of all places, a place named … ” PARADISE ” … !!!

Donald is just … Being DONALD … !!!

and Police are now taking FLYING KICKS in the streets from the youth, before we get to the usual number of shootings, that are now those of Legally Armed Blacks, and of course the MISTAKEN identity ish’, as well as banks calling the Po Po on Rap Millionaires for them to be accosted by their own BIG RIDES in the car park … !?!

Just CRAZINESS as ever, so maybe people could just TRY to show a lil’ COMMON SENSE, before, as per a recent incident in Barbados, picking a fight with the WRONG GUY !!!!!!

So, this month’s offering from me deals in using and BETTER Still, RESPECTING …

The Intellect !!!!

So, take a listen and ….
Come on folks, slow ya roll, and keep your heads out there yeah !
Blessings and Guidance to One and ALL …..

“Punch” … Produced by Chris Peden

So folks, onto the third track from the soon to be released, Living On The Virge EP.

The fact that many people these days, are attempting to punch above their weight class, in no small part, inspired this set of words, that have now had some, rather crazy Revvvvveeerrrrrbbbb added, amongst other things, to make this track …..

Thinking about the apparent, upcoming, ” Big Fights “, in the Heavyweight Division, and then thinking of the Great Fighters mentioned in this track, kinda affirms my belief, that, things just ain’t as good as they used to be …..

So, as said, CRAZY as the music is, the lyrics are far from being so …..

So, put this on blast, and reminisce with me as I associate this business of lyricism, with some great fighters from the past……

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

“Mad Talent” … Prod by Anthony Lowhar

Yes Yes People …..

Keeping it moving with another track from Virges World Vol. 2.

This one is my take on the abundance of CRAP that has infiltrated the creative realm of music, and more importantly, the lyricism that makes Great Music …. GREATER, by saying things that have something more to offer people, than the nonsensical mumblers and others, who seem quite happy to desecrate artistry, for a quick fix of money, pussy, or notoriety.

Of course things move on, but as I have heard a couple of well known musicians, recently tell politicians, if, from a societal perspective, we seem to be regressing, I wonder how much of this is due to the music that is now being fed to young people …..

An interesting question which this tune addresses in no small way.

Thanks to Anthony L… on production …..

This piece here, is INDEED FILLED with …

… ” Mad Talent ” … !!!!!!

” Balance ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Folks, so what’s been occurring, or should that be RECURRING !?!

Brexit’ … !!!!!

Trump Administration resignations, and of course, allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards women and children, from charities like Oxfam, to the likes of Bill Cosby, who the system, amongst a plethora of others, have finally collared, for his indiscretions against at least one of his many accusers.

The other news that seems to be a recurrent thing of recent times, is the volume of natural phenomena, wreaking havoc across the globe !

There has been loss of life in quite a few places, as a result of Typhoons, Hurricanes and flooding, here, there and pretty much everywhere, from here in Barbados, where the south coast, recently took a pounding, to mudslides in Uganda, that have taken at least 40 lives !

Then, we of course have the Florida situation, where Hurricane Michael did it’s thing, ripping through Mexico beach, and Panama City, leaving at least 30 dead, and a considerable amount still unaccounted for !

Indonesia too, taking a literal pounding from a Tsunami and Earthquake that has sadly taken the lives of many children, and hundreds of people. Mass burials and a recovery that is proving to be very difficult, due to poor levels of communication availability, and issues with aid getting to those it needs to reach, very sad and difficult times for the people of Indonesia !

Hurricane Leslie has managed to cause flooding in Portugal, and Spain, and even Wales has been flooded, due to Storm Callum !

It’s crazy to see so much imbalance in the world, nature is one thing, but when people are being accused, left right and centre, of everything from harassment to rape …

Without CLEAR Proof …

One has to wonder where the balance is, in this world now.

It’s a crazy time, but hey, if you’re not falling victim to any of these things, you’re okay right, well, i’d rather see less of these issues, and more balance in peoples assessment of things, especially, all this apparent misogyny, and abuse of the ladies.

I mean, now Cristiano Renaldo is being accused too, I guess the #MeToo Movement may have an alternate strain soon, where men are saying, well damnit, I’ve been accused too !!!!!

Whatever happened to Kevin Spacey eh ???

Isn’t Jail somewhere that he should face, instead of being supported by the likes of Dame Judi Dench ?!?

… and how has Brett Kavanaugh managed to get to be on the Supreme Court in the US, even with the same type of accusations as Bill and numerous others uh … ?!?

The scales don’t seem to be so balanced when it comes to President Trump and his cronies eh … ???

The President can get away with calling poor ol’ Stormy D, ” Horseface ” … having won the lawsuit she filed against him for defamation ???

She may have to balance herself on her back, just a bit more, to pay the Presidents legal expenses !!!

My point being, that it truly seems to be a world that is finding more ways to imbalance itself, than to find some balance that enables us to all be clear on what’s okay or not, when it comes to the realms of what we say, and, how we say things to each other.

Truly CRAZY, so I think this month, i’ll share some views on Balance, or the lack thereof, in people these days …..

So, my last words for this post are simply these …

STAY BALANCED Folks …. before you sink your boat !!!
