Meaning

Rhyme occuring within lines.

Nor does long our small
Durance deal with that steep or deep. Here! creep,
Wretch, under a comfort serves in a whirlwind…

-Gerard Manley Hopkins, “No worst, there is none”

Dead in the middle of Little Italy little did we know
That we riddled two middlemen who didn’t do diddly

-Big Punisher, “Twinz (Deep Cover ‘98)”
