Fare

What needs be fed
the heart or the head
and how should we know
where to find the best bread?

For the flashiest deal
advertised as a steal
will never deliver
a well-rounded meal.

A worthy question, I think... perhaps you could expand this and give us the answer? But, even if left rhetorical, and we're abandoned to our own devices, it needs to be posed.

I like the rhythm and the manner in which it cuts to the chase. Plus, the pace is so consistent throughout, it almost sounds like a song.

Nicely done.

me thinks it would be neat
if both head and heart could eat
but where indeed to find
food for heart and mind

What I first grasped was your double take on the title. I also agree with Bob...perhaps you should consider writing songs. ;)

Hey bub, thanks man, that's how I started really, with songs.

Hi Oz, I love it!!

Hello Shirley, I'm working on it, don't worry I'll send you a copy as soon as it's done ;)
