I signed up all excited
Higher education beckoned
But now I’m feeling somewhat mitred
My wings are clipped
I am not soaring
My shoulders bowed and head is dipping
Immersed in writing
and in referencing.
I do not care just where periods go
Does it really matter if I misplace a comma too
In the reference list so long and dreary
It’s Saturday night, the footy’s on
And I am editing and will be for so long.
