Ann’s witness  
You will follow our rules. 
I will not.  
Our rules are just and good.  

They are not.  
Who made you the judge? 
God did. 
How did that happen? 
When my conscience was formed  
To follow the law of love.  
There is no rule greater.  
I will follow  
No rule to destroy, 
No rule to discriminate,  
No rule to oppress.  
If you make these,  
disobedience will follow,  
BUT NO GUILT!
