Mr. Obama made it his motto,
“Change is on the way”,
And a great democracy was reborn,
On this historic day.
Young and old they came in droves,
From dawn, ‘til dark of night.
Folks who’d never voted in their lives,
Lined up to exercise their right.
The historic legacy of the last eight years,
May seem a little strange,
It forced a great nation to awaken,
To the desperate need for change!
PS, Mark Twain once said “The worst thing about democracy is that you always get the kind of government you deserve.” Today things are looking up!
