The Presidential Affair Poem by Eugene Ethelbert Miller

The Presidential Affair



She calls me EEM
but I'm FDR. I'm fighting
depression. Eleanor walks
into the room and finds
me by the fire chatting
with myself. I ask her-
how are the coloreds
doing these days? Eleanor
looks colored herself-
her lips bringing the blues
into my presidency.
