Presidential Race - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Wake Up! Wake Up
The stakes are up without a stop!

He shines amongst the mediocrities
Always mesmerising with charismatic oratory
She stands a symbol of intellectual motherly hope
In a global arena of chiefly masculine political scope

Wake Up! Wake Up
This is a race for the Presidential Cup!

The People want change
And change does not come without consequence
Black, white, mixed race or diversities of range
Cannot deliver without avoiding consequence

And these days the political media digs deep
Dictating to us when to peacefully sleep
Dictating to us when to tearfully weep
But peace is what we should strive to keep

Wake Up! Wake Up
This is a race for the Presidential Cup!

Strong or old
Young or bold
The Barracuda has changed the pace of the game
In an era where it is all about your choice of name

And to all the world it shall be no mystery
When our hero rewrites the books of great history
