Never say ‘Rabbi’ on a boat.

If you want

your plans

to stay afloat,

never say Rabbi

when upon a boat.


“Why?” you ask.

“Well…” I reply,

“It’s unlucky,

though I’m not sure why.

Maybe it’s because

if there is a Rabbi upon the craft

he’ll look at you

and think you’re daft;

and he might then throw you overboard

to swim with the fishes.

to meet your Lord

to wash

the final dishes.
