Haikus from our home, on Hannukah.

Despite popular

culture, kids don’t beg for gifts.

A Hannukah win!


Deep fried, laced with crack,

the perfect Hannukah treat:

Krispy Kreme doughnuts.


Beeswax candles spark

a toddler’s wonder. “How can I

touch that flaming thing?”


Cholesterol: up

fifty percent. Admit it,

latkes are worth it.


Dreidel, dreidel, spin.

Maybe if I lose it will

end this boring game.


Say, what happened there?

A great miracle: some oil

burned a long, long time.


The miracle of

oil is just the most correct,



Eight crazy nights? Done.

Now we can reinstate our

usual bedtime.
