Tough English Vocabulary

I absolutely love this rhyme

It's easy: should and would and could
all rhyme with stood and wood and good,
But then we find another —
mould which rhymes instead with bold and gold.

Thought, bought, and fought all rhyme with sort,
but so do caught and taught (and taut).
Light, might, night, sight, tight', height,
but wait for neigh and sleigh and eight and weight.
Though, bough and cough are not enough,
there's also dough and rough and tough.
I haven't even mentioned 'through',or 'ought* and 'brought'
because I threw my pencil at the teacher's head and with a naughty laugh I fled!
