” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

” Well Well Well ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 17/8/2005

Okay so, following on from my previous post …..

This was inspired by the, below stories….

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4157892.stm
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4158832.stm

However, when you look at current Whitehouse events,
they don’t seem to be, so far removed ……

So much for, ” The Don “, Bucking the trends of the …

” Status Quo ” … as I believe he indicated,
that Hilary C, would of maintained…..

Errr Hmmmm …..

Well, when it comes to Political Games, be they those, in the USA or the UK,
it seems to be the ….

” Same Ol’ Same ” …

Tut Tut now Mr. Trump,
surely you DIDN’T … LIE, to the good American People who voted for you ….. ?!?

LMFAOL ……. !!!!!!

Well Well Well…..

What can you smell … ???

ME … ?!?

I smell a … ” Crock of Lies “…
from … TOP LEVEL … Policing guys ……

I also smell … INCOMPETENCE … !!!!!!!!!

That’s why I wrote a poem …
and entitled it … ” Who’s Next ? “…

So people …
where’s your … ” Common Sense “… ?!?

Someone needs …
Some … ” Recompense “…

Right now … it’s …
… A Family …
whose son has died …

” IN A TRAGEDY !!! “….

Their son was living …
…. ” Happily “….

before he met …
…. CALAMITY …. !!!!!!!!!

This ain’t …
A … Doris Day … movie … !!!

This is cos’ …
He was … BULLIED … !!!
by those … ” clever “…
…. ” Met’ Police “….

NOT … like kids … !!!
with … Stupid Tricks …

but from … THIS …

REAL … Gun Bullets … !!!!!

This is … something …
TRULY … SICK … !!!!!!!!!

These are things …
They … DO Commit … !!!
to … EVERYONE … of colour …
Not just … ” Brazilian Kids “…

Ahhhhhhhhh…..

Let’s just get …
The Facts … CORRECT … !!!

He was … ” Asian “… ?!?
NO … ” African “… ?!?

Who Cares … !?!

He was …
An Immigrant … !!!!!

These are words
of … IGNORANCE … !!!!!

IGNORANCE …

is like … NONSENSE … !!!!!!

try using … THIS …

INTELLIGENCE … !!!!!

Better still …
Use … ” Common Sense “…

Who is it … !?!
that … ” Benefits “… ???

from a life …
of … Street Gunfights …

NOT … Black Folk … !!!

TRUST ME … that’s right …

How about … ?
TRUE … English Types …

Those who are …

WHITER …
than white … !!!

and …..
Hate to see …
Non-whites ….. in sight ….. ?!?

That’s a plight …
These … Racists Like … !!!
and then enforce …
with … ALL Their Might … !!!!

to put us … down …
in … English Towns … !!!

That’s why … So Many …
Young Blacks … FROWN … !!!

UNLIKE … most poets …
I’m … NO CLOWN … !!!!!!!

because my words …
buy souls … like pounds …

Who was bought … ???
this time around …

to keep … “the truth”…
inside … their mouth … ?!?

This is … REALLY …

… SICKENING … !!!!!

Even those …
who are … ” Legit “…
may get hit …
for where … they sit … !?!

NOT … with belts …
but with … BULLETS … !!!
or with … Axes … !!!
Think on that…

Racists … NEVER …
die like … THAT … ?!?

Watched … ALL NIGHT …
from … Council Flats …
by Police …
What’s up with that … ?!?

They take life …
with … Too Much … Stealth … !!!!!
while they just …

” Relieve “… themselves … !?!

Those are words …
that are … HEARTFELT … !!!

Check the report …
Your heart … will melt……….
if you’ve got …
Some … DECENCY … !!!

Unlike … YES …
These … MET’ Police … !!!!!!

who think … it’s right … ?
to simply be …

ABOVE … the law …

while people… Grieve… !!!

This poem…

comes from … MY ANGER… !!!!!

But …..
These Days…

Does it matter… ???

what we say …
or … what we do …
because our youth
are being … schooled …

in … PROPAGANDA …
NOT … The Truth … !!!!!

Trust me …
I am staying … ” cool “…

Your proof is …
how I … air my views …
Without resorting … to abuse …

Incitement’s … something …
for a …. FOOL …. !!!

This is … NOT …
something … I do … !!!

So just before ….
” They Try “… THAT ONE … !!!

Hatred is ……
something I …………………………………………………….

SHUN………………..

I write these things ….
for …. EVERYONE …

Don’t just … Trust …
… ” Technology “…

or these … KILLING … !!!
….. Met’ Police …..

QUESTION …. ??!??

what they … say to you …
make them … give you …

CONCRETE PROOF … !!!!!

Sift through lies …
to find … THE TRUTH …

Don’t buy into …
Lies they … SELL … !!!

Calm yourself …..
Take in …. ” GOOD SMELLS “…. !!!

and Remember … this poem …

Called ……

” Well Well Well “…….

Lest we forget …. “Open Season” … written by Big Virge 9/4/2015

Well ……..
It seems it’s … OPEN SEASON …

for … MURDEROUS … Policing … !?!

NO MORE …
will blacks take … Beatings … !!!

Police will leave us … Bleeding … !!!
while they … KEEP ON … receiving …
PROTECTION … for yes … leaving …

Blacks with …

NO PULSE or … FEELING … !!!
In Fact … NO LONGER … Breathing.

and then …..
comes … ” Court Proceedings ” …
that leave black people … ” SEETHING ” … !!!!!!

Well fine it’s … OPEN SEASON …
for poetry … now … Seeking …………………………………………………….

Some TRUTH …
and less … Deceiving … !!!

See ….
I’m Incredibly … not shocked …
at how … poor … ” Walter Scott ” …

got shot by …
some … white cop …

when Walter … tried to run …
from this … Policeman … SCUM … !!!!!

But ……
before I … move along …

He may well have done wrong … ?!?
but … ” Officer Slager ” …
Let Off … EIGHT SHOTS …
in … Walters’ BACK … !?!!!? …

Let me just …. ” back track ” …..

He shot … ” EIGHT TIMES ” …
Taking … ” HIS LIFE ” … !!!!! …

Because ………….
said … SLAGER …

” He feared for his safety
because Mr. Scott, tried to
grab his Taser ! ”

So …
That means … WHAT … ?!?

He … Deserved to be shot …
EIGHT TIMES … in his … BACK … !?!!!?!

Maaaaannnnn ….

ENOUGH … of this CRAP … !!!!!

What kind of Policing … ?!?
gives Policeman teachings …
of … SHOOT TO DEATH … !!!!

Rather than … ” A Leg ” …

Shoot … BOTH …
… if ya like … !!!!!

But …..
ENOUGH … of these vibes …
where Black People … DIE … !!!!!!

Husbands and Wives …
whose Fam’ … are told … LIES … !!!!!
about … Cop … HOMICIDES … !!!!!!

So let me …

Season and OPEN ………………………………….
how people are …. Bro Ken …
and Blacks are just … ” Tokens “…
for them to be … ” Quoting ” …
all kinds of … DUMB THINGS … !!!!!!

About …

… Po’ Po’ …
… Shootings ….

An … Asian dude …
who went to … my school
posted … one day …

on my …
Facebook Page …

“Blacks need to be wise
when police are in sight,
and not antagonise,
cos that’s how they’ll die !”

Yeah THIS … Indian Guy …
felt he had … The Right …
to tell me … ” Why ” …
Police TAKE … Black Lives … ?!!!?

cos’ we ….

” DON’T ACT RIGHT !!! ”

Well YEAH … sometimes ….
but being … SHOT TO DEATH …
goes BEYOND …. NONSENSE … !!!!!

but ……
Asians like … HIM …
Prove that being … “submissive” …
is how … Most Choose … to live …
and how … Most Seem … to think … !?!

How many … Asian girls …
and I … DON’T MEAN … Orientals … !!!

have been … ” Experimental ” … ???

when it comes to … Black Men …
being in their worlds …
as the … FATHERS OF …

….. Their Children ….. ?!?

It’s CLEAR ….
from their … ” Caste System ” …
that … Inter-Racial Teams …
are …. Rarely EVER … seen … !!!

Unless their partner’s …
….. ” White ” ….. ?!?

Most Asians ….
Don’t Trust … blacks …
and that is simply … FACT …

In Fact …
Some do believe …
that blacks are just … MONKEYS … ??!??

Check through their … “History ” …
Such words … AREN’T FALLACY … !!!!!!!!!!

When we now … ” Greet Police ” …

Should blacks … IMMEDIATELY … ?
get down upon our knees …

and BEG … like …

… ” Slavery Scenes ” …

“Please Massa’, don’t shoot me !”

which leads me to …
… These Blacks …

Whose uniform’s now …
…. ” Packed ” ….

to join these …
… Police Klans … !!!!!!!

What have they … ” Changed ” …
in … Policing ways … ?!!!? …

” Not A Lot ” … !!!!!! …

Ask … ” Walter Scott ” … ???

Well sadly now …

You … CAN’T DO THAT … !!!!!!

because what is … FOUL …
is … THIS HERE FACT … !!!!!

while Walter died
and lied … FACE FLAT …

A cop who was … BLACK … !!!
seemed to search Mr. Scott …
as if … He’d … STILL ATTACK … ?!!!?

and then …
let this … white cop ..
treat him … LIKE HIS DOG …. !???!

I’m …
SICK … of the … CRAP … !!!!!!
now coming from … Blacks … !!!!!!!

Will they wanna … Shoot ME … ?!?
for this … REAL POETRY … !?!

See it’s been …

….. OPEN SEASON …..
for … QUITE SOME TIME … !!!!! …

cos’ ….
Black folks be … ” submissive ” …
as if they’ll face … ” A Lynching ” … !!!

for .. BREATHING …
and NOT … ” Flinch-ing ” … !!!!!

when … Po Po lights …
Start …. Blinking …. !!!!!!!

which right now …
gets me thinking …

that … ” William Lynch ” …
is looking down and saying …

“Look at these Black Clowns !”

Folks ….
This here … AIN’T …

” 12 Years A Slave ” …

This shooing happened …
…. ” YESTERDAY ” …. !!!!!!!!

In ….
South Carolina ….
where that PIG …
has been … Fired … !!!

But ….
Without … ” The Footage ” …
would he still be out … SHOOTING … !!! ? !!!

See i’m …
a man of … ” Reason ” …

but right now …
I’M SEETHING … !!!!!

because ….
when it comes to ….

… KILLING BLACKS …

It’s …..

… STILL …
….. CLEARLY …..

…. ” Open Season ” ….

“Racism Pon’ TV” … A poem written by Debronique Ellis

All i’m gonna say is, WOW, couldn’t of put it together better, myself !!!
More power to Ms. Ellis !!!

Racism pon TV

Racism, what is it?
Is it to judge a man by the thinness or the thickness of his lips,
Di shape a him nose, di style a him clothes?
How can it be, that my blackness or my brownness or my whiteness
determines me, my personality?
Well you tell me! You di man pon di TV!
Oh! yuh think I didn’t see!?
because you try to hide and disguise while YOU, dear sir, patronize!
And somehow manage to pass di message to di unsuspecting minds!
Minds that cannot recognize the signs, di discreetly degrading lines
dat these actors are paid to say. Why do dis when you say, all men are equal?

Lies! This is not wat you truly believe!
Yuh too lie man! Stop deceive!
If wi all equal den why? Why portray me di black man as di bad guy?
Why portray him di Chinese as di smart guy?
Why yuh mek it look like seh she di Indian nuh have nuh common sense,
And seh you di white man, must control all di dollars and cents?

Racism what is it? Is it to judge a man by di texture a him hair,
him skin colour black, white or fair? Yes! But check dis:
di bigga heads dem all know dis,
Suh dem wont set up di media by being what we call ‘racist’, no!
Dem do it discreetly, dem use subtlety, all in the name of entertainment.
And wi buy dis, disdainful arrangement!?
Pon di tv we are being stereotyped, marginalized, categorized by our race and ethnicity.
Maybe not openly and directly,
But it is there, and if yuh smart or observant yuh will become aware.
Aware that di tv many times portray you and me as:
Di theifin’ criminal black or Hispanic bwoy!
Di Chinese weh can only own a restaurant or hack a computer!
Di Indian weh own a grocery store!
And di white man, inna him white collar,
stepping out wid him briefcase
Looking so dapper!

Look pon all dis, yuh eva notice, say in a horror movie wen a man fi dead,
Is always di black guy?!
Yes man, di white man have to survive!
“Oh, but this is just the plot of the movie and surely not racism.” Why?
“Because it’s not degrading or alluding to a race being inferior.” Shut up!
And stop di pretence! Cause me di black man, di Chinese man, all a wi have sense!
Wah mek di Indian caan own di multi-million dollar corporation? Or run out and save
di white man from a dangerous situation? No…..
Him nuh superior enough!
him nuh light-skinned enough!

This could just be my ism…. or di definition of racism!

Suh racism, what is it? Check yuh dictionary or guh turn on yuh t.v!

“Prefer” … A Poem written by Big Virge 27/3/2006

“Prefer” … A Poem written by Big Virge 27/3/2006

Do you … PREFER … ?
to hear … words …
that … leave you …

…. ” STIRRED ” …. ?!?

or …

Prefer to hear verse
that’s a lil’ … PERVERSE …

I Prefer …
to hear … ” TRUTH ” … !!!!!

But …..
What about … YOU … ?!?

Do you feel that … ?
What’s ….. REAL ……

Should be … “concealed”

This seems to be … RIFE … !!!
‘Within” …. ” English Life ” … !!!

This … “Choice” … to ignore …
when men … Die On Floors … !!!

Lying … and … DYING … !!!!!
in … ” Pools of ” … Their Blood … !!!!!!

Some Coppers … ” Prefer ” …
to … Laugh at … That Stuff … !?!

Some … ” Choose ” …
Not to … mention …
How cops get …

” PROTECTION ” … !?!

and …
walk away … FREE … !?!
when they should be …

… ” SENTENCED ” … !!!!!

I Prefer ….
to … Name Names …
Like … ” Christopher Alder ” …

A man who was … LEFT … ?
to … “CHOKE” … while he bled …

The Coppers in question …
Maintained their … ” Defence ” …

Then quickly … RETIRED … !!!
How … ” CON-Venient ” … !!?!!

I guess … some prefer … ?
to keep a … ” Closed Shop ” …
and … NOT … ” Punish Cops ” … ?!!!?

So ….
Based on … ” Such Plots ” …
I think … I’ll move on … !!! …

Which …..
Do you prefer … ?
A Brunette or Blonde … ?

Black … or … White ?
or … Do you prefer … ?
A … ” Choice ” … Asian Type … !!!

One with … NICE EYES … !!!
and … SEXY … ” Young Thighs ” … !!!

Be Careful though … guys … !!!
If … This Girl is … THAI …

When you
Go Down … ” Below ” …
You may get a … SURPRISE … !!!!!!!!

I Prefer … to be … CLEAR … !!! …
and avoid … ” False Veneers ” …

While some …
Clearly …. PREFER ….
to … STEER … and … ADHERE
to … CONFUSING … Your Ears … !!!

” Which ” … ?
Do You … Prefer … ?
to sit and … ” Concur ” …
with those … who use words …
To … KEEP … Visions … ” Blurrrrred ”

It’s merely … A Question …
So … Don’t start … ” Obsessing ” … !!!

I’m simply … ” Suggesting ”
That Lies … NEED TO … “Lessen” …

I Prefer to make … ” Love ” … !!!
while some … prefer … ” WAR ” … !!?!!

SO MUCH … ” Puch and Shuv’ ” … !!!
Ain’t Helping … ” The Cause ” … !!!!!!!

I Prefer …
NOT TO … ” HATE ” … !!!
because of … ” Your Race ” …

and will …
NEVER … ” Displace ” …
My right to … ” Debate ” … !!!!!

Use of … ” Intelligence ”
is a … GOOD … Preference …

Especially …. when allied to ….

… ” Good Common Sense ” …

” Sensible ” … THOUGHT …
NOT … ” Smart-mouthed ” …

………. ” RETORTS ” …….. !!!!!!!!!

is what …. I PREFER …. !!!
So … PLEASE … take a …

………………………………………

………. Pause.

Before you … RESORT …
to … cutting me … ” Short ” …

TRUST ME … that’s a plan …
You … NEED TO … ” Abort ” … !!!!!

I Prefer … to … ” PLAY ” … !!! …
than … sit and watch … Sport …

Especially … ” Those ” …
of the … ” Bedroom Sort ” … !!!!!

Games like … ” Foreplay ” …
with … ” SEXY ” … females …

Those who … ENJOY … !!!
“Playing” … with … MY TOY … !!!!!

“Stroking” … and … “Sucking” …
and … Later on … ” Hugging ” …

I’m Saying ….. !!!
There’s … NOTHING … !!!!!
That Beats … A nights … LOVING … !!!!!

My Preference … NOW …
is … Writing things … down …
and letting my thoughts …
become … ” Rhythmic ” … sounds … !!!!!

As soon as a … verse …
comes … out of … ” My Mouth ” …

Which … ?
Do you prefer … ?

to sing … or …
write songs … ?

or … NOT … to be heard … ?
and speak on … ” Our Wrongs ” … ?

DON’T … !!! …
Get it … CONFUSED … !!!

If that’s … what you choose …
Then … Play to … ” That Tune ” … !!!

But …..
Don’t then … HURL ABUSE … !!!
when people … ” Air Views ” …
That … leave you … ANNOYED … !!!

If you have …. ” A Point ” ….
That … You want to … ” Voice ” …

Then … SPEAK ON … ” Issues ”
Especially …. THOSE ….
that are … Fed by … ” The News ” …

Simple … ” ACCEPTANCE ” …
is … NO … ” Preference ” … !!!

I Prefer to … SPEAK UP … !!!

Why choose to play … dumb … ?!?
When … ” Speaking ” …
can …… HELP YOU ……
to … ” Bond With ” … HUMANS … !!!!

Just like … ” The Bond ” …
between … ” Son and His Mum ” … !!!

I would of … ” Preferred ” … !!!
to have … stayed … ” Next to Her ” … !!!!!

In … Heaven or Hell …
Wherever … she dwells …

I … MISS HER ..
and … SEND HER …

” My Love ” … as I spell …

“EVERY” … Last Letter …
of … “EVERY” … Last Word … !!!

“Mum, you are the better !
for leaving, this world !”

Sometimes … I’d Prefer …
NOT TO … be here … !!! …
That’s TRUE … when i’m … “Blue” …

But …..
What about … YOU … ?!?
Do you … look … ?
through the … news … ?

Then sit back and … ” Stew ” …
while you chew on … ” Your Food ” …
and … Wonder if … You … ?
are … One of … ” Gods’ Tools ” … ?

Do you think … ?
If you … “FILLED” … !!!

“Your Drink” …
with some … PILLS … ?!?
and … ” Slept with ” …

… ” THAT CHILL ” … !!!!!!!!

That …
You would be … ” Missed ” …
or simply ……. ” DISMISSED ” …….

” WITHOUT ” ….
A … ” Last Kiss ” …

What would you … PREFER … ?
to be … ” Buried ” … or … ” Burned ” … ?

or left like a … WHORE … !!!
to die on the … ” Floor ” … !!!

After Suffering … TRAUMA …
Like … ” Christopher Alder ” … !!!!!

I’m Back … !!! …
it would seem … ?
to where I … ” began ” …

Well …..
Beginning … or … END.
or … Stuck … ” In between ” …

Has My … Poetry … ?
and … Usage … of words …
Left you ….. feeling …..

…….. STIRRED …….. ?!?!?

My use of …. ” Verbs ” ….
May … sometimes … HURT…
and may …. DISTURB …. !!! ….

But when … I Observe …
How the world … NOW TURNS …

Writing …
About Crimes …
is what …… I …….

…. ” Prefer ” ….

What a day . . . . ! ? ! . . . . .
The news is simply, . . .
Full of . . . . “JOKES” . . . . !

TECHNOLOGY’S, in the news again !

A SAT NAV, system on a coach, directed the driver to the wrong town !!!

Unfortunately, as the coach was destined for a town in … FRANCE !!!
It would seem a bit funny that the coach ended up in . . . . . . . . . .

WAIT FOR IT . . . .

. . . . . “BELGIUM” . . . . ! ! ! . . . . .

Looks like the passengers, “Shopping trip !”, was cut rather short, and turned out to be a “PAID FOR” . . . . technological tour, of a place they, DIDN’T PAY TO SEE … !!!

So much for the benefits of technology in this instance !!!

A fourty year old woman is feared drowned, because she dived into a river in Dorset, to save, her dog !!!

Now saving your pet is … ONE THING … !!!!
Putting, “YOUR LIFE”, on the line, to do it,
Now that’s, SOMETHING ELSE !!!!!!
