More Cheese, Please

Written for the 30-day creative writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike of We Work For Cheese.  Today's prompt is cheese.

Cheese, cheese, beautiful cheese
Provolone, Swiss and Edam

Colby, Jack and Muenster, too
You just can't beat 'em

A plate of Havarti, creamy and fine
So lovely with a glass of wine

For my pizza I gotta say
Mozzarella makes my day

Gouda, oh Gouda, smokey or plain
Drives my Quesadillas insane

Mac and cheese down on the farm
With lots of Cheddar and a little Parm

What more can I say about this food prepared from the pressed curd of milk?  More cheese, please!


  1. This is awesome! I'll look forward to more of your posts for this challenge if they are this entertaining!

  2. Now I want some cheese! Great post :)

  3. Interestingly enough, considering it's about my least favorite food, I actually like this little poem. Well done. ;)

  4. Fantastic! I'm not even going to make fun of you a little bit, it was that good. You get 20 points for this one! :-)

  5. I really wish you hadn't mentioned Mac 'n Cheese. It's lunchtime here, and I'm starving. But I won't be satisfied unless I can get me some, and that's not likely since McMac 'n Cheese hasn't launched their franchise yet.

  6. Nicely done! I'm impressed that cheese can be such good subject matter!

  7. Do you REALLY like cheese this much, or are you just rhyming us down the primrose path?

    (either way, it was fun :)

  8. Linda, this poetry is far from cheesy! It's very very good! Nicely done!

  9. Such a clever lady. That was really fun, Linda. Good job!

  10. Yummy! I love cheese so yes, "More cheese, please!" :)

    Loved this, Linda!

  11. You are SO CREATIVE... this was AWESOME!!! Love it love it love it. I just "wrote." You created!

  12. Yeah! Someone else who took the poetry route. And nicely executed too!

  13. P.J. - Thank you. I'm not sure about 30 consecutive days, but we'll see.

    Babs- Yeah, all those cheese posts made me hungry too.

    Ziva- Glad you liked the poem even if you don't like cheese.

    Nicky- Thanks for not making fun of me on Day 1.

    Mike WJ- Coincidentally, I'm making that tonight to take to dinner with friends.

    laughingmom- Thank you! Yes, cheese is very versatile, even when writing about it.

    notactuallygod - I really do like cheese, although maybe not as seriously as Nicky.

    Linda- Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. Now let's see if I can keep it up.

    Jayne- Thanks, this should prove to be an interesting month. ;)

    Talon- Ah, another cheese lover! Glad you liked it. It's good to see you blogging again.

    Katherine- Aww, that's too sweet. I liked yours too!

    Mike - Thank you! The topic seemed to lend itself to a cheesy poem.

  14. Please tell me you were a cheerleader in a past life! Ha! This was fun and I did read it like a cheer. Nicely done. ;-)

  15. Wonderful read. I laughed as I read each word aloud. Your poems are always a delight to read...this one is no exception:~)

  16. Oh how perfect! I love cheese, and this poem = awesome!

  17. 00dozo- No, sorry, not cheerleader material here. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Sara- Thank you! I see you are having a wonderful time in your travels.

    Meleah- Thank you! I love cheese, too.
