MOAB rhymes with Ahab
(the Captain, or the Arab).
It also rhymes with taxicab
and a Brylcreen user's little dab.

MOABites have the gift of gab
and wit that pierces with a stab.
Minds sharp and lean (no fat or flab)
that snap like pinchers on a crab.

With all these rhyming words to grab
any other way to say MOAB
would be offensive, dull and drab
and make us far less prone to blab.

Now if we pronounce MOAB "mobe"
and contemplate this lonely globe
while wearing nothing but a robe
(it's somewhat like the trials of Job).

We soon run out of words that rhyme
"mobe" just won't work most of the time.
To end the same on every line
you'll see that MOAB works just fine.
