I just looked at the list of cliches. My writing group has had a lot of fun trying to use cliches in new ways. What I'm asking about here, is about 'fair dinkum'. Since I live 'up over', I rarely come across this expression. Looked it up. OK, good. But what rhymes with 'fair dinkum'? ' Lair stinkum'? like in a funky cave? The critters leave old bones and such around? They practice poor hygiene?
Or would it be a pub crawling challenge? 'dare drink 'em'. I'd like to see this cliche in a poem.
