One day when Mother Hubbard was at home
She tried to feed her big dog a bone

Daffy Duck has tried to stop him, not having any luck

If you're wondering what a Clerihew is, it's a four line poem style that was invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. To read more about it and Edmund you can find it on Wikipedia
