“Troubled Times” … A poem written and performed by Big Virge

Well, this is not a new piece, by any means, but, it would seem to be a piece that, sadly, transcends time, and is as poignant and relevant, now, as it could be, for each of the last 5 decades, as it probably could, further back through modern history, with regards to the policing of black people, that, seems to consistently lead to black deaths in their custody …. that we are made aware of ….

AGAIN …. I REPEAT … !!!
Those that, ” We are made aware of ” … !!!!

because it’s all good and well, talking about the people you hear about, but, it would be wise to acknowledge that there have been individuals, who are victims of cover ups, and lies, that the judiciary seems to find, quite acceptable, as excuses for, these POOR EXCUSES, for police officers !!!!!!

Sandra Bland & Sam Dubose are the latest names to hit the headlines, but, let’s not forget Eric Garner, Michael Brown & Freddie Gray, whose murder, seems to have fuelled more violence on Baltimores’ streets !!!!!

The final name i’ll add here is … Walter Scott, who suffered, what was essentially, a horrific execution, for a faulty tail light !!?!!

and….

…. let me just say this to all the, smart-mouthed, English people, who seem to think that the police in England, are divorced from their American cousins … ???

Well, the two countries don’t have a … ” Special Relationship “, for no reason !

Remember, the heritage of most, White Americans, as I keep finding out on my travels ….

If you ask them, upon meeting them, where their families originate from, you may just be surprised by, just how many have ….

YES, that’s right, European / BRITISH Connections … and that’s FACT !

So, i’ll just make mention of Mark Duggan, Smiley Culture and Christopher Alder … RIP …. to remind them of the same, ridiculous stories, that attempt to cover the racism, and brutality, that also leads to black deaths at the hands of UK Police……

It’s a disgrace … !!!!!

….. and they, as peacekeepers’, have as much to do with the decay of basic, civil rights, for people of colour, as well as, the rise in violent, street crime, that again, is not some figment of peoples’ imagination, it’s a very REAL PROBLEM, that needs to be addressed….. !!!

So, i’ll let the poem say the rest.

The list of names below, and those above, are VERY REAL INDICATIONS of …

Troubled Times ….. !!!!!

Trayvon Martin
Raymond Allen – 34
Dante Prince – 25
Nehemiah Dillard – 29
Wendall Allen – 20
Shereese Francis – 30
Rekia Boyd – 22
Kendrec McDade – 19

“Do You Ever Get … The Urge ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 12/4/2006

Do you … Ever … ?
Get the … Urge … ?
to … write down words …
which when … ” Observed ” …
Help people … ” Learn ” …

Its… HARD … to know … !!!!!
what’s good to … use … ?
when writing … prose …
that gives out … clues …
about … your views …
and … ” Darkest Moods ” …

When some … conclude …
That … ” You’ve got issues !!! ” …

” EVERYONE ” … Does … !!!!!
and that’s … ” The Truth ” … !!!!!!!!

So ….
Don’t write for … ” THEM ” … !!!!!
Try …. Writing for …. YOU …. !!!!!

Do you feel … ” Impelled ” … ?
or in … Other Words … ” Urged ” … ?
or let’s say …. ” Compelled ” …. !?!
to … ” SELL YOURSELF ” …
to … ” Acquire ” … Wealth … !?!

Such … an urge …
Can … Make Some … Learn …
to do things … ” THAT ” …
Make stomachs … ” Churn ” … !!!!!!

Like … Many have said …
It’s … ” Hard to Earn ” … !!!

“Especially when” … !!! …
You try to … collect …
when it’s NOT … your turn … !!!?!!!

” DO NOT PASS GO !!!
GIVE BACK THAT CASH !!!!! ”

” I think you … KNOW …
You haven’t earnt … THAT … !!! ”

That’s just a … joke … !!!
but it … Makes me … MAD … !!!!!
when … ” Certain Folks ” …
leave people … Broke … !!!!!

Like … ” Certain Police ” …
who’ve now … been shown …
to … ROB … Old People …
of their …. Homes …. !!! ? !!!

So that they can pay
for … ” Five Star ” … Holidays …

That’s a news story …
I’ve read … today …

Well …
I’m GLAD … to say …
He’s been … ” Locked Away ” … !!!!!

So ….
Do you ever get …
… ” The Urge ” … ?

to … Chat up … girls … ?
Especially when … !!! …
They’ve got … ” Those Curves ” …
That make …. ” Heads Turn ” … ?!!!?

Be careful now … !!!
You may get … ” Burned ” … !!!!!

If she looks … ” THAT HOT ” … !!!

She’s probably … got …
A number of … ” Hounds ” …
Chasing her … Around Town … !!!!!

and may ….. ?
” Often ” … work …
Her way … ” Down South ” …
with a mouth just like …
A … ” Circus Clown ” … !!!!!

and probably … ” Gives it up ” …
for money … ” Any Currency ” … !!!!!
Dollars, Euros … ” or ” … Pounds … !!!!!

“I can hear them now !!!”

“Without some cash,
for me to burn,
Control that urge !!!
and wait your turn !!!!!”

I’m saying girls … !!!
what’s up with … THAT … ?!?

I … ” Urge You ” … to …
show … ” More Virtue ” … !!!

There’s … CLEARLY …
Something … Wrong with you … !!!!!

So ….
Do you ever … ?
Get … ” The Urge ” … ?
to use … Sexual Tools … !?!

Well ….
Like the girls …
in … THAT … last verse …

Such … ” Perverse Attitudes ” …
Prove … You probably … DO … !!!

Well … ???
That’s … Not quite … ” True ”

Don’t … get it … confused … !!! ? !!!

Some couples … now choose …
to fill … bedrooms …
with … Dildos … Cuffs …
and … ” Other Stuff ” … !!!!!
to feed … their needs …
for … ” Wild ” … Sex sprees … !!!

Now … let me explain …
“My Views” … on this subject …
Straight … and … Plain …

I … REALLY …
LOVE SEX … !!!!!

But …
Sexy underwear …
is enough … for me … !!!!!

because …
I have to say … !!!!
It’s … Great to Play … !!!!!!

But ….
At the end of the day …
Sex … Isn’t a game …
when girls cry … ” RAPE ” … !!!!!!!

Some girls … ” Get The Urge ” …
when they feel … ” HURT ” …
to set men … up …
when they’ve had … ” ENOUGH ” … !!!!!

” Come on, PULL MY HAIR !!!
Yes there, Ooooo YEAH !!!!! ”

” THEY ARE ” …. out there ….

So fellas … ” BEWARE ” … !!!!!

before you end up
in a … ” Courtroom Chair ” … !!!!!!!!

“Scary” … words …
but … Do you ever … ?
Get The … Urge … ?
to just … ” Return ” …
to your … ” Ex-girl ” … ?

Well ….
that’s an … ” Urge ” …
that … May Not … work … !!!

because she is … ” Your Ex ” …
for a reason …… ” YES ” ……. !!!!!

If you … ” Miss Her ” …
…… ” COOL ” ……

But …..
Don’t be … ” A Fool ” …

” PLEASE ” …..
Think it through … !!!!!

If you make … ” That Move ” …
Lay down … The Rules …
Then …. DO YOUR DO …. !!!!!!

Just like … ” BRAND NEW ” … !!!!!!!

So …
Do you ever get … The Urge ..
to simply …. ” Observe ” ….
and watch … individuals …
in this …. World …. ?

I have to say … !!!
” Sometimes ” … I Do …
because it helps me … ” Fuel ” …
My … Poetic Wordplay …

That’s Why … My Words …
Leave … ” So Many ” … Stirred … !!!!!

I guess some think …
i’m a bit …. ” DISTURBED ” …. !!!!!!!

I … ” Urge ” … them to …
Not Hold … such views … !!!

It’s … ” REALITY ” … !!!
….. ” My Poetry ” … !!!!!

and is …
” Mostly ” … Based …
on things i’ve seen … !!!

If … My Words … ” SHOCK ” … !!!
or … give you … ” KNOCKS ” … !!!

Like …. Marvin said ….
” What’s going on ??? ” ….

Can you … NOT SEE … !?!
things are … Going Wrong … !!!!!

From relationships ….
to … ” Modern Day ” … kids …

I’m simply … ” Sharing ” …
“My Views” … on things …

Things like … ” STINGS ” … !!!
for …. Diamond Rings ….
and …. Peoples’ cash ….
to live life …. ” Flash ” …. !!!

while … ” Many ” …
have … ” NOTHING ” …

Don’t it … make you MAD ?!?

That’s why ….
I get …. ” The Urge ” ….
to put … ” Pen to Pad ” …
and write … ” These Words ” …
that … ” Sometimes ” … HURT …
when based on … FACT …

” Whatever ” …. THAT is …. !!!! ? !!!!

These days we see …
So Many … things ..
That … Make us … ” SICK ”
from …. ” Poli-tricks ” ….
to …. ” Starving Kids ” …. !!!

This is why … I think …
Like …. ” Good Music ” ….

We need to … ” PRESERVE ”
“This Use ” … of words …

Through …. ” Poetry ” ….

So …..

” Even if ” ….
” They Disturb ” ….

… “Or” … Leave you …
…. ” STIRRED ” ….

when it comes to
…. ” Words ” ….

” Do you EVER get
… The Urge … ? ”

The Service Levels of Today …. via …. Liat Airways !!!!! … ” SMH ?!? “

Okay, well, as a man raised inna England, who has now experienced West Indian service, Bajan style, for about a year now, this is NOT, AT ALL, Surprising ….

However, a quick dig at an English Company, that has shown me where much of these attitudes now stem from ….

F’ing Banks man … !!!!!

If y’all looking at these f’ing monkey cunt, Halifax Bank, adverts, over the last few years with their, condescending use of this, ” Black Mister Magoo “, character, to indicate how warm, friendly and helpful they are ….

DON’T BE FOOLED … !!!!!

They are as arrogant, obnoxious and fast, to run by their own rules, when you don’t happen to fit into how they like to do things, even when you have explained the issue and why it’s occurred ….

Much like … ah yes …. “LIAT” … !!!!!

Who do they think they are, issuing challenges to the likes of Virgin … ???

Good luck with that, YOU FUKWITS !!!!!

Why do so many people in these islands, think that, ” Wrong & Strong “, is the way to go … ???

Annnndddd … THEY REALLY be … Believing their own, “Pish” ??!??

I believe that there are people here in the West Indies, who know & recognise the value of GOOD SERVICE & humility in the face of … INEPT Practises & Thinking ….

….. but, WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY !!!!!

Liat needs to go, suck pon a lime …. !!!!!
