Can the Ketchup Bottle Return

My fingernail ran off today with a Ketchup bottle, which was strange. I heard they were headed to Calvary, so I knew it was a bit deranged. The rest of the nails were in cahoots, making fun of her behind her back. I did not know what to make of that, sad at the empathy they lack. She called me from Hawaii, and she told me she had made a mistake. She wanted to come home, would we welcome her with steak? The Ketchup bottle was ostracized in Hawaii, for they do not eat meat. In the vegan restaurant they landed in. I told her to get an airplane seat.

If I cannot entertain myself at a time like this, who am I to write?

You are so welcome. I barely look to see who has won. Because I like ALL of the POEMS and judging is so DIFFICULT! Glad it was you. I always judge blind.

Almost impossible to buy bread without soy flour in it in NZ. Also not keen on salted caramel which is another thing that infiltrating the market. Good news is we are well stocked with Ketchup (tomato sauce) in NZ but don't tell everyone. We like the freedom a small population gives us. Great write. Hope your lock down space is not claustrophobic. Regards David.

Very poignant and funny. Hope they catch up, though in South Africa we still call it tomato sauce. Kind wishes, Kai
