“Point The Finger” … Written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Yes Yes People !!!

So, what’s going on in your world right now ?

Well, having just watched a very interesting movie about Botswanas’ not so distant history, of race driven shenanigans, that included, quite a bit of finger pointing by the British & South African Governments, ” A United Kingdom “, is a film that serves as a great reminder of the danger of pointing fingers, without justification, especially when yours are clearly, NOT SO CLEAN …. !!!!!!!

Fast forward to today, and there’s so much to think on these days, that connect to …..

” Fingers Being Pointed ” …..

…. that has led to much that we see in the world today.

Especially the modern political landscape of today, as pressures increase, safety concerns continue to disturb, from Migrants apparently, causing problems to Italy’s Southern Coastlines, to Brexit’ talks continuing to apparently, falter ….

…. and talking of faltering ….

NOT, that it was a failure, but sadly, it doesn’t look as though we’ll get to see Mr. Usain Bolt, pointing his arms and fingers to the air in celebration of a major championship 100 metre victory again ….

Ah well, such is life, but I have to quickly give props to this legendary athlete, for all his achievements on the track, and hopefully now, what he should translate into an, off the track legacy, that will not only help Jamaica, in multiple ways, but also, young athletes all over the world, to be inspired to achieve, something even comparable to the, ” Lightning Mans’ “, achievements.

Well done Usain, great career man !!!

However, back to this idea of pointing fingers, well, The Trumpster’ is hiring and firing as quickly as he can point his fingers clearly, Korea are pointing fingers at the US, as are Russia now, and Venezuela and Brazil, seem to have a lot of pointing going on, of much more than fingers sadly ….

and Of Course, one cannot forget the Grenfell Tower Blaze survivors, who are also pointing fingers at the UK Government and wanting, not only answers, but a place to lay their heads, after what now seems to be accepted as Corporate Manslaughter, so, I wonder whether judges will have the balls to point some MP’s to Jail, with no chance of getting Bail, or, a …

” Get Out of jail Free ” … card … !?!

Unlikely …… !!!

… as it seems to be unlikely that Barbadians will do anything more than, walk and talk about, how tight things now are in this island paradise, because of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, pointing to who knows what, to ensure his legacy of governance is not forgotten, for quite some time …..

So, for this month, as there does seem to be a lot of this going on, right about now ……

Some verse worth pondering before you join the brigades doing it ……

I suggest you check YOURSELF, before thinking you can do it …..

“What Can You Do ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/11/2005

Ya know …..

This is a question ….
that leaves me …
… ” Confused ” … ???

The question is …
…… ” THIS ” ……..
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Now …
Trust me folks …
i’m not here to … Abuse … !!!

But ….
Come On Now … !!!
Don’t Act … ” The Fool ” … !!!!!

Don’t be … ” SURPRISED … !!!
When … ” Drug Filled Highs ” … !!!
slowly …………….. “subside” ………..

and … ” Modern Life ” …
Leaves you … ” Feeling ” …

…. ” Pain and Strife ” …. !!!

It Seems … these days … ?
that … riSING Tides …
and … Government LIES … !!!!!
have made … “Some People” …

………. ” REALISE ” ……… !!!!!!!!!!

Life is …
NOT About … Mad Cash … !!!
Cocaine, Speed,
or … Afghan Hash … !!!

Life is … So Much …
MORE … Than That … !!!

So ask yourself … ?

What can you do … ?
to … BETTER … things …
for … ME … and … YOU … !!!

” Going ” …
to … school …
is … Many’s View …

OK … that’s cool … !!!
but … WHO … has built …
These … “INSTITUTES” … ??!??

of … ” Education ” …
” Government Taxation ” … ???

Take … ” Your Time ” …
it’s NOT … A Crime …
to let these thoughts
run through … Your Mind …

How many youth ?
will get the chance …
to dance … The Dance …

THAT … ” Rich Kids ” … do … !?!
while watching … ” Daddy ” …
“FILL” … His … ” Boots ” … !!!!!!

It’s just a … Question … ?
like …….. ” This One ” …

What can you do … ?

How about this … ?
Don’t Live … for … YOU … !!!!

Live for … Those …
Who … Surround You …

These days …
That’s … HARD … !!!
I know … That’s True …

But …
Here’s a … Quote …
to give you … ” Clues ” …
on … How to … CHANGE …
These …. ATTITUDES …. !!!!

The needs of …
THE MANY …. !!!!!

“OUTWEIGH” … !!!
The Needs …
of …. The Few ….
or … THE ONE …. !!!

Take that … IN …
Don’t spit … but … CHEW … !!!!!

These words make …
Me … Want To … DO …
things like … REASON …
with our … ” Youth ” … !!!

NOT …..
Preach or Train
but … try to … Explain …
How to …. KEEP …. !!!
A … ” Sense-Filled ” … Brain … !!!

and …
How to … COPE …
with … ” Mental Pain ” …
and let them … Know …
Life’s … NOT … A Game … !!!

It’s … HARD … these days …
To Make … That Move …
because … BUREAUCRATS … !!!
Try … “Stopping” … you …

That’s the … way ..
They … Like to be …

But …
TRUST ME … folks … !!!
They WON’T … Stop Me … !!!!!

from …
Trying to use …
My Poetry …
to get to … ” The Few ” …
Who … HEED … My Speech …

So ….. ?
What about … YOU … ???
What can … YOU DO … ?!?

Try Being … TRUE … !!!
With Friends and People …
You … Speak to …

That’s … just the … START … !!!!!

because change won’t come …
from … ” Smart Remarks ” … !!!!!

While you sit …
in your … ” Phat Yard ” … !!!!!

Those who … do this ..
” Think ” … They’re Smart … !!!!!

Until … Their World …
is … ” RIPPED ” … apart … !!!!!

Nowadays ….
in … Many Ways … !!!

Natures’ ANGER’S …
On … DISPLAY … !!!!

Earthquakes … and …
WILD … Hurricanes … !!!!!

See ….
These are things …
WE CAN’T … ignore … !!!!!

Money Wars … !!!
leave people … ” POOR ” … !!!!!

While people … sit …
and now … ARGUE …

Come on man … !!!
What Can You Do … !?!

NOT … Everyone …
is BAD … out there … !!!

But …
HEAR ME … CLOSE …
Please be … PREPARED … !!!!!

because snakes …
are … “lurking” …
and will … DARE …
to … Threaten You …
and make you … SCARED … !!!!!

So …
Don’t just let them … !!!
Do … YOUR SHARE …. !!!

and show the … Moaners …
That …… YOU CARE …….
and want … RID OF …

” New Tony Blairs !!! ” …

The only thing … constant …
is simply …. ” CHANGE ” ….

So ….
Don’t just sit there …
…. ” RE-ARRANGE ” ….

and make …
” Our World ” …
A … BETTER PLACE … !!!!!

Just …
REMEMBER … Folks …

These are …
” MY VIEWS ” …

So … take them … IN …
I’ve given … ” Clues ” …
