This Clerihew's For You

Don't cross swords with A Poet Destroyer,
pretentious jousts really do annoy her
Her weapon of choice: a crossbow or a saber
she'll Cupid your mind, turn your rhymes to confetti paper

Dedicated to Poet Destroyer for being the first one to welcome the Romantic Warrior to the Poetry Soup community. Much love to you.

Olive Eloi

There is a girl, Olive_eloi
Who is in love with a Pinoy
She wants to tell him what she feels
But loses out kicking her heels.

Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind

Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind

Farrokh Bulsara a.k.a. Freddie Mercury
British singer, songwriter known universally
Confirmed he had AIDS and then died the next day
His music through Queen still rocks us all the way

Came a man from Zanzibar named Farrokh
Whose tastes were both flamboyant and baroque 
For fame he was ready
Changed his name to Freddie
After his death millions still love this bloke

A Heathrow baggage handler prior to fame
Wrote a song about his favorite cat, Delilah by name
In his personal life he was very shy, gentle and kind
His life and times are “guaranteed to blow your mind”

Clinton and Lewinsky - Bawdy

Bill Clinton, president
was seldom hesitant,
'It's not adultery,' he said,
'if somebody is "giving you head."'

Monica Lewinsky and dress
are famous for a yucky mess;
when DNA proved Clinton a liar,
he wished he'd shot a little higher...

Prince Jahan and Mumtaz

Eyes met as they walked the market place
Mumtaz and Prince Jahan hearts did race
betrothed for five years before his bride
fourteen children before she died

Prince Jahan it was true love at first sight
distraught at her demise, a shrine of ivory white
built in her honour "Crown of Palaces: now stands
the Taj Mahal is famous throughout the lands

Betsy Ross

Betsy Ross of Colonial days
Could never imagine the ways
Our United States flag would be blessed
To fly on the Moon and Mount Everest.

Tom Cruise Clerihews

World famous actor Tom Cruise
in talent and looks cannot lose.
Success is the guy’s middle name.
It’s his love life he just can’t maintain!

A younger and hotter Tom Cruise
must have had to wear lifts in his shoes.
His first wife Nicole was so tall!
Did size ever matter at all?

With a much younger starlet, Tom Cruise
got attached, and it made for great news
when he jumped on a sofa with glee
for the whole world to see on TV.

The now over-50 Tom Cruise,
 to avoid more marital blues,
ought to find a new partner who
adores Scientology too.

Charlie Browns, alias Pig Pen,
wears overalls time and again.

Count Dracula's Love

Count Dracula’s Love

Count Dracula’s love is blood—sweet and bright red, 
And he wants to bite your neck while you’re in bed!
Seeking his next eternal bride on this All Hallows’ Eve,
His “undead” bite makes him happy and isn’t a pet peeve!

Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth the first of England
Had many suitors who vied for her hand
She doubted love, or was not keen 
And so she died a virgin queen.

Where You'Ll Find Me

In forests full of winding trees
With a gusty flower-scented breeze
And tiger-cats forever running free
This is where you'll find me

I live in oceans, blue and vast
I stand on a great ship's mast
Pirates come, we share some tea
That is where you'll find me

Underground, where monsters roam
Waging war over a lost home
Low deep growls the humans flee
This is where you'll find me.

Flying high with butterflies
Holding children when they cry
Thinking about when you kissed me
That is where you'll find me

All alone in an empty place 
Coming, going without a trace.
An undying romance, love that whirls
You will find me in your DreamWorld

Flounder From the Little Mermaid

I am Flounder, wild and young.
I flap my fins and love to have fun.
And sometimes when I eat bad algae,
I make the water a little bit bubbly!

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Hindus fighting Muslims, and brother slaying brother,

          made peace to save his life, loved more than any other.

               Dear Bapu, your greatest weapons, thereof ...

     the power, nonviolence, the strength ... LOVE.

Who Did It

Many children asked for funny stories before bed time.
  We did it.
More children love to hear praises than excuses.
  We did it.
More and more children demand for rewards
  than punishment.  We did it.
Most children want cellphones than parents...
  Who did it?

Micky Mouse

Micky Mouse
Has his very own Clubhouse
His best intentions often go awry
Minnie helps with a smile, "Hello big guy"

Donald Duck, 
Has a temper that makes him go amuck. 
Often annoying Micky, he thinks he knows everything. 
His temper tantrums rile him up to a fighting swing

Mae West and Me

My husband fell in love with the beautiful Mae West.
I knew it was because of her oversized breast.
"Mae is beautiful," I retorted,  "but small chested girls also like to hug."
"You and Mae," he laughed, "is like comparing a Cadillac to a Volkswagen bug."
