“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

Election Week, so, a good time to speak on … ” Cliques ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

So, after last month, speaking on the lack of certain things, this month I speak on something, we could probably do with a few less of … !!!!!

Now, I never really was one for, fitting into them …..

However, of course, like most young men, I ran with a crew or two, but, always felt that the dynamic held, hidden agendas, ulterior motives, and invariably, a lot of suckers and, lying Motha’ F’kers …..

Not much has changed in my opinion, from artistry, to a great many things in this world …..

So, for this subject, even though I wrote this, basically, ten years ago, it’s content is pertinent and relevant, especially as it’s been quite a year for the exposure of many of these collectives, The BREXIT Cliques, JOKERS … !!!!!

The FIFA Cliques, of the seemingly, money grabbing, embezzling, deceitful members, of it’s hierarchy ….

The Drug Cheat Cliques, and their cohorts ….

The … INCREDIBLY Deceitful, Ryan Lochte, Clique … Tut Tut Tut ….

The Paedophile Cliques of the BBC and seemingly, much further afield in the, apparently, not so … ” Uni ted ” … Kingdom ?!?

(Again -JOKERS !?!)

The EU Clique ….

The … Of course, “Black Lives Matter” ….
and …. ” ALL Lives Matter ” … Cliques …

ISIS, Terrorist Cliques, and the cliques that, THREATEN, Western Freedoms & Liberties…. whatever they are ….

Which of course, brings me to … The Police …

A Clique who work to preserve our freedoms and safety, well, if you believe that, then you are probably part of the Trump, and ….

Hold on … Wait a minute, Clinton Cliques too … !!!!!!

So, for most people, it would seem that, they fit into one or t’other of these cliques ….

I’m happy to be part of a … “very small clique” … !!!

Well, a virtually, non-existent one, who wants to use artistry to expose these Fukwits …. for what they are … SHEEP … or, better defined, SHEOPLE’, who bleat, more than they, claim their …

INDIVIDUALITY ….

So, as we are in the heat of US, Presidential Election week, in the, again, CLEARLY ….

NOT SO …. Uni ted …..
States of America …..

Due to their, Democrat & Republican Cliques,
(Both being, JOKERS who embrace the use of … BIG GUNS, BOMBS and, BIGGER EGOS !!!)

This piece would seem to fit perfectly with much that we’ve seen in 2016 …. and sadly, throughout, human history …

” Cliques ” …..

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

Okay people, so, as a follow up to my last post ….

Here’s proof that people, in fact, sadly, mostly those claiming to be artists, are PUSSIES … !!!!!

YUP …. I said it ….

PUSSIES … !!!!!

They are normally quick to run for cover, when heads speak freely about the world and it’s woes, or better still, people and their willingness to be penned in like sheep !!!

It’s incredible how they, and obviously, those who claim to appreciate, freedom of expression and artistry, are quick to distance themselves from anything that is remotely, anti-establishment …..

or ….

Art that has, NOT BEEN DONE, for people to say that … “They Love It !”

or, even worse still …..

because it’ll get them a pay cheque ….

These are the same fuck-holes, who are quick to claim that they …

” Keep It Real ” … with their art ?

Hmmm …. What a CROCK !!!

Imma’ hit that, ” Keep It Real ” … subject, down the line, but, as said in my two previous posts …

If Donald Trump can wantonly, speak on things in such an unabashed fashion, and not have to deal with the ….

“Expression Police” … as it were …

…. who want to restrict, and deny exposure, to the type of artistry, that this kind of piece represents, one where frank and honest assessments are expressed, that can actually be validated, rather than debated, and then dismissed as some kind of conspiratorial nonsense …..

Then … SO CAN I … !!!!!

So, once again ….

Pussholes’ …..
should leave this alone … !!!!!!

The rest of you, well, I hope you pay close attention to what you hear, and pass this on to those who you know, can deal with talk that is REAL !!!!!

…. because ….

compared to Trump, Cameron & the rest of their ilk of Political Figureheads ….

These words are actually, contrary to the title,

FAaaaaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRR ……… from being …….

BRUTAL …….

Abused women everywhere : Take Note !

Now folks, I am a man who does not believe in ism’s of any kind, be it Racism, Feminism, Chauvinism, or any other ism’ …. that separates, divides, or abuses, another human beings, basic, civil rights !!!!!

However, there is maybe one ism ….

I get down with …

and it’s …. REALISM …. !!!!!

and … THIS ….
is … Pretty F’ing REAL ….. !!!!!!

Great concept & the video is one you NEED TO … PAY ATTENTION to ….. !!!

Just found out about this young artist, and her artistic collective ….

And … as she says ….

It’s not about them, or any artist, defining themselves by gender, it’s just about being …. An Artist ….

Ideally one, who uses artistry, to reflect the realities, good and bad, of how we, as humans, interact with each other …..

Again, the video is as important, in this case, as the lyrics and music !!!!!

So, take 5 minutes out of your day, to take in something, worth the watch ….

Shay D people.

Another Hard Hitter from Supastition !!!!!

There are certain brands of … ” Terrorism ” … that don’t seem to garner quite the same level of disgust/attention, as others, and indeed, are perpetrated by those very same bodies/individuals, who are quick to label themselves as victims of such acts ….. when the shoe is on the other foot … !?!

So, before you get to caught up in the now, take a moment and think back, before suggesting these attacks are a disgrace to the human race and should not be tolerated …

Hmmm …. if only that was the case from the dawn of time ….

I wonder whether we’d have a very different world today … ???

I guess we’ll never know eh folks … ?!?

Well, I like most, do not condone acts of a terrorist nature, but, that opinion applies to ALL acts of terror, including those of the past, and the present, that should not be so easily dismissed, because the media couldn’t give a shit about those who don’t fit their politics, or, the ways, they, and their friends in high places, choose to live …..

Just remember …..

One mans’ TERRORIST is another mans’ FREEDOM FIGHTER !

just as one mans’ FREEDOM FIGHTER, is another mans’ TERRORIST !

RIP to those who have lost their lives this weekend, and condolences go to those who’ve lost loved ones, and my thoughts go out to those who have been injured in Paris …..

Annnnnndddd …….

EVERYWHERE ELSE … in the world, where such actions leave innocent people seriously injured or dead.

Enough said ….

I’ll let Supastition express some other things, that also need to be said … !!!!!

STOP THE VIOLENCE … & …

STOP THE … DOUBLE STANDARDS & IGNORANCE … !!!!!

Hard tune, video & lyrics, as ever, from … Mister Supastition.

Def’ worth a listen … Samuel King …….

Black History needs no month,

Every day, we create history, but, as per this young and perspective, it seems that our history is only worthy of recognition for what, the same ol’ names, and only for, a monthly time frame !!!

Bullpish’ ….

“What Do You See ?” … (The words) … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/3/2005

So … What do you see … ?
when … you look at yourself … ?

Do you see an … ” Image ” … ?
or a … ” Picture of Health ” … ?

or the …
” Fakest ” … of people
who’d rather see … ” Wealth ” … ?

Dunno bout’ … you … ?

but …
I see … A Brother …
who’s from a … ” Hard School ” … !!!

A school of … ” Hard Knocks ” …
Surrounded by ….. ” FOOLS ” ….. !!!!!!

Some … who’ve been drowned …
in this … ” Western Whirlpool ” … !!!!

See … it’s easy to blame
My Problems on … ” Colour ” …
but these days … I feel …
like … problems i’ve got …
come from sisters and brothers …
who live for … ” THEMSELVES ” …

REGARDLESS … of colour … !!!!!

But ….
DON’T … Get Me Wrong … !!!
being black … can be … TOUGH … !!!!!

cos’ …
white folks just … ” Use Us ” …
and place us … ” In Cuffs ” …

But ….
People are People … !!!

Some Blacks … do the stuff …
that leads me to … ” Thinking ” …

Some blacks …
You … CAN’T TRUST … !!!!!

” Ashes to Ashes ” …
or … ” Dust to Dust ” …
when I look at myself …
Sometimes … I just … CUSS … !!!

Why am I … in this form … ?!?
Why am I … not the norm … ?!?

and …
What’s with these … ” Racists ” … ???
who wish I …. ” Wasn’t Born ” …. ?!?!?

Is what you see … REAL … ???
or … do you … “conceal” …
The Truth … from yourself …

While you eat …
” Wagon Wheels ” … !?!?!

That line …
Was a … Joke … !!!

But …..
That verse … ” Provokes ” …

A …. ” REALITY CHECK ” …

for … ALL of you folks … !!!

This here … is a poem …
That’s Searching for … TRUTH …

So …
Are you … ” Pretentious ” … ?
or …. Are you just … YOU … ?

and ….

What does that mean … ?!?
Can you … DEFINE YOU … !?!

or …

Are you a … ” Victim ” … ?

Redundant of … PROOF …

that …
What you … ” Believe ” …
Confirms you as … TRUE … !!!!!

TRUE … in your actions
TRUE … in your thoughts
TRUE … in the luxuries

that you have … sought … ???

See …
These are the questions
” WE ALL ” … have to face … !!!

But … do you face them … ?
in the … ” Cold Light of Day ” … ?

Or …
Do you see them … ?
But Still …….. “shy away” …

Then … jump on a train …
for a … ” Quick ” … away day …

But ….
That’s NOT … The Ticket … !!!

These are … ” Poetic Lines ” …
with … No Need to … ” Picket ” … !!!

It’s … PAINFUL … I know …
to … ” Spiritually ” … go …
to the … ” Depth of ” …

….. ” Your Psyche ” …..

Without some … ” New Nikes ” … !!!

Are you laughing … ” Politely … ?
or maybe … you might be … ?

Listening …….. silently ……………….

cos’ that line … just might be … ?
PIERCING …. ” Your Psyche ” ….

You …
Don’t … have to like me …
I’m … ” Used to that now ” …

But … Liking Yourself …
is … ” What I’m About ” … !!!

cos’ …
If you like … YOU … !!!

You’ll like … ” Others Too ” … !!!
and this will ….. ” Pass on ” ………..
to those who have … ” Youth ” …

cos’ they …
NEED … ” THE TRUTH ” …
to make the right moves …
and then … ” Our Society ” …
Might just …. IMPROVE …. !!!!

A poem … like this …
can cover … So Much …

Not just ….
” Such and Such ” …

But …
” Deep-Rooted ” … FEARS … !!!
We … ALL … Need To Touch … !!!

Like ….

What’s … REALLY … in you ?
What’s … REALLY … in me ?

How … doing these things …
can … set our minds … FREE … !!!

FREE of …….. Constraints ….
That … ” Control ” … how we be …

FREE … to create …
A world … ” Full of Peace ” …

” Freedom ” … to greet …
EVERYBODY … we meet …
from … London to Paris …
to … ” Sesame Street ” …

Now …
This … ” Final Verse ” …
Should … make this … COMPLETE … !!!

Be … TRUE TO YOURSELF … !!!
Be … REAL WITH YOURSELF … !!!

ACCEPT …. in yourself ….
The cards … You Have Dealt … !!!

and when you’ve done this …
Take a … ” Look at Yourself ” …

and …
If you feel … FREE … !!!

Have a … ” Smile to Yourself ” … !!!!!

” Stretch Out ” …
Like A …. TREE …. !!!

Be … Who You Be …
for …. ETERNITY …. !!!!!!

and this …
I am … Hoping … ???
will make you … HAPPY … !!!

Then … REMEMBER ME … !!!

The Brother … BIG V …
and … REMEMBER … This Piece …

Called ……

” What Do You See ? ”
