    Feeling a bit silly. Enjoy!

    I Have No Cheese: An Ode to the Lactose Intolerance.

    Here I am so broken hearted,

    I don’t know what got this all started.

    from a very young age dairy and I have parted,

    had two pieces of pizza, to the bathroom I darted.


    Milk and cookies I’d like, pretty please,

    Thoughts of Gouda and feta weaken my knees,

    alas for me there can will be no cheese


    Oh for a simple dish of ice cream,

    visons of a mint-summers night creamy dream.


    Soybean and natural products won’t do,

    I just want a cheeseburger with the rest of the crew,

    hot chocolate with milk, sweet as morning dew,

    the effect of 2 percent turns me a greenish hue.


    Even organic dairy won’t work,

    In that damn carton disaster doth lurk,

    causing a gaseous cloud like a murk,

    this crap never happened to Captain Kirk.


    I look for a new connection, but find no ease.

    any indulgence causes an ungentle breeze,

    the breath of a most gastronomical disease.

    my burger is undressed, for I can have no more cheese,

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
