Salad Bowl

by Brian Rock

It’s fun to go bowling
At the old Salad Bowl.
The ball’s made of lettuce,
So let us all roll

The ball down the alley
To the ten standing pins
Made of carrots and squash
Till somebody wins.

We’ll knock down the veggies,
Then we’ll cheer as they fall.
And when we have finished
Tossed salad for all!

From the perils of life in a salad bowl to spicy dances behind cupboard doors, Brian Rock and John Moerner lead a poetic and playfully picturesque romp through the secret life of food.
