” What Would You Say ? ” … A Poem written and performed by Big Virge

Okay peoples’, so now the Valentines whatever is over… it seems as though the strange vibes continue, pretty much everywhere, but, especially online it seems !

There’s literally, so much, NOT going on, that it’s difficult to know what to say, about anything these days.

The issue of what’s being spread across various social media feeds, is causing quite a quite few folks to start airing some pretty incredible views !

I’m seeing that the movement to being online most of the time, isn’t necessarily serving heads so well !

The internet gangsters, are finding, forum after forum, to spout their vitriol, and hatred at those who are equally as willing, to speak what they think.

The problem with this though, is that a lot of folks are getting their feelings hurt, because they seem to believe, as many folks now seem to, that their opinion is the only one that could possibly be right ?

Errr, nope, in case folks haven’t noticed, there are proving to be, innumerable nuances, that need to be applied to arguments, before claiming your positions on them, to be those that are completely, fact based, or those that actually hold any weight.

I am no stranger to being told that I have a rather high opinion of myself, however, as I’ve made clear, pointing fingers isn’t a wise thing to do, when your accusations have little, to, no grounds, that can be substantiated.

My being a writer who documents what society presents, is a field where assessments have to be made, due to the social observations, that I choose to use as the main inspiration for what I speak about.

I’m not always wrong, or right, in actual fact, these days, i’d rather be wrong, more than i’m right about what I now see, and believe to be what’s going on, in terms of future plans for human beings !

I try not to make personal attacks, even when I am on the receiving end of them, unless they are made, against those who have done so publicly, in a way that marginalises, or demeans people wrongfully.

However, the idea that when you comment on someone’s work, or opinions directly, that you’ll immediately be agreed with, is the height of ignorance, and arrogance.

State your position, and let it be that, and if you receive a response that you don’t like, keep cool, don’t blow gaskets, and either, articulate a response, or simply, agree to disagree and walk away.

There really is no reason to go off on some, passive aggressive, or attention seeking rants, because people don’t agree with your point of view.

Of course everybody can’t react to things in the same way, but in pressurised times like these, it’s wise to take a few deep breaths, and realise that many are just spouting, anything to be heard now, and others are simply going a bit stir crazy, as well as, a little bit too, conspiracy theory happy !

It’s a good time for folks to explore some, meditation time, and to recognise that whatever anger you feel, needs to be vented at those who are causing you to feel angry.

It’s also a time to recognise, that there are millions of people caught in precarious circumstances now.

So, perhaps, try to think of others, before aiming angst at folks, who may not be in the best position to cope currently.

It’s a time to THINK……

BEFORE You REACT !

…. and to maybe, take an extra second to do so, before you say something that you later regret, or wish you hadn’t said.

Now in a strange way, this all connects to this weeks, spoken word drop, because everybody seems to have an opinion that they want to air these days, about everything and everybody, except themselves.

So, this is an old piece that explores the ideal of what people would say, if they were, now able to talk to themselves in their younger days, knowing what they have actually become ….

[Or, in this case, what I might choose to advise myself to do, and, not do !]

People seem very willing, all of a sudden, to get in peoples faces about pretty much, anything and everything. However, don’t seem so willing to turn the tables on themselves, to look in the mirror, and take a moment to think about what they’ve done, and, how they behave in this life !

It’s a very hard thing to really be honest with yourself, about what, if anything, you would change about yourself, or the paths you have taken, and to, as I have done in this poem, ask yourself …

If you could talk to yourself in your youth, and prepare yourself for how the world is today …..

“Punch” … Written and performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, the struggle continues into 2021, and quite a few things, as well as people, seem to be packing, quite the punch, as things continue to move, even if, in very guarded ways.

Curfews and Lockdowns continue globally, to seemingly, increase and grow, due to the punch that the old, and, NEW Corona Strains, seem to be delivering, to institutions like the NHS, in the UK, to everyone from sports organisations, events and teams, to prison institutions, and tourists in Barbados, from what’s being said to be true.

However, one has to wonder how much punch the truth is packing these days ?

Moving along suitably to, The Don, and his SECOND, Yup …
SECOND Set of Impeachment Problems !!!

Like WTF … ?!?

Just CRAZY, but you’ve got to laugh, when taking close looks at the Capitol Hill Assault, and the subsequent apologies, and reactions, of those now being shamed and named, for the public to see …

Tut Tut Tut …

All TOUGH and apparently Righteous, on the day, but not so much, now that people are getting to air their views, and opinions on these again, apparently, righteous actions, that once again, were acts of protest, and, civil unrest right ???

However, when black folks were protesting about, black people DYING, that’s right, DYING, as a result of ASSAULTS, and MURDERS, perpetrated by law enforcement, rather than throwing their toys out of their prams, because an election result didn’t go their way … ???

We were destroying neighbourhoods, acting violently, like some inhuman breed, were the type of things being said, if I’m not mistaken right ?!?

Hmmm, now when you look at these occurrences, and make comparisons, on such a basis, it seems that the only thing that really packed a punch, as a result of these disturbances, has been media commentaries, and the Democrats, and Republicans, getting to oust Donald, and the boost of vaccination drives, and fear of death, due to what ???

Our new friend, the Corona Virus…. ?!?

Huh … !?!

Interestingly, the one thing that isn’t really packing a punch, is boxing anymore, Floyd about to take on a youtuber’, says it all, and don’t even try to tell me about Fury vs Joshua….

They can punch each other as much as they want, not really interested.

However, the continued punch of dubious actions, by the likes of, ex Aussie Cricket Captain, Steve Smith, and alleged racist fans, in Sydney, do interest me, as do the platitudes, from Cricket Australia Heads, who like their British Cousins, keep talking about their, ZERO TOLERANCE policies against racism, that don’t seem to actually, be stopping anyone who is racist, from running their stupid gums, when they get drunk ?!?

Nuff’ said.

Finally, what about poor old, Bruce Willis eh, tut tut, put your mask on Bruce old boy, or you’ll get into trouble now, especially when pictures go viral of you flaunting the rules to shop ….

…. which leads me to the final punch, that is a lil’ more disturbing, for people already looking over their shoulders, regarding things like rising costs, due to this Brexit Deal, and the further closure of businesses, some as big as Debenhams, who have announced that certain stores will not re-open, once this lockdown is over !

There are also a number of small businesses, that seem to already be suffering, as things have begun in 2021, and a report is suggesting that, somewhere in the region of 250,000 businesses, are under serious threat of closing, due to the lockdown in the UK.

Oh and, just one more, quite pertinent thing, the efficacy punch of these vaccines, which seem to be varying from as high as 95%, to, as disturbingly low as 55%, for certain vaccines being rolled out in places like Brazil, that are coming out of where … ?

CHINA, of all places …

It’s a bit of a lottery out there, when it comes to their ability to protect, or to do more, to fight off this virus it would seem … ???

Punches are being thrown in all sorts of directions currently, so, it’s not a bad time to drop a few rhymes, that reflect on those who have tried to punch above their weight, in their dealings with me, over the years, as well as reflecting on some of the TRULY GREAT Names, from yesteryear, who, within the realm of Professional Boxing, really did pack a …..

“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 ?“

“The Black James Bond” … written and performed by Big Virge

So folks, 2021, here we go, and like most I guess, this 2020 holiday season, has been on a very low key, and tone for me.

I am not a big one for it anyway, however, have always indulged in a few drinks and parties over the years, but thankfully at 50, i’m content with my own company, and less frolicking, so I took in some, ” Wonder Woman 1984 “, for some light entertainment, and boy was that LIGHT, and not in a particularly good way !

I mean, all due respect to Madame Jenkins, but like really, as many are suggesting, Pedro Pascals’ villain, was like a poor caricature of The Don, and i’d rather watch and listen to him do his Presidential thing, to be honest !

I have never been a fan of Gal Gadot being Wonder Woman, simply because she doesn’t even have the kind of body that would befit an Amazonian Warrior, One, and secondly, she just doesn’t do much more, than look pretty from certain angles.

The rather strange plot of wishes being what she was fighting in this, was well, weak at best.

Kristen Wigg’s Cheetah, again, Meh … just not hot, even when she was supposed to be, and nothing to write home about in her performance, however, I think much of this was a result of a poor script and story.

The only thing that warmed my heart a little bit, was the post credit appearance of Linda Carter, who, although obviously aged, still brought a little something to it, which was about all that really worked for me, in the entire film.

The movie really was a disappointment, and as much as we can all see that, Wonder Woman is an iconic, female hero, the overtones of female power, were just a little too much, and felt very forced at times.

So overall, I have to say that it was a very disappointing experience, even the flying scenes, and effects were just poorly executed, and lacked any sense of being believable, or particularly warranted.

Hopefully, the next Justice League will give her a little more well, Oomph, for want of a better word.

However, The Mandalorian, on the other hand, now, that Pedro performance was much more entertaining, and watchable, even though his face was covered for the majority of it, and Grogu, presumably, a distant relative of the one and only Yoda, was suitably cute, that I think that, even to a grown man like me, I was quite willing to watch his tiny lil’ ass waddle around !

As heroic characters go, The Mandalorian was working it throughout the entire second season, and Jon Favreau, alongside of the likes of George Lucas, and a string of different directors, created a landscape that was not only, visually impressive, but indulged in some impressive fight scenes, and choreography.

Carl Weathers and Gina Carano, did their thing too, and to see, Temuera Morrison, reprise his role as Boba Fett, was a pleasant surprise, as was the addition of Ming-Na Wen, and of course, the return of a digitally enhanced, Luke Skywalker, which was a much needed thing, after his rather ridiculous usage, in the recent debacle of Star Wars movies.

The only character who didn’t really rock my world, was that of Giancarlo Esposito, whose villain seemed a little forced, and somewhat bland, in comparison to say, Peter Cushing, or Ian McDiarmaid’s Emperor.

So, an interesting holidays viewing, that left me with a wish to see exactly where Favreau will take the series in the future.

Talking of the future, well bwoy’, what a start to 2021 we are having eh… ?

A National Lockdown in the UK again, which does not bode well at all, and as far as Barbados is concerned, the mutated strain seems to have been allowed to come to the island, and to go on parties, bus crawls and into the prison.

SMH …..

Also, the sudden death of horse trainer, JP McManus’s daughter, has to also concern folks somewhat, who are not just drinking and waltzing around as if, due to 2020 being a thing of the past, that the issues surrounding this mutated strain of Corona, are in the past too, who are acting like fools who need to be schooled.

So, it seems as if the world may well need a hero in 2021…
Maybe like this one, who is a personal fav’ of mine…

So this time, no bass line or beat in tow, just a straight down the pipe, Big Virge, Spoken Word Flow, to start the year, from my alternate persona of ….

The Black James Bond folks … ENJOY … !!!

So Celebrate … NAH …
This New Year I’ll Pass …
Instead of Act Like An Ass … !!!

Because 2021 May Well Become …
A Year That’s Remembered …
For … Years To Come … !!!

Due To Trade Deals Done …
And Presidential Stunts …
FILLED With AGENDAS …
And MORE Restrictions … !!!

DON’T Go HERE …
And DON’T Go THERE … !!!

UNLESS You’re RICH …
And Can Choose To Live …
In A … “ Virtual World “ …

Where Quarantines Serve …
To Help You Work …
In Foreign Lands …
So You Can Still Make Cash …

Or Maybe … Bitcoins …
According To Tech Boys … ?!?

While Mutated Strains …
of This Virus Cause PAIN … !!!

Well … So They Say …
The Same Shameless Names … !!!
Who … Keep Getting Paid …
For Causing DISARRAY …

Because Party Days …
Will NOT Be The Same … !!!

Now 2020’s Done …
And Infections JUMP …
And VACCINATIONS …

Well Maybe NOT FORCED … ?!?
But When You Get To Airports …
You’ll … HAVE To Report …

Where You Want To Go … !?!

Because of New Controls …
That Will Take Hold of How You Roll …
It’s A Sketchy Road With Definitive Goals …

So REMEMBER This Quote …

“ Big Virge Told You So ! “

Because of Places Like SPAIN …
Where They’re Already Saying …

That If You CHOOSE …
To REJECT And REFUSE …
To Take A Vaccine For Covid-19 …

Or … Is That TWENTY …
Or Twenty Twenty One … ?!?!

That Your Name Will Be One …
Placed On Registers …

of Those Who Are Known …
To Have Simply Said NO …
To Receiving A Jab …
And That’s A FACT …

So Whats Up With THAT … ?!?
Cos’ It Sounds Like A Plan …
To Make People Less Keen …
To Be Those NOT Deemed …
To Be … Covid Free …

But Do These Vaccines …
Make You FREE of Disease …
Like … Covid-19 … ?!?

When MUTATED Strains …
Seem To QUICKLY Update …
And Return … AGAIN … ?!?

2021 …
Doesn’t Sound Like Much Fun …

Unless VACCINATIONS …
Are Taken By EVERYONE … !?!

So Of Course They’ll Say …
That You Can Choose To Abstain …
But If Virus Strains Mutate AGAIN … ?!?

Policies May CHANGE …
And Then … REARRANGE …

And I Think That We’ll See …
… Politicians Lean …
Towards Making Vaccinations …
…… “ COMPULSORY “ ……

Because It Doesn’t Make Sense …
To Let SOME Say … YES …
But To Have Them STRESSED …

Because of Those Who REJECT …
What They Say Will Suppress …
The Rise and Spread …
of This DEADLY VIRUS … !!!

It’s A Situation …
That’s Causing Consternation …

Because of How Lockdowns …
And Masks Haven’t Stopped …
Corona Causing Problems … !!!

This Poem Is One …
That’s NOT About FUN … !!!

It Is One That Questions …
What Is Likely To Come ….

“Separate” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as the issues of lockdowns and social distancing continue to cause difficulties for everyone, from children, to couples, to families, it seems that divorces and separations, much like after 9/11, are once again rising, if we are to believe reports coming out of the media, and certain law firms, that are claiming to have seen a significant rise in enquiries about the divorce process.

It has also been claimed that there are number of women, who are just waiting until this whole Corona situation is stabilised, alongside of the economic situation, to then go on their merry way, and to make a fresh start !

Well, as per usual, money would seem to dictate why divorces have become a hot topic, in difficult times ….

Love does not conquer all it would seem ???

Thus, a load of false declarations are clearly made at alters, because as soon as external forces falter, divorce seems to be the first option that many are drawn to.

Like really … WTF … ?!?

There are of course, those partnerships where compromises are made to try to keep sinking ships afloat, however, as jobs continue to go, and businesses continue to fold, pressures in homes rise, so, it’s no surprise that, all of a sudden cracks start to appear, when people have to spend more time in each other’s company !

So again, much like the now, famous song asked….

“ Where Is The Love “, people ?!?

It’s an interesting dynamic, that has far reaching effects, because what this virus has also done, is to separate minds, as opinions differ, on everything form wearing masks, to theories about vaccines, to thoughts about the seriousness of this situation.

There are those who are clearly keen to get to whatever new normal they foresee, while there are, of course, numerous people who are seemingly, unsure as to the validity of much that is being presented, as being the best way forward.

Personally, I have found that the stresses that are often underplayed by people, are affecting mind states in adverse ways, when certain things become apparent, like the lack of certainty, regarding certain policies, especially when, everyone from celebrities to politicians, seem to have no problem breaching what we are all being told are punishable movements, that breach the same rules that are being used to rule and clearly confuse, a great many people !

So, in truth, I have to say that it is quite reasonable for these separations to be an issue in such confusing times, be they, over social issues or those of a more intimate nature, the benefit of keeping ones thoughts and opinions to yourself, cannot simply be seen, as dipping ones head in the sand.

Sometimes, to separate yourself from the issues of the world, and more importantly, from peoples opinions, and underlying stresses and denials, is an act of self preservation, rather than those of disillusioned souls.

So, this piece, even though written, a long time before Corona brought it to the fore, speaks on the subject of divorce, due to those feelings that dictate a need to …..

“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 …..

“My Mans'” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, this last few days has shown the world a lot of new things, as to what the future may, or may not bring, from a possible, Pfizer Vaccine, that seems to be the one that world governments are jumping on, as the one that will be rolled out, as the Pfizer team seem to be readily accepted, as the good guys in the fight against Corona, which in time, it seems that we shall see !

However, there now seem to be a few companies with workable vaccines, which leads me to thinking, that as ever, if all these companies just worked say, TOGETHER, wouldn’t that have availed a quicker resolution, and have worked out better ?

Well, clearly not in this world of divisions !

A suitable word to lead me to the US Election result, and how it’s still causing concerns, as, ” The Don “, apparently still feels as if he’s being cheated out of his Presidential Status !

So, no smooth transition, or acceptance of defeat, seems likely just yet.
However, what this has once again bred, is the discrediting of people, from his own Whitehouse Team, who in many cases, have apparently contracted the virus, according to the mainstream media, who, he sees as not being with him, or his pursuit of this result being overturned.

Meanwhile, President Elect, Biden, seems to be formulating his team of people, who’ll be the ones he’ll entrust to help him, if and when he does, get to occupy the Whitehouse come January !

There’s also talk of, compulsory vaccine appropriation in New York, and Covid Infection rates, sharply rising in various places once again !

It’s a time where allegiances, and loyalties are being put to some very stern tests, so I figure it’s a time to drop something positive, in terms of the various people I have, and haven’t met who have been inspirations to me, be they, women and men, from so many walks of life, that I had to put them into some rhymes, because of what they’ve done for me over the years, which is why, I will always see these people as being …

“Action” … A Poem written by Big Virge

So folks, here we go, Election Action is grabbing hold of America, and clearly the worlds attention, in what may well be one of the most important elections in both, American, and World History, simply because of the actions that are likely to occur, if we believe what is being said, by the right and left wings of American Media !

The whingers’ of the left, are of course panicking about whether or not, Donald Trump will follow his talk up, with actions that could cause the type of political, and public turmoil, that could come from his refusing to leave office, if he ends up losing, which the right wing media seems to now be saying, is actually much less likely than suggested, after the first Presidential Debate !

There is also, the seemingly foreboding issue, of guns being seen around voting centres, and the actions that could result, from a Trump Loss, which allegedly, has been seen, days before the serious collating and counting begins, an incredible thing to even imagine, let alone see in an election in 2020 ?

Could voters be suppressed, and stopped from voting, like REALLY, with people wielding weapons, in an alleged, FIRST WORLD Democracy ???

There are also the claims of Election Rigging, coming from the Trump Camp, that could result in the unthinkable action, and reinforce his refusing to leave office, if he is declared as the loser, which would be unprecedented, and one has to wonder if he would dare to try and do such a thing, and what actions he would have to undertake, to maintain such a position ?

Is it possible that Civil Unrest, and violence, due to an election result, could grab hold of America ?

Surely not, but we’re getting close now, and the next few days will tell a very interesting story, for years to come, it would seem, or is it all just hype ???

Nature is also acting in volatile ways in various places, from the UK to the USA, to the Philippines and beyond, where Typhoons, Hurricanes, Floods, High Winds and Bush Fires are doing their thing and forcing people to evacuate their homes, just to survive the powers of nature’s elements !

Talking of powers, we now have European powers, across the continent, enforcing lockdowns, that are resulting in public actions, that aren’t necessarily, dealing in blind submission, to what, more and more people seem to be seeing as a blatant restriction of basic freedoms, and the ability to simply make a living, that is resulting in civil unrest and violence, from Spain to Italy, and protests in England !

Actions that, aren’t quite as accepting as they were when the first set of lockdowns were imposed !

So, these second lockdown actions, are not being received quite as submissively as the first, it would seem, so, what will this mean ?

Infection spikes, and death tolls that spiral out of control, or revolts of the type, that prove conspiracy theorists right ???

One has to wonder, as infection rates apparently rise rapidly in numbers, according to medics and scientists all over the world.

Well, all I will say is that whatever happens, I believe that according to the ridiculous manner in which this virus situation has been handled, from day one, and the clear lack of any kind of righteous leadership across the globe, regarding transitions of power, which don’t seem to be running very smoothly, from Africa to Europe, to North America currently, that the people of the world may now need to seriously decide, whether it’s time to mobilise in more ways than through, street protests and the like, and whether to stop buying into the media train of what has truly become, a complete circus of madness, and dismiss supporting these, actors and rappers, who seem to be aligning themselves with the very system that the art form of Hip Hop, originally came about to stand against, and like my poetic offering for the week suggests, take to, what may just amount to, some Very SERIOUS …
