April 10th, 2013 Poetry form = Clerihew

Do you have a green thumb?
Clerihew:  It is biographical and usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of view; but it is hardly ever satirical, abusive or obscene; It has four lines of irregular length (for comic effect), rhymed as two couplets; The first line consists solely (or almost solely) of a well-known person's name.

Cheryl Marois
Once tried to grow roses
To please other peoples noses
Now the roses all sing in heavens chorus

It's true, I love to grow things but things don't like to grow for me. Unless it is an ivy or a catus which can grow with minimal help it will die on me.
