Lament of the Copy Desk.
If I were only a galley slave
With a manacle on my wrist
And a ball attached to my ankle bare
And a tough oar In my fist
I'd be as happy as happy could bo
Sweeping the waves of the restless sea.

Tolling with pencil and racking my head.
Cursing at copy boys, answering phones.
Cutting and sloshing regardless of moans.
Grinding out headlines and raving In vain
For a story as big as the wreck: of the
Bluffing reporters and bulling the boss.
Figuring dope on the last fire loss.
Telling for paper and paste In a breath
And more fearful of scoops than of grim,
Oh. happy the slave as he sweeps o'er the
X thousand times freer than you or me!
