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.
