The Older You Get

Time really does start to fly,
And not only when you're having fun.
You race to try to catch it, catch up,
To feel more, be more, not to miss out,
But the moments still pass right by.
Hard to tell the present from the past,
What was from what is momentarily.
It's not so much about you anymore,
What you are and what you could be,
But only about what you can give. 
That becomes the only true measure
of time.

Neo Batman Superman, Dad

Neo Batman Superman, Dad

I found the red 
And Robin, too.
I'll take the red
And take the blue.

I also found
My kryptonite
Rose from the ground
With my sun's light.

I'll have my cake
And eat it, three
Just have to make
It gluten free.

Be Maccabees

Musical Adaptation by the very talented Stephanie Romay, more information at https://www.facebook.com/ellayelmusic

I wish I could tell you
Everything is ok.
I wish I could say it

I wish I could tell you
Let's just go on our way
No looking, holding back

But I can't.

What I can tell you is
It WILL be ok
Everything's according to
His way.

But that doesn't mean that
There's not a lot to do
To pretend so is simply
Not true.

And I can't.

And yes, life is good,
Yes, G-d is good,
There's so much to thank
And enjoy

You know it's not easy
To be Maccabbees,
At peace while still
At war.

Yet, we can. Yes we can.

Neo Batman Potter Morning

I wake up reciting
Ancient writing
And washing
The scar in
My forehead.
then take a blue pill, 
Cape and belt
Are strapped in
Arm and head
Gear, Tefillin
For Robin
And for red 
I'm still waiting.
