2008 American Presidential Election Poem - Black Presdent, White President

A black president?
nobody would really mind
so long as he leaves no
black holes in debts, in war,
in injustice for the people
of America, black or white.
Cherokee or Minority

Obama, Obama as President?
Nobody would really mind
so long as he makes his term
great for blacks, for whites
for every American
for everybody

it is in black that white
shines brightest and
in white that black pours
out its best to draw us into
the warm and friendly
orbit of its formless infinity

Obama make your term
so bright that every American would
want you for another term
and another Black as Leader
when you walk your way
away from them

make your term
so inexorably bright
as the North Star
nobody would ever
mind anymore their
American being
Black or White,
Cherokee or Minority

Why does everyone care so much that the new president is black? He's no different from his predecessors. People just think that because he is of a new race, this is a cause for change, but it is by no means.
