Subcontinental clerihews

My middle school students have been studying India. I was inspired to scribble the following:

Mohandas K. Gandhi
Was so fond of candy
That while eating and sex for his soul’s sake he sometimes would stop
He’d quake at the sight of a cherry gumdrop.

Mohammad Ali Jinnah
When invited to dinner
Would sit smoking under the gable
Then ask for a separate table.
