Fred Dagg satire – NaPoWriMo 2017 – Day fourteen – prompt: clerihew

Me as Fred Dagg (2) 001

Me acting the part of Fred Dagg at a club in the ’80’s (please note the top of m’ gumboots)

John Morrison Clarke, aka Fred Dag,

aka anyone he wanted to parody and bag.

We all applauded his song and his actions,

but we wonder if he died with his gumboots on.

.

Dame Valarie Adams,

I’ve never seen her in denims.

An amazing, many times shot put champion;

a woman of strength and fine ambiance

. 

Marilyn Munroe,

married to a DiMaggio called Joe.

She was a sex symbol, an icon;

and she jibbed at portraying dumb blondes.

Sadly John Clarke died in Australia last week. He was born in NZ. and much loved in both countries. In the photo above I had at my side a live lamb who bleated and pissed the whole time I was on the mike.

Last but not least, our prompt! Because it’s Friday, let’s keep it light and silly today, with a clerihew. This is a four line poem biographical poem that satirizes a famous person.
