THERE IS A YOUNG WOMAN

There is a young woman from Shoreditch 
Whose chocolate brownies are moreish.
     Many lads from afar
     Wash it down with a jar.
Her secret ingredient is hashish.

________________________________________________________________
In the limerick, I overcame the problem of rhyming with the name of the London borough, Shoreditch, by using British slang (slant rhyme), moreish, meaning much more.

moreish or morish ('m??r?? ) adjective. informal. (of food) causing a desire for more. E.g. These cakes are very moreish.
