Bred by bread

Bred by Bread I was told in youth I was BRED by BREAD To eat and full my skinny frame And I ATE at least EIGHT slices of bread Until my hunger could be sated But there was some bread I really hated I don’t know why but when it came to RYE My expression came on very WRY When that day comes that I will wed I’LL walk my bride right down the AISLE For sure the reception’s down the shore And there’ll be food and bread and more and afterwards we'll rent a SUITE To be with her will be so SWEET Only Homos Allowed Contest Jerry T.

haha. I like how you made a homophone out of sure and shore. I know some people that pronounce sure that same way as shore but I don't think it is a true homophone. this was a cute tale you concocted!
