” Virgelements ” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, it’s a time where we have a variety of elements affecting the very fabric of what society is, and what it is now heading towards becoming.

So, I obviously can’t talk about current news, without mentioning the Corona Virus, which apparently, could reach pandemic type levels, if not quickly contained !

Hmm, shouldn’t that of been the case in the first bloody place ?!?

Well, thankfully, for a change, it appears that we black folks are not the primary target for elimination !!!

Shocking I know, but not when you assess who is, the Chinese, a growing superpower, economically, which is a very important element, that shouldn’t be dismissed in this whole, rather strange, sudden outbreak, which is of course, dependent, on what sources you choose to believe as being true ???

So, one has to look at the movements of the Chinese into foreign territories like Africa, in recent times, which, Western Governments have always fought to control, as the continent has so much for them to benefit from, financially !!!

Does the timing not seem, suitably convenient to make the Chinese the enemy of people, globally, due to what they may now be carrying around with them ?

Africans had better watch out, as we know the Chinese are now a prevalent element in Africa’s now, growing, foreign populous !

So, who does this outbreak benefit ?

Well, clearly the US and UK Economies, whose Brexit move has worried business people and financiers across the British Isles, and with trade deals being of high importance now, if trade routes and of course, contact with the Chinese is deemed untenable, guess what ?

Trump, Boris and their pals, surely benefit, in no small way !!!

Yeah, conspiracy type thinking, however, in these days and times, why would fake news not relate to this particular situation … ???

Stuff to think on is all, of course be careful folks, but recognise where the biggest threat lies, and it’s not in Chinese people, solely, or individuals from Singapore, like the young man who was attacked in London this week, by a group of youths who racially abused, and beat this young man, who was told during the attack …

“I don’t want your corona virus in my country !”,

by one of his assailants !!!

Nice … NOT … !!!

As is the element of stock piling of goods, to then sell them at exorbitant prices !!!

Toilet rolls for a thousand dollars anyone ?

One guy in Australia got caught out by a news crew, who awaited his arrival to make a sale.

However, upon arrival, he then quickly suggested that the money was for an operation, when he saw the news crew lying in wait for his ass (Excuse The Term) !!!

Yeah RIGHT …. !!!

So, there are signs of panic, and we don’t even know how serious it is yet … ?!?

… other than that, it seems that the high fliers, who do plenty of business in China, seem to be the best folk to steer clear of currently, as is the case with Italy, Iran and China obviously !

It would also seem reasonable to suggest that OLD People need to be steered clear of too, due to their age being a factor in their ability to resist, said virus, due to weaker immune systems, again, due to age, and the fact that again, due to AGE, they/we, cos’ I ain’t no youngster, are of very little use to the slave business, that modern work has become for many …..

It’s no coinkedink’, that people are working much longer than before now is it !

Oh Well … !!!!!

It’s also, just incredible to see the greedy, criminal elements in people, surfacing so quickly, when something, that could become seriously dangerous to us all, is in its infancy ?!?

UNBELIEVABLE !!!

It’s also a bit scary, when this kind of scenario was written about in no small way, in Dean Koontz’s book, “ The Eyes of Darkness “.

Thus, talking of darkness, it looks like the ladies will remain in the dark, when it comes to running America, as Elizabeth Warren has found that her run for office, will not get her to the Whitehouse !

Ah well, I’m sure there’s some cooking that she can do somewhere, that’ll fill up her time !

As in ….. “ Cook up “ …..

…. some more political rhetoric !

(before the feminist, #metoo brigades, start to gang up on me !)

So finally, let me briefly speak on Chris Matthews, seasoned TV Presenter in America, who has found himself in hot water for making what would have been deemed by most, as compliments many moons ago, that are now seen as sexually, unacceptable comments !

Okay so, we get it now, the emasculation of men is another element within this modern world, that is now, DEMANDING MORE RESPECT from men, for the ladies !!!

Cool cool, but, where does the line stop exactly then ladies ???

…. because you know what will happen when men become too scared to compliment women right !

When they receive little or … NO ATTENTION … !!!

They’ll be the first ones to start complaining about the lack of,

“ REAL MEN “,

Mark my words … !!!!

So, for a lot of guys, by now becoming whatever variant of metrosexual male, that the feminist movement seems to now want us to be, we’ll be walking on eggshells, just to get some !!!!

How crazy people have become ?!?

…. and the fundamental elements that make us what we are, may well be the things that people end up craving for, but hey, us older archaic thinkers, have no place in today’s world it seems …

Well, there are a few elements that I’d like to discuss this week, and as everybody seems to be creating fresh definitions of themselves, this weeks piece comprises of….

My own version of what are known as elements …

However, these are ….

In A Week of Comebacks … written by Big Virge 18/4/2019

Yes Yes Folks, well, it’s been a few, but i’ve been busy doing my do, prepping a few jewels to now start sharing with you !

And I DO MEAN BUSY … !!!

And …..

This has a brought about a rather impressive level of creativity, from some of the older heads I have connected with, so, contrary to my own belief, all things being equal, there will be a couple of comeback tracks from Big Virge, which will be bringing me back to my TRUE Musical Preferences, of Soulful Music, with the odd snap of Boom Bap Hip Hop, and some other liks’ here and there, so, DON’T SLEEP, there is a LOT MORE music to come from Big Virge !

So, this connects me to the rather incredible comebacks of Tottenham, for one, Tut Tut Pep’, just make sure you continue to make those Mis-Steps, as it would be the comeback of all comebacks, for Liverpool to get to the place that has proven to be beyond them for far too long !

TOP SPOT in the Premiership Title Race, and they do look like a team, that, dare I say it, barring injuries or anything crazy happening, are a team worthy of completing what has been a fairly smooth season thus far, that has shown them to be resilient, and able to win the games that before, were literally proving to be the Banana Skins, denying them glory.

We shall soon see ………………..

Finally then, and by no means least, is the comeback of all, this past Sunday, when a certain, Eldrick ” TIGER ” Woods, returned to the Major Winners Golf Circle, with a literal, MASTERS’ Display, to ward off the young pups, who, for a while may have felt as if the game was theirs to take over.

Well fellas, THINK AGAIN … !!!

I have been, like many others, critical of Mr. Woods off course shenanigans, however, when it comes to his skills with clubs in hand, I could not have been more upset at the prospect of him never winning a major again, so, box ticked, props to ya Tiger … !!!

It was a truly, astonishing achievement, and may you go on and sneak past Mr. Nicklaus to become the indisputable, Greatest Golfer of All Time !!!!!

So, what do I return with … ???

Well, nothing quite as astounding as Tiger’s comeback, however, talking of astounding things, it would be remiss of me to not speak on Brexit’, and the crazy mess that Britain is proving itself to be becoming ….

Deadline Missed, Extensions and Cross Party Talks are supposed to do what exactly, make all this seem worthwhile ?

Well, Good Ol’ Theresa is soldiering on, I dunno bout comeback, but, there’s been a whole lot of Backtracking and Backstabbing going on, so it’s time for me to take a few pot shots at another issue that seems to have conveniently, stopped being so regularly spoken about, that being, the Grenfell Fire, and the farcical leadership, that no-one seems to be able to get rid off, like a bad case of well, something that ….

You REALLY Could Do WITHOUT … !!!

So folks, here we go, a little poetic flow from Big Virge, for the week, with MUCH More to come ….

BELIEVE ME … !!!!!

But for now, i’ll leave you with some Big Virge ….

“Point The Finger” … Written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Yes Yes People !!!

So, what’s going on in your world right now ?

Well, having just watched a very interesting movie about Botswanas’ not so distant history, of race driven shenanigans, that included, quite a bit of finger pointing by the British & South African Governments, ” A United Kingdom “, is a film that serves as a great reminder of the danger of pointing fingers, without justification, especially when yours are clearly, NOT SO CLEAN …. !!!!!!!

Fast forward to today, and there’s so much to think on these days, that connect to …..

” Fingers Being Pointed ” …..

…. that has led to much that we see in the world today.

Especially the modern political landscape of today, as pressures increase, safety concerns continue to disturb, from Migrants apparently, causing problems to Italy’s Southern Coastlines, to Brexit’ talks continuing to apparently, falter ….

…. and talking of faltering ….

NOT, that it was a failure, but sadly, it doesn’t look as though we’ll get to see Mr. Usain Bolt, pointing his arms and fingers to the air in celebration of a major championship 100 metre victory again ….

Ah well, such is life, but I have to quickly give props to this legendary athlete, for all his achievements on the track, and hopefully now, what he should translate into an, off the track legacy, that will not only help Jamaica, in multiple ways, but also, young athletes all over the world, to be inspired to achieve, something even comparable to the, ” Lightning Mans’ “, achievements.

Well done Usain, great career man !!!

However, back to this idea of pointing fingers, well, The Trumpster’ is hiring and firing as quickly as he can point his fingers clearly, Korea are pointing fingers at the US, as are Russia now, and Venezuela and Brazil, seem to have a lot of pointing going on, of much more than fingers sadly ….

and Of Course, one cannot forget the Grenfell Tower Blaze survivors, who are also pointing fingers at the UK Government and wanting, not only answers, but a place to lay their heads, after what now seems to be accepted as Corporate Manslaughter, so, I wonder whether judges will have the balls to point some MP’s to Jail, with no chance of getting Bail, or, a …

” Get Out of jail Free ” … card … !?!

Unlikely …… !!!

… as it seems to be unlikely that Barbadians will do anything more than, walk and talk about, how tight things now are in this island paradise, because of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, pointing to who knows what, to ensure his legacy of governance is not forgotten, for quite some time …..

So, for this month, as there does seem to be a lot of this going on, right about now ……

Some verse worth pondering before you join the brigades doing it ……

I suggest you check YOURSELF, before thinking you can do it …..

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

Well folks, following on from my previous post about Fools and their Foolishness, it’s clear that Brexit’ negotiations may prove to be, a little frosty, from the EU’s perspective, but hey, Theresa May never struck me as a particularly easy woman to have to negotiate with, as she immediately reminded me of a Certain, ” Iron Lady “, by the name of Thatcher….. upon my first sight of her !!!!!!

However, there are party shifts, from members of the public, who of course are individual parties …

…. to possible, European shifts, as elections shine a light on the underlying issues of a Union that, CLEARLY was, (Never Really) …. That Unified …. ???

Or… was it … ?!?

Well, the Party does, “seem to be over”, with regard to Britain and their status amongst their European friends ….

Did I say friends … !?!

I mean …. counterparts of course !!!!

(Maybe not, quite so FRIENDLY, and ” Seem ” … being a very important word, in all the public shenanigans they feed the masses…….)

However, parties of all kinds are taking issue with Mr. Trump and his policies too, as they have been and continue to do, towards Jacob Zuma, and notably now, in Venezuela too …..

Noticing a trend folks ???

Well, Barbados has it’s political issues too, but, the people here, are a little less bothered by them, or again, are they ???

Well, much like the beginning of this poem suggests, i’ve had my fill of pretty much, ALL of these parties and partying now …..

Well, who wants to be the old man in the club eh ….. ?!?

Certainly NOT… Britain anymore, that’s for sure …. LOL ….. !!!!!!

….. and this piece takes a swipe, if a slightly, facetious one, at all these various parties, political or otherwise …..

Take a listen …….

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

So, years on … and there seems to be a rise … ???

in … Reaction driven groups like, Britain First ….

On the offensive, in how they are dealing with England’s apparent,

” Islamic Problem ”

Didn’t realise Cameron’s middle name was Hussein too !!!!

Anyways’, I have one question, other than the ones in the below poem from the days of 7/7 …..

Abuse of Islamic people in the UK … On the riSE …
Bomb attacks that had a GENUINE level of threat to England … Hmmm …

The stats would be interesting … ???

Thus, here are a few of the visions I had, soon after 7/7 ……

” Reaction ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 8/7/2005

After the 7/7 bombing …
This is part of a Trilogy of poems to remind people about
where some of their, ” Anti-Islam Rhetoric “, seems to have started from ….

(BTW … I am NOT, Pro-Islam)

What happened yesterday …
Left … Many Folks … AMAZED … !!!!!

to see the …
” London Underground ”

BLOWN UP … !!! …
and … Ablaze …

Ofcourse we’ve heard … REACTIONS …
from the … ” Usual ” … Political Factions …

But ….
While things were … COLLAPSING … !!!

Where were they …
” G8 ” … Protracting … ?!?

It’s … Never Them … !?!
That … Feel the … STING … !!!
but people who … ” Won’t ” …
be the same … AGAIN … !!!! …

” Some ” … Have Died …
while some … ” Survived ” …

But …..
They … ” May Wish ” … ?
They’d … Lost their life …

What we … “Hear” …
is … ” So Contrived ” …

It’s … ” Al-Qaeda ” …
ALL THE TIME … !!!!!!!!!!

Let’s not keep …

THE TRUTH … ” dIsGuisED ” …
” They have got ” … Western Allies … !!!

So …..
Where’s … ” The Proof ” … ???
to dispel … ” LIES ” …

That … will be fed …
to … ” Controlled Minds ” …

I haven’t got a clue … ?
Try … MI5 … !!! …

Aren’t they the ones … ???
Who … PROTECT LIVES … !?!

They seemed to be … ” LOST ” … !?!?!
Did they need … ” A Guide ” … ???

It’s … Cars they drive …
While some have … DIED … !!!

On … GUESS WHAT … ?

YES …… !!!!!

A Double Decker Ride …

But … ” It’s Okay ! ”
is what … ” They say ” …

“Security measures,
are now in place !”

Okay … That’s Great … !!!

But …..
The Fact … is this …

IT’S A LITTLE TOO LATE …

When … MANY NOW …
Have met … Their Fate … !!!

” Isn’t ” … PREVENTION …
Better than …. ” Cure ” … ?!?

You’d better ask Bob … ?
or try … Midge Ure … !!!!

” Live Aid ” … worked … !!!
It got a …. REACTION ….

Yeah …..

George Bush … ” Ain’t ” …
Removing … SANCTIONS … !!!

Fair Trade … is …
A Better Way …
than giving … Pop Stars …

The … ” Political Stage ” …

They just want …
Some more … AIRPLAY … !!!

Those who … ” Believe ” …
what the … Media say …
are … VEXING ME … !!! …
in … ” Different ways ” … !!!!!

People I work with …
make me … ” Laugh ” …

“Virgil, this thing,
ain’t a joke !
Someone in here
may have had,
their heart broke !”

That … May be true … ?

But …..

Here’s … MY VIEW …

People Laugh …
Every … God Damn Day … !!!
while … ” Many DIE ” …
in … ” Different Ways ” …

NOT … Naturally … !!!
They’re … ” CASUALTIES ” …
of things we all see …
in … ” Societies ” …

Come on folks … !!!
You … Must Agree … ?!?

So …..
Don’t you point …
Fingers … at me … !!!

cos’ you … Like Me …
are … ALL GUILTY …
of making jokes …
while others … BLEED … !!!

Look at those …
who had to sleep …
in …. London Hotels …

Beds …..
DIDN’T COME CHEAP … !!!!!!

These are … The Acts …
of the … GREEDY BREED … !!!

I’ll laugh … OUT LOUD … !!!!!!!!
cos’ that … Ain’t Me …

People have … ” Died ” …

Yeah … it’s a … TRAGEDY … !!!

But …..
How many … ” Care ” … ???
About … ” Those in NEED ” … !!!

In places … Here …
In This … country …
and those who …

SUFFER … Overseas … ?!?!?

How many can say … ?

” They think of them ! ”

Those … Living a life …
WITHOUT … ” Freedom ” …

It’s TRUTH … I Talk …
while you … Build Forts …
to … Save Yourself …
from … ” Conscious Thoughts ” …

and then want to … ” Act ” …
Like … ” You’re a GOOD SPORT ” … ?!?

and think about those …
with … LESS … Not More … ???

Check YOURSELF …
in the … Baggage Hall … !!!!!

This … FOR SURE …
I DO … ” IMPLORE ” … !!!!!

I … DON’T Know Everything … !!!
I … DON’T … Claim to … !!!

But nowadays …

My views are … ” Shrewd ” …

I’m searching for … TRUTH … !!!
NOT …. ” Fraudulent News ” …. !!!

” IT’S A POWER SURGE ! ”

Remember …
” Those Words ” … ???

cos’ …
Now … WE KNOW … !!!
that message was … Blurred …

YES …
with these words …

You Must … CONCUR … !!!

So …
These last words …

Go to … ” Fake Factions ” …

EVERY Action …

Provokes a …

… ” Reaction ” …
