Of Great Men - Poem by Hannington Mumo

THIS IS AMONG THE 100 POEMS DEDICATED TO PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA IN HIS BID TO RETAIN THE MOST POWERFUL OFFICE ON EARTH.

Men of old like Plato and Homer
Civilized the hearts and thoughts of men;
Today, men of genius like Barack Obama
Rekindle the flames that the greats lit then.


Lincoln made America the last hope of the earth,
When terror and self-centerdness reigned;
Barack Obama only says that Lincoln's words were of invaluable worth,
And opposes all valueless philosophies feigned
By the foes of change.


In 2008 it was done,
And the world was one;
This time it shall be done again
So that the world may once more be sane!
