Barack cool as a schooner in wind
Anchored his vision to the sky
Rinse the blue and uncloud his mind
Rose up sweetly, bloom to defy
Ancient customs screening light
Callous suppositions on human rights
Kindle a candle on his bow
Omniscient one, keep this orison for him
Black as the night but better to show
Africa's star on the Atlantic brim
Mending fences, sweeping pretenses away
Allow him to bring his cargo into bay.
