Rhyme As Reason Effect

The "rhyme as reason" effect is the feeling or belief that a wise saying, or an aphorism, is more genuine or relevant (or at least easier to remember) if rendered in rhyme. For instance, to teach children to remember to walk only on a green light you say "Walk on the green, not in between." Another useful rhyme is "leaflets three, leave it be" for avoiding poison ivy.
