Word Prompt for November 2021:

The rules for writing clerihews are few. They almost always begin with the name of the person who is the subject of
the poem, and often that is all there is to the first line. They consist of four lines set to an AABB rhyme format, and
their lines usually have irregular length and meter.

Bought sumptuous apparel 
And built an enormous palace 
Out of the profits of Alice.
