Pseudorhyme Poetry

Class Pseudorhyme extends Poetry
  [vote for,

Pseudorhyme Poetry is constructed in order that the poem rhymes only based on spelling, but doesn't in fact rhyme when pronounced correctly.

Yesterday, I went through
All the hay in the trough
And climbed upon a bough
And helped to make dough

In Pseudorhyme poetry, that is a stanza where all the lines rhyme, but when spoken, it shouldn't sound fine.

       Oh. What a shame.

       I HATE pseudorhymes. When I see one, I purposely pronounce it wrong, in order to make it rhyme.
