“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 …..

Lest we forget …. “Open Season” … written by Big Virge 9/4/2015

Well ……..
It seems it’s … OPEN SEASON …

for … MURDEROUS … Policing … !?!

NO MORE …
will blacks take … Beatings … !!!

Police will leave us … Bleeding … !!!
while they … KEEP ON … receiving …
PROTECTION … for yes … leaving …

Blacks with …

NO PULSE or … FEELING … !!!
In Fact … NO LONGER … Breathing.

and then …..
comes … ” Court Proceedings ” …
that leave black people … ” SEETHING ” … !!!!!!

Well fine it’s … OPEN SEASON …
for poetry … now … Seeking …………………………………………………….

Some TRUTH …
and less … Deceiving … !!!

See ….
I’m Incredibly … not shocked …
at how … poor … ” Walter Scott ” …

got shot by …
some … white cop …

when Walter … tried to run …
from this … Policeman … SCUM … !!!!!

But ……
before I … move along …

He may well have done wrong … ?!?
but … ” Officer Slager ” …
Let Off … EIGHT SHOTS …
in … Walters’ BACK … !?!!!? …

Let me just …. ” back track ” …..

He shot … ” EIGHT TIMES ” …
Taking … ” HIS LIFE ” … !!!!! …

Because ………….
said … SLAGER …

” He feared for his safety
because Mr. Scott, tried to
grab his Taser ! ”

So …
That means … WHAT … ?!?

He … Deserved to be shot …
EIGHT TIMES … in his … BACK … !?!!!?!

Maaaaannnnn ….

ENOUGH … of this CRAP … !!!!!

What kind of Policing … ?!?
gives Policeman teachings …
of … SHOOT TO DEATH … !!!!

Rather than … ” A Leg ” …

Shoot … BOTH …
… if ya like … !!!!!

But …..
ENOUGH … of these vibes …
where Black People … DIE … !!!!!!

Husbands and Wives …
whose Fam’ … are told … LIES … !!!!!
about … Cop … HOMICIDES … !!!!!!

So let me …

Season and OPEN ………………………………….
how people are …. Bro Ken …
and Blacks are just … ” Tokens “…
for them to be … ” Quoting ” …
all kinds of … DUMB THINGS … !!!!!!

About …

… Po’ Po’ …
… Shootings ….

An … Asian dude …
who went to … my school
posted … one day …

on my …
Facebook Page …

“Blacks need to be wise
when police are in sight,
and not antagonise,
cos that’s how they’ll die !”

Yeah THIS … Indian Guy …
felt he had … The Right …
to tell me … ” Why ” …
Police TAKE … Black Lives … ?!!!?

cos’ we ….

” DON’T ACT RIGHT !!! ”

Well YEAH … sometimes ….
but being … SHOT TO DEATH …
goes BEYOND …. NONSENSE … !!!!!

but ……
Asians like … HIM …
Prove that being … “submissive” …
is how … Most Choose … to live …
and how … Most Seem … to think … !?!

How many … Asian girls …
and I … DON’T MEAN … Orientals … !!!

have been … ” Experimental ” … ???

when it comes to … Black Men …
being in their worlds …
as the … FATHERS OF …

….. Their Children ….. ?!?

It’s CLEAR ….
from their … ” Caste System ” …
that … Inter-Racial Teams …
are …. Rarely EVER … seen … !!!

Unless their partner’s …
….. ” White ” ….. ?!?

Most Asians ….
Don’t Trust … blacks …
and that is simply … FACT …

In Fact …
Some do believe …
that blacks are just … MONKEYS … ??!??

Check through their … “History ” …
Such words … AREN’T FALLACY … !!!!!!!!!!

When we now … ” Greet Police ” …

Should blacks … IMMEDIATELY … ?
get down upon our knees …

and BEG … like …

… ” Slavery Scenes ” …

“Please Massa’, don’t shoot me !”

which leads me to …
… These Blacks …

Whose uniform’s now …
…. ” Packed ” ….

to join these …
… Police Klans … !!!!!!!

What have they … ” Changed ” …
in … Policing ways … ?!!!? …

” Not A Lot ” … !!!!!! …

Ask … ” Walter Scott ” … ???

Well sadly now …

You … CAN’T DO THAT … !!!!!!

because what is … FOUL …
is … THIS HERE FACT … !!!!!

while Walter died
and lied … FACE FLAT …

A cop who was … BLACK … !!!
seemed to search Mr. Scott …
as if … He’d … STILL ATTACK … ?!!!?

and then …
let this … white cop ..
treat him … LIKE HIS DOG …. !???!

I’m …
SICK … of the … CRAP … !!!!!!
now coming from … Blacks … !!!!!!!

Will they wanna … Shoot ME … ?!?
for this … REAL POETRY … !?!

See it’s been …

….. OPEN SEASON …..
for … QUITE SOME TIME … !!!!! …

cos’ ….
Black folks be … ” submissive ” …
as if they’ll face … ” A Lynching ” … !!!

for .. BREATHING …
and NOT … ” Flinch-ing ” … !!!!!

when … Po Po lights …
Start …. Blinking …. !!!!!!!

which right now …
gets me thinking …

that … ” William Lynch ” …
is looking down and saying …

“Look at these Black Clowns !”

Folks ….
This here … AIN’T …

” 12 Years A Slave ” …

This shooing happened …
…. ” YESTERDAY ” …. !!!!!!!!

In ….
South Carolina ….

” 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 ……
