Suggestion Schemes require a nack.
Just take the case of Emma Mack.
She saved the Company lots of dough
By leaving out a fastener row.

But Emma thought shed save some more
By leaving out rows two, three, four -
Until she left out every one.
And even then, she wasnt done

She took out stringers, frames and skin
And dumped them in the rubbish bin.
Said Emma, "Now Ive got it made -
"The less I do, the more Im paid!"
