Are plural form of a noun considered to be a weak verb?

Let's say you use "lions" and then use the same word in singular "lion", are these two considered to be weak rhymes or not at all? Is there any exception to the rule?

    Yeah, I don't think you mean verb. The plural form of a noun isn't any sort of verb. May 24 at 6:13

    I think your title is misleading. Nothing in your question points to a verb. If you mean weak rhyme, you might want to update your title. I think that "lion" and "lions" would make an internal rhyme, not so sure about a weak rhyme since the ending sound is different. Jun 21 at 18:38
  • I think I understand what you mean by weak verb...like a "what does a lion do? It lions" kind of thing? And then your question is: is using "a lion lions" a weaker choice than using a more specific verb like "a lion roars"?
