It was your shape that caught my eye at first.
Shallow, I know.
But it’s honest.
Colour was next.
And once I met you…
I had no idea what I did before you.
The way you felt in my hands.
The way you moved.
The way you…
I adore that cute top.
And I liked banging your bottom a little.
You know, when it was needed.
I think a lot of you, Ketchup.
You’ll never be catsup to me.


So, I lost a game of Facebook Scrabble to Brandy.

We had a wager on it. I have to write and post a poem about Ketchup, wear a shirt with the collar popped all day, and send her an embarrassing pic. (Me wearing a popped collar.)

That was the poem.

    I was all hot and bothered until I realized that you were talking about ketchup, yuck! Can we bet something so that I can get you to write a poem about mustard?

    I love that you have to walk around with a pooped collar! What fraternity are you rushing this spring?

    I would pay to see that picture. Have a favorite charity?

  4. “Catsup” is a word that was made up by the French just to make us feel less sophisticated. I’m sure of it!

    You really need to start cheating… or Brandy will have you writing poems about mustard next…

  13. brandy says:

    I like the idea of you writing a mustard poem next. With the way you play, you could do a whole series on condiments.

    Just kidding. You beat me a lot too.

    Nice poem!

  15. brandy says:

    Of course I didn’t delete it. I may need it in the future.

  16. brandy says:

    Did that sound both sweet and ominous at the same time? That was the chord I was hoping to strike.
