Jamaica gets a visitor, who is he?
Barrack Obama, we longed to see,
Just the mention of his name,
We feel surrounded with his fame,
When Air Force 1 hit the ground,
Zero silence, could be found,
Deaf ears opened, Blindness, now sight,
Programming Mr. President to alight,
There he was, the epitome, a true gentleman,
Class, diplomacy, alacrity and wisdom,
Distinguished style, for all generations,
Visible to those led with wisdom,
Traffic congestion, it was a must,
Jamaicans too ecstatic to make it a fuss,
His famous words, "Yes we can,"
Reminding us to stick to the plan,
"No obstacles too hard, for you to cross,
You can do it, if you choose to trust,
Trust in yourself, you must believe,
Thoughts in your mind, you will achieve,
Thoughts of willpower, determination and hope,
Paving the passage for you to cope,
Your miracle, like mine, an instant away"
"I'm here today, Jamaica! What more can I say?"
"Yes we can"
"Yes we can".
