” Know Your Place ” (Explicit) … written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so another month and another load of very strange stuff going on !

The whole NFL kneeling situation has got very testy, with the President becoming quite colourful in his use of language, regarding the Kaepernick followers, who, in all honesty, do seem to have jumped on board his ship, a little late, in my opinion.

The increased rhetoric from a President who could clearly care less about, what opinions people have, from the press, to his own staff, and of course, people of colour, has, all of a sudden, even got players, outside of the NFL kneeling as well now, as if that’s gonna change the attitudes of patriots and racists alike …. I think not.

Hertha Berlin players took a knee today, in an apparent stand of ….. ???

Oops ….. ???

KNEE of solidarity with the NFL players, who are wanting a change of mentality, towards what exactly ?

Flag waving patriotism, National Anthems, Police Brutality, or the basic, racism that appears to be, a standard, for how people of colour are treated, generally by, fairer complexioned folk.

Now this, “People of Colour” Phrase, is one I cannot relate to, as firstly, as the old joke goes, nobody shows more colours than white folks when they show us shades of blue red, brown and ever other colour under the sun !!!!!

However, NOT all people of colour feel liks’, quite like BLACK People, but yet, Chloe Bennett, sorry, Wang, from Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, is now suggesting that the level of racism in Hollywood & the UNITED States, affected her ability to use her actual name !!!!!

All of these scenarios link themselves to the idea of yup, you guessed it ….

Knowing Ya RASSHOLE Place people !!!!!!

I mean, the NFL thing has got a bit silly now, and the players do have rather large amounts of money to enter, political arenas, if they want to don’t they ???

…. instead of facing head injuries, etcetera, that could leave them worse off than a police beating !!!!!

Well, maybe not, but …..

Black folks getting their noses out of joint, need to check themselves, and recognise their role in affecting change, in a world which is essentially, governed, by the spoils from systems that, support the sentiments of anthems, like those of the US and the UK ….. a la …

Rule Britannia ….

English folks will apparently, never ever be slaves eh ?

Yeah right !!!!

Similarly, the girls are on the charge again, Bill Cosby having, kinda sneaked off the radar because, OH NO, A Big WHITE, Hollywood producer has been harassing, multiple actresses, over an extensive period of time …. basically being, his time as an Exec … !!!!!!

Shock Horror …. SURELY NOT ….. !!!!!!

Okay so, here we go, us terrible men, and oh wait, no-one believes women when they claim sexual abuse, which is one of the reasons he has got away with his, ” Alleged “, deviant behaviour around women………

Okay so, that means we should believe them now ???

Calm yourselves folks, it’s just a question ?

Harsh as it may seem, how does a little man like Weinstein, get away with causing so much pain to these women, who, so many have looked up to, for what exactly ?

Well, before I get the feminists on my ass, you ladies need to think it through, and decide whether, so much sympathy should be being handed out to women who clearly, seemed to know their place before……

Keeping their mouths shut, for jobs and money, when maybe they should of been opening them as much as other parts of their body have been ….. to protect the sisterhood, that they claim outweighs any amount of pay ……. or job security …… ???

One to think on ….

Theresa May allegedly wants ignorance and intolerant individuals to, ” Know Their Place “, in Britain…….

Huh Hmm, the less said about that, the better ….. and of course, I have to mention the Girl Guides apparently becoming, Boy Scouts ???

…. which has clearly stirred some, considerable consternation ….

Now, other than Bruce ??? Caitlin ???

I dunno …… that Jenner Fella, being named woman of the year, last year, in certain peoples eyes …. this has to be one of the most absurd things of the last few months …. ?!?!?

The world has indeed gone, ” PC Crazy “, as well as completely irrational, on so many levels now !?!

Let the girls be girls, and the boys be boys eh ….

and on that note….

Come on people, like this piece says ….

” Know Your Place ” … !!!!!

” I Really Love Sex ” … written by Big Virge 20/03/2006

World Poetry Day was not so long ago, being the 21st of March,

So, this piece expresses my love for this art form….
Don’t let the title fool ya, or, excite the perverts among ya …… !!!!!

I hope y’all enjoy the vibe, as much as I enjoyed writing it,
because the truth is that……

I … REALLY LOVE … Sex …
ESPECIALLY with … My New girlfriend … !!!

I Love … women …
but really can’t be doing ….
with … Arguments … !!!

That’s why … My … ” Pen ” …
is my … New girlfriend …

We make … ” Love ” …
and Love the touch …
of pen to page ….

When we … Engage …
It feels just like …
A … Sexual High …

NO … NOT That Way … !!!
You’ve got a … SICK BRAIN … !!!!!

There’s Nothing … quite like
Sexy … Feminine Thighs … !!!
but … after sex …
and … Cigarettes …

Some girls give … STRESS …
to their … boyfriends … !!! …

That’s why I like …
to … sit and write …

Because ……..

I Don’t get stressed …
by my … New Girlfriend …

Her name … is … ” Pen ” …

NOT … Penny …
or … Penelope … !!!

Should I …
say it again … ?

My … ” Pen ” … is now
My New … girlfriend …
and YES … we have …
INCREDIBLE … Sex … !!!!!!

The kind of sex
WITHOUT … the stress …
of …… HIV ……
or other types of … STD’s … !!!!!

Sex like this …
is … TRULY … Bliss … !!!

NO Condoms …
and NO … Colons … !!!!!!!!!

Except … for those …
that fit in … Prose …

So … NO Assholes …
and NO … Mistakes … !!!

Helping us to … avoid …
Long Term … Headaches … !!!

But … EVEN If …
by chance … they do …

Trust in this … !!!

They’re just … ” Removed ” …
Without … tissues … !!!

Or … with trips …
to … ” THOSE ” … Clinics … !!!!!

If … During …
or … because of … sex …
We make a … Mistake …

NO … Pregnancy tests … !!!
or … Arguments …

Our friend … ” Tipp-Ex ” …
is our … ” Best Mate ” …
Just like … THAT …
Mistake … ERASED … !!!!!!!!!!

I’m telling you … Straight …
Our sex is … GREAT … !!! …

I think that … Pen’s …
My New … ” Soulmate ” … !!!!!

She’s … ” Tall and slim ” …
and at a … ” Whim ” …
Can change the colour …
of her … Skin …

And …………… If I think …
She’s a bit …. ” TOO BIG ” … !!!

She Doesn’t … fume …
if she gets … Ditched …
for … Another Pen …
I choose to … ” Pick ” …

This simply is …
The way of things …
in our … Sex Relationship …

” IT’S … ONLY SEX ! ”

is what she says ………

but makes sure that …
it’s NEVER … Bad …
when she’s attached …
to my … ” Notepad ” … !!!!!!

She’s … QUALITY … man … !!!!!
and i’m … SO GLAD …
that she … ” Found Me ” …
Through … ” Poetry ” …

She told me ….

” Virge, I love your rap … !!! ”

but then … Of course …
I answered back …

“Come on now Pen,
It’s not just rap !
Don’t get it confused
like certain crews !
This is something
Beautiful !
What we do,
leaves people moved,
just like you,
whenever you choose,
to sex it up,
in my front room !!!”

She simply said,

“Big Virge that’s true !
How about this view ?
Your way with words
makes our love work !”

I’m … Telling You …… !!!

She’s a … SPECIAL … girl …
who makes me feel …
On … TOP OF THE WORLD … !!!!!

She loves me with …
Her heart … FREELY … !!!!!

and chooses to ….
Just …. let me be ……..

Until it’s time …
to just … recline …
and let our souls …
Make Love … through scrolls …

It’s MORE THAN … sex …
when this …. Unfolds ………………….

NO GIRL … provides …
Such … ” Loving ” … vibes …
WITHOUT … ” Conditions ” …

That’s … THE CRIME … !!!!!

Whenever I write …
It’s a … JOYOUS … Ride … !!!

Even when …
My Anger … finds …
A place within ….

” Poetic ” … lines …

But … EVEN … then …
” My Pen ” … Still Shines … !!!!!

and let’s me know …

” Hey Virge it’s fine
I’ll Love You til’,
the day you die !”

She is …” My LIGHT ” …
and my … SUNSHINE … !!!!!
and is … ” The Love ” …
that … FILLS … My Life … !!!!!!

When I just ………. sit ………..
and HOLD …….. ” My Pen ” …….

She ALWAYS sends …
My brain … these scripts …
that … in the end …
are … Celestial Gifts … !!!!!!!!!!

Negative … or … Positive
The balance reached ….

REJECTS … needless
……….. Vanity ………

but Welcomes … MORE …
………. Humility ……….

That’s why … The Sex …
is … SO DAMN GOOD … !!!!!

because … My Pen ….
will NOT BE …. ” Pulled ” …
Away from … ME …
for Cars … Babies …
or …. BIG MONEY …. !!!

She just … ” LOVES ME ” …
Through … ” Poetry ” …

Like My Mother …
did … DAILY …

From … UP ABOVE …
These days … My Mum’s …
STILL LOVING … Me …
Through … ” My Pen ” …

UNCONDITIONALLY … !!!!!!

So … NO WOMEN …
NO … Arguments …

Just …..

Me and … ” My Pen ” …
as …. ” Sexual Friends ” …

Until … I FIND …
within … ” This World ” …

A Truly … SEXY …
SPECIAL Girl …

Who … in the end …
when we’re in … Bed …

Makes me … ” Feel ” …
just like … ” My Pen ” …

and makes these words …
run through … ” My Head ” …

Because of her … WOW …

I Really … Love Sex … !!!!!!!!!

“Racism Pon’ TV” … A poem written by Debronique Ellis

All i’m gonna say is, WOW, couldn’t of put it together better, myself !!!
More power to Ms. Ellis !!!

Racism pon TV

Racism, what is it?
Is it to judge a man by the thinness or the thickness of his lips,
Di shape a him nose, di style a him clothes?
How can it be, that my blackness or my brownness or my whiteness
determines me, my personality?
Well you tell me! You di man pon di TV!
Oh! yuh think I didn’t see!?
because you try to hide and disguise while YOU, dear sir, patronize!
And somehow manage to pass di message to di unsuspecting minds!
Minds that cannot recognize the signs, di discreetly degrading lines
dat these actors are paid to say. Why do dis when you say, all men are equal?

Lies! This is not wat you truly believe!
Yuh too lie man! Stop deceive!
If wi all equal den why? Why portray me di black man as di bad guy?
Why portray him di Chinese as di smart guy?
Why yuh mek it look like seh she di Indian nuh have nuh common sense,
And seh you di white man, must control all di dollars and cents?

Racism what is it? Is it to judge a man by di texture a him hair,
him skin colour black, white or fair? Yes! But check dis:
di bigga heads dem all know dis,
Suh dem wont set up di media by being what we call ‘racist’, no!
Dem do it discreetly, dem use subtlety, all in the name of entertainment.
And wi buy dis, disdainful arrangement!?
Pon di tv we are being stereotyped, marginalized, categorized by our race and ethnicity.
Maybe not openly and directly,
But it is there, and if yuh smart or observant yuh will become aware.
Aware that di tv many times portray you and me as:
Di theifin’ criminal black or Hispanic bwoy!
Di Chinese weh can only own a restaurant or hack a computer!
Di Indian weh own a grocery store!
And di white man, inna him white collar,
stepping out wid him briefcase
Looking so dapper!

Look pon all dis, yuh eva notice, say in a horror movie wen a man fi dead,
Is always di black guy?!
Yes man, di white man have to survive!
“Oh, but this is just the plot of the movie and surely not racism.” Why?
“Because it’s not degrading or alluding to a race being inferior.” Shut up!
And stop di pretence! Cause me di black man, di Chinese man, all a wi have sense!
Wah mek di Indian caan own di multi-million dollar corporation? Or run out and save
di white man from a dangerous situation? No…..
Him nuh superior enough!
him nuh light-skinned enough!

This could just be my ism…. or di definition of racism!

Suh racism, what is it? Check yuh dictionary or guh turn on yuh t.v!
