At dversepoets.com today we are asked to write as a challenge, a Clerihew, a poetic form invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley (187 5 - 1956) It is a short and fun biographical verse with two rhyming couplets.
Amal married George Clooney
He certainly is no gooney
She wears tailored two piece suits
Her persona was enough to seduce
Most traveled was Marco Polo
He sailed and explored the world solo
From his escapades inspiration was drawn
What women did he discover in the land of Khan?
Oh, how I loved Santa Claus,
his rosy cheeks and schnozz
Always jolly, in his red suit ate popcorn
His whiskers like a snowstorm
