Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
After a visit to Cambodia, I wrote possibly the most serious song I'd ever written in my life. One reviewer suggested that rhyming TB with HIV (two of the biggest scourges in the country apart from dengue fever)was belittling the whole thing, and somehow cheapening the severity of the situation. Far from the truth, both widely accepted medical terms. I was hardly going to try and rhyme tuberculosis with human immunodeficiency virus.
My latest song also contains initials: IED (improvised explosive device), which is what the guys out there fighting call them, and now the journalists too.
Supposedly anyhing with an ee sound in it as an easy rhyme.
