* One of the plays of Jára Cimrman Theatre in Prague contains a poem that is ALL this, containing "rhymes" like "Our old clock beats four o'clock". Jára Cimrman apparently believed that a rhyme must repeat the whole word in order to be considered perfect. The actors mention (with a straight face, as always) that it's still not a perfect solution, since the perfection of the rhyme is at the cost of "certain diminishment of the meaning".

* [[Film/{{Arthur}} "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)"]] rhymes "time" with itself in two consecutive lines: "Living his life one day at a time/He's showing himself a really good time". It's easy to miss this because there's no real pause between the lines and for that matter the next one, which isn't meant to rhyme.

* An interesting French-language example from CelineDion's 1987 song "La Religieuse" (''The Nun''): one verse rhymes with itself ''twice'', but in both cases does not rhyme a word with itself, but rather rhymes a short word with a longer word that includes it. It rhymes "mur" (wall) with "murmurent" (murmur, the "ent" is silent) and "vie" (life) with "envie" (desire).

* Dante Alighieri did this intentionally in the Divine Comedy. To prevent any sense of blasphemy, he only rhymed the word "Christ" with "Christ."[[note]]And mind you, it's much easier to find words that rhyme with "Christ" (well, "''Cristo''") in Italian than it is in English.[[/note]] Notable in that he had to do it three times do to the rhyming system of the Comedy (ABA CAC).
