“Need” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay so, quick question folks !

If the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few !
What exactly is the deal with this Corona Flu … ???

Huh…. HUH …. ?!?

Well, it would seem that the need for certain things is diminishing, however, only for other needs to be fulfilled !!!

Thus, the need for full blown lockdowns is easing, however, this is due to an apparent need to restart the global economy !!!

This, now being placed above peoples health, when their is no cure, or, accurate way to precisely diagnose the causes, and therefore the possible recurrence of this, ” Virus “, from happening, which in turn, opens the door for the continued threat of this global pandemic resurfacing, just as quickly as it came ???

Does none of this seem strange to people …. ???

Like … NOT AT ALL … !?!

Well, people need to remember how this affected us all, before accepting new strategies that humanity again, apparently needs ?

…. like, over zealous police, apps that now, track and map those who’ve got, or, had the virus !!!!

… Or is that to just, TRACK PEOPLE … ?!?

Think on that ones folks ………

There are lots of cloaks and daggers being brandished at the moment, like those surrounding vaccines, and road tests that don’t exactly seem to be quite as, fully operational, in the way that they should be, especially in England ?!?

I am also hearing of people going to what seem like, very scarcely populated hospitals … ?!?

Hmmm, and yet doctors are OVERRUN, to the point where some are taking their own lives … ???

Doesn’t seem right somehow, as it doesn’t, that, LITRES of oxygen were used to help Bojo’ Johnson to get back on his feet !!!

So, essentially, that oxygen which could have helped, MORE VULNERABLE people, was given to him, why because he’s PM … ???

Well at least we know whose important and needed, and who simply isn’t now !

Industries like the airline industry are no longer quite so important to guys like, Billionaire Warren Buffet anymore, as he has made an early declaration, that the travel industry is about to be shaken up, and not in ways that make it easy to make profits, so, funds and investments have been withdrawn post haste, again, apparently ……

However, certain airline heads have merely suggested that there’ll now be a need for, ” CREATIVE Pricing Strategies ” … ???

…. which in my version of their language, simply means radical price increases for flights, as if being quarantined, for days at an end in airports, isn’t gonna be bad enough !!!

Well, with all this going on, it’s time for the world to get back to work, in this new age of slavery !!!!

Yeah I said it, people being tagged by apps, working and schooling being conducted online, and even, staggered time zones for age groups to move around, as will be the case in Spain !!!

However, already, the media is reporting of issues, relating to the easing of lockdown measures, which in Spain, as well as Germany, are already being touted as causing, mini resurgences of new infections, so, who knows what the next level of apparent societal needs, will be, that are imposed on people … ???

It’s such a crazy time in human history that this weeks Big Virge verse, speaks on the vital subject of what humanity and the world as a whole, according to the powers that be, will now most definitely …

Corona Series Pt. 7… “Now They’ll Begin But Where Will They End ?“ … A Poem written by Big Virge 3/4/2020

Well It Was A Matter of Time …
Before Some Minds Would Eventually Find …
Conspiracy Vibes About The Design of This Corona Line …

Probably Because They MISSED The Signs …
That Have Been Quite Clear For A Number of Years …
The Spreading of Fear Has Been Well Steered Into Minds And Ears …

Since 9/11 and 7/7 … !!!

TERROR THIS And TERROR THAT … !!!

Have Lead Us To This Corona Trap … !!!
Conspiracies Mapped To EXPOSE FACTS …

Or … Have They … ?!?

Well It Seems Today That Terror’s Been Replaced …
By Corona Strains … ALL OVER The Place … !!!

So Many Claims From Famous Names …
To Those Who Run The Political Game…

That Now … DICTATES …
A Need For Us ALL To … ISOLATE … !!!

Police States Are Now In Play And Now Doctors Face …
A Torrential Rain of Virus Pain That Will Be INSANE … !!!

Well … So They Say … ?!?

While Others Are Now Saying Something’s FOUL … !!!
Because They’ve Snuck Out To Look Around Town …
And To See The Crowds Bringing Hospitals Down …

But What They Found Were NOT Hospitals Drowned …
In Fact What They Saw Was … NO-ONE Around … ?!?

So Now The Doubt Is … Internet Bound … !!!
Where Conspiracies Abound From Different Mouths …

And Cameras Too WITHOUT Camera Crews …
Just Individuals Who Are Trying To Prove …
That There Are No Queues For Hospital Rooms … !!!

There Is NO PANIC Just Government Static … !!!
And A Lot of Lies From … Media Guys …
And Those With Ties To These Government Guys … !!!

Well Folks Need To Be WISE Into What They Buy … !!!

Because Loss of Life Is Really NOT NICE … !!!
And What You Spread Online May Come Back To BITE … !?!
If What You Provide Is Proved NOT To Be Right …
And Then The Internet Police Are Made To Curb Your Speech …

I Dunno Sometimes How We Humans Survive … ?!?
With So Many Fork Tongues … IGNORANCE And PRIDE … !!!

Especially Now In These Corona Times …
Conspiracy Vibes Will Now Ride High …
As People Die And LOSE Their Lives …

Well It Seems A Bit Late Now That Laws Dictate …
That You Need To Stay …
Inside of Your Place And To … ISOLATE … !!!

When Chasing Pay And Stuff That’s INSANE …
Has Paved The Way For How Humans Behave …

It’s All A Game of Infecting Our Brains …
So Be Careful What It Is …
That You Choose To Enlist …
To Believe As Being … ” TRUE “…
Especially If It CAN’T Be PROVED … !!!

Because Now Conspiracies …
Will Start To Breed On Internet Feeds …
That Claim That We Are Now Being Deceived …

By … GOVERNMENTS …
So … USE Your HEADS …
When It Comes To Trends …
That Conspiracies Defend …

Because ……

“ Now They’ll Begin
But Where Will They End ? “

“Illusions” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, first things first ….

The Don gets off !

No impeachment, so, once again it’s, off to the Whitehouse races, for one of the most, polarising leaders of modern history.

Well, as per previous posts, i’m not surprised, due to the fact that, in my view, it’s an illusion to believe that any part of the legal system is truly what it claims to be.

So, this leads me to the rise in right wing movements in Europe, and clearly beyond, in terms of Trumps America !!!

Immigration restrictions increased to limit, Nigerian, Eritrean, Sudanese and Tanzanian Nationals from entering America.

Thus, it’s no surprise that parties like the AfD in Germany, Vox in Spain, and The League in Italy, are making strides towards increasing their followings !

The illusion of separation between parties, has also been exposed in recent years, especially with these, so called liberals.

So, it’s again, no surprise to find that, this week in Germany, Thomas Kemmerich, an apparently Liberal politician, has been found to be benefitting from alliances with right wing groups to gain a share of power, which is no different to the recent coalition between the Liberals and Conservatives in the UK, in recent times, and so on !

So, quickly over to South Africa, to the disturbing news of illegal minors being killed and left in the street, which isn’t so uncommon, as the reports suggest that 60 die EVERY DAY in South Africa, so it’s a big illusion that the new, Post Apartheid South Africa, is really, that much better than the old !

We’re in a time where Democratic Politicians, who apparently, can claim to be the, middle of the road thinkers, are no longer approved of, by their die hard followers, from Corbyn in the UK, to the Democrats in America.

So, there are quite a few illusions in society that are being exposed for what they truly are, like the Phillip Schofield confession to actually being gay, even though building the facade of being a family man with a wife and children, over many years, which just goes to show that, living a lie, isn’t alien to famous people, and the dangerous part of such deceptions, is that when it comes to legal proceedings that involve, royalty, or these incredibly wealthy guys, there are numerous falsehoods and illusions that surround them ….

So, this weeks piece looks into some of these …..

“Gifted” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as the season of gift giving, and good will, is the flavour still …..

Here’s a lil’ lyrical gift for the season from Big Virge

” I’m Used To Them Now ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well folks,

It’s that time again, and after the weekend I’ve had, this is the perfect tune to drop ….

It truly is incredible how fast some people can be online, or in text, with their chat !

Particularly, these white folks who only find fault in things that they disagree with, in terms of ones use of expression.

Especially, when it doesn’t fit in with their …

“ Lily White Lives “ …..

They seem to only be able to deal with, “ White Angst “, regarding social issues and the manner in which they are directing the modern world.

I’ve had it from so called black friends too !!!!

…. being told that I was CRAZY, when I was dealing with my mother, when she was extremely close to death ???

However, when people contact you, out of the blue, for a favour, but then get into the type of political discussion, where they then defend the likes of Theresa May, and the UK, in the wake of recent events, like The Grenfell Fire, Brexit’ and The Windrush, “ Hostile Environment Stuff “ …

It truly is amazing how offended they get, when someone, especially a black person, explains to them why we might not have sympathy for people within the political arenas of today, and the past incarnations of it !

So, within 10 texts, I went from the guy to ask for a favour, to a guy with A PROBLEM !?!

Indeed I do, when it comes to individuals, who have blinkers on, when it comes to acknowledging the legacy of colonially driven ideals, spread by the British.

So, therefore, as usual, want to pass the buck & throw stones at other houses, who have followed the British Model, to divert from the fact that Britain is undoubtedly, one of the most Racist places in the world to live !

NOT because of OVERT ….

But …..

COVERT Acts of Racism !!!

…. Then of course, you have these white folks who’ve spent time in Africa, have money, travel loads, and then think that because they are ingesting the thoughts of black people, who have embraced their systems of governance, that they can direct your attention to things that avail a less ANGRY and BITTER position, regarding certain aspects of today’s world, it irks some, fa sure !!!!!

However, I must firstly, thank these two individuals for inspiring my pen to get hot this weekend, but more importantly, as this track shows,

Explain that, actually, it’s all good because ………..

So folks, following on from my previous post, which I know def’ ROCKED A few jaws … !!!!

Well, lyrically, this piece has always had similar powers, but with this sweet groove, provided by Strat Carter, it had to get on Virges’ World 2 !!!!!

It’s actually the Rough Cut Mix, but it’s a good’un,

Smooth and Venomous …..

So NICE, I had to post it twice ….

” Love ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 31/3/2009

As we’re apparently, in the month of … ” Love ” …
A suitable time to speak on this subject …

So …

What Does … Love …
REALLY Mean …. to you …. ???

Your Lovers’ …. Touch …. ?
or the things they do ….
that make you … ” Feel ” …

Your Love is … REAL … ?

Well ….
I’ve said before …

that … ” Unconditional ” … Love …
came from … My Mum …
and that’s for … SURE … !!!!!

A Love of … STRENGTH …
Right to …. Her … END.
that now … ” Transcends ” …
BEYOND …… Her Death …….

I Love You STILL Mum … !!!!!!
because Your Love … STILL RUNS …
Right through …. ” My Veins ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

and keeps me … Sane …

Even Though …
Your Body’s ……………………………… gone …………………….

Your Love for … ME …
STILL Keeps me … STRONG …

NOW THAT’s Love … to me … !!!

UNCONDITIONAL … Love … !!!!

But ….
What about … YOU … ???

Does Love … consume …
The Air …. You Breathe … ?
or … Play a tune …
to a … DIFFERENT … Theme … ???

For some … it seems …
Some … NEW Nikes …
or a … Diamond Ring ..
that Blings’ and BLINGS … !!!!!
is the kind of … ” Stuff ” …
They choose to … LOVE … ?!?

Or a …
NICE … Sports Car …
with a home that’s … LARGE … !!!

Where LOVE gets … SCARRED …
when things get ….. HARD ….. !!!!!!!

But ….
Who am I … to say …
That’s NOT … Okay … !?!

Love can be … DISPLAYED …
In … MANY Ways … !!!!!

Well Love …. to me …
FILLS … ” empty plates ” … !!!!!
and … ” Does NOT Feed ” …
Off … EXPENSIVE Tastes … !!!!!!

Love …
DON’T WATCH … Face … !!

Or …
Colour or … Race …

Love Finds … NO PLACE …
To ……. Sep – ar – at – e ………
because of …. HATE …. !!!

Love … elevATES …
and … Infiltrates …
A Place in … ” Hearts ” …
So that …. Hate ………………………………………………. Departs ……

But Love Can … HURT … !!!
When Love … FILLS URNS … !!!!
Or FILLS …. “A Hearse” ….

because … That Love …
is for … ” Someone ” …
whose time … has come …
to face … ” Questions ” …

Questions like ….

“Son, what have you done
within your life
to earn a shrine
up in the sky ?
Have you done enough
to not get dumped,
in the devils’ home
where evil roams ?”

There’s Love There TOO … !!!
Don’t you be … Fooled … !!!

In Hell …
Love Still … Unsettles … !!!!!

The … HORNIEST …
of …. ” Devils ” ….

Leaving them … DISHEVELLED … !!!!!!

and then … Makes Graves …
For Hate to …. ” Lay ” ….
and Fade ….. Awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy …………………
from … Dormant Brains …

It’s NEVER … TOO LATE …
For Love to … AWAKE …
A Body and Soul …
that is … HATE Controlled … !!!!!

So what would Love …
say to …. Hate ….
if they had a … Debate … ?!?

“I understand,
you nurture war,
so, exactly what cause
are wars good for ?”

“Well they’re good for…….”

“Whoooooaaaaa !
Hold on there bro,
that question was,
a rhetorical one,
I’m the Oracle son !
Wars like you
are clearly dumb,
and lead to news,
that leaves mums numb,
when they have lost,
daughters and sons !
That’s quite a cost,
for war actions !
I seek PEACE and UNITY !
Better scenes, than blood on streets !
I AM BEAUTY, don’t you see !?!”

See ….
Love DEFINES …
Those Happy Times …
and has … NO PRICE …
or things that … SHINE … !!!

While …
HATE and WAR …
as I said … Before …
costs … SO MUCH More … !!!!!!
Than Securing …. Shores ….
when souls are … ” Mourned ” …
for a … BOGUS Cause … !!!!! …

Soldiers … SHOW LOVE … !!!
when Shooting … GUNS … ?!?

MISGUIDED …. Love …. !!!!!
from those …. ” ABOVE ” ….
whose love for … POWER …
Makes them … DEVOUR …

ANY Currency ….
to FEED … Their GREED … !!!!!
Like …. Count Dracs’ … Breed … !!!

What part of … ” Love ” … ?
says … SPILL SOME BLOOD … ?!?

Or …..
Learn to KILL …
for … Dollar Bills … ???

Love NEEDS … NO PAY …
to ….. ELEVATE …..
The minds of brains
from …. Mental PAIN …. !!!

A Smile …
and … A Joke …
Can Help folk … Cope …
to deal with … Stress …
and … Ignorance … !!! …

….. Forgiveness …..
and Love ….. Deflects …..

THOSE ….
POISONED Darts …. !!!
Aimed at … ” The Hearts ” …
of … ” LOVE FILLED WILLS ” … !!!

Who’d rather … CHILL …
Than get … ” Caught Up ” …
in stuff that’s … DUMB … !!!!

Like …
Pulling GUNS …
To Prove … You’re TOUGH … ?!?

LOVE …
Can be …. ROUGH …. !!!!!
and be … MESSED UP … !!!!!!

But ….
SHOULD NOT … Lead …
to … “HATE-FILLED” … Deeds … !!!!!

You see …
LOVE …. ” concedes ” …
and walks away ………………………………………………………..­…

So that it can ……………………. B R E A T H E ………………………. ! ! !

and … Find a way …
to … RISE AGAIN …
and …… Dismiss ……………………………………………….. Pain ………… !!!!!!

Love … SUPERSEDES …
Petty … Jealousies …
and QUICKLY … Denies …
The use of … LIES … !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love IS … DEEP … !!!
Love IS …. ME ….. !!!!!

Love IS ….. YOU …. !!!
Love IS … COOL … !!!!!

Love CAN … ” Move ” …
and Love CAN … ” Soothe ” …

and MOST of all …

Love is … THE TRUTH … !!!!!

I guess that’s why …
I write … These Rhymes …

To Prove that there is LOVE …
In …. ALL OF US …. !!!!!!

These words have come …

” 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 ….

Here’s a poem that’s about as close as i’ll get to showing a slightly, lighter hearted side, to my poetic mind.

Connect The Dots … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People, well, in my world, time feels like it’s flying by !!!!

The season of … Apparent …

” GOOD WILL ” … is upon us folks …

So, for those who indulge, ENJOY !

However, for those less concerned with the whole, Christ Mas’ … Fest …

I’m gonna end this year by connecting a few dots in this poem,

However, before doing so,

Well DAMN, what a year eh folks ?!?

To be honest, so much has gone on, that I can’t recollect too much without sifting through my mind, which I am far too old and tired to do, but what I will say is that from Brexit’ to Trump, to Hollywood Abuses, Government Abuses, Sports Abuses, and basically, ABUSES coming to light from all kinds of places !!!!!

It’s actually nice to see people embrace this time to connect with others in hopefully, Warmer Ways … !!!!

I’ve made some interesting connections this year … Fa’ SURE … !!!!!

Some, that have been fruitful, and quite shocking in terms of whom I have connected with, and others that have been less fruitful, but, equally as important in terms of my personal development, and my ability to connect with the people I’d …. Like to be connected with, for the foreseeable at least.

However, disconnections have also occurred, that have shocked, disturbed and even angered me for sure !!!

Much like many of the more, Serious and i’d suggest, MORE IMPORTANT happenings, that have come to the fore in these last 12 months.

Sadly, these other matters cannot just be swept away, and amongst other global matters that seem to be disconnecting, more than, connecting people. This final piece of the year from me, touches on where we seem to be, disconnecting, instead of protecting the ideal of ….

Keeping the finite dots that we,
Human beings are, in this universe,

…….. CONNECTED ……..

Check It … and stay blessed for the festive and the next few, and stay Connected people …..

One Love.

The Virge.

” Keep It Real !!! ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, it’s that time for me to drop some more, rhyme driven insights, on the world, and how we humans deal with living in it …..

So this month’s spoken word offering deals with a NOT SO Popular, or frequently used saying from back in the day …..

Hip Hop Inspired, in many ways, ” KEEPING IT REAL ” ….. has been used in so many ways now, that it goes WAY Beyond, those three words …..

These days, it’s pretty clear why the saying doesn’t hold as much what ???

I guess …. ” Swag ” …. in the world we live in today.

(Excuse my mis-appropriation of the term young’ guns !!!)

Simply, because the majority of people clearly, DO NOT, keep things real, from their talk, to their actions …….

A worrying trend when you look at the fact that we are a long way down the line of human history, so, I for one, would like to think that people would recognise the value of ACTUALLY, ” Keeping It REAL “, from beginning to end……

However, there are some issues with doing so now aren’t there … ???

The threat of some kind of public law being broken, to the point where imprisonment, at the least, could come your way !!!

Like say, Irish Landlord, Fergus Wilson, check his story out.

He’s been, Keeping It WRONG, on SO MANY LEVELS … !!!!!!

A Very Wealthy, and Prominent landlord in the United Kingdom !!!

He’s kept it VERY REAL, when telling one of his letting agents to stop, ” Coloured People “, from renting his homes, which he seems to think is okay, but that’s a whole different deal !
He has denied being racist, of course, and chose to defend himself in court, where he was advised to ditch such a policy, as it is discriminatory !!!!!

Now, I was told a long time ago, better the devil, or, racist you know, than the one that you don’t !!!

Mr Wilson’s assertion, that his comment about curries stinking out his properties, is “Political Correctness gone mad”, may not actually be, that far off the mark, but hey, that’s the way these days, you gotta be careful what you say right ?!?

Unless of course, you happen to be a President, or, any other description of a world leader ???

Hmmm … and how real are they eh ???

A question for another day, but, another one is, when one of these, ” Leaders “, starts to REALLY, ” Keep It Real “, in their talk, what do the masses choose to do ?

CRUCIFY them, for exposing who they really are …

(Unless You’re Bill Clinton of course ?!?)

….. Or, as seems to be the case now, be accused, from the ladies perspective mainly, of abusing them for, being well, REAL, even if it is in some VERY SLEAZY, and Disrespectful ways …. !!!!!

Depending on where your moral compass lands though right ???

So, quickly, let me just drop a view views on these harassment cases, from HollyWOOD, cos’ NUFF WOOD, LOL …. Seems to be being, thrown about that world, as it does, Britain’s corridors of power !!!!!

Surprised, well, I have to say that it’s about time we heard some folks, ” Keep It REAL, when it comes to what goes on, in Political Offices like Whitehall, and elsewhere.

It’s clear that homosexuality isn’t alien to Politics, but the disturbing nature of quite a few MP’s, arrangements to get sex, and now, their treatment of women, does indeed, leave much to be desired.

However, back to Hollywood, as much as I will at some point be thrown under the bus for expressing this view …. but, it’s my truth, in terms of how I see these accusations.

Okay so, yeah, I have to believe that certain accusations have been dismissed firstly, by the police in certain cases, because there are instances that have come to light, that have indicated that they have done this with paedophile claims and others, over the years, however, there has to be some assessment of where these claims are coming from …..

Actors and ACTRESSES …..

AKA as …. Pretenders, or one could go as far as to say …..

PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, Highly Paid Liars …. !!!!!

YEAH, I Said It …. LIARS ….. !!!!!!

Now, let me MAKE CLEAR, I am NOT suggesting, that every claim that has been made, is some kind of lie, however, what I am saying, is that in an industry based on ….

ElevATING the level of ATTENTION, an individual receives, I Repeat, ATTENTION, that people receive, and clearly, YEARN FOR, for their ability to again, ” PRETEND “, to be something, or, SOMEONE Else……

Well, one has to at least, question, the volume that have … ALL OF A SUDDEN, started to spring up, from here, there and everywhere, Cosby, Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, and a number of Politicians, to start with … ???

Have you noticed a theme with these people though ……

Well, let me point you in a few directions ….. with a few questions … ???

Poverty …. Ummmmm’ NAH …..
NONE of the ACCUSED are, some Tramp of Road !!!
A Reputation for Honesty & Integrity … Errmmm’, Note I Said POLITICIANS as well so Uh Uh.

Wealth ….. Ummmmm’ ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!
Power …… Ummmmm’ ….. NO BRAINER ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!

Influence ….. Well, in terms of career, all the above could certainly be said to have at least got connections to the fast lane to fame, or, a route to power … !!!!!

And THAT WORD ….

” FAME “, is a very, SIGNIFICANT one in these scenarios !!!!!

and finally, the time lapse between these TERRIBLE Things, Including RAPE, being declared, as what occurred !!!!!!

Now, as said, the victims will, in many cases state that, as previously suggested, they were NOT, taken seriously !

As said, it’s ridiculous, in my view, to think that this didn’t happen to a good set of victims, however, if my … PERSONAL SPACE, was imposed upon like that, there is NO F’ing WAY … I REPEAT …..

NO F’ING WAY….. !!!!!!

I’m gonna let that lie for 20 years, and then because of some new wave of impersonal messaging, sent via modern tech, use THAT, as a platform to wage some kind of … ” Bandwagon War “, against something, that, as claimed, was such a TERRIBLE Thing, that it DESTROYED MY LIFE, as some have suggested it has done …..

Even though ???

….. in the case of these Hollywood Victims, they not only, ” Kept MUM “, as in, “quiet”, but then, CONTINUED to work in this industry, where, as now seems to be the case, this type of behaviour is prevalent, due to the predatory nature of it’s members.

Hollywood is a very, ” Special Club “, and i’m pretty sure that women KNOW THAT, who join it, child stars get a pass, however, Mummy and Daddy of said stars, not so much !

Don’t play dumb, when you read the stories, hear the rumours, and see certain things going on …. KEEP IT REAL eh ….. ?!?

ESPECIALLY with, your children … !!!!!!

However, a quick word for those accused, as a man who, in a working environment, has been accused of sexual harassment once, here is why I hold the views I do, and can say what I have previously.

A Young Female, let’s say, tried this, ” Harassment Claim “, because she WASN’T, getting the attention she CLEARLY WANTED, from me, but when she did, it became an issue when I explained that, in her case, walking about, exposing your thong in an office, encourages such thinking in Red-Blooded, young males, who unlike Weinstein and them, are tall and muscular.

So, off she trots to her boss to give the big sob story ???

Now, him being, one of those males who adheres more to being feminine, than being manly, without question, decides to run to TOP MANAGEMENT, one of whom I had been told, was a bit of a racist, to expose my e-mails to this well, female … who, if I had flipped the script, could of accused of Harassment, due to various, more subtle ways of doing so ?!?

However, of course, My Job and Career, if such a thing was affirmed, could have been irreparably damaged, but, concede to the threat ???

Uh Uh …
NOT … THIS MAN …

I told my boss, do whatever, my position is the same as the e-mails state, fire me if they see it her way !!!

Now, one has to remember the pressure that such a claim puts on a brain, but hey, I continued to work for a while with this hanging, only to be told a week or so later, that, having read my mails, the BIG Bosses, apparently told my boss that,

“Virgil is right and to be honest, we’re glad he told her straight, so, tell him we’re dismissing her claim, and he has nothing to worry about !”

Now I get that there were a lot of males in this scenario, but hey, the first one who heard the claim, didn’t blink, before pushing it higher up the office management chain, without question !!!

So, back to the Hollywood lot, a good few of these women are older now, ad may even be seeking some attention to regain some spotlight, it’s not beyond reason to think that this could apply to some of these claimants, and, as for the guys, well, guys are probably equally, if not, more likely to keep quiet for fear of what that will say about them, let alone, the idea that another male abused them sexually, so there is more to the idea that …… Anyone …. !!!!!

…… be they, the female in my scenario, who may I note, in the same office, a year or so later, ended up working on my floor, and quickly made peace with me, as soon as I approached and suggested that we, ” Play Nice ! “.

In her case, just a bit of attention sorted her in the end.

However, there is proof that people, and, in this case, yes I mean predominantly women, can say or do things to cover their own, poor movements & choices, because it’s not been unusual to hear certain victims state that they didn’t say anything, due to the FEAR of what it might do to their career … ?!?

… which again. leads anyone with some common sense, to see that the level of … ” Apparent Abuse “, was and has been known about, and evidently, seen as acceptable within the Hollywood Ringer ….

up to now at least …..

and thus, this month’s piece, explains how I see the fraudulent manner in which, such an APPARENTLY, RIGHTEOUS expression, has been ABUSED, by more than actors and actresses, and their fraternity of FAKERS, but by, ” Road Man “, ” Gyal “, and basically, pretty much everyone who dared to run the phrase, as if they ever lived their life in it’s entirety by …

” Keeping It real ” ….

I Think NOT.

…. and the way that Evidence & Accusations keep surfacing currently, it’s pretty clear that the expression has drifted into the backwaters……

…… because ………

” Keeping It Real ” …. is being … SLAUGHTERED … !!!!!

So, take a listen,
if you think you’re righteous enough …. ?!?
