More Clerihews in ‘Light’ Poetry Magazine

Three more of my clerihews have just been published in the latest issue of the online Light poetry magazine ( This time, the subjects are:

  • Edward R. Murrow,
  • Robert Frost, and
  • Bill and Hillary Clinton.

This also allows me to post in this blog copies of the four clerihews of mine that were published in Light magazine’s Summer 2013 issue. Read those clerihews below.

Marshall McLuhan

Marshall McLuhan
Brought the seance to ruin
When he was able to presage
The medium’s message.

Yul Brynner

Whenever Yul Brynner
Played a devil or a sinner
He shaved off every follicle
To appear even more diabolical.

Winston Churchill

The wrath of Winston Churchill
Was actual, not virtual,
When he was told to quit cigars
And drinking gin in bars.

Marshal Tito

Marshal Josip Broz Tito’s
Dislike of mosquitoes
Was mostly because they disturb ya
Throughout Montenegro and Serbia.
