Are there any songs that have lyrics with a similar voice/diction to the poet Gary Soto? (More specifically, his diction in the poem "Oranges.") I kind of need an answer by tomorrow morning! Please help!

    Here's Gary Soto's poem:

    If another teacher reads this poem, he or she might be able to think of something.
