A singer, Lovett, namely Lyle,
Was barging up and down the Nile,
When Julia came aboard,
He put away his sword,
And served a cup of chamomile.

To illustrate the other pronunciation of the word chamomile,
a limerick contributed by Gloria Nelson:

A lady so fine and genteel,
While sipping her hot chamomile,
Went into a tizzy,
When her tea became fizzy,
And out jumped a slippery eel.
