The night post election

Now it's the night post election
and all through the land
it seems that our history's
taken us by the hand

To say "now be brave
and -- to doubt -- don't you listen."
We all watch Obama
our eyes start to glisten

Can this be for real?
have we lept passed the past?
Have we become like real grownups?

Not quite, says Barack,
we've just now begun
to get to this peak
may render us weak
The climb will be tough
and it's barely begun

This is one big step, but still only one
As the mountaintop calls us,
we now can ascend
It is each other on which we'll depend
And then all the world will see once again
at REAL America -- worth dying to defend.
