During the Minority Confab

After the official questioning, during a break,
Several of the white, male, minority committee
Members and their white, male assistants
Stood around yucking it up showing for the
Cameras that they were confident of what had
Preceded. During the confab, two assistants
Chuckled nervously (with their ample waists
Bobbing up and down and their double chins
Flapping back and forth like two Santas at
Macy’s listening to eager kids), but their over-
Exuberance and the disconcertingly rapid
And persistent nail-biting by one of the
Committee members told a very different
Body language story.
