Rhyming Challenge

Some years ago, someone challenged me to write a verse that rhymed with orange – a word considered unrhymable. My response was:

This obsession with fruit is quite rare
And you’re taking the pith – that’s unfair
In exchange for a florin, jus’
Give us yer oranges
Then I might show you my pear

Note: Florin was a pre-decimal coin worth 10p in today’s money

I thought it might be fun to set a regular challenge for like-minded readers. You are equally more than welcome to challenge me with any English word or name you like. I cannot resist a word challenge!

So my first challenge for you is: write a verse that rhymes the word “silver”
