” 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 ……

” 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 ……

“Denial” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

Oh and…. before anyone starts running the ….

“Oh, he’s obviously got a problem with gays !”, type rhetoric….

Well, this piece was actually written on the 29/06/2005

A whole 10 Years ago !

My position was clear then, as it is now, and much like all the other groups who are spoken about, within this piece, if they want to be accepted and treated EQUALLY, like everyone else ….

Well, accept that everybody ISN’T, necessarily down with the Gay Movement ….

and that some of us are not just gonna fall in line with the ….

“Oh, You’ve Gotta show support for the gays”, vibes, that are currently riding …

VERY HIGH …..

Anyway, let’s get to the bigger issue of denial in peoples’ attitudes ….

As the poem states, it is a BIG F’ing Problem …. and if you are one who takes offence to things you hear in this, well, you would seem to have a cap to wear that has on it’s peak, in …

BIG BOLD LETTERS

D E N I A L …..

Get over yourselves, and face what you know to be true, not only about yourself, but, more importantly, the world around you …..

“What Can You Do ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/11/2005

Ya know …..

This is a question ….
that leaves me …
… ” Confused ” … ???

The question is …
…… ” THIS ” ……..
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Now …
Trust me folks …
i’m not here to … Abuse … !!!

But ….
Come On Now … !!!
Don’t Act … ” The Fool ” … !!!!!

Don’t be … ” SURPRISED … !!!
When … ” Drug Filled Highs ” … !!!
slowly …………….. “subside” ………..

and … ” Modern Life ” …
Leaves you … ” Feeling ” …

…. ” Pain and Strife ” …. !!!

It Seems … these days … ?
that … riSING Tides …
and … Government LIES … !!!!!
have made … “Some People” …

………. ” REALISE ” ……… !!!!!!!!!!

Life is …
NOT About … Mad Cash … !!!
Cocaine, Speed,
or … Afghan Hash … !!!

Life is … So Much …
MORE … Than That … !!!

So ask yourself … ?

What can you do … ?
to … BETTER … things …
for … ME … and … YOU … !!!

” Going ” …
to … school …
is … Many’s View …

OK … that’s cool … !!!
but … WHO … has built …
These … “INSTITUTES” … ??!??

of … ” Education ” …
” Government Taxation ” … ???

Take … ” Your Time ” …
it’s NOT … A Crime …
to let these thoughts
run through … Your Mind …

How many youth ?
will get the chance …
to dance … The Dance …

THAT … ” Rich Kids ” … do … !?!
while watching … ” Daddy ” …
“FILL” … His … ” Boots ” … !!!!!!

It’s just a … Question … ?
like …….. ” This One ” …

What can you do … ?

How about this … ?
Don’t Live … for … YOU … !!!!

Live for … Those …
Who … Surround You …

These days …
That’s … HARD … !!!
I know … That’s True …

But …
Here’s a … Quote …
to give you … ” Clues ” …
on … How to … CHANGE …
These …. ATTITUDES …. !!!!

The needs of …
THE MANY …. !!!!!

“OUTWEIGH” … !!!
The Needs …
of …. The Few ….
or … THE ONE …. !!!

Take that … IN …
Don’t spit … but … CHEW … !!!!!

These words make …
Me … Want To … DO …
things like … REASON …

NOT …..
Preach or Train
but … try to … Explain …
How to …. KEEP …. !!!
A … ” Sense-Filled ” … Brain … !!!

and …
How to … COPE …
with … ” Mental Pain ” …
and let them … Know …
Life’s … NOT … A Game … !!!

It’s … HARD … these days …
To Make … That Move …
because … BUREAUCRATS … !!!
Try … “Stopping” … you …

That’s the … way ..
They … Like to be …

But …
TRUST ME … folks … !!!
They WON’T … Stop Me … !!!!!

from …
Trying to use …
My Poetry …
to get to … ” The Few ” …
Who … HEED … My Speech …

So ….. ?
What about … YOU … ???
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Try Being … TRUE … !!!
With Friends and People …
You … Speak to …

That’s … just the … START … !!!!!

because change won’t come …
from … ” Smart Remarks ” … !!!!!

While you sit …
in your … ” Phat Yard ” … !!!!!

Those who … do this ..
” Think ” … They’re Smart … !!!!!

Until … Their World …
is … ” RIPPED ” … apart … !!!!!

Nowadays ….
in … Many Ways … !!!

Natures’ ANGER’S …
On … DISPLAY … !!!!

Earthquakes … and …
WILD … Hurricanes … !!!!!

See ….
These are things …
WE CAN’T … ignore … !!!!!

Money Wars … !!!
leave people … ” POOR ” … !!!!!

While people … sit …
and now … ARGUE …

Come on man … !!!
What Can You Do … !?!

NOT … Everyone …
is BAD … out there … !!!

But …
HEAR ME … CLOSE …
Please be … PREPARED … !!!!!

because snakes …
are … “lurking” …
and will … DARE …
to … Threaten You …
and make you … SCARED … !!!!!

So …
Don’t just let them … !!!
Do … YOUR SHARE …. !!!

and show the … Moaners …
That …… YOU CARE …….
and want … RID OF …

” New Tony Blairs !!! ” …

The only thing … constant …
is simply …. ” CHANGE ” ….

So ….
Don’t just sit there …
…. ” RE-ARRANGE ” ….

and make …
” Our World ” …
A … BETTER PLACE … !!!!!

Just …
REMEMBER … Folks …

These are …
” MY VIEWS ” …

So … take them … IN …
