Ode to Ketchup Chips

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,

once again.
