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.
