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!"

--Sponsored Video--

"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."
