2 Clerihews for Tinker

Famous candidate Sarah Palin,

Ran with her cohort but ended failin’

She lives like moose in remote Alaska

Near enough to see says she if you ask her


The egocentric Donald Trump

Owned casinos that he had to dump

In over the top creations they couldn't compare

With the bizarre construction of his hair




(First attempts Tink, don't know if I got them right?) I liked the one you did on Jacko. Frank

icon_biggrin.png Frank, I am so happy that you gave one of the verse forms a try. The Clerihew is a fun form, it is hard to go wrong with it. Yours are very funny, I especially like the Donald Trump one, it has great rhythm as well as being humorously spot on.

Hi Frank,


Your title deceived me. At first I thought you wrote two poems about Tinker.

Anyway, I like your Clerihews, they are fun to read. Writing about people, that means you have to know them well.

Is it? I would like to have a try, too.


Thanks for sharing.

Nice done Frank. You provoke us to do the same :). Thank you. Your try is wonderful.
