2015 Day 26 – A sprinkling of clerihews

Thomas Alva Edison
Didn’t find fame in the field of medicine
Though he improved our sight
By inventing the electric light.

Cain and Abel
Had a relationship that was unstable.
God said “Oy, Cain leave it!”
But he didn’t – would you Adam and Eve it?

Dorothy Parker
Was queen of the cutting remark. Her
Tongue was sharp for verbal slaughter –
A good role model for your daughter.

Nicholas Clegg
In a round hole is a square peg.
By hook or crook his mission
Is to crawl into another coalition.

Note: The prompt was to write a clerihew. These are rhymed, humorous quatrains involving a specific person’s name.
