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

So, another crazy week in this world of ours ….

Today’s news confirms, that Harvey Weinstein is at the very least now, a convicted sexual predator !

Depressing times are coming for the old fella, as escaping jail doesn’t look likely, before his passing, but time will tell.

As I’ve always maintained, the argument that fear stopped these women from bringing his indiscretions to light immediately, will never sit well with me, but much like the LGBT, and #MeToo movements, a heavy backlash would now seem to face anyone who’d dare question the validity of their arguments, or position.

Well, my argument is still the same, why is no-one asking these women about, the women they allowed to subsequently, have to face this abuser ???

It’s just a QUESTION … ?!?

Not everyone buys the arguments presented, as to why it was so difficult for these women, who seem to have gone on, in many cases, to have successful careers, to stop this man from doing what he’s now been convicted of doing, by speaking up about his abuses, immediately.

So, moving on, A German Mass Shooting, that seems to have been racially motivated, and more craziness, as another crowd of people have had to face a car being driven into them, where children have been amongst the injured !!!

It’s easy to look at the world now, and get depressed, but, what is depression really ???

An inability to deal with the realities of the world, or simple denial of that, which is part of your world, that makes you uncomfortable ???

Well, denial in my opinion, is very closely linked to depression, as said, reality, if you’ve embraced a fantasy existence, may well cause a level of depression, that is very difficult to recover from !!!

However, as this weeks piece will show, from impeachment denial, to weather fronts that are causing floods in the UK, and around the globe, these are things that definitely do not feed happiness and positivity into people’s thinking.

Face the truth, and refuse to run from it, learn from life’s lessons, and maybe just maybe, you might find that this helps you to avoid the woes of …..

The Total Package … (Redux) written & recorded by Big Virge

It makes sense to ask the question,
as it’s Pretty Clear now, the police are not … !!!

and, according to the woman who inspired this piece

I’m clearly not either …

Cheek !!!

but my lack of notoriety would seem to support her position ……

“Isn’t less … Sometimes … MORE ?!?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/10/2005

A suitable follow up to my last post …..

Isn’t … less … ?
Sometime … MORE … ?

Those words sound … GOOD …
If … You’re NOT … ” Poor ” … !!! …

But ……
Money … Doesn’t …
Give You … ” LIFE ” …
and … Life is … NOT …
Defined by …. ” Price ” ….

But ….
Is that … Right … ?!?

“Some” … would say …
it makes them … ” SMILE ” … !!!

Now … This Defines …
Those in … ” DENIAL ” …

It’s not my way …
to … Make you pay …
for things that … People …
Like to … Say …

But … writing things …
Helps … EASE … The Rage …
I Feel … Today …
because of … ” GREED ” …
That … leads to … PAIN … !!!!!

That’s why …
I’m … Asking … ?

What’s the score … ?

Isn’t less … ?
Sometimes … MORE … ?

cos’ … GREED …
is something …
I … ” DEPLORE ” … !!!!!

” Money ” …. Fuels ….
A … LOT of Wars … !!!!!
where people … ” DIE ” …

So …
How’s that … RIGHT … ?!?

More DEATH … than … Life
” Sees people ” …. CRY …. !!!!!

“Tears” … and eyes …
Don’t be … surprised …
If words I … speak …
” Darken ” … sunlight …

In todays’ times ….
while … writing rhymes …
I use … my mind …
to find … ” SUNSHINE ” … !!!

I have … Less Cash …
than … EVER BEFORE … !!!!!
and … face a life …
of being …. ” POOR ” ….

That’s … NOT FOR SURE …
But …. Money’s made ….
Pain … in me … ” SOAR ” … !!!

” Arguments ” ….
to get some … CASH …
are … ” DANGEROUS ” … !!!!!
and … Make Some … ” CLASH ” … !!!!!!!

I’d rather have ….. ” LESS ” …. !!!
than … ” MORE ” … of that … !!!!!

Mums and Dads …..
Now … Fight for … Cash … ?

” Ignoring ” … Daughters … ?!?
and their …. ” Lads ” …. !?!

These are … things …
NOT GOOD … but … BAD … !!!!!

EVEN … Fathers … !!!
and their … SONS … !!!!!
will go to … ” Court ” … ?!?

Now …
THAT’S … NOT FUN … !!!!!

“Over” …. MONEY …. ?!?
Come on now ….. !!! …..

That’s just as … BAD … !!!
as … Gun-Type … Sounds … !!!

“LESS” … Violence … !!!
is … BETTER THAN … MORE … !!!!!

Like … LESS DEFIANCE …
Breeds … ” Less War ” …

MORE … Aggression … !!!
FEEDS … Depression … !!!

“These” … are things …
I’d Like to … ” LESSEN ” … !!!

Sometimes … LESS TALK …
and … More … Action …
Can bring you … YES …

….. ” Satisfaction ” ….. !!!!!

and … That’s a … FACT … !!!
” Don’t ” … DISMISS THAT … !!!!!

But … it’s …
GOOD … to talk … !!!
when … Building Forts … !!!!!

But … !!! …

NOT … A Fortress …
Just for … ” YOU ” … !!!

… ” REMEMBER ” … !!!

” Other People ” … FOOL … !!!!!
may take …. because ….
They … Want That … TOO … !!!!!

That’s what … MORE …
Can sometimes … ” DO ” …

Make …. people ….

“JEALOUS” … of you … !!!!!

and make them … PULL …
” The Darkest ” … Moves … !!!!!

If you haven’t got a thing …
What’s there to … Take … ???

I guess … This View …
is not … the way …

But … look around you …
….. ” NOWADAYS ” ….. !!!!!

Can you say i’m wrong … ?
at the end of the … day … ?!?

” Some ” …
will … KILL YOU … !!!
for … ” Your Chain ” … !?!

I’m thinking …
Some folk … are … INSANE … !!!!!

Check …. ” New Orleans ” … !!!
when facing … ” Death ” … !!! …

Some … were stealing …
….. ” TV Screens ” ….. !!!!! ? !!!!!!
Instead of … Helping …
Those who … ” SCREAMED ” … ??? ! ???

Come on now folks …
See what … I mean … !?!

” Money ” … breeds …
“RUTHLESS” … ” Street Teams ” … !!!!!

Who … then do things …
that are … ” OBSCENE ” … !!!!!

” Happiness ” ….
means … MORE … to me …
than …. ” ANY SUM ” ….
of … Cash Money … !!!!!!

Times …. Right now …
have made me … SEE … !!!

Money … CAN’T …
Fulfil … My Dreams … !!!

” LESS ” …….. Murder ……..
Gives us … MORE LIFE … !!!!
and … Helps To … KEEP …
Our Race ….. ” ALIVE ” ….. !!!!!

ALL … Colour Types … !!!
from … Black to White …

” Less Division ” ….

Helps MORE … ” UNITE ” … !!!!!

and … THAT …
For Sure … !!!
is … Better than … WAR … !!!!!!

and … NOW … has made …
My Mind …. ” EXPLORE ” ….

This simple question ….

” Isn’t Less … ?
Sometimes … MORE ???”

“Progression” … A poem written by Big Virge 14/4/2006


Nowadays … when I write …
My Tension … ” Lessens ” …
which … Helps me find …
Some … ” Peace of Mind ” …

Enabling me …
To Avoid ….

” Depression ” …. !!!!!!

My writing style …
Keeps On … ” Progressing ” …

Thus … when I write …
I do … Less … stressing …

I’m now … investing …
So Much Time … !!! …

“Constructing” … sentences …
Built in …. rhyme ….
that time now seems …
to …. pass me by ….

I don’t know … why … ?
but … now my life …
Feels … Less Complex …
when I … ” Express ” … !!!
the thoughts that … REST …
inside …. My Mind ….

I’ve … NEVER …
been one …
to enjoy … a good cry …

I’d rather try …
to … ” Solidify ” …
My … ” Mental State ” …

So …. ” Contemplate ” ….
and …. ” Train My Brain ” ….
to …. ” Find A Way ” ….
to …. ” Ease My Pain ” ….

That’s … Easy to Say …
But …. ” Not To Do !!! ” ….

Especially when ….
You have …. ” Dark Moods ! ”

Moods … that can lead …
to …. ” Self Abuse ” …. !!! ….

“Intercepting” …. Progression ….

Well …..
That’s …. NOT GOOD …. !!!!!

Simple inspection …
of thoughts your collecting …
can give you … “Direction” …
and … Fuel … Your Progression …

WE ALL …
NEED TO LEARN … !!!!!

from life’s …
“Simple Lessons” …
and make … “Good Selections” …
or face … “Long Detentions” …
once judges … Pass Sentence … !!!

AIDS … keeps on progressing …
because of … ” Infections ” …
So … USE … some protection …
when getting …. ERECTIONS …. !!!!!!

and girls …..

” Take Your Time ” …

with … EVERY … New Guy …
before yes … ” Progressing ” …
To Spreading … ” Those Thighs ” … !!!

“Progression’ … is nice … !!!
when … Temperatures’ Rise …
for … ” Sexual Type Highs ” …

Especially when ….
Her Body … is … TIGHT … !!!!!

When … Everything’s Right … !!! …
Drinks by … ” Candlelight ” …
or under … ” Moonlight ” … !!! …
Way Up … in the sky …

is the kind of … Progression …
I just …. Cannot Fight ….
and that’s a … Confession …
I’ll … ALWAYS … stand by … !!!!!

But …..
Only … with women …
with … “Progressive Minds” …

I Don’t like felines ….
with … Obsessive Minds …
or those now …. Inclined ….
to sniff on …. ” Cokelines ” …. !!!!!

Relationships …. Lengthen ….
when both are … Progressing …
on …. ” Similar Lines ” ….

Opposites … May Attract … ?
but sometimes … ” Collapse ” … !!!
because of … The Fact …
that … ” Forward Progression ” …
comes easy when moving …
in YES … ” One Direction ” … !!! …

The point that i’m …
…. STRESSING …. !!!

is … have a …
…. ” Connection ” …..
with who you’re ….
…. ” Selecting ” ….

and this …
You may find … ?
Helps keep you …
” Progressing ” …

Just like … I now do …
through words I now use …
that help me …. ” Defuse ” ….
My …. ” Aggressive Moods ” ….

These days …
I look forward …
and … try to … ” Progress ” …
because of the … ” Traumas ” …
that … make me get … MAD … !!!!!!

But now …
when I get …
My Pen and Notepad …
and … start to express …

It Helps me … Progress …
by … THINKING … much more …
Therefore … ” Stressing ” …

……. much less ………….

This form of … ” Progression ”
Develops … My Strength …
and … Helps me to … DEAL …
with … ” ignorant Heads ” … !!!

It’s … working for me …
in this … Society …
of …. ” Fallacies ” ….

Built to place … STRESS … !!!
on our need to … ” Progress ” … ?

We’re … CLEARLY …
….. ” Regressing ” …..
instead of … ” Progressing ” …

Life’s … providing
….. ” Distress ” ….. !!!
and … ” Stress-Filled Tests ! ”

that … cannot be … Eased …
by the … Latest PC …
or … HD … T.V.
when so many live in …

…… ” Poverty ” …… !!!!!!!!!

What kind of progression … ?
Creates … So Much …
….. ” Stressing ” …… !?!
about …. Energy ….
and having …. Money …. !!!?!!!

Is this … ” Humanity ” … ?!?

or just a … ” Procession ” …
to … Human Life … ending …
because of …. ” Aggression ” ….
and … ” Progressive Greed ” … !!!!!

So Many … have questions … ?
that they … Want to ask …
about our … ” Existence ” …

But …..
Where do we … start … !?!

When governments now …
Refuse to … back down … !!!!!

Our leaders are … ” Messing ” … !!!
with most of … “Gods’ Blessings” … !!!

We must … !!!
Lessen Tensions … !!!!!

REMEMBER ….
that sentence …. !!!!!

If we are to … ” Strengthen ”
We Need … ” Less Aggression ” … !!!
and should … Pay Attention … !!! …
to … ” Historys’ Lessons ” …

Especially those …
that have … ” Hindered ” …

…. ” Progression ” ….

Now …. YOU MUST ….
Know … The saying …

“Opinions and Assholes,
are one and the same !!!”

Everyone’s … got one … !!!
Even if …. They are … LAME … !!!!!

” My Opinions ” … with you …

I’m just a …..
… ” Cool Dude ” …
……. with a ……..
” Bass Driven … drool …

who likes to write poetry
based on … ” The Truth ” … !!!!!

I’m Sorry … if this …
….. Doesn’t …..
” Entertain ” … you … !!!

But … ” Entertainment ” …
is … NOT … what I do … !!!!!

I’m … NOT … A …
… ” Stage Clown ” … !!!
Like … poets on … stages …
Across …. ” Different Towns ” ….

I’m Sorry … IF …
things I say …..
May … get you … ” Down ” …
or … Don’t make you … smile …
but in fact … make you …
………. ” FROWN ” ……… !!!!!!!!

My writings and … Quotes …
are … Not to … gain votes …
cos people who … ” Voted ” …
are on the … ” WRONG DOPE ” … !!!!!

Political Games ….
from the … Same …
” Shameless ” …. names …. !!!!!

What’s wrong with you people … ?!!!?
You must …. ” ENJOY PAIN ” …. ?????

Like …. Taxation riSES …. !!!
and … “Financial” … STRAIN … !!!!!
It’s like the … ” Dark Ages ” …
all over … AGAIN … !!!!! …

I’m not like these poets
who just … ” Entertain ” …

These wannabee actors
who want … TV Fame …
or rappers who really
Do Not … have the … ” Game ” …
to get themselves … “Into” …

Hip Hops’ ………… ???

… ” Hall of SHAME ” … !!!!!!!!!

No names … will I … mention …
Who hold … such … ” Pretension ” …
cos’ people like …. ” These ” …

…… ” TAINT ” ……
” Public Perception ” …

They … LACK …
TRUE … Direction … !!!!!

They’re spreading …..
…… ” INFECTION ” …… !!!

The style they … Present …
…….. REALLY NEEDS …….. !!!!!
….. “Close inspection” …..

What comes from … their lips
are … NOT … ” Witty Quips ” …

Most of their … wordplay …
is really ….. ” NOT FIT ” ….. !!!
for … ” Public Performance ” …

Their Cue …
has … NO TIP … !!!!!!!!

“Laugh” … if you like …

All that I ask ….

PURE … ” Poetic LIES ” … !!!!!

I wear … No Disguise …

My words are … ” Devised ” …
to make people see …..
what they … “hide” …
……. “Deep Inside” …….

So what’s in the mind … ?
of a poet who … rhymes …

Is it … ” Depression ” … ?!?
or … Simple … ” Expression ” …

My mind is … ” Inclined ” …
to … Share Views … with … You …

Even if … some of them …
make you feel … ” BLUE ” … !!!!!

I just … Cannot Abide … !!!!!
These poets … who … TRY … ?!?
to … “hide” … Who they are …
Behind … ” Humorous Lies ” … !?!

cos’ life is … ” A Ride ” …
from which … You …

…… ” CAN’T HIDE ” ……. !!!!!!!!!!

“Opinions” … give clues …

So …
What is … ” Your View ” … ???

Has this piece called …
…… ” Opinions ” …..

… ” Entertained ” … you … ???

I’m not here to … ” Please you ” … !!!
I’m here to speak … ” TRUTH ” … !!!!!!!

So … don’t ever think
I need a … ” Fake Crew ” …

I’m looking for people
who want ……..
Something …. ” NEW ” …. !!!

A Poet … whose words …
asks question of … YOU …

Comedy’s … GREAT … !!!!
I ……. LovvvVVVE …… !!!!! ……
A … GOOD SHOW … !!! …

But … Leave Comedy …
to … ” Comedic Pros’ ” … !!!!!

All poetry’s … DIFFERENT …
OKAY … YES ………

…… ” I KNOW ” …… !!!!!!

I’m simply … Expressing …
“My Views” … in this prose …

Can’t I do that … ?!? …
I’m walking … 8 Mile …
WITHOUT … Battle Rap … !!!!!

Now ….
If you … Don’t Want To …
You Don’t … have to … clap … !!!

I just want to … SEE …
who’s …TRUE TO … ” The Art ” …
and EXPOSE … These Poets …
who talk out dem’ …..
…….. “ CLAAT ” ……… !!!!!!!

I Don’t ……
THINK … i’m smart …
I KNOW … that …

……… ” I AM ” ……..

and if you …. ” Applaud ” ….
that must make me ….

…….. “THE MAN” …….. !!!!!

cos’ you’ve clearly enjoyed
………… READING ………..

My … “OPINIONS” …
