This month’s subject is … ” Hair ” … written & performed by Big Virge

All i’ll say is this …

It is Truly … INCREDIBLE, to believe & see that, in AFRICA … !!?!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-37219471

The matter, of black peoples’ HAIR, is even being mentioned in discussions of how we should present ourselves, in this,

” APPARENT ” ….. Post Apartheid, Mandela legacy, South Africa !

So ….
ONCE AGAIN, for 2016 ….

This stuff is …
BEYOND A … F’ing Joke ….. !!!!!!

However, it is no surprise, surprisingly … to me, with my well … ?!?

Hair …. !!?!!

…. and the all too frequent, disrespectful, name calling comments, that I can barely remember, let alone mention, regarding the aforementioned, Hair … smh …

Blacks, Whites & Asians alike, as this piece states, have no shame in running talk on how mine, and clearly, other black peoples’ hair, grows free ….

Untidy … to them … maybe … ???
Unclean … well ladies, … !!!

I’ll take that, pepsi challenge, that’s it’s cleaner than a lot of y’all …

Pussies … !!!!!

LOL … !!!!!!!

and y’all, UPP-ity … Black Girls … turning up your noses to my kind of wild styled hair, well, you best not be running that, straight FAKE Horse, or, Indian Hair, that ain’t yours alright !!!!!

Anyhow …

Here it is … ” Hair ” …

A lil’ sumthin’ I wrote whilst treading Philadelphia’s streets, whilst on holiday, a few years ago ….

“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 …..

As if that’s … The Way …
for them to … ” Maintain ” …
PROOF … that their … ” Status ” …

Man … ENOUGH … !!!
cos’ it’s … BLATANT … !!!

“Surprised” … A Poem written by Big Virge 14/11/2007

Ya know ….
You’d be … ” Surprised ! ” …
by what you … ” FIND ! ” …
Resides …. Inside ….

Some peoples’ minds … !!!!

in some … it’s Clear … !!!
their thought waves … steer …

to ……

Fallacies ….
Hypocrisy ….
Thoughts of … GREED … !!!!!
or …. Cash Money ….

Others … Choose …
” Conservative ” … views …
about … The World …
and … how it … turns …

I guess … In Truth …
Some minds are … ” Primed ” …
to … DISMISS … clues …
that give … Clear Proof … !!!!!
about … ” What’s True ! ” …

But …..
Truth … These days …
has been …. Mislaid …. !!!!!
in …. Many Brains … !!! …
now … Clearly Drained …
of …. ” Common Sense ” ….

” Airheads ” …
Now … ” STRESSED !!! ” …
or … YES … ” Braindead ” … !!!!!

If that … sounds …

……. HARSH …….. !!!!!

I guess … my words …
have marked … the cards …
of minds that … work …

FAR FROM ……….. The Heart …
of … Rational Thought …
in souls … ” Not Bought ” … !!!!!

” Surprises ” …. for them
are … NOW … in store … !!!!!

” Ignorant Heads ” ….
who … choose to … Absorb …
Ideals of … ” War ” … ?!?
and … Divisive Talk …

Wars with …. A Cause …. ?
To Keep … The Poor …

… ” Controlled ” …
by … Fraud …
and crews that … “Hoard” …
Everything … except …

” The Monopoly Board ! ” …..

Cash and … Land …
Property … that’s … GRAND … !!!
and …. ” Luxuries ” ….
Beyond … Their NEEDS … !!!!!

You’d be … ” Surprised ” …
by what … you’d find …
These People … THINK …
THEY NEED … to … Live … !!!!!

They’d … Probably say …

” It’s relative ! ”

” Relative to … WHAT … ?!? ”

Paid displays …
of … Ignorant Ways …
because they’re … RICH … !!?!!

Well ….
Take This … IN … !!!
and … Think about … THIS … !!!!!

If you’re …
” Attacked ” … !!!!!
because of … CASH …

You … Choose To …

…… FLASH …… !!!!!!!!

by a … NOT HAVE … !!!

What will you do … ?

Act … ” Uncouth ” … !!!
or … Pull a … TOOL … !!!!!
and … Start to … SHOOT … ?!?
To Protect … ” Your Loot ” … ???

The … Poverty Gap …
is …. Wid..en……..ing … Man … !!!!!

and is a … TRAP …
that may … Catch … YOU … !!!!!
If … you’re … NOT … Shrewd …
and … “Chase Gold” … like … FOOLS … !!!!!!!

How much … CASH … ???
Can … One Man … use … ??!??

when other people …
……. ” LACK ” ……..
Basic things …. Like ….
……. ” FOOD ” ……. !!!!!!!

Thousands … Millions … !!?!!
Billions … Trillions … !!!!!!!?!!!!!!!

Think it …..

Through ………………

If you have …
… THAT MUCH … !!!
while others have …
…… NONE …….. !!!!!!!

How much … ” Freedom ” …
will your cash give … YOU … ?!!!?

A … HUGE … Estate … !?!
Behind … LOCKED GATES … !!!!!
with … Cameras Placed …
ALL OVER … The Place … !!!?!!!

” Okay, that’s great ! ”

” Don’t think so mate !!! ”

BIG Cash … !!!
Nice PAD … !!!

But …..
What do you have … ?!!!?

A … Load of rooms … !!!
You … BARELY … use … ?!!!?

and then ….
There’s Bills … !!!

You gonna … ” NEED ” …
…. ” Those Mills !!! ” ….

If you lust for a life …
of … ” Millionaire Types ” …

You may just find … ?
Yourself … ” Surprised !!! ” …
by … what it’s like …
to be like … ” Mike ” … !!!!!

So Many … minds …
are now … Inclined …
to think of things …
like … Being Rich … !!!!!

That … Cash Now … DRIVES …
their thoughts on … LIFE … !???!

But then …
Ofcourse …

Some minds aren’t … ” Fraught ” …
with … ” Greed-Fillled ” … thoughts …

Some minds are … Lined …
with … SO MUCH … MORE … !!!!!

Minds like … ” MINE ” …
are filled with … “Rhymes” …

” Designed and Primed ”
to spread …. Insight ….
About …. ” Our Lives ” ….
through words … ” We Write ” …

Others choose …
” Creative ” … moves …
of … ” Different Types ! ” …

to shed some … Light …
on things some … “hide” …
from … PUBLIC SIGHT … !!!!!!

while some heads …
……. Think ……..
About … ” Deep Things ! ” …

But …..
You’d … Only Know …
if you … get … CLOSE … !!!

and … OPEN … doors …
that allow … for talk …
” Resisting ” … Jokes … !!!!!

These days … I Find …
“Myself’ …. Surprised ….
by what’s … ” Inside ‘ …
Some peoples’ … minds … !!!

” Old and Young !!!!! ” ……

Now … leave me …
…. ” STUNNED ” …. !!!!!!

By …
How … They Think …
about … How We … Live …

” Deep Thinkers ” … tend …
to have faced … ” Tough Tests ” … !!!
that have … Led to … STRESS … !!!!!!!!!!!!

Filling Up …
Their heads … !!! …

and are … Usually Seen …
as being … ” Unique ” …
cos’ of … How They … Speak …
and … Seem to … BE …

Thoughtwaves …
… TOO DEEP … !!!!!
for … ” Sheep-Filled ” … Cliques …
whose minds … ” retreat ” …
from being ….. ” FREE ” …… !!!!!!!!

Some are … ” FEARED ” … !!!!!
and seen as … ” Weird !?! ” …

because of thoughts …
that prove … ” The Force ” …
is … STRONG WITH THEM … !!!!!
because of ….. Depth ……
That … FUELS … “Their Strength” … !!!!!!!

Like … Yoda and …
His … ” jedi Friends ” … !!!!!!!!!!

” People ” …
Like … THESE … !!!!!
are who … I seek … !!!

Flavas …. SWEET …. !!!!!
but … Strong like … beats …
that fill … The Streets …
like …. ” Symphonies ” ….

I’m a … ” Jedi Knight ” …
of a … ” Different Type ” … !!!!!

The type … who writes …
what’s in … My Heart …
and in … My Mind …

My views are … ” STARK ”
like … REALITY’S BITE … !!!!!

But now … I’m back …
to the … Very Start … !!!!!

So ….
Remember this line ….

If you … take the time …
You may … just find …
that what … Resides …
in peoples’ minds …

May well leave you ….

…….. Truly ……..

…. ” SURPRISED ” …. !!!!!

“Is It Such A Crime ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/3/2006

Is it … ” Such a Crime ” … ?
to … ” Speak Your Mind ” … ?

Because ….

it … Seems to be …
if you’re … NOT WHITE …

I hear this, said …
So Many … times … !!!

“Virge, you scare folks !
with words you rhyme !”

and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

but … words I … “Quote” …
are … NOT … The Type … !!!

to … ” Start A Fight ” … !!! …

but may … ” Unsettle ” … ?!?
Those who … ” Settle ” …
to … “hide” … behind …
A … “LIE FILLED” … life … !!!

Can Someone … DEFINE … ?
Why it’s …. ” Such A Crime ” …. ?
to ….. ” Criticize ” ……
…. ” Political ” …. types …. !?!

In times like … THESE …

” FREEDOM ” … of … SPEECH …
is … NEEDED … just like poetry … !!!

if we’re to … ” Ease ‘ …
” Pain and Misery ” … !!! …
and crimes of … More …

… FATAL DESIGNS … !!!!!

“Murders” … “Rapes” … !!!
Crimes … based on … Race … !!!
and Crimes … Inclined …
To Keep … ” The Masses ” …

…………. “blind” ………….

Like Those … in … ” Folds ” …
who make ….. Mistakes …..

Do THEY … ” Pay A Toll ” … ?
for … CASH … THEY TAKE …

” Mistakes ” …
THEY SAY …… !!!

That …..
Pay for … ” Homes ” … ?!?

“It was merely, a loan,
from a chap I know !
No more questions now,
i’ve got to go !!!”

“A chap you know ?!?
can’t we know his name !?!”

“Are you insane ?
is it such a crime ?
for you to find,
that, friends of mine,
help out, in times
of financial strain !?!”

“Of course not sir !
but don’t divert,
what is his name ?
and did he donate ?
to your friends campaign ?
Need I ask you again !?!
the question is
what is his name ???
Let me make it plain !
Are you quite sure
he hasn’t bought
A Peerage, and,
is now a lord ?”

“I will not answer
any more ! What
do you take, politicians for ?
Anyone would think,
our dealings, stink !”

“Well, no more than
a poor street whore
is it such a crime
to want to know more ?”

Could this be why
Government guidelines
are trying to stem
peoples’ questions !?!

If …..
Free Speech … ” Ends ” …

What’ll happen to … THEM … ???
and ……. ALL THEIR …….
” Pre-Planned ” … arguments … ?!?

It seems that … THEY …
will …. carry on ….
Airing …. views ….
Even if … They’re wrong … !?!

Isn’t that … A Crime … !???!

It would seem … NOT … !!!

So …..
How can it be a … ” Crime ” …
to …. ” Speak Your Mind ” …. ?!?

Especially when ….
You’re Proven … RIGHT … !!!

I find this … ATTITUDE …
at …. ” Poetry Nights ” …. ?!?

if you speak about … ” Your Life ” …
that seems to be …. FINE …. !!!!! ….

Or Express … FRUSTRATION … !!!
at the … State of The … NATION … !!!

Through words you write ….

If you are … WHITE …
and they make folks …

…….. SMILE …….. !!!

But …..
if you’re … BLACK …
and make … ” Attacks ” …

On Racists … or …
On … Western Plans …

You’re treated like …
An ….. ALIEN …… !!!!!

It must be … A Crime …
to be a ….. BLACK MAN ….. !???!

Especially when ….
you have … A MIND … !!!!!

Inclined to … WRITE …
” Poetic Rhymes ” …
that spread … ” Insight ” …

” But, SOME BLACKS DO !!! ”

“Well, if that’s true,
let me ask you who
Mr. Zephaniah ???
Okay, that’s one !
But, he’s spent time,
inside prison !!!”
I’m talking about
a black without
a history, of
dodgy deeds !!!”

I think you’ll find … ?
THAT MAN … is … ME … !!!

NO … Prison Time … !!!
has … Big Virge … SEEN … !!!

But ….
May Well … do … !!! ? !!!
for words I speak …

Even when …
My Record’s … CLEAN … !!?!!

Well ….
Clean … ENOUGH … !!!

I … HAVE BEEN …
…. ” Cuffed ” …. !!!!!
for … ” Slapping a girl ” …
For … DISRESPECTING … !!!

……… MY MUM …….. !!!!!

and ….. ” Driving Drunk ” ……

But ….

Both … ” Misdemeanours ” …
were … just the … ONCE … !!!!!
and like …. ” Benjamin ” ….
were when … I was … YOUNG … !!!!!

But …
The Point … i’m trying to make …
is … Black … ” Americans ” …
are … Deemed to be … GREAT … !!!!!

For …
Taking a … STANCE …
Against … ” Racial ” … HATE … !!!!!

WHICH … ” English Black ” … ?!!!? …
Can … Make The Claim … THAT …

They’ve Gained … RESPECT … !!!
for … Taking … THAT STANCE … !?!

What does that say … ?
about those who … CLAIM … !!!

THAT …….

“Blacks are treated,
JUST THE SAME !!!
as every other race,
on, English Shores !!!”

“Are THEY, QUITE SURE ?!!!?”

I’m NO … Malcolm X … !!!
But … DO HAVE … ” A Cause ” … !!!

My cause … ” DEPLORES ” … !!!!!!!
These … ” Government Laws ” …

cos’ … if you’re …
Black and … POOR …
You’re gonna …
SUFFER … for SURE … !!!!!

Even if …. You’re … NOT …
Police now …. “Plot” ….
to … ” Shoot You Down ” … !!!!!

or … Question you … ?
Even if … ” They Doubt ” …

THAT … You … ” ARE ” …
“THAT” … ” Drug Dealer ” … !?!

OR ……. ” The One ” ……..
who STOLE … ” That Car ” … !!!!!

Laws They … PASS …
are now … ” Pure Farce ” … !!!!

It seems … they’ve moved …
But …. NOT TOO FAR …. !!!!!!!

Away … from keeping …
Us ……….. Apart ……….

Ask Yourself … WHY … ???
are They … ” Inclined ” …. ?

to … “RESTRICT” … those …
Who … EXPOSE … Lies … ?!? …

” Creatively ” …
or … ” Otherwise ” …

Through …..
Simply Saying ….
What’s IN … ” Their Mind ” … !?!

PLEASE …..
ask yourself … ” WHY ” … ?

” Is It Such A Crime ? ”
