Lillian, I took up your challenge for a Rumpelstiltskin Clerihew!

You’re a cad, Rumpelstiltskin
though you offer your services to spin,
and a young girl trusts that you’re good
karma caught up with you just as it should!

Try your hand at a new form called the Clerihew over at dVerse Poets!

  14. LOL so it did, caught up with him for sure! A great prompt, though I think fictional characters make more interesting Clerihews than real people. Oops did I say that? 😮
