A Dream Reclaimed

A dream reclaimed
way over yonder
in Martin Luther King land

A dream reclaimed
history made with
imperialism on its head

A dream reclaimed
a public holiday declared
nearer our shores in Kenya

A dream reclaimed

no more Bush-talk

A dream reclaimed
by an African-American

Is this hope new
or a dream deferred
