“Be Careful What You Do !” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Well folks, I obviously can’t drop a post this week, without at least briefly mentioning the virus of all viruses !!!

So, no coronas all round any more !?!

Well, at least for a change, black folks are not the main victims of things that clearly work against the interests of the people ….

So far at least … !!!

Anyway, enough about that, as there’ll be plenty said about it over the net few weeks and months, it seems ……

So, moving on to the stuff that the powers that be, would clearly prefer us not to focus on, as once again, news of past abuses finally comes to light for the public to see !!!

Paedophile cover ups for ministers in Westminster, by the police, that date back to the years of Margaret Thatcher, David Steele and the likes of Cyril Smith. Names from the past, who it seems, had knowledge of allegations of abuses by their colleagues, that they chose to ignore !!!

So, it seems that these abusers, didn’t have to be careful, when it came to their actions and subsequent manoeuvres, that were kept suitably hidden, until now !!!

Incredible, but not even shocking anymore, when it comes to the incredible double standards that apply to political heads, royalty and the rich and famous, who like Weinstein, only seem to face prison, when they’re basically, ready for the grave anyway ?!?

So, it’s becoming very clear that they do not seem to have to be, quite as careful as the rest of us, when it comes to their shady movements !

However, the lockdown appears to be happening in various places now, and NO, I don’t mean the Corona Virus Type of lockdown !

I mean the type that now has university staff at UCL in London, being told that relationships with students is not to happen anymore.

Especially it seems, as a Cambridge Professor, who has conveniently stepped down from his position, has been found to have, again, seemingly covered up for a colleague, accused of inappropriate sexual advances to students !

So, this all sounds great, but shouldn’t this have been in place in SCHOOLS FIRST, because most university students are of an age, where sexual activity isn’t as big of a problem, as it has proven to be within the teaching profession, with minors in SCHOOLS !!!

Further news has now affirmed that facial recognition technology is in full effect in London, even if Londoners only received 2 hours notice of it coming into effect !!!

A NYC city fashion show has found themselves in hot water for making models wear, what some have suggested to be racially offensive accessories, I mean really, in 2020 … WTF … ?!?

Talking of WTF type actions, hows about the Tanzanian Government official, who has threatened that people will face arrest for posting videos that show the poor state of the country !?!

I mean, how much of this type of nonsense will modern governments be allowed to now get away with ….

It seems that it’s only those of us who are below certain levels of society, who will have to be careful what we do, while the elite hierarchies and or, illuminati, for want of a better word, do not ?

Yet another set of these double standards that are becoming more and more prevalent in modern society !!!

However, this weeks piece looks at the continual dangers that black people face in a time where the right is on the rise, and, as per the police paedophile cover up story, one has to wonder about how policing of black people in particular, is likely to go, with the Trump & Johnson show, about to go on the road, as it were !!!

However, it would seem that quite a few young artists from Stormzy to Dave, are not afraid to suggest that Boris, like his party, is blatantly racist !!!

Well, it’s clear that as I recently suggested, that those of us below the upper echelons of society, not only now, need to …

” Be Careful What We Say ….

But that, as we move into the age of the Corona Virus Problem, Johnson Politics in the UK, and a possible second term in office for The Trumpster, that most of us, but especially, young black males, and sadly, as was the case at a Florida school last year, six year old black girls, now need to also ….

” 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 ” ….
