Today's prompt offered several quotes from poets past. I chose G.K. Chesterton: "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese." I did actually write a trochaic tetrameter that mentions cheese before, but I decided to throw together another one today.


I have written of cheese before;
I will write of cheese again:
Cheese and bacon—I want more!
Whoops! My diet’s down the drain.
Cheez Whiz? Never! Icky stuff.
All my dairy must be real.
Now I guess I’ve had enough,
Just until another meal.

Great job with using one of the quotes for inspiration. I actually found it kind of hard this time around.

Love it! And I can't stand Cheez Whiz either. ;-)

I was so hopeful someone would write of cheese. Wonderful, unfathomably delectable, poetic cheese!

Thank goodness I'm not the only one who wrote about cheese! ^_^
