BHOE LYRICS RICE



Rice

sun shining
the fields open
plants growing

people plowing the fields
rice is being harvested
so the rice grains can be milled

some make an horchata drink
in the Mexican table
some make a champurrado 
chocolate rice porridge 
eaten in the morning by the Filipinos

live as part of the equality equation
do not blame rice for your bulging tummy
It is not the rice's fault
eat what your body needs
which means it can only be half a cup
and not a plateful

flat rice is used in many dishes
pounding it gives 
another taste sensation

the puffed rice in India
is eaten as sweet in Asia

the vinegar is used to make a dressing
that is what we use it for

live as part of the equality equation
do not blame rice 
It is not the rice's fault

eat what your body needs
which means it can only be half a cup
and not a plateful

the sticky rice 
is a  staple in Thailand
cooked with coconut 
and mangoes 

be grateful for the rice's expression
it is here for a purpose

why trade it in the futures market
for profit
when it is here as part of the whole
doing its purpose

the carbohydrates in it
are here for a purpose
do not overeat 
for it will show

we are using it 
to entertain ourselves
not for what rice is here for

let us not blame rice for our weight
It is not the rice's fault

it is here as part of the whole
doing its purpose

I am BHOE
I am Bridging Heaven On Earth
Are you BHOE?
