Tea Party’s….Watermelon Signs - Poem by James B. Earley

An image….of Ben Carson
Comes immediately to mind
Barbecued ribs…fried chicken
…Amidst watermelon rinds

Caricatures……..aplenty
Whose bigotry reminds
That “taking our Country back”
Meant…another place and time

Might political change of heart
Be some orchestrated sham
….Politics……being politics
Another Tea Party……scam

Prejudice…never the malady
….That simply evaporates
What once…totally despised
….One…most likely…still HATES

Hence…history’s peculiarity
Knowingly repeating itself…
In yesterday’s…..caricatures
…….On history’s……….shelf

Hauntingly…….Ben Carson
....Comes eerily to mind
Barbecued ribs…fried chicken…
Tea Party’s….watermelon signs
