2014 Summer Tour–Imminent!


‘Twas the night before DMA
And all through the house,
Equipment was charging
With no fires to douse.

Staff shirts were packed with
Sneakers and socks,
Shorts and necessities
And three alarm clocks.

Staff will converge in Bama to start
They know all the modules and
Procedures by heart.

Then off to Kentucky,
UARK and ‘lando,
To Texas and PA
Illinois and Ohio.

Colorado and Charlotte
Cali then ‘home’
To UMASS we’ll go
Twelve states we did roam.

A dream that was started
Oh, so long ago,
We all still pay forward
A debt we all owe.

With trust, faith and dust
From a pixie who flew
See you soon DMA Staff
We’ve got lots to do!
