Clerihew 001

BOB HOPE

Mr Robert Hope
always acted the dope
made his wealth from jokes
and his applause from folks.

WHAT’S IN A SOUND

Mr Les Paul
Where would we all,
Be without your sound
In this, the creation that you found.   

Harry J Horsman 2012

    I think it was Les Paul who said something to the effect 'my guitar is my Psychiatrist, bartender, mother', etc...I was a big fan of Mr. Hope as well...great clerihew, great win, Harry - Tim

    Both these clerihews are wonderfully created by you. The first is matchless and the second one of course comes second. Great work to show a little off the track Poem my friend and thank you for your comments on my Bible Poem. Love and best wishes....RavindraK...Harry Horsman

    nice ones, harry! i like them both...

    these are GREAT, Harry. In the Bob HOpe one, you could also use the word "earn" in place of "made" and that would go better with applause, do you think? Keep up doing more of these. Love them.
