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

So folks, the World Cup Party has run it’s course !!!

France were basically worth the title, although the final wasn’t the greatest, contrary to the barefaced lies that a lot of these well paid commentators are churning out.

The dollar definitely dictates more than foreign policy, it dictates so much now, that it’s pretty crazy to see ” Allegedly ” … TOP CLASS Footballers, prove themselves to be anything but, worth the price tags they carry around with them now.

Neymar being one of those, and the less said about Brazils’ effort the better.

Don’t get me wrong, there were as ever, some truly OUTSTANDING Goals, however, to say this was one of the best World Cups’ of all time … ???

I think there are more and more people who are in need of some Thanos Treatment, because they’re making it very hard for those of us who call things as we see them, to do so, without being labelled some kind of killjoy.

It’s not that at all, but if England under Gareth Southgate of all managers, could get to the Semi Final, then maybe people need to just check this idea of how great this World Cup actually proved itself to be.

Not so great, more like adequate, is more the vibe i’m working with from what I saw.

However, hooliganism seemed to be almost non-existent !!!

Whatever is being said about Vladimir, his boys and organisers do not mess about, as was proven by the Russian Team, when suitably motivated it would seem, as well as the various parties tasked with making things run smoothly.

Since my last post, Kim, Vlad and The Queen have all spent time with the Trumpster’, as of course did Piers Morgan, his great mate, who got to chill with The US President on Air Force One !

Meanwhile Brexit’ talks are getting hotter and hotter, and parties have left Theresa’s cabinet, parties working for Oxfam have been found to be partying a little too much with certain, young Haitians … !!!!!!

Barbados now has a new party running the country, or does it … ???

The LGBT Party and Rainbow Flags have quickly found their place amongst Bajans, under our first, Lesbian Prime Minister, which of course, most people are now saying, shouldn’t, and, doesn’t matter !

Funny that, for such a religiously, conservative country …. ???

Well again, ” Apparently “… ?!?

I wonder is that the same kind of matter, that, Black Lives’, have claimed as their own ???

… Or …

The type that denies a man, any sense of dignity, upon his recognition and acceptance, that he has some black in him, as was found out by, Officer Cleon Brown in Michigan, who then filed a claim against the force for it’s racist attitude to his announcement of his black portion, which, immediately had him referred to as Kunta, as in the Roots Slave Character ….

” Lovingly ‘ , by one of his colleagues … !?!

However, the case seemed to uncover that some rather racist comments were made by Officer Brown HIMSELF, upon receiving the news … ???

Be careful what you are … ” Party to ” … folks.

Ask Macron, or some of the interior Ministers of Italy, who unashamedly are adopting very, i’ll say, right wing attitudes towards migrants.

Spike Lee ranted about it not so long ago, but something as ridiculous as Brexit’, has bred a mentality that America had no problem embracing, and it isn’t unreasonable to suggest that much of Europe, whether publicly or behind closed doors, seem to be not as far left of, as many might claim, thus, I had to re-record this piece and drop it one more time before anything is finalised, if it actually ever will be when it comes to Brexit’ !!!!!

Please people, as is said in this piece, these days, prob more than ever before, you REALLY Need to Party … SMARTLY … !!!!!

Soon to be released off the, ” On The Virge Album “, where these words have received some very different treatment, musically, so, take a listen folks …..

and ……..

as recently re-recorded

Party ……

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.

“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 …. !!!!!

” Party “… A poem written & performed by Big Virge

Well folks, following on from my previous post about Fools and their Foolishness, it’s clear that Brexit’ negotiations may prove to be, a little frosty, from the EU’s perspective, but hey, Theresa May never struck me as a particularly easy woman to have to negotiate with, as she immediately reminded me of a Certain, ” Iron Lady “, by the name of Thatcher….. upon my first sight of her !!!!!!

However, there are party shifts, from members of the public, who of course are individual parties …

…. to possible, European shifts, as elections shine a light on the underlying issues of a Union that, CLEARLY was, (Never Really) …. That Unified …. ???

Or… was it … ?!?

Well, the Party does, “seem to be over”, with regard to Britain and their status amongst their European friends ….

Did I say friends … !?!

I mean …. counterparts of course !!!!

(Maybe not, quite so FRIENDLY, and ” Seem ” … being a very important word, in all the public shenanigans they feed the masses…….)

However, parties of all kinds are taking issue with Mr. Trump and his policies too, as they have been and continue to do, towards Jacob Zuma, and notably now, in Venezuela too …..

Noticing a trend folks ???

Well, Barbados has it’s political issues too, but, the people here, are a little less bothered by them, or again, are they ???

Well, much like the beginning of this poem suggests, i’ve had my fill of pretty much, ALL of these parties and partying now …..

Well, who wants to be the old man in the club eh ….. ?!?

Certainly NOT… Britain anymore, that’s for sure …. LOL ….. !!!!!!

….. and this piece takes a swipe, if a slightly, facetious one, at all these various parties, political or otherwise …..

Take a listen …….

“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

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 ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???
