Ben Carson is an Idiot ...

“That’s what America is about,” Carson said. “A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less."


Ben Carson is a might confusing
because he is without a doubt
a brilliant brain surgeon
& yet,
& yet ...


according to him
he communes telepathically 
with wild bears,
can calm armed-robbers,
stabbed his best friend,
& now sees slavery as
some sort of Welcome
To the Land of Liberty 
All are Welcome Act.


Ben Carson is an idiot
because well ...
where to start,
well how's about millions
of folks forced to board 
ships naked, afraid, 
chained in rows,


& yes, half of all slave infants 
died in the first year,
survivors lived on a basic
nutrition-free gruel,
there was diarrhea, dysentery,
whooping cough, blindness,
skin lesions &
& they were


but to Dr. Ben Carson
these terrified, beaten,
chained, whipped,


were immigrants
just like you 
and just like me.
