Haikus from our home, on Hannukah.

by Decemberbaby

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,

politically.

-()-()-()-()-()-()-()-()-

Eight crazy nights? Done.

Now we can reinstate our

usual bedtime.
