A free-verse poem about President Obama representing hope for a better America.
The Washington Mall was filled
Inauguration Day with the chant
O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma! --
a chant that reverberated across
all America filling it with joy
and hope … hope that our country,
after being Bushwhacked for the
past eight, long years, once again
might be restored to its rightful place
of honor in the eyes of the world,
hope that the unwarranted wars,
the torture, the renditions, the corrupt
and arrogant practices of the past
Republican administration, the greed
of unregulated corporate executives,
the five-trillion-dollar deficit increase,
the ruined economy will all be righted,
and the hope that we as Americans
can be justly proud of our great nation
once again … and of our president.
