E.C. Bentley: Clerihews



Sir Humphry Davy
Abominated gravy.
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium.

+

Sir Christopher Wren
Said, "I am going to dine with some men.
If anyone calls
Say I am designing St. Paul's."

+

George the Third
Ought never to have occurred.
One can only wonder
At so grotesque a blunder.

+

John Stuart Mill,
By a mighty effort of will,
Overcame his natural bonhomie
And wrote Principles of Political Economy

~Edmund Clerihew Bentley
