    Schools need the money more than the parks or any animals. Our teachers are grossly underpaid and most of our students don’t even get to eat good meals for free or have new textbooks.
    I urge everyone to follow the lead of the teachers’ union and vote no on this one.

    Save our schools, not waste money like fools,
    On useless parks and wildlife.
    Our schools are not effective tools,
    Until more money reduces strife.
    The lottery was always for the kids,
    So vote no to shrink the bids.
    Of others who want a piece of the pie,
    Just to save a tree or animal that might die.
    Whilst our children cannot even learn,
    Beause the lottery money does the churn.
    And ends up someplace else,
    For the woodland creatures’ health.
    Enough I say, enough of this mess,
    Keep the money flowing in largess.
    So the kids and teachers will all be happy,
    And keep up the work that is so crappy.
