Time for more instances of the homophone: a word pronounced the same as another but differing in meaning, whether spelled the same way or not, as heir and air.
1. holey (adj.): having holes
2. holy (adj.): connected to a god or religion; religious and morally good
3. wholly (adv.): completely; entirely
Dwight’s holey hovel near the Rhine
Was not a spot you’d call a shrine.
But it was holy to that dude
Who lived therein (so plain, so rude).
So he was wholly satisfied
And so he stayed until he died,
When it became a tourist site—
And, yes, a shrine for poor old Dwight.
For people loved Dwight’s simple ways—
Admired the way he’d lived his days.
Just reading, staring at the Rhine—
A life so plain, so modest, fine.
In fact his fans would do him right:
They formed the famous Cult of Dwight.
