TITLE: Obama's Vision

In January on a winterís day
Our President had a lot to say.
He took a position and made a stand
About the condition of our Great Land.

With dignitaries dressed in silky suits
To them he smiled and gave salutes.
The public watched on television
To hear his voice and see his vision.

He mentioned the crisis in Arizona
With eloquence, sympathy, and persona
To parents of small victim, sadly not fair,
Who watched and listened despite their despair.

Obama gives dark news; economyís bad
But not to worry, despair, or be sad.
The Recessionís ending; economyís growing.
Bad bills, high debts we soon wonít be owing.

Education is high on his list
For steps to our future cannot be dismissed.
Honor the teacher instead of high fame,
And our countryís knowledge will win in the game.

He focused on science and technology;
The best in the worldís competion, we see.
Studentís are needed with this aptitude
To set the tone of a technical mood.

But, he didnít mention those who write prose
Or eccentric poets with rhymes that they chose
Or beautiful imagery and alliteration
Who inspires and brightens this weary nation.

As they are needed like technology
They deserve credit for ability.
With their spirit, knowledge, and drive
It makes living better; it makes us alive.

But, what about Jesus our Lord and our King Ė
Of his special grace Obama canít sing.
For in truth Christ blesses our great nation
With hope, peace, love, and divine salvation.

We look to the future and whatís coming near.
We want to make progress in the budding year.
Letís move forward with prayer and with power,
And give God the glory for every new hour.

I especially love the end of the poem. I keep praying for all of our politicians. It is only with God's help that our country can thrive.
