362. YOU try rhyming her

There once was a hooker named Margaret,
Who set up shop down in Key Largaret.
The cops handling vice
Thought this wasn't too nice,
So she was a regular targaret.

  1. You're right. "Margaret" is a denizen of the menacing list of words for which finding a good rhyme is difficult. How about this alteration? Make your protagonist Margo (or Margaux [as in Hemingway] or Margeaux [as in Rawson] or Margeau), place her in Key Largo, and change line five to: "(So) They slapped on her trade an embargo" or "...too nice;/On her trade the fuzz slapped an embargo."
