“One of Those Days” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay so, the vaccine progression is now moving along in a manner, that would indicate that we will all be facing, THAT Day when, we’ll either be co-opted, forced or freely given vaccines, to prevent the spread of this Corona Disease, in the not too distant future !

These are indeed, some very strange days and times, where businesses are being downsized, as are people’s lives, in various ways.

So, lockdowns are being enforced, and then withdrawn, in England’s case, within a matter of weeks, for that, SPECIAL Day, being Christmas, which is supposed to be, one of those days where connection to loved ones, is all in the spirit of things !

However, advisement has already come, that suggests that elders should not be hugged or kissed by younger relatives, to ensure that if anyone happens to have the virus, they don’t endanger their relative, or as Professor Chris Whitty, England’s Chief Medical Officer has said….

“ If you want them to survive or be hugged again.”

Like WTF … ?!?

So, Christmas warrants the easing of lockdowns, because it’s Christmas, essentially …. even though, the tier system that has recently been imposed, will return, pretty much as soon 2021 begins… ?

Okay so, now the Corona Virus will happily take a break to let everyone do everything, except, be physically close to their families, even when inside the bubbles that have been specified as being okay to jump into, for that Special Day ?

Okay nuff’ said.

So, what of the disturbing end to MIchel Zercer’s day in Paris, last weekend, where due to his not wearing a mask, he was accosted, beaten and racially abused in his own music studio, for several minutes by four Parisian Policemen, who apparently upon hearing the word, “ Camera “, suddenly discontinued their brutal assault !

One of those days that I’m sure Mr. Zercer will find very difficult to forget !

Ethiopians are also in the midst of some difficult days, because unrest and dissension, over Abiy Ahmed’s ruling parties controls over Mekelle, in the Northern Tigray region, is causing international concern, because the TPLF are vowing to continue fighting army troops, who Ahmed claims have taken, full control.

Of course, Donald Trump is having a lot of days that aren’t so great now. as Joe Biden’s transition into power, would seem to be, at the very least, beginning to sink into The Don’s head, regardless of his continued attempts to suggest that he’s been cheated, and, unfairly treated. A sentiment that seems to be resonating in various places, over everything from racism, to economic pressures, and of course this Corona Virus Vaccine, which is being deemed as the thing that may make for better days, for a lot of people, due to them suddenly becoming available and ready to be rolled out for the masses !

Well, it seems it won’t be long now, before we see what this means, and whether these vaccines prove to be as reliable as they are being claimed to be ?

Finally, Mr. Maradona’s days of living are over, so, Argentina in particular has had, one of those days where much sadness and reflection, has dominated the minds of many there, and globally, so RIP Diego, thanks for the memories…..

Dave Prowse too, the figure inside the costume that brought us Darth Vader, has left us for the next realm, a sad day indeed, for many a Star Wars fan, because up until the recent appearance of Thanos’, on the Big Screen, there have been very few villains with such an imposing aura, and, on screen presence, so RIP Big Fella, you may not have spoken in the role, but your part in the Star Wars Universe, will forever be etched into Star Wars Fans memories…..

…. which leads me into this weeks spoken word offering, which outlines the memory of a day in the life of my times here in Barbados, which, contrary to its title, is not quite what it seems, as I poetically wrote about what it was like to be in Barbados, and have …..
