The Higher Power of Potato Chips

My first attempt at a Higher Power poem, a challenge given by Joyce Sidman.

What do potato chips know?
     You can't resist us.
     There's power in crispness.
     Grease is delicious.

What do potato chips know?
     Our stay is brief.
     Life needs treats.
     Occasionally, salty conquers sweet.

  1. This is fun! Except it makes me think about the potato chips hidden on top of the refrigerator. I love your rhyme/almost rhyme scheme! I have never heard of higher power poems, but am thinking I might have to try one!
