THE WISE LAW LIBRARY'S
LAW-THEMED CLERIHEW CONTEST
What the heck is a Clerihew?
A clerihew is a 4-line biographical poem in rhymed couplets, AABB. The first line should be, or end with, the subject's name. Lines can be any length, and it is vital to remember that clerihews, like limericks, are supposed to be bad.
For our law-themed contest, the subject should be a legal professional (lawyer, judge, professor, ...), a defendant, a case, or even a legal subject, like Torts.
Clerihew examples :
Byron "Whizzer" White
Liked his arguments airtight,
But he failed to persuade
In the matter of Roe versus Wade.
His father wrote poems,
But he, like one awake before dawn, foresaw
The rise of the Common Law.
