Double-barreled Clerihew

A mister Edmund Clerihew Bentley,
a man whose life was mostly empty
designed a form he named for him,
his middle name, to hide his sin.

And Mister Edmund Clerihew Bentley
would not rest in his grave gently
if he could read my double-barreled entry
calling out his gall intently.


In a rare response to the NaPoWriMo challenge.

  1. Much as it pains me to “like” any Clerihew, I must applaud your efforts to irritate its creator. I didn’t think there could be a type of poetry worse than the limerick, but I must say clerihews have taken first place in that category. You must make at least one more entry soon so as not to have this at the top of your blog file! But–very clevah.
