This Just Might Make Me Turn Zoroastrian
A small band of people led the way,
Through the darkest night they prayed.
Seeking religious freedom,
Did more than just survive.
They defeated a mighty empire,
Free to believe.
Just the way they wanted to,
It made history.
OMG — or OMFSM, for that matter.
To steal a line from a religion different from that to which I was raised: Tin Pan Alley, Tin Pan Alley….Why hast thou forsaken me?)
(And what’s up w. the GOP dissing Jews again? Via Atrios, this, from The Washington Monthly.
So Chanukah don’t rate? Feh. I’ll stay Jewish and a Democrat just to spite Norman Podhoretz.)
