The clerihew consists of two non-metrical couplets. The lines can be of uneven length, usually short, although the fourth line is often longer than the others. Clerihews are biographical, with the name of the subject often ending the first line. The form was invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley (hence the name), with some help from G.K. Chesterton.
