Triggered ploys divide with fear
Those once close, no longer near.
All rights blighted, thoughts all frighted,
America united not the more.
Systems rot unchecked for greed.
Those least among us, forgotten need.
The huddled masses, razored out,
Trust in power, now in doubt.
Who will guide us back to grace,
We varied multi shade of face,
With common credo, hope and trust,
A sojourner leader, one of us.
From humble roots, both near and abroad,
Dually cultured lightning rod.
Little known, this lion king,
Articulate change he's bent to bring
To save a nation once at the top,
He'll call all back, commanded to "shop",
And ask us instead to serve and act
On principle by example, like Barack.
Our time is now, the earth can't wait,
When asked to help, don't hesitate.
Whether it's you, your aunt or even "mama",
"We're in it together" said Obama.
