A Passover Poem (with thanks to Clement Clarke Moore) by Ruth Greenwald

‘Twas a few days before Passover

‘Twas a few days before Passover,
And all through the house,
A certain woman was cleaning, and so was her spouse.

The mess they had made
The whole year before
Had to be sorted, tidied, tossed-out, and stored.

The kids were coming, the friends were, too,
And the couple was terrified,
Over how much to do.

So they both knuckled down
Under all of the stress,
And started to work on their own messy mess.

“Do we really need this,
Do we really need that?
Oh dear, it’s a good thing we don’t have a cat.”

And this, my dear friends,
Is what we must do,
In order not to annoy all the kids and the crew.

Ruth Greenwald

And that is the story of my life for the next few days!

Awesome poem. Sadly true that we have to clean up after our own messes, isn't it? Be sure to leave just a few crumbs for the kiddies to find and sweep up with their feather. :-)
