Rosa sat, so Martin could walk
Martin walked so Barack could run
Barack is running so our children can fly
It is inspiring but not original. Here is the original from Flip Wilson:
"Before this church can do great things for God, it's gotta learn to crawl."
"Let it crawl, Rev" shouts the congregation, "Let it crawl."
"And when it's learned to crawl" the preacher continued, "it's gotta learn to walk."
"Let it walk," the congregation responds loudly, "Let it walk!"
Then, fixing them with his eye, the preacher shouted, "And when it's learned to walk, it's gotta run and we all know a church can't run without money!"
There is a momentary silence, then the congregation responds,
"Let it crawl, Rev, let it crawl!"
