    “Poet” and “know it” rhyme, but I think not “hankerin’” and “pen” (or “ink pen”).

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Some poems rhyme
    And some poems don’t.

    I think Earl’s starting from scratch here.

    There was a young man from Wyatt,
    Who’s voice was exceedingly quiet.
    They say one day,
    It faded away…

    It rhymes about as well as most cowboy poetry.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    In Soviet Russia
    Poem writes you

    The Gnoble Shovel

    The shovel has more than one role.

    One is to remove dirt from a hole.

    Another is to remove leavings from a stall.

    Yet another is to protect troops with an earthen wall.

    It’s reversible: it can fill things in.

    It can be used for holes to throw bad poetry in.

    Don’t look to me for an answer. I once wrote a song lyric that rhymed “fading” with “remaining”, and in the next verse “center” with “mental”.

    You could have rhymed “central” with “mental” … unless you wanted to be centremental.

    Home, home on the range
    Where I’m feeling the pain even more.
    Where the pan and the pot
    Are becoming quite hot
    And my backside is blistered and sore.

    In some parts of the southwest, when they say pen it sounds more like pin to outsiders.
    So if someone from there asks to borrah a pin, don’t be giving them a hat pin, thumb tack, push pin or drawing pin, unless you want to be laughed at.

    When his wife sees the back of that shirt (image it has ink all over it now) he may be home on the range.
