Cheesy Poetry

Writer G.K. Chesterton lived from 1874 to 1936. Obviously, poets during his time had more pressing matters to write about than a love of cheese or he never read Arthur Conan Doyle’s delicious masterpiece, A Parable:

“The cheese-mites asked how the cheese got there,
      And warmly debated the matter;
The Orthodox said that it came from the air,
      And the Heretics said from the platter.
They argued it long and they argued it strong,
      And I hear they are arguing now;
But of all the choice spirits who lived in the cheese,
      Not one of them thought of a cow.”

I was going to write a cheesy poem myself, but how do I top that one?

    That cheese poem hit the spot this morning. I can’t believe no one thought of the cow. I guess that is the way experts think. They must have forgotten about Occam;s razor.

      I did not know about Occam’s razor, so thanks for enlightening me. Learn something new every day! And, with that, I may need to eat a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch – a minimal lunch!

        It’s basicly a theory that perfers a simple explanation to the complicated. Give a problem to a group of experts, and they will complicate the matter every time.

    I am a cheese-head (sort of) and this was a delicious poem about the absurdity of committee debates.

      Neither did I, Ally. I should be more aware of this poetry since I am from the land of cows and cheese.

      I will have to investigate further. I see there are a number of Father Brown books and a TV series based on those books.
