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
