Phillis Wheatley’s Response to Biden and Harris’s Victory

Relief has come with Biden’s victory

T’is true indeed for Kamala you see

Methinks there’s hope to cut Gordian’s knot

In which America shrivels and rots 


Muses tell me of two worlds we may live

One with work toward peace and informative

One with chaos, divided, filled with hate

God has saved us, I pray, from Satan’s bait


Now ye chosen by the people’s penned hand

Live up to your promise made to this land

Acknowledge pain and those bereft of hope

Lead all oppressed up freedom’s troubled slope
