The ever nostalgic Alfred Nobel
Allows the EU heads to mega swell
Wonder if our friends down in Greece

A few thoughts about why on Earth should the European Union be

    Harry says what so many of us think, power is a heady game and most seem to use it for their advantage. Well said my friend!

    To answer your question, I think this one qualifies as a clerihew. It follows the format, Arild. The last two words are not exact rhymes but they are pretty close. A soupmail for ya.
