[This poem may NOT be freely reprinted. Please contact the author for reprint rights.] What a dark night of the mind set on seeing an end to a period of listless governance. When I write I have no idea of the consequences of  how American voters think. I wonder though why voting is optional? If he wins his black skin and heritage will depict a glory unknown, unheard, for a nation that has reached down to the pits of unpopularity, yet disdainly carries on ruling. A nation oft despised for its ignorance and shallowness of mind. If he wins, he is an epitome of the true American with all its mix. On to the top  of the ladder this nation springs. If he loses the depth of despair  can never  be expressed. For America would only present a face, ridden with  hate and prejudice. Racism will have attained  its peak and all the world will suffer at the loss of love and  peace, and just ordinary simple things. Merlyn Swan November 1st 2008
