A Risky Toast

From coast to coast 

We raise a risky toast

To love and opportunity

Peace through resistance

Growth through Unity

These times will be marked with

Fraudulent politicians 

While plumbers and musicians 

Unite on the streets

Of New York City

To say that we won’t back down

Lay down

Or roll over

Not until the fascism is over

Nor the rains have passed

We will stand together at last

United in diversity

United stronger through this diversity 

For arrogance knows now mercy

And neither do we
