Ketchup Packets

Life is full of ketchup packets
Little sachets
Full of goo

Just more junk between the brackets
[Birth and death
For me and you]

Everywhere I look detritus
Fragments, shavings,
Leavings, scree

Just more stuff that isn’t needed
[Just like, well
Quite frankly – me]

3 Thoughts to “Ketchup Packets

    1. A large number of my favorite authors are 19th century British, so I get a lot of words from there… However, “scree” came from Thesaurus.com.
