Those who read QT's column have seen how we met the challenge to rhyme "poetry":


To find a rhyme for "silver" or for any rhymless rhyme,

One needs to have the WILL, VERbosity, conceit and time

(Or so said Stephen Sondheim, though I've modified a bit,

To change the meter, changing the idea not a whit.)

But finding rhyme for "poetry" (another rhymeless rhyme)

Proved quite a task. You KNOW IT REally occupied my time.
