When photographing a piece of cheese

to make it smile or even smirk

you must be nice and you must say please

for just saying  ‘cheese’  will never work.


To get it to smile you must have a plan

it needs patience and persevering

and always speak out as loud as you can

for cheese is most hard of hearing.

    A loverly piece of matured Whimsy; piquant with subtle flavors of rhyme.

    Michael this theme is getting a bit cheesy, or maybe that's just me and my incessant need for ever-witty commentary, lol
    (forgive me, I was dropped one too many times as a child)

      May be it's cheesy but as long as it doesn't grate.
      It's one thing to be dropped but were you ever picked up?

          Any type for me - trouble is it's not the healthiest option eaten in excess.

          We have a load of idiots chase a cheese down a steep hill just up the road from us, once a year, half of them have various limbs removed from various orifices by paramedics. They all be nuts.
          I admire your patience with the, I assume, inking.
          Thanks for the smile.

            we have a village near us where they hold an annual bottle kicking championship - been going for millenia but put at risk these days by continual risk assessments by the woke brigade.

            Mmmm, yummy. Cheese.

            • Michael Edwards

              And what type is your favourite.

              • Goddess of the Mist

                I love almost all cheese, but one of the best I've had was a smoked gouda. Delicious.

                As i said to the milkman 'dairy Lee' this morning. I think you're wasting your time trying to get a one night stand with 'prim Ula'. You might as well stuff it in a gorgons 'ola.
