I like games of words, but not playing (perhaps because of inclination towards mental as well physical idleness). Rather, formulating, I'd like (in dreams). That's why CLERIHEW interests me. Here's what they've to say about The Hot Word:

"A CLERIHEW is a four-line poem that pokes fun at the famous. Invented by British writer Edmund Clerihew Bently (1875-1956), these mini-verses have three rules: They rhyme aabb, they're about a celebrity named in the first line, and as for the meter? There are no rules! Here's an example:

Actor Harrison Ford
Was feeling extraordinarily bored.
So he grabbed his hat and picked up his bones
And starred in yet another Indiana Jones."

(Quoted from Reader's Digest, Asia, Oct 2008, Pg # 28)
Make up your own Clerihew poem and send it to If they like it, they just might run it for the magazine. And, don't forget to share with us!
