“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

Virge.

“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

“Evolvers” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 9/9/2013

Ya know ….

I’m down with … Problem Solvers … !!!
NOT THOSE … who use … Revolvers … !!!!!

By this I mean … ” Evolvers’ ” … !!!!!

“Logical” … Thinkers … !!!
who … DON’T Wear … BLINKERS … !!!

“Evolved” … like … ” Incas ” … !!!
who … “Peruse” … The View …
“From” …. “Machupicchu” … hues …
to blues now seen ….
in … ” New Age Crews ” … !!!!!

NOT … SO Evolved … !!!!!

NOPE …
would seem … NOT … !!!!!!!

“Problems” … Up Top …
“Evolution” …. dropped ….
for … ” Dropping Bombs ” … !!!

“Inhumane” … wrongs …
as wrongs ….. move on …..
and become … ” More Strong ” … !!!!!

I Evolve … to belong …
where wrongs … ” ABSCOND ” … !!!!!

because … what … ” Evolves ” …
are thoughts that … ” Revolve ” …

on ….. ” Cerebral Planes ” …..

Do you get what i’m saying … ?!?

Higher levels of … ” Being ”
where there is … ” No Ceiling ”

A place where … ” Believing ”
that ….. ” HIGHER ACHIEVING ”
is something …. ” ALL PEOPLE ”
are seeing ….. Each Evening ….. !!!!!

and …
Each Day … ” Receiving ”
…. “Within” ….

” ALL THEIR ” … Teachings … !!!!!

“Darwinism” …. REMOVED …. !!!
and … ” EUGENICS ” … Too … !!!!!

Instead … Stronger Movements … !!!!!
are things I be … ” Choosing ” …
to be a … ” Good Student ” … !!!
who … ” Evolves ” …

with MORE … ” Prudence ”
than … ” IGNORANT ” … Tutors … !!!!!!

See …
Evolution of … ” words ”
I put into …. ” VERSE ”
“Evolve’ … where things … ” Work ”

Even if …
They may … ” HURT ” … !!!!!

because of their … ” CLARITY ”
Revolving round … ” REALITY ”

Reality …. where …. ” VANITY ”
Denies … So Many … ” CHARITY ”

The type where people
….. RISE ABOVE …..

These acts of … “Evil” …
and show …. ” LOVE ” …. !!!!!

Instead of …. All This ….

” SELF-ABSAORBED ” … stuff … !!!

It’s CLEAR …
some have … ” evolved ”
just … far enough …
for them to … ” Absolve ”
their acts of …. ” LUST ” …. !!!!!

LUST for … Each Other …
Ahead of … Their Mothers … !!?!!

LUST for … ” Destruction ” … !!!!!
of our … Fellow Brothers …
when we … NEED … ” Constructions ”
That BUILD … and DON”T … “smother”

A way to … ” AGREE ” …
and EVOLVE … to be …

….. ” FREE ” ….. !!!!!

and find ….. ” UNITY ”
that … BYPASSES … Hatred …
in … Vapid Type … Racists … !!!
with … ” Klan Type ” … beliefs … !!!!

They NOW …
Have … ” Evolved ”
“Beyond” … Their White Sheets

It seems that their … ” Offspring ”
Now … ” RUN ” … companies … ?!?

where … colours are … ” Mixed ”
“Dissolving” … to … “FIT” …
in with … ” These Racists ” … !!!!!

NO ….

“Evolving” … THERE … !!!

because most are … ” Scared ” … !!!!!
to … Evolve … to that place …
where they’re … NOT AFRAID … !!!!!

to face … ” Retributions ”
for YES … ” Contributing ”
to such … ” Revolutions ”
that are … ” Evolutions ”

to finding … ” SOLUTIONS ”
that … INSPIRE … ” Movements ”

for …. ” EQUALITY CALLS ”
that … Benefit … ” ALL ” … !!!!!!

The Rich … and the … Poor …
cos’ … that gap … FOR SURE …

” Evolves ” … to … Ensure
That … We Can’t … ” IGNORE ”
These things … ” ANYMORE ” … !!!!!!

“Dissolving” … The Void ………………………………

where we have … ” Unemployed ”
Might Help … some … ” Evolve ”
from … Trying to … ” ROB ” … !!!

But that … ” Evolution ” …
Is NEEDED … ” In Boardrooms ”

Don’t get it … ” Confused ” … ???
to … ” EVOLVE ” …

THEY NEED TOO … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Greed Driven” … Villains … !!!!!
who … Clearly … Aren’t Pilgrims ”
who live by a … ” Faith ” …
That FEEDS … ” Empty Plates ”

They’d say that … “They Do !”
but … is that … ” The Truth ”

I don’t have an answer … ?!?
That Question’s for … YOU … !?!

Those now … ” EVOLVED ”
to think past … ” Themselves ”

who … Do Not … INVOLVE … !!!

“Pursuit” … of … Mass Wealth
as … part of the … ” Well ”
….. where their …..
” BETTERMENT ” … Dwells … !!!!!

Knowledge of … ” Self ”
that … ” Uplifts ” … The Mental

A form of … ” Self Help ”
that … ” TRULY IS ” … Central
to … ” Human Infusion ” …
of … what should be … L O O S E N E D … !!!

Our … Hold of … ” Confusion ”
that leads to … ” Contusions ”
Persecutions … ” Exclusions ”
and movements so … ” GRUESOME ”

That … they seem …

” INHUMAN ” …. !!!!!!!

The words i’m now … Choosing
DO NOT FEED … Illusions … !!!

” Upliftment’s ” … BRUISING … !!!
has left … MANY … Losing …

A hope for … ” Inclusion ”
and some … ” Distribution ”
of more than … ” Sweet Talk ” …
from …tongues shaped like … FORKS … !!!!!
that … KEEP FUELLING … ” Wars ” … !!!!!!

So ….
Here’s My … ” Conclusion ”

It’s time for … ” SOLUTIONS ”
that … STOP … ” Destitution ”
and REMOVE … What’s Polluting …
Humanities’ … movements …
Towards some … ” Improvements ”

where LESS … are … “colluding”
to seeing … MORE SHOOTINGS … ?!?!?

INSTEAD …. ” Resolutions ”
that … Provide … ” Solutions ”

That …

REJECT … Revolvers …
…. ” Suicide Bombers ” …. !!!!!!!!

and …
Moods that are … ” Sombre ”

May see … ” Problem Solvers ”

be the ones …
who we choose …

to … INSPIRE …

…. ” Evolvers’ ” ….

“Evolvers” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People ….. !!!

Having had a very calm, and quiet festive, after my …

Adventurous December … !!! … to, Pacific Coastlines and Landscapes, my first poetic offering of the year, is hopefully as inspiring, as it is, thought provoking ….

But in a more, PROGRESSIVELY EVOLVED Manner, than much that has been happening over the last few weeks …. !!!

From Paris to Nigeria bombings, to, US Madness, of a judicial & violent nature, to the, let’s say, not so evolved rhetoric, coming from the likes of Donald Trump, and his competition for the Whitehouse seat !!!!!

Anyway, from top to bottom, this is now, one of my favourites, and covers much that has occurred, and seemingly continues to occur within the ecology of Human Development …..

Take time with this one folks … !!!!!

because ….

Even if the word, ” Evolvers “, doesn’t actually exist in the Oxford, Posh Dictionary, it’s now, one of MY OWN, and what it’s inspired, reflects on much that happens in this crazy world of ours ….

Everyday …..

BELIEVE IT … !!!!!

” What Cause is it that they, REALLY, Stand For … ?!? ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 10/11/2013

Following on from my previous post, when it comes to police tactics in situations warranting use of their arrest powers …. a suitable question would be, Why Do They Do It ?

However ….

Now that Eric Garner & Mike Brown,
amongst others, have died,
due to police encounters,
and won’t be returning …

and now that ……..

Judiciary inquiries have produced,

NO INDICTMENTS … !?!

So Many … Protests !!!
So Much … Rhetoric !!!
So Much … Media Talk !!!

Well, I have another question,
for everybody in truth,
from celebs, to looters,
but, specifically for,
smart-mouthed white folks ….

and that question is ….

So … what cause is it ?
that they REALLY … stand for ?!?

because nowadays …
i’m getting … Irate …
due to … ” Fancy Talk ” …
from those … NOT POOR … ?!?

About ….

” How they help,
and can’t do more … !!! ”

or … is that … WON’T … ?!?

when they come from
……. WEALTH ……..
and … Ignorant Hoards …

Families … “FILLED” …
with … ” Separatist Wills ” …

Talking of … ” WILLS ” … !!!

What’s left for them … ???

Monetary Problems … ???
or a cause … instilled …
to change … ” Their Ilk ” …
from … ” Lusting ” … for bills …

Yen … or … Pounds … ?!?

How does that sound … ?
if you’re … ” One of Them ” … !?!

Does your cause stem … ?
from a wish to … END …

… ” Elite Ignorance ” … !?!?!

The type that … ” Defends ” …
White Men who … ” Pretend ” …

to … Give A Damn …
about … Black man …

when the truth is … THIS … !!!

Their talk is … WEAK … !!!!!
cos’ they’re … “Human Sheep” …

who THINK … their skin …
gives them … the right …
to say … What They Like … !!!
about things in sight …

As if black minds …
are … Completely Blind … !?!
to the cause of things …
When … Pressure Liks’ … !!!!!!!!

Like … it is … NOW … !!!!!

Now that things are … FOUL …
They’re …. ” CRYING OUT ” …
for … ” THINGS TO CHANGE ” … !!!

Well okay …
That’s GREAT … !!!!!

But …
” Back in the day ” …
when … ” Momma had slaves ! ”

ALL OVER THE PLACE … !!!!!

Were they … CRYING … back then … ???
for slaves …. BETTERMENT …. !?! ….

and … Educating them …
about … ” RACISM ” …

and ……
EXPOSING … THE TRUTH
about … ” Daddy’s Boardroom ” … ?!?

I’m a bit … ” Confused ” … ???
as to …. ” The Cause ” ….

They seemed to …. ignore ….
that they now …. ” IMPLORE ” ….

as if it’s … NEW …
and should be … USED … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hear … REVOLUTION …
coming from … White Lips …

Oh so …
That’s a … SOLUTION … !!!

Well …..
I’ve got to ask … THIS … !?!

When the Ku Klux Klan …
were hanging … Black Man … !!!

Were they and their fam’ … ?
Taking … THAT STAND … !!!?!!!

“Oh, that was the past !”

“Man, kiss my arse !”

Ignorance was … ” Bliss ” … !!!

Until the pinch … FLIPPED … !!!
and hit ….. ” New Skins ” …… !!!

… ” Financial Tricks ” …
” New Age ” …. Racists ….

” Politics ” … in the mix …
of … ” Corrupting Things ” … !!!

Isn’t this how … ???
it’s always been … ?!?!?

“Well, that was then !
This is now !”

are the … ” Usual Sounds ” …
that come from mouths …
who act like … CLOWNS … !!!

but are quick to … “drown” …

The sounds of thoughts
coming from black minds
as if we’re inclined …

to run …. WEAK TALK … !!!
that is … ” Biased ” … Fa Sure … !!!!

when it seems … Our Cause …
is just … ” Talk That HAUNTS ” … !!!!!

See …
They’ve always got an answer … !!!

As if they are …. ” Smarter ” …. !!!!!!!

Than blacks who take time …
to … Dis-sect … their lives …

and all their … ” Charters ” …
that have made life … HARDER … !!!

Even under …. ” Obama ” …. !!?!!

” Hypocritical Types ” …..
who … THINK … they’re cool …
cos’ they know … Black Folks … !!!
Who Enjoy … ” Their Jokes ” …

Well …..

I Ain’t … THAT BLOKE … !!!!!

and Don’t … deal in quotes …
that hold ….. NO WEIGHT ….. !!!!!

which is why they’re … AFRAID …
of the things I … RELATE …
in my ….. wordplay …..

I’m sick of them … ” Hearing ” … !!!

But NOT ……. ” Listening ” …….. !!!!!

because they’re … ” Adhering ” …
to … “limited” … Thinking …

“Limited by …”
Historical Ties …
They’d rather … DENY … !!!

as being … ” The Cause ” …
for … ” Veteran Wars ” …
and … Humanitys’ fall …

It’s NEVER … their fault … !!!

It was actually …

” The Force ” … !!!!!

“Oh, it was down to Star Wars !
wait a minute now, pause !”

Man i’ve got to laugh …
otherwise i’ll … FROWN … !!!
and decide to … TAKE DOWN …

Them and … ” Their Crowd ” …
of ….. ” KNOW IT ALLS ” ….. !!!!!

Who … ” Choose to Hear ” …
What Suits … their ears … !!!!

They … REALLY DO … !!!!!

and then … ” Run Talk ” …
when the … ” Penny Drops ” … !!!

as if they … KNEW …
what was … said before … ?!?
in talks that … ROCKED …
Their lil’ … ” Cotton Socks ” … !!!

“At the time I was wrong !
and just being headstrong !”

Well …
CLEARLY NOT … !!!!!

When they come back …

NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT … that …
They … ” Bought Into ” …
Fallacy Filled Views …
They’ve read in … ” Books ” …
or been fed … by the news …

It’s … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

We blacks should speak !!!
but … NOT ABOUT … ” Them ” … !!!!

or … ” The Cause ” …
They … DEFEND … ?!?

When they …

” Help The Poor ” …

by … doing stuff …
that’s a … ” Short-Term Fix ” …

So their … ” GUILT ” …
Can … ” Desist ” …

Well …..
Me and My … ” Chip ” …
now write … These Scripts …

that prove … ” My Cause ” …
Is NOT … about me … !!! …

But … EQUALITY …
for … EVERYBODY … !!!!!!!

Even if … i’m seen …
as the … ” Villain ” … of the piece

because it’s … CLEAR … !!!

I Really do … STAND TALL … !!!
and … DON’T MAKE … Dud calls … !!!

like those … whose actions …

” BETRAY ” … Thoughts …
that seem … ” Distracted ” …
from … This Question … Fa Sure … !!!!

“Is It Such A Crime ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/3/2006

Is it … ” Such a Crime ” … ?
to … ” Speak Your Mind ” … ?

Because ….

it … Seems to be …
if you’re … NOT WHITE …

I hear this, said …
So Many … times … !!!

“Virge, you scare folks !
with words you rhyme !”

and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

but … words I … “Quote” …
are … NOT … The Type … !!!

to … ” Start A Fight ” … !!! …

but may … ” Unsettle ” … ?!?
Those who … ” Settle ” …
to … “hide” … behind …
A … “LIE FILLED” … life … !!!

Can Someone … DEFINE … ?
Why it’s …. ” Such A Crime ” …. ?
to ….. ” Criticize ” ……
…. ” Political ” …. types …. !?!

In times like … THESE …

” FREEDOM ” … of … SPEECH …
is … NEEDED … just like poetry … !!!

if we’re to … ” Ease ‘ …
” Pain and Misery ” … !!! …
and crimes of … More …

… FATAL DESIGNS … !!!!!

“Murders” … “Rapes” … !!!
Crimes … based on … Race … !!!
and Crimes … Inclined …
To Keep … ” The Masses ” …

…………. “blind” ………….

Like Those … in … ” Folds ” …
who make ….. Mistakes …..

Do THEY … ” Pay A Toll ” … ?
for … CASH … THEY TAKE …

” Mistakes ” …
THEY SAY …… !!!

That …..
Pay for … ” Homes ” … ?!?

“It was merely, a loan,
from a chap I know !
No more questions now,
i’ve got to go !!!”

“A chap you know ?!?
can’t we know his name !?!”

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,
that, friends of mine,
help out, in times
of financial strain !?!”

“Of course not sir !
but don’t divert,
what is his name ?
and did he donate ?
to your friends campaign ?
Need I ask you again !?!
the question is
what is his name ???
Let me make it plain !
Are you quite sure
he hasn’t bought
A Peerage, and,
is now a lord ?”

“I will not answer
any more ! What
do you take, politicians for ?
Anyone would think,
our dealings, stink !”

“Well, no more than
a poor street whore
is it such a crime
to want to know more ?”

Could this be why
Government guidelines
are trying to stem
peoples’ questions !?!

If …..
Free Speech … ” Ends ” …

What’ll happen to … THEM … ???
and ……. ALL THEIR …….
” Pre-Planned ” … arguments … ?!?

It seems that … THEY …
will …. carry on ….
Airing …. views ….
Even if … They’re wrong … !?!

Isn’t that … A Crime … !???!

It would seem … NOT … !!!

So …..
How can it be a … ” Crime ” …
to …. ” Speak Your Mind ” …. ?!?

Especially when ….
You’re Proven … RIGHT … !!!

I find this … ATTITUDE …
at …. ” Poetry Nights ” …. ?!?

if you speak about … ” Your Life ” …
that seems to be …. FINE …. !!!!! ….

Or Express … FRUSTRATION … !!!
at the … State of The … NATION … !!!

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …
and they make folks …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …
and make … ” Attacks ” …

On Racists … or …
On … Western Plans …

You’re treated like …
An ….. ALIEN …… !!!!!

It must be … A Crime …
to be a ….. BLACK MAN ….. !???!

Especially when ….
you have … A MIND … !!!!!

Inclined to … WRITE …
” Poetic Rhymes ” …
that spread … ” Insight ” …

” But, SOME BLACKS DO !!! ”

“Well, if that’s true,
let me ask you who
Mr. Zephaniah ???
Okay, that’s one !
But, he’s spent time,
inside prison !!!”
I’m talking about
a black without
a history, of
dodgy deeds !!!”

I think you’ll find … ?
THAT MAN … is … ME … !!!

NO … Prison Time … !!!
has … Big Virge … SEEN … !!!

But ….
May Well … do … !!! ? !!!
for words I speak …

Even when …
My Record’s … CLEAN … !!?!!

Well ….
Clean … ENOUGH … !!!

I … HAVE BEEN …
…. ” Cuffed ” …. !!!!!
for … ” Slapping a girl ” …
For … DISRESPECTING … !!!

……… MY MUM …….. !!!!!

and ….. ” Driving Drunk ” ……

But ….

Both … ” Misdemeanours ” …
were … just the … ONCE … !!!!!
and like …. ” Benjamin ” ….
were when … I was … YOUNG … !!!!!

But …
The Point … i’m trying to make …
is … Black … ” Americans ” …
are … Deemed to be … GREAT … !!!!!

For …
Taking a … STANCE …
Against … ” Racial ” … HATE … !!!!!

WHICH … ” English Black ” … ?!!!? …
Can … Make The Claim … THAT …

They’ve Gained … RESPECT … !!!
for … Taking … THAT STANCE … !?!

What does that say … ?
about those who … CLAIM … !!!

THAT …….

“Blacks are treated,
JUST THE SAME !!!
as every other race,
on, English Shores !!!”

“Are THEY, QUITE SURE ?!!!?”

I’m NO … Malcolm X … !!!
But … DO HAVE … ” A Cause ” … !!!

My cause … ” DEPLORES ” … !!!!!!!
These … ” Government Laws ” …

cos’ … if you’re …
Black and … POOR …
You’re gonna …
SUFFER … for SURE … !!!!!

Even if …. You’re … NOT …
Police now …. “Plot” ….
to … ” Shoot You Down ” … !!!!!

or … Question you … ?
Even if … ” They Doubt ” …

THAT … You … ” ARE ” …
“THAT” … ” Drug Dealer ” … !?!

OR ……. ” The One ” ……..
who STOLE … ” That Car ” … !!!!!

Laws They … PASS …
are now … ” Pure Farce ” … !!!!

It seems … they’ve moved …
But …. NOT TOO FAR …. !!!!!!!

Away … from keeping …
Us ……….. Apart ……….

Ask Yourself … WHY … ???
are They … ” Inclined ” …. ?

to … “RESTRICT” … those …
Who … EXPOSE … Lies … ?!? …

” Creatively ” …
or … ” Otherwise ” …

Through …..
Simply Saying ….
What’s IN … ” Their Mind ” … !?!

PLEASE …..
ask yourself … ” WHY ” … ?

” Is It Such A Crime ? ”
