In honour of Obama–a poem, from Walt Whitman

[EDIT] I revoke my poem.

I knew the opening four lines, but NEVER studied the text–until now!

GOOD GOD…Why didn’t somebody say something????

Horrors!

My intentions were honourable though. Completely. AND I had that scene from Dead Poet’s Society in my head, where the student stands on his desk as the teacher is leaving…and starts reciting the poem.

“O Capatin, My Captain….”

I believe people–like administrations–can change. What I’d like to believe even more is that this change in administration brings a change in people. And we lead ourselves into a new era.
