Absent Minded Cheese

How can one enjoy a Schubert song,
Without wishing to increase the pleasure,
By taking bits of absent minded cheese
And eating them with relish to prolong
This lazy, beneficial leisure,
In which one can indulge one's passion
For listening; the aim of which is to please
Oneself?  I suppose one could indulge
In absent minded marzipan,
But this must be tempered by something stronger than
Schubert, and so one returns to cheese,
For though one's life seems sweet,
It is necessary to pretend it is grown up and serious,
And reflect this in the things which one chooses to eat.
