A Clerihew for Wednesday

ChristopherWrenClerihewThe clerihew is a short, four line (including title), poetic form invented by Mr. Edmund Clerihew Bentley to poke gentle fun at celebrities or famous historical figures. Unlike many forms, it is meant to be a bit awkward, anachronistic, and ideally, the rhyme is forced or also awkward.  A good poetry form for a Wednesday, I would say. Photograph and composition by me.
