Ryhme* (for Rhyme*)

When cataloguing a rhyming book
Don’t forget to take a second look
Check your H and check your Y
In case they’ve swapped on the sly
For if you’ve let your fingers slip
A typo will hold you in its grip

To catch even more, truncate the word
For a second error and a third
Ryhm* will find you “Ryhming verse”
And “Ryhming stories” with letters reversed
Use an asterisk or other wild card
To search your database and keep on guard.
