Our blog Poet seeks to understand greatness:

“The Maestro”

Chetty picked his VAMdolin
At Nobel-chasing speed
Duncan played the basket rim
And Rhee, she played the rheed

Coleman played his Core-o-net
Moskowitz, the lyre
Billy Gates played tête-à-tête
With Duncan and with higher

Sanders beat his cattle drum
Devalue Added Model
Pseudo-science weighted sum
Mathturbated twaddle

John King played the slide VAMbone
But Maestro was Obama
Who hired the band and set the tone
For Betsy’s Grizzly drama

(William Sanders, an economist, applied his
“cattle growth model” to students to create teacher VAM)
