2008 American Presidential Election Poem - Obama - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

presidential race
obama he needs to work real hard
like turning white to black

you were wonderful
the steely sheen of your voice
your tenacity, forthrightness
your grit in fighting the odds
the only drawback, that little
ounce of diffidence, tiny it might be
which yet had the power to
slur the speech
however the night of the victory
put all sign of inadequacy
into history and a new chapter of
American history has begun
the rest is for you to prove
you can cross the last hurdle
to grab the most challenging
public office in the first world
Michelle said you are a man
true to yourself and others
and I can believe in that
the night you won the nomination
was the peak of it all
it has been so many years
i never heard a proper
inspiring, eoloquent and
trailblazing speech
yes, it was a historical moment
a landmark in American history
a blackman finally standing tall
