So In last weeks creative writing I wrote in one of my poems I wanted to write a Clerihew.. I only knew it was a type of a poem. So today I decided to look it up…
Here is the definition she gives a Clerihew.
A clerihew is ‘a humorous pseudo-biographical quatrain, rhymed as two couplets, with lines of uneven length more or less in the rhythm of prose”. The name of the subject is usually at the end of the first line (sometimes the second line) and is well known. The humour of the clerihew is whimsical rather than satiric.
