Rhyming triplets

tropical-frog.jpgWrite three lines that rhyme and have a similar rhythm for the following words:
remains
curse
frogs
ghoul
crunch
eye
A poem of 3 rhyming lines is a tercet ("TER sit" or "ter SET") or triplet. Like the poem by Joan Bransfield Graham:

Kitchen crickets make a din,
sending taunts to chilly kin,
"You're outside, but we got in."

If you look over the rhymes at Rhymer or Rhymezone, you might find some interesting combinations (curse, nurse, purse? remains, brains, chains?) to spark your muse :-)
