Today is Clerihew Day! A clerihew is a four-line poem structure created by Edmund Clerihew. Ed wrote quite a few that I can find online, but one that keeps surfacing is this:

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

They are usually if not always written in first person view, and are intended to be quick, quirky quips from the person's thoughts about things from mundane activities to famous people of the times. Mostly the latter, though.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to read plenty more if Ed's writings.

Thanks for reading!
