The Vanishing Cheese

My cheese keeps a-vanishing!

The mystery thief needs banishing!

For every time I brew my tea

Elusive bandits pinch my brie.

The feta from my salad strays…

This skinflint never even pays

For the cheddar that he munches

Or the Edam for his brunches.

Then there was my mozzarella

Eaten by the greedy fellah.

Aye! One day I watched him flee

His twirling tail I did see.

A penny-pinching, cheeky, mouse

Scuttling through my fridge and house.

I set the trap with parmesan

And chuckled at my wicked plan.

But when the criminal was caught

I honestly felt quite distraught!

He looked at me and yelped out loud

Quivering whiskers, pink ears bowed.

I let him go. ‘Sir, as you please…

Go ahead and eat my cheese!’
