Obama: Reaching For Hope
If I were an American
I would say, “Yes, we can!”
My soul would fall into naivety
And for once, give into hope.
We Brits, moan in the trudge of decline
We spread cynicism
Like butter on toast
When our technocratic leaders pontificate.
We need his kind of inspiration
We need to believe that change can happen
That we can believe in hope
Then we’ll improve from the ground up.
He is the heir to Cicero
The man to move beyond Martin Luther King
The man to make us colourblind
And a truly equal world.
Wulfstan Crumble knows that for all the hope in the world politicians may fail to live up to their reputation or downright lie. With so much invested in his philosophy and rhetoric Barak Obama has to deliver if he wins. I hope he wins, so we may all believe and that he delivers. One day perhaps someone will come who truly wants to put Britain right and then we can believe too.
