Happy International Women’s Month — Infamous Laydeez Series: Where y’at, Harriet?

Harriet was but a slave
When her angry master gave
Her youthful head a clout
That made her narcoleptic so
Off to sudden sleep she’d go
This moment here, next moment out
But did she let that stop her? No!

Still she led sisters, brothers too
Those piney midnight woodlands through
Slipping past sentries all around
Past each slavering bloody hound
And did her round of day work too
To her oppressors overthrow
She built her Railroad Underground
