Triumphantly Rise

Resoundingly yes, it is you
Who has weathered many
Hardships to arrive at this
Place and at this very time.

You’ve been strategically
Placed, elected, selected to
Help quell the suffering of
A battered and beleaguered

Nation starved for humanity
From this calamity which
Has threatened, assaulted,
And fractured all of mankind.

The whole world is watching
Breathlessly, hopefully, but
Cautiously for America to
Once again triumphantly rise.

As a Phoenix from the flame,
The eagle spreads its wings
Once more to soar unto the
Heavens in grandeur onto

More glorious uplifting times.
