USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Fragments Of Poetic Thoughts (39)


If the Carson that is being referred to in your poem is Ben Carson, then I think that someone should punch him on the mouth for his sarcasm in saying that the African slaves who arrived in America, were "immigrants" (like those who arrived on The Mayflower) . As Malcolm said,

"We didn't land On Plymouth Rock, the rock landed on us !"

I guess that Carson also wants to respected as "Dr." Ben Carson. He should take this notion to heart because it's wholly applicable in this case (and I think of this sayings sometimes when I read Oga Falola's always moving eulogies:

" We owe respect to the living; to the dead we owe only the truth" ( Voltaire )

His cruising gear
After gulps of beer. 

He cruised 
On the wrong course
With the wrong speed. 

Cruising Carson 
On the barricades of history.
