so now, here is the thing.


as a kid i was not allowed



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.
