buttered bread & cheese

Crusty bread, slathered in butter,
topped with a thick slice of smelly Swiss cheese.
I remember my Onkel Polde,
and how he and my Tante Gerda would make sandwiches for us. I
could never understand why they used so much butter.
But now I put a little on, and I want more. I add more,
and I still need more, until finally it’s perfect, just
like he used to make it, and I eat it with relish in his honor.
