On a Hasidic Theme
For my aunt Pesye-Chana and my uncle Shaye-Yidl
The Rebbe Reb Dovidl dwelt in Talne,
Now he abides in Rachmistrivke.
Currently I reside in New York
Although I hail from Moskalivke.
It’s quite a distance from New York to
’Twixt the Rebbe and me—a remoteness
Whilst I revel in profane dancing and
He rejoices in God with ritual chant
