One and halfscore, the posts are showing,
win, place, and show united is rejection as a marking;
the middle five of the whole, a type of setting,
the last eight is a man prone to writing.

Four in one, its middle two is a cannon booming,
with bursts of fire like a hundred stars dancing;
within that center is a country if you're looking,
a city you'll find,if you focus on the beginning.

Its first quarter is a letter with a greeting,
the next,a memory with one millennium missing;
then a duke,a prince or a king,
the last,an endless catch in the sport of fishing.

QUESTION: What is the word?


The following makes the riddle a piece of cake.

Eleven posts is the number of letters in the spelling,
top three finishers,a mark used in correcting,
the last eight is an author of love and loving,
four is the count after syllabicating.

The cannon in the middle is a candle for celebrating,
in the city lives the shepherd who gives a blessing,
the country is Islamic,rich and oil-producing,
all these found in the center of the readers calling.

The letter or mark to the past is referring,
the memory allows none but watching,
the royal blood, their kind must have a bearing,
the catch is a fish with its tail missing.

QUESTION: What is the reader's calling?
