“The Rise” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, here we go again, full blown lockdowns, are once again, on the rise, across the globe.

However, the rise of anger regarding these lockdowns, should not be underestimated.

The Dutch seem to be quite upset about being kept locked away, and have taken to the streets, to vent their frustrations, as they are in Lebanon, Israel and, various European Nations, by all accounts, with the French reacting with thousands hitting the streets to protest against laws that, may just stop any form of public criticism of police, being allowed, a very serious law, which, in amongst all these protests for, other apparently, ” Conscious Causes “, is something that’s, really worthy of serious protest, in my view, as this seems to be the kind of law that is one that may become one that’s global, which is something to indeed, be showing serious resistance to !!!

Meanwhile, of course, passive Bajans, seem to be more concerned about maintaining tourism, rather than showing anger at the manner in which, visitors are being treated, and allegedly being given freedoms, that local folks don’t seem to be able to get ?

As well as the idea that, local village shops should now close, which is certain to anger folks, who have already seen business slows, due to this virus.

Furthermore, the idea of the Barbados Government, being able to find funds to get testing units, to now come to peoples’ house, is certainly concerning, and angers me for one, I have no problem making that clear.

I’ll get tested when I need to, thank you very much, rather than, just because the same people who didn’t seem to want to ensure visitors who may have tested negative, were kept locked away, and unable to pass on, what may have been missed, upon initial tests, it’s really quite the invasion on people lives, and is really, quite ridiculous in my opinion !

There is the rise of more and more anger, regarding poor levels of financial support, being given to employees, whose incomes are either being limited, or simply stopped, due to these lockdowns creating, more and more financial pressures.

The Australian Open’s Tennis Players, being given preferential treatment, regarding their being able to travel to Australia, to participate in the tournament, has also caused considerable anger from Australians, trapped abroad, who’ve been told that they can’t travel home yet, due to, whatever Covid, ” this and that “, related issues, the nation is facing, according to the government, especially as quite a few players, now seem to be testing positive !

Like WTF … ?!?

The issue of racism amongst footballers, seems to have reached a head again, this time between, Ibrahimovic and Lukaku, during the Milan derby game this week, where Zlatan apparently told Romelu to,

“ Go do your voodoo “, as well as saying he was a, “ Little Donkey”.

Romelu though, apparently made comments about Zlatan’s wife and moms, whilst swearing at him, which was caught on camera.

Zlatan was later sent off.

The issue of the racist usage of social media, regarding footballers, has also once again risen it’s ugly head, for both, Anthony Martial, and Axel Tuanzebe, which apparently has disgusted Manchester United this week !

Hmmm, well, all this disgust doesn’t seem to be backed up with the type of action, that would send a very serious message to those who seem to think, that they can hide behind their keyboards, whilst hurling racist commentary on players…

Why, because of a poor, TEAM performance ?!?

Again, like WTF … !?!

Simply, do something that’s, LONG Lasting, that really threatens these, so called fans ability, to have their freedom !

Platitudes are clearly proving to be just that.

As for Twitter, yeah, if they can ban, Trump, well, ban these fukwits’ too, and let’s see them face some kind of SERIOUS, penal, punitive measure.

I mean, with Aussie Cricket Fans, allegedly, recently running racist talk on Indian players, are we to really believe that all these race issues, that the, black lives matter movement, should apparently be, hindering, are behind us ?

It would seem not, however, the anger surrounding lockdowns, and the apparent double standards, that have certainly been exposed in Barbados, of recent, are a little more concerning, as are the subsequent effects of the Brexit’ deal in the UK, which seem to indicate, that good old Boris, didn’t quite make a deal, that benefits British Companies, or the country’s economy, as many had initially hoped to be the case.

Finally, what of Mr. Bidens, New America ?

Well, it’s clear that it’s too early to tell, however, one has to wonder when warnings are being issued about the possible rise in, anti-government sentiments, possibly causing domestic acts of terrorism, from Trump supporters.

There is also the rising threat of vaccines being made mandatory, which, although seemingly being accepted by most, as the only way to now go, is still clearly angering some folks !

So, this weeks set of spoken words, having been written and recorded, a while before Covid’ came to be, indicate that it’s no surprise to me, that in these days and times, that, anger amongst folks, for various reasons ….

Even Though The Don’s now gone, is on…..
