Some Clerihews by J.B. Pick.

Roman History

Julius Caesar
Was a tempestuous sneezer;
"That's common," said Brutus
"Among Generals with enormous hooters."

Greek Philosophers 1.

Everyone agreed, even Plato,
That he strongly resembled a potato;
But he grew frantic and savage
When they likened him to a cabbage.

Greek Philosophers 2.

Took to the bottle
When they described his Nichomachaean Ethic
As simply pathetic.

Mr Apeck's Literary Lecture.

"Look sharp, see deep, and don't relent,
Use short words, say only what you know,
And when you've said - go."
So Apeck said - and went.
