"A Simple Lyric, for Barack Obama"

The old story is still true
Of the divided child kept safe from hate
From those who would deny him his fate

To become the man who would renew
The urgent promise that would not wait.
The old story is still true

That in exile as the child grew
He would learn the humility needed to create
Hope: the people realizing it is they who are great..
The old story is still true.
