” 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

Virge

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.

“Syndromes”… A Poem written by Big Virge 25/10/2013

Well,with all that’s going down in Virginia, and other places currently, this would seem to fit the bill for a lot of idiotic people sadly ……

Get out of it, because………

Ya know ….
” Syndromes ” … roam …………….

Through phones and homes
Like … ” Twilight Zones ” …
have … ” Darker Tones ” …

Tones that … LACK …
” Balance ” … that stands …
next to … ” The Truth ” …

Instead … most choose …
Syndromes … that … ” Prove ” …

How Many … play tunes …
that … Don’t Sound … COOL … !!!

Condescending … quotes …
that HIT … ” Dud Notes ” … !!!

because they … Play Out …
of … ” Ignorant ” … mouths … !!!
whose views are … “Bound” …
by …. ” Colonial Grounds ” …. !!!!!

“Those” … that see …
White Views … as … CLEAN … !!!
and having …. ” Sheens ” ….
of … ” Positive “… Dreams ….

While … Darker voices …
are NOT … Anointed … !!!
in …. ” CEREMONIES ” …. !!!!!

because they are seen ….
as being … “Unclean” … !!! …
” NEGATIVE ” … and … Mean … ?!?

The Type that … NEED … !!!
to be … Put to … “sleep” …

Until someone … white’s …
Inclined to …. ” Recognise ” ….
the type of … “Insights” …
of say … ” Rastafari ” …

Without …weed in ………………………………………. sight … ???

Coke takers … are … FINE … !?!
because …. ” Their Lines ” ….
are the shade … THEY LIKE … !!!!!
NOT Dark … but … LIGHT …

In Fact you … find …
it’s alright for … THEM … !!!
To Gain Fame … and … Express …
as if … ” Sniffing ” … DEFINES …
an Inspired Mind …. !!! ??? !!!

These days … I See …
and hear … ” Pretty Speak ” …
from … ” Mostly ” … white peeps …

who seem to … BELIEVE …
that … ” POSITIVITY ” …
and …. ” UNITY ” ….
are the best things for ….
…. ” HUMANITY ” …. !!!!!

when they live … ” Up the street ”
from … ” impoverished ” … peeps …
Who … They’d rather … “Keep” …
AWAY FROM ……………………………………… ” Their Breed ” …. !?!?!

“But, I’m alright,
cos’ i’m not like them !!!!!”

is the … ” Usual line ” … !!!

as if … THEY … are PHLEGM … !!!!!
and just cause … ” Problems ” …

” Third World ” … Heads …
who … NEED TO … ” Affect ” …

A Change of … ” ATTITUDE ” … !!!!!

INDEED … Some Do … !!!!!

But … Historical Moves …
Some Whites … have used …
were put … in place …
to … IMPRINT … in brains …

That …
” They are ” … SUPERIOR … !!!!!

while ” The rest ” …
are ….. INFERIOR ….. !!!!!!!!

I hear it today …
in comments … now made …

That prove … HOW DEEP …
… ” Colonial Themes ” …
run through … the minds …
of … ” Too Many Peeps ” … !!!

ALL … Colour types … !!!!!

seem … HAPPY to … LIE … !?!
or … NOT TO … ” Think ” …?!?
about … ” The Things ” …
that they KNOW

are …

….. ” RACIST ” …. !!!!!!!!!

Like … ” Playing Tricks ” …
or … ” Running Jokes ” …
as if .. ” Chain Links ” …
have … now been … BROKE …

It seems as though …
” Historical ” … notes …
have been … ERASED …
from … ” Certain Brains ” … !!!!!

But …..
NOT IN … MINE … !!!!!!

I Don’t … Carry CHIPS … !!!

Nope …
My shoulders are … FINE … !!!!!
just like …. ” My Mind ” ….

STRONG and … Inclined …
to …. NEVER Deny ….. !!!!!

The skin they live in … !!!!!

Dark and … ” Tanned ” …
like slaves that … RAN … !!!!!

Well ……..
I Ain’t … THAT MAN … !!!!!!

But … descend from … clans …
” Without ” … Ku Klux … hands …
and … Hoods to … Match ….

What’s up with … THAT … ?!!!?

Did they just … ” Disappear ” … ?!?
and are now … NOT HERE … !!!!!

Too many … I FEAR … !!!!!
Have been … ” Well Steered ” …
to believe … ” The Veneer ” …

That … Powerful Racists …
are … NOT IN … ” High Places ” … ?!?

because of …. OBAMA …. ?!!!?

They … NEED TO LOOK …
…. HARDER …. !!!!!!!!

and STOP … Running Talk …
That Betrays … “Racist Thoughts” … !!!!!
when blacks … Don’t Retract …
but speak … ” Quoting Facts ” … !!!!!!

About the … ” Syndromes ” …
where …Racism Roams … !!! …

because of the … ” Past “…
that leaves their cards …

…. MARKED …. !!!!!!

From Europe to … Asia …

” Racists ” …
STILL HOLD … Favour … !!!
because of the … ” Paper ” …
” They use ” …. to buy ….
….. TRAITORS ….. !!!!!!!!

‘” Traitors ” ….

Who …. ” Sold Out ” ….
Black People … !!! …
Don’t Doubt … !!!!!!! …

Africa … has them …
These things … I Accept … !!!!!

while … Many Blacks … DON’T … !?!
So … have the … ” Syndrome ” …

Just like … These … ” White Folks ”
who make … ” Stupid Quotes ” … !!!!!
when they … CLEARLY KNOW …
That … Racism Roams …
inside of … ” Their Homes ” ……………………
and …”In Those” … who …

…… DENY …… ?!?

What Lies in … ” Their Files ” … !!!

The Legacy of …
Their Past … History …

which … Still Runs … ToODAY … !!!!!
in … TOO MANY … Brains … !!!!!!!

Racists … have got … CLEVER … !!!
and … Operate … BETTER … !!! …
because their … ” Defence ” …
is Now like … ” Mayweathers’ ” …

” WE’RE IN IT TOGETHER !!!!! ” …

So …..
If that’s the case … ???

Where is this … ” Third World ” … ?!?
They Claim’s … a … ” DISGRACE ” … !!!!!
But … buy places to … STAY … ?!?!?

I’m a … ” Little Concerned ” … !!!
at … some quotes …
White Folks make …

Who then get … IRATE …
when they … hear a … Black Man …
who now … OVERSPENDS … !!!!!!

and … ” Reminds Them ” … of Blots …
They hold … from the … ” past ” …
that STILL … ” HAVEN’T STOPPED ” … !!!
in the …. ” Whitest of Hearts ” … !!!!!

They’re quick to … ” Now Say ” …
that … ” They Face Racist Ways !!!!! ” …

If they do … ?!?

Where … TODAY … ???
are … white people … BEATEN …
and … HUNG UP like … ” Slaves ” … ?!?!?

I guess it’s … ” Such Quotes ” …

When it comes to … ” The People ” …
whose thoughts are … “Controlled” …

and caught in …
what is known …
as this …

A …

…… ” Syndrome ” …….

“Point The Finger” … Written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Yes Yes People !!!

So, what’s going on in your world right now ?

Well, having just watched a very interesting movie about Botswanas’ not so distant history, of race driven shenanigans, that included, quite a bit of finger pointing by the British & South African Governments, ” A United Kingdom “, is a film that serves as a great reminder of the danger of pointing fingers, without justification, especially when yours are clearly, NOT SO CLEAN …. !!!!!!!

Fast forward to today, and there’s so much to think on these days, that connect to …..

” Fingers Being Pointed ” …..

…. that has led to much that we see in the world today.

Especially the modern political landscape of today, as pressures increase, safety concerns continue to disturb, from Migrants apparently, causing problems to Italy’s Southern Coastlines, to Brexit’ talks continuing to apparently, falter ….

…. and talking of faltering ….

NOT, that it was a failure, but sadly, it doesn’t look as though we’ll get to see Mr. Usain Bolt, pointing his arms and fingers to the air in celebration of a major championship 100 metre victory again ….

Ah well, such is life, but I have to quickly give props to this legendary athlete, for all his achievements on the track, and hopefully now, what he should translate into an, off the track legacy, that will not only help Jamaica, in multiple ways, but also, young athletes all over the world, to be inspired to achieve, something even comparable to the, ” Lightning Mans’ “, achievements.

Well done Usain, great career man !!!

However, back to this idea of pointing fingers, well, The Trumpster’ is hiring and firing as quickly as he can point his fingers clearly, Korea are pointing fingers at the US, as are Russia now, and Venezuela and Brazil, seem to have a lot of pointing going on, of much more than fingers sadly ….

and Of Course, one cannot forget the Grenfell Tower Blaze survivors, who are also pointing fingers at the UK Government and wanting, not only answers, but a place to lay their heads, after what now seems to be accepted as Corporate Manslaughter, so, I wonder whether judges will have the balls to point some MP’s to Jail, with no chance of getting Bail, or, a …

” Get Out of jail Free ” … card … !?!

Unlikely …… !!!

… as it seems to be unlikely that Barbadians will do anything more than, walk and talk about, how tight things now are in this island paradise, because of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, pointing to who knows what, to ensure his legacy of governance is not forgotten, for quite some time …..

So, for this month, as there does seem to be a lot of this going on, right about now ……

Some verse worth pondering before you join the brigades doing it ……

I suggest you check YOURSELF, before thinking you can do it …..

” It’s Incredible ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well Well peoples’ …..

Incredible times since my last post ….. !!!!!

Too many things going on, to mention any particular one event, as being THAT Incredible, compared to the next, however, just a few things that did catch my attention ….

Bill Maher running some, ” House Nigger “, talk, as a JOKE of course … on US TV.

Yup… Pretty Incredible …
SMH … !!!!!!

Then, Ice Cube, being the one to chastise and seemingly … EDUCATE him, about it’s usage by white folks ….

Just as Incredible …

Congressman being shot at in the US, while playing Baseball at a Park …

Yup… Pretty Incredible …

The shooter, being some rather disgruntled, old fella, ending up dead before any questions could be asked of him…..

Not quite so Incredible, but hey … it’s America so ….

Got to mention, Pakistan winning the ICC Champions Trophy, in England, having defeated the same, apparent favourites …. LOL ….

Err NOT … on their way, and actually beating the best one day side, India, in the final … Congrats to them ….

Incredible achievement …. !!!!!

Anyway, moving on, Johnny Depp running, Kill The Trumpster’ talk … !!!

Well, on the basis of recent reports about his behaviour towards, ex wife, Amber Heard, and his, allegedly being, a rather unstable and abusive character when he’s ready ….

Not so Incredible again, but hey, interesting, nonetheless ….

Captain Jack may in actual fact be … QUITE MAD …. !!!!!

Talking of flicks, Wonder Woman’s big screen arrival, and dominance ….

Well, having seen it in Grenada in an ICE BOX of a Cinema !!!!!
(Now, HOT, YES it may be, but, ease back on the air con nuh’ man ! Film me ah try fee watch, NOT … catch cold doing it 2 rahted’ … LOL … !!!!!)

Well, all I can say is, Whoo Rasshole WOO, for the Feminists …. !?!

Yeah, some reasonable action, but seriously, yet another hero, I mean…

” Heroine ” of course, Killing …. to preserve peace … ???

Well, she certainly likes kicking some ass !!!?!!!

Plotwise, and cast wise, well, this I found more interesting than the film, when it all played out, and I had time to assess it all.

So, Ex Israeli Defence Force girl, being Gadot, takes on the role of the…

” Righteous Warrior ” ……

Huh Hmmm … Any Coinkeydink’ in how she managed to get cast as an, AMAZON, Warrior Princess … who is ultimately AGAIN …

Righteous … ?!?

I also AGAIN, say, AMAZON … ???

Well, if Hollywood has issues with whitewashing characters/stories, they clearly didn’t see it here !!!

…. However, Ms. Gadot is fairly pleasing on the eye,

…. for …. white audiences right … ???

but hey, if she can lift a Goddess Warriors’ Sword, then I should get a go at being the next Bond 2 rass …. LOL ???

However, her first ally, outside of her home, in the movie, is wait … ?

An American Soldier …. again ….

Any coinkeydink with the ACTUAL … USA/Israel relationship … ???

A little concerning, until, after all’s said and done, Terrible Germans getting blamed for being such AWFUL, Murderers and Propagators of War, we find out that the, ” GOD OF WAR “, Ares, as defined in the flick, is actually ….. Wait for it ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

British … !!!!!

ENGLISH … in fact !!!!!!

So, the man in the movie who claims to have, CHECK IT …..

Manipulated humans from various places, to wage war, because that’s what we are apparently good for, comes from Good Ol’ England …. ?!!!?

I’d say the way that the film connects nations and vibrations of a violent, deceitful and wicked type, is … when you look at the world at large ….

” PRETTY DAMN … INCREDIBLE ” …

However, it’s just a comic book, fictional tale, put trough the Hollywood Machine, so, nothing to read into there …..

Okay ….
Yeah Right …. !!!!!

All this, while Manchester, London Bridge & where, Finsbury Park of all places … !!!!!!

Received TERROR Attacks of varying degrees, and from various creeds it would seem …..

Theresa May made an election Boo Boo, and didn’t re-inforce her majority, but has ended up calling on Northern Irelands DUP, to gain some kind of majority for her Brexit talks etcetera to get through the Houses in Westminster, after her parties, election debacle !!!!!

Yup … Pretty Incredible … !!!!

But Wait … The last of the things i’ll mention for now, has to be the INCREDIBLE SCENES, that saw Grenfell Tower, in West London, basically become a towering inferno …. !!!!!!

Well, there’s nothing, remotely funny about the loss of homes, livelihoods and lives….

However, a lot of … ” Funny Business ” … would seem to encompass everything, from initial media coverage, to discoveries of flammable, REJECTED material, being used in the building, that was allegedly sanctioned by Government, and some clearly, very shady, cold hearted companies, who could clearly have cared less for the residents !

Even The Queen went to view the aftermath ….. !!!

INCREDIBLE … Indeed, and all this before I even get to Africa and other incidents overseas, in the past few weeks ….

Well Finally, I had an Incredible time in Grenadas’ … Island of Spice, so, gladly, i’ve been far away from such sights and scenes …..

So with such Incredible times, it only seems right for me to make this month’s post, some … Incredible Rhymes …..

Check them out ….
and be careful out there people …. !!!!!

Hmmm …. Some REAL TALK from Lord Jamar …..

Much that I have always said, that just makes, BASIC SENSE, and, rational logical thinkers would say the same, those who choose to refute the logic ….

Well …..

DENIAL … is a … BITCH !!!!!

I cannot and do not agree with EVERYTHING he says, but much deserves a moments’ thought …. So, listen to it all before you dismiss it, because you hear things that disturb your … ” Romanticised ” …

” Wonderland World ” …..

Wake the FUCK UP ….. !!!!!!

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

And Part 2 of Englands’ Forgotten Slaves ….. Tut Tut …

And the story continues ….

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

What can one say, apart from, Good ol’ England … !!!

Well Well Well ….

When Black history month comes around, this should make for some very interesting viewing, and debate, amongst the generations to come……

Diaries, Logs, Inheritance via some form of … ” Compensatory ” … type of …

Wait ….

” REPARATION ” …. payment …. ?!?

Ahhh ….. but, we blacks have been talking out our ass crack, when it comes to demanding stuff like that …. Errrr. yeah … I think in fact …

I KNOW … NOT … !!!!!

So, for all those who, LOVE OFF England, be you, the offspring of NON-Caucasian, immigrants/slaves, who were born and raised there, or, just visitors to … ” Great Britain “, make sure to remain that side of the fence, and, DON’T … now switch,, because of stuff like this, that shows the legacy, and, TRUE nature of those ….

“Ever so Lovely”, English, ladies and gents ….
