Good night, Capitol Dome. Good night, American home.
Goodnight, democracy: north, south, sea to shining sea.
Good night, Americans, both D & R.
Whether your hero fell or rose as evening’s star.
Whether you’re tucked into bed or still out

at bar.
Remember, we’re a team, out of many, one.
(To quote our dollar, “E pluribus unum.”)
Good night, lucky many, who share in this land,
fall NOT into division, but unite and stand.
-Election Night, 2012-
