The Day the Caged Bird Sang

   It happened that January
   Barack held Lincoln's Bible
   And billions across the world blinked
   In front of TVs and large screens.
   His face, a reflection of
   Medgar Ever's
   Madiba's confidence,
   Under a joyous sun
   Too great to be limited to
   Columbus's pride.
