Composer Clerihews

Erik Satie
Would get rather ratty
With the common belief
That his works were too brief.

Franz Liszt
Played the piano when piszt.
It was only when plasztered
That his minims were masztered.

Arvo Pärt’s
Not top of the chärts;
He’ll never advänce
With those minimal chänts.

  1. Gustav Mahler’s
    Works are unsuitable for galas.
    Though Symphony number 8
    Might go down well at a fete.

    Hector Berlioz
    As a clerihew subject is otiose
    I’ve wasted far too much time
    Looking up words that will rhyme.

    Phillip Glass
    Is not a pain in the arse

    Is not a pain in the arse
    Phillip Glass
    Is not a pain in the arse
    ( the stylus is nudged)
    But where he goes wrong
    Is writing work that’s far too long.
