Fairy Tale Clerihew

THERE…YOU GO!!!!! :0)

Friendly Fairy Tales

Shadows of Grass

The First of the Three Little Pigs
Distained using twigs
And instead built from straw,
How his brothers laughed when they saw.

Inspired by Paint the World with Words weekly poetry prompt, a Clerihew, which is a 4-line rhyming poem, aabb, generally about a famous person introduced in the first line. Here are two famous Clerihew by the originator of the form, Edmund Clerihew Bentley:

Said Sir Christopher Wren
 I`m having lunch with some men,
If anyone calls,
Say I`m designing St Paul`s.

The digestion of Milton
Was unequal to Stilton.
He was only feeling so-so,
When he wrote Il Penseroso.
