“Mad Talent” … Produced by Anthony Lowhar

So folks, time to go further into Virges’ World Vol. 2, with this tune that speaks on the arts, artists and just what can be defined as talent ….

Well, as the title of the track suggests, I now know that I definitely have …..

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So here we go folks, another joke of an election is about to reach fever pitch !

So, the apparently righteous warrior, being Jeremy Corbyn, a man who seems to be, about as stand up a guy as we’ve seen for a while, is up against the British Trump, ol’ BJ Johnson !

As I’ve said all along, I can’t see how a Corbyn win serves the world well, but hey, who knows, all I know is that he would be a very interesting PM.

However, what I also think is that, this Anti-Semitism situation, which seems to be the main thing that everybody is on his back about, could prove to be very important.

It would be foolish to think that Jewish support isn’t key for any PM or President, and, as they seem to be the ones with all the media power, and money, it’s gonna be interesting to see if this issue proves to be the stumbling block that ol’ JC can’t step over, or break !!!

I’ll quickly dismiss the Lib Dems’ and The REST, of having any chance of doing anything, other than cause the odd disturbance with a shock win, here of there.

So, BOJO is desperately seeking to solidify his position as PM, and then of course, to deliver Brexit !!!

This Brexit matter is also, another key factor in Labour having any hope of winning, as the referendum left them in the awkward position, of knowing that the majority of the British Public, disagrees with Jeremy, and quite a few labour MP’s.

So, this could also prove to be the bridge that Jeremy can’t cross with the British Public, being happy to follow, even if events of the last few years may have opened some minds to maybe, look at being part of the EU differently ….

Time will tell …….

On the other side of this fence is Nigel Farage, who, with a few others, has caused quite a stir, with party switches and constituency tactics, that could scupper Labour wins in marginal constituencies !

So, it seems reasonable to believe that Boris can win, especially with the type of Political Backstabbing, and shenanigans, that now rule the Political Spectrum, both in the UK and abroad, which of course leads me to the protracted, impeachment proceedings that seem to have Trump running scared, much like BJ, from interviews and basic questions, that the electorate should surely be entitled to have answers to !!!

Thus, i’ll look into a few other factors, without getting too much into this game of politricking, which could also result in yet another coalition government in the UK !!!

How about the prospect of that, Swinson, Corbyn and BJ, being forced to work together, now that would scare a number of political commentators and party members i’m sure !!!

I really do think though, having spoken to an English buddy of mine, who lives in London today, that the general public sentiment is that they are once again, stuck between a rock and a hard place, but, should remember that if the voting system is legitimate, and not rigged, that they have the final say, and should vote with their brains … !!!

NOT …. out of some sense of blind allegiance to nationalism, or ignorance, regarding the prospect of open borders, which would increase the numbers, who are the BIG Monster in the room, for the election, IMMIGRANTS and of course, Immigration ….

However, the electorate this time around, must look at the lack of transparency that is plaguing, not only BOJO, but issues within Corbyn’s party, that are suitably dismissed, or swept away, much like President Trump is trying to do with this impeachment process …..

It would be wise not to let these politicians blinker their thinking, because at the end of the day …

As this weeks poem relates and states ….

Considering their position on the world stage, why exactly, when it comes to answering basic questions … ?

Do …… ?

“Elite” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so we are in times where it’s clear that these, ” Men “, who are part of the …

” Elite ” …

… are not as squeaky clean as they have led people to believe, from royalty to presidencies to those who are …. or were wealthy, in the case of Jeffery Epstein !!!

So, Prince Andrew …

Tut Tut Tut … !!!!

Renowned playboy and stud of the current, Royal Crop, but, wait just a second, abuse of his position … ???

“ Letting The Team Down “, quotes, as if fraternising with the likes of Epstein, and young, possibly, UNDER AGE girls, who were being lined up for what would seem to be sexually driven liaisons !!!

Well as i’ve said, where are the feminist marches to Buckingham Palace, calling for his head, and the #MeToo movements, when they’re REALLY supposed to get their noses up in certain mens faces eh … ?!?

If companies and organisations that Prince Andrew once endorsed, or had alliances with, are cutting ties with him, why isn’t there more uproar huh … !?!

One has to wonder …. ???

…. Oh, because he’s royalty, or because he’s part of an elite club, where the likes of Trump, Boris and Benjamin Netanyahu are members !!!

It doesn’t seem like such a cool club to be in now though does it ?!?

However, there are some other things to consider here, like the women who surround, and even marry these men !

These elite guys have always got women around them, who don’t seem to have any knowledge, and, don’t seem to take any issue with the movements of these elite guys ….

Let’s check that for a sec ……

NO KNOWLEDGE of…. Ermmm REALLY ….. ?!!!?

Hmmm…..

Well, as a lot of these documentaries and movies are showing these days, it seems quite RIDICULOUS to believe that these wives and mistresses, have no clue about these men, other than when they’re sexing them, but hey, when you dig for gold, you get dirty don’t ya !!!

Thus, Netanyahu, and The Don, impeachment and corruption cases, lies and a plethora of ridiculous tales about who said what, and or, demanded what, or, who took what for a few favours that their position could avail, for everyone from, evidently, child abusers, to huge corporations, looking for a foot into countries for business purposes, like say, Jennifer Arcuri in Boris Johnson’s case, who isn’t such a happy little lady now is she … all of a sudden !!!

Why … ???

…. because she feels like she was treated like some, well, you know what, for a one night stand !!!

Whatever Luv’ … !!!

It’s quite a collective of incredibly shady, and, ignorant people !

Between the likes of Trump, Johnson and Netanyahu, who can possibly make an accurate assessment of their characters ?

However, racism, prejudice and abuses of power, would seem to be reasonable things to be suggesting that they have embraced, or, have at least been party to, much like Prince Andrew ….

Tut TUT TUT …. !!!!!

Royalty doing naughty things with women ….

Who’d of thunk it … ?!?

Well, if you check history, you might find that those in Royal Shoes, have been dealing in some rather, debauched behaviour, over the years, and in fact, that this very same behaviour is why they are now holding the positions they do, because of details they hold on families that might just tear down certain countries…

It’s all fun and games for the hierarchies of society, however, these recent allegations and stories of their behaviour, away from the limelight, has a few peeps looking a little bit closer at what is to be …

” Elite ” ….

So, here’s my poetic take on this word, and what it probably means, and has always meant to truly join those who claim to be ……

“Run Through My Mind” … Produced by Strat Carter

So folks, time just seems to be flying by right now, weeks swiftly moving into the next, almost as if time isn’t quite in sync, as per the 14 HOUR Power Cut that was island wide in Barbados this week, just CRAZY to think that in this day and age, that, back up generators aren’t functioning in a manner that prohibits an entire day, where essentially, nothing could be done ?!?

IMF money, obviously doesn’t stretch to power provision eh folks ….

Anyway, as this weeks track from Virges’ World 2 suggests, there are a few things running through my mind currently.

Certain news stories are just too crazy, to avoid my attention, like the one that suggested that a hospital drug mix up, created Werewolf symptoms of hair growth in babies in Spain … !!!

I mean drug mix up … SERIOUSLY, WTF is going on there !!!

I am current;y enjoying the Bumpy Johnson series with Forrest Whittaker taking on the role of …

” The Godfather of Harlem ” …..

…. and it shows why the mafia ties that existed back in Bumpys day, would still seem to be in full effect, from Sicily to New York, as recent Cosa’ Nostra’ arrests in Palermo, Italy, have shown that the mafia hasn’t just disappeared, in fact, it would seem that they are probably as strong as ever, when it comes to their international dealings, with property being confiscated by the FBI and Italian Police.

Properties that are as far a field as the Dominican Republic, New Jersey, Philly and New York, where the names, Gambino and Inzerillo, are still to be feared !

So, swiftly moving along, what about the death of pen and paper, for future examinations which will be technology driven ?

I have never been one who believes in technology being the ultimate tool for taking humanity forward, in fact, due to my embracing it for varying reasons, I truly believe that it will be the end of us all, if we continue to become so reliant on that, which we have created, that in the end, humans become obsolete !

Well, this is one very questionable step towards that eventuality, in my opinion, as tech run tests have already proven to be flawed, as information has been lost, pertaining to said examinations already !

We have so much going on these days, with impeachment news, election news, and, Prince Andrew news, oh, i’ll get to him and this sinister connection between Jeffrey Epstein and underage girls soon enough, but for now, i’ll end this post with the news of Mark D’arcy Smith having a banana with a bill on it, being sent to a Wetherspoons’ table he and a friend were drinking at, in Bromley, South East London, this week ?!!!?

So, in talking of tech, the order was apparently made by use of an app, that somehow, was made by a person who was clearly in the pub, saw the table number, and made the order ….

Hmmm, should be easy enough to find the persons involved right ???

Not according to Wetherspoons, who of course, having apologised, have now stated that it is outside of their control, what gets ordered and sent to customers….

Cop Out at all….

If they did nothing wrong, as they claim, no need to apologise right …

Well that, alongside of more Yeovil football fan arrests for racism against Haringey players, in a recent game, leads me back to this weeks piece ….

People wonder why racism is still such a hot topic for British Blacks, and black people in general, however, it should never be treated as a minor issue, in the minds of those not receiving it, because there are those of us, who, as the poem states in no uncertain terms, like Mr. Smith suggested, who know of British Scorn, due to our colour, and believe you me, we are not all able to just brush it off and get on with our lives….. !!!

So, here are a few other things that also ……

” Apocalyptic Times ” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as we approach the festive, people aren’t exactly showing, so much good will, from Ice Hockey Commentator, Don Cherry, who has been sacked due to making, ” YOU PEOPLE “, references, to those not supporting the poppy parades etcetera, for war vets, well, I must be one of, ” Those People “, who will no longer be bullied into going along with something that historically, wasn’t exactly undertaken for,

” My Peoples’ ” … benefit, yes I deal in humanity first now, but let’s not make that mistake of assessing the likes of Mr. Cherry, as holding even, remotely similar views, so as per the broadcaster …

CARRY YOUR ASS, Monsieur Cherry !!!

A sentiment, not unlike those recently sent to Bolivian Mayors and Politicians, who are losing power, hair and a great deal more, it seems, as political unrest rises in Bolivia, which leads me to, impeachment and the UK Election !

Pure madness and a lot of subtle, and NOT SO Subtle tricks, are being employed by President Trump, Farage and Boris !!!

Now there’s three stooges who would of been as good as Curly, Larry and Moe, with regard to their shenanigans !!!!!

Another school shooting in LA this week, I mean, seriously, when are gun laws gonna be tightened, because at this rate, the youngsters will be filling graves much faster than their elders, but, as a woman on question time in the UK, recently explained, rather vehemently, it ain’t supposed to go this way !!!

However, my post this week, looks more at the incredibly frequent occurrences of natural phenomena, that are now creating havoc with peoples’ lives, from the poor to the rich globally !!!

Even Lewis Hamilton, with his 200 plus flights a year, is suggesting that things desperately need to change !

Interesting indeed, coming from an F1 Racing Car Driver !?!

Fires blazing in Australia and California, flooding in England and Venice, a place renowned for it’s water ways being a great tourist attraction, well, not for a while now it would seem.

Meanwhile, where rain is needed, it doesn’t seem to be coming, parts of Africa and Asia, are needing rain for crop production, which seems to align itself to the recent, Euro Heatwave, which has now brought masses of rain to balance the books as it were.

However, as we are now seeing that, Greta Thunbergs’ thoughts on these matters, are proving to hold weight, all over the place !!!

Apocalyptic … ???

Well, not just yet, but as Ms. Thunberg hits the seas to continue her global appearances, one has to wonder where the next natural disaster will come from ???

There’s so much more of concern in our world right now, however, they do seem somewhat insignificant, in comparison to the idea of us actually facing, as this piece suggest ….

” I Use It Like ” … Produced by Strat Carter

Okay folks, as we approach the release of the, ” On The Virge ” album, it’s time to drop another tune from Virges’ World Vol. 2 ….

Everybody out there rhyming now, claiming that they nice and that they drop ish’ right ….

Well this is what ….

“Propaganda and Lies” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Peoples …..

So, what’s in the news currently eh ???

Well, Jacob Rees-Mogg apologising, for one, for claiming that common sense should of prevailed in the minds and actions of residents of the Grenfell Fire, when told by the fire brigade that they should remain inside the blaze, that, in the end took numerous lives !

Stormzy and countless others, are clearly upset by his comments !

Now, I hate to play the Devils Advocate, but, should common sense not have prevailed … ???

It’s the old classic of, do you follow what authority tells you, when you know better …. ???

I dunno, seems like a whole load of palaver, over nothing really.

I would of thought that there are BIGGER Heads to fry, who were actually involved in the purchase, and usage of the cladding that let the fire blaze so quickly, and more importantly, the likes of Theresa May and her cabinet, being held accountable, to the extent where they, firstly, lose all political privileges, and more importantly, their freedom, for essentially, sentencing these people to a fate that could of been avoided, by just doing the right thing in the first place, then Jacob’s comments would never have surfaced ….

It’s a tragedy YES, one that people should be EXTREMELY Angry about, I agree … !!!

…. but again, aim that anger at those who were directly responsible, not comments made subsequently, by politicians who clearly could care less about the poorer people in British Society.

The likes of Mr. Rees-Mogg, Farage and President Trump, are of a certain ilk, and they need to be treated with the same level of disdain, as they seem so happy to dish out !

Talking of The Don, this book, ” A Warning “, seems to be another vehicle, by which, attacks are being made, that are supposed to do what exactly, aid in this case, the expedition of his impeachment ?

Well, if you believe that, you’ll believe anything !

There are some interesting titbits in the book though, as in the suggestion by this ANONYMOUS Writer, that The Don in office, has proven to be erratic and amoral.

Amoral like Keith Vaz, who has received a 6 month suspension for offering to buy Cocaine, in what was supposed to be a party of sorts, with some guys who he was trying to get into bed !!!

He of course has now claimed to have had his drink spiked and to have developed mental issues since this took place, or, was that before ???

I mentioned previously that I had read about the movie, ” Official Secrets “, which tells the story of how George Bush and Tony Blair attempted to well, essentially force certain states, to agree to them invading Iraq, by illicit means. Well, as I shall be watching it later, it does make me wonder just how much resistance people really exhibit, when it comes to the shenanigans of these politicians.

Knee jerk reactions, long after the fact, are doing what exactly ?

It’s crazy to see the things going on in the political arena, that we see these days, as well as the reactions and responses of people who are in the media, etcetera,

These days they leave me scratching my head, as much as the politicians ?!?

I remember having a conversation with an older lady years ago in London, and she said that it wouldn’t be that long before the people of the world, would decide en masse, to refuse to embrace anything that comes out of politicians mouths, and that in the end, maybe just maybe, that the masses might finally turn around and just simply refuse to vote for any of them !

Now, for all the apparent anarchy, that this might cause, are we not heading in this direction now ?

There will always be those who buy into the voting process, but i’m with George Carlin on this voting nonsense, don’t complain when you partake in this process, only to find the likes of Jacob, Boris, Donald and the rest, yes the Corbyn’s too, not doing what you want them to !!!

As i’ve said before, how does a Corbyn / Trump meeting really go folks ?

I’d suggest, not so well, and with the likes of Diane Abbott, flanking his attacks on the Conservatives, well, i’d rather vote for Roland Rat, to be honest ….

Thus, in connecting to the issue of honesty, or the lack there of, in the political rhetoric that’s become verbal diarrhoea to most of us, I think it’s time to rewind a few rhymes about the nature of political discourse, and the pretty obvious fact, that, no matter what party or side that they choose to reside …..

…. that they all deal in ….

“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 ….
