Jones (Cathy Zeta) didn’t say “Hello”.
She felt violated, we know.
It was OK to picture that bash;
For cash.


The engineer James Watt,
Watched a boiling pot.
He thought, “Will steam lift the lid?”
It did.

Yo Yo Ma, clever fellow,
makes his living playing cello;
Just a $lice
would be nice.

Coffeebean, to be replete
creates a rhyme that is concrete,
in addition to
a clerihew.

Orlando Bloom, he leaves me smiling.
As Legolas, he's quite beguiling.
from forest glen to elvin home,
he flitters on through Tolkein's tome.

Ella Fitzgerald, her voice a bright note,
sang high and low straight from her throat.
The lady sang jazz
with a lot of pizzaz.

Jonathan Edwards, a preacher
said that God knew every creature.
and pictured sinners in God's ire,
dangling very close to fire.

HelenDQ, novice of A.Word.A.Day,
Posted a clerihew to enter the fray.
Which replies made her laugh, do you suppose,
So that tea came out of her nose?

Musick is all
about how the sounds fall
the newbies must be wonderin'
what the *feck am I blubberin'

Claire and Hugh'll
go *down by the pool
it's a personal infer
as to *where down does refer

Welcome! AWAD rookies
sit down, have a cookie.
I'm enjoying the spew
of applied clerihew.

Sir Isaac Newton: scientist,
philosopher and alchemist,
from an apple’s inspiration
gave us the law of gravitation.

Robespierre, dreaming of man’s evolution,
Fueled the fires of the French Revolution
With a guillotine.
Very mean.

Nice one CB!

PAINKILLER:

Elitist Jacobin, Jean Paul Marat,
Favoured the rise of the meritocrat.
While bathing his aches away
He met Charlotte Corday.

Canadian General Sam Hill
invented odd gadgets at will.
But his orders soon got so batty
His troops said "What the Sam Hill was that, eh?"

(High school memory of his invention of the shovel with a hole in it that could also be used as a shield while advancing on the enemy.)
