Rimes with Orange

If anyone knows any words that rime with pint, I would appreciate it if you would share them with me. I guess dreamt has kempt, and unkempt for that matter, but all of the alphabetical partners of pint, hint, tint, lint, splint, mint, and the like, don't rime with pint. Do you think it would be fair for poets to pretend that words that rime with nothing else rime with eachother? "Roses are red, Sunsets are orange, You'd make me glad, please share a pint"? Much better than "Roses are red, Violets are blue, You'd make me glad, lets sniff some glue."
On another note, French has beautiful words that mean horrible things. Two examples: abattoir and oubliette. Abattoir means slaughterhouse, and oubliette is a small dungeon with a little opening in the top of the ceiling. Abattoir is more literally a place where things are "beaten." And oubliette comes from the French oublier meaning to forget. So you put someone there to forget them. That is all for now.

There once was a man of St. Bee's
Who got stung on the arm by a wasp
When they asked, "Does it hurt?"
He replied, "No, it doesn't,
But all the while I thought 'twas a hornet!"
