Barack Obama,
What an excellent name!
From a small boy in Hawaii,
To a man of fortune and fame.

From governor of Illinois,
To our nation’s new ruler.
Obama’s got the best job ever,
That couldn’t be cooler!

Michelle, Malia, and Natasha,
The family of our USA,
Their favorite man has got the power, and he is here to stay.

Barack Obama,
The Whitehouse’s next resident
Is now a public figure,
And now our 44th president.
His journey was rough, and paved with doubts,
But knowing Obama, he’ll make it out,
And come on top, as our newest president.

The next four years won’t be just the best,
Because the USA has found its self in a mess,
war and fights Obama must stop,
but he won’t give up or run away,
because the face of change is what he is today.
