The Fare

it is fair to say
the pair felt the fare was outrageous

to pare the fare
one of the pair took out a knife to pare his pear

the falling peelings sent an unmistakable message
which the cabbie quickly understood

to be fair, he pared his fare to half


I’m playing silly with words and a prompt from Writer’s Digest
Poetry Prompt, Write a Fair Poem.
