Here is a short sweet 10 year old poem — more rhyme per buck with 4 lines, 6 rhyming words: hole, soul, black, crack, sky, I. And actually backed rhymes internally too.

Used Karma Lot

I cut the cockroach off at the watering hole
Sent his brown backed soul
To that great black crack in the sky
May God have more compassion than I

— Steven B. Smith, 2001
