Greatest creature God create -
Teacher, please enunciate.
Show how sounds should auscultate
Make my head to oscillate
Heat up versions in your verse
Words like corpse, corps, horse, hoarse, hearse
Tear in eye, tear dress and worse
Tersely parse, or pierce your purse.
History of a billet-doux -
Still a mystery to me, Sue
Why a busy quasi-poet
On excuse like me do dote
It's enough, you found in jiff
I'm not into petroglyphs,
Aural fore-play that you wrote
Oar or ore, rose, rows my boat.
Fair seer, swear, I fear compare
Health, heard, here’s my heartfelt prayer,
Sword and Britain, sweaty mitt
Seems so foreign, how it's writ
'Bidded' better said then 'bade'?
Play-played, bad, pay-paid, laid plaid.
I'll be careful how I speak,
Like: brush, bush, steak, streak, break, bleak.
Bullet matches not ballet,
Wallet, mallet (for croquet).
Blood and wood are not good food
Nor is mould like cowed or mooed.
Diet, dies, alive, grieve, live
Wounded, rounded, ivy, sieve
Privy, famous, clamor, damn!
Rhymes with claim, enamor, clam
Allow hallowed, said aloud
People, leopard, towed, plowed, proud
Fetal, channel and banal
Promise and surprise canal
Monkey, donkey, shirk and jerk
Ask, grasp, wasp and cork and work
Doctrine, asinine, pristine
Mouth, youth, southern, cleanse lens clean
One, won, only, onion, owe
Two, canoe, too often throw
Four, fork, forty, flour, folk
Eight, weight, wait, faint, feint, weird, woke
No one, none, knot, nothing, love
Some, sum, shore, shone, seldom, shove
Many mania meant amends
Few refined fiends find true friends.
Brother, older, bother both
Sister, cistern, system, oath
Father, fatter, falter, fault
Mother, macho, mutter, malt
Daughter, laughter, draft and drought
Son, soup, shoulder, shouldn't shout
Niece and nephew, office, police
Lice, delicious, peace, release.
Winter, women, whine and dyne
Spring, sigh, singer, ginger, sign
Summer, comer, hymn and thyme
Autumn, fallow, climate, climb
Whether, weather, ware and tare
Front, from, font, and fowl or fare
Mown, grown, sod in Heaven – odd!
Even I am over-awed.
Limbo guys like Gene and John
Dance all night with Jean and Dawn
Just like movies that you've seen
Guests lean back, view groovy scene
Choose loose clothes to cruise the show
Limbo, how low you can go?
Limber ladies – limbs can seize
Please don't freeze and squeeze your knees.
Accent hard to get correct
As in current or connect
Segment, portrait they portray
Moray, banquet and filet
Insight, inquest and intent
Recent recipe, cement
Exit or exist, exude
Concert, conquest and conclude.
