A clerihew is defined here:

You are invited to make up your own clerihews and post them in this thread. Here are a few of mine:

Harry S. Truman
Denied that atom bombs were inhuman.
He said: "We must stop Japan's bravado -
This is no laughing matter like The Mikado".

King Charles the Second
Is generally reckoned
To have signed official papers
While having indiscreet sexual capers.

The younger William Pitt
Was a highly precocious Brit.
Prime Minister at twenty-four,
He was driven to drink by the Napoleonic War.

Friedrich Nietzsche's writing
Is pernicious, although exciting.
His style has more muscle
Than that of sane philosophers like Bertrand Russell.
