General Petraeus

General David Petraeus,
Caught up in a scandal outrageous.
Leadership was his forte,
Til he succumbed to lust and foreplay.

Entered into Nathan's yesterday's
clerihew contest.

    How the mighty fall prey to this age old diversion. As John says, the bigger they are... cheers, Jack

    Kim, I'm keeping my eye on this one. When I ever get around to it, I have a friend and we intend to ask to use great clerihews in an anthology! I think you have others I have been seeing. Keep up your good work.
