As we await the announcement of our next President, Caleb Monday Jonah writes this great poem.


now is the time
our eyes pulled up into the screen
our ears clutched to speakers
our hands entwined in itself
our hearts pumping more blood
we ar waiting

we wait for the voice of jega
the long awaited voice
if only i could finetune d voice to please everybody
today that voice will please many
today that voice will displease many
in any case the voice will still speak

we ar waiting for what our hands have thumbed
my beloved people
let us look beyond what the voice wud say today
let their b no killing
we hav had enough of it
let there be no bloodshed
our earth is full of it
let there be no burning
our sky is already dark
we wait for the voice
please let us not wait for peace
let peace reign in our hearts

we ar waiting
