    Haiku for Obama

    (Haiku: an unrhymed verse of Japanese origin with three lines in a 5-7-5 syllable pattern)

    Obama’s our man/ He cares about this country/ He’s for ALL of us.

    Blocked by right wingers/ Against him and most of us/ The reds thwart him.

    He tried compromise/ With Republican enemies/Stonewalled all the way.

    Obama’s humane; He stands for choice by women/I will vote for him.

    Another term--YES!/ His vision for the future/Helps We the People.

    Obama’s our man/We want HIM for President/ He IS our best choice!
