Belloc of Batavia
imbibed a bottle of ratafia.
His subsequent hangover led him to snark,
"I place all the blame on Bishop Clark."

I do believe that's the first time I've ever inspired poetry.

I'm not sure whether I should be flattered or not!

Take it as an invitation to try a clerihew of your own!

Lee,

Afraid I'm not as poetically proficient as my namesake, but take a look at this: http://closedcafeteria.blogspot.com/2007/11/rochester.html

Unfortunately, I'm not alone in my perspective. Rochester is in my prayers.
