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

So guys what a hot few weeks it’s been eh ?

Wildfires, heatwaves, the world cup, and a variety of hot topics continually arising, that should be causing, at least the odd raised eyebrow, in terms of what is being revealed, or NOT, as the case may be.

So, this month’s little ditty will cover a few things, from last years Grenfell Fire, and the reaction to it, to the continual revelations of Hollywood abuses, and the reactions to them, that continue to heat up, as more and more female stars release information that will have a lot of producers and big movers, loosening their collars, due to the heat of allegations surfacing, and, resurfacing, from the past. Kathleen Turner being the latest to have certain people, looking over their shoulders, right about now.

As per usual, the Donald Trump show continues to simmer, until he gets his nose out of joint, over say, Lebron James, or NFL Players continuing to kneel, or, refusing to stand for the American Anthem before games. The issues of trade, and of course, his rather high profile meetings of recent, which should apparently, be cooling down tempers and the need for nuclear arms.

The Catholic Church, seemingly, abusing children just about everywhere they’ve been, with quite the level of protection, from members of their church to police not taking matters seriously, upon notification of child abuses, that have also been kept under the radar at some schools for decades, coming to light.

It’s definitely been a hot summer, but, not just due to the weather.

Even Tiger Woods has found his golf clubs hotting up, as he gets very close to returning to the major winners circle, at the PGA in St Louis.

The Zimbabwe election situation has caused tempers to hot up due to disputes over the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwas’ election win. South African land appropriation, and a number of other issues in the African Continent.

The Ben Stokes case is hotting up, as did his temper clearly, as the story seems to keep changing regarding his position in the argument that led to him, as he claims, protecting a couple of gay guys from facing abuse …..

Hmmmm, something doesn’t quite add up about that whole scenario, much like the issue of race, as another white nationalist rally is heading to Washington, whilst racist graffiti has been sprayed on a house in Rochdale, where a black family were excited about moving in, so, that debate is still hot for those who aren’t part of the fraternity of famous black folks, who are now not so keen to raise the issue because of the green in their pockets, that has them feeling comfortable.

Well, as this poem suggests, we all could do with a cooling down, or maybe an exhibition of more coolness, when some of these issues confront us.

It’s been a hot summer for sure, but, unlike rain, some of these other hot issues may require some other cures.

Anyway, take a listen and enjoy, and stay cool folks !!!

Bless Up

Connect The Dots … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People, well, in my world, time feels like it’s flying by !!!!

The season of … Apparent …

” GOOD WILL ” … is upon us folks …

So, for those who indulge, ENJOY !

However, for those less concerned with the whole, Christ Mas’ … Fest …

I’m gonna end this year by connecting a few dots in this poem,

However, before doing so,

Well DAMN, what a year eh folks ?!?

To be honest, so much has gone on, that I can’t recollect too much without sifting through my mind, which I am far too old and tired to do, but what I will say is that from Brexit’ to Trump, to Hollywood Abuses, Government Abuses, Sports Abuses, and basically, ABUSES coming to light from all kinds of places !!!!!

It’s actually nice to see people embrace this time to connect with others in hopefully, Warmer Ways … !!!!

I’ve made some interesting connections this year … Fa’ SURE … !!!!!

Some, that have been fruitful, and quite shocking in terms of whom I have connected with, and others that have been less fruitful, but, equally as important in terms of my personal development, and my ability to connect with the people I’d …. Like to be connected with, for the foreseeable at least.

However, disconnections have also occurred, that have shocked, disturbed and even angered me for sure !!!

Much like many of the more, Serious and i’d suggest, MORE IMPORTANT happenings, that have come to the fore in these last 12 months.

Sadly, these other matters cannot just be swept away, and amongst other global matters that seem to be disconnecting, more than, connecting people. This final piece of the year from me, touches on where we seem to be, disconnecting, instead of protecting the ideal of ….

Keeping the finite dots that we,
Human beings are, in this universe,

…….. CONNECTED ……..

Check It … and stay blessed for the festive and the next few, and stay Connected people …..

One Love.

The Virge.
