My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021.
This week, I posted a series of Clerihews that I wrote a few weeks ago in an attempt to get ahead in my daily challenge. At this point, I’ve written enough short poems to carry myself through mid-September (and they’re all scheduled to be published in Twitter).
Recently, as you may have noticed, I’ve gotten into the groove of posting 7 poems of one form one week at a time. Currently, I’ve been working on some lanturnes, and I’m not yet sure which form I will select next.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this week’s Clerihews!
Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

Quite funny. Almost want to sound like limerick. Awesome stuff mate 😂😂
💙 Thanks, Nigel 💙
Yeah – I have to say that playing with various poetic forms is a blast for me! They all lend themselves to different messages and meanings… it’s quite amazing!
love these Clerihew!!! made me chuckle!

Thank you – I am so glad to know that!
I liked these particularly Clerihew..! the 4th one😂
Thanks so much 😍
Your political insight (or is it incite) is spot on! I enjoyed the clerihew but like the limerick, I’d much rather read than write!!
definitely incite 😈
of the many voices you present, David, this one stands out – but it’s not the only one. 🙂
which one? the Clerihew in general?
mmh – I’d say what you do with it? 🙂
your voice isn’t the form, but certain forms seem to bring out aspects of ‘your voice’ I can best relate to, if that makes sense.
