Both….The Wrong…shade And Hue - Poem by James B. Earley

In the polls Dr. Carson
…Fast….fading from view
Might the good surgeon perhaps
…..Be of wrong shade…and hue

…Question…most likely
Theoretically explains
Yesterday’s…rejection
….Of Candidate…..Cain

Herman…also…of color
…Ignoring the signs
Comfortable with caricatures
….And watermelon rinds

And barbeque…fried chicken
….Pickaninnies and such
Grinning…..and laughing
….Caught up in the clutch

Of a sham from the start
…He too…faded from view
Lessons steeped in reality….
Both…the wrong…shade and hue

Author’s Note:
The new poll shows Trump leading by double digits at 27% favoritism among Republican voters, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio following not-so-close behind at 17% and Carson tied with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 16%. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is polling at 5%. None of the remaining candidates are polling above 3%.
