World Without Cheese

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

No Cheese

No Cheese

What an Armageddon

I simply could not believe.

That we would exist without cheese.

How lonely would my cracker be?

What would happen to the saying, “it’s cheesy.”

My burger would fall into complete depression

When cheese seize to exist and causes a food recession

All my friends would cry every day, especially Lisa

Because to her, there is nothing better than cheesy pizza.


There would be a riot across the nation

When people realise there is no Parmesan

Fires would start and everyone would attack the corner beggar

For he saved the last stale piece of cheddar

Mac would have an anxiety attack right away

As Mozzarella takes itself away

Many women would leave their husbands place

As they become obsessed in finding the last strawberry cheesecake

I simply can’t imagine a good meal of lasagna

No cheese to me is no pasta.


Oh God save us please

Give us back the almighty cheese

Don’t let this taste leave my mind

A world without cheese is like committing the greatest crime.

Good one Eric

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 11, 2020:

I did not know you wrote in the horror genre.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on April 11, 2020:

Oh, no Clive! I didn't say that.

What I say is some of us can get without it for months. If we want to eat some similar thing, we can prepare it whenever we get the fresh milk after a cattle gives birth to a calf. We simply heat that milk till it breaks and, adding sugar to it, we cook till it gets drained of water and sets.

Haha.. loved it, very creative and funny!

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 10, 2020:

HaHa, witty! I would simply dry up and die with no cheese. I love this Clive!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 10, 2020:

Since I do like cheese, I am not fond of this scenerio. I did enjoy reading your poem however.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on April 10, 2020:

Very entertaining one. But, I don't hope that much scarcity will take place. Let us hope for better days.

BTW, we do not eat cheese other than once in a blue moon. We are satisfied with our curds and milk.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on April 10, 2020:

Cheese is important. We can not think the world without it.

Sounds like the greatest love of all

Tiyasha Maitra from Gurgaon on April 09, 2020:

Oooh. Can't imagine a world without cheese. That would be mighty sad. Nice poem Clive, hope it doesn't come true though. Take care.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 09, 2020:

I agree Clive, this is a scary scenario. I love my cheese.
