” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

Breezy but lovely, so, it’s time for my last musical post for 2017 from Virges’ World ….. Vol 1

Soon to be followed by Virges World ….. Vol 2

…..having giving birth to a number of cool tunes for the two Virges’ World albums ….. !!!!!

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….

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

All I will say is …..

The way people seem to be behaving these days, due to their shades, and varying …. ways …..

A lot of folks could probably do with, A LOT OF THIS, from themselves and certain, influential heads …..

The poem speaks on these things, in what it expresses …. and more …..

STOP THE VIOLENCE ….
Once …. and …. FOR ALL.

“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 …….

” 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 ……
