“Why are you being … Such A Sphincter ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 24/8/2006

I was with a …. female friend
when our conversation … led …

to ……
” Condescending Sinners ” … !!!
who are … CLEARLY …
…. ” Walking Sphincters ” …. !!!!!

Those who … THINK … ?
Their SHIT … DON”T STINK … ?!?!?

and think their views …
are … “Ever so” … COOL … !!!

which of course … Allows Them …
to … Talk Down … to you … ?!? …

Now ….
If you don’t know … ?
what a … ” Sphincter ” … is … ?

It’s a muscle that’s … shaped …
Kind of like …. ” A Ring ” ….

Like the one that … OPENS …
when you’ve … got to … GO … !!!!!

or in other words …
what we call … ” AN ASSHOLE ” … !!!!!

Now …
You know … ” The Type ” … !!!
about whom … I write …

Those who …
Talk to you …
Whilst looking down …

“Their Nose” … !!!

“Ignorant Clowns” …
who should …..
Keep their mouths …

….. “Closed” …… !!!!!!!

I’ve seen them come …
I’ve seen them … ” GO ” …

Many of … “THEM” …
Claim to … ” Write Prose ” …
and … some of them … “attempt” …
to host …. ” Live Shows ” ….. !!! …..

“Spoken Word”
or … ” Radio ” … ?

Many of them …
Really Should … STAY HOME … !!!!!

Instead of making …
” Ridiculous ” … quotes … !?!
That Clearly … SHOWS …
What’s Up … ” Their Nose ” … !!!!!

TV’s …. The Same …. !!!

because of … ” FAME ” … !!!!!

These people … ” THINK ” …
They’re … ” Oh So Slick ” … !!!!!
when clearly … they’re …

” The Weakest Link ” … !!!!!

Come on now folks … !!!

Haven’t you had enough ?!?
of … ” Sphincter Clowns ” … !!!
whose noses are … BROWN … !!!

They’re Clearly … SICK … !!!
because they … ” Lick ” …
THAT … ” Anal Hole ” … !!!!!!!

Where …
SHIT … comes out … !!!!!

Now ….
Captain Kirk and his crew …
May Be ….. ” Quite Bold ” ….. !!!

But …
That’s a … ” Black hole ” …
They Won’t … Boldly Go … !!!!!

YES …..
That’s a … JOKE … !!!
but … Trust Me … folks …

” Human ” … sphincters …
have sold … Their Souls … !!!

Let those words … SOAK …
Beyond … The Sphincter …
You call … Your Throat …

Who … do you know ?
who … Acts like … this … ?

Men that … “snitch” … ?
or … Women who … “Bitch” … ?

We all know … ONE … !!!
who lives by … “Tricks” …
and think that … THEY …
are … ” Oh So GREAT !!! ” …

or …. ” Intellectuals ” ….
who think they’re … COOL …
because they’ve been …
” To ” ….. Festivals …..

Where … Hip Hop played …
and they heard … Reggae …

“I say, I say !!!
Have you heard, that tune ?!?
by those two, coloured youths ?
They were so good
that i’m, down with the hood !!!”

Now ….
Replies like … THIS …
tend to leave them …
… ” Flustered ” …

“You said that, they were,
coloured, could you be,
more exact, were they
Green, Pink or Yellow ?
or, are you saying ?
They were black ?”

“So now, you’re down !
with the hood !!!
Don’t you live in ?
St. John’s wood !?!
In actual fact,
don’t you have,
another flat ?
Somewhere in, Upper Sheen
A place where, coloured people
are rarely ever, seen, unless
they’re there, to clean !!!?!!!”

These people live in …
……. ” Dreams ” …….
in … ” Comfort Zones ”
with ….. MEANS ……

A stash of cash …
that could buy …
Ki’s of … “GREEN” … !!!!!
YES … Ki’s … of weed … !!!
Enough to … FEED …

Drug families … !!!
Right here and … Overseas … !!?!!

Trust me … ” BELIEVE ”
Rich People … aren’t …
all … ” Squeaky Clean ” … !!!!!

That’s why …
” STRAIGHT SPEAK ”
Makes them …
” Feel WEAK ” … !!!!!

When my friend and I
sat and … “Analysed”

I said to her ….

“These human sphincters
make me sick !!!
I’ll write a script
that, lyrically flips,
and sheds some light,
on these, Bourgeois Types,
who think they’re right
whether day or night,
because they’re living,
life alright !!!!!”

“They” … aren’t afraid …
of more … price HIKES …
because their father,
sets the price !!!

To Ensure … that he …
gets a …. ” BIG SLICE ” …. !!!!!

to pay for his home …
In The … ” Countryside ” …

“His” … Second Home … !!!
Oh Yes …. That’s Right …. !!!!!
and the … ” Four by Four ” …
for his … ” Greedy Wife ” …
who cannot drive … but …
Wants the car because …
It’s Price is … ” HIGH ” … !!?!!

These people live …
A … DIFFERENT … life …

Then … talk to us like
We … DON”T HAVE … a mind !!!

But …..
What about … “Those” … ?
who are … EVEN WORSE … !!!!!

” Bourgeoise ” … WANNABEES … ??!??
who … Try to be … like …

…. ” The Bourgeoisie ” ….

when they live at …. Number 9
down the … ” Very Next Street ” … !?!

Living in …. DEBT
Like … everyone else … ?!?

ALL SHOW … !!!
and … NO TELL … ???

with their nose … “In The Air”
cos’ they … Don’t Like …

……. ” The Smell ” ……..

of … their own …
” Fake Lives ” …
and their … ” Fake Insights ” …

The Only Time …
They’re … NOT FAKE …
is when … THEY LIE … !!!!!

Take a minute and … THINK …

Then …
Rewind that line
Inside ….. Your Mind ….. !!!

The lives … they lead …
are so … ” CONTRIVED ” …

That’s why …
They Don’t Like …
The words I write …

“Condescending” … Termites …
Well …. ” REALITY BITES ” ….
and as time …. ” Flies ” ….

They may just find … ???
That thoughts they … “TRUST”
May leave them … ” STUCK ” … !!!!!

and … Those of them …
who live life … ” Blinkered ”

WILL …. Fall Foul of ….
Those of us … Who Are …

….. ” THINKERS ” ….. !!!!!!!!!

Who …
Look at them thinking …

“Why are you being
Such a SPHINCTER !?! “

A Most Eventful Week … written by Big Virge 28/7/2013

Indeed, it has been a very interesting week for me, last Saturday was cool and chilled, but, it takes days to recognise that a simple thing like, falling from a hammock, that wasn’t that high of the ground, for a man my size, can still be quite the damaging thing !!!

I may have been fighting a flu type strain that seems to be in the island at the moment, but, it was the days ensuing, that showed me, that, I may have shaken my spine, neck, and head into places that they shouldn’t of been, so, yup, bit of a rough week, physically, which, culminated in my being in an accident on Thursday afternoon on the Worthing Coast Road, where a man who, apparently, doesn’t live here, decided to drive into the side of my ride, without really giving a damn !!!

Try paying attention my man !!!!!!!!

The fact that he was driving his sisters’ car, says it all really, meantime, I have man trying to get into some kind of war of words with me, due to my explaining that his new love is not in my list of cool peeps, as are many of the collective who surround her.

So, rather than accept that, okay, he can’t do anything about it, he felt the need to embark upon, what I deem to be some kind of threat, which was indicating that, oh, I shouldn’t talk about his woman like that, as in his opinion, she is the best thing since slice bread to walk the f’ing earth !!!

I mean, good for you man, but, recognise, my opinion, i’m entitled to … !!!

…. and, more importantly, I am not gonna do like most people do, and come round them playing that all is cool, when it isn’t, but, this would seem to be the Bajan way, lie to keep up f’ing appearances !!!!!

Why exactly … ???

Bajans, like their English Masters, have become great exponents of the facade/veneer of love and tolerance, but tolerance, as i’ve written about, means, allow to exist !!!

My views, opinions, require no-ones’, “allowance”, of them, they are what they are regardless.

I’ve spoken about, “Manbitch”, behaviour, for some time now, and just because a girl/woman is sucking my balls, doesn’t mean she’s above being criticised, and, fellas, here’s a hint for you, they tend to respect you more, when you are like that, rather than filling up their heads with this idea that they are the sun, moon, stars and everything else ???!!!???

Why, well, because that’s just NOT TRUE !!!

Anyway, I got to the end of the week in fair shape, having been in Police Stations, being told stuff like, ” Calm down, you’re being aggressive ! “, upon explaining that i’d merely come in, due to being asked ….

It would seem that the US and UK style of policing, is reaching the Bajan fold, however, cool and calm prevails, with men who clearly feel that their uniform makes them into some form of god ???

How they can be so blinkered in their vision of themselves, is really beyond me, but, if police across the world are looking at the US and England, no wonder they think that they can, not only talk to people how they want, but, can get away with what they want !!!

NOT COOL !!!

However, what was cool was a very different kind of chat I had with a Bajan Man, when I was in a place getting some bits done.

Now, this man advised me early on, that his grandfather was white, now, incredibly, a couple of generations down, he’s black, maybe not dark like me, but he’s no Obama shade, he is what I define as being a black man, just goes to show you how we are all interbred, at some level, and are perhaps, closer to each other, than all these separatist ideals would have us believe.

Now, on that note, the conversation started on, White Barbados, well, he was quick to state how, white barbadians are indeed, some of the most, arrogant, obnoxious, ignorant people upon this, now, seemingly, god-forsaken planet, full of lies, deceit, and actually, everything but the superiority they like to try to present as being their position.

He further explained to me that in his experiences here, he’s heard white tourists speak on the disgust they have felt, in being associated purely by their colour, to these white Bajans, who seem to feel that even today, they are not to be challenged, questioned, or, worse still, served after black people, at any time !

We then got very deep into the psyche of black bajans, he was quick to level his disgust at the poor levels of service that he sees bajans giving to tourists and ofcourse to black tourists, who, you’d of thought, they’d at least be civil to.

He then explained that he knows what eating three crackers for the day is like, he knows poverty, but, would not allow that to stop him being civil, polite and helpful to anyone needing help from him, especially now that he works, and deals with all sorts of people within his work.

He and I got into the very ideal of the world being in, as his stated, an upside down state of, ” Demonic Madness !!! “.

A very strong term, but, in all honesty, with people dying in more and more vindictive, vicious and brutal ways, it’s hard to dispute, with peoples’ general treatment of each other, seemingly descending, into some, Neanderthal like, grunting, demanding type of communication.

He has children, but was quick to state that he felt me to be a better man than he, for not bringing children into this time, he also stated that keeping out of peoples’ business is an even smarter move, especially here, because as with the aforementioned man, in this post, Bajans don’t seem to be able to accept that you’re here, but, feel happier living without being around them too much, as if they are perfect, and ultimately, honest people to deal with.

He also spoke about the, “timid”, nature of Bajans, relating it to the impoverished living that many have experienced, through multiple generations.

Well, when you study the fact that, other than people like Bernie Grant (RIP) in the UK, very few black people, be they artists or otherwise, are famed for being that individual to have spoken out against the huge levels of institutional racism that is in full effect, to this day, in England, I confirmed to him that, the colonial effect of slavery & the beautiful crafting of mind control that the “Windrush Immigrants”, in England, were then indoctrinated into, has now ensured the legacy, that, as black people, around white folks, we are to be seen occasionally, but definitely, not to be heard.

This, in my view, has much relation to the timid nature of not just black people here, but, all over the world, in many cases.

We spoke about the street mentality black men, who don’t want to do anything, yet, expect everything but the shirt off, “YOUR BACK”, especially from those of us who have worked and earned a little something for themselves, which he stated as being, one of the most painful things to accept about many young bajan men, the disrespect of our own people.

As elder men have explained to me over the years, it is sad, but TRUE, and as the saying goes, when shit hits the fan, they are quick to turn …

NO, not on their oppressors, but, on those who they feel, for some reason, are lesser than them for taking shit from these people, to ensure that you can provide and educate your family and offspring to live in a vein that avails, some sense of parity, if not, financially, intellectually & spiritually.

Funny how so few black folks seem to feel that way about Mr. Obama ???

Anyway, this level of existence makes you into a target, as you shouldn’t have it, because you must have sold out to have something in … “Their world” …. ???

… which doesn’t compute, because some of us have stood firm in offices and on building sites, when faced with ignorance, racism, and denial of pay that white counterparts receive, purely because of the fact that they are white !!!

I dare them street/beach man to try it for a month and see how easy it is, PUNKS !!!!!

IT is a tough world for a black individual whatever level of society you choose to embrace, but, they can’t see that, because their so caught up in their own bullchit, and then feel that they have the right to take from you, when you have worked and struggled and battled your wish to just go into work sometimes, and start letting off on anybody of fairer skin than you !!!!!

The fact is that when you walk out of their den, unscathed, they’d better fucking believe, that’s quite an achievement, because many have failed, because they couldn’t control their tempers or mouths !!!!!

This brings me back to white bajans, who do seem to have that vibe about them, that we black folk, should not have the cheek to talk back to them about anything ….???

Sorry, are we in the fing 1800’s or something, Is Trayvon Martin and the likes of Stephen Lawrence subject matter, stuff that can’t now be thrown up in their face like,

“Just remember, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can treat me like them ?!?”

It would seem not …. but suffice to say, I deal with one, who is my landlord, who is I think, playing at being, one of the new age, slick white boys, but, only when money is being paid to him, it is interesting to study how they are around stronger black men, and then even more interesting to see the types of black people who work for them, and then, the pull they have in various levels of society, where their family members work, and who, in the event of something needing to be resorted, they can call upon.

All this from a 15 minute conversation with a man who did not see me as anything other than being another black male, who ended up in conversation with him, while he provided a service for me.

It is thankfully, individuals like him that keep the faith in men like me alive … !!!!!

Nuff Respect Papa !!!!!

Indeed, i’ll end this post with this line ….

As crazy as this week has been …..

It has proven to be ….

” A blessing in disguise ! ”

Enjoy your week people !!!

I hope to … Finally … get inside the Kensington Oval to enjoy some 20/20 this week ….

Many Thanks for the hook up T
