The Learning Wasteland

Teacher Mrs. Jenny Johnson
Whose talent commandeered education into a recession
Like a drought in a fertile valley, she sucked the life out of learning
Leaving the inquiring minds of all her students yearning.


Clerihew:   A Clerihew is a comic verse consisting of two couplets and a specific rhyming scheme, aabb invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956) at the age of 16. The poem is about/deals with a person/character within the first rhyme. In most cases, the first line names a person, and the second line ends with something that rhymes with the name of the person. One of the most remembered Clerihew from Bentley’s collection is: Sir Humphrey Davy Abominated gravy. He lived in the odium Of having discovered sodium.
I guess I forgot the humor and instead needed to get something off my chest.  Per haps I should call this and Anti-Clerihew.
