Clerihew

-

Invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley, a popular English novelist and humourist, Clerihew is written considering the following guidelines –

  • It is four lines long.
  • The rhyme scheme followed is A/A/B/B
  • The first line of the first stanza ends with the name of a personality and the second line ends with a word rhyming with that name. The stanzas that follow need not follow this rule.
  • The poem should be funny.

I have attempted a clerihew where each stanza follows the above mentioned rules. Hop over to the Poetry section and read The Stalwarts.
