Bugs Bunny and Mother Hubbard

One day when Mother Hubbard was at home
She tried to feed her big dog a bone
The dog had already helped himself, and gobbled
The two I hear had quite the squabble




Bugs Bunny is a silly wabbit
Stealing from gardens, all the carrots
Daffy Duck has tried to stop him, not having any luck
Look out farmers,  Bugs Bunny is running a muck 




I had so much fun writing my first "Clerihew" poem about Richard Nixon that I had to write a few more.

If you're wondering what a Clerihew is, it's a four line poem style that was invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. To read more about it and Edmund you can find it on Wikipedia
