John Winston Ono Lennon
From Britain to Brooklyn, decked in denim

I see that you have really taken to the clerihew, and that it has take to you too!!… I wasn't a Lennon fan, myself, but this clerihew is neatly done. (I wasn't a Vladimir Lenin fan either, LOL.) Best wishes, Gershon

Lol... I really like the form. I read somewhere that some view the Clerihew as the literate cousin of the Limerick :) Thanks, again, for introducing me to it. ~Mark
