Don'T Make Eye Contact - Poem by Yoni Dvorkis
'But Motek, it's Hanukkah!
You MUST be with the FAMILY on HANUKKAH! ! '
(Ok Mom, sure Mom, right away Mom, I'll come home)
'Rabbi Grossman DOES do such LOVELY services!
Every Jew in Suffolk County will be there!
Challah Bread! Matza Ball Soup! SONGS on the ACCORDION! '
(Merry, cheery, Hava Nagilla surface tension happiness...)
'Smile everyone, and I'll take a picture! ! ! '
(CHEESE! ! ! !)
'Motek... I DO wish you spoke with him already...
I mean, it's been over a YEAR now...notta WORD!
It BREAKS my heart to see you two like this...'
(I'm sorry Mom)
'I mean honest to ELOHIM! !
Brothers should LOVE each other! ! !
How can you be so NONCHALANT about this, so CALLOUS? ? ?
Breaks my heart.'
(Your answer lies right in front of you Mom,
You just need to know where to look...and where not to)
