Star Wars Clerihew

First off a little about clerihew:

A clerihew is a very specific kind of short biographical humorous verse.

A clerihew has the following properties:

* It is biographical and usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of view; it pokes fun at mostly famous people
* It has four lines of irregular length (for comic effect); the third and fourth lines are usually longer than the first two
* The rhyme structure is AABB; the subject matter and wording are often humorously contrived in order to achieve a rhyme
* The first line consists solely (or almost solely) of the subject's name.

Clerihews are not satirical or abusive, but they target famous individuals and reposition them in an absurd or commonplace setting, often giving them an over-simplified and slightly garbled description.


How to play:
1.) Create a clerihew about a Star Wars character of your choice.
2.) Stick to the clerihew properties shown above.
3.) Keep them clean!


Starting:

Darth Vader
the Jedi temple invader.
Did his master's bidding
and thus was his dark side ending.
