” The Dark Wars ” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, here we go into another year … !!!

So, as we have left 2019, we also leave the Skywalkers to fade into the void of space …

As a die hard fan from The 77 New Hope debut, it was a highly anticipated movie for me, however, like many, it seems I have to say that the fandom has a fair case in the criticisms that many are levelling at Disney especially !!!

Firstly, and swiftly, let me deal with the ridiculous levels of Identity Politics, that in many ways, seem forced and unnecessary, in my opinion !

Tokenism, from a race perspective, an overtly feminist agenda, that was so over the top and OP, (Over Powered, for those who don’t know), that even members of these communities, surely, have to squirm just a lil’ bit, at how these agendas are being flouted, even in Star Wars ???

Thus, a same sex kiss was just thrown in to ensure the alphabet genders get into the mix too, even if done at the end, in the background of the victory celebrations scene !

Is this what we’ve come to really, movie makers being the ones fighting for varied causes and movements, that the movements themselves, should surely be taking care of … controversial view, well, I don’t think so, merely, a quizzical thought about what seems to now have become the norm in a lot of todays’ entertainment ???

Moving on, it’s pretty clear that when J.J. Abrams became,

” Jar Jar Abrams ” …. in the view of vloggers’, that problems were abundant with the movie, and sadly this proved to be the case for me, upon seeing The Rise of Skywalker, which had proven to be more like the DEATH, of an incredibly successful franchise !

The non-appearance of its creator, George Lucas, at the movies premiere, speaks more than volumes, it speaks of an incredible disrespect for the thinking, writing and processes that developed the original trilogy.

As many are saying the movie appears to have tried to correct much of what The Last Jedi presented in its story, and thus seemed to be trying to do two movies in one !

Essentially, we are given a treasure hunt, which leads to the finale, which incorporates, a Truly NONSENSICAL, return to life for The Emperor, who we all thought died a long time ago in a screenplay far away !!!

Well, Disney has proven to have had their eyes on the money, ahead of providing a story that firstly, MADE SENSE, with a suitable continuity, which could bring the saga to a satisfying end !

Suffice to say, without even attempting to explain the ridiculous plot, i’ll take from things said by more avid Star Wars fans.

So, Palpatine surviving his fall to apparent death in the, ” Return of The Jedi ” …

Immediate FAIL …

Simply WTF …. ?!?

However, his reappearance guaranteed an audience though right ???

“Can you hear the Disney Money Train ?!?”

It’s clearly a case of follow the money for the decision making by Disney on that one, which ultimately covers the majority of gripes that I and others, have with how this then played out ….

Eventually it also has become clear that honestly, the casting was fair to middling regarding Ridley, Boyega, Driver and Isaac.

I get that they can only work with what they’re given, but over the three movies, they’ve basically failed in creating a dynamic that worked as a new collective, and definitely nothing like as effective as the Luke, Han, Leia, threesome.

So, fundamentally, a poor set of remakes, however, as far as for making easy money, because of the franchises legacy …..

It would appear to have been a win for Disney, especially on the basis of new products to market to new fans !

I just hope this is not indicative of where movies are heading, but much like society, collecting fast bucks ahead of earning it for good work, would seem to be the way forward.

A lot of show, without much substance, again, much like society these days, so, as much as this will obviously upset the racist fans, this version of what could now be done, would probably be better than the one we’ve just been handed !!!

So, here we go folks into 2020, and as much as people try to deny, we’re heading into a dark time where, the title of this piece may well reflect how things are about to be internationally, for most societies !!!

PPS :

I wrote the bulk of this,
BEFORE the current Iran Situation !!!

Anyway, here are some wars that might just be a better option, than the ones we’ve actually got now !!!

ENJOY …

” What Cause is it that they, REALLY, Stand For … ?!? ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 10/11/2013

Following on from my previous post, when it comes to police tactics in situations warranting use of their arrest powers …. a suitable question would be, Why Do They Do It ?

However ….

Now that Eric Garner & Mike Brown,
amongst others, have died,
due to police encounters,
and won’t be returning …

and now that ……..

Judiciary inquiries have produced,

NO INDICTMENTS … !?!

So Many … Protests !!!
So Much … Rhetoric !!!
So Much … Media Talk !!!

Well, I have another question,
for everybody in truth,
from celebs, to looters,
but, specifically for,
smart-mouthed white folks ….

and that question is ….

So … what cause is it ?
that they REALLY … stand for ?!?

because nowadays …
i’m getting … Irate …
due to … ” Fancy Talk ” …
from those … NOT POOR … ?!?

About ….

” How they help,
and can’t do more … !!! ”

or … is that … WON’T … ?!?

when they come from
……. WEALTH ……..
and … Ignorant Hoards …

Families … “FILLED” …
with … ” Separatist Wills ” …

Talking of … ” WILLS ” … !!!

What’s left for them … ???

Monetary Problems … ???
or a cause … instilled …
to change … ” Their Ilk ” …
from … ” Lusting ” … for bills …

Yen … or … Pounds … ?!?

How does that sound … ?
if you’re … ” One of Them ” … !?!

Does your cause stem … ?
from a wish to … END …

… ” Elite Ignorance ” … !?!?!

The type that … ” Defends ” …
White Men who … ” Pretend ” …

to … Give A Damn …
about … Black man …

when the truth is … THIS … !!!

Their talk is … WEAK … !!!!!
cos’ they’re … “Human Sheep” …

who THINK … their skin …
gives them … the right …
to say … What They Like … !!!
about things in sight …

As if black minds …
are … Completely Blind … !?!
to the cause of things …
When … Pressure Liks’ … !!!!!!!!

Like … it is … NOW … !!!!!

Now that things are … FOUL …
They’re …. ” CRYING OUT ” …
for … ” THINGS TO CHANGE ” … !!!

Well okay …
That’s GREAT … !!!!!

But …
” Back in the day ” …
when … ” Momma had slaves ! ”

ALL OVER THE PLACE … !!!!!

Were they … CRYING … back then … ???
for slaves …. BETTERMENT …. !?! ….

and … Educating them …
about … ” RACISM ” …

and ……
EXPOSING … THE TRUTH
about … ” Daddy’s Boardroom ” … ?!?

I’m a bit … ” Confused ” … ???
as to …. ” The Cause ” ….

They seemed to …. ignore ….
that they now …. ” IMPLORE ” ….

as if it’s … NEW …
and should be … USED … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hear … REVOLUTION …
coming from … White Lips …

Oh so …
That’s a … SOLUTION … !!!

Well …..
I’ve got to ask … THIS … !?!

When the Ku Klux Klan …
were hanging … Black Man … !!!

Were they and their fam’ … ?
Taking … THAT STAND … !!!?!!!

“Oh, that was the past !”

“Man, kiss my arse !”

Ignorance was … ” Bliss ” … !!!

Until the pinch … FLIPPED … !!!
and hit ….. ” New Skins ” …… !!!

… ” Financial Tricks ” …
” New Age ” …. Racists ….

” Politics ” … in the mix …
of … ” Corrupting Things ” … !!!

Isn’t this how … ???
it’s always been … ?!?!?

“Well, that was then !
This is now !”

are the … ” Usual Sounds ” …
that come from mouths …
who act like … CLOWNS … !!!

but are quick to … “drown” …

The sounds of thoughts
coming from black minds
as if we’re inclined …

to run …. WEAK TALK … !!!
that is … ” Biased ” … Fa Sure … !!!!

when it seems … Our Cause …
is just … ” Talk That HAUNTS ” … !!!!!

See …
They’ve always got an answer … !!!

As if they are …. ” Smarter ” …. !!!!!!!

Than blacks who take time …
to … Dis-sect … their lives …

and all their … ” Charters ” …
that have made life … HARDER … !!!

Even under …. ” Obama ” …. !!?!!

” Hypocritical Types ” …..
who … THINK … they’re cool …
cos’ they know … Black Folks … !!!
Who Enjoy … ” Their Jokes ” …

Well …..

I Ain’t … THAT BLOKE … !!!!!

and Don’t … deal in quotes …
that hold ….. NO WEIGHT ….. !!!!!

which is why they’re … AFRAID …
of the things I … RELATE …
in my ….. wordplay …..

I’m sick of them … ” Hearing ” … !!!

But NOT ……. ” Listening ” …….. !!!!!

because they’re … ” Adhering ” …
to … “limited” … Thinking …

“Limited by …”
Historical Ties …
They’d rather … DENY … !!!

as being … ” The Cause ” …
for … ” Veteran Wars ” …
and … Humanitys’ fall …

It’s NEVER … their fault … !!!

It was actually …

” The Force ” … !!!!!

“Oh, it was down to Star Wars !
wait a minute now, pause !”

Man i’ve got to laugh …
otherwise i’ll … FROWN … !!!
and decide to … TAKE DOWN …

Them and … ” Their Crowd ” …
of ….. ” KNOW IT ALLS ” ….. !!!!!

Who … ” Choose to Hear ” …
What Suits … their ears … !!!!

They … REALLY DO … !!!!!

and then … ” Run Talk ” …
when the … ” Penny Drops ” … !!!

as if they … KNEW …
what was … said before … ?!?
in talks that … ROCKED …
Their lil’ … ” Cotton Socks ” … !!!

“At the time I was wrong !
and just being headstrong !”

Well …
CLEARLY NOT … !!!!!

When they come back …

NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT … that …
They … ” Bought Into ” …
Fallacy Filled Views …
They’ve read in … ” Books ” …
or been fed … by the news …

It’s … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

We blacks should speak !!!
but … NOT ABOUT … ” Them ” … !!!!

or … ” The Cause ” …
They … DEFEND … ?!?

When they …

” Help The Poor ” …

by … doing stuff …
that’s a … ” Short-Term Fix ” …

So their … ” GUILT ” …
Can … ” Desist ” …

Well …..
Me and My … ” Chip ” …
now write … These Scripts …

that prove … ” My Cause ” …
Is NOT … about me … !!! …

But … EQUALITY …
for … EVERYBODY … !!!!!!!

Even if … i’m seen …
as the … ” Villain ” … of the piece

because it’s … CLEAR … !!!

I Really do … STAND TALL … !!!
and … DON’T MAKE … Dud calls … !!!

like those … whose actions …

” BETRAY ” … Thoughts …
that seem … ” Distracted ” …
from … This Question … Fa Sure … !!!!

” What Cause is it that they,
REALLY, Stand For … ?!? ”
