Concession

Bob Hazelton at http://averagepoet.blogspot.com/ is a master with word, cadence, and rhyme. Sometimes his work is shallow and funny, other times he poses profound questions, but never does his work fail to inspire me. A recent post http://averagepoet.blogspot.com/2008/01/fare.html prompted me to respond with my version of a continuation.


Somewhere we find a concession
between the head and the heart.
Without a forthright confession
A brain has nowhere to start.

Yet a heart with no reigns
will find a treacherous trail.
Feelings, tempered with brains
seems the least likely to fail.
