How many?

How many?

by Elizabeth Challinor

Have you ever seen such a thing in your life?

You think the mice are blind

But have you ever looked at the floor of your mind?

Strewn with pieces of enticing cheese

Stilton, cheddar, camembert, roquefort, brie, feta,

Gouda, mozzarella, parmesan, burrata

The list might not go on forever

But how many times do you get caught in the thought traps of your mind?
