Rapping About a World at Risk

Barack Hussein Obama 44th President of the USA

No longer a nation of blue states and red states.

No longer a nation comprised of real Americans and the others.

No longer a nation of us and them.

No longer a nation ruled by fear.

No longer a nation steeped in suspicion and xenophobia.

Now One Nation Under God.

Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Now a government answerable to its citizens.

May strength through peace be our watchword.

May freedom from fear be our blessing.

Let liberty and hope be the lamp that lights our path.

May knowledge, forbearance and faith
be a grace we confer upon a dark world.

May America rejoin the community of nations
as a practitioner of peace.

We salute our 44th President.

We wish him God Speed.

We pray for his success and his family’s safety.

May God bless the work of his hands and guide his mind.

May our nation cherish this blessed day.

All Blues

For the Republican Party and their supporters we offer the hand of hope

that can heal our nations wounds and unite us to set our country on a course

to undertake the work to rebuild and reconstitute our beloved republic.


“With Malice toward none,

with charity for all,

with firmness in the right,

as God gives us to see the right,

let us strive on to finish the work we are in,

to bind up the nation’s wounds.

Abraham Lincoln

Blues heals the soul and helps to over come life’s difficulties.
