Goodbye Mr. President: Written in Rhyming Fashion

Updated on February 9, 2017
always exploring profile image

My name is Ruby. I write poetry, flash fiction and short stories. I am a dreamer who believes in equality for all mankind.

Has it really only been eight years?

The years flew by so quickly

A timespan of feeling proud, yet facing turmoil and fears

You've accomplished so much, while your hands were invisibly tied behind your back

You remained steadfast, poised

And never once lost track

Of the promises you made eight years ago

Healthcare for the poor, increased employment equality for the masses

You did all this without ever going low

The GOP said you were weak combatting terrorist attacks

While you were secretly working under the radar

Gathering critical facts

You were highly respected around this war-torn world

A class act, you and your family

Even though the spiteful innuendos swirled

First, you were not born in America, you were a Muslim and you were a racist

Then the good people

Called you an atheist

You managed a beautiful smile through it all

Your stature grew much taller

When foes predicted your fall

A President, a family man a bona fide statesman

I still want to rise

And yell, " Yes we can "

I was overjoyed when you said that you were not gonna disappear

I must admit

I shed a happy tear

We need your wisdom more than ever before, your courage and farseeing hope

As our homeland faces threats

And we Americans strive to hold on and cope

I watched you and Michelle dance and sing at the opening of the Black museum in DC

I found myself out of my chair singing and dancing along

As Gladys Knight sang " The Midnight Train To Georgia so beautifully

In closing, my mind is reminding me that America was blessed when you, a gifted Black man decided to run for the presidency and won

I'm sure in time, the historians will write multiple accolades about you and a job well done.

      Hello Manatita, so nice to see you. Yes, President Obama had a difficult time. He was left with a mountain of debt, plus those who hated him and fought him everyday. I loved him and his family, and in a way, I'm glad he's getting some rest time, but he promised he'd always be around, that makes me happy. Thank you so much...

      A very sweet piece, Ruby. You know, I think that Obama did the impossible, considering that from day he was fighting a whole lot of powerful people, who not only saw things a different way, but deliberately wanted to bring him down. Yet he took a failing economy, as a young inexperienced President and turned it around. Nice touch!

      Ruby, Ruby my gem of a friend

      You miss Obama, I also miss him

      An honorable man who served us well

      He did us proud, standing up to those who wished him to fail

      With all the Republicans wishing Obama to hell

      Making up lies and spreading them well

      He faced them all and never backed down

      Standing up for all even the one who wished him to fail

      The greed, jealousy and envy they cannot deny

      They want to erase everything that Obama did

      And malign him and his family while their own sins they hid

      Anyone who was against him can’t tell you why

      That is what makes it so sad saying good bye

I watch the people he's adding to his cabinet and cringe, all billionaires. Thanks for coming back. I appreciate you....

      Hi Shauna. When he started out with Health Insurance, he wanted socialized insurance like every other civilized country has, but the powerful insurance company stepped in. The GOP had a majority, so he didn't get what he wanted. Taxing people who had no insurance was not right. He was not perfect, but a good man I believe. I voted for Hillary. I would have voted for anyone against Trump. I liked Bernie. Thanks for reading and commenting...

      Shauna L Bowling 4 months ago from Central Florida

      I didn't vote for Obama and wasn't pleased when he won the presidency twice. However, I don't think he did too bad a job. The only thing I strongly disagree with is implementing a tax penalty for those who do not have health insurance. To me, that's just wrong.

      I must say, though, I watched his "going out" speech and was impressed with the grace with which he passed the wand. I just wish he could have passed it to someone else.

      Genna, am I surprised that Trump completely ignored Melania? NO! He appears to be a man who thinks solely of himself. I'm sure his whole family has received more attention from him during this political season than ever before. I studied his type in a physiology course and he fits the egocentric diagnosis perfectly. I must admit that I felt sorry for her while looking at the piece you sent. The difference between the presidents treatment of their wives' was striking. Surely the House and Senate will realize his trigger-quick actions are over the top. I don't like Pence's politics, but he would be more presidential acting. Mike is right, we've got to engage more and see that they are voted out in four years, or sooner perhaps. Trump thinks nothing about breaking the law, or changing the law to suit his agenda. It's a scary time in America. Thanks so much for the clip. Seeing Bill and Hillary when they were younger was a real treat...Hugs..

      Oh Genna, never apologize for commenting on any of my hubs. I admire your intelligence and reporting facts. I must say that I'm disappointed, but we have a new president, and we will cope. This is America and no one man rules. We will soon discover if he will help heal this nation. It scares me that he has close ties with Russia, and his many business dealings with foreign countries. I detest the rioting and burning people are doing. I call them hoodlums not patriotic protestors. We will be watching and will soon learn if he thinks of the people he's serving first. I honestly hope he does all the things he promised. I am, in a way, happy to see the Obama family getting some long overdue rest. God bless them. Thank you so much for being a friend..Hugs.

      Genna East 5 months ago from Massachusetts, USA

      I know what you mean, Ruby. The anarchists that showed up at the inauguration gave a bad name to the vast majority of protestors that were peaceful. One protestor tried to stop one who tried to set fire to a garbage bin and was punched in the face.

      In contrast, the Jan 21st march was peaceful, and from what I've read thus far, with no arrests. Can you imagine? Millions of people, worldwide, and no violence. Even Gandhi would have been impressed. :-)

      I only watched bits and pieces of the inauguration process. For example, the Trumps' arrival at the White House. Melania looked stunning in Ralph Lauren's robin's-egg blue design that seemed to bloom against the gray, overcast sky. She was very gracious, smiling at Michelle with genuine warmth as she handed her a gift. You can tell she truly likes and respects the former First Lady. Watching Trump with his head bent slightly downward, as usual, and his trade-mark, perpetual grimace was depressing.

      I didn't watch any of the swearing-in ceremony, nor Trump's speech but read the transcript. I made a point of watching the parade's many participants and bands because this is our country, which we love. They were wonderful

      I'm an Independent. (There are more Indies in Massachusetts than people realize.) At least three of my friends voted for Trump; others, for Clinton; others voted, but did not choose Trump or Clinton in the presidential race. Not one who voted for Trump feels disenfranchised, by the way, or represents the forgotten man, but were single-issue or two-issue voters. I never bring up the election or pass judgment on who they voted for; these are my friends -- and I support everyone's freedom in the right of choice. But two of the Trump voters have since voiced regrets; they watched Trump for two months after the election in giving him a chance. One said, "I'm embarrassed." Another said, "You look the other way until you can't any more. We made a mistake."

      I like to think that at the end of the day, it will be the character of voters that ultimately keeps Trump more honest, and demand integrity and strong leadership with a positive and knowledgeable vision. And I keep hoping for that epiphany. :-)

      Sorry for the long post, my friend.

It's a good thing she's in America, if she was in Russia she's be shot! I can't believe Sha is expecting and you the Godmother, what a hoot!

      Hello Dana, your comment has so much truth in it. President Obama did the best he could under the circumstances. He only had veto power, the house and senate had the power to block any agenda he wanted. I was appalled every time Trump held a press conference, his ego was over the top. I will say that I hope he will do all the things he promised to do, if so I can support him. Thank you so much...

      Genna, I watched his speech and was appalled. It was a speech filled with America's ills, nothing said about anything good. And you're correct, he is the only fix. I admire the women's march, but I deplore the hoodlums who are burning and destroying property. That is not the way to protest. It must be done at the voting booth. I, like you, hope and pray that Trump means what he says. We shall soon see. The billionaires he's appointed to help lead this country is worrisome too. Take care and keep us informed. Hugs...

      Ruby.....One thing I always notice at the end of a man's Presidency is how they age. It really is 4 or 8 years of a crazy job that I just don't understand anyone actually wanting! Barack shows every day of those 8 years.

      Michele worked really hard as 1st Lady too and she accomplished a LOT! They're people I would love as neighbors! Heck, I voted for him both times.

      I do hope they get some rest and have some carefree fun as a family. I wonder what they felt when they awoke this morning as free citizens??

      I'm not even going to take a guess at how the Donald will do, but no doubt every American will have hawk eyes on him, watching, listening and of course (what we do best) griping up a storm the minute he steps out of line. The protests have been wild. I don't recall ever seeing so much of it for any president. Did you catch "Madonna's" comment at one of the women's rallies. She's such a BeeOtch!! She said she has thought seriously about "blowing up the White House." Way to go you stupid wench! She'll have the CIA parked outside her house for a few years! Oh well....we shall see what we shall see. Later girlfriend! OH! did you hear? Sha is poignant! I read it on bill's hub! I'm going to be the godmother!

      Hello Ruby. As usual the fact that you are a gem among gem's came shining through for all to see. What a wonderful tribute to the man who made history. People were awfully hard on Barack, Too hard in my opinion. People have their own personal reasons for not liking him, and if most were honest, it had nothing to do with the way he ran this country. I will always feel he did the best he could with what he was given. Which was a country that was already in the throes of greed and corruption. He couldn't solve all the world's problems, yet he didn't cause them either, all the other President's before him did. Now we can only pray that we can choose a President whose not "power hungry" and has a moral conscience to do right by this country.

      Mornin' Ruby...

      We had a huge protest in Boston yesterday, with thousands taking to the streets. Tens of thousands are supposed to do the same, today, as part of the Women's March protest in DC that is being supported all over the world.

      I wasn't a fan of Trump's speech in that it seemed to pander to his base, and insulted the work, gains and accomplishments of Obama. (This country is clearly not in the abyss it was eight years ago.) True, the problems he talked about are quite real but his emphasis seemed to border on his obligatory, editorial use "we" versus the inferred "I alone can fix this" and "I am your hope." It was clearly aimed at keeping his supporters angry with Trump as their savior. He's replacing what he derides as the "DC wealthy elite" with some of his own "wealthy elite" in the Cabinet. And his thumping (repeated) declarations of populist nationalism in his speech bordered on isolationism. This is one scary puppy. Again, I hope and pray that I'm wrong, my friend, or that Trump experiences some kind of epiphany. Have a good weekend. -)

      A highly intelligent mind, character, dignity, a charismatic sense of humor, respect, integrity and grace. These characteristics of President Obama stand in sharp contrast to those of his successor. I shall miss the first family. Our President left the President-elect with a country, overall, in much better shape than the economic nightmare and chaos he inherited eight years ago. But as Obama said, we still have much work to do. In a sense, Trump has a much easier playing field. We can only hope that he doesn't lose sight of the better nature of our nation's goals, entirely. Thank you for this beautiful and sage poem, Ruby. It was a good way to begin a sad day, my friend.

      Ruby, Thank you for sharing from your heart. Of course not everyone will agree with your summation of President Obama, but we can set politics aside sometimes and just enjoy the moment, the man and his family. I have appreciated President Obama on several occasions. One thing we have is a healthcare program that, while far from perfect, has taught us a great deal. The Republicans may be able to take it much further, but they would not be able to do that if President Obama had not take the first step for us. It's all in a continuum, a flow. One administration hands the results of their hard work off to the next and on it goes.

      Beautiful words, Ruby. Thanks for sharing.

      I love this tribute to a man who has dignity, integrity and is honourable. From my viewpoint across the pond, I always found him to be someone who thinks before he speaks, who cares deeply about what happens in his country and who has a real connection with his people. It is a shame to label him as 'ineffective' which many Americans seem to do.

      The contrast between this elegant, unassuming, yet strong man and the president-elect could not be wider. I don't think Trump has any of those attributes and so far I don't think he has been at all 'presidential'.

      Great poem about a great man.

      President Obama surprised his friends and enemies, and he will be remembered with a warm feeling of satisfaction in your/our hearts.

      Let's hope that we will say the same about Pres. Trump at the end of his term.

      Believe in miracles!
