Gladdens Hewers of Cleries Everywhere

Could Danny Finkelstein
Be more pleased than Clerihewers he met a Dinkeldein?
Unless Jon were instead a Manny,
It couldn't have been more uncanny.

Nowhere does it require in Erskine May
The PM answer every Q with "Can I say..."

Hardened Art Series

Don't go feeling sorry for Katie Hopkins;
She's not yet having to root through the bins.
And if she can't face the Schadenfreude,
She shouldn't be such a Scheißschleuder.

Metronomically Mephistophelian

Modest Mussorgsky.
No shrinking violet he.
Pitchers at an exhibition match, he aimed to please;
Scratchers appreciated his musical fleas.

With a Lemon, Make Lemonade

McArthur Wheeler's
Not one of the Pittsburgh Wheeler-Dealers.
The career of this bank-robbing thug
Turned as sour as his lemon-soaked mug.

Glastonburied

Athelstan Joseph Michael Eavis.
He conceived this:
'A fallow season,' he blurts,
'Gives next year a better crop of yurts.'

Applaud Quietly

Mr Ivor Cutler
Sourced his jungle tips from a sutler;
Wrote deadpan verse without rhyme or raisin,
And awkward soft Glaswegian phrasing.
