"nursery rime"

Ahem - that's an uncommon homonym. "rime" is hoar frost on an object. A type of poem is a "rhyme".

The UK Victorian temperance societies' children's "Band of Hope" had modified nursery rhymes about the effects of alcohol.

Little Tommy Dun, the piper’s son

Drank some beer and tried to run.

He tripped his toes and broke his nose

And went to jail in ragged clothes.
