” 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 !!!

So, this piece expresses my love for this art form….
Don’t let the title fool ya, or, excite the perverts among ya …… !!!!!

I hope y’all enjoy the vibe, as much as I enjoyed writing it,
because the truth is that……

I … REALLY LOVE … Sex …

with … Arguments … !!!

That’s why … My … ” Pen ” …
is my … New girlfriend …

We make … ” Love ” …
and Love the touch …
of pen to page ….

When we … Engage …
It feels just like …
A … Sexual High …

NO … NOT That Way … !!!
You’ve got a … SICK BRAIN … !!!!!

There’s Nothing … quite like
Sexy … Feminine Thighs … !!!
but … after sex …
and … Cigarettes …

Some girls give … STRESS …
to their … boyfriends … !!! …

That’s why I like …
to … sit and write …

Because ……..

I Don’t get stressed …
by my … New Girlfriend …

Her name … is … ” Pen ” …

NOT … Penny …
or … Penelope … !!!

Should I …
say it again … ?

My … ” Pen ” … is now
My New … girlfriend …
and YES … we have …
INCREDIBLE … Sex … !!!!!!

The kind of sex
WITHOUT … the stress …
of …… HIV ……
or other types of … STD’s … !!!!!

Sex like this …
is … TRULY … Bliss … !!!

NO Condoms …
and NO … Colons … !!!!!!!!!

Except … for those …
that fit in … Prose …

So … NO Assholes …
and NO … Mistakes … !!!

Helping us to … avoid …
Long Term … Headaches … !!!

But … EVEN If …
by chance … they do …

Trust in this … !!!

They’re just … ” Removed ” …
Without … tissues … !!!

Or … with trips …
to … ” THOSE ” … Clinics … !!!!!

If … During …
or … because of … sex …
We make a … Mistake …

NO … Pregnancy tests … !!!
or … Arguments …

Our friend … ” Tipp-Ex ” …
is our … ” Best Mate ” …
Just like … THAT …
Mistake … ERASED … !!!!!!!!!!

I’m telling you … Straight …

I think that … Pen’s …
My New … ” Soulmate ” … !!!!!

She’s … ” Tall and slim ” …

Can change the colour …
of her … Skin …

And …………… If I think …
She’s a bit …. ” TOO BIG ” … !!!

She Doesn’t … fume …
if she gets … Ditched …
for … Another Pen …
I choose to … ” Pick ” …

This simply is …
The way of things …
in our … Sex Relationship …

” IT’S … ONLY SEX ! ”

is what she says ………

but makes sure that …
it’s NEVER … Bad …
when she’s attached …
to my … ” Notepad ” … !!!!!!

She’s … QUALITY … man … !!!!!
and i’m … SO GLAD …
that she … ” Found Me ” …
Through … ” Poetry ” …

She told me ….

” Virge, I love your rap … !!! ”

but then … Of course …
I answered back …

“Come on now Pen,
It’s not just rap !
Don’t get it confused
like certain crews !
This is something
Beautiful !
What we do,
leaves people moved,
just like you,
whenever you choose,
to sex it up,
in my front room !!!”

She simply said,

“Big Virge that’s true !
How about this view ?
Your way with words
makes our love work !”

I’m … Telling You …… !!!

She’s a … SPECIAL … girl …
who makes me feel …
On … TOP OF THE WORLD … !!!!!

She loves me with …
Her heart … FREELY … !!!!!

and chooses to ….
Just …. let me be ……..

Until it’s time …
to just … recline …
and let our souls …
Make Love … through scrolls …

It’s MORE THAN … sex …
when this …. Unfolds ………………….

NO GIRL … provides …
Such … ” Loving ” … vibes …
WITHOUT … ” Conditions ” …

That’s … THE CRIME … !!!!!

Whenever I write …
It’s a … JOYOUS … Ride … !!!

Even when …
My Anger … finds …
A place within ….

” Poetic ” … lines …

But … EVEN … then …
” My Pen ” … Still Shines … !!!!!

and let’s me know …

” Hey Virge it’s fine
I’ll Love You til’,
the day you die !”

She is …” My LIGHT ” …
and my … SUNSHINE … !!!!!
and is … ” The Love ” …
that … FILLS … My Life … !!!!!!

When I just ………. sit ………..
and HOLD …….. ” My Pen ” …….

She ALWAYS sends …
My brain … these scripts …
that … in the end …
are … Celestial Gifts … !!!!!!!!!!

Negative … or … Positive
The balance reached ….

REJECTS … needless
……….. Vanity ………

but Welcomes … MORE …
………. Humility ……….

That’s why … The Sex …
is … SO DAMN GOOD … !!!!!

because … My Pen ….
will NOT BE …. ” Pulled ” …
Away from … ME …
for Cars … Babies …
or …. BIG MONEY …. !!!

She just … ” LOVES ME ” …
Through … ” Poetry ” …

Like My Mother …
did … DAILY …

From … UP ABOVE …
These days … My Mum’s …

“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

Virge.
