Words Which Have Never Shared a Line Before

I think that I can safely say                      
That spanner, quack and Mandalay
Have yet to share a line of verse,
(Along with jam-tart, laugh and hearse).
Like kitten, fear, hooray and brother,
Some words just avoid each other.
It breaks poetic etiquette
For radiator, sky, baguette,
Banana, gun, sarong and whine
To share the same poetic line.
How odd: these words which were estranged,
Have thus, forever, been arranged.
