Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

” Open Season ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

Hmmmm ….

Well, Olympics or not !!!!!

COME ON Usain …. !!!!!!

Certain subjects, Nah get dropped …. !!!!!

The cops and this whole …
Black Lives Matter Phenomena ….

Well,

Opinions are a plenty fa sure … !!!!!

So, of course, I have a few ………….

However, this piece was written soon after, the ….. (not so much mentioned) ….. Walter Scott EXECUTION, by some extraordinarily, ” Trigger Happy “, cop !?!?!

Anyhow, much surrounds these events, like different attitudes that come to light from people, of course, from races not directly affected by these horrendous killings of people, who, innocent or not, don’t get a chance to explain themselves to anybody but ….

Well …..

BULLETS, or the apparently, ” Humane Hands “, of law enforcement officers …. !! ? !!

Crazy ish’ people ….. ?!?

…. and of course, London now increasing it’s armed police presence, coincidentally, days before an incident in Russell Square, and a Black Lives Matter protest, that affected people trying o get to Heathrow, for a number of personal reasons on Friday morning ….

NOT …. !!!

…. the subtlest way to get your message heard, but, it has drawn media attention, so, England ISN’T, quite the bed of tolerance and unified thinking, as has been so readily reported, and argued …. since the arrival of people of different races, to basically, every arena in which the media presents itself, sports and EVEN, politics, so, things are fine right … ?!?

Weellllllll …..

Maybe not, if todays protest suggests there to be things, to be concerned about ???

The subsequent, television coverage, had an interview was with an activist, who was an articulate young lady, who was explaining that, although killings of the style in the US, are honestly, not so prevalent ….. in the UK …..

Smaller country, different laws ….. etcetera etcetera ….

Convictions in the instances of police inefficiency, which results in loss of black lives, are basically, non-existent, and have been, for a considerable time now ….

So, more armed police will result in what, exactly, less gun play … ???

I think NOT, but, time will tell ……

and one final thing here, with regard to policing globally, i’m talking the extreme cases of loss of life, but, let’s not pretend that general interactions with police are being run with the professionalism, and, public courtesies, that people should expect from those who apparently …. SERVE US …. ?!!!?

The ideal of how people are stereotyped by colour, also lends itself to a very subtle, but effective, form of white superiority and control ….

So …. do ….. ???

White Glass Ceilings exist still …. ???

…. in the hierarchies of these arenas where people of varying, darker skinned races, are now seemingly, “Fitting in”, quite nicely, and doing good things …….

Just questions … ???

However, there are divisions within those same, different shades, that aren’t always so readily brought to light, because of again, the veneer of … well ….

” Getting Along ” ……

Well, as a man who has grown with all types of races, nationalities & colours, which applies to the ladies too, there are certain mixtures that aren’t so common ….

Not ReeeeeEALLY’ …

…. but people just play it down, because sticking to ones’ own, is the way to go …..

Really … ???

… with so many varieties in the world to choose from …

Not everyman wants a … BIG BOOTY, or, fair-skinned, SAME SKINNED … !!! … ting’, to get his groove on with, as with the ladies now clearly.

So, don’t, for one second.

…. think that words you hear, indicate a man who does not see the positive effects of integration, from business, to personal interactions now, however, things in essence, remain at the core, the same …. and do need to be, i’d say, ” Re-Arranged “, just a bit ……

and one of the things at the top of my list, is the subject of the lyrics in this poem …..

So, as the Olympics get in full swing, with it’s opening ceremony today in Rio …..

There are a few things that are … Open …
right about now,

So, I warn you, NOW …

DO NOT ….

…. press play, unless you’re ready to deal with REAL subject matter …. that’s leaving lives SHATTERED …. !!!!!

While …..

#BlackLivesMatter …… ???

“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.

The Black James Bond (Street Version !) … written 29/11/2005 Performed by Big Virge

Okay so….

I’m much less inclined to share my views of how things run currently, because people are either in “Denial-Land” … or, are in some, “Self-Righteous”, fukry’ land, where their only form of response are retorts of well… for want of a better word, ” Spiteful ” … in nature

But, as insignificant as it is in the grand scheme of the madness that continues toe ensue, across the globe, in various ways

Has their been some kind of Ku Klux re-union, that has avoided the all seeing eye of the media. because, once again, migrant talk seems to be incessantly, spoken about, from the people, who migrated, then dictated how nations should be, in lands where they were, essentially …

INVADERS, and I don’t mean of the space kind, although, these days, it really does seem like some white folks are chameleons, shape-shifters, and the most devious kind of bullshit spitters … !!!!

This time, it’s Bond, and one of it’s new writers, a certain, Jewish chap, by the name of Anthony Horowitz, who according to Wikipedia, was ….

” born in Paddington, London, into a wealthy Jewish family, and in his early years lived an upper-middle class lifestyle. ”

who seems to have the low down on who and what’s … ” Street ” … and thus, made reference in a Daily mail interview, to the fact that, NOT ONLY, is Idris Elba, too street to play Bond, but also, not, ” Suave Enough ” ….

Amazingly, having read the news this morning, I now see that he has apologised now ….

Hmmmm …..

Why because,

FOOT in Mouth of White man, is causing him to be deemed a racist ????

So, it seems, he still doesn’t wanna say what’s really on his mind ……. !!!

Poor … Oops,

That should be, WEALTHY, Confused, Mr. Horowitz …

Folks, his background is worth checking out, if Wikipedia is accurate, regarding the echelons of society, this individual comes from …..

Now I am NO ADVOCATE, for a Black Bond, but, Anthony Horowitz needs to shut his claat Fo’ REAL !!!!!

Let’s get this straight … !!!

Idris is … ” Sorry ” … “Too Street” …

and apparently, NOT … “Suave Enough ” ?!?

LMFAOL ….. !!!

What a joke !

Just say he’s, ” Too Black ” … man, cut the bullchit’, and let’s cut to the chase.

Oh and obviously, when I say … TOO BLACK, i’m being, FACETIOUS … !!!

Just the ol’, Willie Lynch Syndrome, kicked in, for a sec there …. !!!!!!

So, Mr. Horowitz has written, having been, ” COMMISSIONED “, by the “Fleming Estate”, NO LESS … !!!!

I REPEAT …. The Fleming Estate !!!!

…. some new, Bond script / book or crutch …. ” Trigger Mortis ” ….

GREAT … !!!

Adrian Lester is okay apparently ?

…. but, Idris is some different shade of dark, that is less acceptable, and INSANELY, somehow, less capable of playing Bond ….

Sounds a bit like the classic, English Racists line and defence …..

“Your alright mate, but, it’s the other blacks that are f’ckd up !!!!!” …. Bullchite !!!!!

What an ass !!!!!

…. who needs it handed back to him, so he can eat the shit he be talking man !!!

He may have actually sealed the deal now, with his ignorant statement and sudden apology, as if, as he claims, due to his … ” Clumsily ” … delivered, use of language, which, hmmm … i’m pretty sure he makes plenty of money, for doing.

I hope Idris gets the Rasshole’ role now, because that should be lots of fun on set, for, ” Mr. Horodick’ ” … if his Trigger Mortis gets made into a film … as he tries to explain how he would like Idris to be a little, ” Whiter “, when saying lines, that, ANY actor, worth their pay cheque, should be able to deliver, and tailor, to exhibit the qualities of said, character ….

I got something for him though … PRICK … !!!!!

So what now …. ?!?

…. because Hulk Hogan & Trump and all the other, bigoted white folks, are now returning to just expressing their bigotry, for all to see, he felt he could run such Ignant’ talk …. ???

To be fair, i’m about more frankness, but, this is the worst kind of racism/racist…
,
The one that tries to shield itself behind, Political Incorrectness, or Correctness, and then makes the whole,

“It wasn’t meant like that” …. bullchit claim

Eedyats’ like him, would get my respect if they’d just, wear their Klan Hoods out in the open, for us to see, and run their talk, cos’ at least I and the rest of us, would know what we’re dealing with …..

Make him gwaarn …

I got sumtin’ for he and his breed of … ” Ignant Ass People “, who seem to be all too prevalent in amongst this entertainment & arts industry, that is so accepting, all of sudden, of us, darker skinned peoples …..

I think … NOT …. !!!!!

I know that the ladies got to have an opinion on this Fukry … cos’ now he’s the … ” Hot Ticket ” … I know many would love to see Mr. Elba play the, Great White, Fictional Legend …. !!!!!

Are any of the people who rule Hollywood, told, when they go to roles, or provide scripts, that, they are hmmmm ….

“Too Jewish” … I wonder … ????

Chuh ….., as per the below post/s …

The Double Standards continue …..

So, here it is folks…..

I never thought of it, when writing it, ten odd years ago, as, anything more than throw away words about this, ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS Ideal, but hey, I was merely the vessel ….

So, if he thinks Idris is Street, well, like Jack says in the original Batman reboot…..

“Wait til’ he gets a load of me !”

“What Do You See ?” … (The words) … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/3/2005

So … What do you see … ?
when … you look at yourself … ?

Do you see an … ” Image ” … ?
or a … ” Picture of Health ” … ?

or the …
” Fakest ” … of people
who’d rather see … ” Wealth ” … ?

Dunno bout’ … you … ?

but …
I see … A Brother …
who’s from a … ” Hard School ” … !!!

A school of … ” Hard Knocks ” …
Surrounded by ….. ” FOOLS ” ….. !!!!!!

Some … who’ve been drowned …
in this … ” Western Whirlpool ” … !!!!

See … it’s easy to blame
My Problems on … ” Colour ” …
but these days … I feel …
like … problems i’ve got …
come from sisters and brothers …
who live for … ” THEMSELVES ” …

REGARDLESS … of colour … !!!!!

But ….
DON’T … Get Me Wrong … !!!
being black … can be … TOUGH … !!!!!

cos’ …
white folks just … ” Use Us ” …
and place us … ” In Cuffs ” …

But ….
People are People … !!!

Some Blacks … do the stuff …
that leads me to … ” Thinking ” …

Some blacks …
You … CAN’T TRUST … !!!!!

” Ashes to Ashes ” …
or … ” Dust to Dust ” …
when I look at myself …
Sometimes … I just … CUSS … !!!

Why am I … in this form … ?!?
Why am I … not the norm … ?!?

and …
What’s with these … ” Racists ” … ???
who wish I …. ” Wasn’t Born ” …. ?!?!?

Is what you see … REAL … ???
or … do you … “conceal” …
The Truth … from yourself …

While you eat …
” Wagon Wheels ” … !?!?!

That line …
Was a … Joke … !!!

But …..
That verse … ” Provokes ” …

A …. ” REALITY CHECK ” …

for … ALL of you folks … !!!

This here … is a poem …
That’s Searching for … TRUTH …

So …
Are you … ” Pretentious ” … ?
or …. Are you just … YOU … ?

and ….

What does that mean … ?!?
Can you … DEFINE YOU … !?!

or …

Are you a … ” Victim ” … ?

Redundant of … PROOF …

that …
What you … ” Believe ” …
Confirms you as … TRUE … !!!!!

TRUE … in your actions
TRUE … in your thoughts
TRUE … in the luxuries

that you have … sought … ???

See …
These are the questions
” WE ALL ” … have to face … !!!

But … do you face them … ?
in the … ” Cold Light of Day ” … ?

Or …
Do you see them … ?
But Still …….. “shy away” …

Then … jump on a train …
for a … ” Quick ” … away day …

But ….
That’s NOT … The Ticket … !!!

These are … ” Poetic Lines ” …
with … No Need to … ” Picket ” … !!!

It’s … PAINFUL … I know …
to … ” Spiritually ” … go …
to the … ” Depth of ” …

….. ” Your Psyche ” …..

Without some … ” New Nikes ” … !!!

Are you laughing … ” Politely … ?
or maybe … you might be … ?

Listening …….. silently ……………….

cos’ that line … just might be … ?
PIERCING …. ” Your Psyche ” ….

You …
Don’t … have to like me …
I’m … ” Used to that now ” …

But … Liking Yourself …
is … ” What I’m About ” … !!!

cos’ …
If you like … YOU … !!!

You’ll like … ” Others Too ” … !!!
and this will ….. ” Pass on ” ………..
to those who have … ” Youth ” …

cos’ they …
NEED … ” THE TRUTH ” …
to make the right moves …
and then … ” Our Society ” …
Might just …. IMPROVE …. !!!!

A poem … like this …
can cover … So Much …

Not just ….
” Such and Such ” …

But …
” Deep-Rooted ” … FEARS … !!!
We … ALL … Need To Touch … !!!

Like ….

What’s … REALLY … in you ?
What’s … REALLY … in me ?

How … doing these things …
can … set our minds … FREE … !!!

FREE of …….. Constraints ….
That … ” Control ” … how we be …

FREE … to create …
A world … ” Full of Peace ” …

” Freedom ” … to greet …
EVERYBODY … we meet …
from … London to Paris …
to … ” Sesame Street ” …

Now …
This … ” Final Verse ” …
Should … make this … COMPLETE … !!!

Be … TRUE TO YOURSELF … !!!
Be … REAL WITH YOURSELF … !!!

ACCEPT …. in yourself ….
The cards … You Have Dealt … !!!

and when you’ve done this …
Take a … ” Look at Yourself ” …

and …
If you feel … FREE … !!!

“Here We Go” … A Poem written by Big Virge 13/7/2005

Following on from the below post …. (Pt. II)

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)

Well …..

HERE WE GO … !!!!!

It didn’t … take long … !!!
for … ” Political Players ” …
to sing … ” Dud Songs ” … !!!

London’s ……..
been … BOMBED … !!!!!

“It was, The Muslims, all along !”

Excuse me … Mr. Clarke …
I think you … May Be Wrong … ?!?

The … ” Home Secretary ” …
is … Jumping on … The Ferry …
that’s saying to … ” Muslims ” …

They’d better be … WARY … !!!!!!!!

But …
Let’s get things … CLEAR … !!!

They’ve … ALWAYS FEARED …

Men with … A Dark Appearance …
and a …. ” Lengthy Beard ” ….

But ….
Many now …
are … ” British ” … !!!

Adopting … Muslim ways …
who live their life … ” In Hope ” …
of seeing … ” Peaceful Days ” …

Their wish …
is for … Some Guidance …
WITHOUT … Old English Tricks … !!!

That’s what some show … DEFIANCE … !!!

This Country … NEEDS A FIX … !!!!!

A Fix of … ” TRUTH ” … !!!
A Fix of … ” PROOF ” … !!!

A Fix of things ….
That AREN’T … See Through …

Am I getting …
Through to you … ?!?

I’m … NO MUSLIM …
I’m … NO JEW …
I’m … Just ME … !!!

But …..
What are … ” YOU ” … ?!?

What … Do You … ???
” Believe ” … is true … !?!

Don’t you think … ?
We Need … More Clues … ?!?

I think we ……..
Should Be … ” More Shrewd ” …

Instead of … ” Jumping ” … Into shoes …
That … DON’T FIT RIGHT … !!!

So … what’s your view … ???

CAREFUL NOW … !!!
You’d best be … ” cool ” …
cos’ … views you share …
could … ” DAMAGE YOU ” … !?!

We’re being told …..

” WATCH WHAT YOU SAY ! ”

cos’ leaders now …
WON’T … Tolerate … !!!

Those of us …
Who … want to relate …

A … ” Different View ” …
to … Political Crews …

This is … WHY …
They … ” Control News ” … !!!

to keep … ” The Fools ” …
Falsely … schooled …
in …. PROPAGANDA …. !!!

NOT … ” The Truth ” … !!!!!

So …
Check this flow …

” Do not pass go !
cos’ Old Kent Road,
ain’t there no more ! ”

Laugh if … YOU CAN …
It’s … NOT A JOKE …
when … friends of yours …
Die from … ” Bomb Smoke ” …

A friend … told me …

“Shrapnell does, make victims bleed,
but, what kills you, is all the heat !”

Stuck in … ” A Tunnel ” …
Frying like …. MEAT …. !!! ….

Do … ” My Depictions ” …
Make you … ” Weep ” … ?

or give you … ” Heartburn ” … ?
Like …. Meryl Streep ….

Or …..
Do you believe … ?
These … ” Political Creeps ” … !!!

Who …..
Continually … ” Preach ” …
while others … ” Sleep ” …

NOT … for the night …
But …. ” ETERNITY ” …. !!!!!

MP’s … are free …
to walk … FREELY … !!!

But …
I fear for … ” Peace ” …
on …. English Streets ….

when … War is waged …
on …. ” Communities ” ….
and … ” Freedom of Speech ” …
becomes … OBSOLETE … !!! …

Then …
Men …. ” Like Me ” ….
become … ” Government Foes ‘ …
because of words …
We put in … prose …

What would you choose … ?
Coc’ … Up Your Nose …
or …. ” Political Coups ” …
and … ” Reality Shows ” …

How about … ???

” Poets EXPOSED ?!? ” …

Would I … get your vote … ?
to be …. ” Your Host ” …. ?

I … Reckon so … ?
and that’s … NO BOAST … !!!

But let’s … NOT GET …
Caught up … ” In Jokes ” …

cos’ … Government quotes …
May just …. ” Provoke ” ….

A VIOLENT END … !!!
where … ” Muslims Choke ” … !!!!!

NOT JUST … ” Them ” … !!!

That’s the … PROBLEM … !!!
when bombs are left …
around … ” London ” … !!!

This piece has got ….
Some … ” Different Flows ” …

cos’ …
Like … A Bomb …

I’m … READY TO BLOW … !!!!!

Things are … Now …
Out of … CONTROL …

So … watch out folks …

cos’ ……

…. ” Here We Go ” ….. !!!

So, years on … and there seems to be a rise … ???

in … Reaction driven groups like, Britain First ….

On the offensive, in how they are dealing with England’s apparent,

” Islamic Problem ”

Didn’t realise Cameron’s middle name was Hussein too !!!!

Anyways’, I have one question, other than the ones in the below poem from the days of 7/7 …..

Abuse of Islamic people in the UK … On the riSE …
Bomb attacks that had a GENUINE level of threat to England … Hmmm …

The stats would be interesting … ???

Thus, here are a few of the visions I had, soon after 7/7 ……

” Reaction ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 8/7/2005

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

(BTW … I am NOT, Pro-Islam)

What happened yesterday …
Left … Many Folks … AMAZED … !!!!!

to see the …
” London Underground ”

BLOWN UP … !!! …
and … Ablaze …

Ofcourse we’ve heard … REACTIONS …
from the … ” Usual ” … Political Factions …

But ….
While things were … COLLAPSING … !!!

Where were they …
” G8 ” … Protracting … ?!?

It’s … Never Them … !?!
That … Feel the … STING … !!!
but people who … ” Won’t ” …
be the same … AGAIN … !!!! …

” Some ” … Have Died …
while some … ” Survived ” …

But …..
They … ” May Wish ” … ?
They’d … Lost their life …

What we … “Hear” …
is … ” So Contrived ” …

It’s … ” Al-Qaeda ” …
ALL THE TIME … !!!!!!!!!!

Let’s not keep …

THE TRUTH … ” dIsGuisED ” …
” They have got ” … Western Allies … !!!

So …..
Where’s … ” The Proof ” … ???
to dispel … ” LIES ” …

That … will be fed …
to … ” Controlled Minds ” …

I haven’t got a clue … ?
Try … MI5 … !!! …

Aren’t they the ones … ???
Who … PROTECT LIVES … !?!

They seemed to be … ” LOST ” … !?!?!
Did they need … ” A Guide ” … ???

It’s … Cars they drive …
While some have … DIED … !!!

On … GUESS WHAT … ?

YES …… !!!!!

A Double Decker Ride …

But … ” It’s Okay ! ”
is what … ” They say ” …

“Security measures,
are now in place !”

Okay … That’s Great … !!!

But …..
The Fact … is this …

IT’S A LITTLE TOO LATE …

When … MANY NOW …
Have met … Their Fate … !!!

” Isn’t ” … PREVENTION …
Better than …. ” Cure ” … ?!?

You’d better ask Bob … ?
or try … Midge Ure … !!!!

” Live Aid ” … worked … !!!
It got a …. REACTION ….

Yeah …..

George Bush … ” Ain’t ” …
Removing … SANCTIONS … !!!

Fair Trade … is …
A Better Way …
than giving … Pop Stars …

The … ” Political Stage ” …

They just want …
Some more … AIRPLAY … !!!

Those who … ” Believe ” …
what the … Media say …
are … VEXING ME … !!! …
in … ” Different ways ” … !!!!!

People I work with …
make me … ” Laugh ” …

“Virgil, this thing,
ain’t a joke !
Someone in here
may have had,
their heart broke !”

That … May be true … ?

But …..

Here’s … MY VIEW …

People Laugh …
Every … God Damn Day … !!!
while … ” Many DIE ” …
in … ” Different Ways ” …

NOT … Naturally … !!!
They’re … ” CASUALTIES ” …
of things we all see …
in … ” Societies ” …

Come on folks … !!!
You … Must Agree … ?!?

So …..
Don’t you point …
Fingers … at me … !!!

cos’ you … Like Me …
are … ALL GUILTY …
of making jokes …
while others … BLEED … !!!

Look at those …
who had to sleep …
in …. London Hotels …

Beds …..
DIDN’T COME CHEAP … !!!!!!

These are … The Acts …
of the … GREEDY BREED … !!!

I’ll laugh … OUT LOUD … !!!!!!!!
cos’ that … Ain’t Me …

People have … ” Died ” …

Yeah … it’s a … TRAGEDY … !!!

But …..
How many … ” Care ” … ???
About … ” Those in NEED ” … !!!

In places … Here …
In This … country …
and those who …

SUFFER … Overseas … ?!?!?

How many can say … ?

” They think of them ! ”

Those … Living a life …
WITHOUT … ” Freedom ” …

It’s TRUTH … I Talk …
while you … Build Forts …
to … Save Yourself …
from … ” Conscious Thoughts ” …

and then want to … ” Act ” …
Like … ” You’re a GOOD SPORT ” … ?!?

and think about those …
with … LESS … Not More … ???

Check YOURSELF …
in the … Baggage Hall … !!!!!

This … FOR SURE …
I DO … ” IMPLORE ” … !!!!!

I … DON’T Know Everything … !!!
I … DON’T … Claim to … !!!

But nowadays …

My views are … ” Shrewd ” …

I’m searching for … TRUTH … !!!
NOT …. ” Fraudulent News ” …. !!!

” IT’S A POWER SURGE ! ”

Remember …
” Those Words ” … ???

cos’ …
Now … WE KNOW … !!!
that message was … Blurred …

YES …
with these words …

You Must … CONCUR … !!!

So …
These last words …

Go to … ” Fake Factions ” …

EVERY Action …

Provokes a …

… ” Reaction ” …
