Bread – the food of the world
Every tribe has a bread
Swedish loaves dark with rye
American white loaves of sourdough,
Tortillas in Mexico made of corn.
Bread – the staple of every clime
Every village has a bread.
French baquette, English scone,
Middle east pita and Jewish challah,
India’s chapati and Irish Soda.
Bread – A food of life,
Where people find comfort
At humble kitchen tables, in richest homes,
Served in the soup kitchens, carried in the streets
Jesus served his friends bread and spoke of life.
