“Brutal” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay people, so, as a follow up to my last post ….

Here’s proof that people, in fact, sadly, mostly those claiming to be artists, are PUSSIES … !!!!!

YUP …. I said it ….

PUSSIES … !!!!!

They are normally quick to run for cover, when heads speak freely about the world and it’s woes, or better still, people and their willingness to be penned in like sheep !!!

It’s incredible how they, and obviously, those who claim to appreciate, freedom of expression and artistry, are quick to distance themselves from anything that is remotely, anti-establishment …..

or ….

Art that has, NOT BEEN DONE, for people to say that … “They Love It !”

or, even worse still …..

because it’ll get them a pay cheque ….

These are the same fuck-holes, who are quick to claim that they …

” Keep It Real ” … with their art ?

Hmmm …. What a CROCK !!!

Imma’ hit that, ” Keep It Real ” … subject, down the line, but, as said in my two previous posts …

If Donald Trump can wantonly, speak on things in such an unabashed fashion, and not have to deal with the ….

“Expression Police” … as it were …

…. who want to restrict, and deny exposure, to the type of artistry, that this kind of piece represents, one where frank and honest assessments are expressed, that can actually be validated, rather than debated, and then dismissed as some kind of conspiratorial nonsense …..

Then … SO CAN I … !!!!!

So, once again ….

Pussholes’ …..
should leave this alone … !!!!!!

The rest of you, well, I hope you pay close attention to what you hear, and pass this on to those who you know, can deal with talk that is REAL !!!!!

…. because ….

compared to Trump, Cameron & the rest of their ilk of Political Figureheads ….

These words are actually, contrary to the title,

FAaaaaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRR ……… from being …….

BRUTAL …….

“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

One.

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

Okay folks …..

It’s that time of the month for some, Big Virge, Poetic Stuff ….

I am a long way from home currently, but it seems that, after the Paris attacks, Gatwick Terror alerts, and more gun massacres in the US, that, reasonable thought processes are being forsaken for, ” Gung Ho’ type “, reactionary responses.

So, as The Pope has been doing his thing in Africa, and Trump doing has been doing his … i.e.

“Running His Gums” …. in the US …..

I’m wondering, where the logic and reason is …. in peoples rhetoric currently ???

Well, it’s time for some reason, Big Virge Styled, that defies all these extremist type attitudes, and I don’t mean, ISIS, ISIL or any other type of group who is deemed to be wreaking havoc across the globe right now …..

Those who know, KNOW, they are far from being the only terrorists out there, in this world of ours …..

I am currently in New Zealand, funnily enough, YET ANOTHER, British Colony, in a place called Queenstown, also like Barbados, to the locals, known as you guessed it …. Little England, due to the volume of Brits who now, live and work here, where, as a Zimbabwe born farmer told me….

“When they came here, the Brits were bloody stupid !!!”

…. when speaking about certain agricultural policies, that they rather foolishly employed, that when thought about, were quickly proven to be as stupid, as much that is being spouted currently, by them and their apparently, ” Special Friends “, across the water !?!

Well, having managed to gain a little Maori culture, in my first few days here, it only seems fitting that I should, this month, share a piece that shows how much respect I have, not only for the GREAT, All Black Rugby team and World Cup Winners for 2015, but also, a culture whose warrior spirit, deals in more than reactionary responses to war …..

Thus, here is a poem that touches on that, and much much … more … !!!

In a time where we are seeing people act in very, irrational ways ….

Take some time out to listen to some thoughts based on, as said ….

Sumthin’ more, than talk of ignorance, terror and war ……

” Lack ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 20/6/2006

Well folks, it’s that time again ….

and this month’s question, is one most like to avoid, but, truth be told, if you don’t look at yourself, you don’t really have much right to be casting stones at others ….

So my question is simple …..

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

Oh and…. before anyone starts running the ….

“Oh, he’s obviously got a problem with gays !”, type rhetoric….

Well, this piece was actually written on the 29/06/2005

A whole 10 Years ago !

My position was clear then, as it is now, and much like all the other groups who are spoken about, within this piece, if they want to be accepted and treated EQUALLY, like everyone else ….

Well, accept that everybody ISN’T, necessarily down with the Gay Movement ….

and that some of us are not just gonna fall in line with the ….

“Oh, You’ve Gotta show support for the gays”, vibes, that are currently riding …

VERY HIGH …..

Anyway, let’s get to the bigger issue of denial in peoples’ attitudes ….

As the poem states, it is a BIG F’ing Problem …. and if you are one who takes offence to things you hear in this, well, you would seem to have a cap to wear that has on it’s peak, in …

BIG BOLD LETTERS

D E N I A L …..

Get over yourselves, and face what you know to be true, not only about yourself, but, more importantly, the world around you …..
