Great expectations

The moment of triumph is here
bringing great expectations.
It's still not too late to wish all wars to end
and to some better order to this troubled world
so grossly mishandled by crooks and impostors
that ever turned history to a most ruthless
and thoughtless rumbustious bulldozer.
All countries are ruined at least to some part
by the reckless irresponsibility of warring lords
acting first, shooting blindly and afterwards
bleak-minded by their mistakes.
Anything would be better than what we've been through,
so it's not wrong to have expectations
since any change must bring improvement.
Let's hope also for some enlightenment
and some good sense for a change;
so I welcome you heartily with deepest thanks,
Mr President Barack Obama,
for finally bringing some hope
to the desperate state of the rotten American state,
which the whole world with me but can welcome
with enthusiastic applause and encouragement
of this new hope of some betterment
and possibility of a new deal for America.
