Toby Speed: Three Clerihews For Children

( Who Don’t Have Time to Read)

Max
stopped wild things in their tracks
and gained the upper
hand followed by supper.

The Cheshire Cat
had a grin that
degraded
after the rest of him faded.

Mary Poppins
practiced parasol drop-ins,
loathe to stuff her carpet bag
in the overhead rack or suffer jet lag.
