” Cooler ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So guys what a hot few weeks it’s been eh ?

Wildfires, heatwaves, the world cup, and a variety of hot topics continually arising, that should be causing, at least the odd raised eyebrow, in terms of what is being revealed, or NOT, as the case may be.

So, this month’s little ditty will cover a few things, from last years Grenfell Fire, and the reaction to it, to the continual revelations of Hollywood abuses, and the reactions to them, that continue to heat up, as more and more female stars release information that will have a lot of producers and big movers, loosening their collars, due to the heat of allegations surfacing, and, resurfacing, from the past. Kathleen Turner being the latest to have certain people, looking over their shoulders, right about now.

As per usual, the Donald Trump show continues to simmer, until he gets his nose out of joint, over say, Lebron James, or NFL Players continuing to kneel, or, refusing to stand for the American Anthem before games. The issues of trade, and of course, his rather high profile meetings of recent, which should apparently, be cooling down tempers and the need for nuclear arms.

The Catholic Church, seemingly, abusing children just about everywhere they’ve been, with quite the level of protection, from members of their church to police not taking matters seriously, upon notification of child abuses, that have also been kept under the radar at some schools for decades, coming to light.

It’s definitely been a hot summer, but, not just due to the weather.

Even Tiger Woods has found his golf clubs hotting up, as he gets very close to returning to the major winners circle, at the PGA in St Louis.

The Zimbabwe election situation has caused tempers to hot up due to disputes over the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwas’ election win. South African land appropriation, and a number of other issues in the African Continent.

The Ben Stokes case is hotting up, as did his temper clearly, as the story seems to keep changing regarding his position in the argument that led to him, as he claims, protecting a couple of gay guys from facing abuse …..

Hmmmm, something doesn’t quite add up about that whole scenario, much like the issue of race, as another white nationalist rally is heading to Washington, whilst racist graffiti has been sprayed on a house in Rochdale, where a black family were excited about moving in, so, that debate is still hot for those who aren’t part of the fraternity of famous black folks, who are now not so keen to raise the issue because of the green in their pockets, that has them feeling comfortable.

Well, as this poem suggests, we all could do with a cooling down, or maybe an exhibition of more coolness, when some of these issues confront us.

It’s been a hot summer for sure, but, unlike rain, some of these other hot issues may require some other cures.

Anyway, take a listen and enjoy, and stay cool folks !!!

Bless Up

Ofcourse we should just … “Tolerate” … A poem written by big Virge 17/1/2006

Some things just, NEED to be, RE-ITERATED, or, better still, pointed out to those with good sight, who, STILL CHOOSE, to play blind ….

This is an old piece, reflective of what was once seen as … Great Britain …

Well, as the leaders of this, ” Great Country “, are quick to remind the world of their, “Close Ties”, to America, one would have to wonder how many owners/managers of sports teams, now dominated, in many cases, by, black players …. hold attitudes that are just like the current, hot name in the NBA, who is sadly …. NOT, some fresh talented individual, but the OLD, WRINKLY, Jewish Owner, of the LA Clippers …. Donald Sterling …. !!!!!!

Well, it would seem that, quite a few, Black NBA stars, and managers, “Tolerate”, the likes of Sterling, and his ilk !!!!!

Well, Them, He, and ALL the … Smart-Mouthed, English bwoys, who like to tell men like me to let things go, when it comes to our abuse, mis-treatment & deaths, at the hands of their white brothers …..

They should try to ….. “Tolerate” … THIS … !!!!!

London … has been said …
in a …. ” City Guide ” ….

to be a …

PLACE TO SEE … !!!!!

but …..
You should … ” Recognise ” …

that … prices are … HIGH … !!!
Even for … ” A Short ” … train ride … !!!

EVERYONE … can expect … !!!
to see …. ” Tolerance ” …. !!!!!!!!

Well …….

There are …
Quite a few ways … !!!
To Define … TOLERATE … !!!!!

It can mean …

” ENDURE ” … ” PERMIT ” …
and … ” ALLOW TO EXIST ” …

Further definitions … INCLUDE …

to …..

” Allow to be practised,
without interference,
or, molestation ! ”

We’d …
“better not mention” …

School education …
or problems caused …
because of … “Racism” …

” Some ” …
DO … ” Tolerate ” …

A … ” Foreign Face ” …
but … NOT … Always …
in … ” Respectful Ways ” … !!!

Some Racists … PRETEND …
That we’re … ALL FRIENDS … !?!

But …..
Would … NEVER …
Let … ” A Foreigner ” …

… In Their Bed … !!!!!

If words like those …
cause you …. OFFENCE …. !!!

Try to …
” TOLERATE MATE ” … !!!!!

because ….
I’ve got …. MORE …. !!!
I …. NEED TO SAY …. !!!!!

I Don’t … EXIST … !!!!!
for you to … ” Sit ” …
and just … ” Permit ” …

MY RIGHT … to live … !?!
and …. TOLERATE ….
The things … I say … ?!?

Who told you … ?
to think … THAT WAY … !?!

” So Many ” …. HATE …. !!!
A … ” Darkened Face ” …
and seem to … ” Think ” …
That’s …. NO DISGRACE …. ?!!!?

and is ….. OKAY …… !?!

How can this be … ?
Even … TODAY … !?!?!

From …..

” New Age Slaves ” ….
to …. Yesteryear ….

” MANY BLACKS ” ….
have lived … ” IN FEAR ” … !!!!!
of facing …. ATTACKS …. !!!
that … may bring … TEARS … ?!!!?

When …
MURDERS come …

We Hear …. ” OH DEAR … !!! ”

while words we say …
are … QUICKLY CLAIMED … !!!

to …

” Deserve a place,
penned in, and, caged ! ”

Where ….
We’re … THEN TOLD …

“You’re going to pay !
Your wordplay we,
won’t tolerate !”

South Africans … KNOW …
how … THAT ONE … goes … !!!!!

Mandela was … sent …
To Clearly … ” ROT ” …

DEEP INSIDE … !!!!!! …
A … ” Prison Hole ” … !!!!!

” London ” … can be …
REALLY … COLD … !!!!!!!!

and CLEARLY has …
NO STREETS … of gold … !!!

Unless you … ENTERTAIN …
The … ” Corporate Fold ” …

Well ….
Wherever I go …. !!!

I make it … KNOWN … !!!
by the way I … ” Move ” …

I … ” Tolerate ” … views …
from … ” Racist Crews ” … !!!!!
who clearly … ” Choose ” …
to act like …. i’m ….

Not In …. The Room … ?!?

But ……
Let them …. KNOW ….
Be … ” Cool ” …
and … ” Shrewd ” …

and Try … YOUR BEST …
to … NOT BE … Rude … !!!

and …
DON’T … Presume …
that i’m a …. FOOL …. !!!!!!!!

I’ve been … WELL SCHOOLED … !!!
by …. TRUTHFUL CREWS ….

and …. ” Study ” …. YES ….
” Your ” ….. Daily News …… !!!

BELIEVE ….
in … THIS … !!!

I Know … About You … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t … mess with me …
and i’ll … ” Tolerate ” … you …
and find …. “The few” ….
Who … Clearly choose …
to … see me as …
” A HUMAN ” … too … !!! …

Now …
Governments’ … view …

… ZERO TOLERANCE … !!!!!

is the … ” Best Defence ” … !!!
against … ” Terrorist Sects ” …

Whose words … THEY CLAIM … !!!

Clearly suggest …
A Need for them …
to make … Violent Acts …

But Surely … This …
will cause … Problems … ?!?
when … INNOCENT MEN …
become … ” Victims ” …
of …. ” False Arrest ” ….
and then are … “KEPT” …
for … ” PUNISHMENT ” …
and … ” Torture til’ ” …

They’re almost … DEAD … !!!!!

They say … ” Tolerate ” …
but then … ” DETAIN ” … ?!?

Those whose words …
spread … ” Anger and Hate ” … !!!

They Clearly …
Are Willing … to … ” Tolerate ” …

But ….
Only those …
who … Don’t Complain …

But The …
… Ku Klux Klan …
and …. BNP …. ?!?!?

Have preached … ” Race Hate ” …
since the ….. ” Good Ol’ Days ” ….. !!!!!

But …
STILL EXIST …
Even ….. ” Today ” …… !?!

Does that seem … FAIR … ???

Do You … REALLY CARE … !?!

LET THEM … Say …
what they … WANT TO SAY … !!!

A Pendulum … DOESN’T …
Stop … ” Halfway ” … !!!!!

These … ” Double Standards ” …

“FILL” …. The Air ….

What makes them think … ?
TEMPERS … Won’t Flare … !?!

The air … We Breathe …
WE ALL … should … ” Share ” … !!!!!

I Hope …. You People ….
are …. PREPARED …. !?!?!?!

because …
” Hatred ” … now …
is climbing … Stairs … !!!

Words like … THOSE …
Aren’t meant to … ” Scare ” … !!!

But …. IGNORANCE ….
may take you … ” There ” … ?

” To ” …. THAT PLACE ….
That’s … ” NOT SO GREAT ” … !!!!!

So …. Tolerate …
or … ” Accommodate ” … ?!?

NEITHER … folks …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

” WELCOME’S ” … The word …
That Gets …. ” MY VOTE ” …. !!!

Try … ” Welcoming ” … !!!
with … ” Open Arms ” … !!!

and …
STOP … These Fights … !!!
with … Guns in Palms … !!!!

” Harmony ” …
Breeds … ENERGIES …
That … May just bring … ?

…. ” MORE UNITY ” …. !!!!!!!!!

that helps … more … ” Agree ” …
to … ” Disagree ” … and …

DISMISS ………………. Negativity … !!!!!!!

I’d … LIKE THAT FOLKS … !!!

PLEASE … ” Believe Me ” … !!!

Truthfully … and … Honestly … !!!!!

But ….
Clearly … ” Peace ” …
may now be ….. Lost …………………..

To … ” Society’s Streets ” …

NO UNITY …
for …. ” Humanity ” …. !!!

Those who choose …
to … TOLERATE … That …
have minds … Now Lost …
and … Eternally … “TRAPPED” … !!!!!

I’m a … PEACEFUL MAN …
but … I’ll be … DAMNED … !!!!!

before i’d let …
Racists … ATTACK …
and … Not Attempt …
to … FORCE THEM BACK … !!!!!!

God …

Gave Me … LIFE …
for me to … LIVE … !!!

Let me …
” Take You Back ” ………
to my … First Page …

TOLERATE …. Can mean …

” ALLOWED ” … to exist …

So Who … ??? …

” Oversees ” … THIS … !?!

Those who’d like …
to see blacks … ” LYNCHED ” … ?!?

Does … ” White Supremacy ” …
STILL ………… ” Exist ” …………. ?!?

BELIEVE …. if you like …
DISMISS …. if you don’t …

Slave Masters … CLEARLY …
STILL …… “Have Hold” ……
of …. Many Blacks ….
Who’ve Lost … ” Their Souls ” … !!!!!

Blacks who … ” Choose ” …
To Take …. ” Black Lives ” ….
are WORSE … Than Racists … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who are ….. ” White ” ……

London Lights ….
Do Still … SHINE BRIGHT … !!!

While Blacks …. STILL DIE ….
from …… STUPID FIGHTS ……. !!!!!!!!!

“So, listen black !
Don’t even try !
Killing each other,
is just not right !
Whoever you kill,
had a Black Mother !”

Would You … Want YOURS … ?
to lose you … over …

” POINTLESS WARS ” … ?!!!?

You …
NEED TO ………… Take A ………………….

PAUSE ………………………………………………………

and …. HELP THE CAUSE …. !!!!!!!!!

Use … YOUR BRAIN … !!!!!
and … Stake a … CLAIM … !!!

Show … LOVE and …. ” Patience ”

It’s … EASY to … ” Hate ” …
But … HARD to … TRUST … !!!!!

So ….
Do Your … BEST …
to …. riSE ABOVE ….

Those who … CLAIM …

………… to ………..

….. ” Tolerate ” …..
