A while back I was watching Def Poetry on HBO. It is an excellent program if you’ve never watched it. There was one poet I really liked. This poet was a teacher. He was very passionate reciting the poem that he had written. The title of his poem is “What Do Teachers Make?” Recently I went to my friend Joey’s site and noticed he had a video of this very poem. I had to share it. I’ve been looking for it ever since but didn’t know the poet’s name. I now present Taylor Mali’s brilliant poem.
