THE DIGNITARIAN ERA
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.
