The Great Chip Famine

Local media is leading a lament on the scarcity of chips. WA pubs can no longer guarantee these sides with the Parmy this side of Christmas. Massive floods and a broken supply line in the East have dried up the supply of potatoes – so chips and crisps are off the menu. (Mind you, bare supermarket shelves tell us many other staples have temporarily disappeared as well)

Hence today’s Collect and Haiku:

Collect
O Great Provider who sent manna to the Children of Israel in the Wilderness. Grant us the sense of proportion to realise how well we remain fed in a world that is hungry. Transform this realisation into compassion that is motivated to share what we have with others. In this is your Glory revealed.

Haiku
No spuds to make chips
So easy to blame supply
Why not grow our own?
