Clerihew

Edmund Clerihew Bentley

Rebelled in school most gently

Wrote four line rhymes in class

This poem to a friend would he pass.


Hillary Rodham Clinton

Says in politics she is not done

Whether personal or private

Hill says two phones she should get.


Young Harry “Handcuff” Houdini

Would tie himself up rather keenly

He said with a shout

Help, I can’t get out!


NaPoWriMo prompt to write a clerihew 4/25/15

Here is one by Edmund Clerihew Bentley himself –

Lewis Carrolll

Bought sumptuous apparel

And built an enormous palace

Out of the profits of Alice.
