Face Value

Written by: Mike Bayles

At face value
I would recommend
this café to you.
Let me be your guide,
I will not lie.
The food is great,
the menu varied.
The ambiance
allows for a relaxed evening.
There’s even a fern
hanging by the window
next to the piano.
On a stormy day
It’s a great place to seek shelter.
There’s a sturdy cabinet
in back
where you can put your possessions
for safe keeping.
Let me tell you it’s great,
I’m a critic,
and I know the score.
