Enclave of Excellence

Jimmy Carter spoke of racism,
In the Congressman's "you lie" remark,
Joe Wilson's 62, from South Carolina,
The ex-President may not be far off the mark.

Number 39 also took aim at Kanye,
For hijacking Taylor's acceptance speech,
The "punishment" came from Jay Leno,
Is this what Dr. Donda West teached?!

What no one seems to be saying,
Is that racism works both ways,
Against black Presidents in the White House,
And sweet, young white girls at the VMAs.

We all have our enclave of excellence,
We don't like it when others intrude,
That may explain Seven Days in September,
Joe and Kanye, Serena and Roger, all being so rude.
