Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World ~ Harriet Tubman

Acknowledging Harriet Tubman

Thes movs me froms planashuns to planashuns, huntis musksrats, pulings coten, chopins woods till I’s run off, till I’s gots the idea tos savs mys peple.

I’s sing that song when I’s bring ‘em up from de south;

Swing low sweet chariot a coming for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot a coming for to carry me home

My bruddas and my sistahs. Up from de south. Tese was perolus times, the 1850’s. The Undersgrouns Railsrud, de call it. Trew away you chans, fredums bruddas, freedoms, sistahs!

Trew the swamps, the savesowners trackin us ever step. I’s carrys a rifle and tells ‘em, “yous go bac, I’s gots bulets for yous.”

Nows, all different. Nows, theys tracks yous.

Yous calls, yous emails, alls days, alls nigts and they’s gots the bullets. Bilions of rouns.

Yous think theys not gonna use ‘em?

Hers this and keeps des songs close to you;

Swing low sweet chariot a coming for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot a coming for to carry me home

I’s makes it. Yous can, too.
