we need to affirm to insist to assert
who and what we are is not for sale
though we are many we aren't dirt
we don't all fit in the normal pail
to hang things up is not truly enough
we are not here to pose nor to adorn
life's not just about accumulating stuff
veils disappear not only when they're torn
still there's a time to make things clear
we are the ones who do not only take
we don't just float in the midday air
we're not just sitting down by the lake
our word declares just when and why
and that's far better than any old lie
