5 Clerihews

Jennifer Nettles

Is lovelier, by far, than six trillion rose-petals:

She sings for a band

(Actually, a duo) called Sugarland.




Archishop Welby,

I was hoping you could tell me

How to get God into my heart, my soul, my noggin.

Or should I ask the late Archbishop Coggan?




Kanye West

Thinks he's the best

But I wonder if he recalls

Biggie Smalls.





Hasn't made a film that's any good

In twenty years, maybe thirty.

They're all too violent or too dirty.




Thomas DeFreitas

Had a reckless poetic afflatus

With which he'd torment, every day,

The denizens of Poetbay.

And we love you for it.

Love these whimsical four lined Clerihews. Love their biographical quality. The rhymes seem forced, but I guess that is one of the elements of this form of poetry. The last one made me chuckle.
