Coat Your Melons

posted on June 22, 2001

Calcium for strong bones, and stiff melons…

Honeydew, honeydew, with a life so short you last less than 12 days.

Calcium, calcium to the rescue come and lengthen honeydew's stay.

Plunk, plunk, in calcium dunk to protect your rind.

Glee, glee, you now last three weeks before you perish.

Yummy, yummy, there's no difference to the tummy in a taste tester trial.

Test, test, application could best be applied in the field.
