One Response to “Obama’s poetry book – his latest read”

  1. If ever there was a poetry book the President–elect should read it is ”Path To The White House” by Khaidji, also by a West Indian poet. This Bajan Poet creatively crafts acrostics which records the campaign trail and covers some of the more topical issues from the Primaries to General Election. There is a moving Birthday wish to Barack Obama and tributes to “Toot” and Tim Russert. The last two poems are congratulatory.

    All the poems in this hard cover 240 pages book are acrostics and are all based on the political race from a different perspective. Anyone can enjoy the nostalgia as these poems reminisce on what is now one of the greatest times in American History but based on the fact that Khaidji is Barbadian (remember Eric Holder and Rihanna are Bajans too), Barack Obama is loved throughout the world. I got my copy of ”Path To The White House” by Khaidji from BajanBook.com and highly recommend it to everyone

    Lots of talent comes from out of the West Indies and clearly Bajan Poet Khaidji is no exception
