Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés - Nose

Bouts Rimés means "rhymed ends" in French and is a game or challenge where one person (me) makes a list of rhymed words and others (you) write the lines that end with those rhymes, in the same order in which they were given. It was known as Crambo in English and was quite popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Will you help me bring back this hip historical habit?
 
 
Nose
Grows
Sniff
Whiff
Eye
Spy
Look
Shook
 
 
Above are the words.
Get writing rhyme nerds!
There will be no winner. This is just for fun
and the joy of rhyming a smile for everyone.

  1. Would you want a wooden nose?
    Tell a lie, and then it grows.

    Fresh baked cookies, you take a sniff.
    Rewarded with a stale & wooden whiff.

    To see you use a painted eye,
    then ditch that annoying cricket spy.

    Inside a whale you take a look.
    Dance and sing as the wires are shook.

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
