Limerick: A five line (usually humorous) poem.
Lines 1, 2 and 5 rhyme, and lines 3 and 4 rhyme.
Here are three examples:
Dairy cows like to munch
On pasture for dinner and lunch
So we donít use toxic spray
(It gets in the way)
Of their healthy salad bar brunch.
Our farming sustains the earth
Infusing land with life and rebirth
We nurture the soil
Through hard work and toil
The effort justified by the worth.
OV milk is what I drink
It never goes down the sink
For itís as creamy as can be
And produced organically
By small farmers, not Food, Inc.!
