Darth Vader is scary of course

But can he fight a lion with The Force?

Maybe he’d do the lion a favour

And help make dinner with his light sabre


I was honoured to be the featured participant on NaPoWriMo today for my London Ghazal. 🙂 

Today’s prompt: Because it’s Friday, let’s keep it light and silly today, with a clerihew. This is a four line poem biographical poem that satirizes a famous person. 

My 5yo son helped me write this one, he’s really getting into rhymes lately!  



  1. Hi Claire,
    I am pleased the organisers gave you a gong for the London Ghazal. I too thought it was one of your best. Such an interesting verse form as well.
    And congratulations to Percy for his help with Darth Vader.
