Some Broadway Clerihews

Frank Loesser
Was unable to repress a
Desire to mentor in later life.
A shame about the wife.

 

Lord Lloyd Webber,
A hack? Nay, nebber!
Near the start of Superstar
Is one very good bar.

 

Oscar Hammerstein II
Is forever under-reckoned.
But he revolutionised
Without becoming douchenised.

 

Wildhorn, Frank:
His melodies stank
Of Cheez Whiz and sherbet;
A less butch Victor Herbert.

 

And, last of all …

Thanks a lot, Steve,
For the legacy you leave.
We’ll escape it
By writing shit.
