To a Cheese
and post notes and photos about your poem like Alexander Blackie.
On tracking down and locating the source of a horrible smell in the kitchen..
May the Dear Lord deliver us
Not from creatures carnivorous
But edibles less frivolous
Like cheeses odoriferous
Who gives a damn about Edam
First made in Dutch North Amsterdam
Or nutty-tasting Leerdam
And Czechoslovak Abertam
When some people find delicious
Or remain highly suspicious
Of a cheese that is nutritious
To say else might be pernicious
Called Kalimpong from West Bengal
As chewy as a rubber ball
Which doesn’t smell too bad at all
Or clog you with cholesterol
They're wrong. The foul effluvium
Causing our nasal odium
As if it were plutonium
Is just a cheese no nose can bear
Once it’s been opened to the air
So, please, cheese eaters be aware
The culprit is your Camembert!
