On top of Old Smokey
By subtle degrees
She stole my edam
And left it to freeze
Back in the factory
A government mule
Gobbles his cheddar
While perched on a stool
If you are hungry
Bent on your goal
Some mozzarella
Is good for the soul
But if you are happy
Or caught in a sneeze
Maybe try sharing
A bite of that cheese

An entertaining little bit of nonsense rhyme for
