Barnum And Bailey's - Intelligent Black Man - Poem by James B. Earley

Why…would….I wondered…
Any intelligent Black Man
Find Republican ideology
….Mutually hand-in-hand

Tolerating such caricatures
…Ubiquitously he'd find
Racist……paraphernalia….
Amongst Tea Party signs

While locked in my quandary
…..I saw…..battling on stage
Twelve angry…..White men…
Ben Carson…absent…of rage

…..Smiling….and blinking
Well aware…..of his looks…
Modern day Barnum/Bailey
Brilliantly peddling those books

…Campaign funds…collecting
Having a good time to boot
Black Republican…..opportunist
…Accumulating…his loot

Adversaries……….cheering…..
Seeing…Ben's poll numbers tank
Happily….the good Doctor…..
Counting bucks…at the bank

A Republican ideology
….Mutually hand-in-hand
Barnum……indeed Bailey's….
Intelligent….Black Man
