SNGF - Show Us Your Clerihew

The latest Saturday Night Fun from Randy at GeneaMusings:

1) Write a Genealogy Clerihew (and what is a "clerihew" you ask? See Jim Smith's post today for more details and his clerihew (briefly, a clerihew is a four-line irregular poem or verse that follows an AABB rhyme scheme. It is named for the birthday of Edmund Clerihew Bentley the inventor, aka writer, aka poet."). If you're feeling especially creative, write two or more!

2) Show us your genealogy clerihew in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook comment or update. C'mon, dazzle your readers and friends with your poetry and creativeness.

So... I'm not sure I can even come to close to the wit already exhibited by others, but here's my version!

Gazing back on Cyndi Henry’s ancestral chart
It’s apparent she gave it a lot of heart
But one thing she will never see
Is a completion of that family tree

Okay, so a poet I ain't! But it was still alot of fun!!!

Thanks Randy for another interesting Saturday evening!
