A new deal for all my american friends

Post by poeticpiers » Wed Nov 05, 2008 2:55 pm

A New Deal

The shouting and the tumult dies.
The people have declared their choice
they’ve chosen change: It’s no surprise.

The time has come long overdue
To break with past failed policies
try something different something new.

Both candidates have done their best
you must give credit where it’s due
But only one could pass the test

You’ve chosen your new president.
You did your bit let him do his
and hope that he proves competent.

To recognise what must be done
to rectify the errors of the past.
A daunting task for anyone.

Though he may lack experience
He’s flexible and he can learn.
You have expressed your confidence.

Remember he is just a man
Alone he can’t work miracles
but with your help perhaps he can

But he needs space and he needs time
to work out the priorities
and what reforms to put in place.

He has inherited a mess
which can’t be put right over night.
It has to be a slow process.

He’s not too proud to seek advice
he knows there’s much he does not know.
Just tinkering will not suffice

You have chosen by majority
to name him as your president
All that remains is wait and see.

If he’s the man the country needs
to show us there’s a better way
Just hope and pray that he succeeds.

He cannot do it on his own
and is entitled to expect
active support from everyone.

Who’s proud to be American
Restore us to our rightful place
amongst the family of man.

Obama is going to face many challenges, most of them created or exacerbated by the Bush administration. Your message of working together and helping Obama to help us help ourselves :roll: is sorely needed, and very eloquently put. Great work!
