It’s ADAR, we know what that means,

Increasing our happiness

Is no hill of beans!

Crazy it is, and more craziness will come,

Purim cheer is on its way

and now, I’m serving up some!


                      GREEN EGGS AND HAM    


For Kosher book lovers everywhere

     Who need aid.

Take a look below.

      The solution is there.

Don’t be afraid.


Sam I Am and Ham will part ways at last.

     That’s the past.


With apologies to Dr. Suess.

     I think it is okay.

There is no ruse.

     Only fun at play.



For Dr. Suess fans

    Of Jewish persuasion

Oi oi oy yoi yoi

     No matter the occasion

Forget the ham.

     Feed that to the lamb.


Will I eat green eggs?

        Sam I Am, not I. 

Not even with soy.

     I will not try.


No, yellow and white please.

     That will be just fine.

I’d prefer that when I dine.

     I’ll eat them with wine.

Even with some cheese.


Just do not make them green.

     No, I will not eat those eggs.

No green eggs for me.

     They won’t be seen

On my plate.

     I might think they’re veg’s

I hate.

     Can’t you see?


Green eggs will not do.

     I will not eat them.

I will not chew.


You can serve them to my pet.


I’m not ready yet.


Yellow eggs, white eggs, yes.

     I know I will eat them.

I don’t have to guess.


I will eat them down low.

     I will eat them up high.

I will eat them in the snow.

     I will eat them in the sky.


I will eat those eggs with bread

     Sam I Am.

I will eat them with a spread.

     Just not with SPAM!
