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

Okay folks …..

It’s that time of the month for some, Big Virge, Poetic Stuff ….

I am a long way from home currently, but it seems that, after the Paris attacks, Gatwick Terror alerts, and more gun massacres in the US, that, reasonable thought processes are being forsaken for, ” Gung Ho’ type “, reactionary responses.

So, as The Pope has been doing his thing in Africa, and Trump doing has been doing his … i.e.

“Running His Gums” …. in the US …..

I’m wondering, where the logic and reason is …. in peoples rhetoric currently ???

Well, it’s time for some reason, Big Virge Styled, that defies all these extremist type attitudes, and I don’t mean, ISIS, ISIL or any other type of group who is deemed to be wreaking havoc across the globe right now …..

Those who know, KNOW, they are far from being the only terrorists out there, in this world of ours …..

I am currently in New Zealand, funnily enough, YET ANOTHER, British Colony, in a place called Queenstown, also like Barbados, to the locals, known as you guessed it …. Little England, due to the volume of Brits who now, live and work here, where, as a Zimbabwe born farmer told me….

“When they came here, the Brits were bloody stupid !!!”

…. when speaking about certain agricultural policies, that they rather foolishly employed, that when thought about, were quickly proven to be as stupid, as much that is being spouted currently, by them and their apparently, ” Special Friends “, across the water !?!

Well, having managed to gain a little Maori culture, in my first few days here, it only seems fitting that I should, this month, share a piece that shows how much respect I have, not only for the GREAT, All Black Rugby team and World Cup Winners for 2015, but also, a culture whose warrior spirit, deals in more than reactionary responses to war …..

Thus, here is a poem that touches on that, and much much … more … !!!

In a time where we are seeing people act in very, irrational ways ….

Take some time out to listen to some thoughts based on, as said ….

Sumthin’ more, than talk of ignorance, terror and war ……

“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 ???”
