Dovi's Poem

Dovi Holtz used to be our main technician at Israel National Radio. I havn't seen him since he left to become a rabbi. Last week he surprised me by text messaging me this poem and insisting that I publicize it so that he can "become rich and famous."

Once a cow went down the road
Where it met a royal toad
Said the toad to the cow
When you see me you must bow
Said the cow, that I can't
And she crushed him like an ant

The moral of this poem: Royal toads should stay at home.
