Today’s Rhyme Challenge: oblige

One of the more famous ones, this one.  The proper name Teige, which could be Irish, or Czech, seems to rhyme with “beige” or to sound like “tiger” without the “r”.  There’s also the noun ige, which I don’t expect to hear used any time soon.

It’s so like Jehovah,

This putting one over.

Trust Him to oblige a

Man like Elijah

To take up the prophecy trade.


That small voice, I’m thinking

Would set me to drinking.

I’d probably try gin,

A drink as obligin’

As any that man’s ever made.



As always, your efforts appreciated.
