Georgetown did not go with my rhyme,
So in haste and with little time,
Something quickly came to me-
The acronym of Georgetown - GGT.

Canibul - NO SPEARGUNS BRUDDA. I repeat - no spearguns. Hawaiian slings only. You burn more calories too.

Ahhhh.
I cannot think of anything to rhyme with poem, except jeroboam (meaning a large bottle of wine of 3 - 4.5 l) which is difficult to work into a romantic paean.
Can you help me, Tony?

Kill the Lionfish wherever they roam,
For each you kill a sip off the jeroboam.
Jeroboam was a King in Israel,
These Lionfish are going to hell.

Yes, as with any other predatory reef fish, of similar size, from the same area.
Lionfish, as any predatory reef fish, can accumulate ciguatoxins to levels of concern, in certain localized ciguatoxic endemic areas.
