” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

“Brutal” … A Poem written by Big Virge 22/11/2006

Some people choose
to take the view
that words I use
are … Too …

…. ” BRUTAL ” …. !!!!

because of things
I say through scripts
that clearly hit
what’s … ” Sensitive ” … !!!

Respect for … Each Other …
Regardless of … ” Colour ” … !!!

Single Mothers ….
Suckers who choose …
to drive in … ” Hummers ” … ?!?

Political moves
that are … “kept” …

… “well covered” … !!!!!

Well ….
Simple … Truth …
FRIGHTENS … a pool … !!!!!
of …. Multitudes ….
who … choose to infuse …

” DistoRTed ” … news … !!!

That … tries to … Confuse … ?!?
and … Divert … our views
from …. ” REAL ISSUES ” …. !!! ….

My Poetry … moves …
like … Dancers’ Shoes …

So … Yes … It’s True …
It … “Entertains” … A few …

So ….
Why do some choose … ?
to say … “It’s Brutal ” … ?!?

When ….
Searching for … TRUTH …
is … Nothing New … !?! …

Yes ….
It can upset … ” Clans ” …
of … Ignorant Mans …
Who … ” understand ” …
instead of … OVERSTAND … !!!
The ways we’re … “Trapped” …
by … ” Divisive Plans ” …

It’s time for a … ” Change ” … !!!
to the … Rules of the Game …
which is why I say … !!! …
The things … I say … !!! …

Isn’t it …. okay …. ???
to sometimes … FACE …
the things that …
make you … ” Feel Afraid ” … ?

From … ” THE TRUTH “…
You Can’t … RUN … !!!!!

So why choose … ” Abuse ” … ?
That … Strikes you … Dumb …
and … Leaves you … Numb … !!!

I’m NO … ” Tom Thumb ” … !!!
and … Don’t Believe …
In …. ” Shooting Guns ” …. !!!!!!!

But …
My Poetry clearly ….
leaves some … STUNNED …
and makes them feel like …

…. ” Life’s NO FUN ” …. !!!!!!!

Well ….
Life is … LIFE … !!!
Good Times … Bad Times …
… ” Unbelievable Crimes ” … !!!!!

Designed by minds ….
of …. EVIL TYPES …. !!!!!

So
Why … Try to Deny … ???
Life’s lows and … HIGHS … !?!

So Brutal … NO … !!!!!
My use of … prose …
is built … to show …
Life’s … HIGHS and … lows … !!!

Ofcourse … Sometimes …
I like to …. JOKE ….
through things I quote …
in rhymes I write …

But …..
Come On Now … !!!
… ” Current Times ” …
are … NOT … so nice … !!!

All you have to do …
is just … Look Around …

” Brutal Crews ”
are in … Most Towns … !!!

The … ” Ultimate Prize ” …
is Far from …………….. Sight …. !!!!!

Love and … Peace …
within … our streets …

Prosperity and … Harmony …
for you and … me …
and YES … for …

… ALL HUMANITY … !!!!!!!!!!

But ….
such a … Goal …
seems … Hard to reach … !?!
when we … Impede …
…. ” MORE UNITY ” …. ?!? ….

” Divisions ” … Lead to …
… ” Big Collisions ” …

while … My Poetry …
INSPIRES … ” Visions ” …

So … BRUTAL … NO …
Take a minute … and …

…… LISTEN …… !!!!!

My Written … Inscriptions …
Provide … Prescriptions …
for things now seen as …
” Impossible Missions ” … !!!

See …
It’s … Down to … YOU … !!!
and … Down to … ME … !!!
to face … TRUTH …
and …. ” REALITY ” …. !!!!!!!!!!!

Improprieties …
and … Impossibilities …
Fuel … ” Poetic Speech ” …
in people … like me …
who … want to see …
More People … FREE …
from … Poverty …
and Policies … of …

…… ” Fallacy ” …….

Belief and … FAITH … !!!
Can help us … change …
and … ” Relegate ” …

“Those” …. Heads of State …
who choose to … DICTATE … !!!!!

to a place where … No-one …
Sees … ” Their Face ” … !!!!!

or … Listens to things …
They have to … ” say ” … !!!

” They ” … deal in …
MUCH … ” Brutality ” … !!!
whilst … ” Controlling ” …
….. ” Society ” …..

What’s …
Good for … THEM
causes …. PROBLEMS …. !!!!!!

Problems … we now …
NEED TO … ” Stem ” … !!!!!

” Violence ” …..
in … women and men …
and now … ofcourse …
in … ” Many ” … children … !!!

But these issues …
are … ” Nothing New ” … !!!

We’ve … simply found …
Some … ” Fancy Tools ” … !!!
To Prove … the things …
some humans … do …

But …
It’s … NEVER TOO LATE … !!!
to make a … ” Change ” …
if we learn to make … ” GOOD ” …
The mistakes … we make …

” Forward Thinking ” …. Brains ….
would say ….. ” The Same ” ….. !!!!!

But yes … sometimes …
We Express … through … PAIN … !!!

Nonetheless … our minds …
are … ” Mostly Primed ” …
to … ” Set things Straight ” … !!!!!

Through the things that …
…. ” We’re Saying ” …. !!!! ….

” Society’s ” …. DRAIN ….
is … Humanity’s GAIN … !!!!

If we choose to learn from …
Mistakes … we’ve made …
and … Choose to … REFRAIN …
from repeating them … AGAIN …

We may then … see a world
of …. ” Brighter Days ” …. !!!!!

As a poet whose views …
” Reflect ” … what’s … TRUE …

It would clearly be ……. ?!?

….. ” Unusual ” ……

to write about … Life …
without sometimes …

being … somewhat …..

…….. ” BRUTAL ” ……. !!!!!
