      • "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."

        I might like cheese, but I ain't writing a poem about it.

        Camembert is round, not square, when I'm if France, I'll eat it there. Mozzarella from the land of Tarantella. Feta from the land of Greece, gee, I'd love to munch a piece. Some might think England far better, to let us munch a hunk of cheddar. Holey cheese is really bliss, thank you for that all you Swiss. Gouda's yummy in my hands, thank you for that Netherlands. At my next wine & cheese party, I'll serve Danish Cream Havarti.
