Cheese (2010)

by Alexis Marie

The cat in the hat ran to the box

To stand next to the fox with chicken pox

Who eyed the crazy bird throwing rocks

At Goldie Locks who dressed as a cow

To moo at the moon like a dog

Who sat on a log smoking his pipe

While on top of a cat that choked from the fog

In which a gnat was hiding in

Running away from the frog in the garbage bin

And they were all waiting for Swiss cheese
