” Keep It Real !!! ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, it’s that time for me to drop some more, rhyme driven insights, on the world, and how we humans deal with living in it …..

So this month’s spoken word offering deals with a NOT SO Popular, or frequently used saying from back in the day …..

Hip Hop Inspired, in many ways, ” KEEPING IT REAL ” ….. has been used in so many ways now, that it goes WAY Beyond, those three words …..

These days, it’s pretty clear why the saying doesn’t hold as much what ???

I guess …. ” Swag ” …. in the world we live in today.

(Excuse my mis-appropriation of the term young’ guns !!!)

Simply, because the majority of people clearly, DO NOT, keep things real, from their talk, to their actions …….

A worrying trend when you look at the fact that we are a long way down the line of human history, so, I for one, would like to think that people would recognise the value of ACTUALLY, ” Keeping It REAL “, from beginning to end……

However, there are some issues with doing so now aren’t there … ???

The threat of some kind of public law being broken, to the point where imprisonment, at the least, could come your way !!!

Like say, Irish Landlord, Fergus Wilson, check his story out.

He’s been, Keeping It WRONG, on SO MANY LEVELS … !!!!!!

A Very Wealthy, and Prominent landlord in the United Kingdom !!!

He’s kept it VERY REAL, when telling one of his letting agents to stop, ” Coloured People “, from renting his homes, which he seems to think is okay, but that’s a whole different deal !
He has denied being racist, of course, and chose to defend himself in court, where he was advised to ditch such a policy, as it is discriminatory !!!!!

Now, I was told a long time ago, better the devil, or, racist you know, than the one that you don’t !!!

Mr Wilson’s assertion, that his comment about curries stinking out his properties, is “Political Correctness gone mad”, may not actually be, that far off the mark, but hey, that’s the way these days, you gotta be careful what you say right ?!?

Unless of course, you happen to be a President, or, any other description of a world leader ???

Hmmm … and how real are they eh ???

A question for another day, but, another one is, when one of these, ” Leaders “, starts to REALLY, ” Keep It Real “, in their talk, what do the masses choose to do ?

CRUCIFY them, for exposing who they really are …

(Unless You’re Bill Clinton of course ?!?)

….. Or, as seems to be the case now, be accused, from the ladies perspective mainly, of abusing them for, being well, REAL, even if it is in some VERY SLEAZY, and Disrespectful ways …. !!!!!

Depending on where your moral compass lands though right ???

So, quickly, let me just drop a view views on these harassment cases, from HollyWOOD, cos’ NUFF WOOD, LOL …. Seems to be being, thrown about that world, as it does, Britain’s corridors of power !!!!!

Surprised, well, I have to say that it’s about time we heard some folks, ” Keep It REAL, when it comes to what goes on, in Political Offices like Whitehall, and elsewhere.

It’s clear that homosexuality isn’t alien to Politics, but the disturbing nature of quite a few MP’s, arrangements to get sex, and now, their treatment of women, does indeed, leave much to be desired.

However, back to Hollywood, as much as I will at some point be thrown under the bus for expressing this view …. but, it’s my truth, in terms of how I see these accusations.

Okay so, yeah, I have to believe that certain accusations have been dismissed firstly, by the police in certain cases, because there are instances that have come to light, that have indicated that they have done this with paedophile claims and others, over the years, however, there has to be some assessment of where these claims are coming from …..

Actors and ACTRESSES …..

AKA as …. Pretenders, or one could go as far as to say …..

PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, Highly Paid Liars …. !!!!!

YEAH, I Said It …. LIARS ….. !!!!!!

Now, let me MAKE CLEAR, I am NOT suggesting, that every claim that has been made, is some kind of lie, however, what I am saying, is that in an industry based on ….

ElevATING the level of ATTENTION, an individual receives, I Repeat, ATTENTION, that people receive, and clearly, YEARN FOR, for their ability to again, ” PRETEND “, to be something, or, SOMEONE Else……

Well, one has to at least, question, the volume that have … ALL OF A SUDDEN, started to spring up, from here, there and everywhere, Cosby, Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, and a number of Politicians, to start with … ???

Have you noticed a theme with these people though ……

Well, let me point you in a few directions ….. with a few questions … ???

Poverty …. Ummmmm’ NAH …..
NONE of the ACCUSED are, some Tramp of Road !!!
A Reputation for Honesty & Integrity … Errmmm’, Note I Said POLITICIANS as well so Uh Uh.

Wealth ….. Ummmmm’ ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!
Power …… Ummmmm’ ….. NO BRAINER ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!

Influence ….. Well, in terms of career, all the above could certainly be said to have at least got connections to the fast lane to fame, or, a route to power … !!!!!

And THAT WORD ….

” FAME “, is a very, SIGNIFICANT one in these scenarios !!!!!

and finally, the time lapse between these TERRIBLE Things, Including RAPE, being declared, as what occurred !!!!!!

Now, as said, the victims will, in many cases state that, as previously suggested, they were NOT, taken seriously !

As said, it’s ridiculous, in my view, to think that this didn’t happen to a good set of victims, however, if my … PERSONAL SPACE, was imposed upon like that, there is NO F’ing WAY … I REPEAT …..

NO F’ING WAY….. !!!!!!

I’m gonna let that lie for 20 years, and then because of some new wave of impersonal messaging, sent via modern tech, use THAT, as a platform to wage some kind of … ” Bandwagon War “, against something, that, as claimed, was such a TERRIBLE Thing, that it DESTROYED MY LIFE, as some have suggested it has done …..

Even though ???

….. in the case of these Hollywood Victims, they not only, ” Kept MUM “, as in, “quiet”, but then, CONTINUED to work in this industry, where, as now seems to be the case, this type of behaviour is prevalent, due to the predatory nature of it’s members.

Hollywood is a very, ” Special Club “, and i’m pretty sure that women KNOW THAT, who join it, child stars get a pass, however, Mummy and Daddy of said stars, not so much !

Don’t play dumb, when you read the stories, hear the rumours, and see certain things going on …. KEEP IT REAL eh ….. ?!?

ESPECIALLY with, your children … !!!!!!

However, a quick word for those accused, as a man who, in a working environment, has been accused of sexual harassment once, here is why I hold the views I do, and can say what I have previously.

A Young Female, let’s say, tried this, ” Harassment Claim “, because she WASN’T, getting the attention she CLEARLY WANTED, from me, but when she did, it became an issue when I explained that, in her case, walking about, exposing your thong in an office, encourages such thinking in Red-Blooded, young males, who unlike Weinstein and them, are tall and muscular.

So, off she trots to her boss to give the big sob story ???

Now, him being, one of those males who adheres more to being feminine, than being manly, without question, decides to run to TOP MANAGEMENT, one of whom I had been told, was a bit of a racist, to expose my e-mails to this well, female … who, if I had flipped the script, could of accused of Harassment, due to various, more subtle ways of doing so ?!?

However, of course, My Job and Career, if such a thing was affirmed, could have been irreparably damaged, but, concede to the threat ???

Uh Uh …
NOT … THIS MAN …

I told my boss, do whatever, my position is the same as the e-mails state, fire me if they see it her way !!!

Now, one has to remember the pressure that such a claim puts on a brain, but hey, I continued to work for a while with this hanging, only to be told a week or so later, that, having read my mails, the BIG Bosses, apparently told my boss that,

“Virgil is right and to be honest, we’re glad he told her straight, so, tell him we’re dismissing her claim, and he has nothing to worry about !”

Now I get that there were a lot of males in this scenario, but hey, the first one who heard the claim, didn’t blink, before pushing it higher up the office management chain, without question !!!

So, back to the Hollywood lot, a good few of these women are older now, ad may even be seeking some attention to regain some spotlight, it’s not beyond reason to think that this could apply to some of these claimants, and, as for the guys, well, guys are probably equally, if not, more likely to keep quiet for fear of what that will say about them, let alone, the idea that another male abused them sexually, so there is more to the idea that …… Anyone …. !!!!!

…… be they, the female in my scenario, who may I note, in the same office, a year or so later, ended up working on my floor, and quickly made peace with me, as soon as I approached and suggested that we, ” Play Nice ! “.

In her case, just a bit of attention sorted her in the end.

However, there is proof that people, and, in this case, yes I mean predominantly women, can say or do things to cover their own, poor movements & choices, because it’s not been unusual to hear certain victims state that they didn’t say anything, due to the FEAR of what it might do to their career … ?!?

… which again. leads anyone with some common sense, to see that the level of … ” Apparent Abuse “, was and has been known about, and evidently, seen as acceptable within the Hollywood Ringer ….

up to now at least …..

and thus, this month’s piece, explains how I see the fraudulent manner in which, such an APPARENTLY, RIGHTEOUS expression, has been ABUSED, by more than actors and actresses, and their fraternity of FAKERS, but by, ” Road Man “, ” Gyal “, and basically, pretty much everyone who dared to run the phrase, as if they ever lived their life in it’s entirety by …

” Keeping It real ” ….

I Think NOT.

…. and the way that Evidence & Accusations keep surfacing currently, it’s pretty clear that the expression has drifted into the backwaters……

…… because ………

” Keeping It Real ” …. is being … SLAUGHTERED … !!!!!

So, take a listen,
if you think you’re righteous enough …. ?!?

“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 ……. !!!!!

“Why are you being … Such A Sphincter ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 24/8/2006

I’ve seen them come …
I’ve seen them … ” GO ” …

Many of … “THEM” …
Claim to … ” Write Prose ” …
and … some of them … “attempt” …
to host …. ” Live Shows ” ….. !!! …..

“Spoken Word”

Many of them …
Really Should … STAY HOME … !!!!!

Instead of making …
” Ridiculous ” … quotes … !?!
That Clearly … SHOWS …

“I say, I say !!!
Have you heard, that tune ?!?

“So now, you’re down !

I said to her ….

“These human sphincters

I’ll write a script
that, lyrically flips,
and sheds some light,
on these, Bourgeois Types,

Money won’t make …
People … LIKE YOU … !!!

It’s …
How you … LIVE … !!!!!
and the things … You Do …
that in … ” The End ” …
WILL ….. ” Define You ” …..

All the … Money you make …
Doesn’t … Make you … great … !!!!!

” These Days ” …..

There’s … SO MUCH MORE … !!!
….. ” AT STAKE ” ….. !!!!! …..

Like … ” Finding Love ” …
in a world of … HATE … !!!!!

We Need to …
” FEED Young Brains ” … !!! …
As Well … as … ENTERTAIN … !!!!!

and Dispense with … ” HATE ” …
on the basis of …. ” Race ” …. !!!!!

It seems … ” These Days ” …
that … My Style of … Wordplay …

Isn’t … deemed to be worthy …
of a …. ” Minimum Wage ” …. ?!!!?

But ….
That’s OKAY … !!!!!

when I reach … “Old Age” …

I’ll be …
Proud to say … !!!

That I Didn’t … COMPROMISE … !!!

” My Love ” …
for …. THE ART …

Just to be a … ” Pop Star ”

Or … For RICHES …
Or … For FAME ….

There’s …..
SO MUCH MORE … to this … !!!!! …
than … ” Writing Scripts ” …

” Just to …. Get Paid !!! ”

As a follow up to …. “Be Careful With Them !” …. “Opinions”, a poem written by Big Virge 27/06/05

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

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

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

Now … If this is … TRUE … ?!?

I think I should … ” Share ” …
” 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 …
” Cry ” … if you like …

All that I ask ….
is … some time to …
…… ” Recite ” ……

You may be surprised … ?
by prose i’ve … Comprised …

BELIEVE …. !!! …..
when I … Tell You …
My Words ……

” AREN’T … Contrived ” … !!!!!!

My Poetry’s … written …
from … ” Everyday Life ‘ …

While Many … are writing …
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” …

Peace y’all …. and like the title says ….

Be careful with em’ yeah …..

Later.
