Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Bama, let them criticize

The speech that you made in Germany
Was excellent, astounding and amazing.
Your critics are blinded by bias and by jealousy.
Most of them are still living
Under the old virulent past.
Some racists and sore losers will never change
No matter what non-whites do. At last,
You just emerged and they find strange
That somebody like you can energize and excite
So many decent and open-minded individuals.
Let them criticize, let them talk, let them rant.
This time, they can only blame themselves
If you don't become the next President
Of the old U.S.A. You are out of sight
To use a colloquial or a vernacular term.
You are re-writing the human history.
I believe there is one race, one germ.
Ignore your critics and let them hide behind the ugly tree.
Some people will never change no matter what.
Some have no conscience and no common sense.
It is unimaginable for a non-white to do something like that;
I am elated and very proud of your presence
On the political scene. You went to Israel and to Palestine.
You visited many friendly and unfriendly countries.
You are a proud American and a true Citizen
Of the world. You are building more bridges
For mankind and I pray that you'll win in November.
May God bless you and help the dissenters see clearer.
All of us can really change and improve everything for the better.
We all shall overcome and all of US shall open wide the barrier.
