Caveman Blues

A caveman speaks to a rock:

Are you food?
Are you shelter?
Do you feel the cold weather?
Do you feel the time passing?
Are you time?
Where is time?
What is crime?
How should I spend the daytime?
It’s either dinner time or war time
Therefore I’m a carnivore.

Why aren’t you talking back?
Did I say something offensive?
What does being offensive even mean?
Being mean?
But what does being mean mean?
To talk?

You’re not mean my rock.
You don’t even talk.
