Obama Clerihew

Barack Obama (Clerihew)

Chief Barack Obama
Had a white mama.
Now don’t have an attack,
But most think he is black.

For Andrea Dietrich's "Seeking a Fresh Crop of Clerihews" Contest 

Under the category of Poet....he is a poet but noone seems to know it!
My first and only attempt at trying to write a Clerihew
