My next speech for Toastmasters is “Speaking to Entertain” … I have to be humorous for 15-20 minutes. Ug.
Anyway, I thought I might do it on food, so was looking for some interesting quotes about food and found this:
“The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”
Well, never one to back away from a writing challenge, I came up with one in about 5 minutes. Could it be the very first poem about cheese?
Ah, the joy of brie,
so good with a cup of tea
the flavor so smokey
…on toast? How hokey!
Yes, that’s the cheese for me!
