Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

“Surprised” … A Poem written by Big Virge 14/11/2007

Ya know ….
You’d be … ” Surprised ! ” …
by what you … ” FIND ! ” …
Resides …. Inside ….

Some peoples’ minds … !!!!

in some … it’s Clear … !!!
their thought waves … steer …

to ……

Fallacies ….
Hypocrisy ….
Thoughts of … GREED … !!!!!
or …. Cash Money ….

Others … Choose …
” Conservative ” … views …
about … The World …
and … how it … turns …

I guess … In Truth …
Some minds are … ” Primed ” …
to … DISMISS … clues …
that give … Clear Proof … !!!!!
about … ” What’s True ! ” …

But …..
Truth … These days …
has been …. Mislaid …. !!!!!
in …. Many Brains … !!! …
now … Clearly Drained …
of …. ” Common Sense ” ….

” Airheads ” …
Now … ” STRESSED !!! ” …
or … YES … ” Braindead ” … !!!!!

If that … sounds …

……. HARSH …….. !!!!!

I guess … my words …
have marked … the cards …
of minds that … work …

FAR FROM ……….. The Heart …
of … Rational Thought …
in souls … ” Not Bought ” … !!!!!

” Surprises ” …. for them
are … NOW … in store … !!!!!

” Ignorant Heads ” ….
who … choose to … Absorb …
Ideals of … ” War ” … ?!?
and … Divisive Talk …

Wars with …. A Cause …. ?
To Keep … The Poor …

… ” Controlled ” …
by … Fraud …
and crews that … “Hoard” …
Everything … except …

” The Monopoly Board ! ” …..

Cash and … Land …
Property … that’s … GRAND … !!!
and …. ” Luxuries ” ….
Beyond … Their NEEDS … !!!!!

You’d be … ” Surprised ” …
by what … you’d find …
These People … THINK …
THEY NEED … to … Live … !!!!!

They’d … Probably say …

” It’s relative ! ”

” Relative to … WHAT … ?!? ”

Paid displays …
of … Ignorant Ways …
because they’re … RICH … !!?!!

Well ….
Take This … IN … !!!
and … Think about … THIS … !!!!!

If you’re …
” Attacked ” … !!!!!
because of … CASH …

You … Choose To …

…… FLASH …… !!!!!!!!

by a … NOT HAVE … !!!

What will you do … ?

Act … ” Uncouth ” … !!!
or … Pull a … TOOL … !!!!!
and … Start to … SHOOT … ?!?
To Protect … ” Your Loot ” … ???

The … Poverty Gap …
is …. Wid..en……..ing … Man … !!!!!

and is a … TRAP …
that may … Catch … YOU … !!!!!
If … you’re … NOT … Shrewd …
and … “Chase Gold” … like … FOOLS … !!!!!!!

How much … CASH … ???
Can … One Man … use … ??!??

when other people …
……. ” LACK ” ……..
Basic things …. Like ….
……. ” FOOD ” ……. !!!!!!!

Thousands … Millions … !!?!!
Billions … Trillions … !!!!!!!?!!!!!!!

Think it …..

Through ………………

If you have …
… THAT MUCH … !!!
while others have …
…… NONE …….. !!!!!!!

How much … ” Freedom ” …
will your cash give … YOU … ?!!!?

A … HUGE … Estate … !?!
Behind … LOCKED GATES … !!!!!
with … Cameras Placed …
ALL OVER … The Place … !!!?!!!

” Okay, that’s great ! ”

” Don’t think so mate !!! ”

BIG Cash … !!!
Nice PAD … !!!

But …..
What do you have … ?!!!?

A … Load of rooms … !!!
You … BARELY … use … ?!!!?

and then ….
There’s Bills … !!!

You gonna … ” NEED ” …
…. ” Those Mills !!! ” ….

If you lust for a life …
of … ” Millionaire Types ” …

You may just find … ?
Yourself … ” Surprised !!! ” …
by … what it’s like …
to be like … ” Mike ” … !!!!!

So Many … minds …
are now … Inclined …
to think of things …
like … Being Rich … !!!!!

That … Cash Now … DRIVES …
their thoughts on … LIFE … !???!

But then …
Ofcourse …

Some minds aren’t … ” Fraught ” …
with … ” Greed-Fillled ” … thoughts …

Some minds are … Lined …
with … SO MUCH … MORE … !!!!!

Minds like … ” MINE ” …
are filled with … “Rhymes” …

” Designed and Primed ”
to spread …. Insight ….
About …. ” Our Lives ” ….
through words … ” We Write ” …

Others choose …
” Creative ” … moves …
of … ” Different Types ! ” …

to shed some … Light …
on things some … “hide” …
from … PUBLIC SIGHT … !!!!!!

while some heads …
……. Think ……..
About … ” Deep Things ! ” …

But …..
You’d … Only Know …
if you … get … CLOSE … !!!

and … OPEN … doors …
that allow … for talk …
” Resisting ” … Jokes … !!!!!

These days … I Find …
“Myself’ …. Surprised ….
by what’s … ” Inside ‘ …
Some peoples’ … minds … !!!

” Old and Young !!!!! ” ……

Now … leave me …
…. ” STUNNED ” …. !!!!!!

By …
How … They Think …
about … How We … Live …

” Deep Thinkers ” … tend …
to have faced … ” Tough Tests ” … !!!
that have … Led to … STRESS … !!!!!!!!!!!!

Filling Up …
Their heads … !!! …

and are … Usually Seen …
as being … ” Unique ” …
cos’ of … How They … Speak …
and … Seem to … BE …

Thoughtwaves …
… TOO DEEP … !!!!!
for … ” Sheep-Filled ” … Cliques …
whose minds … ” retreat ” …
from being ….. ” FREE ” …… !!!!!!!!

Some are … ” FEARED ” … !!!!!
and seen as … ” Weird !?! ” …

because of thoughts …
that prove … ” The Force ” …
is … STRONG WITH THEM … !!!!!
because of ….. Depth ……
That … FUELS … “Their Strength” … !!!!!!!

Like … Yoda and …
His … ” jedi Friends ” … !!!!!!!!!!

” People ” …
Like … THESE … !!!!!
are who … I seek … !!!

Flavas …. SWEET …. !!!!!
but … Strong like … beats …
that fill … The Streets …
like …. ” Symphonies ” ….

I’m a … ” Jedi Knight ” …
of a … ” Different Type ” … !!!!!

The type … who writes …
what’s in … My Heart …
and in … My Mind …

My views are … ” STARK ”
like … REALITY’S BITE … !!!!!

But now … I’m back …
to the … Very Start … !!!!!

So ….
Remember this line ….

If you … take the time …
You may … just find …
that what … Resides …
in peoples’ minds …

May well leave you ….

…….. Truly ……..

…. ” SURPRISED ” …. !!!!!
