Rhyme and punishment

Gene Weingarten on

WASHINGTON -- Good news. It is time for more "pokes" / which are poems retelling old jokes.

Stan and the Rabbi, retold as a Shakespearean sonnet

Oh rabbi, Stan is here with troubling news:

"My son, to whom I've taught the Jewish ways,

Just said to me that he has Christian views

And Christian will he be for all his days!"

"It's funny, Stanley, that you came to me

For with my son I've known the selfsame pain:

While raised a Jew, a Christian now is he!

This thing has nearly driven me insane."
