Changes … of scenery, and much much more … written by Big Virge 22/5/2016

Yes Yes folks,

Wow, are these posts becoming more and more infrequent !!!

Well, all for good reason, the system makers and the people who, blindly fall in line, are having quite the time currently !

Trump makes it to become the Republican Nominee for the US Presidency, seemingly now, with the backing of a CERTAIN, David Cameron ….. Any surprises there ???

Well, maybe just a slight one, as his new London Mayor, is none other than Muslim, Sadiq Khan !!!!!

Well, David’s announcement of, let’s say, a level of support for Donald, should make for some, interesting confrontations, with the new London Mayor, who, if i’m not mistaken, should be deemed as quite the security threat, according to all the Islamophobia talkers, thus I guess, the Brexit Klans, sorry, Clans … !!!!!

So, are you one of them ?

Well, good luck with having a Muslim Mayor, this should all make for very interesting times, unless of course, he is a turncoat, which should have Isis, Isil & their buddies plotting some kind of let’s say, disturbance, due to his appointment.

NOT … that i’m suggesting they should do any such thing of course !!!!

I’m just speculating a lil’ bit, if we are to believe the medias’ representation of the Islamic Threat, to peoples safety, across the globe, but especially, in Europe and the US of A right ???

Something doesn’t quite seem to be adding up, but these days, i’m realising, it’s just me !

We’ve recently had some sad losses, well, losses, depending on your point of view. I didn’t get the chance to meet Tony Cozier, the cricket commentator and voice of much that has related to, Radio or TV Commentary, on West Indies cricket, for basically all of my 40 odd years, and then some !!!!!

The one thing I wasn’t aware of, was that he had played for the infamously, racist club of Wanderers, which, leaves me thinking that, the fact that he was white, one can only hope, was not the reason he essentially became the main voice of West Indies Cricket !

Only those who truly knew him, will be able to answer that one. I just hope my thoughts are wrong, as he always seemed to be a decent enough fellow, but hey, White and Bajan, generally, is not such a positive mix, anyway, moving on …….

The biggest loss of the last few though, has to be Prince, say what you like about him, lil’ freak, illuminati puppet, or, whatever you will, but what a musical talent !!!!!

He was as good a live performer as i’ve, EVER seen !!!!!

…. and i’ve seen my fair share !!!

…. and he was just a phenomenally gifted musician, just from the volume of instruments he could play, and the legendary stories of his levels of productivity, let alone creativity, that would seemingly have him working in the studio, having just gigged for a night.

My enduring memory will be from his set of O2 performances, and seeing this diminutive figure come on stage at the afterparty, in a HOODED, Yellow Suit, icon of much, from sexuality, to fashion and sonic arrangement.

A Genius of the music art form, who is already, and i’m sure will be, missed for many many years to come, RIP Sir …. for the work you put in while you were on this earth, you deserve it !!!

Moving on, I have now entered my 46th year of life on earth, which I do, in no small form, give thanks for, however, as said, so much is changing in this world of ours, and as I have said on numerous occasions before, I don’t see too much of it as being progressive, however, this is probably, just me.

Thankfully, my vibes have brought me to the Bajan’ Countryside, in a lovely remote location, essentially, getting me further and further away from people, not that i’m anti-social or anything, but, have become happier to indulge in listening to peoples bullchit’, less and less frequently, as time goes on, because there’s only so much a man’s brain can take, when it operates on planes of logic, thought and common sense, which is clearly, NOT SO COMMON in the majority, sadly !!!

Waking up to a view of the East Coast of Barbados, and a landscape of green, that surrounds, as well as horses, cats, dogs, goats, chickens & a peacock, who happens to be quite the noisy fellow, is indeed, paradise like !!!!!

Especially when, feeling the sea breeze flow through the verandah, where I now do much of my chilling and contemplating, is indeed a blessing that year 46 of my life is glad to have as it’s beginning !

Thus, much that was important to me, is becoming less so, due to the peaceful vibes I now have, as well as the decent people who have embraced having me in their space, which I am very grateful to them for !!!

They are indeed, a rare breed, who are hard to find on this island, but they do exist, and, when receiving such levels of respect and warmth, one can only let peoples’ issues pass you by …..

A very cool place to be, mentally and spiritually, not to mention, the fresh fish that the locals know how to prep, tasty oh yes … VERY TASTY !!!!!

At no time in my life have I ever felt at this much peace, a beautiful thing, which is a change I am happy to embrace, and shall attempt to keep, for as long as is now possible !!!!!

The city and it’s hustle and bustle, is something i’m happy to forego, to make the countryside my home ……

Change …. in this case, is proving so far, to be the catalyst for rest,
and development of more than my bank balance, or, my personal goals, but simply, an aid to retaining my sanity and therefore, my peace of mind.

Stay blessed y’all, and remember, peace of mind is indeed, HARD TO FIND !!!!!

…. but, when you do get some …..

My advice is … Hold onto it for as long as you can !!!!!

The Virge, out of here for now ………

“A Fine Line” … A poem written by Big Virge 21/7/2006

Folks …
It is a … ” Fine Line ” … !!!
that … Clearly … Defines …
the road that I … Walk …
with words that I … Rhyme …

cos’ … words that I … talk …
may see me … in … Court … !!!

without … ” Sean ” …
or … ” Just Cause ” … !!!

because of YES … ” Them ” …
Those in … Governments …
and Those … who they … send …
to enforce … ” Poor Judgements ” … !!!!!

but ofcourse … They’ll Contend …
That … My Wordplay … OFFENDS …
and may well stir up … ” Trouble ” … !!!
and cause …. ” VIOLENCE ” …. !!!!! ….

But ….
It’s okay for … THEM … ?!!!?
to say … ” What They Like ” … !???!
and Declare … Their War Fights …
as forms of …. ” Defence ” ….
when plans they … Design …
keep causing … PROBLEMS … !!?!!

Well ….
It doesn’t seem like … ?
their actions are … Right … !?!
When … Every … News Night
The Things … In Our Sight …
KEEP … Showing Us … VISIONS …
of people who … ” DIE ” … !!!!! …

Now ….
That’s A … “Fine Line” …
I have … Re-designed …
from Princes’ … ” Great Song “…
The … ” Sign ‘o’ The Times ” …

So …
Don’t get me … wrong … !!!
My lines are … ” Refined ” …
and Clearly … “BELONG” … !!!
where fine lines … recline …

Each line that I write ….
Proves my mind is …

…… ” Inclined ” ……

to write about crimes
affecting …. Our lives ….

and it is a … “Fine Line’ …
that helps me to … FIND …
a way to … ” Express ” … !!! …

My … ” Anger and Stress ” …
About … How We … TRY … !!!
to do … what is … “RIGHT” … !!!!

But …..
What does this mean ?!?
in a world so … “Unclean” … !!!!!

What do we stand for … ?
when going to … WAR … !?!

We should take a ……………..
………………………………………

…… Pause …………..

and … THINK of … Our Cause …
Is making …. Blood …. POUR ….
what we’re … Really here for … ?!!!?

If you’re thinking … “YES” …
Are you …. ” Really Sure ” …. ???

How would you feel ?

if the blood poured
was ….. YOURS …… !!!

or ….
Someone … YOU LOVED … !!!
and Really … Cared For … !!!!!!

Well
As these lines … State …

It is a … “Thin Line” …
between YES …..

” Love and Hate ” …

but ….

“Hating” … For REAL … !!!
Won’t help us … Relate … !!!

These days …
it’s quite … CLEAR …
The Dangers of … FEAR … !!!!!

But …
That’s … Nothing New … !!!

The past’s given clues …
of how … IGNORANCE … Fuels …
individuals to … USE …
Torture and … “Abuse” …
Through crews filled with … FOOLS …
who think … Hatred … IS COOL … !!!!?!!!!

Well ….
Hatred Profiled …
Does NOT … !!! …
Lead to … Smiles …

It leads to a … place …
That’s Not … quite so great …
and leads us … though leaders …
who like to …. DICTATE ….

Like those around …. NOW …. !!!
who want to … “Clamp Down” …
on people like …. me ….
whose wordplay’s … So Neat …

That …. Our Poetry ….
Gives Policemen … ” A Beat ” …
That makes them … RETREAT … !!!!!

See what I mean … !!!

My … Poetry Seams …
are … Suitably … Clean …
and walk a … Fine Line …
of … ” Quality Rhymes ” …
that … Bypass … Extremes …

because they’re … Inclined …
to …. ” UNIFY ” …. minds ….

See …. that’s how i’d like
My Wordplay … DEFINED … !!!!!

Speaking … Your Mind …
Should … NOT BE … A Crime … !!!!!

Unless what you say …
Divides and spreads …

…… ” HATE ” ….. !!!!!

I’d rather spread … ” LOVE ” …
Through … ” Kisses and Hugs ” … !!!

while most now … Indulge …

In Acting like … THUGS …
and taking … HARD DRUGS …
when they’ve …. had ….
… ” Quite ENOUGH ” … !!!!!

People like … THESE …
make me want to … CUSS … !!!!!!!

But ….
These days i’m … TRYING …
to … Rise uP …. ABOVE ….

These … ” Wannabee Thugs ”

Who spread talk of … ” Dying ”
cos’ their words … NEED … !!!

……. ” Refining ” ……. !!!!!!

Things you … Put Out …
Come back son …

…. ” Don’t Doubt ” …. !!!!!

Now, that’s a … Fine Line …
that’s got … Lots of … CLOUT … !!!

So think … CAREFULLY … !!!
before … Running Your Mouth … !!!!!

Fine Lines … that I write …
of … Upsetting Designs …
are … NOT to … Start Fights … !!!

So ….
REMEMBER … That Line … !!!!!

They may cause … Offence …
and may cause … Arguments …

But ……
USE …. ” Common Sense ” ….
and … REJECT … ” Violence ” … !!!

Keep a … ” Cool Head ” …
Like … “Des Dekker” … said … !!!!!

Then … Pick up a … PEN
rather than … Make Attempts …
to bring me …. DISTRESS …. !!!!!!!

cos’ you …
want to … SUPPRESS
A view i’ve expressed …
that’s left you … UPSET … !!!!!

That message is … SENT …
to those … ” Jealous Gents ” …
Who Think they’re the … BEST …
at writing … Fine Lines …
with words that they … Rhyme …

Well … CLEARLY …
They’re … “BLIND” … !!! …
and … Out of Their … Mind … !!!!!!

to think that … Their Rhymes …
are … Better Than … MINE … ?!? …

Those causing us … STRESS … !!! …
are those in … ” Governments ” … !!!!!

They … Plan to … DIVIDE …
NOT … see us … ” UNITE ” … !!!!!

THINK … about that …
before starting … FIGHTS … !!!!!

” Black On Black ” …. crime …
has been … ” Long Designed ” …

Don’t You … think it’s time … ?!?

We start to fight … THEM … ?!?!?
and their … ” Bogus Systems ” … !!!

That’s where …..

I will … END …
This simple … Poem …

cos’ …

Words in … ” Those Lines ” …
May … cause me … PROBLEMS … !!!!!

Even though ….

Their JUST … Rhymes
that flow … and … DEFINE
How the words … I Transcribe …

REALLY WALK … !!! …

…. ” A Fine Line ” ….

“Films & Violence” … A poem written by Big Virge 10/11/2004

A Re-post, before this site closes, who knows for how long, or when, but, here is one of those pieces I posted on here, in the good ol’ … Early Days ….

Enjoy folks … !!!!!

Ya know …

This Violence thing ….
just isn’t in me … !!!
I’m just wondering when …
you masses will see ,,, ?

That wars are like whores ….
“Without” … A Pussy … !!!!!!

See … it really is … “Futile”
to be messin’ with me …

I’ve got logic like Spock
and … Big Ears …
Don’t you see … !?!

Yes …
The name is … ” Big V ”
and this style I believe … ?
is called … “Slam poetry !?!”
and I hear that … to win …
it helps if … you’re …

……….. FUNNY …….. !!!!!

Well …..
I hate to … Disappoint …

But …
That’s just … missing … the point !

I try to write things
that are built to … ” Anoint ” …
An … “Elixir of Pictures”
in terms of … My … Scripture …

That Affect … your mind …
Like … Smoking … “A Joint” … !!!!!

See …
One day it was Yoda …
who said to me ….

‘Virgil my son
this poetry thing
is your DESTINY !!!”

Like Luke I said ….

“Maaaannnn,
that just isn’t me
performing this thing
they call, Slam Poetry !?!”

So ……
Now that this veil …
is …. Covering me …

I feel like Darth Vader …
with forces … So DARK … !!!!!

I keep checkin’ my head …
for that … 666 … Mark … !!!!!!!

But …….
God’s force … I … ” Believe ” …
just keeps … “Loving Me” …
So … “My Soul” … like my mind
will always be …. ” FREE ” ….

“Violence” … surrounds me …
yet … “Angels in my Heart” …
but it’s …… “Lucipher” ……..
Don’t you …. see …. !?!?!?!

who sits back with a … “Fag” …
looking on …. ” Patiently ” ….
Awaiting …. Those …. “Fools”

………….. Wanting …………….

“Destruction’ …… of …… ” WE ” …..

“We” …. as in …. ” PEOPLE ”

So …. What’s Your … ” Destiny ? ”

It’s … “Lost Souls” …
who’ll be … DAMNED …
for ……. ETERNITY ……………………

So …….
What DO they … Achieve … !???!

See ……
I’ve found … NO Relief …
and now … “TRULY” … Believe …
A … “Great Many” … in this world
just keep being …. ” Deceived ” ….
by … BULL**** … and … Lies
that the ….. Media ….. “FEEDS”

While these … “Draculas” … ” SUCK ! ”
It’s my heart that just …. “BLEEDS”

Thus My Words …
search for … “TRUTH”
with …. ” INTENSITY ” …. !!!!!

while Violence … now … ” Reigns ”
in each … ” Big City ” … !!!!!

EVEN ……..
Young Girls will … “KILL” … !!?!!
Stab a gay … in his chest …
or …. could it be …. This …. ???

Is she just … “Re-enacting” …
what she saw in … Kill Bill … !???!

“We told you before,
Quentin’s films are TOO VIOLENT !!!!!”

The censors … Complain …
but … who is the … Tyrant … ?!?

A man using film … to …
“Reflect” … our … Environment

Or …. “Overpaid MP’s” ….
who NEED … Early Retirement !!!!!

So … Who do you … TRUST … !?!

“Ashes to Ashes”

…….. or ………

“Dust to Dust”

An Icepick … in your chest … !!!
in a … FIT … of … ” LUST ” … !?!

Well …….
It’s my … Basic Instinct …
That allows me to … “Drink” …

I’ve got … “A Shield of Steel” …
But … My name ain’t … “BATFINK” … !!!!!!

See …
In these few words …
“My Truth” … is …

…. REVEALED …. !!!!!

and like … Bruce …
I survive …..

On my … “Boy Scout” … Appeal … !!!
but now it seems ……….
Like Lambs ……..

You’re all … “quiet and silent” …
as I draw …. analogies ….
from movies … with … VIOLENCE …

So … when this …. Inscription ….
is … “FINALLY” … “DONE” …

Will I be … ” The ONE ” … ?
who’s … INJECTED … your mind
with thoughts of … ” Freedom ” … ?!?

Well …..
Be careful what you wish for … !!!
cos’ i’m the … “Wishmasters’ Son” … !!!
and will take your … Last Breath …
if you wish to … Retain …
Your … ” Youthful Reflection ” …

So …..
What … Reflects … WHAT … !?!?!?

Is it … Life … “Within Movies” … ?

…………….. or ………………….. ?????

Movies that …. ” Reflect ” ….
what goes on in … OUR LIVES … ?

I’m not Arnie …. !!!
BELIEVE ME ……… !!!!!!!!
What’s TRUE … in a … LIE … ?!?

I’m a … “Lyrical” … Prince …
but … My Doves … “DO NOT CRY” … !!!!!!

It’s … ” PEACE ” … That I LIVE FOR … !!!

So this VIOLENCE …

…….. “ MUST DIE ” ……. !!!!!!!
