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

Well folks, another month has passed, and as usual currently, just enough crazy things have happened to leave me feeling, a little punch drunk, with all that I am hearing & seeing to be standard actions in this world of ours.

Politicians backstabbing and deceiving one another !!!

Elections coming here in Barbados, and many seem to be saying the same as was said by quite a few people in the US, before Donald Trump became President.

If Freundel’s crew retain power here, heads are talking about Canada as a safe haven.

Well, what I will say is that on the surface, it looks like one of the better countries to be in at the moment.

However, is anywhere really safe and prosperous these days ?

America & England do not exactly offer safe havens to go, unless you are willing to ignore the social issues that currently surround living in either country currently.

Money Money Money though, still has people acting funny !

Desperation is almost like a new breathing apparatus for the majority, as prices continue to rise, whilst wages are not rising at quite the same pace.

Trouble’s a brewing, and as said, the political ring has the Punch Drunk feeling being thrown around, however, Meghan & William did their thing over the weekend, with a whole heap of pomp and ceremony.

It’s always interesting to me, to see how celebrities who claim to represent art that should influence peoples’ perceptions of say, everything from Capitalism, to, Historical Wrongs that have been suitably covered up, yet, they are quick to accept an invitation from one of the biggest, if not THE BIGGEST, family of colonialists, who, in no small way have contributed to not only, the inequalities of this world, through their legacies of brutality, greed and receipt, but have profited in ways that make their money seem much more dirty, than any that’s being laundered currently.

It’s incredible that, so soon after the acknowledgement that Windrush Migrants were deemed to basically, not exist, presumably because of their lack of economic benefit to the country now, that, no-one was at the Royal Wedding, protesting the idea of William, grabbing himself, a bit of colour to create an image of acceptance, for people of colour, even within the royal family !?!

It’s pretty amazing really, when you add in, the current, ” Brexit ” vibe, and the, ” Hostile Environment “, that was supposed to be the policy towards todays’ immigrants, trying to get to stay in the UK.

As said, it’s all getting a bit too much for my brain to cope with, so, let me get back to the piece i’m sharing this month.

Well, having watched a pretty decent fight between Adonis Stevenson & Badou Jack any Light Heavyweight last night, which for a change, ended with a controversial verdict, that actually, wasn’t that controversial.

No Knockout Punches were thrown, that landed, but there were some brutal shots that were taken, that warrant a rematch after the draw decision which allows Stevenson to keep his belt for now.

So, for boxing fans, this month’s piece speaks on more than boxing, but pays homage to some of the great fighters, who have inspired me over the years, in more ways that one.

They may be premier athletes, but, I think i’ve done enough now, to prove that i’m a premier wordsmith, and this piece will definitively explain why …..

Simply, because as the poem states, when it comes to my wordplay ….

It Definitely has a Heavyweight ….

” Punch ” ….

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

So how’s the world treating you people ?!?

Hopefully better than those in Florida who had to deal with a very different version of Valentines’ Day attention !!!!!

Funny how the word, ” Terrorism “, has not been applied to this individual’s act, wouldn’t you say ???

An act that he made, which appears, in no small way, to have been due to his following of, some quite clearly, extreme RIGHT WING (i.e. Fascist & Racist) views, that surely, within reason, could be defined as hate filled ?!?

Thus, this could be defined as a HATE CRIME, however, the subject of discussion has immediately swayed to, Gun Control, Hmmm …..

How about applying such attitudes to say … Bombs …

Bomb Controls …. ???

and I don’t mean those of a Nato type, which reminds me, Oxfam aren’t exactly as sweet as the wrapper appears, go look at what their emissaries have been dealing in … Fa F’ks sake … !!!

Anyway back to it,

Racism ….. ???

Racism Controls, which, as ridiculous an idea as it seems, might actually hinder people from making acts of this kind …

Maybe in the instance of a defined, Hate Crime, some Capital Punishment …. !?!

Well, the world turns and people get theirs, while others suffer, or sadly, die !

Today has seen the conviction of two SICK Whatevers …. ????

…. for their Paedohpile Abuses, a scholar of sorts, and a football coach in the UK.

The latter, who has something like 80 victims with more coming out ….
I mean SERIOUSLY …… ?!?

Words cannot express the level of disgust such things stir in me, especially when, in these cases, they’ve long since, got away with their wickedness, whilst the victims are forced to live with the nightmare, one, who it was stated, had an operation to stop him having children because of his fear of not being able to protect any that he may have had ….

As said, crazy ish folks, NASTY F’kd up and CRAZY !!!!!

However, life goes on right, Donald continues on his merry way, basically, ” Trumpifying’ “, anything he can, before the powers above him, feel that he needs to be reigned in some …..

So, in the spirit of Trump type glorification of oneself ….

This month’s little sumthin’ is named after me …..

The subject matter, like last month’s piece, is all encompassing, and relevant, in many ways, to much happening these days …..

So, check out some …. Virgelements’ ….

That’s right ……. VIRGELEMENTS folks ……. !!!!

Wanna know more, take a listen …..

Stay safe and be cool out there folks, people have never been easy, and most are making things, even more difficult than usual right about now ……

Peace and Guidance ….

The Virge Out.

” 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 ……

“Could It … Await You ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 02/10/2009

As it’s World Cup Time, had to get some World Cup rhymes on this site ….

Although the rest of this is so far Awwwwwwaaaaaayyyyyyy from football, it is not one for the footie heads, but, for those who like their movies, especially those that delve into action & consequence and darker realms … this should be fun to read, even if you didn’t like … ” Drag Me To Hell ” ….

CLEARLY … I Did … !!!!!

Ya know …
I … Quite Enjoyed …
” Drag Me To hell ” … !!!

That flicks’ quite sick … !!!
in how it … ” Toys ” …
with thoughts that … ” Dwell ” …

Inside … ” Us All ” …
About … ” Pitfalls ” … !!!

and … choices made …
to make … ” The Grade ” …

” That ” …
May … in the end … ???
Decide your … Fate … !!!

” A Fate ” … that awaits ……..
” Bad-Minded ” … Traits … !!!!!
that show … ” Disdain ” …
to being ….. ” Humane ” …..

This piece of … prose …
Is NOT … for those …
who … choose to believe …
that there are … No Penalties … ?!?
when their time is … UP … !?! …

Don’t be … SO DUMB … !
YOU KNOW … Extra Time Comes …
in a …. ” Drawn ” …. World Cup …. !!!

and then … You know what … ?
It’s …. PENALTIES SON …. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now … Such Analogies …
can be …. ” Quite Deep ” …. !?!

If you … Use Your Brain …
to do more than … ” Attain ” …

A position with conditions …
Like … Enforcement of … ” Renditions ” …
or … DENYING … ” A Petition ” …
from a soul facing … ” Eviction ” … !!!

Just to … GET TO …
” That ” … Position … !?!

Envision now … ” That Vision ” ……….

cos’ it’s … NOT ONE FROM …

….. ” Pulp Fiction ” ….. !!!!!

It’s from ….
…. ” Drag Me To Hell ” … !!!

A story i’ll … ” Retell ” …
to make a … Point to you …

What are the things … ” You Do ” … ?
That … “deep inside” … You Rue … !?!

Have you … ” Thought of SELF ” … ?
when you could have … ” Helped ” …

….. ” Somebody Else ” ….. ?!?

NOW …. That Could Have You … ?
Dragged to …. ” Hell ” …. !?!?! ….

because … such moves …
are … NOT … ” Heartfelt ” … !!!

and just … AREN’T COOL … !!!
… ” Enough ” … to quell …
” The Heat ” … in cells …
where … ” Devils Dwell ” …
and finally … ” Stew ” … !!! …

What you … ” Cook Up ” …
May leave you … “STUCK” … !?!

Ask … ” Christine Brown ” …
How That … Goes Down … ?!?

It leads to … MORE …
than a face that … FROWNS … !!!

It leads to … WARS … !!!
on … ” Demonic Grounds ” … !!!!!

ALL BECAUSE …..
of a … LUST FOR MORE … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More Power … More Cash …
More than … ” YOU HAVE ” … !!!

Will there ever be a point … ?
where you’ve got … ENOUGH … !?!

Think about that … Son …
Maybe … ” Spark A Joint ” …
and … FREE YOUR MIND … !!!!!
from … Thoughts of this kind … !!!!!!

Do you think … ” Telling Lies ” …
is gonna … Help Your Plight … ???
When Judgement Day … Arrives … !?!

There’s … Surely more to life … !!! …
Than … ” Your Advancement ” … RIGHT … ?!?

Well … it seems these days …
that … ” Many ” … now stray ………………………………………

Down .. DEVIOUS LANES … !!!
to … MAKE … Their Way …

No Matter … WHAT …
They have to … DO … !?!?!

from … 9/11 plots …
to those now being … SHOT … !!!!
in the name of … ” TERROR ” … !!!!

…… They’re ……
” TRYING TO ” … STOP … ?!?!?!?

I think there’s an … ERROR … !?!
that’s … ” Censored ” … SPOCK … !!!

” Logic ” … Now dropped … !!!
for a … FEAR FILLED LOT … !!!!

” FEAR ” … that seeps …
and slowly … “creeps” … !!!
like … “Devilish Deeds” …
Now running … ” Streets ” … !!!

Once Again … ” That’s Deep ” … !!!
just like …. ” This Flick ” ….

Where this … ” Ambitious Chick ” …
just … ” Could Not See ” … !!! …
Beyond …. ” Her Dreams ” ….
of … ” Loved Up Scenes ” …

Even though … ” SHE KNEW ” …
She had a …. ” Tainted View ” ….

It was CLEAR … that this lady …
was gonna see … ” Hades ” … !!!

“V, it’s just a film !”

“I know that dude !
But the film was ill !”

“Okay cool, continue !”

“Thank You, I will !
See, the deal was this !
Like a Tale From The Crypt,
she received a gift, that she,
didn’t want, because of her wish,
to get this job, when she knew
she’d done wrong !”

“Okay, i’m hearing you Virge,
go on, go on !”

“Well, the plot was kinda long,
and had a lot going on !
Action and consequence,
was the message by the end,
which gave me inspiration,
to write this here poem !”

To Improve your situation …
What would you … ” Truly Do ” … !?!

Do you think that …
Lying …. BLATANT …. !!!!
is something …
You would … Choose … ???

Do you … NOT BELIEVE …
…… in Satan …… ?!?
or that … He May … FACE YOU … !!!

when it is … TIME …
For You to … DIE …
and … ” Testify ” …
About … ” Your Life ” … !?!

When Your … ” Spirit Flies ” ………
You May …… just find ……
That … You Are … ” JUDGED ” …
for … ALL YOUR CRIMES … ?!?!?!?

The … ” trivial ones ” …
and …. MORE SERIOUS … types … !!!!!

“Son, you ain’t a cat !
You ain’t got, nine lives !”

Don’t … NO-ONE Know … ???
what the … ” Afterlife Holds ” … ?!?

But as … Curtis said …
Don’t Be … ” Misled ” … !!!

“If there’s a Hell below,
we’re all gonna go !!!”

Well i’d rather believe …
that … if you … DON’T … deceive …
for …. ” SELFISH MEANS ” … !!! …

You’ll embrace … ” The Light ” …
in the …. ” Afterlife ” …. !!! ….

” Drag Me To Hell ” …
asks … Many Questions … ?!?
About … ” Life’s Lessons ” …

and the one … it …

……… ” SELLS ” ………

is …. THIS ONE …. about …
.
………..” HELL ” ……….

When you think about …
… The Things … YOU DO …

” Could It … Await You !?! “
