A limerick, courtesy of yours truly:

There once was a bloke named Gorringe
Who hailed from a village near Blorenge.
He tried to find rhymes
At various times
And said "I can even rhyme 'orange'!"

Well then. You win this round. But there are many unrhymable words still lurking out there!

Probably not! Apparently there is the word "chilver", meaning "female lamb", rhyming with "silver"; as for "wolf", my sources list "pulf" and "yulf" as rhymes, but don't explain what these mean. ("PULF" appears to be an acronym, e.g. for an Indian political party; "Yulf" is apparently a rare surname.)

I recall writing a poem for Undertale, in which I wrote that nothing rhymes with 'different'. I'm not sure that's entirely incorrect.

"I say", he said, "now that is different:
my wife, today, is not vociferant!"

On that note: 23 Notoriously Unrhymable Words (That Actually Have Rhymes). Quite interesting!

Pray, was the ball we seek amongst
The balls that thou so freely flungst?
