Day 14 – Clerihew

Gordon Shumway

Want to cook a cat someday

His flight to his planet went south

Crashed on Earth and, now, he’s known as ALF

George Foreman

Is a boxing champion

But he retired and change fields

Now, He is the king of indoor grills

Bruce Lee

Made martial arts, style free

Racism in movies was large

But he change it and became a superstar.
