Only the brave deserve the Fair
THE BITTER TRUTH
She liked it sour and strong.
He liked it sweet and mild.
So that is OK then.
(Even in Lent it seems)

Kwame (7) and Helen (9)
can tell you something of fair trade.
Half a cedi for a twelve hour day; take home pay
And all the chocolate they can eat?

But what the heck
It's "Fair Trade"
Ash Wednesday. Start of Lent.
Sour and strong; mild and sweet.
My Goodness what a super treat!
But Kwame(7) and Helen (9)cry in their sleep.
"Nice isn't it?"
"After you with the Guardian"
