Intro to A Little Zetz - recited

Men have their habits and women their traits Which help determine the course of their fates. Even the gods do adhere to these rules And, just like mortals, act often like fools. Setting the stage, we will see we’ve been led To Morty and Ceil, over 40 years wed; While up on Olympus, both Hera and Zeus Are seeing what mischief a zetz can produce. If zetz is a word which you’ve not heard before, It’s Yiddish and so it has meanings galore. Consider a zetz like a jab or a poke In a physical way or in words someone spoke. Let’s eavesdrop on Morty and lovely wife Ceil And see how a little zetz alters their meal… (this is the narrator's introduction to a play i wrote - entirely in rhyme - which was part of the strawberry one-act festival in new york city, performed on march 2, 2013. the link below will take you to the entire 16 minute play on youtube)

Wish I had time for more of your rhyme, but an hour is all that I get. I'd love to go see your 16 min. reverie. But for now, I simply regret..:) Awsome, btw.

How nice, Ilene. Wish I could stay and view the play. But I am rushing to make dinner soon. Have you written for many other plays?
