(Robyn Shoulson, Passover 2012 "The Street where you live," from “My Fair Lady”)
I have often sat, for a meal before,
But there's something here tonight I didn't feel before,
And so what has changed
That it feels so strange?
Why is this meal so different tonight?
Where's those fluffy rolls, that I like to eat,
That I always like to dip in gravy with the meat?
Now there's Matza – flat,
Dry and crumbly.
Just one way that it’s different tonight.
And oh! Those wonderful greens plates –
Steamed, sauteéd, or frittered or plain.
Tonight, we remember our mean state,
We eat bitter herbs – horseradish or romaine.
We have dips tonight – no, not the salsa plate.
And we're sitting at an angle (not upright and straight).
These are only four,
Yet I'm sure there's more
Things so strange and so different tonight!
