When Merit Pay Would Save Money

By Elton Camp

Miss Grundy’s the best teacher at school
Yet paid no more than its biggest fool

If he has the same experience and degree
How that’s fair is nearly impossible to see

Her work’s interesting & academically sound
The failed coach is the biggest dunce around

He rambles about sports day after day
Really, all he’s doing is stealing his pay

Taxpayers must wait for him to expire
Or ride the system until he can retire

The state legislature merit pay won’t permit
It might cost more, they say and have a fit

Miss Grundy is joining a growing move
Politicians their worth for pay should prove

If, on merit, those worthies receive their pay
Millions of dollars would saved every day
