Orange (Mission: Preposterous)
Can there be anything that’s more ing-
enious than to rhyme with orange?
Or have you heard aught more absurd
than rhyming an unmated word?
Just this: that even realists
can turn into idealists
when once they think they have attached
a mate to words that seemed unmatched.
So if you’d make your rhymes more orangey,
just sip a wee dram of Glenmorangie;
you might learn words to score in Scrabble on,
or, at the least, be led to Babylon (*),
but certainly, however foreign,
just know that all rhymes lead to Orange.
made me think of this… ha ha ha 🙂
Ha ha ha, indeed! I’d missed that particular interview, but I’ve always gotten a kick out of the perpetual insistence that Orange ruled all of the un-rhyme-able words, too. Didn’t know I was in cahoots with Eminem on that one!! Thanks for the good laugh. 😀
Or, if not brilliant, at least blindingly orangey. 😀
Leonard Cohen was the person who said orange had no rhymes!
I’ve been known to say a thing or two about Leonard Cohen, too, but I’ll refrain, if only on the strength of his Hallelujah. 😉
