Since there was some discussion as to what the rules of
a clerihew should be, I consulted my friend, Matthew Francis
on the matter- of course, by clerihew:
talking about the clerihew…
must you only have a name in the first line,
or, is having more than that, in your opinion, fine?
I received this reply:
devotees of the clerihew art,
on the principles of E. C. Bentley.
So, feeling a sense of liberation, I give you today’s:
(David Beckham in the Royal Box, 28/6/14
by Brian Minkoff- London Pixels)
David Beckham, aka ‘Becks,’
you seemed a model for your sex,
but your alleged obsession to receive a gong,
may taint your after-shave with a lingering pong.
