When she became the Editor-in-Chief of the student newspaper,
she got the glory & everything that came with it—
the academic scholarship & the accusations of censorship,
the joy of a byline & the stresses of other people’s deadlines,

But she learned to suppress her inner Captain Queeg,
for leadership,
though not her strong suit,
was a card she had learned to play.
