Kugel by Carol Young

so I tried to explain making kugel
to my 91 year old mom
what new year?
why don’t you work tomorrow?
Oy still she wanted to try it
a good recipe crosses all barriers
kugel in German means bullet
sometimes my relatives
really know how to take the fun
out of something good
Carol kugel has no dairy
well except for a ton of butter
but the french part of me says
well butter there must be mais oui
the sermon today was about
the miracle of Jesus opening
a deaf guy’s ears
I hope someone opens mine
but with sweet kugel
and not a bullet
