This poem, written by eleventh grade student Tim Parsley, put a smile on everyone’s face who heard it yesterday in class.
O how I could tell the whole world of cheese
Monterrey Jack, Swiss, and Asiago
For these I would travel the seven seas:
Colby, American, Pepper, Queso
It lays upon oven roasted chicken
It lays upon tacos, burgers, and fries
It drips on my fingers, I start lickin’
It drips upon my shirt, my heart it ties
I will love a girl who brings me fromage
Together, cheese-praises we’ll always sing
If you bring cheese, then I’ll bring a corsage
Oh! You and cheese please be my ev’rything!
There lays in dark lovers upon a bed
Gluttonous and putrid: two lovers dead.
