” Pretenders ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, quite the month it’s been people ….

All kinds of industry awards for film and music, pretenders to thrones being disappointed, whilst other pretenders to thrones, getting their props, from their peers.

In Hollywood, it’s such a farcically, perverted place, that it’s hard to truly believe that awards are given to individuals, solely based upon the quality of their, respective works, or merely because they sucked the right persons whatever, these days … !!!!!

Politically, well it seems that the Brits’ have got their noses out of joint over, alleged, covert, Russian Misbehaviour, on British Soil … ???

Now, this in turn, has garnered support from a lot of nations apparently … ???

…. and of course, the US, via it’s President, has let Vladimir, and his foreign diplomats know, that they apparently are no longer welcome, where they once were.

Also, the North Korea situation has been hitting headlines, as it appears that recent exchanges between America and North Korea, that were quite tempestuous, were no more than a lot of hot air, as, not only has Kim Jong Un, met with the Chinese Premier, President Xi Jinping, but apparently, he’s now cool with The Trumpster’, and other leaders, who seem to rather quickly be joining the queue to talk with a man who, barely months ago, was being labelled as a dangerous, out of control, tyrannical leader ….. ???

Something isn’t quite adding up people ….. ???

As comedian, George Carlin would i’m sure of suggested, the viagra seems to have worn off, and dick swinging has stopped for a while at least, so that the limp dick leaders of this world, can prove that, ” Pretense “, is indeed, along with those little pills, their greatest ally.

Also, the word is that, Donald will never get to build his wall, to keep the Mexicans out, as he so vehemently claimed he would do, on his way to the Whitehouse !

(which, as a sidetone, quickly reminds me, is Guantanamo still open ???)

Okay back to Americas’ current big shot caller ….

It also seems that he won’t get to bed, a certain, Stormy Daniels, ever again, as their relations have become somewhat strained now !

LMFAOL ….. !!!!!!

…. and of course, there’s been the customary firing of members of Donalds’, US Administration, continues to baffle and bemuse the people who keep believing that these people, that he chooses, are actually supportive of the somewhat beleaguered President.

Seems like a great many PRETENDERS, are out there, which finally leads me to the admission by David Warner, Cameron Bancroft & The Australian Cricket Captain NO LESS, Steve Smith, that the pretence of them being decent, honest, fair cricketers, has been nothing more than a rather LARGE VENEER, that also has led to their, poor old coach, Darren Lehmans’ sudden resignation, after apparently being backed by the Australian Cricket Board …… just days before ….. ???

The same Darren Lehmann who had to apologise for using racist language with regard to Sri Lankan opposition, not so many years ago, who was also quick to join Yorkshire, a county who were seemingly pressured into reversing their policy of basically, not having anybody from outside of Yorkshire, be part of their team, especially if they had a bit too much colour …. !!!!!

You had to be of Tendulkar, or Richie Richardson Levels, to have even have had a chance back in those days, let’s not forget !!!!!

Hmmmm, nice blokes these lot and it sounds like there are a great many pretenders in Australia, maybe not just confined to the upper echelons of Aussie Cricket !!!!!!

It’s so laughable that it’s seriousness may be being dismissed, as nothing more than a blot on the landscape of Australian Sportsmanship,

It’s only Ball Tampering after all, so what, they just got caught for a change … !!!!!

However, one should not dismiss the level of vitriol aimed at anyone who wasn’t whiter than the whitest cricket ball, if they were accused of cheating, without any admission of guilt, previously.

The South Africans can hardly get too upset, as Hansie Cronjes name, has to be quickly brought up, when it comes to deceitful actions surrounding cricket, in the past.

In a world seemingly filled with so many liars, cheats and thieves, this month’s piece reflects on this pastime that seems to be so popular amongst so many bods’ on this planet of ours, including just one name i’ll mention from the poem, a certain Ryan Lochte, whose behaviour in Brazil not so long ago, with other US Olympic swimmers, should serve as a very important reminder of how white pretenders get treated in comparison to us darker folks, when we are foolish enough to get caught doing things that we perhaps, shouldn’t ……

So, as much a warning as an assessment of the Pretenders we all have to face at various point in our lives ….

Check it out ……..

and remember folks, HONESTY, is the best policy, however,

ONLY BEFORE, you decide not to be !!!!!

NOT ….. The other way round !!!!!

As it’s World Cup Time, had to get some World Cup rhymes on this site ….

Although the rest of this is so far Awwwwwwaaaaaayyyyyyy from football, it is not one for the footie heads, but, for those who like their movies, especially those that delve into action & consequence and darker realms … this should be fun to read, even if you didn’t like … ” Drag Me To Hell ” ….

to make … ” The Grade ” …

” That ” …
May … in the end … ???
Decide your … Fate … !!!

” A Fate ” … that awaits ……..
” Bad-Minded ” … Traits … !!!!!

It’s …. PENALTIES SON …. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now … Such Analogies …
can be …. ” Quite Deep ” …. !?!

If you … Use Your Brain …
to do more than … ” Attain ” …

A position with conditions …
Like … Enforcement of … ” Renditions ” …
or … DENYING … ” A Petition ” …
from a soul facing … ” Eviction ” … !!!

Just to … GET TO …
” That ” … Position … !?!

Envision now … ” That Vision ” ……….

Even though … ” SHE KNEW ” …
She had a …. ” Tainted View ” ….

It was CLEAR … that this lady …

“V, it’s just a film !”

“I know that dude !
But the film was ill !”

“Okay cool, continue !”

“Thank You, I will !
See, the deal was this !
Like a Tale From The Crypt,
she received a gift, that she,
didn’t want, because of her wish,
to get this job, when she knew
she’d done wrong !”

“Okay, i’m hearing you Virge,
go on, go on !”

“Well, the plot was kinda long,
and had a lot going on !
Action and consequence,
was the message by the end,
which gave me inspiration,
to write this here poem !”

To Improve your situation …
What would you … ” Truly Do ” … !?!

Do you think that …
Lying …. BLATANT …. !!!!

You would … Choose … ???

Do you … NOT BELIEVE …

The Internet & it’s … “THREADS” … written by Big Virge 1/7/2013

Yes Yes Motha Suckas’ … !!!

What’s the word … ?!?

Well, as I am struggling to get to explain about my Philly diaries, i’ll use a … Internet Thread … I saw today, that asks what the Brits think of Americans ???

As most of the people on the thread were of Irish/British descent, hardly seemed worth adding to the fucking nonsensical rhetoric being spouted, but, it has lead to me posting a lil’ more, about Philly, in amongst other things, tonight.

Firstly, Big Up to my new, Fav female tennis player, mostly because of my old man lust for a nice young fit girl, who happens to be a pretty good tennis player, Ms. Sabine Lisicki, who, if she stays healthy, focussed & positive, may well be on her way to a Wimbledon title, YOU GO GIRL !!!

Having beaten the probable favourite, Serena Williams, in 3 today, I sense that this is her chance to grab the spotlight after what has clearly been a very difficult couple of years, having suffered some pretty horrid setbacks, injury wise. Always smiling, and seemingly, always happy to have the opportunity to do, one of the things she loves, i’m down !

…. and saying, Go Get That Trophy Girl !!!

…. of Polish & German roots, now a U.S. resident, if I was twenty years younger and around tennis circuits, oh yes, those legs …. anyway, I digress !!!

Good luck for the rest of the tourney Sabine !!!!

So, origins, and who likes and doesn’t like …. who …. ???

Well, Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love, or, is that Shuv, cha, well, whatever it is, I do think that the element of race & it’s levels of division are clear for anyone with, “Open Eyes”, to see !!!

The Yankee Doodles are far from being, as advanced with it all, as, Mr. Obama’s presidency suggests, subtle, nigger references from bar managers & their black staff, YES, F’ing Black staff, whose comments were in reference to me, indicate a subversive level of racist mentalities, that run without any kind of discussion or challenge, from, i’m sad to say, all sides, but, most definitely, in places like the very lovely, and quite plush, Radisson, down there in central Philly, around what, 17th street.

Philadelphia is a city with much history, that again, draws back to England, Charles II, and of course, William Penn, famed for Penns’ landing, and of course, Pennsylvania State right !

Well, there is proof, that, whether the English are looking at Americans, or, Visa Versa, aren’t all you the same F’ing people !?!

Oh, but ofcourse, as one white dude tried to tell me in a bar, every black baseball player, born in the U.S., is, American, well, yes that’s true, but, as I explained to him, or tried to, are they not of another origin, like say, Africa ???

… or, wherever they were transported from to be the offspring of parents, residing in the U.S., at their time of birth ???

Didn’t go down so well, especially when he insisted on showing me, I guess, in his own way, how far Philadelphia has come, due to being the last Baseball team, apparently, to use black players, to being the team famed for being where, Jackie Robinson gained much of his fame, as the new movie, “42”, will hopefully show.

…. haven’t seen it yet, but, am interested, as the monument in honour of the black leagues in Philly, is in a very small corner of a park, in a not-so-nice, part of town.

So, the slavery elements, and the historic nature of Philly, well, German Town, Dutch influxes, and of course, The Irish, en masse, have many memorials, statues, and houses preserved, to ensure that their stamp is firmly imprinted on any visitors passport as it were.

Surprised … ???

…. nah … but, in terms of it’s progressive attitude towards race relations, errrm, well, having had a coach ride in Old Town/City, I would have to say that when an Irish guy can tell me that he isn’t so sure about the whole, “Inter-Racial”, thing, but, in the same breath, can tell me how, “Even I find myself thinking on the train, that some black ass would be worth a look”, as it were, one has to wonder how far we have to go !!! Let alone, have we come ?!?

The area of Philly, that has some kind of homage to what the slaves went through, would hardly constitute, in my mind, the level of acknowledgement & recognition of suffering, that, our forefathers/mothers, went through, as black people, but hey, it was the … ” Old Days” … right, ain’t nothing to be carrying a chip about !!!!!

Maybe, if you don’t give a shit about anything other than the, “Bling”, you sporting, or, the amount of pussy/dick, that you can get of different types, regardless of the reasons why it’s becoming available now !!!

Well, the judgements continue, and I was clearly, a most intriguing attraction for the Radisson bar faithful …… for a lot of, seemingly, fear & insecurity driven, reasons, but hey, I have no issue causing a lil’, “Positive Disruption”, unlike the human church mouses running about town, serving the, well to do, mainly white folks, who, owned I believe, 99 of the 100 private condos up in that bitch !!!!!

The other was, YES, owned by black folks, well, at least we’re getting up there right ???

Hmmmm, how bad or good a sign that is, i’m not sure, when, they are mostly welcomed by black faces, who are still, in my view, highly subservient to them.

Now don’t get me wrong, I met a … “Black Woman !”, who showed me a level of that dignified attitude towards her job, regardless of who she would greet and meet, there was a fire that she possessed, that I will eternally be grateful to have felt, so, much love and respect goes to … Ms. Francine !!!

Yes … Ms. Francine !!!!!

Well, i’d happily of had her as my, Miss Daisy, just to be around a black woman, with such, inner fortitude, as I felt from speaking with her, and sharing some of my art with ….

Yes, Ms. Francine, I am still doing it and will always remember your words of encouragement, a la, Lady Gaga, of all people, but, we shall always know why …… !!!!!

Okay, on that note, i’ll leave y’all hanging …..

I have yet to get into the Nitty Gritty of Philly, but, these days, it’s a very free flow that i’m rolling with, as, so much crazy ish is going on all over this world of ours …..

Keep strong people, keep the faith and one thing I will say today …..

Stand up for what you believe in, it is, and will be scary, don’t doubt it, but, if your faith holds righteous values, you will prosper, even if, it doesn’t seem like it, initially ….

Don’t follow, for followings sake, set your trend/standard, and stick to it …..

Money can only do so much for you, your soul cannot be fed by it ….

Bless up, and yes, share that love …..

and cut out all this, English, American, whoever, Stuff ….

…. and accept the path to rising above, and seeing yourself and the rest of us all, as just being ….

“Human”.

One Love ….

Big V
