A Chocolate Covered Life....

NO vanilla here....
What more can we hope for ...
 in this curious existence of ours ?
Chocolate covered scenarios....
Deeply, Darkly RICH....
filling.....
But missing just that hint of 'high fructose corn syrup'.......:}
And yet.....
We were indeed FREED from Egypt.....from Oppression....
Indeed.....
To the extent that.....(all metaphor aside)...
WE PARTED THE SEA.....
Yes, we did !!
But what awaited us on the other side ?
No pestilence,,,,No vermin,,,,
JUST MATZOH....
flat,,,,dry,,,,pock-marked MATZOH....
And guess what ?
WE LEARNED TO LIKE IT....
because, after all,,,,,
We were free now.....
no more slavery.....
no more bricks and mortar on our frail, sun-burnt shoulders...
QUARANTINED for 40 YEARS .....
Did we bring our Seder plates with us ?
Was JESUS at the meal ?
Were there peanuts back then ?
a swimming pool filled to the brim....
with MILK AND HONEY.....
Toss THIS concept around as you pack up those Passover dishes....
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS>>>>
ARE WE TRULY FREE ??
