I found the following verse somewhat amusing:

When the moon hits your eye Like a big pizza pie
That's amore.

When an eel bites your hand And that's not what you planned
That's a moray.

When our habits are strange And our customs deranged
That's our mores.

When your horse munches straw And the bales total four
That's some more hay.

When Othello's poor wife Gets strangled in strife
That's a Moor, eh?

When a Japanese knight Waves his sword in a fight
That's Samurai.

When your sheep go to graze In a damp marshy place,
That's a moor, eh?

When your boat comes home fine And you tied up her line
That's a moor, eh?

When you ace your last tests Like you did all the rest
That's some more "A"s!

When on Mt. Cook you see An aborigine,
That's a Maori.

A comedian-ham With the name Amsterdam
That's a Morey.

When your chocolate graham Is so full and so crammed
That's a s'more, eh?

When you've had quite enough Of this dumb rhyming stuff
That's "No more!", eh?
