2008 American Presidential Election Poem - Let's Have A Black President - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

let's just not
talk about freedom
let's see it in
black and white
like giving us a
Black American President
to add more colour
to our presidency

Black as the ink
that graces the white
of our Independence
Declaration, to give
real justice and meaning ever to a sheet of white

Let's have a Black
for our Presidency
A Black with a voice
loud as freedom, a heart
large as freedom
and an ambition
sweet as freedom
for America

Let's have a
Black Man for
President until now
so whitewashed
by liars of freedom
