What's a Clerihew?
Four short lines about someone,
Famous now or dead and gone.
A pair of couplets for this game,
The first line is your victim’s name.

Thomas Alva Edison
Invented the bulb with discipline.
Without the Wizard of Menlo Park
We’d all be living in the dark.
Had a relatively brilliant mind.
If you should doubt or ever dare to
He could simply mc² you.
The water lilies of Monet
Drift upon a canvas bay.
A master of his profession,
He made a good Impression.
Eliot was under the delusion
That everything's an allusion.
Each line from T.S.
Requires a P.S.
