Poem by Arthur Conan Doyle


Songs of Action (1898). 24. A Parable


The cheese-mites asked how the cheese got there,
	And warmly debated the matter;
The Orthodox said that it came from the air,
	And the Heretics said from the platter.
They argued it long and they argued it strong,
	And I hear they are arguing now;
But of all the choice spirits who lived in the cheese,
	Not one of them thought of a cow.
