Lyrics to WordPress Blues

Everybody and their brother knows, that shortcodes blow
They make it hard for beginners to figure out how to make their content show
They have a steep learning curve so users who don’t know
The basics of how code works figure things out quite slow

I’ve got all these issues, it feels like I’ll never lose, these WordPress blues

As a plugin developer I’m disappointed that dependency management isn’t there
And the sluggish wp-admin sometimes makes me pull out my hair
Is there anything more useless than every default dashboard widget
And can anyone tell me why WP_List_Table has access set to private

I’ve got all these issues, it feels like I’ll never lose, these WordPress blues

Pervasive abuses of admin_notices are just obscene
Every time I see one I just want to punch my screen
One thing that seriously makes me consider changing careers
Is every time some trace of #WPDrama appears

I’ve got all these issues, it feels like I’ll never lose, these WordPress blues

I passionately wish that every single home page slider would die in a fire
Along with the concept of selling licenses that don’t expire
I’m not a huge fan of the plugin and theme editors built into core
And this cheap pricing race to the bottom is something I truly abhor

I’ve got all these issues, it feels like I’ll never lose, these WordPress blues
