Poem for Barack

Poem for Barack (2012)

Back in windy city where it began,
Many questioned whether hope still lived,
Whether among depression it remained,
Whether light still shone from the waning flame.
But you did it,
The magician conjured,
Your words still filled with wonder,
Still filled with promise, a dream,
A hope resilient,
A dream still potent,
Yes you could, yes you still can,
You gave back hope again.

“It moves forward because of you. It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while each of us will pursue our own individual dreams, we are an American family, and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.” B.Obama.



Hurricane Sandy

There’s a hurricane heading up the east coast,
heading for DC and NYC,
it’s not Hurricane Barack, Romney, but Sandy.
his policies are deeds not words,
bringing the winds of change in his wake,
his HOPE is the hope of survival,
for the tempest to pass over.
Natures raw fury, wild,
timeless, elemental,
eternal, not just a four year term,
the ripping of power lines his inauguration ball..
he truly is the most powerful man of all!
