Inspired by Flight of the Conchords use of the word ‘profiteroles’ on a recent trailer, what’s your favourite shoehorn of a rhyme? I speak here as someone who once rhymed ‘Adolesence’ with ‘phosphoresence’.

“As they're turning hard-a-port in the Bahamas
He's turning her right out of her pyjamas”

Richard Thompson.

"Had a love affair with Nina
In the back of my Cortina
A seasoned up hyena
Could not have been more obscener
She took me to the cleaners
And other misdemeanours
But I got right up between her
Rum and her Ribena"

Beautiful poetry from the pen of Mr Dury, as I'm sure we can all agree.

My children loved Horrible Histories, as did I.

My favourite rhyming couplet in the English language comes from their Richard III song -

Can you imagine it?
I'm the last Plantagenet


or there is always Marc Bolan's

I have never ever kissed a car before
It's like a do-oh-oh-oh-or

I've always liked:

"Pottifer had very few cares,
 He was one of Egypt's millionaires,
 Having made a fortune buying shares
 ...in pyramids"

From the pen of Tim Rice, I believe, Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.

Isn't it nice
Sugar and spice
Luring disco dollies
To a life of vice..

We used to be in love,
Now we are in hate,
You used to say I came too early,
But it was you who came too late

Have you ever heard a digital accordion? By The Lovely Eggs from their first album If You Were Fruit

Well if you've never travelled time in a DeLorean
Or eaten beef bourguignon
Or fought a deadly scorpion
Or read some Richard Brautigan
Or heard a digital accordion
Then I am fairly sure you'll burn in hell

A beautiful song Drunk and Fed by the much missedSinging Loins about assisted suicide from their album …Here On Earth

Tuck me up in bed
Make sure I’m drunk and fed
kiss me goodnight
when I close my eyes
take a hammer to my head

and finally Tweed Jacket by the wonderful Leeds group Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers from their album Dinosaurs Ate My Caravan

Tweed jacket, I only want to wear you.
Tweed jacket, I hope I never tear you.
You’re wonderful and made out of wool,
Tweed jacket.
If I were to wear you with a pink shirt,
Then I could pretend to be an antiques expert.
We’d stand with Tim at the front on Bargain Hunt.
Tweed jacket.

Meself and herself were in a shop at the weekend and we saw this book of poetry "One for every evening of the year" it said on the front.

Herself opened it up and lo and behold there was a John Cooper Clarke poem, my favourite one of his at that.

You ain't nothing but a hedgehog
Foragin' all the time
You ain't nothing but a hedgehog
Foragin' all the time
You ain't never pricked a predator
You ain't no Porcupine
