IF ONLY ROCKS WERE EDIBLE- a song my Widjiwat friends wrote for Bowden.

If only rocks were edible. I wish that it were so.
Instead of to the market to the quarry I would go.

I'd boil up some granite and nibble on some slate;
Pickled quartz and limestone steaks I'd heap upon my plate.

Bowls of pebbles and chips of shale laid out like finger food;
I think I would like marble best if it were chopped and stewed.

The one concern I'd have is what would happen when
The rocks which I had eaten came out the other end.


Metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary-
Mix 'em in a pot you've got a rocky recipe.

Wanting something sweet- then there's something you should try;
Nothing hits the spot like a piece of gravel pie.

With zero fat in every snack they're good for your waist
Even so, I must confess, they're an acquired taste.

I urge you all to disregard my Mother's belief
That eating lots of rocks could be harmful to your teeth.

do you know if any wijiwats live around my area?
i'd really like to meet some.
i'll give them presents and treats.

i spelled widjiwat wrong.
that's probably a big offense.
