“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…

” I’m The Cat WITHOUT The Hat ” …. A Poem written by Big Virge 22/11/2006

Well, as any good poet knows, ” Dr. Seuss “, ” Cat In the Hat “, type verse, is stuff you need to have at least read, ONCE, as it has touched millions of adults and children, across the globe, with it’s witty, clever, insight filled, rhyme schemes, that may have seemed, very basic and simple, but, ALWAYS offered a Pearl of Wisdom, somewhere within em’, so, as we are in the season of Festive Cheer ….

” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

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

Okay folks …..

It’s that time of the month for some, Big Virge, Poetic Stuff ….

I am a long way from home currently, but it seems that, after the Paris attacks, Gatwick Terror alerts, and more gun massacres in the US, that, reasonable thought processes are being forsaken for, ” Gung Ho’ type “, reactionary responses.

So, as The Pope has been doing his thing in Africa, and Trump doing has been doing his … i.e.

“Running His Gums” …. in the US …..

I’m wondering, where the logic and reason is …. in peoples rhetoric currently ???

Well, it’s time for some reason, Big Virge Styled, that defies all these extremist type attitudes, and I don’t mean, ISIS, ISIL or any other type of group who is deemed to be wreaking havoc across the globe right now …..

Those who know, KNOW, they are far from being the only terrorists out there, in this world of ours …..

I am currently in New Zealand, funnily enough, YET ANOTHER, British Colony, in a place called Queenstown, also like Barbados, to the locals, known as you guessed it …. Little England, due to the volume of Brits who now, live and work here, where, as a Zimbabwe born farmer told me….

“When they came here, the Brits were bloody stupid !!!”

…. when speaking about certain agricultural policies, that they rather foolishly employed, that when thought about, were quickly proven to be as stupid, as much that is being spouted currently, by them and their apparently, ” Special Friends “, across the water !?!

Well, having managed to gain a little Maori culture, in my first few days here, it only seems fitting that I should, this month, share a piece that shows how much respect I have, not only for the GREAT, All Black Rugby team and World Cup Winners for 2015, but also, a culture whose warrior spirit, deals in more than reactionary responses to war …..

Thus, here is a poem that touches on that, and much much … more … !!!

In a time where we are seeing people act in very, irrational ways ….

Take some time out to listen to some thoughts based on, as said ….

Sumthin’ more, than talk of ignorance, terror and war ……

“Denial” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

Oh and…. before anyone starts running the ….

“Oh, he’s obviously got a problem with gays !”, type rhetoric….

Well, this piece was actually written on the 29/06/2005

A whole 10 Years ago !

My position was clear then, as it is now, and much like all the other groups who are spoken about, within this piece, if they want to be accepted and treated EQUALLY, like everyone else ….

Well, accept that everybody ISN’T, necessarily down with the Gay Movement ….

and that some of us are not just gonna fall in line with the ….

“Oh, You’ve Gotta show support for the gays”, vibes, that are currently riding …

VERY HIGH …..

Anyway, let’s get to the bigger issue of denial in peoples’ attitudes ….

As the poem states, it is a BIG F’ing Problem …. and if you are one who takes offence to things you hear in this, well, you would seem to have a cap to wear that has on it’s peak, in …

BIG BOLD LETTERS

D E N I A L …..

Get over yourselves, and face what you know to be true, not only about yourself, but, more importantly, the world around you …..
