As I sit and stare at the pages

Of newspapers yet to print

I find myself staring for ages

At my stylebook for a hint.

Woeful are the rules for “said”

And where the comma goes;

I try to keep it all in my head

But out my ears it always flows.

Oh Mustang Daily of mine,

How I edit you for miles!

May you not take up all my time

Thanks to my love for AP Style.
