Humor - The Submission Process


This Old Book
By Elaine Togneri


This old book, ruled ed one, he won't look until it's done.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown,
This old book came rolling home

This old book, jeered ed two, author doesn't have a clue.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown,
This old book came rolling home

This old book, claimed ed three, lacks a snappy repartee.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown,
This old book came rolling home

This old book, droned ed four, he has seen this plot before.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown,
This old book came rolling home

This old book, screeched ed five, has no pacing, plot or drive.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown,
This old book came rolling home

This old book, swore ed six, needs a book doctor to fix.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown
This old book came rolling home

This old book, pled ed seven, needs the who, how, where. Oh heaven!
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown
This old book came rolling home

This old book, snapped ed eight, the market's closed, you are too late.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown
This old book came rolling home

This old book, screamed ed nine, he didn't like a single line.
With an alas, think I'll pass, one more market's blown
This old book came rolling home

This old book, sang ed ten, revise and send it back again.
With a smile after such a while, my true market's found
This old book's on solid ground.
