Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 90
The Obama Challenge















The job at hand is mammoth

Impossible it seems,

Expectations are improbable

Beyond capabilities’ extremes,

Do you ask yourself the question ?

Can I do the task at hand ?

…A good man ploughs ahead and does it

He knows he can, he can, HE CAN!!!~


The job ahead is monumental

With  critics everywhere,

Despite your greatest achievement

There is always someone tearing hair.

I say, evaluate the problem

And implement the plan,

Ignore the bloody clamour

Because you can brother, YOU CAN!!!


Collectively the planet

Is in one unholy mess

Fraught economies and ethnic fragileness

Are causing huge distress.

Everybody has an axe to grind

And intolerance is rife,

But in wielding your unique approach

YOU CAN obliterate this strife.


I am just a little man

Invisible, obscure, opaque,

But within I feel excitement

At the difference you will make.

So I tell you friend, with passion

From this distant, foreign land

I will fight the good fight with you

Because I CAN Obama,  I CAN!!!
