I spent an hour with Mr. O, who explained the Union's state,

I have to say he sounded good, the country really great.

He made some jokes and talked with gut, didn't hide the pain,

And made you feel that he's a man who knows about hard rain.

Hard rain for old and young and mid, for workers, gays and straights,

For folks whose jobs just come and go, or student U-loan rates.

Future pains he understood, especially pension trouble,

For those unlucky sacked mid-stream or hit by Wall Street bubble.


Been years since someone spoke this way, with words so clean and calm,

For many troubled 'bout our nation, his words were sure a balm.

Yet he's the man of most contrast in century twenty-one,

Called quite right a saint, a Bush, or corporate hired gun.
