Queen of Pop Beats The King (Poetry Form Twenty Two: Clerihew)

2

April 3, 2012 by Sez

This is a Clerihew: A poem about an individual, usually famous person, using that person’s name in the rhyme scheme.
Named after its inventor, Edmund Clerihew Bentley.
I wrote this about the first random bit of celebrity news I found.

That tireless force of nature called Madonna
Has bagged herself another music honour:
She’s had more albums reach the top than Elvis –
The King is Dead: Long Live The Reigning Pelvis!
