some rhyme, no reason

We say OVER and CLOVER,

But COVER and LOVER,

Add an ‘r’ to BOTHER,

And its sound becomes BROTHER!

 

This may sound rather petty,

But PRETTY rhymes with PITY?!

And WORD rhymes with WHIRRED,

Isn’t that absurd?

 

We say BLOOD as in FLOOD,

But then BROOD as in FOOD,

It’s no wonder our language,

Leaves people somewhat confused!
