Private Beetle Bailey

The infernal bane of Private Beetle Bailey,

   Is Sergeant Snorkel who pounds him daily!

      Beetle has mastered the fine art of goldbricking,

         And somehow manages to survive his daily licking!

    Did you see the one where Sarg beat him up recently. Beetle said, don't worry, I'll be back in the comic strips tomorrow. Love your clerihews Bob.
