In amongst all the Pish that’s going on … written by Big Virge 26/8/2013

Yes Yes … Motha funksta’s … !!!!!

Well, as the, “Summer Rains”, of Barbados, do their thing, and my body keeps tellin’ me ….

“Eh bwoy, mind yaself, try and exercise, before me show you some pain ya can’t recover from … !!!”

I find myself in the midst of political shifts that are seemingly, increasing the angst levels in many people here, Bajans’ are indeed, Quite The … ” Different “, breed, in many ways … !!!!!

…. however, much like the masses of countries who live under what is essentially, still, British/Irish rule, they are complaining amongst themselves, rather than in the corridors of power, of those, they chose …. to vote in !!?!!

Thus, job pressures, strange economic decisions, and business pressures are now beginning, to seemingly, hit home. Everyone from students to some of the islands elders, are now seeing that, from the likes of LIAT, to, Barbadian Governance, there are problems in the region, that, perhaps needed to have been addressed before the likes of Richard Branson and others start to point them out to the rest of the world !!!

Anyhow, in amongst all this, I have to shout out my man Moss … !!!

… who has shown me something that, very few, in fact, hardly any Bajans’ have done, since my arrival, which is to, show me a good time amongst, “The Locals”, who, although clearly, not as well off as their white counterparts, find ways to get by, look after their young, and live in impoverished zones, just up the road from the likes of white folks who have everything and more ……… well, it would seem, but a REAL sense of community …. ???!???

Hmmmm …. I would seriously question their version of communal living against that of the block I was on last week, having had a really cool, afternoon & early evening there.

Even the bank i’m with here, who’ll get no free advertising on this page, had representatives who treated me as though, I am a human being, not some, “Scary, Crazy, Angry, Drug Induced, Maniac !!!”.

Wow, it’s taken, pretty much a year and a half, but, better late than never I guess !!!

My insurance company has also, in the last few, been showing me that they are actually, pretty efficient in ensuring that the accident I have recently been in …

(Thanks for asking everyone, yeah i’m fine !)

…. gets handled suitably, as it was quickly established that the, “white bod”, who was probably on his f’ing phone, was totally at fault !!!

Toyota here in Bim, is up to standard, at least, thus far, fairly friendly, professional and helpful, which does make you wonder what the rest of Barbados is playing at, in terms of their service ethics ???

Anyway, no such issues on the block last week, children in full flow, running around and causing as much disturbance to adults as they were, receiving love ….

A beautiful thing, and very inspiring for a writer like me …. !!!!!

The local, young puppy dog, on the lookout for a feed, which he/she got in the form of some Bajan takeout !!!!!

“Food” ….. to heighten the minds and spirits of the men and women, who, slowly but surely gathered for a dominoes session, which went from, late afternoon to night, like the sun and moon up in the sky !!!

No fancy apartments, just, I guess … ???

…. what many would many would define as, “Tenement style living”. An example being, the, Corrugated Iron Roof, over the wooden bench, where viewing of the domino table, could be availed.

All, practically built and designed, to enable the locals to chill, and, cool out, while tunes ran from yards, phones, or wherever sounds could emanate from !!!!!

I do not come from, abstract poverty, but, know what it is to use outside toilets and to bath in tubs from a pipe, and it does amaze me to this day, that, some people never escape such living !

Ghetto living, I hear you ask … ???

NO, just homes in poorer zones, while the wealthy look down at the residents, from a distance, in their heavily secured & gated homes, or ….

“Ghettos” … of a different type maybe … ?!?

So ….

“Escape” ….. is not what I see it as being, it would be to just have what the rest of us, “Well to do”, folks, have ……

Does our water make us any cleaner or better … ???

I somehow doubt it, but, as my Landlord was quick to advise me of today, my new neighbours are from the British High Commission !!!

“Like” …. Big F’ing Deal !!!!!

As if, my flying half way across the world to chill for a while, was to be next to the same ilk of Brit, who I couldn’t get close to, when living in London … !!!!!

Life eh …. You just can’t legislate for how it can play out sometimes …… ?!?

Anyway, as I explained to my landlord, “Titles'”, mean nothing to me anymore, especially when being on a block up the road, has shown me that, half of my neighbours rent for a year, could probably provide for, that, “Whole Community”, a level of development, that would avail, a less impoverished style of living !!!

I dare not say … BETTER … cos’ who’s TRULY living better huh ???

I saw peaceful, happy, fun-filled times, in just 5 hours, that, I will remember til’ the day I move on to what is hopefully, a more balanced, realm, where all this inequality, doesn’t exist.

We even had that, “Classic Moment”, where, due to one of the children’s attentive eyes, a Rather … BIG CENTIPEDE … !!!

… was spotted as dusk brought darkness to the block ….

Thank the father for, “Young Eyes”, huh !!!!

There was the usual commotion in establishing who was gonna kill it, interestingly, while my man, in his Timberlands, backed off … LOL … !!!!!

It was a reminder of why I wanted to come back here after, my visits, as a youngster, which I am thankful to my parents for doing for me, now, more than ever !!!

Maybe the other ignorant stuff that i’ve experienced, have indeed, been valuable lessons, backbiting, threats, and basically, a reluctance to face, “TRUTH”, or, show some sense of remorse for, said, ignorance, may well be about to face, Karmas’ Powers ….

Well, as time rolls on, I can only hope so …..

As for being on the block for a night, it was, indeed, a highly pleasurable experience and had none of the … “Wrong & Strong”, behaviour, that I have sadly, become accustomed to, from Bajans, claiming to have … RESPECT for man … ???!???

Well … there was … NOTHING … “Wrong & Strong”, to speak of, in this day, and, fa sure, not one iota came my way, and the funny thing is …..

This experience on … my brothers’ … BLOCK …

was …..

In amongst the Pish … that’s currently, going on …. !!!!!

Bless up y’all and have yourselves …. A GREAT WEEK !!!

One.

Big Virge.

“Composure”… A poem written by Big Virge 21/9/2006

In these days and times, you’ve got to have it people … !!!!!

One … Must show …
…. ” Composure ” ….
when facing … ” Exposure ” …
to … Ignorant Heads … !!!!! …
“Showing” … Disrespect … !!!!!!

Like those …
QUICK to run …
Their … “jealous” … gums …
who … ACT … as though …
They Fear … NO FOE … !!!!!!!

There’s … ALWAYS ONE … !!!!!
who will … succumb …
to … Provoking You …
through … ” Shady Moves !!! ” …

The … Type of Fool …
who can’t deal with ….

… ” The Truth ” … !?!

and runs … A Show …
that is …. ” A Joke ” ….
because their … flow …
….. Through …..
Speech … or … Prose
is … Nothing More …
than … WEAK and Flawed … !!!!!

The type … who lick …

Assholes … ASSHOLES … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Nazi Type ….
” Neo-Fascist ” ….
who keeps … His …

…. ” NIGGERS ” ….
CLOSE TO …. HIM …. !!!!!

Just like …. George …
and …. Mr. Blair ….

These … “Evil Types” …
are … ” Everywhere ” … !!!!!

Offering … Bribes …
to … Dummies Inclined …
to … ” Towing Their Line ?!? ” …
of … ” Corrupted Designs ! ” …

They’re …

Greasy …. Slimy ….
Sneaky … and … Grimy … !!!!!

The type … whose death …
Won’t Be … ” Untimely ” … !!!!!

” What’s Wrong … with them ?!? ”

Well clearly, they ….
Have got … PROBLEMS … !!!!!

Some …
Try To … IMPRESS …
through their ….
Use of ….. Text …..
when they should … accept …
that their prose … is …

…. ” Worthless ” …. !!!!!

“Classic” …. FOOLS ….
who make … Wrong Moves … !!!!!

Just to … make you …
Lose your … cool … !!!!!

When … dealing with them …
” Composure’s ” … The Tool …
that makes them start to …

….. ” Hurl Abuse ” ….. !!!!!

and … continue …
to break the … RULES … !!!

” The Rules ” … of …
……. The Game …….

that … CLEARLY … State … !!!

RESPECT … is … EARNED … !!!!!
NOT … Taken … OKAY … !!!!!!!!!!!

These FOOLS … can’t take …

” Truthful Wordplay ” ….

So they …..
Choose to display

” Aggressive Traits ” … !!!

when clearly … They …
should … Know Their Place … !!!!!

Watching those ….
who … COMMAND … The Stage …
with … Ease … Composure …
and …. Such Grace …

That …
WHATEVER … They Say … !!!?!!!
Leaves … Them …

….. Upstaged ….. !!!!!!

” Jealous Ingrates ” ….

who think … because …
You’ve … Walked … AWAY …
that … You’re … AFRAID …

which is …. Ofcourse ….
Their … First Mistake … !!!!!

There’s …..
ALWAYS ONE … !!!!
who is … So Dumb … !!!
that their own actions …
Leave them …. STUNG …. !!!!!!!
and in …. The End ….
cause them … Problems … !!!!!!!!

If they were …. ” Clever ” ….
They’d use … Their Heads … !!!
and use … Their Pens …
to prove that they’re … ” BETTER ” …
than … Butting Heads … !!!!!! …

But …..
They choose to … REJECT …
… ” Butting Intellects ” …
cos’ … They KNOW …
that’s a … ” Test ” …
that’s … BEYOND … Their Best … !!!!!

That figures …….

” Oh Yes ” … !!!!!

because they’re … ” INEPT ” …

So they … Choose to …
Make … THREATS … !!!!!
as well as … ” Disrespect ” … ?!!!?
… ” Respected Poets ! ” …
who they know … write poems …

Waaaayyyy ABOVE … !!!!!!

Their attempts …. !!!

They think that they ….
are … WINNERS … !!!!!!!!!

When … CLEARLY … they …
are … SINNERS … !!!!!!
who are … Absolute …
……. BEGINNERS ……. !!!!!

Who …
NEED to … Learn …

to … SIMMER … down … !!!

It’s Not … Their fault …
that they … are … ” CLOWNS ” … !!!

But …..
Threats of …. ASSAULT ….
May … bring them … DOWN … !!!!!!

So ….
REMEMBER … These Words … !!!!!

They’re … WELL OBSERVED … !!!!!

Their … IGNORANCE …
has … NO DEFENCE …
and just … CONFIRMS …

Their Lack …..
of … ” Depth ” … !!!

Their … ARROGANCE …
Drowns … ” Common Sense ” …

which … In the … END …
They may …. REGRET …. !!!!!

Their movements …
……. ” SMELL ” …… !!!!!!!!!!

of ….. ” Jealousy ” …..
because they … write …

” WEAK POETRY ! ”

That … SHUNS Truth …
and … ” REALITY ” … ?!!!?

It seems … ” The Truth ” …
Hurts Fools … like … THEM …

….. ” Therefore ” …..
… ” Their School ” …

is one for people …
with … ” PROBLEMS ” … !!!!!

So …..
Now … This Piece …
has reached ……

It’s … ” Closure ” …

The Moral … is …

when dealing with …

” Human Insects ” …

Don’t get … TENSE … !!!

If they choose ta …
… ” Taunt Ya ” …

Ignore them … YES …

and show …..

…. ” Composure ” ….

“Lack’ … A poem written by Big Virge 20/6/2006

2013 has shown me in so many ways how people are lacking in a great many things ….

Here are a few that I could clearly see, were gonna become more visible in people, some time ago ….

So, what do you … “LACK” … Huh … Motha Uckers !!! …………

Everybody lacks … something …
That’s a … Fact … !!!

So …
Let me ask you this … ?
What do … You Lack … ?

Do you lack …
” Common Sense ”
or …. Confidence … ???

or …
Do you lack what it takes … ?
to forsake what you gain …
from living … just for money …
like these … Corporate Heads … !!!

Well money …
” Certainly ” …. Pays …. !!!

But ….
Does not … ” Allay ” …
Unhappy Days … !!! …

Ask those … who take …
“Every Piece” … of the cake … !!!

If they say … Their Cash … !!!
Removes … Their Pain …
They’re being … Fake … !!!

Question …. ?
what they say … ?

If they lost their …
… ” Loved Ones ‘ …

Could their cash … Replace … ?
” Loved Ones ” … who’d placed …
Smiles on … Their face … !!! ? !!! …

The answer is … NO … !!!
and this … They Know … !!!

So …
Do you lack …
” Other things ” … ?
that … make you think …

” What is The Point !!?!! ”
of … Making Noise …
about the way …
we live … today …

Well …
that’s okay …
it’s been … that way …
since the … early days …
of … ” Shackled Slaves ! ” …

Many lack … the ability …
to face … ” The Truth ” … !!!

Do those … last words …
Apply … to you … !!?!! …

Well …
If they … DO … ?!?

You’re lacking in food …
You should … Consume … !!!

These days …
I Lack … ” Patience ” …
with those who are …
….. ” Blatant ” …..

” Ignorant Fools !!! ” …

Those I find …
with … ” Narrow Minds ” …
who choose to … move …
in the land … of the blind … !!!

Those now inclined …
to … Ignoring Signs … ?!?
that …. ” Indicate ” ….

………. ” New ” ………..
” Troubled Times ” … !!! …
for … “Our” …
” Human Kind ” … !!!

But … if we pressed …

“Click” ………..
Rewind …

I’m sure we’d find …
Many Things … ” Replicated ” …
Like …… ” Old Pastimes ” ……

Do you lack … ?
The Ability …
to want to … ” Backtrack ” … ?

Can I ask you …
” Freely ” … ?

Why are you … like that … ???

Afraid of what you’ll see … ??!??
or … what you’ll … FIND …
that’ll … EXPOSE … Lies …
“Cleverly” … disGuiSed …
to keep … The Truth …

hidden ……

….. From …..
” Enquiring Minds ? ” …

This seems to be …
… ” Planned ” … !?!

to … Ensure Most …
….. ” Lack ” …..

” The Ability ” …..

to deal with … FACTS …

Like …..
Why are women …
Soooo hard … to understand … ???

In the very beginning ….
They’re … HARD to ATTRACT … !!!!!

If ….
You’re a man …
who … HOLDS … Your Stance …
THAT … You give a damn …
” About ” … Their Needs …

while those who … Lack …
such ….. ” Courtesies ” …..
seem to get … Pussy …

Like …. ” Next one please !!! ”

Girls who … LACK …
any … Common Sense …
are those … I don’t want …
inside ….. My Bed ….. !!!!!!!!!!

But ….
Hell Yes … Yeah …

I’ll pass through theirs’ … !!!!!

Now ….
Hear me out girls …
Don’t take … Offence … !!!!!

But ….
Too Many … of you …
Pick The ….

“Wrong Damned Men ?!?”

Again and Again …..
Your Case … CLEARLY …
Has …. ” No Defence ” … !!!!!

These days …
There’s a …. LACK ….
of … ” Good ol’ … FUN … !!!

Especially with …
A … ” Good Woman ! ” …

….. ” Relationships ” …..
seem to end … So Quick … !!!

Before … ” Love’s Able ” …
to get a …. ” GRIP !!! ” ….
and have a chance to …

…….. ” Sit ” ………

at the … Dinner Table …
That’s … ” REALITY ” …
and is … ” No Fable ! ” …

Like …. Kane and Abel …

Things are … CLEARLY …
Quite …. ” Unstable ” …. !!!!!

Like … reception through …
Those … ” Dodgy Cables ! ‘ …

No … MTV …
or … Sky TV …

But …
Here’s the link …
So take … THIS IN … !!!

There’s now a … LACK …
of ….. ” RELIABILITY ” …..
in how …. People ….
Now Seem … to be … !!!!!

“I’ll call you tonight !”

“Cool, that’s just fine,
I should be home,
by, half past nine,
don’t let me down,
I don’t like to be clowned !!!”

“Trust me man,
I will ring you !!!”

” Haven’t heard from
….. THAT FOOL …..
for a whole week now …
if he calls me with …
A Poor excuse …
My mouth is gonna,
leave him … Schooled …
and make him … frown …
with the words … I Choose … !!! ”

I just can’t stand ….
when people …. LACK ….

….. ” Reliability ” ….. !!!!!!!!!!!

or … is it … Just Me … ?!?

Asking … TOO MUCH … !!!
to hope that …. Some ….

“Good Ones” … are left … !!!
who are …. ” Reliable ” ….
from … Start to End … !!!

and deal in …
” Honesty ” …

People … You TRULY ..
can call … Your Friends … !!!!!

Well ….
One thing … I Don’t Lack … !
is a will to … ” Express ” …
through poetry …. sent ….
to my …. Notepad …. !!! ….

So … now it’s time …
to end … This Rhyme …

About ….
Some Things ….

That … WE ALL …
…… ” Lack ” …… !!!!!

But ….
If you think ….

You DON”T … Lack Anything … ???

Let me just say this ….

You are … DREAMING … !!!!!!!!!

EVERYONE …
Lacks something ….

That’s just … FACT … !!!!!!!

So …..
Be HONEST … with yourself …

What Do … You … ?

…….. Lack …….. ???
