Rhymes with Stuff

Rhymes with “Stuff”
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

Bluff is a cliff that above land is laid.
Bluffs are charades to win card games played.
Buff is a tint between white and brown.
Buff shines stuff; rub a soft-cloth around.

Duff with raisins is a pudding that's stiff.
Huffing and puffing might cause moods’ shift.
Fluff is stuff that flies when pillow splits.
Fluff is spare language, added tidbits.

Cuff is hitting or playing too rough.
Instant speech is “talking off the cuff.”
Gruff are the words folks say to sound tough.
Guff is gobbledegook's made up stuff. 

Muffs warming fingers used to be hip.
Now a day people don't give a flip.
Scuffs are boo-boos found on feet that slip.
Snuff is brown stuff not found in kid's lips. 

Buff, cuff, duff, huff, fluff, gruff, bluff and muff
Puff, guff, scuff, scruff, all rhyming with stuff,
Some have two meanings, others one.
That's enough rough tough rhyming word fun!

Dedicated to Hunter G. Jackson, a kindergarten student who loves to rhymes words.
