“Are You Ready ?” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So, as we get into the year, it’s pretty clear that a lot of things are gonna shock in the next few months, from ridiculous tax increases, like the apparent, 666 per cent tax rise on postal duties, now imposed by the Barbados government, which has then been accented, by PM Mia Mottley, who has then affirmed that there will most likely be, further tax increases, in the not too distant future.

There’s work being done where I reside currently, and it’s evident from speaking to one of the more proficient and skilled workers i’ve spoken to in Barbados, that, the levels of greed and the disparity between, what the rich and wealthy receive, not only in terms of treatment, but tax breaks, is growing in ways that, have clearly never been fair, and are now worsening.

A simple conversation with a taxi driver also affirmed that what is happening, not just in Barbados, but globally, is something people had better be prepared for, as things are indeed, about to become, very unbalanced, economically !

So, Boris is also exhibiting a wish to deal with things in his own, rather unbalanced way, from sending these Jamaican Criminals back home, even if it’s not legal, to funding things that he himself is suggesting will be costly and a little difficult !

Brexit whatever, going on, whilst the streets of England now keep proving that people clearly aren’t ready for what may attack from behind, or what they are likely to see amongst young people with grievances in the streets !!!

As said in my last post, the rise in anti-immigrant, essentially racist, political rhetoric, seems to be continuing to rise, and when the Church of England is being labelled as Institutionally Racist by The Archbishop of Canterbury, it should concern, regardless of whatever, apparent strides, are being made in the fake world of Hollywood, regarding diversity.

So, this weeks piece reflects on much of the hypocrisies, that clearly, lie behind Western Governance, from war to religion, to race, and a few bits more, but as with much that would appear to be on the way, from Africa to China, to the UK…..

My question is this …. ARE YOU READY …. ???

” So They Say ” … Prod by Strat Carter …

Well, the vibes are very PRO … The Ladies …these days now, aren’t they …. ???

Feminism movements on the rise, as well as, admissions of all kinds, from a lot of high flying, male executives, to the point where they are losing their jobs, or, at least walking, in certain cases, having had their fun, but NOW showing the remorse, and apparent conscience, that they had no problem ignoring, when they were doing, whatever they were doing to these ladies, that they apparently, shouldn’t of been …… !!!!!

Bad Boys … !!!!!
Bad Boys … !!!!!

Well, there are various sides to these types of stories, as I have found in my life, there most definitely, tend to be, with regard to ladies movements, especially those that have sexual connotations.

Of course, the smart men who want the puss to be all up in their world talking bout’

…. How they, “Love the way you connect with our movement !” …. type ish’, not realising that these smooth Mo Fo’s, be running game like we’ve always done, to get us some ….

Chris Rock drops some bombs about his previous marriage, in his stand-up show, ” Tambourine “, about how his own behaviour, of course, with … OTHER WOMEN …

Who, let me guess, had NO IDEA, that he was married, or, who the fuk he was … ?!!!?

Played their part in, his relationship’s demise !

Suffice to say, the point i’m making is that, hey, when it comes to matters of …..

Huh Hmmmm ….

” Relations ” ….

…. of varying degrees, between, women and men, both sexes need to hold our respective, hands up, and say ……

Hey, that’s some F’d up ish’, but we were both contributors to this bull …..

Men for well, being MEN … !!!!!

(Did u say what I did there ?
… think about it …)

and Ladies, well,

… for finding yourselves in, awkward scenarios, with, unwanted lotharios …. !!!
and for, blaming yourselves for things, which you clearly can’t blame yourselves for ……

Right ….. ???

(Did you see what I did there … ?
Man, it sucks to be honest sometimes !!! LOL !!!)

However, EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, for denying the truth, to the point where you then left other women to suffer, similar fates, due to your own fears and worries over …. careers etcetera …. ?!?

Let me AFFIRM that, I am also stating that, certain situations ….. are clearly beyond womens’ control, because some men are just, dangerous, deceitful asses, when it comes to their sexual wants and desires …. !!!!!

However, ladies, ladies ladies …..

You’re only now proving, how poor your decision making can be, when it comes to us guys, again, hate to say it, but y’all know it’s true, as do we, so be cool, and don’t get your knickers in a twist because of real lyrics ….

Like those that are in this month’s Big Virge Verse, put to music ……

Mister Strat Carter, was in a very creative mode, when he made this track off the, Virges’ World album debut …..

Check it out …..

From … ” Harmful ” … Hands … !!!!!

UNITE … Humans …
From … DIFFERENT Strands …

” The Game’s ” … to … PLAY

Systems … ” Built ” …
to CONTROL … Wills …

Than … Years before … !!!

So Now the … HOARDS …
APPLAUD … ” The Cause ” …

But REALLY … ” aren’t sure ” … ?!?
What they’re … Clapping For … !?!

Because they … ” Choose ” …
to … AIR … The View …

That ……

“Everything’s cool, but i’m feeling you !”

“If you’re feeling me ?
Do something dude,
and face what’s true !
Then maybe we,
can see less bleed,
and more succeed in
finding peace !”

Less room for … “greed” …
and … “Fallacies” …

MORE SPACE for … Plates …
and … Equality …

So that … ONE DAY …
We ALL … Can Feed …

” Our Family ” …..

HUMANITY ….. !!!

I speak sometimes …
Within … my rhymes …

About … UNITY …
But right now it’s … EQUALITY …
I’m trying to … GET … !!!

cos’ it …. seems to me …

If … I’ve got … ONE …
and You’ve got … ONE …

What we fighting for … ?!?
We’re both still … POOR … !!!

Did …
That Line …. STUN … !?!

Were you thinking … GUN … ?!?

See ….
That’s the thing ….

It’s our … ” Thinking ” …
That … NEEDS TO … Equate …

So that Balance is … DISPLAYED …
in … ALL OUR WAYS … !!! …

Now that’s … PRETTY DEEP …
EVEN for … Me … !!!!!

“Whoa, now i’m SCARED !”

So I think that’s where …
I’ll let … My Pen …
Now Find … The End …

MORE TIME for … Patience ………
Less spent on … ” Ignorance ” … !!!!!

MORE … Upliftment … !!!!!
Less time for … “despair” …

MORE … Commitment … !!!!!
Less … “I Don’t Care” …

Less thoughts of … “Hate” …
and division of … Race … !!!!!

Less …
LUST for … ” Fame ” …
and a … ” Blinged’ Out ” … Range … !!!!!

What More … can I say … ?

Cos’ there … HAS TO BE …

” A BETTER WAY ” ……. !!!!!!!

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….

“Evolvers” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 9/9/2013

Ya know ….

I’m down with … Problem Solvers … !!!
NOT THOSE … who use … Revolvers … !!!!!

By this I mean … ” Evolvers’ ” … !!!!!

“Logical” … Thinkers … !!!
who … DON’T Wear … BLINKERS … !!!

“Evolved” … like … ” Incas ” … !!!
who … “Peruse” … The View …
“From” …. “Machupicchu” … hues …
to blues now seen ….
in … ” New Age Crews ” … !!!!!

NOT … SO Evolved … !!!!!

NOPE …
would seem … NOT … !!!!!!!

“Problems” … Up Top …
“Evolution” …. dropped ….
for … ” Dropping Bombs ” … !!!

“Inhumane” … wrongs …
as wrongs ….. move on …..
and become … ” More Strong ” … !!!!!

I Evolve … to belong …
where wrongs … ” ABSCOND ” … !!!!!

because … what … ” Evolves ” …
are thoughts that … ” Revolve ” …

on ….. ” Cerebral Planes ” …..

Do you get what i’m saying … ?!?

Higher levels of … ” Being ”
where there is … ” No Ceiling ”

A place where … ” Believing ”
that ….. ” HIGHER ACHIEVING ”
is something …. ” ALL PEOPLE ”
are seeing ….. Each Evening ….. !!!!!

and …
Each Day … ” Receiving ”
…. “Within” ….

” ALL THEIR ” … Teachings … !!!!!

“Darwinism” …. REMOVED …. !!!
and … ” EUGENICS ” … Too … !!!!!

Instead … Stronger Movements … !!!!!
are things I be … ” Choosing ” …
to be a … ” Good Student ” … !!!
who … ” Evolves ” …

with MORE … ” Prudence ”
than … ” IGNORANT ” … Tutors … !!!!!!

See …
Evolution of … ” words ”
I put into …. ” VERSE ”
“Evolve’ … where things … ” Work ”

Even if …
They may … ” HURT ” … !!!!!

because of their … ” CLARITY ”
Revolving round … ” REALITY ”

Reality …. where …. ” VANITY ”
Denies … So Many … ” CHARITY ”

The type where people
….. RISE ABOVE …..

These acts of … “Evil” …
and show …. ” LOVE ” …. !!!!!

Instead of …. All This ….

” SELF-ABSAORBED ” … stuff … !!!

It’s CLEAR …
some have … ” evolved ”
just … far enough …
for them to … ” Absolve ”
their acts of …. ” LUST ” …. !!!!!

LUST for … Each Other …
Ahead of … Their Mothers … !!?!!

LUST for … ” Destruction ” … !!!!!
of our … Fellow Brothers …
when we … NEED … ” Constructions ”
That BUILD … and DON”T … “smother”

A way to … ” AGREE ” …
and EVOLVE … to be …

….. ” FREE ” ….. !!!!!

and find ….. ” UNITY ”
that … BYPASSES … Hatred …
in … Vapid Type … Racists … !!!
with … ” Klan Type ” … beliefs … !!!!

They NOW …
Have … ” Evolved ”
“Beyond” … Their White Sheets

It seems that their … ” Offspring ”
Now … ” RUN ” … companies … ?!?

where … colours are … ” Mixed ”
“Dissolving” … to … “FIT” …
in with … ” These Racists ” … !!!!!

NO ….

“Evolving” … THERE … !!!

because most are … ” Scared ” … !!!!!
to … Evolve … to that place …
where they’re … NOT AFRAID … !!!!!

to face … ” Retributions ”
for YES … ” Contributing ”
to such … ” Revolutions ”
that are … ” Evolutions ”

to finding … ” SOLUTIONS ”
that … INSPIRE … ” Movements ”

for …. ” EQUALITY CALLS ”
that … Benefit … ” ALL ” … !!!!!!

The Rich … and the … Poor …
cos’ … that gap … FOR SURE …

” Evolves ” … to … Ensure
That … We Can’t … ” IGNORE ”
These things … ” ANYMORE ” … !!!!!!

“Dissolving” … The Void ………………………………

where we have … ” Unemployed ”
Might Help … some … ” Evolve ”
from … Trying to … ” ROB ” … !!!

But that … ” Evolution ” …
Is NEEDED … ” In Boardrooms ”

Don’t get it … ” Confused ” … ???
to … ” EVOLVE ” …

THEY NEED TOO … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Greed Driven” … Villains … !!!!!
who … Clearly … Aren’t Pilgrims ”
who live by a … ” Faith ” …
That FEEDS … ” Empty Plates ”

They’d say that … “They Do !”
but … is that … ” The Truth ”

I don’t have an answer … ?!?
That Question’s for … YOU … !?!

Those now … ” EVOLVED ”
to think past … ” Themselves ”

who … Do Not … INVOLVE … !!!

“Pursuit” … of … Mass Wealth
as … part of the … ” Well ”
….. where their …..
” BETTERMENT ” … Dwells … !!!!!

Knowledge of … ” Self ”
that … ” Uplifts ” … The Mental

A form of … ” Self Help ”
that … ” TRULY IS ” … Central
to … ” Human Infusion ” …
of … what should be … L O O S E N E D … !!!

Our … Hold of … ” Confusion ”
that leads to … ” Contusions ”
Persecutions … ” Exclusions ”
and movements so … ” GRUESOME ”

That … they seem …

” INHUMAN ” …. !!!!!!!

The words i’m now … Choosing
DO NOT FEED … Illusions … !!!

” Upliftment’s ” … BRUISING … !!!
has left … MANY … Losing …

A hope for … ” Inclusion ”
and some … ” Distribution ”
of more than … ” Sweet Talk ” …
from …tongues shaped like … FORKS … !!!!!
that … KEEP FUELLING … ” Wars ” … !!!!!!

So ….
Here’s My … ” Conclusion ”

It’s time for … ” SOLUTIONS ”
that … STOP … ” Destitution ”
and REMOVE … What’s Polluting …
Humanities’ … movements …
Towards some … ” Improvements ”

where LESS … are … “colluding”
to seeing … MORE SHOOTINGS … ?!?!?

INSTEAD …. ” Resolutions ”
that … Provide … ” Solutions ”

That …

REJECT … Revolvers …
…. ” Suicide Bombers ” …. !!!!!!!!

and …
Moods that are … ” Sombre ”

May see … ” Problem Solvers ”

be the ones …
who we choose …

to … INSPIRE …

…. ” Evolvers’ ” ….

“Evolvers” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People ….. !!!

Having had a very calm, and quiet festive, after my …

Adventurous December … !!! … to, Pacific Coastlines and Landscapes, my first poetic offering of the year, is hopefully as inspiring, as it is, thought provoking ….

But in a more, PROGRESSIVELY EVOLVED Manner, than much that has been happening over the last few weeks …. !!!

From Paris to Nigeria bombings, to, US Madness, of a judicial & violent nature, to the, let’s say, not so evolved rhetoric, coming from the likes of Donald Trump, and his competition for the Whitehouse seat !!!!!

Anyway, from top to bottom, this is now, one of my favourites, and covers much that has occurred, and seemingly continues to occur within the ecology of Human Development …..

Take time with this one folks … !!!!!

because ….

Even if the word, ” Evolvers “, doesn’t actually exist in the Oxford, Posh Dictionary, it’s now, one of MY OWN, and what it’s inspired, reflects on much that happens in this crazy world of ours ….

Everyday …..

BELIEVE IT … !!!!!
