A freeman once said…


“Why should I walk around a slave

when there is plenty of space

for me to roam and live a free life

without being supervised

or directed in the manner

another man requires?

Why should I be under you

when I can paint my sky blue

in the way and manner I choose to

and fill it up with birds that coo?

I cant be your slave for no reason

I cant sell my freedom for no price

I am a free man

and choose to maintain my stand.

If your offers

are in exchange for my freedom

then you had better not offered.”
