My Mouse Is Rather Fond of Cheese by Kenn Nesbitt

My mouse is rather fond of cheese
from hereabouts or overseas
like cheddars, parmesans and bries
in brick or wheel or ball.

He’ll eat ricotta, feta too,
plus gorgonzola, gouda, blue,
in sandwiches or cheese fondue,
my mouse will eat them all.

He’ll have havarti for a snack,
a slice or two, and then a stack
of mozarella, Swiss and jack,
he thinks they’re oh so nice.

But though my mouse and I agree
we both enjoy a tasty brie,
I’ll miss my mouse because, you see,
my cat is fond of mice.
