Clerihews For Athaliah

King Hazael
Was simply vile.
He got everything he had
By murdering Ben-hadad.

The prophet Micaiah
Was a great soothsayer.
All of the others had a lying spirit.
But Ahab didn't want to hear it.

Was a yahoo.
What he did to those priests
Shouldn't happen to beasts.

King Ahaziah
Was certainly no messiah.
He fell through a lattice, splat!
He never recovered. And that is that.

Elijah the Tishbite
Knew where the fish bite.
He was taken to heaven by a chariot of fire
Or Second Kings 2 was written by a liar.
