Writing Prompt: Surprising Rhymes

Writing prompt Currently one of my favorite song writers is a man named Andrew Peterson, who has a penchant for putting rhymes in surprising places. On his most recent album, he has this line: "I want to say I'm sorry that I drew the line/I built the wall, the fault is mine." It's easy to see the line/mine rhyme, but when you listen to it, you realize that "wall" and "fault" have a strong slant-rhyme function.

Write a poem which includes rhymes or slant rhymes in unexpected places (within lines, instead of just at the end).
