Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
DeG: In any case, it wasn't a fluke, for Kipling did it elsewhere:

We broke a King and we built a road --
A court-house stands where the Reg'ment goed.
And the river's clean where the raw blood flowed
                When the Widow give the party.

Maybe Kipling knew something that you & I & the OED don't.
