# A Nation wakes up in Joyous disbelief
As history is made in the American elections
The world watches with disbelief and fascination.
Some one asked me, is it good for our nation?
Rejoice, people are overcoming racial discrimination.
This is not the time to ask such parochial questions,
It is about rising above caste, colour distinctions.
come on guys, why can’t you see it’s a giant leap of hope
And faith, so please join in the jubilation and don’t mope.
one man, despite lack of experience dared to dream,
and the people who put faith in him, cry and beam.
An Afro American has defeated a seasoned white,
I salute the democracy and the people for their foresight.
Hey, will the name WHITE HOUSE under go change?
So the new occupant doesn’t feel awkward and strange…
