“Don’t Get Carried Away !” … A Poem written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks,

All the best for the coming 12 month cycle !

It certainly looks like it could be a rough one, especially with, what increasing looks like a Hard Brexit, or, a NO Deal Brexit, coming the worlds way !

I think the Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe, has hit the nail on the head this week, when saying that the either, or scenarios, are not good looks for the rest of us !

Crazy price hikes, to varying degrees, if trade embargoes become a bigger issue than they already look like becoming !

Also, if the free movement of people is stifled, due to ridiculous attitudes towards sovereignty, and, border controls, then what happens ????

Well, apart from the obvious rise in nationalism, and right wing thinking, how does that translate into how services are run, and how the general governance of the country shifts, because it would clearly have to …..

It seems pretty clear now, that whatever governance comes, it’s gonna get testy, and cause further problems, when government policy could have resolved this a long time ago, by being stricter with regard to immigration laws, and I don’t mean the Windrush’ type of thinking and basically, racist policies !

I mean the employment of a system that meant that the actual Government Policy on it, made it clear, and more importantly, unable for THEM to make these laws, in order for THEM to benefit from cheap labour, that works well for their own purposes, ministers who want cleaners, nannies, gardeners, etcetera ….. Who would essentially be their, ” Modern Slaves ” !

Meanwhile, placing increased stress on those whose livelihoods, subsequently become pressured, due to the sheer volume of people trying to, not only, sneak into the country, but to then, also get work, which in turn, creates angst and the type of attitudes that lead to the result of the referendum on staying in Europe in the first place !!!

It’s such a mess, that it’s become, as some politicians are now saying, a national embarrassment !!!

Meantime, MP’s across parties are shouting about Theresa Mays’ lack of good judgement, and an inability to recognise that she cannot deliver what the people want, as if the rest of them could … when a 52/48 split was the result ???

Can’t please all the people, ALL The Time right ???

… which leads me to my first piece of the year, because it’s pretty clear to anyone looking on now, that the British Political System is BROKEN, and that, much like America, it now finds itself being scrutinised, and criticised, rather too frequently now, by it’s voters, because they neither have faith in the leadership, or the opposition, as per the impasse and shutdown of Americas’ Government over, ” THE WALL “, and No i’m NOT talking about the Pink Floyd Tune !!!!

So, whilst Theresa takes liks’ from basically, ALL SIDES currently !!!

Jeremy Corbyn is making, NO CONFIDENCE calls, and all sorts, to apparently get a general election ASAP !

However, one has to wonder if he did gain power, how that would play out in a world where Britains’, apparently, ONLY … ” Special Relationship “, is with America !!!

So, how’d y’all think Mr. Corbyn and The Trumpster’ would get along eh, and what THAT would mean for both economies and national relations …. ???

I don’t think it would be pretty, so, I wrote this piece a while ago, after local election results had people all stoked about what Jeremy could bring to the political table of fables in the United Kingdom …..

… and I have to say that a lot of people got, CARRIED AWAY, when perhaps they should of been more prudent ….

So, this month’s reflection of the current, Political Debacle that is currently running Britain, is simply called ….

DON’T Get Carried Away … !!!!!

and Those are SERIOUS Words relating to the SERIOUS Times that I believe 2K19 will provide …..

Take time and use your minds folks, because this Brexit’ thing really ISN’T a joke, and the effects of whatever happens will most definitely have effects across the globe !!!

“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.

Now THIS … is some poetry !!!!!

Something for the, ” Blinkered Fools “, who believe that following a flag or some form of patriotism, will in the end, allow them to feel as though they are worth something ….

This might just change their minds, a lil’ bit, at least !!!!!

Pure GENIUS !!!!!

Some minds are … ” Primed ” …

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 ” … ?!?

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

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 …

The … Poverty Gap …

and is a … TRAP …
that may … Catch … YOU … !!!!!
If … you’re … NOT … Shrewd …

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

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 … !!!!!

Some peoples’ … minds … !!!

” Old and Young !!!!! ” ……

” 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 …

in peoples’ minds …

May well leave you ….
