POEM: A Few Clerihew [Day 7 NaPoMo: Clerihew]

Edmund Clerihew Bentley
delivered his sarcasm gently
with just four lines
using the simplest of rhymes



It’s said that Adolf Hitler
shoulda been killed when he was littler,
but maybe he’d not have been reigning
if someone had bought one of his paintings



Edgar Allan Poe
always wrote in the Flow
his secret was a life of melancholy
you don’t write “The Raven” while jolly



President Woodrow Wilson
might’ve lost votes in the millions
think how one would do
with first term Spanish Flu
