Poor Britney. As you remind, so many questions about this situation. This has to be a fun little play with form. I wonder how many you tried before this one came to you.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Cathy! Yes, I tried this Clerihew form with several celebrity name/personalities before settling on an icon who is in the news right now. For Gwyneth Paltrow I was toying with rhyming Goop with poop... ;)

I haven't read much about it but wonder sometimes why these things are in the news at all? But, your clerihew does the item proud, only four lines needed!

Nailed it! I've been catching up on my Wee Words reading today... can you tell?

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! The fascination with celebrity is an interesting phenomenon. :)
