Walking across Waterloo bridge this morning I was enumerating to myself those buildings that I could identify. Chief amongst them being, of course, St Paul's Cathedral where Mary and I got married.
Into my head popped a piece of trivia I inherited from my father, also an architect: a Clerihew about the architect of that fine building:
Sir Christopher Wren
Said "I am going to dine with some men.
"If anybody calls,
Say I am designing St Paul's."
The unbalanced and unpolished poetic meter and line length parody the limerick, which in turn reminded me of:
There was a young man of Japan
Whose verses never would scan.
When they said, "But the thing
Doesn't go with a swing,
He replied, "No, but I try to get as many words into the last line as I possibly can!"
