Blessed are the Cheesemongers

For the Rononvan Decima Challenge with CHASE as the prompt word on the C rhyme line.

Blessed are the Cheesemongers

The Soviets were first to send
a cosmonaut beyond the air
we breathe. Gagarin had a rare
resolve, was slightly round the bend
not knowing where his flight would end.
So then began the thrilling chase
to fire some men to outer space,
be first to land upon the Moon,
discern from which cheese it was hewn.
A Gorgonzola carapace?
