Corona Series Pt. XXI “How Exactly Do You Know ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 25/5/2020

Now I’m NOT Being Funny …
Because THIS THING Is UGLY … !!!

… LOSS of LIFE … !!!
As Multitudes Die … !!!

But I’ve Got To Ask …
How Exactly Do They Know … ?

People Who’ve LOST …
A Relative … Because … ???

of THIS Corona Virus …
That’s Killing In SILENCE … !!?!!

WITHOUT CLEAR Signs … !!!
As To EXACTLY WHY …
Some Folks Have DIED … ?!?

OF COURSE I Do Get …
That Heads Are UPSET …

But There Is A PROBLEM … !!!

Were These People There …
When Death Was What Flared …
In … Hospital Beds … ?!?

EVEN If They WERE … ?!?

Are They Medical Minds …
Who Could CLEARLY Define …
The REASONS WHY …
Their Loved Ones Have Died … ?!?

I Guess That These Rhymes …
Will ANGER The Minds …
of People Now SADDENED …
Because of What’s Happened … !!!

But As I’ve Said Before …

Funerals Being Held ONLINE … !?!
For Husbands Wives And EVEN YOUNG CHILD … ???

Does That Seem Right … ???

Limited Numbers …
For Deaths of Folks Mothers …
… Sisters And Brothers … !?!

When The Cause of These Deaths …
Has … NOT Been Uncovered … !?!?!

Because … Who’s Prognosis …
Has The Right Diagnosis … ???

To …..

FINALLY CLOSE THIS …
… Societal FOCUS …

On A Problem That’s Quoted …
As Being … SO POTENT …
That It’s … CLOSING OCEANS … !!!

Okay There I’m JOKING … !!!

But … Just A Lil’ Bit … !!!

Because Some Ships …
Have Quarantined KIDS …
Because of All This … !?!

Now I’m FAR FROM …
… ALL KNOWING … !!!

But Folks Are Out Quoting …
Some … STUPID THINGS … !!!

About Things They DON’T KNOW … ?!?
Because They’ve Been … TOLD … !!!

of … Losses And Woes …
By … GOVERNMENT Folks … !?!

Who … DIDN’T Stay Home …
To Help The Virus Slow … !?!

Which Provides MORE PROOF …
That Has Me … CONFUSED … ???

If The Threat Is … As BIG …
As We’ve Been MADE TO THINK … ?!?

Why Haven’t These Heads Ended Up Being Left …
Being Stuck In Bed And … FACING DEATH … ?!?

Does That Seem Correct … ???

When Your Thoughts You COLLECT … ?!?

There Are LIES Being Told …
By … Various Folds …

Who Are CLAIMING To KNOW … !!!

The BEST Way To Go …
To Now SLOW The Roll …
of … Corona Death Tolls … !?!

But I’d Rather Hear Truth …
With … CONCRETE PROOF … !!!

Before I Believe …
What I HAVEN’T Seen …
With My VERY OWN EYES …

With KNOWLEDGE In Tow …
That Then Lets Me KNOW …

The REAL Reason Behind …
WHY So MANY Have DIED … ?!?

I Say … REST IN PEACE …
To Those Who’ve Deceased … !!!
And Send CONDOLENCES …
To Those Who Now Grieve … !!!

But ALSO Now See That Certain MP’s …
And Leaders Have Been …
Spreading … FALLACIES … !!!

About THIS And THAT …
Within Their FAST Chat … !!!!

And Seem Happy To Breach …
… THEIR OWN POLICIES … !!!!

So YES Something Seems Foul …
And Does Cast Some DOUBT …
To People Like ME …

So I Make NO APOLOGY …
For This Piece of Poetry … !!!
About What We’ve Been Told …
About … Corona Death Tolls … !!!

So My Question For Folks …

RESPECTFULLY Is ….. !!!

When It Comes To The Cause …
of Those Dying … ALONE … !!!!!!!!!!

In … Hospital Zones ….
Apparently From This CORONA FOE … !!!

“How EXACTLY Do You Know ?” …

“How Serious Is It ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 24/3/2020

So The HOT Question Is THIS …
… ” How Serious Is It ” … ?!?

I Guess Most Are Thinking That This Things Unforgiving …
This Virus That’s Killing As Well As Now Chilling …
Blood Cells In Veins … ALL OVER The Place … !!!!!!!!!!!

EVEN Famous Names Have To … ISOLATE … !!!
Because of This Strain That’s Causing Heads PAIN … !!!

Shortness of Breath And Real Thoughts of Death … !!!
As Soon As Their Feeling Something Strange In …
……. Their Chest …… !!!!!!

That’s Much Worse Than Phlegm And These Government Heads …
Who Are Causing Heads Stress As Well As … PROBLEMS … !!!!
Because Things Are Tense And They’re Not Making Sense …

When They Have Been Careless …
In Comments They’ve Sent Via TV Sets And The Internet … ?!?

A Lack of Defence To Corona’s Offence …
Has Caused Arguments And Retracted Statements …

One Day It’s OKAY Then The Next … ISOLATE … ??!??

So Now Police States …
And Martial Law Days Are What Many Face …

Unless Your A Worker …
Whose Key To The Purpose …
of Making Folks Nervous … ?!?

From Internet Servers To Commuting Workers …
Who Must Now Be Thinking … How Serious Is It … ?!?

Is It Really As Bad As A Global Pandemic … !?!
Are We All Going Mad Or Is This A … New Fad … ?!?

Or Was This Thing PLANNED … ?!?I
I’ll Let You Decide That While I Use My Notepad …

In Fact My … IPhone …
To Write Down These Notes …
About This New Virus …
And Spread of This Sickness …
That’s Now Causing Silence …
And … Domestic Violence … !!!

A SERIOUS THING … !!!!!

So What Are The Facts Cos’ The Question I Have …
Now They’ve Put Back The Olympics …
Is The One That I Think Is Now On MOST Lips … !!!

” Heading ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 18/3/2020

So … Where Exactly …
Is Humanity … ” Heading ” … ?!?

Because Now It Would Seem …
To Be A … ” Global Pandemic ” … !!!!

But Hey … People Sometimes …
Can Be … Truly PATHETIC … ?!?

Governments Are Now … SELLING …
The Corona Epidemic As … Globally Spreading … !!!
But Who Is Protected Within THEIR Collectives … ???

Cos’ Now Sportsmen And Actors Have Become Contractors …
From Tom Hanks To Elba Corona Now Hampers
Their Movements Like Hamsters …
Stuck In A Wheel But What’s’ Really REAL … !?!

Cos’ It’s Clear Some Heads Feel …
That Something’s Not Right …
About This New Blight That’s Causing A FRIGHT … !!!!!

That’s RIGHT To The … “SHEOPLE’” …
The Types of People Who Are QUICK To Claim …
That They’d Rather Not Hear What Politicians Say … !!!

But Look At Them NOW Hanging On EVERY WORD …
Now Coming From Mouths On … Political Grounds …

That … HAVEN’T Been Shut … !!!
Even When THEY Have CONFIRMED INFECTIONS … ?!?

Something Seems … UP … !!!
When Todays Heads of State …
Have NOT Caught The STRAIN …
of This … Corona PAIN … !?!

Telling People To Stay …
At Home And … “ISOLATE” … ?!?

Especially Those …
Who Are Now OLD AGED … !!!

So What’s Our New Heading … ?
… East West By Nonsense … ?!?

NO Form of DEFENCE …
To The Stressing of Heads …
And … Human IGNORANCE … !!!

Like The Buying of Guns …
Instead of Vitamins By Dumb Americans … !?!

The Old Left … ALONE …
While Others Turn Cold Just To Get Toilet Roll … !!!

Stock Markets CRASHING …
As Stocks Take A Bashing Like Slaves Taking Lashings … !!!

Dashing For Hope …
Because of … Lost Souls … !!!

I Have To Say Folks …
That It’s Hard To Know …
Or Believe Leaders Quotes …
About This … Death Toll … ?!?
When They’re NOT On Show … !?!

Because Funeral Homes …
Have Become A … NO GO … !?!

For Heads Who Have Lost …
Somebody Whose Gone …

But The Question Is … WHERE … ???

I Think That It’s Fair To Now Question Who Cares … ?

Cos’ It’s Really NOT Fair To Deny Us The Right …
To Say Our Goodbyes To Loved Ones Who’ve Died …

Just To Toe Lines of Things … Politicised … !!!
That Just … DON’T Seem Right … ?!?

Like Funerals Being …
Something Streamed ONLINE … ?

Okay Okay I Hear The Sheople Say …

“Conspiracy Theories, Come On Big Virge Really ?”

Well Me I Think Clearly So NO Is My Answer …
Because Things Are … MASKED UP … !!!!!!!!!!!

Just Look Around Now …
Do You Really Believe Politicised Speech …
From Heads Who We See Tell The World FALLACIES … !!!

ESPECIALLY When … It Comes To THEIR MONEY … !?!

Doesn’t It Seem … “ Funny “ … ?!?

That …
As The Chinese Were About To Impede …
Trade Deals Overseas That For CENTURIES …
Have Been OVERSeen By Western Companies …

That They’ve … Caused A DISEASE …
That’s Now Spread … GLOBALLY … ?!?

And Let’s NOT FORGET …
That Pension Funds Are Dying …

It Seems That They’re Trying …
To Create Balance Sheets …

Built To … Financially …
DESTROY Most Older Peeps’ …

Who Can NO Longer Feed Their NEW BRAND of Slavery …
Where New Technology … SUPERSEDES Humanity … !!!

THAT’s The ONLY TRAGEDY That I … Actually See … !!!!!
Price Hikes HAVE To Be What Are Coming … TRUST Me … !!!

From Toiletries To Airline Companies … !!!!!!

Who SHOULDN’T Be The Ones To Get Government Funds … !!!
When Heads Are Losing Jobs As Well As Their Loved Ones … !!!

Something Is CLEARLY WRONG And Just Does NOT BELONG … !!!!!!
When Governments Are Spreading This Type of … INFECTION …

Where Common Sense Is LESSENED … !?!
And People Are Now STRESSING …
Because of INCREASED TENSION … !!!

About Where It Is That Humanity …………….

Is Now …

………. “ Heading “ …….. !?!

“The Corona Virus“ … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/3/2020

So …..

” Coronas All Around ! ” …

Is Now The NEW Sound … !!!
But I DON’T MEAN … BEERS … !!!

So Now Thinking Is Sinking As This Thing Starts Shifting …
It’s The Spreading of FEAR … That’s Shifting Gears … !!!!

Shifting Ears And Now It Appears …
Is Shifting Goods For SHAMELESS CROOKS … !!!

And NO They DON’T Wear HOODS … !!!

Now Everyday People Are Dealing In EVIL …
In The Name of Greed …
While People Concede To This Corona Disease …

A Grand For A Piece of Toilet Roll … PLEASE … !!!

Certain Aussies Need To Be Cuffed By Police …
And NO I DON’T MEAN … The Aborigines … !!!!!!!
The Crims’ That Were Sent By Britain’s Government …
Are Crims Fo’ REAL … Yup A Virus INDEED … !!!!!!

But Not Quite Like The Chinese It Seems …
In Just A Few Weeks They’ve Hurt Economies …
With Corona Themes That Have Hit News Feeds …

And Airlines Too …
When Cabin Crews Are In Quarantine Queues … !!!

So What’s The Next Move For Political Groups … ???
Shutting Down Countries From China To Iran To … Italy … !!!

Is This A BAD DREAM … Or A REAL NIGHTMARE … !?!
Well Now It’s Bio Warfare That Has The Masses Scared … !!!

So Now They’re Willing To Wear Their Gloves EVERYWHERE … !!!
After Washing Their Hands of CERTAIN Foreign Clans …

Taking The Stance of Those Ku Klux Klans … !!!!!

But This Time It’s Not Blacks … It’s Now The Chinese …
Who They Want To See …

DEMONISED … Like Diseased Bad Guys … !!!

But It’s Time For Clear Thinking … !!!
As I Said At The Beginning …

People Need To Ask … WHY … ?!?

Cos’ It’s Easy To See …
That World Economies Would Be Beneficiaries …
Well Actually I Mean … Western Companies … !!!!!

If … Chinese Money …
Saw A Quick Decrease In Its Power Oversees … ?!?

Something Smells Funny To People Like Me …

Well We’ve Quickly Seen Violence …
And Of Course Police Sirens …
Now Patrolling The Streets …
To Curb The Increase of This Corona Disease … !!!

That’s Killing LOTS of Peeps … !!!
From Over There In China … To The World GLOBALLY …

But It’s A Time For CLEAR THINKING …
From End To … Beginning … !!!

But For Those Who’ve Died …

I Suggest A Moments Silence …
Cos’ Now We’re Losing Lives …

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

Okay folks, so like WOW !?!

First Things FIRST …..

Condolences and thoughts go to those in the Bahamas, whose lives have been ruined by the devastation of Hurricane Dorian … !!!!!

Thankfully, brushed past Barbados, in a less heightened state, but saw the level of fear that such natural phenomena can bring, even when they don’t hit … !!!!!

Anyway ….

What On Earth is going on in this world of ours ?!?

Well, it would seem to me as though the iron fist of governance, is spreading its wings, just about everywhere !?!

Gotta start with Boris and the incredible moves he’s pulling to get the type of Brexit’ deal, that is frightening, even his own MP’s ?!?

This has immediately led to petitions, and demonstrations by people who are far from impressed with his seemingly, blatant disregard for due, Democratic Processes, to drive how this Brexit’ matter gets done and dusted ???

NOT GOOD Folks !!!

TRUST ME On That … !!!!

However, the machine keeps churning along, regardless of the issues that will clearly have, massive knock on effects, whichever way things pan out.

However, the political ranglings of the last two days, have really shown, just how manipulative politicians can be, especially when it comes to interpretations of the law, and how they can be, circumnavigated !!!

Okay, so off to Kashmir, where the unrest over this land is again, not quite as insignificant as maybe, people are thinking …..

Then we have the Hong Kong situation, which seems to be getting more and more volatile, as protests continue, and go global, volatility, that is in no small way, partly due to Anti – Protester … Protesters … ?!?

And …..

Military, as well as police actions, now including water cannons in Hong Kong !!!

Africa … ???

Well, the usual nonsensical stuff, as in, nations from the same continent, allowing colonial labels to stop them, from seeing each other as AFRICANS, First and FOREMOST … !!?!!

…. ahead of being say, Nigerians, or South Africans, which seems to be creating, continued ….

XENOPHOBIC …

I REPEAT ….

XENOPHOBIC actions, based upon an anger, being aimed at said nations people, creating businesses, in what are foreign lands, according to these nationalists, who are making these attacks !!!

In times like these …
PURE MADNESS … !!?!!

As if black people don’t face enough pressures from the world at large !

However, as per, Mr. Chappelle’s observations, in his latest stand-up, “ Sticks and Stones “, which throws some very, well aimed darts into the realm of being PC, in todays’ world, and this ever increasing confusion as to who is who, and who can say what to who, and continue to move freely … !?!

Y’all know where I’m heading, if not,
check it out for yourselves … !!!

There’s SO MUCH MORE Madness that is happening, I could go on and on, but won’t ….

Simply because, the vibe seems to be one of revolution against, the type of controls that are being applied socially, however, interestingly, from certain segments of his show, against artistry, even from an entertainers perspective, whose art is comedic, as in, not meant to be taken too seriously … ???

Hmmm …..

As I’ve been suggesting to people, for a while now, this is a dangerous time, where speaking your mind, even articulately, when speaking on sex, especially now … Or … Governance, has wide repercussions for us all, as Boris Johnson’s actions, in particular show !

We now have leadership, and movements, who only seem concerned about THEIR OWN Agendas, and because of their power, seem to think that they can dictate everything, from, politically fractious actions, to what you express artistically, especially when it comes to the LGBT …

However, I’ll leave you with one of Mr. Chappelles’ gems….

Why is it so problematic to say …

… “ Faggot “ …

As he was told long ago, whilst doing the Chappelle Show.

However, it’s not such an issue,
when it comes to saying … “ Nigga’ “ …

THOUSANDS of times … !!!
…. when you really check it, to make people laugh …. !?!

It’s a question that the LGBT populous, who we now know, are the main architects of much that is seen as … “ Entertainment “ …

Well …..

In my opinion, art, like expression, should be FREE …..

Even if it offends, because you know what … ?!?

NOBODY’s PERFECT …

And You …

CAN’T LIKE EVERYTHING … !!!
and, Neither SHOULD YOU … !!!

So, on that note, as people across the globe, continue to revolt, over different issues ……

My question this week is …..

And… For The Readers, “Thought” … A Poem written by Big Virge 18/5/2017

I Believe That Thought …
Should Be Used For MORE … !!!

Than Being …
USED To ENFORCE FOOLISH Acts of War ….

I Import MORE Thoughts Than SEAS Do Shores … !!!!!!!!!

Because Thoughts I’ve Explored …
Have Ensured I’ve Walked
A Path That ABORTS Being Drawn To Pitfalls … !!!!!

So OF COURSE I Walk TALL And REJECT Being Caught …
Like The Saying Says … SHORT …

I’d Rather Go LONG Where Thinking BELONGS …
In A World Where KONG IS The One Who Lives Long … !!!

Because He Outthinks IGNORANCE That Links …

Thought Waves To …….. “shrink” …….. ?

Instead of Thinking …….. BIG ……… !!!

Like …
IGNORANT Racists Who Choose To RESIST …
Thoughts That Enlist Embracing Things …
Like … Different Skins … !!!!

When What Lies WITHIN …
Should … SUPERSEDE This … !!!!!

Such Thinking Links …
Itself To … TERRORISTS … !!!

As Do GOVERNMENTS …
Whose Thoughts Defend …

DIVISIVE Trends Time and AGAIN … !!!!!
When Will Such Thoughts Come To An END … ???

So Much PRETENCE And LIES That Lend …
Themselves To LIARS That Then Cause … FIRES … !!!!

Where Towers BURN DOWN In London Town … !!!
And The US … TOO … !!!
Where Thoughts Get Confused … ????
So Then Cause … ABUSE … !!!

Where Thought Is LOST To MORE Than Bombs … !!!!
Gunshots From Cops NOT SEEN As … Wrong … ?!!!?

Or ……..
A Form of ERROR That DO Cause TERROR … !!!!!
Take A Sec and THINK …………………………..

Aren’t These Things Linked … ???
Most Would Say NOT …
Cos’ Their Thoughts Are LOCKED … !!!

WITHOUT Sherlock To Unravel P LO T S …. !!!!!!
That As I’ve Said DESTROY TOWER BLOCKS … !!!

And Peoples Lives … Does That Seem Right … ?
Thought Waves That Ride To INCREASE The PRICE …
of Land That’s Now PRIZED By The Gentrified … ?!?

DON’T Even TRY To Say That I ….
Am The … “ Type of Guy “ …
Whose Thoughts … TERRORISE … !?!?!

I Think You’ll Find …
That I Just Write Rhymes That RECOGNISE …
That Thinking DIES When The Media LIES …

About Loss of Life …
And The Reasons WHY Smoke FILLS UP Skies … ?!?

While Firefighters FIGHT …
But In The End …. CRY …. !!!!!!!

Because They Couldn’t Save Children Who DIED … !!!
Long Before THEY Got To LIVE Their Lives … !!!
Like Government Guys Whose Thoughts … DENY ….

Doing … What’s RIGHT … !!!!!

The UK Should Be ASHAMED That Names Like … “ May “ …
Are Those Whose Thoughts Nowadays … DICTATE … !!!!!

As I Said BEFORE ENOUGH With Their TALK …
That KEEPS Building Forts …
To Fight Terrorist Wars On Foreign Shores …

When They Should Think MORE About Making SURE … !!!

That Things In Zones That They Call … ” HOME ” …
Are SAFE And SOUND And … DON’T Burn Down … !!!!!

They Need To Export LESS IGNORANT Talk … !!!
That KEEPS Fuelling WARS And Should Maybe Import … ???
Thinking That ENSURES BETTER Lives For US ALL …. !!!!
But That Can Only Come …

From …

HIGHER LEVELS … of …

“Mad Talent” … Prod by Anthony Lowhar

Yes Yes People …..

Keeping it moving with another track from Virges World Vol. 2.

This one is my take on the abundance of CRAP that has infiltrated the creative realm of music, and more importantly, the lyricism that makes Great Music …. GREATER, by saying things that have something more to offer people, than the nonsensical mumblers and others, who seem quite happy to desecrate artistry, for a quick fix of money, pussy, or notoriety.

Of course things move on, but as I have heard a couple of well known musicians, recently tell politicians, if, from a societal perspective, we seem to be regressing, I wonder how much of this is due to the music that is now being fed to young people …..

An interesting question which this tune addresses in no small way.

Thanks to Anthony L… on production …..

This piece here, is INDEED FILLED with …

… ” Mad Talent ” … !!!!!!

” Balance ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Folks, so what’s been occurring, or should that be RECURRING !?!

Brexit’ … !!!!!

Trump Administration resignations, and of course, allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards women and children, from charities like Oxfam, to the likes of Bill Cosby, who the system, amongst a plethora of others, have finally collared, for his indiscretions against at least one of his many accusers.

The other news that seems to be a recurrent thing of recent times, is the volume of natural phenomena, wreaking havoc across the globe !

There has been loss of life in quite a few places, as a result of Typhoons, Hurricanes and flooding, here, there and pretty much everywhere, from here in Barbados, where the south coast, recently took a pounding, to mudslides in Uganda, that have taken at least 40 lives !

Then, we of course have the Florida situation, where Hurricane Michael did it’s thing, ripping through Mexico beach, and Panama City, leaving at least 30 dead, and a considerable amount still unaccounted for !

Indonesia too, taking a literal pounding from a Tsunami and Earthquake that has sadly taken the lives of many children, and hundreds of people. Mass burials and a recovery that is proving to be very difficult, due to poor levels of communication availability, and issues with aid getting to those it needs to reach, very sad and difficult times for the people of Indonesia !

Hurricane Leslie has managed to cause flooding in Portugal, and Spain, and even Wales has been flooded, due to Storm Callum !

It’s crazy to see so much imbalance in the world, nature is one thing, but when people are being accused, left right and centre, of everything from harassment to rape …

Without CLEAR Proof …

One has to wonder where the balance is, in this world now.

It’s a crazy time, but hey, if you’re not falling victim to any of these things, you’re okay right, well, i’d rather see less of these issues, and more balance in peoples assessment of things, especially, all this apparent misogyny, and abuse of the ladies.

I mean, now Cristiano Renaldo is being accused too, I guess the #MeToo Movement may have an alternate strain soon, where men are saying, well damnit, I’ve been accused too !!!!!

Whatever happened to Kevin Spacey eh ???

Isn’t Jail somewhere that he should face, instead of being supported by the likes of Dame Judi Dench ?!?

… and how has Brett Kavanaugh managed to get to be on the Supreme Court in the US, even with the same type of accusations as Bill and numerous others uh … ?!?

The scales don’t seem to be so balanced when it comes to President Trump and his cronies eh … ???

The President can get away with calling poor ol’ Stormy D, ” Horseface ” … having won the lawsuit she filed against him for defamation ???

She may have to balance herself on her back, just a bit more, to pay the Presidents legal expenses !!!

My point being, that it truly seems to be a world that is finding more ways to imbalance itself, than to find some balance that enables us to all be clear on what’s okay or not, when it comes to the realms of what we say, and, how we say things to each other.

Truly CRAZY, so I think this month, i’ll share some views on Balance, or the lack thereof, in people these days …..

So, my last words for this post are simply these …

STAY BALANCED Folks …. before you sink your boat !!!

“Sick” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Peoples’ ….

So what’s cracking’ …

Well, Serena’s cool, at the recent US Open Final, and what a furore this has created, as well as some rather offensive artistic offerings, in Australia !!!

Surprised, NO …

Sickened, well a little, these days it takes a lot to actually sicken me.

I recently saw Sicario 2, and without spoiling it for those yet to see it, expect some visual sickness, reflective of the issues surrounding control, and movements around the Mexico / US Border.

So much stuff going on that could sicken stomachs, that it’s amazing to see that people just carry on, without too much thought about the sick things that are happening in this world of ours.

So, rather than select a thousand instances, the last couple of things i’ll touch on are the story of a 12 year old who went into his school in Iowa, intent on shooting a teacher, IN THE FACE, no less !!! Only to find that the gun’s safety was still on !!!!!

THAT …. in Iowa …. !!!!

…. while, in the UK, Celebrity Big Brother House, a Certain, Roxanne Pallett, pulled some, sick idea of an attempt to define male harassment, when basically, fully embellishing what was a simple moment of well, ” Playfulness “, from one of her male housemates, only for it to blow up in her face, because in this instance, everything was captured for the world to see.

#MeToo eh girls … ???

Well, as Ms. Pallett has found out, you better be telling THE TRUTH about Male Abuse !

NOT ….

Your Version of events, as this incident has shown all of us who have seen the recent flood of accusations of male abuse, unsurprisingly, come from the whole Hollywood fraternity, from essentially nowhere, to not necessarily jump to every accusers defence, quite as speedily as many have been doing !!!

My point being, that with such a SERIOUS Thing as physical abuses of women being essentially ABUSED, by this lil’ … ” Actress ” … just goes to show that the sickness of abuse isn’t as straightforward as that of the abuser, immediately being labelled as being a nasty piece of work !

Sometimes, those claiming these, same abuses, are even worse, because lying about something that affects so many women, who consistently say that it’s an INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT thing to bring to peoples attention, is indeed pretty sick in my opinion !!!

As said, the world is filled with much worse things, but essentially, we live in a pretty sick period of human existence !!!

and sometimes, just sometimes, that sickness comes out in artists vision of the world that we live in …

So, with no further ado, written a while ago, and i’m not sure whether I feel any better or worse about the state of things, but, know that these words will always sicken, because they will always reflect some part of the world we live in.

” Cooler ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So guys what a hot few weeks it’s been eh ?

Wildfires, heatwaves, the world cup, and a variety of hot topics continually arising, that should be causing, at least the odd raised eyebrow, in terms of what is being revealed, or NOT, as the case may be.

So, this month’s little ditty will cover a few things, from last years Grenfell Fire, and the reaction to it, to the continual revelations of Hollywood abuses, and the reactions to them, that continue to heat up, as more and more female stars release information that will have a lot of producers and big movers, loosening their collars, due to the heat of allegations surfacing, and, resurfacing, from the past. Kathleen Turner being the latest to have certain people, looking over their shoulders, right about now.

As per usual, the Donald Trump show continues to simmer, until he gets his nose out of joint, over say, Lebron James, or NFL Players continuing to kneel, or, refusing to stand for the American Anthem before games. The issues of trade, and of course, his rather high profile meetings of recent, which should apparently, be cooling down tempers and the need for nuclear arms.

The Catholic Church, seemingly, abusing children just about everywhere they’ve been, with quite the level of protection, from members of their church to police not taking matters seriously, upon notification of child abuses, that have also been kept under the radar at some schools for decades, coming to light.

It’s definitely been a hot summer, but, not just due to the weather.

Even Tiger Woods has found his golf clubs hotting up, as he gets very close to returning to the major winners circle, at the PGA in St Louis.

The Zimbabwe election situation has caused tempers to hot up due to disputes over the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwas’ election win. South African land appropriation, and a number of other issues in the African Continent.

The Ben Stokes case is hotting up, as did his temper clearly, as the story seems to keep changing regarding his position in the argument that led to him, as he claims, protecting a couple of gay guys from facing abuse …..

Hmmmm, something doesn’t quite add up about that whole scenario, much like the issue of race, as another white nationalist rally is heading to Washington, whilst racist graffiti has been sprayed on a house in Rochdale, where a black family were excited about moving in, so, that debate is still hot for those who aren’t part of the fraternity of famous black folks, who are now not so keen to raise the issue because of the green in their pockets, that has them feeling comfortable.

Well, as this poem suggests, we all could do with a cooling down, or maybe an exhibition of more coolness, when some of these issues confront us.

It’s been a hot summer for sure, but, unlike rain, some of these other hot issues may require some other cures.

Anyway, take a listen and enjoy, and stay cool folks !!!

Bless Up

Virge
