All I ask

Have your say

For many years I’ve read the Star

More than I care to say

I’ve embraced all the changes

You’ve made along the way

But when I read the paper now

It gets in such a tangle

The pages will not stay straight

They end up at an angle

As I turn the pages over

One falls onto the floor

It takes so long to straighten it

That it just becomes a chore

I know what you are thinking

“Why not download the app”?

I like my coffee by my side

With the paper on my lap

The way to fix the problem

Is such a simple task

It only takes two staples

That is all I ask
