ďYES WE CANĒ

And Indeed
YES THEY DID
On the 20th January 2009
In the White House
Barrack Hussein Obama
Was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America
Barack Hussein Obama is the first African American to become President
of the United States of America
He defied all odds and threats
First in the primaries with Hilary Clinton
That strong, honest and patriotic former First Lady who accepted defeat
with magnanimity
YES HE DID
From Philadelphia to Washington
He came by train on the same route that George Washington took to
come to the White House
Riding through cheering crowds shaking hands with everyone
that was within reach
He found over 2 million people of all classes
Waiting to witness his inauguration
Some folks said it was like a dream
Some wept, cried with joy
To witness a Blackman sworn in as President
Of this Nation of George Wallace, KKK
You remember Montgonery, Selma, Mississippi etc etc etc
YES YOU DID IT BROTHER
Like Kinta Kunte
You remained to be called BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA "The skinny Black guy from Harvard with a funny name"
You were proud to be you
Your beautiful wife Michelle
Now the First Lady (black) OF THE MIGHTY USA
YOU DID IT
When you were a Senator
It coincided with the manufacture of a beer brand named SENATOR
Your countrymen all over Kenya
In the pubs, Shabeen and other social gatherings will say "Hey waiter pass me a Senator" "Fill the whole table with Senator" or
"Give that lady a Senator".
THEN I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO DO IT
You took oath on the same Bible that
ABRAHAM LINCOLN swore on
He was a GREAT PRESIDENT
You were twice sworn as PRESIDENT which rarely happens
The 2nd time that it has happened
You gave a shock not only to Africa
But to the whole world including even racist Anthropologists
From the Cotton fields to the White House grounds
From Jim Crowís Cabin to the Oval House
From slavery to Presidency
NO ONE ELSE HAD DONE IT
BUT YOU HAVE DONE IT MAN
On this day, Thursday 21st January, all children born in
Africa should be named Barack
Barrack means Blessing
You have made Africa Prouder
You are President of the whole wide world
YOU WILL DO IT
GOD BLESS YOU
GOD BLESS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
YES YOU DID IT
YES YOU HAVE DONE IT
YOU DID IT AND YOU WILL DO IT
