I plotted against die Herr.

Only to be stripped bare.*

I led an onslaught against the prophet's song.

Only to be proven wrong.

I sought to uproot the Sages' branch

Only to discover I had met my match.

I whispered: "I shall overcome"

Only to be numbered among the frum.

In the twilight of my life.

I now slumber, without a wife.

As I skim through the verses

I ponder on my urges.

I plea for a time that is neither day nor night.

Only then can I relinquish my might.**

*Hosheah 2:5

**Avot 4:1
