“To My Dear and Loving Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar,” by Benjamin J. Chase

Dec 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Poetry

If ever cheese were cheese, then surely you.
I’ll never eat another; that much is true.
If ever cheese was better in a slice,
compare with me, ye pantry mice.
I prize thy taste—so sharp and bold—
the finest dairy Stop N Shop doth hold.
My love is such no other snack will do—
just Wheat Thins richly adorned with you.
