“Reason” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So people, as we move forward in life, one would hope that we would all learn to use reason, in ways that benefit our lives positively.

However, many peoples reasons for doing things, are often shrouded in a world of confusion, ignorance, and lies.

In these days and times, one has to wonder as to, what the reasons are behind certain things ?

The obvious one, is the whole conspiratorial view of why Covid’ has come about, where it’s come from, and what the real value is of vaccinations ?

Yes Yes, the apparent, obvious reason, is for peoples well being !

However, if you aren’t quite as willing as the Sheople’, to just believe that this all came about by chance, and that …..

Hey, it’s just one of those things that we have to come to terms with ……
There are some quite reasonable questions to ask, as to why this is all happening ?

The civil unrest that was occurring prior to this virus rising, cannot be disregarded, as locking down countries, certainly put an immediate stop to that, rather sharpish !

Not buying that … ???

Why, because there are still violent acts occurring every day now !

Fair enough, but, what if the vaccination, and, track and trace programmes, are being linked to new tech surveillance models for the future, which will stop those getting away with their ignorance now, due to their ability to trace their future movements, in a more, cost effective, and tech driven manner ?

Isn’t that reasonable to believe, with robot dogs and human looking bots now functioning ?

Isn’t it also reasonable to believe that this same, track and trace technology, that is now in most, if not all smart phones, is to be eventually used to monitor our every movement, every day, all day, enabling total surveillance and, Dystopian Big Brother Living ?

Isn’t that now a reasonable thing to foresee, or is that just crazy thinking ?

Ask George Orwell, or get into some 1984, and reason it out.

Also, what about the race issue becoming so prevalent, since George Floyd’s killing ?

Why has this particular injustice, become such a huge factor in race discussions and divisions, reaching the heights that are clearly now visible, on any social media comment feed concerning racism, because of the nature of Chauvin’s actions being caught on camera ?

Why, when Rodney Kings beating was also caught on camera, and the officers got off ?

Especially when there have since been, countless instances of ridiculous policing, in between times, and still happening, that keeps leading to other black people dying ?

There has to be a bigger reason for this particular situation to now have reached such magnified levels of interest ?

Did the Black Lives Matter movement, just happen to be around to drive the race debate even more, to maybe help to oust Donald Trump from office ?

Why did HE even get into power in the first place huh ?

If there are cabals, and power brokers above the likes of world political leaders, why would they have let Trump gain power at all ?

There must be reasons behind this stuff, like there has to be for suddenly exposing, all these paedophiles in churches, and within school systems globally ?

They’ve clearly been around for, many many years, but yet, only now are they being held accountable ?

Many of these abusers, only now that they’re about to kick the bucket anyway ?

Is there a sudden push of morality, if so, why ?

Oh of course because folk have suddenly become, “ Woke “ !

Give me a break !

So, what about the new gender wave, and #metoo movements.

All of a sudden, guys are the devil, like Noel Clarke ….

DAMN, like WTF dude !?!

…. when it comes to the very natural instinct of wanting to let women know that they either, find them attractive, and want to have sex with them ?

Whats’s the reasoning behind this demonising of men’s natural instincts, to make us all model gentlemen, who always know when and, what words to use, to convey how we feel to the fairer sex ?

Like REALLY ???

All this, while new gender traits are being promoted, that seem to be pushing people away from heterosexual behaviour, there must be a reason, surely ?

It’s being pushed in entertainment, music, education, social media platforms, and basically anywhere where it can reach the mass populous, but especially to the next generations of young adults, incessantly !

Isn’t anyone interested, or at least, questioning the reasons for all this ?

ANYONE ?

Well, the argument seems to be population control, according to the so called, conspiracy theorists out there ?

Or are they just, THINKERS ???

Unlikely as it is, if you drive men away from women, or simply, wanting to be men, where and who do they now turn to, to get their rocks off, not to women right !!!

Especially with this new breed of, rather extreme feminist, who seems to think that it’s men’s turn to know their place, when dealing with females now !

How much time do people really even have, to look into the possible reasons why, certain things are now moving in the ways that they are ?

It’s a crazy time to be alive, as digital currencies begin to thrive, and there’s a clear drive towards, cashless living !

Are we really living in, a transgender….

… “ Matrix “ …

Ask the Wachowski brothers, err hmm …

Sorry, I mean … SISTERS Now !!!

Well, I don’t know, and these days, really don’t care anymore, because we sadly are living in a society that seems to be refusing to deal in, sound logical reasoning.

In looking back over my 50 years of life, the more I think about people and their behaviour, it’s pretty clear that logic and reason, are not traits that are regularly found in most human beings !

People just do what they want, without much thought, if any at all, in a rather high amount of cases.

From religion to race, to sex, humans do some very strange things, and as time goes on, are allowing the power brokers who run society, to enforce even stranger things, that are going to have, definitive effects on future trends, attitudes, and styles of living.

I say all this to introduce this piece, that asks some questions about the reasons for a lot of things ….

The fact is that, very few people seem to know what’s behind a lot of current, societal movements, let alone their own ?

I like to think of myself as a man who really uses my mind to think, and to apply logic to how I move.

So, this piece looks at the reasons behind a variety of things, and reflects on the reasoning that guides my thinking and actions…

… which is why it’s simply called…

“The Inside Track ” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, ” The Inside Track “, is a suitable subject to now speak on, having recently spoke on,

“ Keeping It Real “, and then the idea that those who don’t, end up becoming Puppets or Pawns, to be sacrificed in rituals, when they step out of line, in terms of certain, hierarchical structures.

The Inside Track to fame and success, clearly has many variables and many contractual obligations, that go beyond being the best at what you do.

It would seem to be foolish to believe that this isn’t the case. especially when it comes to getting fame.

I’ve had my time of attempting to become a pro sportsman, and having done my creative thing for a while now, have seen just how important it is to have the right connections, to get to be around certain people, or gatekeepers, who can open certain gates, or doors as it were, for you to gain access to the realm where, the big shottas’ are, and where the big money is at.

However, as my last couple of posts have eluded to, there seems to be an incredible level of preferential treatment, that avails such opportunities, and it comes at a price that isn’t always, monetarily driven.

Many seem to be sexually driven, or are driven by restrictions on what you can, or cannot say.

The #MeToo movement, has driven many to now see the industry as being a place filled with rapists, or sexual deviants, which I would certainly not doubt as being the case. However, is it not also then reasonable to think about sexual favours being given by women, to get to certain positions, as it now seems to be being levelled at men ?

Is it all a one sided abuse of power equation ?

Well, I would have to suggest, that I believe that people are being naive to tell themselves, that everybody whose become famous, has done so, solely based on their artistic talents.

It’s pretty clear when, so called, underground artists and art, find their way into mainstream mediums, that many who are deemed as being talented, suddenly look quite mediocre, in comparison to those who have found a different way into the public’s view.

Once again though, even these people have, in Hip Hop Vernacular, had to get…

“ Put On “ …..

…. by someone who had, ” The Inside Track “, in terms of getting them heard, or seen by certain people within underground collectives, where some very shady characters seem to be waiting, and making a living !

As many have said for years and years now, it’s not as simple as just coming down to what creative gifts you have, it’s who you know, and who THEY Know, that plays as big a part, if not the ultimate part in gaining success.

This is not solely within the arts and entertainment worlds, it applies to the corporate, political, and social worlds too !!!

It is a very significant part of life, from the schoolyard to the bedroom, you’ve got to be seen as one of the cool crews, in a lot of instances, to get through.

The level of compromise you are willing to embrace, plays a massive factor in how quickly you get through too !

So, this piece revolves around the issue of how people get on the inside track, and is based around many conversations that i’ve had over the years, with artistic peers, as well as a particular conversation with an individual, who works directly behind the cameras, who had no reservation in telling me that she felt that the group of people who can get you on that inside track, are not necessarily, the best group of folks to get connected to….

So, as I’m at that point, where I can no longer see myself in such collectives, here’s a piece that sends a cursory warning to those thinking it’s all good, because they’ve got a fair amount of talent…

Y’all need to check yourselves, and ease back, and take a REALLY GOOD, LONG LOOK at, what it takes, and more importantly, WHO it may take, for you to get to the spot where you get fame and cash, that avails you a position, where you’re path is cleared, by someone who can get you on …..

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

So, as one gets older, you get to see that things aren’t necessarily as they seem to be, when it comes to those who get to air their views on controversial issues, in public forums.

The idea that people really do, as per my last post, “ Keep It Real “,
is something that needs to be, seriously questioned as being true ?

Many people from mainstream media, are clearly bound by the string pullers, who direct and control what it is, that they get to say, and when, and who they get to say it to !

There are also an abundance of political puppets, at various levels of the political spectrum.

Of course they, and many of their cohorts, would claim that they are not puppets, and many would ask the question,

How do you know that they are a puppet ?

Well, I guess it’s a matter of perspective, however, when people suddenly disappear from vision, or are, “ Blackballed “, for saying something that upset the wrong group, or someone, it’s only reasonable to believe that there are people who wouldn’t dare, cross the line of fire, that comes from stepping outside of accepted narratives.

As an artist who uses words to express my views and opinions, it’s become very clear to me, that there are numerous puppets within the entertainment industry, who seem to be very mindful of not speaking on certain issues, in totally honest and forthright ways.

The subject of Religion warrants strings being pulled on certain vocal chords, as it obviously does with gender now.

The alphabet crowd have considerable pull, in terms of who gets to be in certain positions, and the puppets know that they had better not speak out of turn, or say anything disparaging about their community, or else, face the penalty of disappearing from the public eye, and kissing any career in the media goodbye.

The only way to avoid being a puppet, is to become so rich and powerful, that you can do your own thing, but the question then becomes, what did you have to do to get to have that amount of money, in the first place ?

Even when it comes to the Internet, and peoples claims that they have got their respective online platforms to flourish, without bowing to anyone, the most skeptical amongst us, would still question if certain strings haven’t been attached to you at some point ?

Be you on, Youtube, or on other online channels and platforms, they are all monitored, and unless they benefit from what you’re doing, you can be removed at the touch of a button, if you’re found to breach certain site protocols, or guidelines.

So, to think that the Internet has freed people from being subject to puppet controls, would at best be, clearly somewhat naive !

It would seem nonsensical to believe that people who work their way up the ladder of success, don’t have people telling them, when to speak, and when to keep their mouths shut !

Basic relationships between couples, indulge in this form of puppetry, at a lesser level, but certain men and women, pull strokes, or strings, to get what they want from the other party, so it’s just a part of life.

However, when it comes to art forms like Hip Hop, up until the advent of less controlled interviews, like those now found on platforms like YouTube, certain things that are now being exposed, about the type of strings that are being pulled by powerful individuals, to keep certain heads reigned in, remained unknown !

However, many of these things are now being discussed on camera, be they things connected to sex, or to power moves that restrict individuals from releasing information on their peers, due to the nature of certain compromises that they’ve made, to get to be where they are.

The idea of underground rappers earning their position, seems to have now become something that’s driven by this form of puppetry, becoming a dominant factor in who gets where, and more importantly, how fast.

This may seem to be more like a case of simple compromise, however, once you’ve compromised yourself to the point where you have dirty secrets, that you don’t ever want people to know, then when your strings get pulled by your puppet master, you’re not likely to break those strings when pushed to, do or say things to again, promote a certain narrative, that keeps your image intact.

It all seems crazy to those who buy into, anything that famous people say, but fame like gaining power, clearly comes at a high price, much higher than most people think !

Your life for one, could be jeopardised, but there is also the prospect of what certain things being exposed, could do to your family.

We’ve already seen numerous celebrities, come out of closets in recent times !

So, weren’t they puppets for many years, when it wasn’t acceptable to open their closet doors, that were firmly closed, due to the narrative that once suggested such behaviour to be abhorrent ?

The idea of, keeping it real, is very closely linked to actually, NOT DOING SO, as strange as that may seem to say, however, when you take a close look at how things really work, and listen to those now suggesting that there’s much more to becoming successful, than meets the eye, in terms of gaining A-List Level success.

One has to question the legitimacy of much that certain, famous people, from various walks of, Elite Life, claim to be their position on a variety of subjects ?

As hard as it might be for people to accept, it’s pretty clear to see that a great many of those who we see as being the best, are actually people who have simply become, very good at hiding the strings that guide much that they say and do, because they know that they are simply….

The real power brokers…

“Keep It Real” … A Poem written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay so, I really think that people need to stop talking about being,
“ Woke “, and about, ” Keeping It Real ‘, or, as it is now, Keeping it 100, when they clearly take issue with people doing so, when it comes to THEM, the things that they say and do, and what rules their respective worlds.

The new gender collectives, are the group with the biggest issue of people keeping it real about themselves and their opinions, especially when their words offend their clearly, very thin skins !!!

It’s pretty obvious though, that when you’ve been hiding the apparent truth from yourself, about what gender you SEE Yourself as being, which goes against the natural thing that you were born to be, it’s no surprise that facing the TRUTH is probably gonna be an issue for them ?

However, the bigger issue with the truths that surround these groups and their movements, seems to revolve around those who do not agree with their ideals and beliefs, who are swiftly vilified, to the point where many feel that they simply can’t speak their truth about what they feel about these people.

Sometimes the bullet just has to be bitten, and you have to stand for what you are about, instead of, excuse the pun, bending over to stay in the game….

Tell it to John Carlos, or Steve Biko, and the people who have died for less, so what’s with all this half stepping, and compromising for these groups, that do not half step when they essentially, bully people into silence, submission, or worse still, compliance ?

Either say what you mean, or don’t open your mouth, unless it’s to take what’s coming to you.

Simple.

It’s becoming clearer and clearer, that the entertainment industry is pretty much ruled, by the alphabet gender communities.

Gina Carano, being the most recent person to have felt their wrath, due to her basically saying, what she wants about the Transgender community, amongst others, and there are countless others who have also been quickly told that they had better rein in their tongues to stay paid, or in the game, that seems to be, everything but real.

The interesting part is that when it comes to Hollywood, the truth is hardly something that can be levelled as being part of a group, who, as quite a few individuals have now said, from talk show hosts, to some actors themselves, is filled with lies, lying, and liars.

It always amazes me now how people act so surprised when white guys and gals in showbiz, are found to be hiding some dark secrets, as if it just couldn’t be possible, however, when black people get exposed and accused of being of a similar ilk, it’s so easily believable ?

The idea that media reporting of such revelations is fair and equal, and 100 per cent truthful, just blows my mind !

This unconscious bias and racism that exists, defines the issues that black people have always faced, and always will, because when we speak our minds, we’re homophobic, or aggressive, or whatever, negative narrative can be used to demonise our views.

However, when it’s white folks who use bigoted, hateful, racist terminology, up until very recently, there was always some excuse for them to say, or do the things that they do ?

The use of Autism recently, to explain the following of Neo Nazis, by Ben Hannam, because he was found to have joined the Metropolitan Police, really took the biscuit, as far as I’m concerned !

This though, also leads me to the other side of that coin, where black people seem to still have this, bee in their bonnet, about how basically, every issue that we face in the modern world, is as a result of something white society has done.

I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, until black people deal in accountability for our own failings and flaws, we’ll never overpower, or remove white supremacy from being something that, undoubtedly marginalises, and leaves many of us in dire situations, that lead to Deaths.

Deaths like that of Makiyah Bryant, may she rest in peace, that has occurred on the very same day, literally an hour before Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all charges relating to George Floyd’s killing !

Coincidence, or just incredibly bad timing, that another police shooting occurs the day that black people across America were celebrating the removal of one for a considerable time, from public life, dependent on sentencing of course.

It’s clearly too soon to pass any judgment on this teenagers death, however, people better check the footage, before rioting, or immediately laying all blame at the policeman hands.

This incident was due to an altercation between three black women, and a man who attempted to kick one of these females in the head when she was on the ground, as the police arrived, who was then quick to shout,

“She’s just a kid”, upon seeing Ms. Bryant, who was wielding a knife, get shot.

So again, accountability and rational thinking people, things are not always as they seem, and black people under todays, Black Lives Matter Influence, seem to have very short sight, when it comes to what they are doing, to have police become embroiled in their lives to the point where they end up facing being killed or actually being killed.

The request for the police was allegedly made by the young woman who got shot, so they didn’t, in this instance, just run up on them and start acting up, the fracas was between black people before the police had even got there !

As i’ve seen on a recent instagram post, there is a quote that needs to be shown to a lot of black folks right about now, which does not involve the police, which is simply…

” WE MUST DO BETTER. ”

It’s a simple thing, that may not stop racist policing or profiling, but might just stop certain situations coming to their attention.

Unpopular as that is to a lot of ignorant black people, it’s my stance, and I could care less who has a problem with it, because many of us do manage to avoid encounters with the police, and even when we do, we know how to avoid these sorts of fatal incidents occurring, which is why we’re still here.

I do think though, that the officer who shot Ms. Bryant, was extraordinarily trigger happy, and certainly could of shot her, in a way that disabled her, without killing her, time will tell though, as per usual.

It certainly was a shocking video, and with the Chauvin trial and verdict coming literally, minutes later, it’s just an incredible thing to have happened, at such a huge moment for Black America.

However, let’s keep it real, when triggers are being pulled in the streets, or specifically, gang neighbourhoods, who’s pulling these triggers, huh who … ?!?

As I saw in a video a few days ago, when, “ G Codes “, demand that blacks who know of other blacks killing, wait for it…… Once again, OTHER BLACKS,

NO SNITCHING IS ALOUD !

Well, as The Late Great, Bernie Mac articulately stated, comedically,

What kind of bullshit is that ?

“ Your honour, he did that shit, I saw it, lock him up, and throw away the key, and make sure he can’t come and get me ! “

“ New Fools “, was the phrase he used, and he was right.

There are far too many individuals, denying the truth, to stay cool with their peoples’, the money crews, and with the apparently, “ woke “, and, ” down groups “, like …

Huh Hmmm … Black Lives Matter ….

…. and they aren’t the only group to, only come to the surface, when cameras and media turn up, to get themselves to suddenly be seen to be giving a damn !

There are people out there, who are not afraid of being blackballed for calling a spade a spade, or a gay a gay, so why has George Floyd stirred them up so much, when so many have died before, because of phone camera footage … ?

Like REALLY … ?!?

Whatever reset is going on, people need to stop bullshitting about who they claim to love, and recognise the REALITY, of who they sleep with, create families with, do deals with, to get to be where they be, and to stop lying to themselves about what inspires and motivates them !

Just… STOP IT !

We all know that money rules basically, everyone, who isn’t in some remote jungle land, that has yet to be tainted by monetary offers and bribes, or that CREAM right.

So, this drop is one for all these people claiming to keep it 100, who have suddenly become, “ Woke “, when they’ve been keeping their secrets locked in closets, just like these tribes of new gender collectives, who are suddenly, like all the aforementioned people, now apparently ……

Expert .. Written and Performed by Big Virge

So, who isn’t an expert these days now eh ?

It doesn’t seem to require much more than a bit of research, googling, or just having an opinion, to be a modern day expert on the woes of the world, all of a sudden ?

You only have to go onto a social media feed, to see people spouting their views on, any, and everything, from creative talents, to the Corona Virus, Policing, or the dreaded subject of Racism.

It is quite disturbing to me, to see how quickly people claim to know what’s right, from what’s wrong these days, that then seems to lead to, subsequent attacks that are then made by others, insisting on the apparent fact, that people haven’t researched, are being biased, or that they are just being stupid, or ignorant.

Thus comes the expert, who knows everything, even though their only information comes from a bias, or a source that works for their bias.

So with Corona, it’s been Dr. Fauci, against the likes of Trump.
A battle that caused all sorts of dissension, and divisive views about everything from, wearing masks to vaccines, social distancing and lockdowns.

So then, in comes President Biden, and suddenly, there’s a little less reluctance to resist the vaccine rollout, and everything connected to Coronas demise !!!

Have the experts changed ?

Nope, but the sway of power and influence, means that whoever the expert is, whose an ally of, said President, the bias is swiftly removed.

How easily people are swayed !

The next monster in most rooms now, is the history, treatment, and current state of affairs, relating to the black race, that is a subject, that is now being extensively covered in documentaries and studies, by an abundance of black historians, scientists, doctors and their ilk, whose reading and information, must again, make them experts right ?

Well, so many who are listening to them, believe these people.

However, questions will always remain as to the validity of arguments that aren’t supported by evidence, because of it being, allegedly whitewashed from history, so, how exact are their expert opinions ?

A question that leads suitably to the individuals involved in this report on racism in modern Britain.

Lead by teachers, ex police, lawyers, business and community leaders, alongside of Samuel Kasumu, Boris Johnson’s main, black matters expert, honcho, community adviser, or, whatever other term could be used, to oversee, not only the report, but in Samuels case, the effort to get black folks reluctant to get vaccinated….

VACCINATED … !!!

…. by using, NOT Scientists or Medical Professionals, but, a knighted comedian, and actors, to try to convince black communities, via a video, to get with the programme, and get vaccinated as soon as possible !

Oh but wait !!!

As soon as the race report comes out, Mr. Kasumu jumps the Conservative ship, due to its content, firstly, denying institutional racism, and then, suggesting that as white majority nations go.

Britain is the best one to follow in terms of its racial integration, and progression, when it comes to how it’s minimised, racist behaviour….

Except for young, Neo nazis like Ben Hannam, finding his way into the Metropolitan Police,, which according the news report, posted on the, 1st of APRIL, on BBC News, HUH Hmmm,

was as EASY as … ” TICKING A BOX “.

Good job there Britain, especially with the further line of doubt cast on his Nazi tendencies, which can apparently be linked to his being Autistic ?!?

I hope Autism organisations are paying ATTENTION !

Don’t believe me, the article makes it quite clear !

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-56414713

So, why out the door so quickly Samuel ?

Huh … ???

…. Even if you wished to leave some time before the report came out, as had been alleged, why dude ???

HUH … ???

As for the likes of Tony Sewell and Keith Fraser, being an ex teacher and police officer, makes them experts on a subject that would clearly require a lot more input from, young black people in particular, who have been victims of police brutality and racist treatment in recent times.

Mr. Sewell and Mr. Fraser would seem to be less than qualified to speak on a subject that spreads, much farther and wider than their, rather lofty positions in British Institutions !

As was said to me this weekend, when black folks get into positions where they can perhaps influence white folks to at least, look at themselves in a critical way, saying the wrong thing could get you in trouble fast, so it’s difficult to believe that the report, which many seem to think, has once again, swept the issue of racism in the UK, under the rug, has been run by those without personal interests to protect, rather than, as we’re constantly told about this stuff, been run by an independent, suitably neutral, group of individuals.

Experts are hard to find, in any field, let alone in an area where so many factors have to be considered.

It’s hardly a job for a government, whose leader has been found to use, let’s call them, insensitive terms for racial groups, not so long ago….

The other factor that should perhaps be brought up in terms of recent times and attitudes coming to the fore, is BREXIT, isn’t it ?

There might be some interesting stories of the initial and subsequent reactions to the result of Britain saying yes to leaving the EU.

VERY Interesting stories, that would show that racism suddenly found a new home in the HALF of the populous who voted to leave.

Of course, nothing racist came from the leave voters now did it ???

Anyway, I think that the idea of expertise, is one that really needs to be checked by a lot of people now, who perhaps, need to take hard looks at themselves, rather than be so quick to get on high horses, when they are not in the best positions to be casting stones, or aspersions, or offering advice about things that none of us are particularly clear on, like say, taking a vaccine, which may not have killed many people, but has yet to be proven, to not be a danger to some, due to certain side effects, that have now come to light.

I go back to the Chris Rock statement on bad eggs in police forces, when it comes to these vaccinations !

One bad egg, is still, one too many !!!

Especially when there is no recourse, for legal action, if something bad does happen to someone taking a jab !

It’s a crazy time to just be, believing all and sundry about serious issues, experts or not, some things are just not to be taken at peoples’ word.

So, this poem reflects on a few things that i’ve experienced, seen and heard from self proclaimed experts, in recent times, who, as said, should perhaps check themselves, before running their mouths…..

I am thankful to many of them now, because what they’ve all taught me is that, when it comes to what any of us read, have been told, or think that we know, it’s probably not very wise to tell yourself, that you are some kind of….

“April Who ?” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so it’s that time of year, where the first of the month is a time for tricks, or, what we have been lead to believe are, April Fools pranks and jokes….

Well, i’m a little more concerned about the issue of the foolish behaviour, and, fooling of people, that seems to be such a problem within humanity now, because it’s clearly foolish to believe in much that comes out of the media, and government mouths nowadays !

There are fools of all varieties in various places, and they are clearly not shy of exhibiting their foolishness.

I have recently had dealings with a Barbadian Lawyer, who shall remain nameless, who clearly thinks that she’s the smartest cookie, in a pack of nuts, because she’s clearly not as smart as she thinks, in terms of her ability to deceive, and to dupe people into believing her nonsense, so that she can get at their money.

SMH !!!

However, as said, fools like her, are just not worth the effort.

Lawyers are a breed who, generally like to play the fool, when it comes to their dealings with people, regarding money and property, and the list goes on with them, but who are they really fooling…

Clients or Themselves… ?

The idea of friendship too, breeds many a foolish decision, or act, when it comes to business, trust, and the belief that those you believe to be friends, will be there for you in the end, or will simply support you whilst you’re alive.

However, there are also people who seem keen to brandish others as being well, shady at best, when they actually aren’t quite as bad as they seem to believe ?

It’s so crazy to really see how foolish most people are, as you get older and wiser, and start to see things, and people for what they REALLY are, as opposed, to how you’d, LIKE To BELIEVE them to be.

This suitably segue ways to all these vaccines, and the prospect of a summer of things re-openiong, and passports to freedom, once you’ve been vaccinated.

However, the problem seems to be that, as medics and some scientists are suggesting, the prospect of all these variants, and, mutated strains of this Corona thing, becoming more and more advanced, and not necessarily being ever totally negated to the point where everyone can move freely in the knowledge that they can be fully immunised, or made safe from contracting a new strain, or, Corona Remix, as it were, of this disease, is far from certain.

It does seem a little foolish to believe, that things will suddenly be all good in the hood, once everyone, either gets tested, or is vaccinated, because as is readily being claimed now, the virus could return with serious venom, at any time ???

Life is throwing so many angles at people these days, that many are being quickly fooled into believing things, without any substance, to support what they are believing in, or buying into ?

It’s a dangerous time to be playing cards, without the deck being stacked in your favour, and it clearly isn’t wise to be taking risks with your life, for vaccination programmes, that are far from verified as being, totally safe !

I read today, that certain medics now believe that vaccination shots could in the future become, a very regular occurrence, to ensure that people cannot contract new variants of this flu, I mean, where does, or could this all end… ???

Will it ever end … ?

There are many things that are still very unclear, as to where this Corona Virus will steer humanity in the future, so, the re-opening of certain countries, doesn’t seem quite so sound a plan, when others, not so far away, are once again locking down, to apparently contain new variants of this virus, that clearly isn’t ready to go away just yet !

There are also, a few too many people in influential positions, who are neither, scientists or politicians, who are now using their fame, to enforce the movement to get those reluctant to get vaccinated, to do so, as if these people need to be encouraged to take a jab, because they are not thinking of others, or of their own futures. A future in a world where there is much uncertainty, from economic recoveries, to the gathering of crowds at events again, to new tech trends that may well fool us all into going to a place, where the little freedoms we once believed to be, ” Freedom “, become a distant thing of the past.

The internet is a place where people are fooled regularly now, but the bigger prospect of what big tech companies, and political factions may be planning for it’s usage, and restrictive powers, may be something that will create a whole legacy of things that may well do, much more than just restrict peoples freedom of speech.

It could, and already is being used to curb, freedom of monetary movement, with digital transfers becoming more and more prevalent, let alone the whole idea of what surveillance powers it may avail in the end, for those behind how it is used.

What purpose it will serve for them, and most importantly of all, for whom exactly ?

So this weeks drop, throws a little lyrical twist on the ideal that there is one day for people to be fooled, or to act like one.

April the 1st may be that day, however, my view on this is, just hold on for a minute, fools make foolish movements, every single day, somewhere in the world, every second of the day !!!

So, when it comes to the idea of being fooled, and by whom….

The question that enters my mind now, regarding this ideal…

Is ….

” 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 ?“
