2. Three ‘Political Celebrity’ CLERIHEWS

A Clerihew is a comic verse consisting of two couplets and a specific rhyming scheme, aabb.  It was invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956) at the age of 16. Normally the first line names a person, and the second line ends with something that rhymes with the name of the person. (From: ‘Shadow Poetry’)

Winston Spencer Churchill,
Man of many a skill,
Became our leader in conflict,
And ensured that Adolf got licked.

Tony Wedgwood Benn,
Unusual among men,
Gave up his birthright title
For one simpler and more vital.

Farage and Boris Johnson
Did something rather awesome;
They led us via Brexit
To that famous EU exit
