” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

One.

Now THIS … is some poetry !!!!!

Something for the, ” Blinkered Fools “, who believe that following a flag or some form of patriotism, will in the end, allow them to feel as though they are worth something ….

This might just change their minds, a lil’ bit, at least !!!!!

Pure GENIUS !!!!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 11/01//2006

As if I hadn’t seen enough of this, in England, now, I see it in, my parents back yard, from those who are apparently, connected to me ….. ?!?

What a F’ing JOKE !!!!!!

Showing love to … ” Them “, and people in general, these days, sadly, many years after writing the below, is becoming, more and more difficult … chuh’ … !!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” ….

for those …
Who Don’t … know …
was a … 70′s Show …
that used … ” Racist Jokes ” …
to show how it … goes …
with some … English Folks …

” FEAR ” … of Blacks …
and that’s … JUST THAT … !!!

Things …..
Haven’t changed much …
and that’s a … FACT … !!! …

But some … ” White Girls ” …
Take time … and … ” Learn ” …
That … Black men … KNOW …
What ROCKS … ” Their Boat ” … !!!

Some White Men … HATE … !!!!!
to … see them ………. Stray …………

“Into Beds” …. where ….
Black Men …. LAY …. !!! ….

Because …….
Like … ” They Say ” …

“If he’s not on crack !
Once they’ve had black,
they won’t turn back !”

Now I … DON’T BELIEVE …
That … This is … ” True ” … !!!!!

cos’ girls … these days …
are … ” SO CONFUSED ” … ?!?

because of …. ” DRUGS ” …
and ….. TV News ……
that leaves them …

…… ” Lost ” …… ?? !!! ??

and with ….. ISSUES …… !!!!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” … ?

Do me a … ” Favour ” … !!!!!!!

Girls these days …
Make Love … HARD LABOUR … !!?!!

But …..
As i’ve said …

” The Show ” … Reflects …
on how … ” Racists ” …
Try To …. ” INFECT ” …. !!!

The minds of … YES … !!!
Their groups of … ” FRIENDS ” … !!!!!
from stories …. ” Bred ” ….
from … IGNORANCE … !!!!!!

“It’s just the way they are !”

….. They Say …..

“Without a brain,
and, taught to rape !”

“Hold on there mate !
The News, these days,
has set things, straight !”

“It seems, some whites
are, not so nice !
and like to sex,
young child, you’ll find !
Yes, those profiled,
as Paedophiles !”

“It’s just the odd one !”

I Hear them CRY … !!!!

Like those … ” Employed ”
by … ” Government Types ”
with …. SEX OFFENCES …
on their …. ” File ” …. ?!!!?

“You’re INSANE ” … to claim …
You’re … CIVILISED … ?!!!? …
when kids are … ” Abused ” …
by …. ” Teacher Types ” ….

Most crimes by … Blacks …
Aren’t of … THAT STYLE … !!!

Most Blacks … commit crimes …
to …. ” JUST SURVIVE ” …. !!!!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …

PROVED … that blacks … !!!
Face ….. Racism ….
whilst having to … ” Labour ” … !!!!!

Just to keep ….
Themselves … OFF STREETS … !!!
where … ” Lives of Crime ” …
are then … ” Designed “…

and then the …
” Racists Say ” …

“Black people,
have got no shame !!!”

Well …
The show was … STOPPED.
in … Seventy Six …
because of … Complaints …
about … What it … ” Portrayed ”

Well ….
THIRTY YEARS LATER … !!!!!!!
Things … Seem the same … ??!??

We’re … STILL VICTIMS …
of … ” English Racists ” … !!!!!

They say,

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …
couldn’t … air today …

WHY ….. ??? ! ???

Old English Ways … !?!

” RACISM ” …

Good old … HATE … !!!!!!

So …..

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …
What do you say … ???

How’d you like to wake up
to my ….. ” Black face ” ….. ???

Do you feel … “ashamed”
of … what you’ll … SAY … ?!?!?

Let me … Explain why …
You feel … like that …

You’ve been …
… ” Programmed ” …
to … see us … THAT WAY …

THE DARKER … We Are …
The lower …. our grade …. !!!

EVEN … Today … ?!!!?

Some … think that way …
” PROGRAMMED ” … Okay … !!!

But …..
You have a … BRAIN … !! ? !!

I’m speaking … MY MIND …
and … WON’T APOLOGISE … !!!!!

Some blacks … STILL THINK …
that they …. are …. WHITE …. ??!??

Are you … SURPRISED … ?

Well you …..
Uncle Tom … ” Guys ” … !!!

May just be … ” FIRST ” …

RACIST … Police …
and subtle … ” Schemes ” …

Like …
Making SURE …
… ” My Poetry ” …

by those who … ” Choose ” …
To RUN … from ……….. TRUTH ………….

” These Days ” … it seems …
There’s ….. QUITE A FEW …… !!!!!

Who … “hide behind” …
A … CROCK OF LIES … !!!

Those who run …
Most … Poetry Nights …
seem … “CLOSELY LINKED” …
to …. ” Government Types ” …. !!!?!!!

” FUNNY, That … !?! ”

I’m a bit … surpRISED …

That’s ….
NOT QUITE … True … !!!

Moves … They Make …
are so … ” SEE THROUGH ” …

I Now … ” Care Not ” …
for things … ” They Do ” … !!!

I’m … NOT … in this …
to ….. ” Influence ” …. !!!
or to … make myself …
….. ” New Friends ” ….. !!!

But Girls …. HELL YES ….
I Love … Straight Sex … !!!!!

There’s NO … better friend …
Than YOU … in the … NUDE …
On My … ” Double Bed ” … !!!!!!!

and DON’T … ” Play Games ” …

UNLIKE … these blokes …
who use … ” weak quotes ” …
to … Make You … ” Think ” …
They’ll … ROCK … ” Your Boat ” … !!!

But …..
Enough of … THAT … !!!!!
