Those Good Ole Days - Poem by James B. Earley

We've come a long way
….It's…documented fact
Though literally still calls of
…'Taking our Country back'

'Twas…..the ominous cry
Of the Tea Party crowd
No innuendos this time
Simply folks just as proud

Belittling…disparaging…
Minus the watermelon signs
Bigotry....voraciously
….Speaking…its mind

Capitalizing on the mindset
Toward the Negro enslaved
Indian…….annihilations
…..Klan…….. conclaves

Considering….that history
……In…sooo….many ways
Might 'taking our country back'
…Mean….the 'Good Ole Days'
