“Point The Finger” … Written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Yes Yes People !!!

So, what’s going on in your world right now ?

Well, having just watched a very interesting movie about Botswanas’ not so distant history, of race driven shenanigans, that included, quite a bit of finger pointing by the British & South African Governments, ” A United Kingdom “, is a film that serves as a great reminder of the danger of pointing fingers, without justification, especially when yours are clearly, NOT SO CLEAN …. !!!!!!!

Fast forward to today, and there’s so much to think on these days, that connect to …..

” Fingers Being Pointed ” …..

…. that has led to much that we see in the world today.

Especially the modern political landscape of today, as pressures increase, safety concerns continue to disturb, from Migrants apparently, causing problems to Italy’s Southern Coastlines, to Brexit’ talks continuing to apparently, falter ….

…. and talking of faltering ….

NOT, that it was a failure, but sadly, it doesn’t look as though we’ll get to see Mr. Usain Bolt, pointing his arms and fingers to the air in celebration of a major championship 100 metre victory again ….

Ah well, such is life, but I have to quickly give props to this legendary athlete, for all his achievements on the track, and hopefully now, what he should translate into an, off the track legacy, that will not only help Jamaica, in multiple ways, but also, young athletes all over the world, to be inspired to achieve, something even comparable to the, ” Lightning Mans’ “, achievements.

Well done Usain, great career man !!!

However, back to this idea of pointing fingers, well, The Trumpster’ is hiring and firing as quickly as he can point his fingers clearly, Korea are pointing fingers at the US, as are Russia now, and Venezuela and Brazil, seem to have a lot of pointing going on, of much more than fingers sadly ….

and Of Course, one cannot forget the Grenfell Tower Blaze survivors, who are also pointing fingers at the UK Government and wanting, not only answers, but a place to lay their heads, after what now seems to be accepted as Corporate Manslaughter, so, I wonder whether judges will have the balls to point some MP’s to Jail, with no chance of getting Bail, or, a …

” Get Out of jail Free ” … card … !?!

Unlikely …… !!!

… as it seems to be unlikely that Barbadians will do anything more than, walk and talk about, how tight things now are in this island paradise, because of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, pointing to who knows what, to ensure his legacy of governance is not forgotten, for quite some time …..

So, for this month, as there does seem to be a lot of this going on, right about now ……

Some verse worth pondering before you join the brigades doing it ……

I suggest you check YOURSELF, before thinking you can do it …..

Writers’ Block … Prod by Strat Carter

Well currently, one thing’s for CERTAIN Folks,
when it comes to the US Press and Media,

They don’t seem to have any of this thing, when it comes to writing about President Trump,
and all the blockages he keeps facing ….

Well, this piece of verse, set to some more sweet,
Strat Carter production, proves that it’s one thing I definitely …

Ain’t Got … !!!!!

Writers’ What … ?!?
When it comes to …. REAL writers’ ….

I Think …. NOT.

So, what’s been happening …. ? … written by Big Virge 21/3/2016

Yes Yes People ……. !!!

Goodness me, these posts are getting less and less frequent, but thankfully, for a change, in this instance, it’s because i’ve been as busy as those, now choosing to create, levels of fear, destruction and terror, across the globe … !!!!!

Belgium today, and of recent, Paris, Nigeria, The U.S., South Africa and heaven knows where else on this seemingly, god-forsaken planet of ours !

So, i’ve been busy getting down to some, musical creativity, which I shall be sharing shortly, but, travelling has drained me somewhat, and I have other dramatic changes, about to take shape, within my life, that will, in all honesty, avail me further separation from people, than I already have, but that’s a whole other post !!!

So, before I get to the interesting stuff, I cannot possibly ignore this Election Race, Sanders & Clinton vs The Trump road show, of well, Hoopla & Encouragement of well, free expression …..

Well, for him at least ….. !!!

I am hearing and seeing all sorts of strange talk, and even, support for Clinton, as if she’s some kind of saint ?

Disdain for Donald, as if he was literally, the duck who bears his name, being dismissed by everything & everyone as a blowhard, who is destroying the …

” Good Ol’ Values ”

of the ever so … ONCE GREAT U.S. of A-holes …..

Well, he seems to be doing a great job of making it easy to believe that America is filled with them !!!

At least, at the levels of society, where he and his pals are at !

Did I say pals ?

Hmmmm, well, they are clearly NOT SO PALLY now, or, are they … ???

I even heard a man tell me that he feels that Trump is doing, whatever it is his campaigning does, to help Clinton win ?!!!?

Well, anything’s possible when dealing with the multitude of …
Blood-sucking insects, that define the word, Poli – Tics’ ….. !!!!!!

It’s amazing to me though, that when elections are not at the forefront of everyones’ minds, that people seem to, pretty much, all concur that politicians are liars and cheats, and are not to be trusted, but, when Election time does come around, especially in as influential a country, as America is ….

People suddenly find ways to validate their supporting, as many now claim, the better of the evils being offered up …. ?!?

Well, now that I am watching the new Lucifer TV series, one has to wonder if people, as a matter of course, will accept wickedness on some …. ” Just because … “, basis, rather than deny wickedness, as soon as they sniff any sense of it, which you’d think a logical person would do, but in 2016, logical behaviour now seems to be as rare, as a Trump Rally that preaches love and unity, well almost … !!!

There are one or two stand up people left, but, I do literally mean, ” The Odd “, one or two !!!!!

Peoples’ memory spans, and / or, ability to dismiss things that they know deep down in their hearts, that they are uncomfortable with, is truly astonishing … !!!!!

…. but hey, we’re al about to get penned in, if Trump, or, Boko Haram, or ISIS, get their way right.

Did you get what I did ?

The best play on words I saw recently, is that the west put the IS … in CRISIS … !!!!!

One to think on …….

The wheels have definitely, been set in motion, via Mr. Trumps’ rather, INFLATED EGO, and rhetoric !!!!!

However, instead of censoring, or brandishing him as being essentially ….

” Brutally Frank “, with his opinions, be they, for the camera or not, people are letting his talk, limit their rational thinking, in my opinion !

It is unwise to suggest that he can’t win this presidential race, simply because of the level of monetary influence and power, that he has, it is also unwise to trust in people who are using, YOUR MONEY, to finance their bid for office !

Unless you are gonna be able to influence their policy movements, if they get the BIG JOB !!!!!

” Go Fund Me “, type campaigns, for presidential hopefuls, is so crazy to me, that I really don’t even think I can express what I feel about individuals, parting with their, hard earned cash, to put it into, what are, essentially, hot air balloons, which would be a suitable description for the likes of all those running their chops about doing what exactly ???

Making America … GREAT again,
Making America … Unified & Peaceful
Making America … Proud again

Blah di Blah Blah …
F’ing blah ….. !!!!!

I think people need to take a second, and maybe, check through the histories of the combatants, and really assess how trustworthy these people are, from Clintons admission of being essentially, down with the types of individuals who stood for the ideals of Eugenics and basically, white supremacy …..

Such as, Margaret Sanger, look her up, the video is somewhere to be found on the, “Inter-web”, and then maybe, all these women chatting the …

“Oh well, it’s about time a woman got into power in the US.” … CROTCH … !!!

…. might wanna, just check her credentials, from a historical standpoint, and then maybe re-think, just a little bit … ?!?

The sterilisation of black people, appears to have been one of Sangers’ beliefs, as being beneficial to the human races’ progression !?!

Can a woman who claimed to support such a person, be suitable for a country that can’t even get past colour, when it comes to the Oscars ?!?

As said, these days, I choose not to express my point of view so much, which is a personal choice, as it’s become clear that, it’s really becoming somewhat of a literal

FREE FOR ALL …. out there !!!

… from sexuality, and the progressive growth in the pushing of certain imagery, into the psyches’ of the generations to follow, to the continual, confusing situation regarding Muslims ?!?

Having just returned from the UK, for all the apparent, Anti-Muslim Sentiment, I really saw, no level of panic amongst those walking next to, and or, working with Muslims.

In fact, England seems, as it always does, to be a bed of roses, COLD & POOR Roses, for the most part !!!!!

However, nothing too thorny was on display ?!?

So, when the politicians, or aspiring ones, like Mr. Trump, run their gums about the same people, who they seem, moments later, to be happy to be shaking hands, and doing business deals with, people should just, STOP and THINK, for a second, before jumping on the first train to, ” Hatesville’ “, behind some talk that essentially, garners attention, and stirs up a melting pot, that, the normal, ” Average Joe “, has to dip his hand in and confront, on a daily basis, which is one, that in all reality, isn’t necessarily one, that scaremongers, like Nigel Farage & their ilk, keep spouting vitriol about, that states a need to retain, some sense I guess, of Sovereignty, in this, ever changing world of ours.

I always find it interesting, when a man on the street, like say, my good self, tells it as it is, and is, Immediately labelled as being ….

Aggressive, Vicious, or even, BRUTAL, in my use of language and expression ?

Well, now y’all DEFINITELY KNOW, what brutal talk is … and it ain’t coming from the likes of me !!!!!

It’s coming from a man whose in, designer, tailored, bespoke suits, and who is a business mogul who has buildings named after himself !!!

The type of man who has a TV Show, that many, who are trying to slam him now, have probably indulged in watching, and, dare I say, found entertaining !

I actually, quite like Donald Trump, simply because …..

If he’s lying about his feelings, to get to the BIG SEAT, he’s pretty good at it !!!

However, if he is exposing the REAL Attitudes, of those in the corridors of power, particularly, Republicans, and garnering support from Americans, for speaking the things that most, have been and are currently thinking, but won’t say, then I applaud him, because he’s about the ONLY one doing it, including Mr. Obama !!!!!

Mr. Trump has done so, in a way that isn’t covered in sweet talk, to get people to take a nice, small slice of the cake, while he eats big !

You know why …. ?

Because …..

He already eats BIG, and is basically telling the world, if I get to be THE MAN, there’s about to be some,

REAL CHANGE, UP IN THIS BITCH … !!!!!!

… and, the poor may not even get any of the loose change, that he ever has in his pockets, i’d suggest, if he ever has any loose change in his pockets, at all now !!!

The warning is a STARK ONE !!!

Things may just become, REALLY BRUTAL, if people don’t start to recognise that, nice suits, ties and fancy speeches, do not, good leaders make ….. !!!

What does ?

Well, if you can pick one, throughout American, Political History, then feel free to let me know ……

For the meantime, I suggest you look beyond the fancy talk, rhetoric and Political Hoopla, that is going on, and see through the show, cos they are all very impressive actors, who know how to give you a … DAMNED GOOD SHOW … !!!

but be careful of, what it all bodes …… !!!!!

Signing off for now, as I ease back & chill, whilst listening to some cool sounds, from the hands of Nitin Sawhney, and funnily enough, one of the tracks that came on whilst I was constructing this post was called,

” Serpents ” ……

I’ll say no more ……

For Now ….

Stay Blessed folks.

” 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 !?! “

I mean … SERIOUSLY … !!! … written by Big Virge 2/10/2013

Yes Yes Motha Fukdicks !!!!!

I am in contemplative mode currently, after the usual abusive tactics being used by ignoramuses, online, and in this, at times, rather infuriating life !!!

Much like the Monolith, song lyrics, posted in my previous post, I have to say that there appears to be a dearth of humility, and sadly, acceptance in people, right now.

Pussyholes running for cover when they are uncovered as being, lil’ hateful beings, who clearly, as per the, Jus Allah lyric, about Dave Chappelle, be hating, “Themselves”.

However, in quite a few of the cases that i’ve been party to, or, hearing about from others, it’s not difficult to see why !!!

I actually had some, dumb trick, profess to, “NEVER Backing down !!!”.

Okay like … SERIOUSLY Bitch !!!!!

Now, I don’t like to refer to women in that way, but, SERIOUSLY ….

Fuck That Chit !!!!!

There are some seriously fuk’d up BEAAAATTTCHHEESSSS runnin’ around town right about now, however, the scales dem’ are balanced, believe it !!!!!

Some man get so caught up with these, “Glitch filled Bitches”, they be fucking, that, they be acting up, as if the fact that they’ve managed to get their cock in their mouths, should, automatically garner, some sense of approval from outside parties, as if they need someone to affirm to them that, they’ve got that dime piece that breeds jealousy in others, because she’s, oh so special !!!!!

Errr, SERIOUSLY ???!???

Well, the answer is NO !!!
So, wake the fuck up and smell that shit you peddling !!!

There also seems to be some kind of belief in dropping lines, that, indicate a sense of humour, that is reflective of the warped sense of thinking, or, (More accurately, Non-Thinking), that seems to drive these comments/questions, that, if a level of thought were applied, would not be thrown about as if they would never offend, or, upset the parties being mentioned ?!?

I mean, in fairness and all seriousness, yes, these things cannot be quantified so easily, but, humour is not something that can be taken as a given, because … YOU … Think it’s funny ….. !!!

Even between, long time friends, one has to try to establish, that, The Vibes are cool, thus, the intent of, said joke, or comment, will be received in the manner it’s meant.

Again, not so easy to establish, but, that’s the point of communicating in a manner, that offers some sense of where the person who is the subject of your humour, is at, before making statements, that, could be easily misconstrued.

It is a Fuck em’, kind of vibe, from US Congress, to the, ” Average Joe “, at the moment, attacks of all sorts are being made, without any thought of the consequences of these attacks, from Ms America, to, shoot-outs in shopping malls … !!!!

…. where has the consideration of others gone to people ….. ?!!!?

People … Stooooooppppp Frontin’ !!!

It’s seems to now be, sadly, prevalent in many older heads, assessment, of interactions they now have to contend with.

Thinkers apparently, should allow for the nonsensical behaviour, and commentary being levelled at them, by those who, clearly, have lost the, basic logic, that dictates a level of rational behaviour and common sense that should prevail when things get a little of track, due to, (Let’s say), a choice that has been made, that provides evidence that confirms how ignorant and harmful, such actions can, and invariably, tend to be.

Reacting is part of all of us, however, “Thought”, is what separates ignorant reaction, from calm, collected responses.

The idea that people are not all capable of recognising these things, in 2K13, is indeed, a little difficult to now accept as being, The Truth.

We are all capable of making choices, or, having opinions, but, apparently, in most “Thought”, then disappears, or, is dismissed as being, “Unnecessary” … ??!??

Claims of doing your best, when you clearly haven’t, again confirm, an unwillingness, to look in the mirror and DEAL.

So sad, but, so very true now, that it feels like an epidemic of ignorance is growing to … Gargantuan Proportions … !!!!!

We ALL, have a duty to ourselves and, in the grand scheme of things, ” HUMANITY “, to act with more universally, acceptable ideals, behavioural traits and essentially, “Love”, for each other !!!

I use the word loosely, and will end with a couple more questions ….

Do you REALLY … LOVE YOURSELF … ???

and if so, when did the realisation that you did occur huh ???
5 ?
15 ?
25 ?
35 ?
45 ?

…. or maybe, as is more likely to be the case, when you become old and grey and, pussy or dick, or, who you feel you need to impress, no longer stresses your head as being, THAT Important….. ???

Some will find, “That Love for Self”, earlier for sure, but, some it seems, right now, need to go through the whole …..

“Those who won’t hear, must FEEL”

…. vibration, which is not a positive choice, it is so far from that, that it’s root cause, can be so damaging, that, the feeling becomes another quickly thrown away, denial.

People, what can I tell ya …

It’s all good folks, believe me, WITH ME, because pain and joy receive, equal amounts of attention, but, this idea that ALL is good and right with you, needs to just be tempered and checked folks …..

Cut OUT the Ignorant Quotes, that are passed of as … “Jokes” …
Cut OUT the … “Passive Aggressive” … Bullshit …
and start to have some … “Consideration” … for OTHERS …

I’ve been labelled as not having much compassion in me, but, hear what, all these words, poems and posts, actually do, come from a place of … LOVE … folks

Hard to believe … ???

Well, I can dig it, because … “Tough Love” … is not the ticket, most, want to buy …..

The obvious question is … WHY … ?

Well, that’s for y’all to decide and live by, but, right now, don’t jump on the bandwagon of foolish pride & ignorance, to preserve some sense of self-worth ….

…. that comes from, in my humble opinion, “Love for Yourself”, not another pair of eyes, or thighs, but …. YOURSELF.

I was told a few years ago, that, happiness cannot be found in others ….

Hmmm, would seem a fair statement, but, are your actions, statements and intentions, actually, fair to others these days ?!?

On that note, i’m gone leave ya fa now ….

…. but, if you’re one who feels that everyone is on ya case currently, for no apparent reason, it’s probably because of envy and jealousy, and some abundance of personal issues !!!!!

Keep ya heads up, and, run your game !!!

Keep it …. ” Tight and Right !!!”

Never mind … The Blind …

…. but, if you are inclined to try and … OPEN … blinkered eyes, remember that, there is a price you’ll probably pay, and, these days, it’s sniping attacks and subtle attempts to mess your head !!!

My final words on this are simply

” DON”T LET EM’ !!! ”

Bless up and … One Love people ….

BELIEVE IT …. “One Love” ….

“Films & Violence” … A poem written by Big Virge 10/11/2004

A Re-post, before this site closes, who knows for how long, or when, but, here is one of those pieces I posted on here, in the good ol’ … Early Days ….

Enjoy folks … !!!!!

Ya know …

This Violence thing ….
just isn’t in me … !!!
I’m just wondering when …
you masses will see ,,, ?

That wars are like whores ….
“Without” … A Pussy … !!!!!!

See … it really is … “Futile”
to be messin’ with me …

I’ve got logic like Spock
and … Big Ears …
Don’t you see … !?!

Yes …
The name is … ” Big V ”
and this style I believe … ?
is called … “Slam poetry !?!”
and I hear that … to win …
it helps if … you’re …

……….. FUNNY …….. !!!!!

Well …..
I hate to … Disappoint …

But …
That’s just … missing … the point !

I try to write things
that are built to … ” Anoint ” …
An … “Elixir of Pictures”
in terms of … My … Scripture …

That Affect … your mind …
Like … Smoking … “A Joint” … !!!!!

See …
One day it was Yoda …
who said to me ….

‘Virgil my son
this poetry thing
is your DESTINY !!!”

Like Luke I said ….

“Maaaannnn,
that just isn’t me
performing this thing
they call, Slam Poetry !?!”

So ……
Now that this veil …
is …. Covering me …

I feel like Darth Vader …
with forces … So DARK … !!!!!

I keep checkin’ my head …
for that … 666 … Mark … !!!!!!!

But …….
God’s force … I … ” Believe ” …
just keeps … “Loving Me” …
So … “My Soul” … like my mind
will always be …. ” FREE ” ….

“Violence” … surrounds me …
yet … “Angels in my Heart” …
but it’s …… “Lucipher” ……..
Don’t you …. see …. !?!?!?!

who sits back with a … “Fag” …
looking on …. ” Patiently ” ….
Awaiting …. Those …. “Fools”

………….. Wanting …………….

“Destruction’ …… of …… ” WE ” …..

“We” …. as in …. ” PEOPLE ”

So …. What’s Your … ” Destiny ? ”

It’s … “Lost Souls” …
who’ll be … DAMNED …
for ……. ETERNITY ……………………

So …….
What DO they … Achieve … !???!

See ……
I’ve found … NO Relief …
and now … “TRULY” … Believe …
A … “Great Many” … in this world
just keep being …. ” Deceived ” ….
by … BULL**** … and … Lies
that the ….. Media ….. “FEEDS”

While these … “Draculas” … ” SUCK ! ”
It’s my heart that just …. “BLEEDS”

Thus My Words …
search for … “TRUTH”
with …. ” INTENSITY ” …. !!!!!

while Violence … now … ” Reigns ”
in each … ” Big City ” … !!!!!

EVEN ……..
Young Girls will … “KILL” … !!?!!
Stab a gay … in his chest …
or …. could it be …. This …. ???

Is she just … “Re-enacting” …
what she saw in … Kill Bill … !???!

“We told you before,
Quentin’s films are TOO VIOLENT !!!!!”

The censors … Complain …
but … who is the … Tyrant … ?!?

A man using film … to …
“Reflect” … our … Environment

Or …. “Overpaid MP’s” ….
who NEED … Early Retirement !!!!!

So … Who do you … TRUST … !?!

“Ashes to Ashes”

…….. or ………

“Dust to Dust”

An Icepick … in your chest … !!!
in a … FIT … of … ” LUST ” … !?!

Well …….
It’s my … Basic Instinct …
That allows me to … “Drink” …

I’ve got … “A Shield of Steel” …
But … My name ain’t … “BATFINK” … !!!!!!

See …
In these few words …
“My Truth” … is …

…. REVEALED …. !!!!!

and like … Bruce …
I survive …..

On my … “Boy Scout” … Appeal … !!!
but now it seems ……….
Like Lambs ……..

You’re all … “quiet and silent” …
as I draw …. analogies ….
from movies … with … VIOLENCE …

So … when this …. Inscription ….
is … “FINALLY” … “DONE” …

Will I be … ” The ONE ” … ?
who’s … INJECTED … your mind
with thoughts of … ” Freedom ” … ?!?

Well …..
Be careful what you wish for … !!!
cos’ i’m the … “Wishmasters’ Son” … !!!
and will take your … Last Breath …
if you wish to … Retain …
Your … ” Youthful Reflection ” …

So …..
What … Reflects … WHAT … !?!?!?

Is it … Life … “Within Movies” … ?

…………….. or ………………….. ?????

Movies that …. ” Reflect ” ….
what goes on in … OUR LIVES … ?

I’m not Arnie …. !!!
BELIEVE ME ……… !!!!!!!!
What’s TRUE … in a … LIE … ?!?

I’m a … “Lyrical” … Prince …
but … My Doves … “DO NOT CRY” … !!!!!!

It’s … ” PEACE ” … That I LIVE FOR … !!!

So this VIOLENCE …

…….. “ MUST DIE ” ……. !!!!!!!

A bit of … “Here”, leading to some of … “There” … Philly Diaries 1 … written by Big Virge 20/6/2013

Yes Yes folks ….

What’s good in your zone … ???

Well, in mine, down the south coast of Bim, surrounded by white folks, it ain’t a joke, as the rogues looking to get a quick pay off, are getting close !!!

Prior to leaving these shores recently, it had become evident that many south coast beach front properties were being robbed, even the Jamaican PM’s fam had a safe taken, apparently !!!

Now, the interesting part of that story is that, in speaking to a Jamaican buddy, who has a business here, recently, his reaction was most interesting when hearing about the robbery of Jamaican Dignitaries ….

His reaction was,

“Good, she and her family continue to leave people impoverished whilst living a lavish lifestyle, and then, have the cheek to claim to care about the poor people of Jamaica !!!”

Harsh right !!!?!!!

Well, upon reflection, one would need to assess any level of sympathy you have for people of such ilks, and those, within the hierarchies of society ……..

I do not advocate, robbing and teefing on any level, however, much like Chris Rock done say bout’ beating woman,

“I ain’t about to beat them, but, I will shake the shit out of a bitch, to wake her the fuck up !!!” …. (paraphrased of course) ….

So, in applying it to Barbados and the slow, but sure, rise in crime, who deserves to be robbed, or, better still, who can afford to be robbed uh people ???

I just picked up some food in the Lanterns Mall, and had a discussion with the girls, who were quick to say that, you know what, all these poor people, robbing who they think have money, well, as one of those who isn’t, poverty stricken, but, who still needs to get paid to maintain, I would say this to these young brothers :

“Fellas, is it me, or, is it those around me, who are affecting your ability to live as you’d like ?!?”

“Are your ideals of what you NEED, in perspective and logical ?!?”

….. come on guys, robbing your own is not cool, even if they may live a little differently, note, differently, NOT BETTER, material things, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT …… make a Happy Person !!!

Hard as it is to believe, dont let the big cars, trophy wives and husbands, fool you, behind closed doors, many of these people are some of the most unhappy, twisted, lost souls you will ever find, believe in that … !!!

….. just look at how some of these REALLY HIGH PROFILE actors die, not peacefully, in many cases.

Thus, a quick RIP to James Gandolfini !!!

I know i’m gonna get a WHAT !?!, from most people, but, never watched a full episode of The Sopranos, but, in anything i’ve seen with him, he was always very good, and by initial tributes, seemed to be a very cool dude offscreen !!!

R.I.P. JG

So, talking of cool people, and the US, here is my first instalment of my Philadelphia diaries …..

However, due to this news of men moving in my area, waving and pointing guns at workers, during the day, I have to start with a conversation I had with my new, Jamaican, U.S. buddy, “Reggae Surge”, from G-Town radio, who spoke on a situation he was part of, not so long ago in Jamaica, having been raised there, but, having spent a lengthy period away from the island.

He explained how he had returned to JA, for a holiday, and was in his old neighbourhood, so, had decided to go for a walk in his old district, late one night. He got into what would of been an old stomping ground, and said that he felt as if there was danger in the air, but, due to his being Jamaican, felt comfortable to carry on walking, but, having got to an old block of his, was quickly, in essence, scoped by a guy on a stoop, who, immediately spoke to him in a very aggressive tone, only for him to be shouted at by a man behind him, who knew Surge, from way back, who quickly explained to the man,

“Yow, he is so and so’s nephew/whatever, jus cool nah man, and let man roll !!!”.

Surge said he was told in no uncertain terms afterwards, “Don’t move so bredrin, Jamaica has changed, so, cool you cool, but, watch yourself !!!”.

Now, Jamaica seems to get a bad rep, I have yet to go, but, it does sound as though people need to recognise, from a global perspective, the dangers of being a … “Have Not”, in todays’ society of … ” Bling Blang Wrong !!! ”

I had a conversation in my hotel in Philly, with a couple from Connecticut, so, ofcourse, I brought up the subject of the Newton shootings with this elderly couple, now, it was clear that the husband was wary, but, had asked me for local info, thinking I was a local, but, when I started on the school shooting, his wife/partner, was quick to express her sadness and dismay at such a crazy happening, but, it always begs the question in my mind, it’s fine when we black folks have got it going on in our neighbourhoods, but, once it encroaches on white folks bliss-filled, neighbourhoods, it’s a SERIOUS matter, that needs to be addressed, with immediate effect !!!

Hmmmm, one has to hope that these days, less of these primitive attitudes exist, but, in reality, it would seem, as it has always done, as though the importance of safety for people, does not revolve around black communities.

Sad, but, I think, ultimately true.

In leaving this subject for now, I was explaining to the girls in Lanterns. that, the mindset of the people robbing, is seriously corrupted, when, as i’ve quoted before, men like RZA speak it loud and clear in interviews ….

Ask a F’ing Nigga to go rob some OTHER Niggas, they’re in the car before you, but ask them to go after Police, or, heaven forbid, Politicians, and those within the Corporate World, who hold the REAL MONEY, and who truly live, in my opinion, way beyond their needs, not only is there …. silence ……….

….. but, these same apparent, Bad Bwoy, Street Thugs and Killers, become very distant.

I remember reading a piece of my art, which speaks on Black on Black issues, to a young black man, who lived up the road from me in London, one day, only to hear,

“Very Good, but, you should be careful, speaking THAT STUFF !!!”

….. as if, trying to uplift the mindset of our people, was some kind of …

” Cardinal Sin !!! ”

I really hope, as i’ve just been told, that, when corrupt practises are being found to be true, in echelons, above and beyond the levels of crime that are clearly, disturbing more and more people now, that, the people of this island stand up and be counted, because the best way to stop a lot of this foolishness is to stand firm collectively, and ensure that these rogue criminals, be they street, or, more importantly, officials charged with peoples’ safety, that, they are challenged publicly/internationally, if needs be, a la the ongoing rape debacle of the two English Women, and with immediate effect !!!!!

Don’t get tie up people, I am not saying, try and play, ” Daddy Big Bollocks “, if an intruder comes into your home with weaponry, but, I hope you all, whether white, black, rich or poor, get the gist of what i’m saying !!!!!

Don’t wait until,

” It happens to you !!! “, to be concerned.

…. be concerned NOW, as you should always be & as i’ve said recently, people, stop with all this, divisive bullchit !!!

…and …

” Try Your Best Yes …
Your … VERY … BEST !!!
to make a … ” DIFFERENCE ”

So, to my struggling brothers & sisters ….

As my big brother, “Jabba”, from Jabsrocking, done show me …

“Who Jah Bless, No-one curse …
Why you want to steal … ?
from your Brother, ” FIRST ??? ”

Stop the Violence … !!!

&

Stop the Fukry … !!!!!!!!!!

Come on people …. !!!

One love & Bless up y’all …

Virge
