You’re not that righteous, said the Rabbis.
In another generation, you’d be average –
Just look at Abraham
Father of the Jewish people,
Light unto the nations.
Now that’s a righteous man!
As always, Noah nodded, but thought
To himself, But have you ever tried
To keep a yahrzeit candle,
Faintest flicker of a single flame
Alive in the flood?
