Rhyme It Sam!

roll:
To apply
Adjacent spots
On the surface
Of a thing
To the ground
In rapid succession,
With progress your goal,
You’ll be on a roll.

oats:
Horses and goats
Are partial to oats.
Scots and goats
Being equal,
In Scotland oats
Feed the people.

patron:
A wretch
Who supports
And protects
With insolence
My innocence
From penury,
Usury, injury,
Or battery
And is paid
With flattery.

pastern:
In a good
Western,
If you call
The pastern
A horse’s knee,
It’ll rankle
Because it’s
The ankle.
Ignorance, Madam,
Pure ignorance.

network:
Anything reticulated
Or decussated
Equidistant,
With interstices
Existent
At the intersections,
Will network
Your connections.

lexicographer:
See him trudge,
The harmless drudge
Who busies himself
To trace and record
The signification
Of every word.
His reason to be:
Lexicography.
