Taylor Mali does a good job delivering his poem "What teachers make". This is a bit old coming from 2005 but still valid. There are other versions on YouTube that are not as edited for language.
This is using language judiciously and effectively. I approve of the content within this context.
Of note, Billy Collins (former poet laureate of the US) is also on the stage with Taylor when this was recorded.
