in the dark.
Kitty wanted to light one.
I didn’t have a match
or a candle.
And so, we paused for a moment,
despite the many
Pointing at the mosaics,
We contemplated the tall candle,
standing above all the others
who might have placed it there –
was this an attempt to gain special consideration?
Look at me!
I deserve salvation more than those other guys who could only bother to spend half a grush* on their lights;
A little like the folk buried
on the Mount of Olives
that the Messiah,
will follow a plan,
First stopping there before reaching the Holy City.
thanks to their diligence
Will return to life before the others,
Be first in line
*Grush = 10 mils; 1,000 mils = one Palestine pound during the British Mandate.
