Stirring the soup

I always find it difficult
to make a quick decision:
Would choosing Campbell’s Oxtail Soup
besmirch me in derision?

The Campbells faction would say ‘No’
— they’re loyal to the brand —
but what of Baxter’s Beefy Broth,
‘The Finest Ever Canned’?

You see my cruel dilemma,
the cause of my dismay?
The Campbell/Baxter problem
simply will not go away.

Round and round the problem turns,
in an endless loop
— and what is it that distinguishes
a broth from a soup?
