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

Well folks, following on from my previous post about Fools and their Foolishness, it’s clear that Brexit’ negotiations may prove to be, a little frosty, from the EU’s perspective, but hey, Theresa May never struck me as a particularly easy woman to have to negotiate with, as she immediately reminded me of a Certain, ” Iron Lady “, by the name of Thatcher….. upon my first sight of her !!!!!!

However, there are party shifts, from members of the public, who of course are individual parties …

…. to possible, European shifts, as elections shine a light on the underlying issues of a Union that, CLEARLY was, (Never Really) …. That Unified …. ???

Or… was it … ?!?

Well, the Party does, “seem to be over”, with regard to Britain and their status amongst their European friends ….

Did I say friends … !?!

I mean …. counterparts of course !!!!

(Maybe not, quite so FRIENDLY, and ” Seem ” … being a very important word, in all the public shenanigans they feed the masses…….)

However, parties of all kinds are taking issue with Mr. Trump and his policies too, as they have been and continue to do, towards Jacob Zuma, and notably now, in Venezuela too …..

Noticing a trend folks ???

Well, Barbados has it’s political issues too, but, the people here, are a little less bothered by them, or again, are they ???

Well, much like the beginning of this poem suggests, i’ve had my fill of pretty much, ALL of these parties and partying now …..

Well, who wants to be the old man in the club eh ….. ?!?

Certainly NOT… Britain anymore, that’s for sure …. LOL ….. !!!!!!

….. and this piece takes a swipe, if a slightly, facetious one, at all these various parties, political or otherwise …..

Take a listen …….

“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

I Used to Love H.E.R.

This is my, Ode to Poetry ….

Saucy title, but hey, why not … ???

Enjoy !!!!

…. as this piece hopefully shows, how much I ENJOY, as well as a thousand other adjectives, writing and creating stuff that could be deemed as being a little bit …… Poetic …..

So here is ….

” 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 … !!!!!!!!!

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

Election Week, so, a good time to speak on … ” Cliques ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

So, after last month, speaking on the lack of certain things, this month I speak on something, we could probably do with a few less of … !!!!!

Now, I never really was one for, fitting into them …..

However, of course, like most young men, I ran with a crew or two, but, always felt that the dynamic held, hidden agendas, ulterior motives, and invariably, a lot of suckers and, lying Motha’ F’kers …..

Not much has changed in my opinion, from artistry, to a great many things in this world …..

So, for this subject, even though I wrote this, basically, ten years ago, it’s content is pertinent and relevant, especially as it’s been quite a year for the exposure of many of these collectives, The BREXIT Cliques, JOKERS … !!!!!

The FIFA Cliques, of the seemingly, money grabbing, embezzling, deceitful members, of it’s hierarchy ….

The Drug Cheat Cliques, and their cohorts ….

The … INCREDIBLY Deceitful, Ryan Lochte, Clique … Tut Tut Tut ….

The Paedophile Cliques of the BBC and seemingly, much further afield in the, apparently, not so … ” Uni ted ” … Kingdom ?!?

(Again -JOKERS !?!)

The EU Clique ….

The … Of course, “Black Lives Matter” ….
and …. ” ALL Lives Matter ” … Cliques …

ISIS, Terrorist Cliques, and the cliques that, THREATEN, Western Freedoms & Liberties…. whatever they are ….

Which of course, brings me to … The Police …

A Clique who work to preserve our freedoms and safety, well, if you believe that, then you are probably part of the Trump, and ….

Hold on … Wait a minute, Clinton Cliques too … !!!!!!

So, for most people, it would seem that, they fit into one or t’other of these cliques ….

I’m happy to be part of a … “very small clique” … !!!

Well, a virtually, non-existent one, who wants to use artistry to expose these Fukwits …. for what they are … SHEEP … or, better defined, SHEOPLE’, who bleat, more than they, claim their …

INDIVIDUALITY ….

So, as we are in the heat of US, Presidential Election week, in the, again, CLEARLY ….

NOT SO …. Uni ted …..
States of America …..

Due to their, Democrat & Republican Cliques,
(Both being, JOKERS who embrace the use of … BIG GUNS, BOMBS and, BIGGER EGOS !!!)

This piece would seem to fit perfectly with much that we’ve seen in 2016 …. and sadly, throughout, human history …

” Cliques ” …..
