“Calm” … Prod by Chris Peden

So folks, as the release of the EP approaches, here’s my Favourite track of the four to be initially released from the, On The Virge Album, which will follow in 2019

In times where tensions are running pretty high, politically, socially and in peoples’ general attitudes to one another, this is pertinent subject to present artistically.

Territory issues, Personal and otherwise !
Certain vibes need to just ease down………..

So, as the track says, i’d rather see more of this, than all the other Pish’ going on right about now !!!

So, check it out …..
and remember to …. KEEP YOUR ….

“The Intellect” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay Folks, so, hope all is well with ya !

These days, with this OVERLOAD of news, fake and true, it’s becoming very difficult to stay focussed on current events, because there really is so much going on !!!

Suffice to say, my observations remain as they’ve always been, too much talk from political whatevers’, and the subsequent ignorance, and insanity, that now seems to ensue from these individuals words, in those who choose to embrace ideals that continue to prove that the idea of voting for leaders to run, COMPLETELY CORRUPTED Systems, is proving to be a less than a shrewd endeavour.

Oh and before anyone gets on their high horse about options… ???

Well, as many are saying now, who really knows what the repercussions may be from embracing outside help for, internal problems !?!

The economic system is broken, and may well get much worse, if this Brexit’ issue causes the chaos that many seem to now be BELIEVING to be likely,

Who THE FUCK KNOWS … ?!?

However, what many of us, DO KNOW NOW, is that for all the talk of positive economic shifts, who exactly now is claiming that ???

Huh … ?
… are you able to say that nothing is a problem, financially now ?

Well, if you can, can you let the rest of us in on your secret then ???

…. because it seems as though the squeeze is on for many currently, from a financial perspective, and that common sense is beginning to reign in brains, when it comes to how they maintain themselves, and more importantly, their children future.

It’s a tough time across the globe, conflict brewing in Ukraine, Wild Fires washing away the Rich Folks home in of all places, a place named … ” PARADISE ” … !!!

Donald is just … Being DONALD … !!!

and Police are now taking FLYING KICKS in the streets from the youth, before we get to the usual number of shootings, that are now those of Legally Armed Blacks, and of course the MISTAKEN identity ish’, as well as banks calling the Po Po on Rap Millionaires for them to be accosted by their own BIG RIDES in the car park … !?!

Just CRAZINESS as ever, so maybe people could just TRY to show a lil’ COMMON SENSE, before, as per a recent incident in Barbados, picking a fight with the WRONG GUY !!!!!!

So, this month’s offering from me deals in using and BETTER Still, RESPECTING …

The Intellect !!!!

So, take a listen and ….
Come on folks, slow ya roll, and keep your heads out there yeah !
Blessings and Guidance to One and ALL …..

” Virgelements ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So how’s the world treating you people ?!?

Hopefully better than those in Florida who had to deal with a very different version of Valentines’ Day attention !!!!!

Funny how the word, ” Terrorism “, has not been applied to this individual’s act, wouldn’t you say ???

An act that he made, which appears, in no small way, to have been due to his following of, some quite clearly, extreme RIGHT WING (i.e. Fascist & Racist) views, that surely, within reason, could be defined as hate filled ?!?

Thus, this could be defined as a HATE CRIME, however, the subject of discussion has immediately swayed to, Gun Control, Hmmm …..

How about applying such attitudes to say … Bombs …

Bomb Controls …. ???

and I don’t mean those of a Nato type, which reminds me, Oxfam aren’t exactly as sweet as the wrapper appears, go look at what their emissaries have been dealing in … Fa F’ks sake … !!!

Anyway back to it,

Racism ….. ???

Racism Controls, which, as ridiculous an idea as it seems, might actually hinder people from making acts of this kind …

Maybe in the instance of a defined, Hate Crime, some Capital Punishment …. !?!

Well, the world turns and people get theirs, while others suffer, or sadly, die !

Today has seen the conviction of two SICK Whatevers …. ????

…. for their Paedohpile Abuses, a scholar of sorts, and a football coach in the UK.

The latter, who has something like 80 victims with more coming out ….
I mean SERIOUSLY …… ?!?

Words cannot express the level of disgust such things stir in me, especially when, in these cases, they’ve long since, got away with their wickedness, whilst the victims are forced to live with the nightmare, one, who it was stated, had an operation to stop him having children because of his fear of not being able to protect any that he may have had ….

As said, crazy ish folks, NASTY F’kd up and CRAZY !!!!!

However, life goes on right, Donald continues on his merry way, basically, ” Trumpifying’ “, anything he can, before the powers above him, feel that he needs to be reigned in some …..

So, in the spirit of Trump type glorification of oneself ….

This month’s little sumthin’ is named after me …..

The subject matter, like last month’s piece, is all encompassing, and relevant, in many ways, to much happening these days …..

So, check out some …. Virgelements’ ….

That’s right ……. VIRGELEMENTS folks ……. !!!!

Wanna know more, take a listen …..

Stay safe and be cool out there folks, people have never been easy, and most are making things, even more difficult than usual right about now ……

Peace and Guidance ….

The Virge Out.

” Status Quo ” … as I believe he indicated,
that Hilary C, would of maintained…..

Errr Hmmmm …..

Someone needs …
Some … ” Recompense “…

Right now … it’s …
… A Family …

” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???

Today, the indication is that there will be a new Italian PM, in 2017 ???

A lot of footballers are coming to the table, to expose the incredible levels of apparent, player abuse by British coaches !!!!!

Right wing movements across Europe, bar Austria, of all places, are on the go, and seemingly, on the rise …..

(A third of Austria’s populous voting for a Far Right group, should not though, be overlooked !)

Racism is definitely on the go, as ever, and immigration may well be the next thing to go, in terms of borders being open, to those escaping Syria in particular, but, I think that this is an excuse to keep more than Syrians, or more importantly, Muslims out of Europe …. and if Trump has his way, out of America too …..

Fidel gone, so who knows where Cuba will end up, in the coming months and years ???

Oh and just one quick mention of the case that has, somehow, found it’s way to being a mistrial … ?!?

…. that of, the shooting of Walter Scott by a certain, Officer Slager, as described in the piece, Open Season, which I posted recently …..

Looks like Officer Slagers’ case will be, yet another, to go on the list of cases against the police, that have left the victims family without any sense of justice, or respect for the fact, that, their loved one was essentially, gunned down in cold blood, by one charged with the duty to … ” Serve & Protect ” …

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

So many things going on …..

I figure that it’s time for me to explain and show, some of the places that I have been and will continue to …. Go …….

So, here are some of the places that ……..

Lest we forget …. “Open Season” … written by Big Virge 9/4/2015

Well ……..
It seems it’s … OPEN SEASON …

for … MURDEROUS … Policing … !?!

NO MORE …
will blacks take … Beatings … !!!

Police will leave us … Bleeding … !!!
while they … KEEP ON … receiving …
PROTECTION … for yes … leaving …

Blacks with …

NO PULSE or … FEELING … !!!
In Fact … NO LONGER … Breathing.

and then …..
comes … ” Court Proceedings ” …
that leave black people … ” SEETHING ” … !!!!!!

Well fine it’s … OPEN SEASON …
for poetry … now … Seeking …………………………………………………….

Some TRUTH …
and less … Deceiving … !!!

See ….
I’m Incredibly … not shocked …
at how … poor … ” Walter Scott ” …

got shot by …
some … white cop …

when Walter … tried to run …
from this … Policeman … SCUM … !!!!!

But ……
before I … move along …

He may well have done wrong … ?!?
but … ” Officer Slager ” …
Let Off … EIGHT SHOTS …
in … Walters’ BACK … !?!!!? …

Let me just …. ” back track ” …..

He shot … ” EIGHT TIMES ” …
Taking … ” HIS LIFE ” … !!!!! …

Because ………….
said … SLAGER …

” He feared for his safety
because Mr. Scott, tried to
grab his Taser ! ”

So …
That means … WHAT … ?!?

He … Deserved to be shot …
EIGHT TIMES … in his … BACK … !?!!!?!

Maaaaannnnn ….

ENOUGH … of this CRAP … !!!!!

What kind of Policing … ?!?
gives Policeman teachings …
of … SHOOT TO DEATH … !!!!

Rather than … ” A Leg ” …

Shoot … BOTH …
… if ya like … !!!!!

But …..
ENOUGH … of these vibes …
where Black People … DIE … !!!!!!

Husbands and Wives …
whose Fam’ … are told … LIES … !!!!!
about … Cop … HOMICIDES … !!!!!!

So let me …

Season and OPEN ………………………………….
how people are …. Bro Ken …
and Blacks are just … ” Tokens “…
for them to be … ” Quoting ” …
all kinds of … DUMB THINGS … !!!!!!

About …

… Po’ Po’ …
… Shootings ….

An … Asian dude …
who went to … my school
posted … one day …

on my …
Facebook Page …

“Blacks need to be wise
when police are in sight,
and not antagonise,
cos that’s how they’ll die !”

Yeah THIS … Indian Guy …
felt he had … The Right …
to tell me … ” Why ” …
Police TAKE … Black Lives … ?!!!?

cos’ we ….

” DON’T ACT RIGHT !!! ”

Well YEAH … sometimes ….
but being … SHOT TO DEATH …
goes BEYOND …. NONSENSE … !!!!!

but ……
Asians like … HIM …
Prove that being … “submissive” …
is how … Most Choose … to live …
and how … Most Seem … to think … !?!

How many … Asian girls …
and I … DON’T MEAN … Orientals … !!!

have been … ” Experimental ” … ???

when it comes to … Black Men …
being in their worlds …
as the … FATHERS OF …

….. Their Children ….. ?!?

It’s CLEAR ….
from their … ” Caste System ” …
that … Inter-Racial Teams …
are …. Rarely EVER … seen … !!!

Unless their partner’s …
….. ” White ” ….. ?!?

Most Asians ….
Don’t Trust … blacks …
and that is simply … FACT …

In Fact …
Some do believe …
that blacks are just … MONKEYS … ??!??

Check through their … “History ” …
Such words … AREN’T FALLACY … !!!!!!!!!!

When we now … ” Greet Police ” …

Should blacks … IMMEDIATELY … ?
get down upon our knees …

and BEG … like …

… ” Slavery Scenes ” …

“Please Massa’, don’t shoot me !”

which leads me to …
… These Blacks …

Whose uniform’s now …
…. ” Packed ” ….

to join these …
… Police Klans … !!!!!!!

What have they … ” Changed ” …
in … Policing ways … ?!!!? …

” Not A Lot ” … !!!!!! …

Ask … ” Walter Scott ” … ???

Well sadly now …

You … CAN’T DO THAT … !!!!!!

because what is … FOUL …
is … THIS HERE FACT … !!!!!

while Walter died
and lied … FACE FLAT …

A cop who was … BLACK … !!!
seemed to search Mr. Scott …
as if … He’d … STILL ATTACK … ?!!!?

and then …
let this … white cop ..
treat him … LIKE HIS DOG …. !???!

I’m …
SICK … of the … CRAP … !!!!!!
now coming from … Blacks … !!!!!!!

Will they wanna … Shoot ME … ?!?
for this … REAL POETRY … !?!

See it’s been …

….. OPEN SEASON …..
for … QUITE SOME TIME … !!!!! …

cos’ ….
Black folks be … ” submissive ” …
as if they’ll face … ” A Lynching ” … !!!

for .. BREATHING …
and NOT … ” Flinch-ing ” … !!!!!

when … Po Po lights …
Start …. Blinking …. !!!!!!!

which right now …
gets me thinking …

that … ” William Lynch ” …
is looking down and saying …

“Look at these Black Clowns !”

Folks ….
This here … AIN’T …

” 12 Years A Slave ” …

This shooing happened …
…. ” YESTERDAY ” …. !!!!!!!!

In ….
South Carolina ….
where that PIG …
has been … Fired … !!!

But ….
Without … ” The Footage ” …
would he still be out … SHOOTING … !!! ? !!!

See i’m …
a man of … ” Reason ” …

but right now …
I’M SEETHING … !!!!!

because ….
when it comes to ….

… KILLING BLACKS …

It’s …..

” Open Season ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

Hmmmm ….

Well, Olympics or not !!!!!

COME ON Usain …. !!!!!!

Certain subjects, Nah get dropped …. !!!!!

The cops and this whole …
Black Lives Matter Phenomena ….

Well,

Opinions are a plenty fa sure … !!!!!

So, of course, I have a few ………….

However, this piece was written soon after, the ….. (not so much mentioned) ….. Walter Scott EXECUTION, by some extraordinarily, ” Trigger Happy “, cop !?!?!

Anyhow, much surrounds these events, like different attitudes that come to light from people, of course, from races not directly affected by these horrendous killings of people, who, innocent or not, don’t get a chance to explain themselves to anybody but ….

Well …..

BULLETS, or the apparently, ” Humane Hands “, of law enforcement officers …. !! ? !!

Crazy ish’ people ….. ?!?

…. and of course, London now increasing it’s armed police presence, coincidentally, days before an incident in Russell Square, and a Black Lives Matter protest, that affected people trying o get to Heathrow, for a number of personal reasons on Friday morning ….

NOT …. !!!

…. the subtlest way to get your message heard, but, it has drawn media attention, so, England ISN’T, quite the bed of tolerance and unified thinking, as has been so readily reported, and argued …. since the arrival of people of different races, to basically, every arena in which the media presents itself, sports and EVEN, politics, so, things are fine right … ?!?

Weellllllll …..

Maybe not, if todays protest suggests there to be things, to be concerned about ???

The subsequent, television coverage, had an interview was with an activist, who was an articulate young lady, who was explaining that, although killings of the style in the US, are honestly, not so prevalent ….. in the UK …..

Smaller country, different laws ….. etcetera etcetera ….

Convictions in the instances of police inefficiency, which results in loss of black lives, are basically, non-existent, and have been, for a considerable time now ….

So, more armed police will result in what, exactly, less gun play … ???

I think NOT, but, time will tell ……

and one final thing here, with regard to policing globally, i’m talking the extreme cases of loss of life, but, let’s not pretend that general interactions with police are being run with the professionalism, and, public courtesies, that people should expect from those who apparently …. SERVE US …. ?!!!?

The ideal of how people are stereotyped by colour, also lends itself to a very subtle, but effective, form of white superiority and control ….

So …. do ….. ???

White Glass Ceilings exist still …. ???

…. in the hierarchies of these arenas where people of varying, darker skinned races, are now seemingly, “Fitting in”, quite nicely, and doing good things …….

Just questions … ???

However, there are divisions within those same, different shades, that aren’t always so readily brought to light, because of again, the veneer of … well ….

” Getting Along ” ……

Well, as a man who has grown with all types of races, nationalities & colours, which applies to the ladies too, there are certain mixtures that aren’t so common ….

Not ReeeeeEALLY’ …

…. but people just play it down, because sticking to ones’ own, is the way to go …..

Really … ???

… with so many varieties in the world to choose from …

Not everyman wants a … BIG BOOTY, or, fair-skinned, SAME SKINNED … !!! … ting’, to get his groove on with, as with the ladies now clearly.

So, don’t, for one second.

…. think that words you hear, indicate a man who does not see the positive effects of integration, from business, to personal interactions now, however, things in essence, remain at the core, the same …. and do need to be, i’d say, ” Re-Arranged “, just a bit ……

and one of the things at the top of my list, is the subject of the lyrics in this poem …..

So, as the Olympics get in full swing, with it’s opening ceremony today in Rio …..

There are a few things that are … Open …
right about now,

So, I warn you, NOW …

DO NOT ….

…. press play, unless you’re ready to deal with REAL subject matter …. that’s leaving lives SHATTERED …. !!!!!

While …..

#BlackLivesMatter …… ???

“Poets Corner” … An Interesting show folks ….

Some discussion and verse, and quite a bit more …….

Worth a listen people …..

And so, the Fukry’ begins … written by Big Virge 23/11/2015

So, off on my travels to, far away lands, but wait ….

Oh Noooooo …. Paris attacks and the Terrorism Hoopla, begins …. !!!!!

Well, I am now able to edit what I started to write in November, due to an enormity of media rhetoric about the terrorism of differing kinds, in Paris, Gatwick, Colorado, San Bernardino, Leytonstone, in London, and, of course, the Presidential Election campaign for 2016, with DT …. The Trumpster’, running his gums about anything and everything, to garner attention, and I dare say, to stir up controversy, that will not only garner him support, but also, some vitriol, that will keep his name in the news, which i’m sure, in his mind, will aid his campaign to run America ….

…. but …. before all that

After plane parking issues in Bim’, it seems that The USA, in this case, Miami, is holding landed planes, for no apparent reason ???

One has to wonder whether this is due to the recent, Paris Situation ?

Well, it’s hard to believe that it isn’t, in some way, due to recent events across the water !?!

I had booked my trip essentially, some time before the bombing, and wouldn’t of changed my plans because of it, but, here is where the effects of said, ” Paris Incident ” …. would seem to be, already taking their toll on the … Oh So Righteous …. US of A !!!!!

God blessed right ?!?

Well obviously, not so much that visitors can get in and out of the airport they land in, without delays, where little to nothing is conveyed to passengers, as to why ?!?

Of course, Miami, is a good spot for illegals to try coming into America, but for crying out loud !!!!!

If the country is God Blessed, then surely they shouldn’t be so worried about a few illegals, who, with the Holy blessing, that America has in it’s back pocket, would surely not be given such a blessing, if they were terrorists right ???

I’m being trite !!!!

Innocent people are dying, excuse me, being terrorised, murdered & killed …. !!!!!

Hmmm … sound like anything that has been going on in America, to seemingly, a pre-dominance of black folks, at the hands of Government backed, gun tooting police, who, if they can’t shoot ya, just choke men to death !!!!!!

Okay, some who were doing things they maybe, shouldn’t of been, but hey, these things happen everyday right, from street corners to the corridors of power right …. ???

Alright then, moving on ……

If … Intelligence, is supposedly going to high alert levels, well,
bloody well act like it … !!! … and let people know what’s going on !!!!!

No word from the captain, just that we’re being held due to there being, no space for our plane to park at the gate that should of been free !!!!

Hmmmm …. funny how the same issue seems to have been on repeat for the flights ahead of us !!!!!

As for the usual line of ..,. ” Not wanting to panic people … “, well, it certainly doesn’t stop, media outlets from doing it, as soon as any form of ” apparent ” …. attack, is made by, ” Islamic Fundamentalists “, even if the facts have not been, fully established ?!?

It’s Friday night and I for one, for a change, would really like to get to customs, so that I can enjoy my stop in Miami !!!!!

Well finally, some NINETY minutes after arriving, it seems that, all is well, and we are allowed off, however, it is clear that quite a few passengers have been delayed long enough for them to have missed their connecting flights, one of whom, happened to be, Ex- West Indies, International Cricketer, Gordon Greenidge !!!!!

… who happened to be sitting, a couple of rows in front of me !!!

I had to look at him a few times before recognising that it was one of my childhood heroes, who was traveling on the same flight !

Unassuming, and clearly not wishing to be noticed, I waited until we crossed paths in the baggage hall, to ask the question, and then get a photo, which he was thankfully, willing to do, even if somewhat reluctantly !

He was far from talkative but I respected the fact that he wanted it that way, and had to respect the fact that he was probably pissed at missing his flight to Texas !!!

Anyway, off to get my shuttle and my first, of quite a few hotels on this extensive trip to the other side of the world …… and finally, first destination reached, it was my time to see what Miami has to offer !!!!!

More instalments to come …… as the fukry’, in terms of world events, it would seem …..

Begins ……. !!!!!
