"Poem With No Title" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Billie Nardozzi   

Do not ever feel alone
Because love has got you down
You just lift your head way up
And know that there's someone else around
Yes someone I tell you now
Who's gonna come right in to your life
And make it all brand new
And take away all of the strife
So don't you ever feel alone

"What Is Poverty?" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jo Goodwin Parker   

The following selection was published in America's Other Children: Public Schools Outside Suburbs, by George Henderson in 1971 by the University of Oklahoma Press. The author has requested that no biographical information about her be distributed. The essay is a personal account, addressed directly to the reader, about living in poverty.

You ask me what is poverty? Listen to me. Here I am, dirty, smelly, and with no "proper" underwear on and with the stench of my rotting teeth near you. I will tell you. Listen to me. Listen without pity. I cannot use your pity. Listen with understanding. Put yourself in my dirty, worn out, ill-fitting shoes, and hear me.

"The Funny Ways Of Life" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Billie Nardozzi   

Wonderful years
They had spent together
And hoped it would last
Forever and ever
But just like the weather
That surely does change
Their life they just had to
For things were different
And so were they
And their love was diminishing
Day by day
So to avoid the risk
Of an ugly end
They decided to part
And begin again
