Michael Daws


Swiss Cheese Disease

I suffer from Swiss cheese disease:
I can’t remember names.
I couldn’t tell you if you’re called
John, Jeremy or James.
From time to time a name will stick
within the cheesy folds,
But most of all, it seems the names
just dribble through the holes.


Michael Daws lives in Norway, where he works as a medical researcher. He hasn’t published any books, but is responsible for a large body of scientific literature that he doubts would make anybody chuckle.
