A poem for Obama

Les écrivains pour Oba­ma…

I am Kenya and I am Kansas
I am a father and I am a son
I am an Amer­i­can

I am a leader and I am a lis­ten­er
I can reach and I can hold­fast
I can shout or I can whis­per
And I can find the good
That we all seek

And when I am defined in this con­test
Or when my oppo­nents attempt to out­line me
And col­or me in
I am proud of who I am
For I am just a man
A father, a son, a hus­band, an Amer­i­can

And to be those things
I must earn the respect of
My wife, my chil­dren
And the peo­ple of my nation

I am an Amer­i­can for which all things are pos­si­ble
In this vast nation of pos­si­bil­i­ties

  1. Well, not bad at all. Maybe we could try to do that as well for Hilary ?

    I am a woman in love,
    In love for Amer­i­ca,
    I’m try­ing to get above,
    But miss a few fel­la (well, that should be “fel­lows”, but in some mouthes, it is pro­nounced fel­la)

    I’ll do my best for my coun­try,
    And wish that all become free
    I don’t fear any vote,
    But I’ll check the quote.

    Bill used to play her Mon­i­ca,
    I will take care of Barak Oba­ma

    Friend­ly yours,
