” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???

Today, the indication is that there will be a new Italian PM, in 2017 ???

A lot of footballers are coming to the table, to expose the incredible levels of apparent, player abuse by British coaches !!!!!

Right wing movements across Europe, bar Austria, of all places, are on the go, and seemingly, on the rise …..

(A third of Austria’s populous voting for a Far Right group, should not though, be overlooked !)

Racism is definitely on the go, as ever, and immigration may well be the next thing to go, in terms of borders being open, to those escaping Syria in particular, but, I think that this is an excuse to keep more than Syrians, or more importantly, Muslims out of Europe …. and if Trump has his way, out of America too …..

Fidel gone, so who knows where Cuba will end up, in the coming months and years ???

Oh and just one quick mention of the case that has, somehow, found it’s way to being a mistrial … ?!?

…. that of, the shooting of Walter Scott by a certain, Officer Slager, as described in the piece, Open Season, which I posted recently …..

Looks like Officer Slagers’ case will be, yet another, to go on the list of cases against the police, that have left the victims family without any sense of justice, or respect for the fact, that, their loved one was essentially, gunned down in cold blood, by one charged with the duty to … ” Serve & Protect ” …

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

So many things going on …..

I figure that it’s time for me to explain and show, some of the places that I have been and will continue to …. Go …….

So, here are some of the places that ……..

Changes … of scenery, and much much more … written by Big Virge 22/5/2016

Yes Yes folks,

Wow, are these posts becoming more and more infrequent !!!

Well, all for good reason, the system makers and the people who, blindly fall in line, are having quite the time currently !

Trump makes it to become the Republican Nominee for the US Presidency, seemingly now, with the backing of a CERTAIN, David Cameron ….. Any surprises there ???

Well, maybe just a slight one, as his new London Mayor, is none other than Muslim, Sadiq Khan !!!!!

Well, David’s announcement of, let’s say, a level of support for Donald, should make for some, interesting confrontations, with the new London Mayor, who, if i’m not mistaken, should be deemed as quite the security threat, according to all the Islamophobia talkers, thus I guess, the Brexit Klans, sorry, Clans … !!!!!

So, are you one of them ?

Well, good luck with having a Muslim Mayor, this should all make for very interesting times, unless of course, he is a turncoat, which should have Isis, Isil & their buddies plotting some kind of let’s say, disturbance, due to his appointment.

NOT … that i’m suggesting they should do any such thing of course !!!!

I’m just speculating a lil’ bit, if we are to believe the medias’ representation of the Islamic Threat, to peoples safety, across the globe, but especially, in Europe and the US of A right ???

Something doesn’t quite seem to be adding up, but these days, i’m realising, it’s just me !

We’ve recently had some sad losses, well, losses, depending on your point of view. I didn’t get the chance to meet Tony Cozier, the cricket commentator and voice of much that has related to, Radio or TV Commentary, on West Indies cricket, for basically all of my 40 odd years, and then some !!!!!

The one thing I wasn’t aware of, was that he had played for the infamously, racist club of Wanderers, which, leaves me thinking that, the fact that he was white, one can only hope, was not the reason he essentially became the main voice of West Indies Cricket !

Only those who truly knew him, will be able to answer that one. I just hope my thoughts are wrong, as he always seemed to be a decent enough fellow, but hey, White and Bajan, generally, is not such a positive mix, anyway, moving on …….

The biggest loss of the last few though, has to be Prince, say what you like about him, lil’ freak, illuminati puppet, or, whatever you will, but what a musical talent !!!!!

He was as good a live performer as i’ve, EVER seen !!!!!

…. and i’ve seen my fair share !!!

…. and he was just a phenomenally gifted musician, just from the volume of instruments he could play, and the legendary stories of his levels of productivity, let alone creativity, that would seemingly have him working in the studio, having just gigged for a night.

My enduring memory will be from his set of O2 performances, and seeing this diminutive figure come on stage at the afterparty, in a HOODED, Yellow Suit, icon of much, from sexuality, to fashion and sonic arrangement.

A Genius of the music art form, who is already, and i’m sure will be, missed for many many years to come, RIP Sir …. for the work you put in while you were on this earth, you deserve it !!!

Moving on, I have now entered my 46th year of life on earth, which I do, in no small form, give thanks for, however, as said, so much is changing in this world of ours, and as I have said on numerous occasions before, I don’t see too much of it as being progressive, however, this is probably, just me.

Thankfully, my vibes have brought me to the Bajan’ Countryside, in a lovely remote location, essentially, getting me further and further away from people, not that i’m anti-social or anything, but, have become happier to indulge in listening to peoples bullchit’, less and less frequently, as time goes on, because there’s only so much a man’s brain can take, when it operates on planes of logic, thought and common sense, which is clearly, NOT SO COMMON in the majority, sadly !!!

Waking up to a view of the East Coast of Barbados, and a landscape of green, that surrounds, as well as horses, cats, dogs, goats, chickens & a peacock, who happens to be quite the noisy fellow, is indeed, paradise like !!!!!

Especially when, feeling the sea breeze flow through the verandah, where I now do much of my chilling and contemplating, is indeed a blessing that year 46 of my life is glad to have as it’s beginning !

Thus, much that was important to me, is becoming less so, due to the peaceful vibes I now have, as well as the decent people who have embraced having me in their space, which I am very grateful to them for !!!

They are indeed, a rare breed, who are hard to find on this island, but they do exist, and, when receiving such levels of respect and warmth, one can only let peoples’ issues pass you by …..

A very cool place to be, mentally and spiritually, not to mention, the fresh fish that the locals know how to prep, tasty oh yes … VERY TASTY !!!!!

At no time in my life have I ever felt at this much peace, a beautiful thing, which is a change I am happy to embrace, and shall attempt to keep, for as long as is now possible !!!!!

The city and it’s hustle and bustle, is something i’m happy to forego, to make the countryside my home ……

Change …. in this case, is proving so far, to be the catalyst for rest,
and development of more than my bank balance, or, my personal goals, but simply, an aid to retaining my sanity and therefore, my peace of mind.

Stay blessed y’all, and remember, peace of mind is indeed, HARD TO FIND !!!!!

…. but, when you do get some …..

My advice is … Hold onto it for as long as you can !!!!!

The Virge, out of here for now ………
