In Honor of E.C. Bentley's Birthday
Today is the birthday of Edmund Clerihew Bentley (July 10, 1875), who befriended G. K. Chesterton while they were in school, and who invented the verse form that bears his name, the clerihew. (Chesterton illustrated a number of Bentley's clerihews.)
Here's a clerihew in his honor:
E. C. Bentley
knew just what to do
with a clerihew.
Pax et bonum
