” Party ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, the World Cup Party has run it’s course !!!

France were basically worth the title, although the final wasn’t the greatest, contrary to the barefaced lies that a lot of these well paid commentators are churning out.

The dollar definitely dictates more than foreign policy, it dictates so much now, that it’s pretty crazy to see ” Allegedly ” … TOP CLASS Footballers, prove themselves to be anything but, worth the price tags they carry around with them now.

Neymar being one of those, and the less said about Brazils’ effort the better.

Don’t get me wrong, there were as ever, some truly OUTSTANDING Goals, however, to say this was one of the best World Cups’ of all time … ???

I think there are more and more people who are in need of some Thanos Treatment, because they’re making it very hard for those of us who call things as we see them, to do so, without being labelled some kind of killjoy.

It’s not that at all, but if England under Gareth Southgate of all managers, could get to the Semi Final, then maybe people need to just check this idea of how great this World Cup actually proved itself to be.

Not so great, more like adequate, is more the vibe i’m working with from what I saw.

However, hooliganism seemed to be almost non-existent !!!

Whatever is being said about Vladimir, his boys and organisers do not mess about, as was proven by the Russian Team, when suitably motivated it would seem, as well as the various parties tasked with making things run smoothly.

Since my last post, Kim, Vlad and The Queen have all spent time with the Trumpster’, as of course did Piers Morgan, his great mate, who got to chill with The US President on Air Force One !

Meanwhile Brexit’ talks are getting hotter and hotter, and parties have left Theresa’s cabinet, parties working for Oxfam have been found to be partying a little too much with certain, young Haitians … !!!!!!

Barbados now has a new party running the country, or does it … ???

The LGBT Party and Rainbow Flags have quickly found their place amongst Bajans, under our first, Lesbian Prime Minister, which of course, most people are now saying, shouldn’t, and, doesn’t matter !

Funny that, for such a religiously, conservative country …. ???

Well again, ” Apparently “… ?!?

I wonder is that the same kind of matter, that, Black Lives’, have claimed as their own ???

… Or …

The type that denies a man, any sense of dignity, upon his recognition and acceptance, that he has some black in him, as was found out by, Officer Cleon Brown in Michigan, who then filed a claim against the force for it’s racist attitude to his announcement of his black portion, which, immediately had him referred to as Kunta, as in the Roots Slave Character ….

” Lovingly ‘ , by one of his colleagues … !?!

However, the case seemed to uncover that some rather racist comments were made by Officer Brown HIMSELF, upon receiving the news … ???

Be careful what you are … ” Party to ” … folks.

Ask Macron, or some of the interior Ministers of Italy, who unashamedly are adopting very, i’ll say, right wing attitudes towards migrants.

Spike Lee ranted about it not so long ago, but something as ridiculous as Brexit’, has bred a mentality that America had no problem embracing, and it isn’t unreasonable to suggest that much of Europe, whether publicly or behind closed doors, seem to be not as far left of, as many might claim, thus, I had to re-record this piece and drop it one more time before anything is finalised, if it actually ever will be when it comes to Brexit’ !!!!!

Please people, as is said in this piece, these days, prob more than ever before, you REALLY Need to Party … SMARTLY … !!!!!

Soon to be released off the, ” On The Virge Album “, where these words have received some very different treatment, musically, so, take a listen folks …..

and ……..

as recently re-recorded

Party ……

“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.

Full of . . . . “JOKES” . . . . !

TECHNOLOGY’S, in the news again !

A SAT NAV, system on a coach, directed the driver to the wrong town !!!

Unfortunately, as the coach was destined for a town in … FRANCE !!!
It would seem a bit funny that the coach ended up in . . . . . . . . . .

WAIT FOR IT . . . .

. . . . . “BELGIUM” . . . . ! ! ! . . . . .

Looks like the passengers, “Shopping trip !”, was cut rather short, and turned out to be a “PAID FOR” . . . . technological tour, of a place they, DIDN’T PAY TO SEE … !!!

So much for the benefits of technology in this instance !!!

A fourty year old woman is feared drowned, because she dived into a river in Dorset, to save, her dog !!!

Now saving your pet is … ONE THING … !!!!
Putting, “YOUR LIFE”, on the line, to do it,
Now that’s, SOMETHING ELSE !!!!!!
