    How about a communal poem where every two lines end with rhymes of Camembert and Gorgonzola and into which other cheeses may be introduced at the various poets' discretion?

    The wine, the bread, some butter and Camembert
    But the cashier sensed sadness: no companion there to share
    She slipped into his bag a mini sized Gorgonzola
    And upon its rind her number was writ there wholly...

    The lonely soul unpacked his bag and saw it there
    And wondered if t'was really the smiling cashier who'd dared
    But the quaffs of wine didn't gird a resolve to call her
    Nor did the exquisite taste of the unexpected free Gorgonzola

    This might well overlap with One Line Never Ending Poem which I've just noticed! 😀

    This is pretty insensitive thread; have you considered that some people don't like Gorgonzola and may not want to contribute?

    Disputes over such things are par for the course on a message board.

    Not necessarily. Shouldn't contributors make an effort to not get drawn into extended arguments about Cheese, its manufacturing, or consumption, for the benefit of the consciences of those who find the consumption of cheese offensive? Do you not remember the carnage of the "cheese wars".

    Blessed are the chessmakers **

    **or indeed all manufacturers of dairy products.

    Instead upon her address he bestowed a
    Nice big piece of Gouda
    Although he did come close to let her
    Have a nibble at his Cheddar

    A cardigan fashioned from Brie
    will never be home to a flea.
    You'll look really nice
    be followed by mice
    and always be welcome for tea.

    British cheese: how I miss the taste,
    This NZ stuff is just a waste
    They call it by every European name
    But in the end it's just not the same. 😞
