Default Rhyming Couplets

A little form popular in the German language, often crafted to express cautionary folk-wisdom, these nuggets have the advantage of sticking in the head like an mnemonic--an underrated propaganda device if there ever was one.

Here's an olde saw in German that doesn't really need translation:

Jedem Mark in Judenhand,
gestohlen ist vom Vaterland.

I'd like to come up with some in English...
