The Bad Instructor Anthem

(to the tune of "Star Spangled Banner")

Copyright © 2014 Kevin Ahern


This was inspired by a former student of mine who complained (justifiably) that professors

aren’t careful with instructions they leave for students on Blackboard.


I say did you see

Posts on Blackboard from me?

Where the verbiage I used

Led you all to be confused


Those instructions I say

Were not meant to convey

Any meaning of note

And they’re nothing you should quote


The assignments you write

Due at dawn’s ear-ly light

Should never possess

Any errors nonetheless


Yes Blackboard gives me ways of

Mys-ti-fy-ing all of you-u-u

And that pain you’re feeling now

Is just me a-turnin’ screws
