HERE IS A PORTION OF ONE OF HER POEMS---
by melvia miller
it has been said that man advanced from the cavemen
& savage primitive ignorance
but have we really changed this behavior mystery?
have people improved as we start the 21st century?
coyote still tries to off the road-runner
...the japanese bombed pearl harbor
hitler started a war over a superior race
but why copy and conquer others--if that is the case?
child abuse, wife beatings, and road rage
difficult to find news to read on a peace page;
doesn't anybody care
what is happening to the water and air ?
NOTE: This is only an excerpt of one of the poems in the book:
'ALL FOLKS WERE CREATED EQUAL"
