Cheese- #200! ! !


The cheese.
The soft,
the sweet,
the cold,
the melted.

I am writing about cheese.
You might ask,
Why did this happen?
Well,
Poets have been
Mysteriously silent
on the subject of
cheese.

I’m going to make a new subtopic
Cheese is worthy of my praise.
What about yours?

A message to
My fellow poets:
Cheese currently requires our attention.
The least we can do is offer it.

I am writing about cheese.
When did this happen?
It’s just another food,
Equal to writing about
Pasta, or peaches.
Or broccoli.

But I’m not giving my time
to broccoli.
I’ve already done
My brococoli dance.
(Yes, I spelled that wrong on purpose.
You may never know why.)
Pasta doesn’t deserve my time
because there’s none of it in my pantry.
I’m not giving my time to peaches either,
however deliciously flawless they may be.
Instead,
I will graciously lay down my time
with a flourish,
with a bow
at the feet of
Queen Cheese.

The cheese.
The soft,
the sweet,
the cold,
the melted.

I am writing about cheese.
You might ask,
Why did this happen?
Well,
Poets have been
Mysteriously silent
on the subject of
cheese.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.' ~G.K. Chesterton

How did I come up with this idea? Well...I just asked one of my friends 'hey, I'm about to hit 200 on Poemhunter, what should i do? ' This quote has been one of our inside jokes for a while, so she went 'what haven't you wrote about yet? hmmm. maybe write about cheese? ' and I replied, 'U ARE A GENIUS! ! ! I'M GONNA WRITE THIS RIGHT NOW.'
Yup. That's pretty much exactly how it happened.
By the way- go check out her page! Pass on the love! *Marinara Sauce Chen*
