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
Should I worry about my weight? forget ‘t!
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 meter: **/**/**/ = lines 1, 2 & 5 (I added an additional feminine syllable at the end of the lines)
**/**/ = lines 3 & 4
