“Check” … A Poem written and performed by Big Virge

Well folks, peoples’ craziness continues, and Novak Djokovic is our recent prize winner, for showing that his sometimes, quite crazy on court behaviour, has finally exploded, to the point where he hit a ball after a point had ended, that apparently hit a line judge in her throat, because he was upset !?!

Check that temper young man, otherwise, no more slams for you son !!!

Neymar and a few of his footballing compadres at PSG, would seem to also need to learn to check their tempers, as tempers seemed to flair to, Red Card levels, in their second league match of the season, over there in France !

Now it seems that verbal warfare isn’t being checked either, as Cardi B and Candace Owens are getting into it over, Joe Biden support, but interestingly, the idea that people in Hollywood, or those in music who are black, who’ve made millions in America, should stop being hypocritical, due to America being the very same place, that has provided them with their money, and that maybe, members of the public, should stop listening to them….

Hmmm, an interesting, and maybe, valid point !

It also seems as though unity in Ethiopia, is being checked, in no small way, as Prime Minister Ably Ahmed, does not seem to be so popular with those in the Tigray region, who seem ready to militarise their position, to the point where the regional ruling TPLF party, are defying apparent federal governance, to have their own elections, so, much like Obama, before him, who also received a Nobel Peace Prize, war could quite conceivably, quickly be on the horizon, merely a year after Mr. Ahmed has received it ….

Tribalism in Africa, is still clearly to be checked, as it should of been some centuries ago !

So, onto this Corona Virus, and it’s movements, well who knows if it’s spread is being checked or not now !?!

Benjamin Netanyahu clearly isn’t of the opinion it is, so has made Israel the first country to re-impose a nationwide lockdown, so, the virus’s progress, doesn’t seem to have been checked so well there !

It’s also, definitely not being checked in India, where cases seems to be increasing rather quickly !!!

It also seems that some people just cannot check their need to see different shores, which is creating problem after problem, when it comes to which countries people can, or, cannot visit ???

It’s interesting that nobody is protesting at the selfish attitudes of those who are travelling to destinations, without even considering the dangers of apparently being in places where information about the level of virus infections, is not quite as clear cut, as travel operators and governments, might be suggesting one day, that they take a complete U-turn on, the very next !!!

It’s just incredible really, where peoples protestations seem to be focussed ?!?

Not wearing a mask, is apparently, incredibly selfish, but travelling to let’s say, questionable locations, to get a holiday, isn’t, in times like these ?

Huh …. ?!?

Finally, what of poor old Lionel Messi, one minute wanting out of Barcelona, due in no small part i’d imagine, to Bayern Munich’s 8-2 beat down, that left him looking for competition at the highest level elsewhere……. to …

Wait a minute …….

Errr……….

CHECK that Lionel, when your release contract, demands a 700 Million Euro pay off, due to a contractual clause !!!

Good luck with finding a club who can pay that now, or even, before the Corona situation !?!

There’s so much going on in this world right about now, that needs to be checked, that people are simply, refusing to do, like, continued, ignorant policing vibes, as well as highly volatile protesting, that is stretching worldwide !!!

So, I figure it’s a good time to drop this set of Big Virge Spoken Word Rhymes, that reflect on some of the things within my life, for which I now ……

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

Well, on the basis of much that is revealed in the documentary posted below ……

“Britains Forgotten Slave Owners” …..

It would seem fair to say, that there are and continue to be some…

EXTRAORDINARY … Double Standards, from a monetary perspective, ALONE ….

But, here are a few more, that are clearly, NOT, figments of black folks imagination, or, ” Chips on our Shoulders ” …..

“Yo, for my anger settle,
Man give me a treble !
Wait, i’ve got to mingle
So, give me a single
in fact, i’ll take a double
cos’ this may start trouble !”

All these … ” Double Standards ” …
are getting me angered …

From Lawrence to Walker …
to … Christopher Alder ,,,

it seems some … English People …
Can’t deal …. with … The Evil .. !!!
that … ” Lurks ‘ … in their house … !!!

when they get … ” Found Out ” … !!!!!!!

We blacks … should … ” Shut Mouths ” … ?!?
and … NOT … speak about …
The way we get treated …
in … ” Some ” … English Towns … !!!!!

or speak of our … ” LOSSES ” … !?!
because of … White Bosses …
who’ve got … EVERY RIGHT … !?!
to … Dismiss … our plight …
of fighting … for lives …

when police ….
SHINE THEIR LIGHTS … !!!!!

or keep us … “in the dark” … ?
About …. Monkey Chants …. !!!
while Black soldiers … DIE …

On … Police Station Floors … !!!

They’d rather …. ” Deny ” ….
how we’re … Treated like … WHORES … !!!
and … left on … ALL FOURS …
while THEY … have a laugh …
in stations and … Courts … !!!!!

The standards … ” They Have ” …
DON’T … Add up … like Math … !?!

They’d … ” Rather Not ” … Hear … !!!
about the …. ” Veneers ” …
Behind … “Cover Ups” …
that … EXPOSES STUFF …

About …
Just How … ” low ” …
” Their Standards ” … can go … !!!!!!

EXCUSES … Excuses …
and YES … MORE … EXCUSES … !!!?!!!

are what they … ” Provide ” …
to cover their … ” Looseness ” … !!!

“All people do wrong !”

is their NEW … ” Hot Song ” … !!!

All This … while … ” Trayvons’ ” …
are Lost … due to shots …
from … Zimmerman Bods’ … !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Of course we should Massa’ !
Let’s erase those chapters !”

See i’m down with … The Man …
….. ” Lilian Thuram ” ……

So …
Take the stance … THAT …

” Double Standards ” … Land …
in the laps of … Clans …
who stand next to … ” Racists ” …
in ………. Various Places ………. !!!!!!

But … WON’T …
Get on the … Faces …
of those who spread … HATRED … !!!!!!

I wonder … ” Sometimes ” … ?
whether they … ” Recognise ” …

Or ….
Take time to … THINK ….
About …… ANYTHING ……

Beyond ………………………………… Their Kin …. ?!!!?

It’s CLEAR Most ……… DON’T … !!!!!
and … Won’t … ” Rock The Boat ” …
when … “within” … ” Their Folk ” …

They hear … subtle jokes …
that … EXPOSE … Attitudes …
with … ” Racist Styled Views ” … !!!!!

How many … make … FEUDS ?
within … their own crews … ?

It seems there … Aren’t Many … !?!
who … TRULY … are … ” Ready ” …
to REALLY … say something …

They’d rather do … NOTHING … !!!!!

and be … YES … Complicit …
with those … Who Are … RACIST … !!!!!

but are … QUICK … to run lines
and wanna … Start Fights …
with blacks who … AREN’T SHY … !!!!!

to … Speak on … Their Crimes …
and … Bring them to … LIGHT … !!!!!

The question is …. WHY …. ???

Their standards seem … ” Doubled ” … !?!
when their feathers get … ” Ruffled ” … !!!!

It’s Clear … They get … ” TROUBLED ” … !!!
and just … WILL NOT BE … “humbled” …

I’ve said it before … !!!
I’ll say it again … !!!

It’s like Mos’ Def’ … said …

“When they do it well,
It’s seen as success !
When we do it well
It’s seen as suspect !”

But ….. ???
Who are … ” Suspect ” … ?!?
when their standards .. are … CHECKED … !?!

It’s time to … INSPECT …
and let ME … Cut The Deck … !!!

I ain’t from … Wu Tang … !!!
but … Know about … ” Klans ” …
and … IGNORANT Gangs … !!!
who STILL … ” Take The Stance ” …

That …

Immigrants cause ….
Their countrys’ … ” Downfall ” …

So Let’s … ” Double Check ” …
and get this … ” Correct ” …

When they … ” Move Around ” …
across …. Different Towns ….

On YES … Foreign Grounds …

Does their …. ” Migration ” …. ?
or ……………. IMMIGRATION …… !?!

Make for …. Better Nations …. ?????

when how they get … ” Stationed ” …
seems to bear ……. ” NO RELATION …… ?!?

to … Living in … SQUALOR … ?!?
and … Begging … for Dollars …
or … Begging for … ” Pounds ” … !?!

That’s … REALLY … NOT HOW …
They seem to ….. ” Get Down ” ….. !?!

Do They … FEAR POLICE … ?
when They .. walk the streets … ?
” Upon ” …. Foreign Shores …. ?

Or … Live like the … POOR … ?!?

Their standards … Stay … HIGH … !!!
wherever they ………. ” LIE ” ………..

Of course I meant … ” LAY ” … !!!

But in the …. U.K.
Immigrants … AREN’T OKAY … !!!
and should … YES ………………………………………………….. PLAY AWAY …….

UNLESS …. They will play …
in ways that …. Display ….

A wish to … “CONFORM” …

and NOT … Kick Up A Storm … !!!

when how they are treated …
is …. ” Racism Born ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

I … ” Double Up ” …
My Standards …

So that …
They stay … HIGH … !!!

and … WILL NOT … !!!
have … ” Handlers ” …
Decide …. How I ride …. !!!

and … DON’T KEEP ….
” Whoring Types ” …

Standing ……
By my … side … !!!

and DON’T … “hide behind lies” …
or ……. ” Ignorant Pride ” …….. !!!!!!!!

cos’ it’s now … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

” Some ” … FORGET … Their Manners …
and seem to be ….. ” Hampered ” …..

when it comes to them … SEEING …

How they … “HOLD” …

…… ” Double Standards ” ……

Ghostface speaks on Barbados & working with The Chef …..

FUKWITS … love to chat chit about places, they see, ” Holiday “, TV shows about, that barely touch the surface of how the people of these places can be, who are not on camera, being paid, in am nay cases, to represent the best of what the island has to offer ….

Of course, NOT, in every case, but, in far too many instances, in the case of Barbados ….

“Oh but you’re in paradise now, stop complaining !!!”

Well, here is a man who clearly is perceptive, intuitive, and has experienced the nonsensical black on black attitudes & fukry’, that Barbados, sadly, runs with, when it comes to Non-Bajan, black people, landing on these shores, who do not …

I repeat !

DO NOT …. !!!!!

live by some, Colonial, Willie Lynch type, SLAVE …. mentality ….

The island is a paradise in many ways … !!!

… but, those who claim to have loved it here, seem to be blissfully ignorant white folks, who pretend to have connected with the people, but, who secretly loved being treated like the black people around them, would do anything for them, just because they are white, or, of fairer skin.

They are not being REAL, about that, which lies right under their noses, a people with SERIOUS, internal issues, when it comes to how they treat, ” Their Own “, for want of a better phrase, and, an island where Apartheid type separation, is NOT, a thing of the past ….

Ghostface puts Barbados on blast ….
with this story from, the not so distant past …
