Connecting those dots…. Written & Performed by Big Virge

So folks, what a month, and what is on the horizon eh … ?!?

Well, as people have been partying it up, in Barbados, with the odd exception, the mood is very different elsewhere …..

El Paso & Ohio, are dealing with tragedies, of the mass shooting variety, yet again in America !!!

One shooter, who seems to have shot his own sister !?!

I mean SERIOUSLY, Like, WTF is going on in some peoples minds right now … ?!?

Clearly, not so many good things, in some cases, but these days, the conversations i’m hearing, seem to be reflecting the same thing, people acting up, and the general vibe of folks not being particularly cool, in fact, it’s becoming the opposite in a worryingly, increasing number !

The disturbing news from the UK, is the case of a 6 year old child being thrown, YES THROWN, from the 10th floor of The Tate Gallery in London, by, allegedly, a 17 Year Old !!!

The less said about that, the better.

So, moving on, July brought the rise of Boris to PM …..

OH DEAR …. !!!!!!!!

England just had to get their version of Trump in place, to work with the man who is just, throwing insults around, willy nilly, whilst finally obtaining funding for his wall, from the supreme court, even if only temporarily, for now.

Brazil prison riots, Hong Kong and Russia protests, immigrants under fire in Germany, where Walter Lubke, a politician who spoke out for migrants, suddenly ends up dead, after his views were found to be, being shared on right wing websites !!!

Some dots need connecting there it seems, as they do in the case of Charlie Rispoli, the officer who felt the need to say that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, should take a round, as in, get shot, presumably for not being one of The Presidents, biggest fans !?!

Okay, so, what about the husband, who, because of his wife being away with work, thought he’d go on Tinder, only to find his wife was on there already !!!

Funny, in that sick kind of way…. !!!

…. Unlike the situation that has found, Fulham player, Cyrus Christie, alleging that his sister was struck and racially abused, by get this, Fulham supporters, at one of their games … ?!!!?

The stories of woe seem to be endless these days, however, not so much attention seems to be being shown, to the Ebola situation in The Congo !?!

Africans dying …..

Ahhh, that’s not such a big deal to most people, especially in the western world though right … ?!?

They’ve got more important things to worry about, like migrant controls and Brexit’ right !!!!!

Well, I don’t think that it’s something that should be swept under the rug, quite so quickly, because the suggestion is that, over half the cases in the country are not even diagnosed, as of yet … !!!

Well, as Trump says, who knows what to believe from news reports nowadays eh ???

However, if the death toll rises, what will people be saying about this situation, which has already been branded by the, World Health Organisation, as being, ” A Public Health Emergency of International Proportions “, whatever that means, in months, or, years to come … ?!?

Right about now, there are a great many disconnects, globally, in how humans are treating one another, let alone, with the systems that are supposed to keep order in place, both socially and economically, as per the Deutsche Bank Job Losses ….

Things are definitely rocky, when bankers are being sent home folks, take note … !!!!!

So, this weeks piece speaks on a few the reasons why I think we need to ……

Connect The Dots … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People, well, in my world, time feels like it’s flying by !!!!

The season of … Apparent …

” GOOD WILL ” … is upon us folks …

So, for those who indulge, ENJOY !

However, for those less concerned with the whole, Christ Mas’ … Fest …

I’m gonna end this year by connecting a few dots in this poem,

However, before doing so,

Well DAMN, what a year eh folks ?!?

To be honest, so much has gone on, that I can’t recollect too much without sifting through my mind, which I am far too old and tired to do, but what I will say is that from Brexit’ to Trump, to Hollywood Abuses, Government Abuses, Sports Abuses, and basically, ABUSES coming to light from all kinds of places !!!!!

It’s actually nice to see people embrace this time to connect with others in hopefully, Warmer Ways … !!!!

I’ve made some interesting connections this year … Fa’ SURE … !!!!!

Some, that have been fruitful, and quite shocking in terms of whom I have connected with, and others that have been less fruitful, but, equally as important in terms of my personal development, and my ability to connect with the people I’d …. Like to be connected with, for the foreseeable at least.

However, disconnections have also occurred, that have shocked, disturbed and even angered me for sure !!!

Much like many of the more, Serious and i’d suggest, MORE IMPORTANT happenings, that have come to the fore in these last 12 months.

Sadly, these other matters cannot just be swept away, and amongst other global matters that seem to be disconnecting, more than, connecting people. This final piece of the year from me, touches on where we seem to be, disconnecting, instead of protecting the ideal of ….

Keeping the finite dots that we,
Human beings are, in this universe,

…….. CONNECTED ……..

Check It … and stay blessed for the festive and the next few, and stay Connected people …..

One Love.

The Virge.
