I wonder when I hear Freedom's Verses, to what do Oppressors Listen?

I wonder when I hear Freedom's Verses,
to what do Oppressors Listen? My songs
will be Continuous for the Poems I birth
are Inherited from Kind Hearts with Soft
spots for Freedom.  I know its Odd Signal
came through Me from the Past pues desde los
ancestros? It is in the Vasquez Blood.
Oh really? And Mr. Morris's Eyes
soft brown delicate Angel Faced visage
Oh Evon is such a Dreamer and was Fauned
Upon by Our Mother who was Never
Heard to Utter even One Unkind Word.
Goddfrey took me aside and Said, "Edith,
You must always be Courteous." c/s

I really enjoy your poetry and the way it seems to wander but doesn't really. I never wondered about what the oppressors are listening to. now, for a fleeting moment, i wonder.
