Entry #2, Bella Stander poems

There once was a querying horse
who wanted his book to be Tor's
He bucked and he pleaded but
never was headed
till he Bella Stander mistreated.

Please don't think me unkind, but do NOT quit your day job. Limerics, to really work, need that rythm:
DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah
DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah
DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah
DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah
DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah DUM-dah-dah

Um, I'm not the writer of this limerick, but really - does anyone on the planet ever get the option of quitting their day job when they write poetry? Poets do not make a lot of money writing poetry, generally.

I liked the limerick just fine; it was funny. The last line had me puzzling a bit as to what it meant, due to the odd sentence structure. That was the only flaw.

anon1: its not supposed to be a limeric, but a haiku.

No, I'm not the author of this one.
