“We Can’t All Be” … Written and Performed By Big Virge

So, as these strange times continue to roll on, we have a number of people speaking on, a rather large variety of things now !

The Corona situation seems to be breeding talk that is seemingly, actionable one day, regarding travel, and the nations that are safe to visit, or, receive visitors from….

…. to the very next day, being the VERY SAME Places, that are then spoken of as being, “ HOTSPOTS “, to the point where people have found that their, overly eager reactions, to being able to travel, due to such talk, may have been a little premature !

It seems as though there are still plenty of people, with money to waste, just to apparently, get away ….

From WHAT, I’m really not sure ?

… when the virus is far from seemingly, being controlled ?!?

So, some holiday makers have been stranded to the point where, delayed returns, and reinforced quarantine measures, will now infringe upon their work and life commitments !

There have been, just INSANE, knee jerk reactions, from clearly, stir crazy folks, due to lockdowns and the subsequent talk, from leaders who are clearly misleading people, with their, ridiculous, Corona rhetoric ?!?

Across the waters in America, we have the obvious debates, about statues etcetera, raging, and constantly being a subject of current conversations and debates, surrounding race !

Well, the race debate is reaching countries all over the place now, and it’s not going down so well with certain heads in the US, especially when it comes to kneeling, or standing, during anthem ceremonies !

Individuals such as New Orleans Saints, Quarter Back, Drew Brees, to the likes of ex, Chicago Bears Head Coach, Mike Ditka, have made it clear, that those who take issue with standing for the anthem, should not only be ashamed, but as per, Mike Ditka in particular, should feel free to leave America and not return, if they have such a big problem with it !

Drew Brees, on the other hand, is now making, apology after apology, for what has earned him a heavy, social media, public backlash, for his initial stance.

So, it’s a strange time, when it comes to basic, freedoms of speech, when social media accounts are being banned for inflammatory or misleading comments on race, gender or the Corona Virus, including Tweets from President Trump ?!?

Well, if people can’t read between the lines here, then soon, reading is ALL they’ll be doing, because to me, these restrictions are being imposed to stop, average folk from speaking out against injustices, beyond those being highlighted currently !

You only have to ask those in Hong Kong, who are now being treated as if they’re hardened criminals, for merely protesting against, what is essentially, a Chinese War being waged, on Political Criticisms and Free Speech !

FREE SPEECH People !!!

DO NOT Underestimate, the way that things are heading, we’ve already been subject to an enforced, global lockdown, so it only seems reasonable, that after all these protests, that, speech freedoms will be next thing to face, such restrictions and controls … ?!?

As an expressive writer, I have a SERIOUS PROBLEM with what I hope to be wrong about, but doubt that I am !

Thus, I can’t speak on this subject, without again, mentioning the issue that JK Rowling has got caught up in, regarding Transgender People, which is now a hot debate for women’s sport too, as well as politicians, like, Labour MP, Rosie Duffield, whose stance and tweets, on the issue of treatment for … individuals with Cervical Cancer, seems to have upset Transgender people, for well, whatever reason, but, what’s interesting is that, she caught the backlash, seemingly, after she liked a tweet by PIERS MORGAN, no less, who suggested that this was a question for … WOMEN !!!

The SAME Piers Morgan, who literally, publicly vilified a man for not wanting to see, gay men dancing together on Strictly Come Dancing, because of the issues it would cause for families watching it together ….

So, the confusion continues…. regarding this, rather hot topic, of Gender Agendas, and opinions that don’t sit so well with the LGBT community, especially when made by public figures ?!?

We also have the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, suggesting that players are being treated like, ” Lab Rats “, for this years World Snooker Championships, which has drawn criticism from other players, let alone organisers.

Finally, once again, the incredibly touchy subject of Jewish People, and how, NO ONE, from the likes of Ex, Labour Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to the likes of Grime Artist, Wiley, can seemingly say, ANYTHING, remotely offensive about them, without facing public condemnation, and loss of an abundance of things, from leadership, in Corbin’s case, to management support in Wileys’.

I have to say, considering that it would seem that Wiley has worked with, and for, Jewish people who have funded, sponsored and promoted him, as well as sat in discussions with him, about their history and attitudes, that his Twitter outburst, was not necessarily the smartest move he’s ever made, even if, as he claims, he’s not frightened of what they can, or will, now try to do to him and his career !

I guess he’s made enough money now, however, his immediate dropping by his management company, may prove to be an interesting factor in how his future endeavours go !

I was told on a walk by the beach in Barbados a while ago, that NO ARTIST, especially if they’re black, gains success without Jewish support.

Wiley must be different, because he seems to now, care less about them,

Hmm, Interesting ……

Especially as Alan Sugar, for whom this has not been the first time, has again, made rather stereotypically, ignorant comments about a suit that, of all people, Ian Wright was wearing while being a guest pundit, on television this week, which could be deemed as being racist ? However, whether they could or couldn’t be, he doesn’t seem to have been treated with anything like the same disgust as Wiley received ….

Black Lives Matter … ?!?
Double Standards … ???

… because his comments were meant in, ” JEST “, ….

Huh, well we all know how the saying goes,
about things said in apparent … ” Jest ” …

So what stirred Wileys’ outburst, that never came, while he was on his way up, no dig, just wondering… ???

… because, as Professor Griff can attest, such outbursts tend to have blacks facing, BIG problems for making comments that could be, EVEN SLIGHTLY Construed as being, Anti Semitic !!!

So, this weeks piece speaks on the very CLEAR BIAS and INEQUALITY, that applies to black mouths, be they from the NAACP, to the music industry, because movements like, Black Lives Matter, don’t seem quite so keen to highlight, and speak on just how much oppression, black people have received, as a result of Jewish influence in these, same, corridors of power, that apparently have created a culture of systemic racism, that warrant the protests now in view !

It’s a pot that’s always stewed, well hidden away from view, in my opinion, but it just goes to prove, that whether it be, in public forums, or in the realm of artistry …..

…. that there is a VERY REAL, and DISTURBING TRUTH …

…. which is that, when it comes to speech, especially from,

Black Creative People ….
Our being able to speak in ways that are TRULY FREE …

Is something that ….

WE CAN’T ALL BE …..

“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 …..

” 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 …… ???

Immigrants THIS & Immigrants THAT … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/5/2006, on the UKIP Tip …. !!!

Having seen and heard UKIP, This & That … on my trip …

It only seems right to re-post a poem written in 2006, that just goes to show, that, just because it’s not in ya face anymore, hatred, prejudice & ignorance has not just disappeared, in fact, as per recent news in England, it would seem to not only have never gone anywhere, but, it retains origins from the not so distant past …..

If … ” Immigrants ” … are TRULY …
Englands’ problem, well, their immigration policies, are an absolute farce !!!!!

“Immigrants This & Immigrants That !!!” … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/5/2006

I suppose they’re designed …
by … ” IMMIGRANT MINDS ” … !?!

Take a minute …………….

We’re deemed to be …
A … ” Waste of Space ” … ?!?

and like the … ” INSANE ”
Should ……..
Join the …. ” CRIMINALS ” ….
and be …. ” LOCKED AWAY !!! ” ….

Okay ….. ” That’s Cool “….. !!!

“Ahhhh but that’s okay !

Well …
I Have to say …..
They’ve got a … ” CHEEK ” … !!!!!

to sit and complain …
when … The Home Office seems …
to have made … ” Mistakes ” …
with immigrants they …
SHOULD OF … “Locked Away” … !!!?!!!

And … what about those …. ??? …

South Africans, Aussies …..
and … Americans … PLEASE … !!!!!

Let me take a guess … ???
They’re ALL … ” Crime Free ” …

Can someone … PLEASE … ???

in ….. ” Afrikaaner’ Bars ” …..
and … ” The Aussies ” … Don’t seem …

“Outspoken” … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/11/2005

Wow, people are happy to run theirs, but, when you run yours, all of a sudden, you’re out of line and have … GONE TOO FAR …. ?!?

Well, just for them … !!!!!

Folks ….
People … ” Aren’t Joking ” … !!!
when they say i’m ……

….. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!

Sometimes …
I say things …
that leave people …
… ” Broken ” … !!!!!!!!

Some people have … ” cried ”
because of the way …
I speak about … ” Life ”

“Suffering” … “Pain” … and …
Dealing with …. ” Strife ” …. !!!

But ….
Things that I say …
are … ” Simple Reflections ” …
on things … in my sight …

Sometimes they are … ” WRONG ” … !!!
Sometimes they are …. ” RIGHT ” …. !!!!!

But ….
Speaking my mind
should not be a … ” Crime ” … !!!!!

My words are … ” Designed ”
to … ” Simply ” … ” Invite ” …
A place within … ” Darkness ” …
where … ” CLARITY SHINES ” … !!!!!
and … LIGHT … is … DEFINED … !!!!!

Words I now … write …
are simply … Inclined …
to … ” Lyrically Dine ” …
recline and be … ” Primed ”

to do … what is … ” WISE ”
and pay … ” CLOSE ATTENTION ” … !!!
to …. ” REALITY’S ” … Signs … !!!

On … How To Live …
A … ” POSITIVE LIFE ” … !!!!!

I’d rather … DO THAT … !!!
than live life to … Fight … ?!?

I’m NOT … in a rush …
to lay down and … DIE … !!!!!

Since I was a kid …
I’ve always been quick …
to air … My Opinions …
and speak about … things …

I LOVE TO … Enlist … !!!
The use of … ” EXPRESSION ”
It’s … CLEARLY … A Gift … !!!
and now an … ” OBSESSION ” … !!!!!

Poems … KEEP COMING … !!!
just like a … ” PROCESSION ” … !!!!!

But some … Do Not Like … !!!
The words I … ” Recite ” … !!!
and don’t like the sight …
of … My Lips … by a mic … !!!!!

But Hey …
That’s Okay … !!!

They … REALLY … Miss Out …
at the … End of the day … !!! …

My Wordplay … has …
….. ” SUBSTANCE ” …..

“EVEN” ……
when I … RAGE … !!!!!

But … NEVER … indulges …
in … ” Inciting ” … HATE … !!!!!!

But ….
CLEARLY … reflects …
My Mood … when … IRATE … !!!!!

But …..
My Moods …
Like … The Weather …
Show … CHANGE …
… ” Everyday ” … !!!!!

I can’t be the same
and always be … ” TAME ”

Those who want that …
Like … ” Controlling Brains ” … !!!!!

and clearly … are people …
who … NEED TO … REFRAIN … !!!!!!!
from trying to …. ” LIMIT ” ….
what people …. ” Should Say ” …. !!!

We Need to be … ” Mindful ” …
of those who … Relay …
A message that … ” Glorifies ”
….. ” Deviant ” …. ways …. !!!!!!

Those who … ” Spread Hate ”
and … ” Murderous Traits ”

SHOULD BE … !!!
LOCKED AWAY … !!!!!

But …
That’s just … “My View” …
at the …. end of the day …. !!!

Freedom of Speech …
is … ” BEAUTY ” … to me … !!!

NOT … Trying to Teach … !!!
or … Trying to Preach … !!!

We … ALL … have a mouth
I’d rather use … ” SPEECH ” … !!!
than … ” Physical Clouts ” …
“That” … Knock People … Down … !!!!!

“Brainpower” …. FEEDS ….
Off … wordplay that … ” Speaks ”
to … ” Souls Within People ” …
who choose … NOT TO SEE … !!!!!

A world where we … STOP …
Our … ” Freedom of Speech ” …

“Music” … is … SO GREAT …
when … ” Wordplay ” … Relates …
A Feeling … that … ” TOUCHES ” …
and … ” Sensually ” … Clutches …
” Something ” …. ” Deep Inside ” … !!!
And … ” Helps Pain ” … subside … !!!!!

This is …. One Reason ….
I Now … LOVE TO WRITE … !!!!!

because my … ” Expression ”
HELPS … ” Channel Aggression ”
and helps me to … ” STRENGTHEN ”
My use of …. ” Expression ” ….

My … ” OUTSPOKEN ” … Nature
Has … brought me …
My … ” Troubles ” … !!!!!

But …
Has been …. ” My Saviour ” …. !!!
and keeps me from … ” FORCES ”
” DARKER ” … than … Vader’s … !!!
GREEN … is the colour …
of YES … ” My Light Sabre ” … !!!!!

GREEN … as in … ” Country ”
where … Animals Roam …
“Expressing” … themselves …
in …. ” EVERY ” …. Zone ….

We sit and … Watch Them …
when they use … ” Expression ”
and … CANNOT DEFEND …

” The Vision ” … of them …
Behind … A Zoo Fence … !!!

Don’t get it … ” Confused ”
I’m simply … Suggesting …
That … Airing Our Views …
is … ” SURELY ” … A Thing …
We should … NOT REFUSE … !!!

“EVEN” … when people …
say things … That Abuse … !!!

because you then … KNOW …
if you …. Can Be … COOL …

and … Even if … NOT …
may help you to … Choose …

A … ” Positive Way ” …
to … RESOLVE … Your Issues … !!!

“Being” … OUTSPOKEN …
is NOT … Always Good … !!!!!

But ….
Does … Help a person …
to … give you … ” Some Clues ”
on what … Fuels … Their Mood …
and … May … Give you … PROOF …
of what … They’re Into …

I Now … Prefer … THAT … !!!
than being with … ” Those ” …
who simply …. ” Sit Back ” …. !!!
and wait for the ….. Chance …..
to make … an … ” ATTACK ” … !!!!!

What is it … THEY LACK … ?
That … Makes them … DO THAT … ?!?

Some folks are … like this …
and that’s just a … FACT … !!!!!

These are the … people …

Whose words i’m now …
….. ” Quoting ” …..

and NO …
I’m NOT … JOKING … !!!!!

These are the people ….
who say …. ” Virgil’s ” ….

…. ” OUTSPOKEN ” …. !!!!!!!!
