[what is this?]

Raymond Allen Weinstein, born in New York City, was an IM (1961) who had a very short chess career. He was US Junior Champion in 1958, 3rd in the US 1960-61 Championship and played on board six for the 1960 US Olympiad team at Leipzig. His last tournament was the 1963-64 US Championship, where he finished 7th.

Weinstein graduated from Brooklyn College in 1963 with a degree in psychology. It was around this time that he began to manifest symptoms of mental illness, described by some as schizophrenia. In 1964 he killed an elderly roommate after an argument, and since then he has been confined in mental institutions.

Oct-07-11  Shams: Hmm, it seems there are further stylistic constraints:


<The number of accents in [each] line is irregular, and one line is usually extended to tease the ear. Another requisite of the successful clerihew is [at least one] awkward rhyme . . . The humour of the form lies in its purposefully flat-footed inadequacy: in addition to clumsy rhythm and rhyme, the verse’s treatment of the subject is either off the mark or totally beside the point, as though it were the work of a reluctant schoolchild.>

"Reluctant schoolchild," eh? I foresee wild success among this crowd.

Oct-07-11  Shams: A couple nice ones from Auden:

<No one could ever inveigle
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Into offering the slightest apology
For his Phenomenology.>


Had too much to say:
He could never quite
Leave the paper white.>

and one final by Louis Untermeyer:

<Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Lived upon venison;
Not cheap, I fear,
Because venison's deer.>

  tpstar: The Tragedy of Wesley So
His own fans made him go
Called him "kid" and harped on his rating too
The Barangay Wesley sacrificed their favorite unique precious carabou

Maybe with some practice we'll work up to that.
