Emily Dickinson once rhymed “scourge” with “judge” — but (a) I’m sure she knew the correct pronunciation of “scourge,” and (b) she knew what she was doing. Most certainly, Dickinson had an appreciation and a command of the language. She was a songbird with beautiful and haunting melodies and inventive harmonies. Trump — who can barely read — is a toad. He can merely croak.

Jim: You're the Dickinson expert, but I seem to recall that she used slant rhymes quite a lot.
