My Professor

He really does me in...

He mispronounces “America”
Says he has a passport from somewhere-ica 
Therefore thinks he’s a citizen 
Then, oh Lord, we begin again

And, he just goes on....

He has been a poor dirt farmer from long ago
A businessman twice owned
An accountant is what I am looking for 
Since this is what I am going towards

No need for presentations...

He can just talk it all out and about
Explain Balance sheets and Income Statements
All with his hands and to his credit
He does not even have to edit

I’m learning very well...

My scores are low
My eyes are heavy, half the class is asleep
I keep wondering, “What am I doing here?”
Please tell me, is it him or just me?

    Oh it's him.......whenever you feel alert and enjoying the learning it's because the delivery is engaging...clearly he isn't so interesting as a teacher to keep you from those heavy eyelids. Good Luck!
