“So Now What’s Coming Next ?” … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/1/2021

Now Folks …
My Phone’s SMART Tech …
REJECTED My First Text … !!!

In A Way That Really …
Caused My Head To STRESS … !!!

So I Guess That It Was Meant …
For ME To Now Get VEX …

Just Like The Heads …
At Today’s’ PROTEST … !!!

That Seemed To Have Rednecks …
Rather VEXED And Quite UPSET … !?!

Because Their CURRENT President …
Has Now … GOT TO Accept …
… His LOSS To Joe Biden … !!!!

According To News Threads … !?!

So Should Now GO HOME …
And Leave The Whitehouse Zone … !!!

So Now … Just Like Them …
This Is My Second Attempt …
To Write This Poem …
That Wants To Assess …
What Will Now Come Next … ?!?

Which Is Similar I Guess …
To Their Wish To STILL REJECT …
Biden’s … Election SUCCESS … ?!?

And Have Votes Counted AGAIN …
In Ways Where They Can Inspect …
And Openly … Double Check … !!!

Like Twenty Fifth Amendments …
To REMOVE This President … ?!?
Because Biden Has WON …
And Trumped Don’s Minions …

Who’ve Now Rioted Like PUNKS …
And Left The Country STUNNED … !!!

But … Is That What’s Happened …
Or Is This Some Kind of Stunt …
Or One HELL of A … Diversion … ?!?

To CONFIRM The Election Result …
And Make Certain That Mr. Biden …

… Is America’s President …
In … Twenty Twenty One … ?!?

Now It’s Just A Simple Question …
So Is NOT An … Accusation … !!!

But For Those On The Hill …
To NOT Take Time To Chill …
And Be Passing Judgements …
On … This Last Election …

… SO SOON AFTER …
… Protest Marchers …

Seems A Bit HEARTLESS …

So What’s Coming Next … ?!?

Because Now Congress …
Is … Once Again …
Now Democrat Lead …

Trump’s Republican Friends …
Have Quickly Turned …
Against Their President …… !?!

Like The Kind of Worms …
Who’ve Shifted Their Faith …
To Be Willing To Shape …
Their Political Claims …
To … DEMOCRAT Veins … ?!?

In A … Capitol SHAKE …
That Has Caused A QUAKE …
That’s Been FAR From Great … !!!

So … WHO Was It Today …
Who Chose To MISBEHAVE … ?!?

Was It … BLACKS … ???
Maybe Some In Blackface …
Who Are Those In Gangs …
With … Racist Ways … !?!

Or Was It Asians …
Out There RAGING … ?!?

NOPE … Don’t Think So …
Hold On … I KNOW … !!!

Must of Been The CHINESE …
Causing … YOB Like Scenes …

Actually … It Was WHITES …
Who Were Causing Fights …
And The Loss of Life … !!!

That’s RIGHT The Same Types …
Who CLAIM To Be CIVILISED … ?

Now It’s The SECOND Time …
I’ve Tried To Write These Rhymes …
So Those Last Lines …
Are Worth Writing TWICE … ?!?

So … WHO Was It Today …
Who Chose To MISBEHAVE … ?!?

Was It … BLACKS … ???
Maybe Some In Blackface …
Who Are Those In Gangs …
With … Racist Ways … !!!

Or Was It Asians …
Out There RAGING … ?!?

NOPE … Don’t Think So …
Hold On … I Know … !!!

Must of Been The CHINESE …
Causing YOB Like Scenes …

Actually … It Was WHITES …
Who Were Causing Fights …
And The Loss of Life …

That’s Right The Same Types …
Who Claim To Be CIVILISED … ?

Because Had It Been Blacks …
Would They Have Got To Smash …
The HILL … Like That … ?!?

All Their Talk About GOD …
Is Clearly … WAY OFF …
When They Behave Like WILD Dogs … !!!

Now That’s A Line …
Just For Those White TRASH …
Who Are QUICK To CRITICISE …
When Blacks Protest And Act … !?!

Against The VERY SAME THINGS …
Like How Judgements Are RIGGED …
When It Comes To Killings …
That Police Are QUICK To Make … !!!

But SOMEHOW Heads Today …
Who Caused The Hill To Quake …
Were Just … USHERED Away …

So Congressman Could Stake …
A Claim For Biden’s Way …
To Be Made Clear RIGHT AWAY …
And With NO MORE DELAY … !!!

As I Earlier Said In This Poem …
Twenty Fifth Amendments …
Are What They Now Suggest …
As Being What’s BEST …
To Now Ensure Progress …

Because Now That The Senate …
Is …… Democrat Lead ……

There Should Be Less Heads Against …
What Joe Biden Presents …
As Policies Well Meant …
In His Term As President … !!!

There’s Much That Now Suggests …
That This Protest Represents …

A Shift Back To Power …
For The … Establishment … !!!

And VACCINE Trends …
To Stem Corona Deaths …

An Agenda Being Fed …
By Global Governments … !!!

So Folks Shouldn’t Forget …
That … Diversions Are Meant …

To … Keep Heads BLINDED … !!!
To What’s Coming Next …
From Political Heads …

Like … Republican Men …
And Women Who STRESSED …
That They Would Never Turn …
AGAINST Their OWN President …
Who’ve Turned Like Worms …
With DISTURBING QUICKNESS …
To Now Show Allegiance …
To Their Democratic Friends … ?!?

So This Poem Will End …
With A Question That Suggests …

That … Hypocrisy And Lies …
Are NOT Beyond These Guys …
Who’ll Decide And Now Preside …
Over What’s Best For Our Lives …

So ….
DON’T You Be Surprised …
If Protests Start To RISE …
In Countries Now Worldwide …
Over MORE Than Loss of Lives … !!!

There’s A Lot That ISN’T Right …
Just Like Today’s Protest …
That’s Left Some People DEAD … !!!

It’s EASY To Sit …
And Claim Ignorance …

But I Suggest That Instead …
You Now USE Your HEADS …

To Ask …

“So Now Whats Coming Next ?“

“Illusions” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, first things first ….

The Don gets off !

No impeachment, so, once again it’s, off to the Whitehouse races, for one of the most, polarising leaders of modern history.

Well, as per previous posts, i’m not surprised, due to the fact that, in my view, it’s an illusion to believe that any part of the legal system is truly what it claims to be.

So, this leads me to the rise in right wing movements in Europe, and clearly beyond, in terms of Trumps America !!!

Immigration restrictions increased to limit, Nigerian, Eritrean, Sudanese and Tanzanian Nationals from entering America.

Thus, it’s no surprise that parties like the AfD in Germany, Vox in Spain, and The League in Italy, are making strides towards increasing their followings !

The illusion of separation between parties, has also been exposed in recent years, especially with these, so called liberals.

So, it’s again, no surprise to find that, this week in Germany, Thomas Kemmerich, an apparently Liberal politician, has been found to be benefitting from alliances with right wing groups to gain a share of power, which is no different to the recent coalition between the Liberals and Conservatives in the UK, in recent times, and so on !

So, quickly over to South Africa, to the disturbing news of illegal minors being killed and left in the street, which isn’t so uncommon, as the reports suggest that 60 die EVERY DAY in South Africa, so it’s a big illusion that the new, Post Apartheid South Africa, is really, that much better than the old !

We’re in a time where Democratic Politicians, who apparently, can claim to be the, middle of the road thinkers, are no longer approved of, by their die hard followers, from Corbyn in the UK, to the Democrats in America.

So, there are quite a few illusions in society that are being exposed for what they truly are, like the Phillip Schofield confession to actually being gay, even though building the facade of being a family man with a wife and children, over many years, which just goes to show that, living a lie, isn’t alien to famous people, and the dangerous part of such deceptions, is that when it comes to legal proceedings that involve, royalty, or these incredibly wealthy guys, there are numerous falsehoods and illusions that surround them ….

So, this weeks piece looks into some of these …..

” My View ” Produced by Chris Peden

So guys, quite the start we’re having to this 12 month cycle !

The Iran US deal, well hey, it’s just like George Carlin said, there’s gonna be some dick swinging this year, by leaders who are immediately on the charge, as far as making movements, that are disturbing societal peace, if there’s ever been such a thing, so, i’ll just leave them to their warring.

This rapist story about the guy in Manchester, who was seemingly, freely drugging, raping and filming men, on some HUNDRED PLUS occasions !!!!!

Yeah that was 100 PLUS … !!!
In fact, it appears to be almost 200 … !?!

Yup … TWO HUNDRED …

INSANE, and incredible that it took SO LONG, to find out about this member of the LGBT community, let’s not forget, getting on like rape was food ?!?

Sick INDEED, i’ve only been to Manchester a couple of times in my life, and now it’s clear that there was good reason !

Talking of good reason, I have to mention Barbara Pinkney, the 70 year old black woman, from Bradenton, Florida, who was tasered THREE TIMES, when police claimed that they were looking for her grandson, who they said was there at the time, and due to Florida State Law, they required no warrant to enter.

Well, upon her refusal, it all kicked off, and officer, sorry, Deputy Jason Riley is suggesting that, although the young man was not found at the property, that this was because of his grandmothers actions.

Just CRAZY, and she possibly faces a SIX Year sentence, if convicted of charges levelled at her, this all on the 30th of December !!!

Just WHOA … !!!!!

So, this leads me onto further stories from the UK, where MI5 have been given, ” Carte Blanche “, regarding their agent and informants ability to, and I quote ….

Commit, ” MURDER, TORTURE, KIDNAP and other SERIOUS CRIMES “, in defence of national security !!!

PLEASE Take Note of what you are reading, especially when read in direction connection to the story of the woman, being tasered in her own home in America.

The view of the powers that be, seems to be very DEFINITIVELY, giving unrestricted powers, that are based on ambiguous policies, that could be interpreted whichever way a good lawyer would, to absolve the authorities and their agents, of any blame in contentious situations …. ?!?

DANGEROUS times folks, I kid you NOT !!!

So, my final view of recent news took me to an interesting stat, regarding the number of youth exclusions from schools in England in 2019, due to racism, which apparently is up 40 per cent in the last decade, yes FOURTY … !!!

Some of these are instances with children as young as eight years old !!!

The suggestion is that it’s not across the whole country, however, this is still another worrying statistic, in a time where the leadership of the country, seems to be crusading for sovereignty and a nationalist agenda, that could be deemed as fuelling racist attitudes.

However, to hear about it rising to the point where children are having to be excluded because of it in ……

2020 ….

It’s not the 1800’s now is it …..

Things change but remain the same, so, on that note, here’s the opening track from the soon to be released ….

ON THE VIRGE album folks …..

Nothing Samey about this, it’s an excursion that takes in views of much of the modern world, and our interactions within it, so take a listen, cos’ this is just the beginning ……..

Stay SAFE out there people !!!

As Ava has shown, we get this a little too much ! ” When They See Us ” …

So folks, as previously stated, I’ve been feasting my eyes on some incredible pieces of visual art, that have reflected some very disturbing truths, about the issues that black people face in the United States, care of Ava Duvernay, Jay Z and, of all people, Harvey Weinstein !

However, in the case of the story told, that of Kalief Browder, RIP.

This is visual art, that takes you into a life & death story, that is done tastefully, and respectfully, but in a brutally honest way, so, say & think what you like about Jay & Harvey, in this instance, one has to credit them with taking people into a world, too often dismissed as non-existent, by those whose privilege, allows them to be, so quick to question the injustices that the system they embrace and benefit from, dishes out to the not so privileged.

Much like the critics of these films, apparent ….

“ Anti-White Agenda “ …..

Like SERIOUSLY … !?!

DENIAL is also …

One HELLUVA’ Drug,
For … CERTAIN FOLKS … SMH !!!

However, the movies, “ 13th “, about the US Prison & Judicial System, and the much talked about, “ When They See Us “, are outstanding pieces of real life stories, put to film.

Accurate, for the most part, from what is shown, and, wonderfully shot and acted, by the main cast.

It’s engaging, disturbing and, for many, a very hard watch, but, one that EVERYBODY, regardless of race, gender or status….

NEEDS TO WATCH, in my opinion, because as said, we darker folks and marginalised communities, have had this stuff twisted and misrepresented, for long enough !!!

It’s NOT Some ….

Chip on our shoulders,
Figment of our imagination, Bullpish’ … !!!!!

We ARE Demonised !
We ARE Vilified !
We ARE Hated !
We ARE Mistreated !
We Are WRONGLY Imprisoned !

And Then ….
After All This,

If we manage to survive,
We ARE then … Left to DIE !!!!

Yet, Even With All This …..

We’re still able to somehow find, the strength, resolve & determination, to find ways, and individuals, who are willing to face the harsh realities of our existence, and then, present them to the world, regardless of all the obstacles placed in front of them …..

I’ll leave it at that, because this all leads to the piece i’m sharing, as a result of watching these films …

Written long before seeing these movies, this piece is a very serious reflection on what, dark skin undoubtedly, does to a lot of people, upon first sight, before they even take the time to delve into what may lie beneath …..

So, as apt a title as …

“When They See Us “ … is …

The title of my piece, is as obscure as it is appropriate, for the, never ending trials that go ….

WAY BEYOND ….

The name calling, and Truly IGNORANT levels of hatred !!!

These are the issues that are not so easily confronted, and overcome !

Systemic, Institutional Racism, via policies, laws, and those enforcing those laws, that, as the movies and this piece, will explain …..

SADLY ….

STILL involve people of colour, YES BLACK PEOPLE, from prison guards, to judges, to district attorneys, and, dare I say it, those in hierarchies, way above these puppets, who are truly, poor excuses for people !!!!

Be you white or black, or somewhere in between, I make NO APOLOGIES, for any offence caused by what you have read or hear, if you choose to ….

Because …..

Regardless of our …

“ Apparent Progress “ …..

The TRUTH is CLEAR …..

….. When you choose to wipe the sleep from your eyes, and state of mind …..

We darker skinned folks are STILL..

The VICTIMS of …… SUBSTANCE ABUSE …….

In A Week of Comebacks … written by Big Virge 18/4/2019

Yes Yes Folks, well, it’s been a few, but i’ve been busy doing my do, prepping a few jewels to now start sharing with you !

And I DO MEAN BUSY … !!!

And …..

This has a brought about a rather impressive level of creativity, from some of the older heads I have connected with, so, contrary to my own belief, all things being equal, there will be a couple of comeback tracks from Big Virge, which will be bringing me back to my TRUE Musical Preferences, of Soulful Music, with the odd snap of Boom Bap Hip Hop, and some other liks’ here and there, so, DON’T SLEEP, there is a LOT MORE music to come from Big Virge !

So, this connects me to the rather incredible comebacks of Tottenham, for one, Tut Tut Pep’, just make sure you continue to make those Mis-Steps, as it would be the comeback of all comebacks, for Liverpool to get to the place that has proven to be beyond them for far too long !

TOP SPOT in the Premiership Title Race, and they do look like a team, that, dare I say it, barring injuries or anything crazy happening, are a team worthy of completing what has been a fairly smooth season thus far, that has shown them to be resilient, and able to win the games that before, were literally proving to be the Banana Skins, denying them glory.

We shall soon see ………………..

Finally then, and by no means least, is the comeback of all, this past Sunday, when a certain, Eldrick ” TIGER ” Woods, returned to the Major Winners Golf Circle, with a literal, MASTERS’ Display, to ward off the young pups, who, for a while may have felt as if the game was theirs to take over.

Well fellas, THINK AGAIN … !!!

I have been, like many others, critical of Mr. Woods off course shenanigans, however, when it comes to his skills with clubs in hand, I could not have been more upset at the prospect of him never winning a major again, so, box ticked, props to ya Tiger … !!!

It was a truly, astonishing achievement, and may you go on and sneak past Mr. Nicklaus to become the indisputable, Greatest Golfer of All Time !!!!!

So, what do I return with … ???

Well, nothing quite as astounding as Tiger’s comeback, however, talking of astounding things, it would be remiss of me to not speak on Brexit’, and the crazy mess that Britain is proving itself to be becoming ….

Deadline Missed, Extensions and Cross Party Talks are supposed to do what exactly, make all this seem worthwhile ?

Well, Good Ol’ Theresa is soldiering on, I dunno bout comeback, but, there’s been a whole lot of Backtracking and Backstabbing going on, so it’s time for me to take a few pot shots at another issue that seems to have conveniently, stopped being so regularly spoken about, that being, the Grenfell Fire, and the farcical leadership, that no-one seems to be able to get rid off, like a bad case of well, something that ….

You REALLY Could Do WITHOUT … !!!

So folks, here we go, a little poetic flow from Big Virge, for the week, with MUCH More to come ….

BELIEVE ME … !!!!!

But for now, i’ll leave you with some Big Virge ….

“Don’t Get Carried Away !” … A Poem written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks,

All the best for the coming 12 month cycle !

It certainly looks like it could be a rough one, especially with, what increasing looks like a Hard Brexit, or, a NO Deal Brexit, coming the worlds way !

I think the Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe, has hit the nail on the head this week, when saying that the either, or scenarios, are not good looks for the rest of us !

Crazy price hikes, to varying degrees, if trade embargoes become a bigger issue than they already look like becoming !

Also, if the free movement of people is stifled, due to ridiculous attitudes towards sovereignty, and, border controls, then what happens ????

Well, apart from the obvious rise in nationalism, and right wing thinking, how does that translate into how services are run, and how the general governance of the country shifts, because it would clearly have to …..

It seems pretty clear now, that whatever governance comes, it’s gonna get testy, and cause further problems, when government policy could have resolved this a long time ago, by being stricter with regard to immigration laws, and I don’t mean the Windrush’ type of thinking and basically, racist policies !

I mean the employment of a system that meant that the actual Government Policy on it, made it clear, and more importantly, unable for THEM to make these laws, in order for THEM to benefit from cheap labour, that works well for their own purposes, ministers who want cleaners, nannies, gardeners, etcetera ….. Who would essentially be their, ” Modern Slaves ” !

Meanwhile, placing increased stress on those whose livelihoods, subsequently become pressured, due to the sheer volume of people trying to, not only, sneak into the country, but to then, also get work, which in turn, creates angst and the type of attitudes that lead to the result of the referendum on staying in Europe in the first place !!!

It’s such a mess, that it’s become, as some politicians are now saying, a national embarrassment !!!

Meantime, MP’s across parties are shouting about Theresa Mays’ lack of good judgement, and an inability to recognise that she cannot deliver what the people want, as if the rest of them could … when a 52/48 split was the result ???

Can’t please all the people, ALL The Time right ???

… which leads me to my first piece of the year, because it’s pretty clear to anyone looking on now, that the British Political System is BROKEN, and that, much like America, it now finds itself being scrutinised, and criticised, rather too frequently now, by it’s voters, because they neither have faith in the leadership, or the opposition, as per the impasse and shutdown of Americas’ Government over, ” THE WALL “, and No i’m NOT talking about the Pink Floyd Tune !!!!

So, whilst Theresa takes liks’ from basically, ALL SIDES currently !!!

Jeremy Corbyn is making, NO CONFIDENCE calls, and all sorts, to apparently get a general election ASAP !

However, one has to wonder if he did gain power, how that would play out in a world where Britains’, apparently, ONLY … ” Special Relationship “, is with America !!!

So, how’d y’all think Mr. Corbyn and The Trumpster’ would get along eh, and what THAT would mean for both economies and national relations …. ???

I don’t think it would be pretty, so, I wrote this piece a while ago, after local election results had people all stoked about what Jeremy could bring to the political table of fables in the United Kingdom …..

… and I have to say that a lot of people got, CARRIED AWAY, when perhaps they should of been more prudent ….

So, this month’s reflection of the current, Political Debacle that is currently running Britain, is simply called ….

DON’T Get Carried Away … !!!!!

and Those are SERIOUS Words relating to the SERIOUS Times that I believe 2K19 will provide …..

Take time and use your minds folks, because this Brexit’ thing really ISN’T a joke, and the effects of whatever happens will most definitely have effects across the globe !!!

“Sick” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Peoples’ ….

So what’s cracking’ …

Well, Serena’s cool, at the recent US Open Final, and what a furore this has created, as well as some rather offensive artistic offerings, in Australia !!!

Surprised, NO …

Sickened, well a little, these days it takes a lot to actually sicken me.

I recently saw Sicario 2, and without spoiling it for those yet to see it, expect some visual sickness, reflective of the issues surrounding control, and movements around the Mexico / US Border.

So much stuff going on that could sicken stomachs, that it’s amazing to see that people just carry on, without too much thought about the sick things that are happening in this world of ours.

So, rather than select a thousand instances, the last couple of things i’ll touch on are the story of a 12 year old who went into his school in Iowa, intent on shooting a teacher, IN THE FACE, no less !!! Only to find that the gun’s safety was still on !!!!!

THAT …. in Iowa …. !!!!

…. while, in the UK, Celebrity Big Brother House, a Certain, Roxanne Pallett, pulled some, sick idea of an attempt to define male harassment, when basically, fully embellishing what was a simple moment of well, ” Playfulness “, from one of her male housemates, only for it to blow up in her face, because in this instance, everything was captured for the world to see.

#MeToo eh girls … ???

Well, as Ms. Pallett has found out, you better be telling THE TRUTH about Male Abuse !

NOT ….

Your Version of events, as this incident has shown all of us who have seen the recent flood of accusations of male abuse, unsurprisingly, come from the whole Hollywood fraternity, from essentially nowhere, to not necessarily jump to every accusers defence, quite as speedily as many have been doing !!!

My point being, that with such a SERIOUS Thing as physical abuses of women being essentially ABUSED, by this lil’ … ” Actress ” … just goes to show that the sickness of abuse isn’t as straightforward as that of the abuser, immediately being labelled as being a nasty piece of work !

Sometimes, those claiming these, same abuses, are even worse, because lying about something that affects so many women, who consistently say that it’s an INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT thing to bring to peoples attention, is indeed pretty sick in my opinion !!!

As said, the world is filled with much worse things, but essentially, we live in a pretty sick period of human existence !!!

and sometimes, just sometimes, that sickness comes out in artists vision of the world that we live in …

So, with no further ado, written a while ago, and i’m not sure whether I feel any better or worse about the state of things, but, know that these words will always sicken, because they will always reflect some part of the world we live in.

“The Company You Keep” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People,

So, World Cup fever is upon us, The Russkies’, have the chance to host, and I wonder what kind of hosts Vlad’ and his men will be eh ….

Time will tell, but it’s a time you are going to need be VERY WISE, in the company you keep, methinks !!!

Like say, Tommy Robinson … ???

Who seems to have caused quite the stir !!!

Obviously a man who holds very strong views regarding immigrants and their behaviour, but maybe he should check his company and more importantly, what they have become reputed for, hateful speech and criminal deeds, and yet some white folks are INCENSED, that he should be judged so harshly, or at all, considering the way the immigrant paedophiles have behaved.

Hmmmm, pot calling kettle at all, anyways, moving on, what can one say about this week, Donald and Kim, finally together, to show the world the love they have for each other and a De-Nuclearised World … !!!!!

Phew, dunno bout you, but I was getting worried there for a minute …

…………… and if you believe that, then you probably believe that something meaningful was achieved between these two leaders, who were basically goading each other into some kind of instigation of war, not so long ago, if i’m not mistaken … ?!!!?

Ho’ Hum ….
Well, President Trump really is something !

Whatever you feel about him, he certainly does switch things up, on the REGULAR … !!!

Can’t finish this post without saying congrats to the Warriors !!!!!

4-0 …. Brooms were being brought out quite early …. LOL ….

So, it would seem that Lebron’ might just be removing himself from his current company of teammates, I wonder if he’s thinking about going to Golden State …… LOL ……. ???

Anyway folks enjoy the World Cup, if you’re gonna be following, but this piece is a SERIOUS One, on the perils of keeping bad company …..

Stuff to think on in these dangerous times ……

Peace and Guidance

The Virge …..
and, Come On Brazil, get with the programme this time !!!!!!!

” Pretenders ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, quite the month it’s been people ….

All kinds of industry awards for film and music, pretenders to thrones being disappointed, whilst other pretenders to thrones, getting their props, from their peers.

In Hollywood, it’s such a farcically, perverted place, that it’s hard to truly believe that awards are given to individuals, solely based upon the quality of their, respective works, or merely because they sucked the right persons whatever, these days … !!!!!

Politically, well it seems that the Brits’ have got their noses out of joint over, alleged, covert, Russian Misbehaviour, on British Soil … ???

Now, this in turn, has garnered support from a lot of nations apparently … ???

…. and of course, the US, via it’s President, has let Vladimir, and his foreign diplomats know, that they apparently are no longer welcome, where they once were.

Also, the North Korea situation has been hitting headlines, as it appears that recent exchanges between America and North Korea, that were quite tempestuous, were no more than a lot of hot air, as, not only has Kim Jong Un, met with the Chinese Premier, President Xi Jinping, but apparently, he’s now cool with The Trumpster’, and other leaders, who seem to rather quickly be joining the queue to talk with a man who, barely months ago, was being labelled as a dangerous, out of control, tyrannical leader ….. ???

Something isn’t quite adding up people ….. ???

As comedian, George Carlin would i’m sure of suggested, the viagra seems to have worn off, and dick swinging has stopped for a while at least, so that the limp dick leaders of this world, can prove that, ” Pretense “, is indeed, along with those little pills, their greatest ally.

Also, the word is that, Donald will never get to build his wall, to keep the Mexicans out, as he so vehemently claimed he would do, on his way to the Whitehouse !

(which, as a sidetone, quickly reminds me, is Guantanamo still open ???)

Okay back to Americas’ current big shot caller ….

It also seems that he won’t get to bed, a certain, Stormy Daniels, ever again, as their relations have become somewhat strained now !

LMFAOL ….. !!!!!!

…. and of course, there’s been the customary firing of members of Donalds’, US Administration, continues to baffle and bemuse the people who keep believing that these people, that he chooses, are actually supportive of the somewhat beleaguered President.

Seems like a great many PRETENDERS, are out there, which finally leads me to the admission by David Warner, Cameron Bancroft & The Australian Cricket Captain NO LESS, Steve Smith, that the pretence of them being decent, honest, fair cricketers, has been nothing more than a rather LARGE VENEER, that also has led to their, poor old coach, Darren Lehmans’ sudden resignation, after apparently being backed by the Australian Cricket Board …… just days before ….. ???

The same Darren Lehmann who had to apologise for using racist language with regard to Sri Lankan opposition, not so many years ago, who was also quick to join Yorkshire, a county who were seemingly pressured into reversing their policy of basically, not having anybody from outside of Yorkshire, be part of their team, especially if they had a bit too much colour …. !!!!!

You had to be of Tendulkar, or Richie Richardson Levels, to have even have had a chance back in those days, let’s not forget !!!!!

Hmmmm, nice blokes these lot and it sounds like there are a great many pretenders in Australia, maybe not just confined to the upper echelons of Aussie Cricket !!!!!!

It’s so laughable that it’s seriousness may be being dismissed, as nothing more than a blot on the landscape of Australian Sportsmanship,

It’s only Ball Tampering after all, so what, they just got caught for a change … !!!!!

However, one should not dismiss the level of vitriol aimed at anyone who wasn’t whiter than the whitest cricket ball, if they were accused of cheating, without any admission of guilt, previously.

The South Africans can hardly get too upset, as Hansie Cronjes name, has to be quickly brought up, when it comes to deceitful actions surrounding cricket, in the past.

In a world seemingly filled with so many liars, cheats and thieves, this month’s piece reflects on this pastime that seems to be so popular amongst so many bods’ on this planet of ours, including just one name i’ll mention from the poem, a certain Ryan Lochte, whose behaviour in Brazil not so long ago, with other US Olympic swimmers, should serve as a very important reminder of how white pretenders get treated in comparison to us darker folks, when we are foolish enough to get caught doing things that we perhaps, shouldn’t ……

So, as much a warning as an assessment of the Pretenders we all have to face at various point in our lives ….

Check it out ……..

and remember folks, HONESTY, is the best policy, however,

ONLY BEFORE, you decide not to be !!!!!

NOT ….. The other way round !!!!!

” Subject Matter ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks …..

Here we are in 2018 …. !!!!!

and this is how it starts …..

Government Shutdown in President Trump’s … GREAT AMERICA …

Remember the mans’ slogan people … !!!!!

Racial slurs of a quite extreme nature regarding a certain, Meghan Markle from the partner, Uh Hmmm …… of UKIP’s current leader, Henry Bolton.

Now this is the woman he left his wife, Tatiana Smurova, a good ol’ British name, for……

Some topless model, Jo Marney, who probably should reserve her commentary on people, as she is hardly, the hottest white chick that ever walked the earth.

It’s incredible how they seem so deluded about their, white whatever, and by ” They ” ……

YES i’m including, President Trump, who clearly had, or maybe, has no issue with sleeping with Porn Pro’s, like Stormy Daniels no less, with her Big Fake Titties, and, flat old butt ….

Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a damn site better than Boltons bit on the side, but, the idea that these people can speak in such derogatory ways about foreign people and their nations, in the case of Trump, and just about any immigrants, EXCEPT THEMSELVES, in the case of the UKIP faithful, who, like Mr. Trump, vehemently denies any form of racist attitude ….. ?!?!?

Hmmmm … well, let’s move on, and of course, as a new year begins, money matters become a hot topic, although, right about now, not so many appear to be flossing quite like they used to.

Barbados seems reluctant in an election year, to resolve a DISGUSTING, Sewage issue on it’s South Coast, which has apparently drawn attention from British, Canadian and US Tourist Boards, who are advising tourists that it’s not quite so much of a Caribbean Island Paradise getaway, right now !

So, moving on, we have an abundance of Gay / Whatever issues, from poor old Ginuwine’ being accused of being Trans-Phobic ….

WHATEVER The Fuck that means …. !!?!!

I guess i’m Trans phobic too ….

Maybe of being Trans-Warped into a world where people who are straight are vilified, for merely expressing a preference to stick to what they like, rather than jump on the LGBT Train, to make the poor little whatevers’, feel comfortable.

This leads me to Mr. Chappelle’s, ” Equanimity “, stand up show, which drew some attention for his LGBT routine, rather than his Emmett Till, race / immigration segment, which was not only a very serious reminder of the issues of black people, in America and across the globe, but also a very clever piece of stand-up comedy !

Now I def’ have my issues with much of Daves’ past material, however, one thing that can’t be denied is his comedy genius, when directed appropriately, but as he would probably say,

“Hey, i’m just f’ing around, and why the fuck are people so sensitive ?”

Indeed ……

As he relates stories of his varying issues with audience members, at his live shows, regarding everything from inter-racial relationships, to the whole taboo subject of well, not falling in line with the pink parade, it does seem increasingly ridiculous, the levels of importance being placed on a recently formed movement, whilst the struggles of black folks, are still demeaned, and in fact, ridiculed now, as some form of satiric attempt to wake racists up.

Hmmm …..

YEAH ALRIGHT …..

…. and this leads me to my viewing of Dear White People, the series, written by Justin Simien who has affirmed that the main character, who is a nerdy journo wannabee’, who happens to have his sexuality issues. Issues which are resolved by him affirming that he’s into men, underpinning the issue of racism on college campuses, especially those that have been quite open about having, black face parties of recent.

Well, I have to say, perhaps a little less, freaky, sexual stuff, and more grit regarding the race issue, would have been nice to see, especially in Trumps America !

Instead, what we get is an abundance of quite, crass humour, about a subject that, in this day and age of racist outbursts, from leaders, actors, sports people ….. etcetera etcetera, this Netflix show could of been more than some attempt to give white folks something, to dismiss as being, light-hearted fodder for them to be able to say, they see the problems we face and get it now ….

Something that, I very much doubt that they’ll get from the show if they got past the first couple of episodes, which quickly shift from race to sexuality, and back again, within a 30 minute show, attempting to cover college life.

Suffice to say, much like Django before it, it just shows me how differently black folks from America, and those from places like Barbados, now think.

It’s quite worrying, to say the least, when it comes to what’s important, regarding matters of racism, and our part in the whole allowance of it, in todays world.

Hiding behind comedy and media, is not what the debate needs, it needs to get REAL, and stop diluting the discussion, by placing it alongside Trans-whatev… issues, as if, as Chappelle puts it, they are the Olympic Champs of suffering & oppression, when it’s quite clear the level of power they possess, and have had for a considerable time, even if they were behind closet doors, wielding it.

This leads me to Molly’s Game, Chastain and Idris, going at it, to represent the trials and tribulations of skier, Molly Bloom, who, essentially ran the biggest, underground poker games of recent times, that had the likes of Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, amongst it’s participants, alongside Russian Mafia and some of the richest men in the world, as she states in an interview with Ellen, one of whom lost 100 Mill one night, and came back and paid his debt the next day !!!!!

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY ….. !!!!!!

Elba and Chastain are EXCELLENT, in my humble opinion, even though Idris’s character is fictional, their scenes together, are something to behold.

Amazingly, Bloom’s story seems to stick to the subject, rather than throw in random subject matter, to forward agendas.

It’s a straight up film about a very crazy passage in this womans’ life, suffice to say I really enjoyed it, as I did the new Star Wars, apart from it being Disneyfied’, a little too much, which would also be my only issue with the new Thor.

A Very Entertaining ride, but for something as dark as Ragnarok, the end of times, it did lean a little too much perhaps, towards being light hearted and funny …..

So, in assessing how things seem to be heading this year, I think this post is as appropriate a piece as any, to start this year with, because it was inspired by what I feel is the weakening of material in many areas of entertainment now, in some vain attempt to, not offend.

Well, I for one, will never stop pushing that button, that apparently, President Trump, and his North Korean nemesis, keep claiming they’ll push, if the other doesn’t behave.

Well, let’s hope they’re just waving their respective genitalia around for show, and don’t end up blowing holes in this world, because as this poem suggests, I think we have enough that currently need filling ……

There’s so much more that could be included in this post, however, for now, this month’s subject …. is ….
