Mazel Tov



A Jewish attorney, Raskolnikov,
his Buddhist half-brother, Kaletnikov,
now here comes the bother,
they mimic each other,
so who gets 'good health!' or a 'mazel tov?'

    Keith, a deep and strong view for a limerick,,,Stopping by with a special greeting, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    All this time I thought the last part was a play on the word. But that is actually its spelling!!! Good grief! I had never seen it written out before!

    Half of the Buddhist, which would be fine because of the balance thing, and none of the Jewish attorney, because of his profession? .......jokes!, I love it keith, good words man.

    I don't know much about the Jews, but this sure has a cute ring to it!!

    What does the expression you are doing the word play on mean anyway? "good health?"
