A Dudele

Today they played “A Dudele” – a song,
On 96.3, melancholy, longing, Jewish, glum,
It brought up so many memories, childhood,
Mother and father, family, warmth all that is good,
There is a sense of sorrow, melancholy and pain,
In all traditional Jewish music, feels like cutting a vein,
We celebrate sorrow, misery and depression,
Jewish prayer is an argument with God, we question,
We demand answers we want explanations,
Between him and us, it is a funny sort of relations,
Even Lot was haggling with God re Sodom and Gomorra,
It says so in the good book, just read the Torah,
We never let the poor guy win we are a stubborn nation,
It is a fact we have been doing it since creation
