Ode to Ketchup Chips
First posted online, Tuesday December 15, 2009 -
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,
