* ''Fanfic/TheLastSon'': [[ComicBook/XMen Irene Adler's]] prophecy regarding [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Superman's]] fate reads as follows:
--> "All of you now, from near and from far, mark well the Child that comes from the Star! Great power he has, which no man can match, the dark he will fight, and swiftly dispatch. Death will fall from the sky, with unquenchable fire, but the Child will strive on, and shall never tire. Monsters shall rise, in a world full of hate, yet the Child will bring light, to challenge this fate. Another will come, with might equal to he, but he will still win, in ways we can't see. And all around him, mutantkind shall unite, to drive back the dark, in a terrible fight. And hope shall be gone, as victory seems far, but hope shall return, with the Child of the Star."

*Lampshaded to hellangone in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. Right from the start the four encounter a poem carved in a wall. John immediately sneers at how bad it is, and complains that if it's meant for them, he does ''not'' want to be communicated to that way. They soon run into more poems and lines of poetry, all bad (“Hooray, more shitty poetry!” John cries at one point). When they find out that the gods wrote some of this stuff, John sniffs, “Well, now we know they ain't the gods of poetry.”)

* Parodied by Portentia the oracle in ''Literature/TheSecretsOfDroon''. She'd ''like'' to give her prophecies as rhyming riddles, but she's not very good at it. From her second appearance onward, her presentation gets much better.

* Early in ''Literature/IClaudius'', we see two Sibylline prophecies that hint of Claudius's rule. Both prophecies rhyme, though that wasn't a typical feature of Greek or Latin poetry (or prophecy). Arguably it's TranslationConvention, translating Greek verse (which was based on patterns of long and short syllables) into an equivalent English poetic form (based on stressed syllables and rhyme).

->''"Most of the prophets of the past millennium were more concerned with scansion than accuracy. You know, '[[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe And thee Worlde Unto An Ende Shall Come, in tumpty-tumpty-tumpty One.]]' Or Two, or Three, or whatever. There aren't many good rhymes for Six, so it's probably a good year to be in."''
