May Poetic License

Click over on Pensieve to join! Here’s the rules: They are four lines long. The first and second lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other. The first line names a person, and the second line ends with something that rhymes with the name of the person. A clerihew should be funny. As far as theme, let’s go with May celebrations–OF COURSE you know about Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, but did you also know May celebrates Asparagus Month, National Bar-B-Que Month, National Hamburger Month and National Mental Health Month?

I asked my husband Matthew,
Would you like to barbeque?
He said with a smile,
“after while crocodile.”


  1. EXCELLENT Jill! You nailed this! And it made me smile, too (bonus points for YOU!).

    Very convenient to be married to someone with a name that rhymes with one of the themes :).
