One of my regular blog checks is Jonathan Rogers (http://jonathan-rogers.com/). He does some fun stuff, especially Audience Participation Friday with encouragement to join in. Recently the APF was to suggest future APF topics to which I lagged for quite a while and finally chimed in with Clerihews.
A clerihew is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. ..........
A clerihew has the following properties:
It is biographical and usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of view; it pokes fun at mostly famous people
It has four lines of irregular length (for comic effect); the third and fourth lines are usually longer than the first two
The rhyme structure is AABB; the subject matter and wording are often humorously contrived in order to achieve a rhyme
The first line consists solely (or almost solely) of the subject's name.
Since then I've been stuck on commenting with clerihews about his subject matter.
Not being above a joke myself (especially as a find my life quite humorous and enjoyable and in some sense a joke that I get to be a part of it)
gave up on most written pulp.
Now I listen while doing a drive,
Tis safer than a book going sixty-five.
Feel free to build your own about me, or yourself, or anybody.
