A 'Tea Party' Maligned......Perhaps


Lighten-up on the Tea Party
Might be a bigoted sign
..Accusing Tea Party
Of a bigoted mind

..In taunts presumed
Toward ethnic folk
Fried chicken..barbecue
....Watermelon jokes

Consider America's heartland
...Nary a Black Man around
Yet barbecue..watermelon
Kentucky Fried Chicken abound
*
*
Pondering the facts
'Tis a prejudiced sign
...Accusing..Tea Party
Of that bigoted Mind
