Coming late to this thread, but I'll just add one of my own cheese poems (I have three cheese poems so far). Rikki Carroll's cheesemaking blog ( was kind enough to publish it some years back:

The inspiration for this poem was the news that, apparently, in 2011, cheese was the most stolen food item in the world.

A case of hit and rennet

Who filched the fetta
Creamed the cream cheese from the shelf,
Who's on the lam with Edam,
Added parma to their pelf?

Who wangled all the Singles,
Put their finger in the Swiss,
Took a motza Mozzarella
Ere we knew what was amiss?

Who touched the Dutch,
Took the camemberts and bries,
Lock, stock and bocconcini
Without so much as please?

There's a lack amongst the lactose
Now the Gorgonzola's gone,
Some rotter took Ricotta
And the Philly's all forlorn -

Who took the cheese?
What could have caused this crime?
Can we put it down to culture,
Or was it just - enzyme?
