Melting Pot

For a morning treat
she brings bagels and cream cheese
for all to enjoy

There was a time when
the bagel bakeries closed
during Passover

Bagels are common,
detatched from their ethnic roots
They've morphed and mainstreamed

Still, it don't seem right
to this non-observant Jew
None for me, thank you

Our bagel bakery is closed during Passover. They are very Orthodox. I love that they don't cave into commercialism - even if it does mean no bagels on Saturday.
