Allow me to introduce the Clerihew. The cleriwhat???? Salud. This is a simple rhyme, apparently invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The form is as follows:
Line 1: a – name of a person (typically)
Line 2: a – something that rhymes with name of the person in Line
Line 3: b – action, description or circumstance
Line 4: b – action, description or circumstance
Truth to tell, lines 3 and 4 can be whatever you like. It is lines 1 and 2 that are typically the name of a person and something that rhymes with the person’s name.
Now this sounds like my sort of poem! FUN!!!!
A Clerihew for Cubby!

I’ll send you tons of dark chocolate
Instead of a silly nifty compliment!
