Some Typewriter Rodeo poems are serious. Some are timely. This one is about cheese.
The Benefits of Cheese
Triangles of brie,
squares of cheddar,
Tiny flakes of parmesan,
melted mozzarella bread.
Messy spicy queso,
mounds of goat cheese on your greens.
Sometimes I get that craving
and just want
But then it gives me nightmares,
makes my stomach twist and ache.
Stains my favorite jeans
I have to clean my microwave.
So you may ask, with all these cons,
what are the benefits of cheese?
well, there’s the taste
and all the shapes.
Unwrap me one more cheese stick, please?
