Kosher Bagels

Kosher Bagels

“Do you have whole wheat bagels today?”
“Yes! Yes! We do.
We came through for you today.”
“Then I’ll have it with hummus.”
“Oh God, we don’t have that dressing today.
Sorry to let you down.”
“Then I’ll have it with butter.”
“Lord, we are never out of butter
Except for today. We must be hexed.”
“Then do you have any suggestions?”
“Personally I like the spinach and artichoke
With cream cheese.
It has the taste of lox and bagels
That I grew up on in New York.”
 “I trust your judgment.”
“Based on what?”
“Your choice in clothing is impeccable.”
“Can’t go wrong with spandex.”

“I am at a loss not having partaken
Of your cooking.”
“Let me rephrase that.

“Yes, your dining choice matches mine.”
“I can make a mean matzah ball soup.”
“I can make a beastly jambalaya.”
“But can you curse in Yiddish?”
“No, but I prefer kosher food to profanity.”
