Many poems follow some sort of rhyme scheme--AABBA, ABAB etc. This is generally an end rhyme; the rhyming words come at the end of each successive line. Generally the rhyme ends up even, and each line is a complete phrase, if not a complete sentence.

And then... there are these.

If you write out the poem or lyrics in lines, they ''will'' rhyme... so long as you cut words between two lines. [[SerialEscalation Or three, but that would get silly]].

Tends to overlap with a LeastRhymableWord, as a way of getting around it (without "chilver" or "doorhinge").

Please note that the word has to be ''completed'' for this to work. Otherwise it's an abbreviation, a CurseCutShort, or a SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion.

This is the extreme form of what is technically known as "enjambment," spreading a phrase or sentence over two lines instead of fitting each thought to its own line.

* The song "Marley and Marley" from ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' rhymes "greed" with "needy", "black" with "shackles", and in a cut verse, "part" with "heartless". Since this happens once a verse, it was probably done for artistic purposes.

* "Follow Your Arrow" by Music/KaceyMusgraves combines this with a LastSecondWordSwap:
