Betty the Cook

Written by: Andrea Dietrich

What a spectacle Betty was making
of herself in the kitchen while baking.
She kept tripping and falling.
Other cooks found it galling
all the dishes each day she kept breaking.

Today it’s much better she’s faring,
for the cause was made known for her erring.
Betty now feels relieved
that her boss is not peeved
since new spectacles she has been wearing!


(this has now been revised as a quintain for Joe maverick's contest.
If you happen to see the quintain version. I'm just curious to 
to know which seems more effective, this limerick version or the quintain form?)
