The Lyrics

Ben, some have anointed you new lord;
big points with many of them you scored.
You are no Herman Cain clone—
you much more softly drone. That you attained MD
strains all credulity.

Ben, your mouth running gives me a scare,
though you blow no smoked explosive air.
If one should explore your mind, they’d find, after it’s mined:
there’s little that you know—each mutterance will show.

You smoothly bray, unlike D. Trump, whose sputum flows free.
Not “yuge” you say like The D; up your poll comes Carly!

Ben, why don’t people turn you away—
are they listening to what you say?!
You who’s loose a screw or two—
more like a loose-screws slew.
Guess you’ll go from “godsend” to campaign that’s a dead end:
godsend > dead end.
You kenned.

Ben Carson isn't the loud, flamboyant type like Trump. But much of what he says tends to make sense to me. The professional politicians have screwed up this country almost beyond redemption. Time to replace them with someone who has had experience dealing with reality.

* Armed Jews would have prevented the Holocaust. * I would have charged the Roseburg shooter, even though I completely pussied out when once confronted with a gunman. * A Muslim shouldn't be president. That's how I deal with reality, among other ways.

I've "Ben" hearing my boy Carson getting a lot of flack for what he said about the shooting but was he really criticizing the victims? or just saying what he would do personally in that situation? 5's

No he was critical of the "loose" gun control laws of the US.
