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?
