Tom Hanks Clerihew

Tom Hanks

We are indebted to you, Tom Hanks
for Saving Private Ryan from German tanks

It’s your liberal views we despise
for a shrimp boat captain you’re not very wise

Political pun only
by Gwendolen R.

    oh, yes, Gwen, I started growing my first roses this spring and the yellow ones are already getting tall. I just love them and had no idea how easy they were and how long lasting. Even growing in the snow of October!!

    Loved this gem!!! (puns from two terrific movies, !) the way, we live in a small town (No Calif)......and Tom Hanks mother has lived in our town for many once in awhile he shows up at a restaurant or gas station and causes a bit of excitement. My neighbor recently was getting gas when he walked into the mini-market to by a drink and chips!!

    Alright Gwendolen!...Very nice to see another political conservative on the Soup!...Technically, we are the true 'liberals' here...Conservatives advocate the 'status quo' and liberals advocate 'change'.... and we want change! - Tim

    A good clerihew should make the reader at least chuckle, and yours gave me a good laugh. Not political, just appreciate humor.
