    Furthermore, ‘Telephone Conversation’ and ‘Still I Rise’ differentiate in structure and form, conveying the voices’ indignation at being made inferior, perhaps reflecting wish to weaponise their humour – wanting to use the negativity of racism’s exasperation in a positive manner, using their self-respect to fight through the mocking of such oppressors. Soyinka writes ‘Telephone Conversation’ in free verse, seemingly appropriate for the setting of a phone call. With the combination of free verse and lack of rhyme scheme, the raw emotion of both voice and land-lady in approaching intolerance is heightened, magnifying difference in morale and life experience.
