Edgar Allan Poe
never did he have a foe.
If not for that raucous Raven
who bolsters his loss of a fair maiden.
NaPoWriMo Day 14 – Write a Clerihew. Clerihew is a four-line biographical poem that pokes fun at a famous person. Rhyme scheme: AABB.
This is the first I’ve heard of this form. I thought, ‘oh! easy peasy.’ I already knew I’d write about Poe but didn’t count on being stuck for the next three lines once I sat down to write. Too little sleep and too much caffeine. Must practice some more with this four-line fiend.
