Selma's Absence - Bigotry’s Presence - Poem by James B. Earley

President failed to march in solidarity
Administration didn’t send one single face
....Boehner/McConnell….moral outrage
That Paris absence….America’s disgrace

Payback time…it seems…..at Selma
…….With facts it’s hard to disagree
What goes around…..comes around
We’ve got it on Congressional authority

McConnell/Boehner failed solidarity
…..Neither showed a caring face
Selma's absence…bigotry’s presence
….America’s outrage….a bitter taste
