” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

Connect The Dots … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People, well, in my world, time feels like it’s flying by !!!!

The season of … Apparent …

” GOOD WILL ” … is upon us folks …

So, for those who indulge, ENJOY !

However, for those less concerned with the whole, Christ Mas’ … Fest …

I’m gonna end this year by connecting a few dots in this poem,

However, before doing so,

Well DAMN, what a year eh folks ?!?

To be honest, so much has gone on, that I can’t recollect too much without sifting through my mind, which I am far too old and tired to do, but what I will say is that from Brexit’ to Trump, to Hollywood Abuses, Government Abuses, Sports Abuses, and basically, ABUSES coming to light from all kinds of places !!!!!

It’s actually nice to see people embrace this time to connect with others in hopefully, Warmer Ways … !!!!

I’ve made some interesting connections this year … Fa’ SURE … !!!!!

Some, that have been fruitful, and quite shocking in terms of whom I have connected with, and others that have been less fruitful, but, equally as important in terms of my personal development, and my ability to connect with the people I’d …. Like to be connected with, for the foreseeable at least.

However, disconnections have also occurred, that have shocked, disturbed and even angered me for sure !!!

Much like many of the more, Serious and i’d suggest, MORE IMPORTANT happenings, that have come to the fore in these last 12 months.

Sadly, these other matters cannot just be swept away, and amongst other global matters that seem to be disconnecting, more than, connecting people. This final piece of the year from me, touches on where we seem to be, disconnecting, instead of protecting the ideal of ….

Keeping the finite dots that we,
Human beings are, in this universe,

…….. CONNECTED ……..

Check It … and stay blessed for the festive and the next few, and stay Connected people …..

One Love.

The Virge.

” People Like You ” ….. Co-Produced by Anthony Lowhar & Big Virge

Okay folks, moving along through the Virges’ World, Debut Album …..

This month’s tune has a hard beat, and, much within it, that defines a growing number of people in this world of ours, in my opinion.

Fukholes’ ….. from leaders, to ministers, sports people to actors, and their co-horts, who seem to be, VERY FREE with themselves, when it comes to their sexual wants and desires, even if they’re not welcomed by those they want !!!

Political backstabbing, as per usual, even if, for a change, it’s down there in Zimbabwe.

Mugabes’ reign, finally comes to end, well, many a perspective has been expressed, and for a change, i’m gonna keep mine to myself for another time.

Now, as for Netflix and DC Bods, involved in superhero productions,

I think there are quite few of them in this poem, who are up in the production of some of the crap that they’re shooting, for the viewing public to endure ….

Uh Hmmm … ENJOY of course … !!!!!!

Fundamentally, the types of people referred to in this piece will sadly, always be around, and sadly, may well be in positions of influence and power, however, the bod who inspired this piece, was just a loud mouthed Jamaican, not averse to abuses of his own, who, one day drove my pen to get to express what I think about him and them, so just for him and THEM …..

If you are one of these people ……

WAKE THE FUNK UP …..
and CUT OUT Your Fukry …. !!!!!

As said, here is a beat, you can nod your head to and ENJOY !!!!!

Stay cool, and level ….. out there people ….

One.

” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

The Knight still rides ….. written & performed by Big Virge

So, as the months go on of this rather crazy 2017, it’s time to drop the final album cut, for The Dark Knight of A Different Type ….

Right about now, he’s a busy fella, trying to stop all dee furry’ going on all over this world of ours right now …. !!!!!

But ….

He at least has some hard beats to move with ….. !!!!!

On production duties, Mr. Strat Carter, and, Mr. Anthony Lowhar, alongside of my vocals ….

An old school sound for an old school type of crimefighter, and, in this case, rhyme writer …. !!!!!

Take it for a spin ….

“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..
