Subject: Malignant

The malignant, malicious presidency didn't just begin

It's roots are not just in our lifetime

It is an ongoing struggle for what America is and when

Our America will celebrate real freedom and justice with a chime

From an eternal bell

That will loudly sound joy well

For as long as our time

Is to be.

Let us remember those who've already fought and who could see

Frederick Douglass and a Garrison who challenged a nations conscience

And Ol Abe who wandered alone through deaths awful dance

Let us remember Harriet Tubman singing out in the night--Keep On

And Susan Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Let us remember A. Philip Randolph and the always struggle of Black men for dignity

And Harvey Milk and the struggle still of gay and trans folks for equality

And please don't let us forget Joe Hill and Cesar Chavez and Dr. King (perhaps the greatest)

Who all remind us now

America is as just as our struggle is strong

And as free as we keep our vow

Freedom from Tyranny

Justice for All.
