ridicule the fraidy-cats

So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds,
but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it.

Lord, let your laughter ring forth.
Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats,
rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce.

And when you get through kickin’ ass
and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight,
be sure to tell those who come after
how much fun it was.

— Molly Ivins (1944-2007), Texan political commentator and author.
