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.

 

*

 

Hollywood

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.

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.
