Clerihew for Miss Rumphius

Now that SnapFiction is gone, I rely on Miss Rumphius to give me a weekly challenge. I don’t always rise to the challenge, but this week’s poetry form, the Clerihew, is exactly my kind of doggerel…
Tycho Brahe studied space,
but his was not a happy face.
Even a genius may have foes
and one of those cut off Tycho’s nose.
