Good morning darling
Have you rolled up your sleeves
and washed your face?
Scraped yesterday’s muck out from under your fingernails?
Put on your best dress. 
Comb every doubt out of your hair. 
Find every pen and pencil, every sheet of lined paper, every clay tablet.

Gather your sisters and brothers. 

Warm up your vocal cords.
Stretch your backs. 
Clench and unclench your fingers. 
Put on your sturdiest boots. 
Lace them tight.
Square your shoulders.
Link arms.
Stand as tall as your spines will reach.
Lift your chins

and Sing
So Loud that no lie or tyranny or fear or consequence will ever shut our mouths
Ever again.
