#24-Bella Stander Humerus Poetry Therapy

Oh, what could be worse than a four inch plate?

A writerly beauty with a shallow date or... yuck!...
One with with a hairless, four-inch pate?

A girl of verse could sure do worse if
Our Dear Miss Snark were her humerus nurse.
(What chance would that bone have to mend
By soaking in pails of gin on end?)

And Bella's prose would not make sense
Had she met a brick wall and not a fence...
A terminal sentence for all book lovers
Who live to read Under The Covers.

Finally, Stander should thank the Stars and Venus...
That the Doc didn't offer her a four inch p*n!$.

That would not be a funny bone.

This certainly needs a Beverage Alert prominently displayed. I almost sprayed my keyboard and monitor with tea.

LOL!
