” A Better Way ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 12/2/2008

There … HAS TO BE … !!!

A … ” Better ” … Way … !!!

There … HAS TO BE … !!!

A … ” Better ” … Way … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A ….. BETTER WAY …… !!!!!

Than how we’re … ” Living ” …
……. ” Nowadays ” ……. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO … Forgiving …
Minds … Dis-placed …

Thinking Things …
That … Lead to … HATE … !?!

Drug Induced …
cos’ … That’s The … ” Juice ” …
That … New Age Crews …
are now … Into … !!! …

OTHERS … Too … !!!
Now think it’s … ” Cool ” … ?

To … Live their lives …
HIGH ON …. Denial … ?!?

There … HAS TO BE … !!!
A … Better Way … !!!

To … Nurture Seeds …
Inside … ” Our Brains ” …

MORE ….
Depth of Mind … !!!

WITHOUT … The Lines …
May … Help you … MORE …
I Think … You’ll Find … !?!

Less … thought of war …
MORE …. Thoughts of Peace …

MORE … Thoughts of Warmth …
Less … coldness PLEASE … !!! …

Turn down … ” fallacies ” …
So that … we can … SPEAK …
About the things … we all …

…….. Believe ………

Lessa … dividing … !!!
and … colliding … !!!

MORE … Combining …
Those who … STAND …
for MORE Than … Grands …

So that … We Can …
Build … SOLID Plans …
That PROTECT … Our Lands …
From … ” Harmful ” … Hands … !!!!!

UNITE … Humans …
From … DIFFERENT Strands …

” The Game’s ” … to … PLAY
NOT … Desecrate … !!!!! …

It’s … NOT OKAY … !!!
To … HATE A … ” Race ” …
because they … Move …
Differently … to YOU … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A … ” Better Way ” …

Come On …
It’s TRUE … !!!!!

Just ….
THINK It … Through …

Less fights ………………………………………………………. in sight …….
Would be …. ALRIGHT …. !!! ? !!!

and may … HELP You …
Feel … SAFE at Night … !?!

Unless you’re … COOL …
with life … These Days …

If you are … OKAY … !!!

But let’s get things … STRAIGHT … !!!
Things are NOT … Okay Today … !!!!!!!!!

RISING … Hate …

Less … Youthful veins …

MORE LIES … than … ” Faith ”

That … Make me … THINK … !?!

There … HAS TO BE …
BETTER WAYS …. to live … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and YES … Okay …
A …. BETTER WAY … !!!

It’s just … Wordplay …
at the … End of the Day …

But …
THINK About …
The things I … Say …

And ….
Things now …. FOUND …
to be … DISPLAYED …
by people … “Bound” …
by … what they … FACE …
in Todays … ” New Age ” …

A world … WITHOUT …
Millions of … Pounds …

EXCEPT for … ” Those ” …
Who … Gave them roles …
that fed … ” False Hope ” …
and … ” Ropes for ” … DOPES … !!!!!

On which to … CHOKE … !!!!!!

Okay … THAT Quote …
May ROCK … Some Boats …
But … NOT in ways …
That … Systems SHAKE … !!!

Systems … ” Built ” …
to CONTROL … Wills …
and … LOCK THEM … “down” …
Like … MANY Now … !!! …

MANY … MORE …
Than … Years before … !!!

So Now the … HOARDS …
APPLAUD … ” The Cause ” …

But REALLY … ” aren’t sure ” … ?!?
What they’re … Clapping For … !?!

Because they … ” Choose ” …
to … AIR … The View …

That ……

“Everything’s cool, but i’m feeling you !”

“If you’re feeling me ?
Do something dude,
and face what’s true !
Then maybe we,
can see less bleed,
and more succeed in
finding peace !”

Less room for … “greed” …
and … “Fallacies” …

MORE SPACE for … Plates …
and … Equality …

So that … ONE DAY …
We ALL … Can Feed …

” Our Family ” …..

HUMANITY ….. !!!

I speak sometimes …
Within … my rhymes …

About … UNITY …
But right now it’s … EQUALITY …
I’m trying to … GET … !!!

cos’ it …. seems to me …

If … I’ve got … ONE …
and You’ve got … ONE …

What we fighting for … ?!?
We’re both still … POOR … !!!

Did …
That Line …. STUN … !?!

Were you thinking … GUN … ?!?

See ….
That’s the thing ….

It’s our … ” Thinking ” …
That … NEEDS TO … Equate …

So that Balance is … DISPLAYED …
in … ALL OUR WAYS … !!! …

Now that’s … PRETTY DEEP …
EVEN for … Me … !!!!!

“Whoa, now i’m SCARED !”

So I think that’s where …
I’ll let … My Pen …
Now Find … The End …

MORE TIME for … Patience ………
Less spent on … ” Ignorance ” … !!!!!

MORE … Upliftment … !!!!!
Less time for … “despair” …

MORE … Commitment … !!!!!
Less … “I Don’t Care” …

Less thoughts of … “Hate” …
and division of … Race … !!!!!

Less …
LUST for … ” Fame ” …
and a … ” Blinged’ Out ” … Range … !!!!!

What More … can I say … ?
Well … LESS … Gun Play … !!!

Cos’ there … HAS TO BE …

” A BETTER WAY ” ……. !!!!!!!

“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 …..
