Since tomorrow marks the first day of April, I thought something silly would be fun for our stretch this week. A clerihew is a short verse that is biographical and humorous. Here are the rules for writing a clerihew.
- The poem must be four lines long.
- The rhyme scheme must be a/a/b/b.
- The first line should consist of the name of a person.
- The poem should be biographical and humorous. Often times clerihews poke fun at famous people.
The enemy of Harry PotterSo, what kind of clerihew will you write? Will your subject be literary or political? Leave me a comment about your poem and I'll post them here later this week. Have fun with this one!
Was a scheming plotter.
I can't tell you what he's called; I'd be ashamed
To name "he who must not be named."
