Preparing for the Womens' March

I've never done it before
Marching down city streets with thousands of others
Sign high in the air
It's amateurish
I'm calling for the requirement of 
Intelligent leadership for a democracy to work.
We don't have one in the current president
The Mr. who I will never call my president
The one who eliminated the white house website
Links to civil liberties, climate change and LBGT
As he paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue.
I've never done this before,
Taping some used white board to a paint stick
From McGuckin, my local hardware store,
Decorating it in a hotel room the night before.
I'll be there with some tens of thousands tomorrow.
Hear our roar.
