yom kippur confessions

Oh, Merciful One!
I implore you! Forgiveness!

Forgive me for the Mercedes and all the lobsters
The cheeseburger, my father bought for me
The bacon strips, my mother’s breakfast
Refusal was my first thought
But the fifth commandment
Made it difficult to decide

I am a lost, hungry soul
Void of direction, focus, and cherry blintzes

Show me the true course
To righteousness
And the falafel stand

Oh merciful one
I beg of you
a bissel of mercy
and a sesame bagel
