Pimento Cheese, Please

A favorite nibble at our wedding brunch
On a small sandwich it was fun to munch

Guest voices rose in a crescendo, please
Give us more of that pimento cheese

A special spread southerners admire
When Yankees try it they get quite inspired

To eat the stuff a lot and more
What is this creation, they do implore

Southerners call it pimento cheese
Not sure you can get it overseas

But in the south it’s a common treat
Without which no buffet is ever complete

I like it especially on burgers grilled
When I do this for friends they become rather thrilled

Their voices rise in a crescendo, please
Give us more of that pimento cheese

Where do you get these pimentos, they ask
Pulling them from olives must be quite a task

They come in a jar all by themselves
Right there in the store on the canned veggie shelves

Add onion and mayo to plain old cheddar
And chop in pimentos to make it taste better

A dab of mustard to top off the spread
Refrigerate three hours and then go ahead

And serve it to friends at your next dinner party
But warn them ahead it is rather hearty

Their voices will rise in a crescendo, please
Give us more of that pimento cheese.
