Crocodile Kentucky

The skin is the best part of a nugget
Croc Kentucky now cooling in bucket
   It tastes like chicken stew
   Chase it down with home brew
I should worry about my weight?  F(orget) ‘t!

Author's Notes:
I used slant rhymes “nugget” & “bucket” as there is no perfect rhyme for “bucket” - and in true Limerick style, it "rhymes" with the end of line 5 ;-)

BTW Crocodile meat tastes like chicken - I have eaten it :-)

In anapest trimeter:  **/**/**/ = lines 1, 2 & 5 (I added an additional feminine syllable at the end of the lines)
                     **/**/ = lines 3 & 4
