Passover Haiku

I did not write these, but felt that they were prudent given the impending Pesach.

Lacking fins or tail
The gefilte fish swims with
Great difficulty.

On Passover we
Opened door for Elijah
Now our cat is gone.

Her lips near my ear,
Aunt Sadie whispers the name
Of her friend's disease.

Today I'm a man.
Tomorrow I will return
To the seventh grade.

A lovely tattoo,
Excuse me while I put my
Head in the oven.
