In A Week of Comebacks … written by Big Virge 18/4/2019

Yes Yes Folks, well, it’s been a few, but i’ve been busy doing my do, prepping a few jewels to now start sharing with you !

And I DO MEAN BUSY … !!!

And …..

This has a brought about a rather impressive level of creativity, from some of the older heads I have connected with, so, contrary to my own belief, all things being equal, there will be a couple of comeback tracks from Big Virge, which will be bringing me back to my TRUE Musical Preferences, of Soulful Music, with the odd snap of Boom Bap Hip Hop, and some other liks’ here and there, so, DON’T SLEEP, there is a LOT MORE music to come from Big Virge !

So, this connects me to the rather incredible comebacks of Tottenham, for one, Tut Tut Pep’, just make sure you continue to make those Mis-Steps, as it would be the comeback of all comebacks, for Liverpool to get to the place that has proven to be beyond them for far too long !

TOP SPOT in the Premiership Title Race, and they do look like a team, that, dare I say it, barring injuries or anything crazy happening, are a team worthy of completing what has been a fairly smooth season thus far, that has shown them to be resilient, and able to win the games that before, were literally proving to be the Banana Skins, denying them glory.

We shall soon see ………………..

Finally then, and by no means least, is the comeback of all, this past Sunday, when a certain, Eldrick ” TIGER ” Woods, returned to the Major Winners Golf Circle, with a literal, MASTERS’ Display, to ward off the young pups, who, for a while may have felt as if the game was theirs to take over.

Well fellas, THINK AGAIN … !!!

I have been, like many others, critical of Mr. Woods off course shenanigans, however, when it comes to his skills with clubs in hand, I could not have been more upset at the prospect of him never winning a major again, so, box ticked, props to ya Tiger … !!!

It was a truly, astonishing achievement, and may you go on and sneak past Mr. Nicklaus to become the indisputable, Greatest Golfer of All Time !!!!!

So, what do I return with … ???

Well, nothing quite as astounding as Tiger’s comeback, however, talking of astounding things, it would be remiss of me to not speak on Brexit’, and the crazy mess that Britain is proving itself to be becoming ….

Deadline Missed, Extensions and Cross Party Talks are supposed to do what exactly, make all this seem worthwhile ?

Well, Good Ol’ Theresa is soldiering on, I dunno bout comeback, but, there’s been a whole lot of Backtracking and Backstabbing going on, so it’s time for me to take a few pot shots at another issue that seems to have conveniently, stopped being so regularly spoken about, that being, the Grenfell Fire, and the farcical leadership, that no-one seems to be able to get rid off, like a bad case of well, something that ….

You REALLY Could Do WITHOUT … !!!

So folks, here we go, a little poetic flow from Big Virge, for the week, with MUCH More to come ….

BELIEVE ME … !!!!!

But for now, i’ll leave you with some Big Virge ….

” Love Thy Neighbour ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 11/01//2006

As if I hadn’t seen enough of this, in England, now, I see it in, my parents back yard, from those who are apparently, connected to me ….. ?!?

What a F’ing JOKE !!!!!!

Showing love to … ” Them “, and people in general, these days, sadly, many years after writing the below, is becoming, more and more difficult … chuh’ … !!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” ….

for those …
Who Don’t … know …
was a … 70′s Show …
that used … ” Racist Jokes ” …
to show how it … goes …
with some … English Folks …

” FEAR ” … of Blacks …
and that’s … JUST THAT … !!!

Things …..
Haven’t changed much …
and that’s a … FACT … !!! …

But some … ” White Girls ” …
Take time … and … ” Learn ” …
That … Black men … KNOW …
What ROCKS … ” Their Boat ” … !!!

Some White Men … HATE … !!!!!
to … see them ………. Stray …………

“Into Beds” …. where ….
Black Men …. LAY …. !!! ….

Because …….
Like … ” They Say ” …

“If he’s not on crack !
Once they’ve had black,
they won’t turn back !”

Now I … DON’T BELIEVE …
That … This is … ” True ” … !!!!!

cos’ girls … these days …
are … ” SO CONFUSED ” … ?!?

because of …. ” DRUGS ” …
and ….. TV News ……
that leaves them …

…… ” Lost ” …… ?? !!! ??

and with ….. ISSUES …… !!!!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” … ?

Do me a … ” Favour ” … !!!!!!!

Girls these days …
Make Love … HARD LABOUR … !!?!!

But …..
As i’ve said …

” The Show ” … Reflects …
on how … ” Racists ” …
Try To …. ” INFECT ” …. !!!

The minds of … YES … !!!
Their groups of … ” FRIENDS ” … !!!!!
from stories …. ” Bred ” ….
from … IGNORANCE … !!!!!!

“It’s just the way they are !”

….. They Say …..

“Without a brain,
and, taught to rape !”

“Hold on there mate !
The News, these days,
has set things, straight !”

“It seems, some whites
are, not so nice !
and like to sex,
young child, you’ll find !
Yes, those profiled,
as Paedophiles !”

“It’s just the odd one !”

I Hear them CRY … !!!!

Like those … ” Employed ”
by … ” Government Types ”
with …. SEX OFFENCES …
on their …. ” File ” …. ?!!!?

“You’re INSANE ” … to claim …
You’re … CIVILISED … ?!!!? …
when kids are … ” Abused ” …
by …. ” Teacher Types ” ….

Most crimes by … Blacks …
Aren’t of … THAT STYLE … !!!

Most Blacks … commit crimes …
to …. ” JUST SURVIVE ” …. !!!!!

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …

PROVED … that blacks … !!!
Face ….. Racism ….
whilst having to … ” Labour ” … !!!!!

Just to keep ….
Themselves … OFF STREETS … !!!
where … ” Lives of Crime ” …
are then … ” Designed “…

and then the …
” Racists Say ” …

“Black people,
have got no shame !!!”

Well …
The show was … STOPPED.
in … Seventy Six …
because of … Complaints …
about … What it … ” Portrayed ”

Well ….
THIRTY YEARS LATER … !!!!!!!
Things … Seem the same … ??!??

We’re … STILL VICTIMS …
of … ” English Racists ” … !!!!!

They say,

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …
couldn’t … air today …

WHY ….. ??? ! ???

because it shows …
Old English Ways … !?!

” RACISM ” …
….. and …..
Good old … HATE … !!!!!!

So …..

” Love Thy Neighbour ” …
What do you say … ???

How’d you like to wake up
to my ….. ” Black face ” ….. ???

Do you feel … “ashamed”
of … what you’ll … SAY … ?!?!?

Let me … Explain why …
You feel … like that …

You’ve been …
… ” Programmed ” …
to … see us … THAT WAY …

THE DARKER … We Are …
The lower …. our grade …. !!!

EVEN … Today … ?!!!?

Some … think that way …
” PROGRAMMED ” … Okay … !!!

But …..
You have a … BRAIN … !! ? !!

I’m speaking … MY MIND …
and … WON’T APOLOGISE … !!!!!

Some blacks … STILL THINK …
that they …. are …. WHITE …. ??!??

Are you … SURPRISED … ?

Well you …..
Uncle Tom … ” Guys ” … !!!

May just be … ” FIRST ” …
to hear … ” These Words ” …

“Those, Black People
are worse than, dirt !”

So ….
Uncle Toms’ …. ?

Do those words … HURT … ?!?

The colour of … Your Skin’s
Still deemed to be … ” A SIN ” … !!!

Thirty Years ……. on ……..

” Love Thy Neighbour’s ” …. gone ….

But Racism ….
Keeps moving …. ON …. !!!

and STILL … we have …
These … ” UNCLE TOMS ” …

Some who …. CLEARLY ….
Now wear … ” THONGS ” … !!!!!!!!

From … ” New Orleans ” …
to …. ” English Streets ” ….

RACIST … Police …
and subtle … ” Schemes ” …

Like …
Making SURE …
… ” My Poetry ” …
is kept … “unseen” …
by those who … ” Choose ” …
To RUN … from ……….. TRUTH ………….

” These Days ” … it seems …
There’s ….. QUITE A FEW …… !!!!!

Who … “hide behind” …
A … CROCK OF LIES … !!!

Those who run …
Most … Poetry Nights …
seem … “CLOSELY LINKED” …
to …. ” Government Types ” …. !!!?!!!

” FUNNY, That … !?! ”

I’m a bit … surpRISED …

That’s ….
NOT QUITE … True … !!!

Moves … They Make …
are so … ” SEE THROUGH ” …

I Now … ” Care Not ” …
for things … ” They Do ” … !!!

I’m … NOT … in this …
to ….. ” Influence ” …. !!!
or to … make myself …
….. ” New Friends ” ….. !!!

But Girls …. HELL YES ….
I Love … Straight Sex … !!!!!

There’s NO … better friend …
Than YOU … in the … NUDE …
On My … ” Double Bed ” … !!!!!!!

SEE ….
I Play it … STRAIGHT …
That’s right … I’M NOT … gay … !!!!!!!

and DON’T … ” Play Games ” …

UNLIKE … these blokes …
who use … ” weak quotes ” …
to … Make You … ” Think ” …
They’ll … ROCK … ” Your Boat ” … !!!

But …..
Enough of … THAT … !!!!!

Will … Whites and Blacks … ?
Ever … ” Face The Facts ” … ?
Before … Governments …
Make things … COLLAPSE … !!!!!

I Suggest …..
You … THINK ABOUT THAT … !!!!!!

UNITY’s … A Flavour …
I Would … SAVOUR … !!!!!!

I’d rather have … THAT …
Than … Cash-Type Paper … !!!

So ….

“Guilty As Charged” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/12/2005

This was inspired a long time ago, by the murder of Anthony Walker, RIP.

…. but, how things change, and yet, somehow, “Remain The Same” … ???

Hopefully, ONE DAY, the people, living by ignorant attitudes & wickedness, WILL, one day, like the two boys who I refer to, at the start of this poem, be deemed …..

“GUILTY AS CHARGED !”

Axe Murderers … ???

“GUILTY” …
as … Charged … !!!!!

They’ll now … spend time
” Stuck ” …. behind bars …. !!!!!

But ….
Let me pull …
Some … ” Other ” … Cards
from ….. ” The Pack ” …..

” GUILTY ” ……… ” YES ” …… !!!
Even ….. Today ….. !!!!!!!!!!

NOW It’s … ” WELL ” ……
“hidden” …… away ……

Can … ANY … of you … ?
” Now ” …. TRULY …. say …..

You Don’t Hold … FEAR …
of …. My …. Black Face …. !!!?!!!

Racists now …..
Have found … ” New Ways ” … !!!
and …. CLEARLY ….. Still …..
Have got …. ” NO SHAME ” …. !!!!!

But Some …
Black People … ?!?
are … just the same … ?!?
As …. ” Caucasians ” ….
and some …. ” Asians ” ….

If you have ….
A … Skin Tone … DARK … ?

You’re deemed … to be …
A … ” Lower Class ” … !!!!!!!

Asians … KNOW … !!!
How … “That One” … goes ….

So …
PLEASE … Don’t Even …
Try to …. Start …. !!!!!!!!!!!!

A … ” Marriage System ” …

I’d want to … HEAR …

A Most Eventful Week … written by Big Virge 28/7/2013

Indeed, it has been a very interesting week for me, last Saturday was cool and chilled, but, it takes days to recognise that a simple thing like, falling from a hammock, that wasn’t that high of the ground, for a man my size, can still be quite the damaging thing !!!

I may have been fighting a flu type strain that seems to be in the island at the moment, but, it was the days ensuing, that showed me, that, I may have shaken my spine, neck, and head into places that they shouldn’t of been, so, yup, bit of a rough week, physically, which, culminated in my being in an accident on Thursday afternoon on the Worthing Coast Road, where a man who, apparently, doesn’t live here, decided to drive into the side of my ride, without really giving a damn !!!

Try paying attention my man !!!!!!!!

The fact that he was driving his sisters’ car, says it all really, meantime, I have man trying to get into some kind of war of words with me, due to my explaining that his new love is not in my list of cool peeps, as are many of the collective who surround her.

So, rather than accept that, okay, he can’t do anything about it, he felt the need to embark upon, what I deem to be some kind of threat, which was indicating that, oh, I shouldn’t talk about his woman like that, as in his opinion, she is the best thing since slice bread to walk the f’ing earth !!!

I mean, good for you man, but, recognise, my opinion, i’m entitled to … !!!

…. and, more importantly, I am not gonna do like most people do, and come round them playing that all is cool, when it isn’t, but, this would seem to be the Bajan way, lie to keep up f’ing appearances !!!!!

Why exactly … ???

Bajans, like their English Masters, have become great exponents of the facade/veneer of love and tolerance, but tolerance, as i’ve written about, means, allow to exist !!!

My views, opinions, require no-ones’, “allowance”, of them, they are what they are regardless.

I’ve spoken about, “Manbitch”, behaviour, for some time now, and just because a girl/woman is sucking my balls, doesn’t mean she’s above being criticised, and, fellas, here’s a hint for you, they tend to respect you more, when you are like that, rather than filling up their heads with this idea that they are the sun, moon, stars and everything else ???!!!???

Why, well, because that’s just NOT TRUE !!!

Anyway, I got to the end of the week in fair shape, having been in Police Stations, being told stuff like, ” Calm down, you’re being aggressive ! “, upon explaining that i’d merely come in, due to being asked ….

It would seem that the US and UK style of policing, is reaching the Bajan fold, however, cool and calm prevails, with men who clearly feel that their uniform makes them into some form of god ???

How they can be so blinkered in their vision of themselves, is really beyond me, but, if police across the world are looking at the US and England, no wonder they think that they can, not only talk to people how they want, but, can get away with what they want !!!

NOT COOL !!!

However, what was cool was a very different kind of chat I had with a Bajan Man, when I was in a place getting some bits done.

Now, this man advised me early on, that his grandfather was white, now, incredibly, a couple of generations down, he’s black, maybe not dark like me, but he’s no Obama shade, he is what I define as being a black man, just goes to show you how we are all interbred, at some level, and are perhaps, closer to each other, than all these separatist ideals would have us believe.

Now, on that note, the conversation started on, White Barbados, well, he was quick to state how, white barbadians are indeed, some of the most, arrogant, obnoxious, ignorant people upon this, now, seemingly, god-forsaken planet, full of lies, deceit, and actually, everything but the superiority they like to try to present as being their position.

He further explained to me that in his experiences here, he’s heard white tourists speak on the disgust they have felt, in being associated purely by their colour, to these white Bajans, who seem to feel that even today, they are not to be challenged, questioned, or, worse still, served after black people, at any time !

We then got very deep into the psyche of black bajans, he was quick to level his disgust at the poor levels of service that he sees bajans giving to tourists and ofcourse to black tourists, who, you’d of thought, they’d at least be civil to.

He then explained that he knows what eating three crackers for the day is like, he knows poverty, but, would not allow that to stop him being civil, polite and helpful to anyone needing help from him, especially now that he works, and deals with all sorts of people within his work.

He and I got into the very ideal of the world being in, as his stated, an upside down state of, ” Demonic Madness !!! “.

A very strong term, but, in all honesty, with people dying in more and more vindictive, vicious and brutal ways, it’s hard to dispute, with peoples’ general treatment of each other, seemingly descending, into some, Neanderthal like, grunting, demanding type of communication.

He has children, but was quick to state that he felt me to be a better man than he, for not bringing children into this time, he also stated that keeping out of peoples’ business is an even smarter move, especially here, because as with the aforementioned man, in this post, Bajans don’t seem to be able to accept that you’re here, but, feel happier living without being around them too much, as if they are perfect, and ultimately, honest people to deal with.

He also spoke about the, “timid”, nature of Bajans, relating it to the impoverished living that many have experienced, through multiple generations.

Well, when you study the fact that, other than people like Bernie Grant (RIP) in the UK, very few black people, be they artists or otherwise, are famed for being that individual to have spoken out against the huge levels of institutional racism that is in full effect, to this day, in England, I confirmed to him that, the colonial effect of slavery & the beautiful crafting of mind control that the “Windrush Immigrants”, in England, were then indoctrinated into, has now ensured the legacy, that, as black people, around white folks, we are to be seen occasionally, but definitely, not to be heard.

This, in my view, has much relation to the timid nature of not just black people here, but, all over the world, in many cases.

We spoke about the street mentality black men, who don’t want to do anything, yet, expect everything but the shirt off, “YOUR BACK”, especially from those of us who have worked and earned a little something for themselves, which he stated as being, one of the most painful things to accept about many young bajan men, the disrespect of our own people.

As elder men have explained to me over the years, it is sad, but TRUE, and as the saying goes, when shit hits the fan, they are quick to turn …

NO, not on their oppressors, but, on those who they feel, for some reason, are lesser than them for taking shit from these people, to ensure that you can provide and educate your family and offspring to live in a vein that avails, some sense of parity, if not, financially, intellectually & spiritually.

Funny how so few black folks seem to feel that way about Mr. Obama ???

Anyway, this level of existence makes you into a target, as you shouldn’t have it, because you must have sold out to have something in … “Their world” …. ???

… which doesn’t compute, because some of us have stood firm in offices and on building sites, when faced with ignorance, racism, and denial of pay that white counterparts receive, purely because of the fact that they are white !!!

I dare them street/beach man to try it for a month and see how easy it is, PUNKS !!!!!

IT is a tough world for a black individual whatever level of society you choose to embrace, but, they can’t see that, because their so caught up in their own bullchit, and then feel that they have the right to take from you, when you have worked and struggled and battled your wish to just go into work sometimes, and start letting off on anybody of fairer skin than you !!!!!

The fact is that when you walk out of their den, unscathed, they’d better fucking believe, that’s quite an achievement, because many have failed, because they couldn’t control their tempers or mouths !!!!!

This brings me back to white bajans, who do seem to have that vibe about them, that we black folk, should not have the cheek to talk back to them about anything ….???

Sorry, are we in the fing 1800’s or something, Is Trayvon Martin and the likes of Stephen Lawrence subject matter, stuff that can’t now be thrown up in their face like,

“Just remember, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can treat me like them ?!?”

It would seem not …. but suffice to say, I deal with one, who is my landlord, who is I think, playing at being, one of the new age, slick white boys, but, only when money is being paid to him, it is interesting to study how they are around stronger black men, and then even more interesting to see the types of black people who work for them, and then, the pull they have in various levels of society, where their family members work, and who, in the event of something needing to be resorted, they can call upon.

All this from a 15 minute conversation with a man who did not see me as anything other than being another black male, who ended up in conversation with him, while he provided a service for me.

It is thankfully, individuals like him that keep the faith in men like me alive … !!!!!

Nuff Respect Papa !!!!!

Indeed, i’ll end this post with this line ….

As crazy as this week has been …..

It has proven to be ….

” A blessing in disguise ! ”

Enjoy your week people !!!

I hope to … Finally … get inside the Kensington Oval to enjoy some 20/20 this week ….
