Did I Miss Anything?


This just in from Prof. Maria Frawley: the hilarious-acerbic poem about class called "Did I Miss Anything?" by Canadian poet Tom Wayman.

Read the poem online here. And there is a fabulous "FAQ" with the poet about his poem at Canadian Poetry Online, where, among other things, Wayman reflects on why his poem has hit such a nerve with teachers.

Maria reports that a colleague is thinking of writing a companion piece, "What Do I Need to Get an A?" Any other proposals? Student ripostes?
