#salty

so now, here is the thing.

 

as a kid i was not allowed

crisps.

 

gran disapproved

& mum had little money,

on her own with four

of us kids to feed.

 

it is just potato.

 

i had game chips when

i went to the marsham

 

court hotel to dance

the new year in. i wore a kilt.

my mother did not come.then

my nice brother went to work

on the railway. one day in secret

he bought me a packet of my own.

 

early employment as a cook

entailed cooking crisps, oh joy,

& paid for it.

 

these days i eat them as & when i like.
