This month’s subject is … ” Hair ” … written & performed by Big Virge

All i’ll say is this …

It is Truly … INCREDIBLE, to believe & see that, in AFRICA … !!?!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-37219471

The matter, of black peoples’ HAIR, is even being mentioned in discussions of how we should present ourselves, in this,

” APPARENT ” ….. Post Apartheid, Mandela legacy, South Africa !

So ….
ONCE AGAIN, for 2016 ….

This stuff is …
BEYOND A … F’ing Joke ….. !!!!!!

However, it is no surprise, surprisingly … to me, with my well … ?!?

Hair …. !!?!!

…. and the all too frequent, disrespectful, name calling comments, that I can barely remember, let alone mention, regarding the aforementioned, Hair … smh …

Blacks, Whites & Asians alike, as this piece states, have no shame in running talk on how mine, and clearly, other black peoples’ hair, grows free ….

Untidy … to them … maybe … ???
Unclean … well ladies, … !!!

I’ll take that, pepsi challenge, that’s it’s cleaner than a lot of y’all …

Pussies … !!!!!

LOL … !!!!!!!

and y’all, UPP-ity … Black Girls … turning up your noses to my kind of wild styled hair, well, you best not be running that, straight FAKE Horse, or, Indian Hair, that ain’t yours alright !!!!!

Anyhow …

Here it is … ” Hair ” …

“Who’s Next ???”, a poem written by Big Virge 25/07/05

(Pt. III)

After the 7/7 bombing …
This is part of a Trilogy of poems to remind people about
where some of their, ” Anti-Islam Rhetoric “, started from ….

(BTW … I am NOT, Pro-Islam)

People, as much as it seems,
disconnected from, the 7/7 attacks.
One should recognise,

The murder of Jean Charles De Menezes …

Yeah … Remember Him !!!

R.I.P.

It’s CLEAR.

whether you believe, 7/7 was a Muslim,
Islamist attack, or not ?

What has transpired since,
has shown that Terrorist actions,
are not something that, Muslims
have total ownership of ……………

Ask the family of the latest name to go on their list of apparent, accidental murder victims of police, doing their … ” Duty ” … ?!?

which I believe is to …

” Protect & Serve ” … people like …

Michael Brown !!!

Hate, leads to terror, and
MURDER, is an act of … TERRORISM.

Well …… They’ve made ….
A … ” REALLY ” … Good Start … !!!!!

They’ve Shot … A Brazilian … ?!?

Straight through … His Heart … !!!

Of course …. ” Those Words ” …
are … NOT … Quite Right … !!! ? !!!

He was … SHOT …
… FIVE TIMES ….. !!?!!
At … Point Blank Range … !!!!!

They got … ” REAL CLOSE ” … !!!
Putting … Guns in his face … !!!!!!

They CLAIMED …

“He had a bomb !” …

But Alas …

They got it … WRONG … !?!

They made a … ” Slight Mistake ” … !!!

Well … ” Apologies ” …
Won’t … Mean a lot …
when friends are at …

….. HIS WAKE ….. !!!!! …..

There is a …

” PROBLEM ” … here … !!!

They’ve given the … ALL CLEAR …
For Policemen … to …

… “SHOOT TO KILL” … !?!

SO ….
” Who now ” … Has To Fear … !?!

Is it … ” WHITES ” … ???

It would seem … NOT … ?!?

“It’s Muslims and,
The other lot !”

The … ” OTHER LOT ” … !?!
means … those Like … ” Me ” …

Young Black Men …
on … London Streets …

So much for us …
Being … FREE … ?!!!?

” Freedom ” … NOW …
is …. ” Obsolete ” ….

Those with … ” Colour ” …
WILL … Now See …

Much more of ……
Those … ” NICE POLICE ” … !!!!!

Those who work …
for these … MP’s

Who ……
Claim to … ” REGRET ” …
Such … ” TRAGEDIES ” …

But still …” WON’T CHANGE ” …
Their … ” Policies ” … ?!!!? …

This is now …
A … ” Horrid Time ” … !!!!!
cos’ … words like … ” These ” …
May be … ” Defined ” … ??? …
As ….. ” INCITEMENT ” …..
When it’s just … ” Rhyme ” …

This … ” it seems ” …
is … ” Their Design ” …

Pay … ” CLOSE ATTENTION ” …
to the … ” Following Lines ” …

“We wil imprison, or, deport !
Anyone attacking, the values of The West !”

That’s … ” Lord Falconer ” …
Our … Lord Chancellor … …

He’ll bring … DISTRESS … !!!
to me …. ” I guess ” …. ?

for things … I say …
Against … ” THE WEST ” …

Like … ” Freedom of Speech ” …
will soon be …. ” DEAD ” …..

Now … I Don’t own …
A … ” Bullet-Proof Vest ” … !!!

But …
Who needs one … !?!
when they’re …
Aiming at … HEADS … !!?!!

Instead of … ” Arms ” …
or … BETTER STILL … ” Legs ” … !!!

These people are …
Humanitys’ … “ DREGS ” … !!!!!

Their … ” TERROR LAWS ” …..
are like … ” FISHNETS ” .… !?!
with ….. ” NO FISH ” ..… !!!!?!!!!

But ….. ” HUMAN DEAD ” ….. !!!

What they say …
Makes me … UPSET … !!!

” Muslim ” … THIS … !!!
and … ” Muslim ” … THAT … !!!

I’m … NO MUSLIM … !!!
That’s a … FACT … !!!

Of course it’s … WRONG … !!!
to … ” Suicide Bomb ” …. !!! …

But … ” Two Wrongs ” …
Don’t make things … Right … !!!

We’re in … DARK TIMES …
Without … ” Much Light ” … !!!

When … ALL WE DO …
is … ” Incite Fights ” … ?!?

Just because of …..

” STEREOTYPES ” … !?!

This is why ….
Innocents … will die …

Tears will … ” Flow ” …
while many … CRY … !!!

Tears of ….. ” SADNESS ” …..
from this … ” MADNESS ” ….

MADNESS … On …
Your TV Screens …

MADNESS … On …
Our City Streets …

Madness … that …
Will slowly … ” Creep ” …

YES …..
Close to … You … !!!

And …
Close to …. Me …. !!!!

Don’t … DISMISS …
cos’ you’ve been … ” Missed ” …

At … ANY TIME …
You … Could get … HIT … !

by a … Policeman …
who holds a … GUN … !!!
and has the … ” OK ” …
to … Make You … RUN … !!!!!

Just like … “ REDNECKS ” …
Run from ….. “ SUN ” ….. !!!!!

Or … I Do … from …

….. ” RACISM ” ….. !!!!!!

That’s something …..
I’ve Always … ” SHUNNED ” … !!!!!

because I like …
This Word … HUMAN … !!!!!

If you … Shoot Me …
with a …. ” Gun ” ….

When I Bleed ….
It’s … BLOOD … that runs … !!!

KILLING …… is ……

NO ……. SOLUTION …….. !!!!!!

They’ve just … KILLED …
Somebody’s … SON … !!!!!

That’s what comes from …
Using …. GUNS …. !!!!!

NEEDLESS DEATHS …..

Rise like … ” The Sun ” …
While Peace Now … ” Sinks ” ….

Into … ” OCEANS ” …

This ain’t making ….
Life … ” Much Fun ” …

Actually …..
I’m getting …. ” VEX ” ….. !!!

cos’ … I’m thinking …

Maaaaannnnnnnnnnn ……..

WHO’S NEXT ….. ? !!!!!!!!!! ?

“Isn’t less … Sometimes … MORE ?!?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/10/2005

A suitable follow up to my last post …..

Isn’t … less … ?
Sometime … MORE … ?

Those words sound … GOOD …
If … You’re NOT … ” Poor ” … !!! …

But ……
Money … Doesn’t …
Give You … ” LIFE ” …
and … Life is … NOT …
Defined by …. ” Price ” ….

But ….
Is that … Right … ?!?

“Some” … would say …
it makes them … ” SMILE ” … !!!

Now … This Defines …
Those in … ” DENIAL ” …

It’s not my way …
to … Make you pay …
for things that … People …
Like to … Say …

But … writing things …
Helps … EASE … The Rage …
I Feel … Today …
because of … ” GREED ” …
That … leads to … PAIN … !!!!!

That’s why …
I’m … Asking … ?

What’s the score … ?

Isn’t less … ?
Sometimes … MORE … ?

cos’ … GREED …
is something …
I … ” DEPLORE ” … !!!!!

” Money ” …. Fuels ….
A … LOT of Wars … !!!!!
where people … ” DIE ” …

So …
How’s that … RIGHT … ?!?

More DEATH … than … Life
” Sees people ” …. CRY …. !!!!!

“Tears” … and eyes …
Don’t be … surprised …
If words I … speak …
” Darken ” … sunlight …

In todays’ times ….
while … writing rhymes …
I use … my mind …
to find … ” SUNSHINE ” … !!!

I have … Less Cash …
than … EVER BEFORE … !!!!!
and … face a life …
of being …. ” POOR ” ….

That’s … NOT FOR SURE …
But …. Money’s made ….
Pain … in me … ” SOAR ” … !!!

” Arguments ” ….
to get some … CASH …
are … ” DANGEROUS ” … !!!!!
and … Make Some … ” CLASH ” … !!!!!!!

I’d rather have ….. ” LESS ” …. !!!
than … ” MORE ” … of that … !!!!!

Mums and Dads …..
Now … Fight for … Cash … ?

” Ignoring ” … Daughters … ?!?
and their …. ” Lads ” …. !?!

These are … things …
NOT GOOD … but … BAD … !!!!!

EVEN … Fathers … !!!
and their … SONS … !!!!!
will go to … ” Court ” … ?!?

Now …
THAT’S … NOT FUN … !!!!!

“Over” …. MONEY …. ?!?
Come on now ….. !!! …..

That’s just as … BAD … !!!
as … Gun-Type … Sounds … !!!

“LESS” … Violence … !!!
is … BETTER THAN … MORE … !!!!!

Like … LESS DEFIANCE …
Breeds … ” Less War ” …

MORE … Aggression … !!!
FEEDS … Depression … !!!

“These” … are things …
I’d Like to … ” LESSEN ” … !!!

Sometimes … LESS TALK …
and … More … Action …
Can bring you … YES …

….. ” Satisfaction ” ….. !!!!!

and … That’s a … FACT … !!!
” Don’t ” … DISMISS THAT … !!!!!

But … it’s …
GOOD … to talk … !!!
when … Building Forts … !!!!!

But … !!! …

NOT … A Fortress …
Just for … ” YOU ” … !!!

… ” REMEMBER ” … !!!

” Other People ” … FOOL … !!!!!
may take …. because ….
They … Want That … TOO … !!!!!

That’s what … MORE …
Can sometimes … ” DO ” …

Make …. people ….

“JEALOUS” … of you … !!!!!

and make them … PULL …
” The Darkest ” … Moves … !!!!!

If you haven’t got a thing …
What’s there to … Take … ???

I guess … This View …
is not … the way …

But … look around you …
….. ” NOWADAYS ” ….. !!!!!

Can you say i’m wrong … ?
at the end of the … day … ?!?

” Some ” …
will … KILL YOU … !!!
for … ” Your Chain ” … !?!

I’m thinking …
Some folk … are … INSANE … !!!!!

Check …. ” New Orleans ” … !!!
when facing … ” Death ” … !!! …

Some … were stealing …
….. ” TV Screens ” ….. !!!!! ? !!!!!!
Instead of … Helping …
Those who … ” SCREAMED ” … ??? ! ???

Come on now folks …
See what … I mean … !?!

” Money ” … breeds …
“RUTHLESS” … ” Street Teams ” … !!!!!

Who … then do things …
that are … ” OBSCENE ” … !!!!!

” Happiness ” ….
means … MORE … to me …
than …. ” ANY SUM ” ….
of … Cash Money … !!!!!!

Times …. Right now …
have made me … SEE … !!!

Money … CAN’T …
Fulfil … My Dreams … !!!

” LESS ” …….. Murder ……..
Gives us … MORE LIFE … !!!!
and … Helps To … KEEP …
Our Race ….. ” ALIVE ” ….. !!!!!

ALL … Colour Types … !!!
from … Black to White …

” Less Division ” ….

Helps MORE … ” UNITE ” … !!!!!

and … THAT …
For Sure … !!!
is … Better than … WAR … !!!!!!

and … NOW … has made …
My Mind …. ” EXPLORE ” ….

This simple question ….

” Isn’t Less … ?
Sometimes … MORE ???”
