Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
LH, the bit of "though its heart being chipped" that bugs me is not the rhyme, but using "being" (instead of "has been" or "was" -- or maybe even "it was", if having two syllables was imperative) with "though"; it just makes me wince. So give the man a dishonorable mention, by all means -- but not for the near-rhyme, which is not really that bad (though I'll concede it's not that good, either).
