Festival of Lights

An original composition featuring near accurate rhyming.

On Kislev's 25th sunset
Latkes and Sufganiyot
Enjoyed by the menorah
Opposite the mezozah

With the light from the shamash
The diaspora have a bash
Gambling with wooden dreidel
Drinking wine from Israel

So come on wear your yarmulkes
'Cause now it's time for Chanukah
Come on drop your pants with pride
If you have been circumsized

Friends, won't you join us tonight
For our festival of lights?
We don't need the Jesus Christ
For our festival of lights

It has the same meter as "Take up the white man's burden" by Kipling. I would like to read a poem called "Take up the rabbi's burden".

Take up the Rabbi's burden
No Sunday service or sermons
Temple every Saturday
Unlike the white man's Mormons

Well, don't let that stop you from dropping your pants.
