Dog lover and South Korean President Moon Jae-in (above) has called on his country to reject their dog-meat-eating tradition

In Korea some folk like to eat
Man’s best friend as a tasty treat
But President Moon
Suggests that quite soon
They should stop eating this kind of meat

    North Korean peasants can eat rockets instead.
    Let them get that into their head:
    Traditional fried rice
    Can be invaded by lice;
    So cook sweet and sour rockets instead.

    they love to eat dogs in korea
    but it’s not a very good idea
    they should eat noodles
    instead of poodles
    to stop all that bad diarrhea

      A smart limerick-writer named Paulus
      Writes poems that don’t contain cuss
      A master of rhyme
      And doesn’t write slime
      And that’s a nice change for all of us

      there was a young vampire called mable,
      whose periods were always quite stable,
      at every full moon,
      she took out a spoon,
      and drank herself under the table.

    One of the difficulties with limericks is getting a nice flowing rhythm. The problem is that the reader may not phrase it the way the writer wrote it.
    Sometimes a hyphen can help, as below:

    My dog is a small breed of terrier
    Will drink no-other water than Perrier
    If you provide an’thing cheaper
    She’ll screw-up her brown peepers
    And take a bite outa your derrière

    …with apologies for being just a tad pretentious and school-marmy!
