Day 28 ~ Let's Write a Clerihew Poem

Day 28 - How to write a Clerihew Poem

A clerihew is a four line long poem.
1. They are four lines long.
2. The first and second lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other.
3. The first line names a person, and the second line ends with something that rhymes with the name of the person.
4. A clerihew should be funny.

When Pollyanna came to town
all the people wore a frown.
She spread gladness, hope, and cheer
and kicked their grumpies in the rear.

Little Anai is in her room
Dressed up in her princess costume.
She’s supposed to be taking her nap
But instead is singing and running her yap.

I'm told my son Cory likes to play
Although he has to work all day
When he gets a chance
He puts on his basketball pants!
