What made Samson
So handsome
Was his long and flowing head of hair:
Until, one day … it wasn’t there!

Written in response to Anthony McGowan’s much wittier Samson quatrain: and recorded here not so much for its own merits (which are meagre) but because I like the name ‘Samson Clerihew’ and may appropriate it for a character in one of my novels.
