“On Point” … A Poem written and performed by Big Virge

So people, ‘it’s the season to be, LOCKED DOWN, apparently … SMH
Being jolly would seem to be a world of folly, for 2020 !!!

Anyway, my post this week, deals with the now, very popular phrase of being, “ On Point “, which sadly, little now seems to be, from people, to trade deals, to government policies, and the touchy subjects of mask wearing, and vaccines !

I have to quickly mention that people need to mind their manners, when it comes to this mask wearing thing, because, when so many are still refusing to wear them, rather than run your mouths, because you believe everything surrounding this virus. People need to recognise that many are complying out of politeness, and a degree of respect for others.

However, when a mask isn’t worn as you might choose to, don’t get it confused, you don’t have the right to demand anything.

You DON’T !!!

As said, just because you choose to adhere to every rule that governments issue, that they continue to break ! Everybody else doesn’t see things that way, and running your mouth may result in more than getting a person irate !

So I suggest that you think, or just walk away to a safer place, before you get into something that your mouth and mask, can’t keep you safe from !

Cheesus’, do we have some Sheople in this world, who clearly do not move in ways that define the phrase, on point !

Talking of which, this new strain, that mutates, is yet again, proof that this whole thing doesn’t seem to be being, handled particularly well, by Boris, Matt Hancock, and the ministers of the UK, now does it folks !?!

Borders being shut down, and the sudden appearance of, Tier 4 restrictions, which have cut off any chance of families enjoying Christmas, as they originally suggested would be the case, which is now leading to a seemingly, muted celebration of the arrival of 2021, that once again, hardly seems to indicate that things are on point, in how it’s all being managed.

Thus, this new upgrade, or Corona Remix, seems to have already reached South Africa, of all places … SMH …

Watch out for the dub plate version, which will likely be released in the New Year folks !

Yes I am being facetious, because this whole thing is becoming, more and more of a joke to me !

The lorry drivers in Dover, in the UK, are also being left to a rather inept handling of the effects of this travel ban, that is denying many the chance to be with their families, which is just crazy, and again is, far from being on point.

Let alone the chaos it’s causing with traffic being backed up, that’s causing gridlock for Dover locals, who are trying to run basic errands, and to see those they want to, before the lockdown holiday begins.

The most disturbing stories of the last few days though, relate to a certain, Detective Sergeant, Stephen Redgewell of the Metropolitan Police, who seems to have had, no concept of being on point, when it came to, maintaining appropriate behaviour towards colleagues, on both, sexual and, racial grounds, which has caused an Asian officer, to sue The Metropolitan Police, for sexual harassment and discrimination, due to allegedly receiving, HUNDREDS… of inappropriate messages, over a two year period !!!

Like WTF … ?!?

Conveniently, he retired in 2018, having allegedly had sex with a dominatrix at the HQ of The Met !

This has of course been, conveniently swept under the excuse of,

“ had he not resigned, he would of been fired “,

Well, so much for all this, “ Racism needs to go talk “,

…. that keeps coming out of the mouths of those, who seem to, constantly found to be, employing racists and bigots, from the police, to sports management, and government ?!?

All this talk of ZERO TOLERANCE, is clearly, NOT On Point, even remotely !

It’s incredible to keep hearing and reading about the lack of any substantiated evidence, that their rhetoric is anything but, cheap and worthless ! A word that can also be clearly applied to the incredible statistic, that 80,000 crimes were failed to be recorded by the Greater Manchester Police Force in, ONE YEAR !!!

No wonder Andy Burnham, the mayor of Manchester, was so insistent that the government should give him more money to manage the Covid Lockdown Restrictions imposed on Manchester !

He must have a lot of people to pay off !!!

Allegations of cover ups and neglect, that has lead to peoples deaths, have caused Burnham to publicly apologise for the failings, and the, horrifically poor service that the Greater Manchester Police, seem to have felt was acceptable, and yes you’ve guessed it, the Chief Constable, through this period, Ian Hopkins, resigned immediately upon the realisation that this report was about to expose the failings !

Huh, interesting, as he was due to retire in the Autumn of 2021 anyway !

The words, On Point, are clearly again, words that can’t even be remotely related to the dealings of Burnham, Hopkins, or seemingly, a very large proportion of the police in Greater Manchester !

Just unbelievable, if you’re one who places faith in policing, which leads me to the unbelievable reign, and apparent ending to President Trumps time in office !

He is suddenly, seemingly wanting to place a weighty increase to the debt levels of America, by vetoing the stimulus package for America’s unemployed, and demanding that it goes from 600 dollars a week, to giving 2000 dollars a week, being dished out to America’s jobless !

However, the more disturbing thing is the people he’s now pardoning, who seem to be everyone from, corrupt officials and people who lied to the FBI, under oath, to these Blackwater Guards, who appeared to take their military responsibilities, just a little too far, when KILLING Iraqi Civilians … !?!

I mean, seriously, are any of these so called, leaders and protectors of our, freedoms and rights, doing anything that even remotely resembles, this ideal of being, “ On Point “, because it sure doesn’t look like it to me ?

Thus, the only things that appear to be moving in such a manner, is the Brexit’ Trade Deal that, all of sudden, works for the EU and UK, and the roll out of all these Vaccines, even though Covid19, as said, is apparently, bringing out new remixes of itself, every few weeks, and is apparently, already touring overseas !!!

Just incredible folks, what a year 2020 has been, and it ain’t over yet !!!

Anyway, this little ditty of mine, reflects on my wish, through my rhymes and thoughts on life, to always be as close to, if not to always be, these two simple words, that clearly seem to be, beyond the majority of folks in today’s world ….

However, they are two words that I suggest that, as we move into the future, are those that people need to recognise as being good ones to follow, and to try to always be …

…. And the words are these….
