First Day Story: Deceiving!

I've got an assignment that I need to burnish
But I don't know where to start
I have the fresh air
I have the constants
Hand me my future book now.
Oh, it arrived in a majuscule form
But the minuscule confused me
So I run to the morgue
And check all the profiles
Because the Devil's waiting for me.

I'm not a cub but I love spit news
Oh, I love adventures too
I love the circus make up
I go for cheesecakes with self important by-lines
-strong and degrading.

I ordered canopies
Those placed in a hellbox
This is irony but I'm not ironic
From original, I created the hand arts
With fascinating cut lines
Engraving the fakes
Oh, I love the pork chops!

Now my human interest jumps
It has the mandatory deadhead
Oh it's a libel so I kill some of it
Now it's free from obscenity.
At last, I wrap up my files
One is a break
Some are drop in
Some are scoops
I have the magtab
I have the hand-out my dear!

Now I wait for my press release.

So much to do, so much to consider in this your first day. I smiled as I read, remembering my first days writing for a publisher of 8 newspapers in the region. Cutlines, headlines, deadlines, press passes, where's my glasses, kiss some *sses!
