Less Than 24 Hours New Sheriff in Town

Obama ran on a platform of hope and change which we swallowed hook, line and sinker
Was white guilt the cause to vote in a man with no experience in leadership and a leftist thinker?
With the economy sinking like a stone in the worst recession since the Great Depression
The only doubt was not whether Obama would win but rather by how much would be the question
He also ran on a platform to unify,  this candidate half black and half white
To put aside the divisions that were caused by adherence to racial blight
The idea of unity and compromise for the nation’s good to climb out of this economic mess
When the leadership skills of our elected officials were under great stress
Somehow got lost on the way to the Oval Office,  got lost in the  teleprompter shuffle
His vision for unity and transparency was too quickly to be muffled
Members of Congress who dared to question him saw an egotist whose feathers were too quickly ruffled
Aided by Harry Reid always ready not to compromise but rather scuffle
Obama lived by the regulatory sword and had no time for compromise
Civility and bipartisanship in Congress went into mortal demise
Now after 8 years a new sheriff is in town chomping at the bit
To erase Obama’s legacy across the board as he sees fit
Hold on to your hats and enjoy the ride
A job creator who in America has great pride
Ever since JFK’s first hundred days
A president must move quickly before bureaucracy and inertia get in the way
President Trump should be taken at his word that he will be the president for us all
From the ranchers and farmers on the Southern border anxiously awaiting the construction of a wall
To the jobless millions in the inner cities whose education and job potential have totally stalled
To the factory workers in our rust belt who have by currency manipulation and NAFTRA been mauled
To miners, frackers and drillers who had to against Washington fight a war
While the number of job killing regulations continue to soar
To the forgotten deplorables who do not live along the coast
To the vets and elderly who need our help the most
A president for all of us regardless of gender, age,  race, color or creed
Finally a builder who will end the nation’s infrastructure from going to seed
For the 62 Blues who are refusing to the Inauguration even attend
One can only hope they come to their senses and blatant hostility to President Trump end.
If he succeeds, we all succeed and can start climbing out of the massive amount of debt
If he fails, we all fail, and we will head down a path of stagnant growth we all will rue and regret.
