     for Robert W. Fuller

A Dignitarian is one who sees
In all of us our worthy qualities.

Though every human being is made of earth,
Each one of us contains inherent worth.

To be a Dignitarian means you dig it
That pulling rank on others makes a bigot.

That you may rank above me in some order
Gives you no right to trespass cross my border.

My sanctuary is my dignity,
A blessing born of my humanity.

Though I myself may trespass against laws,
I’m worthy nonetheless, for all my flaws;

While my bad actions rightly should be blamed,
I should not be disparaged but reclaimed.

Let a new era be proclaimed by clarion
When each of us grows truly Dignitarian.
