yom kippur for hyenas...

the hyenas, the JEWISH hyenas,
 sit very properly in the front row....
of the animal chapel...
trying so hard not to laugh !
for that is their organic inclination....
to laugh themselves into a stupor....
however, it is ATONEMENT DAY.....
no laughing is permitted....

Mrs hyena is wearing her ivory colored finery....
her hat...
her pearls....
and YES !!
her CONVERSE !!!
she sits in deep contemplation....
muffling her urge to LAUGH....
keeping the hyena children in line...

Mr hyena is seated downstairs.....
(they are ORTHODOX!)
he gazes up at his family, controlling his own extreme urges.....
to laugh !!
a snort pops out of his snout,
 regardless of decorum.....
his 2 sons, seated on his right, regale with laughter !!!
spitting and wheezing into the air,
to his extreme chagrin and embarrassment....

they sit,
'en famille',
 and ponder THE MEANING OF LIFE....
they beg forgiveness....
they make promises....
they watch the clock.....
hunger pangs are distinctly gurgling within their hyena bellies.....

there is nothing quite as 'distressing' and utterly 'revolting'....
as the breath of a FASTING HYENA......
