This morning a Facebook memory popped up, reminding me of something I had written years ago. Some days I’m a poet >>> most days, I just like chips.
How about you?
What are your favourite flavour/kind of chips?
Ode to Ketchup Chips
Ketchup Chips, how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love how your vinegary overtones,
Cut the smooth sweetness,
Setting up the expected saltiness,
For glorious potato chip delight!
I love how you stain my fingers
a radiant red,
and that licking them off,
one by one,
is the only way to clean hands.
I am not so in love with ketchup,
but ah, as chips,
Wishing I could only make,
each bag last forever,
but alas, Frito-Lays slogan,
“Betcha can’t eat just one!”,
has me chipless,
