Tisha B'Av Haikus

A day of mourning
The Beis HaMikdash destroyed
Cry for the Temple.

No food/drink today
We sit on stools, canvas shoes
Affliction, each year.

Ad Mosai, we say -
Until when, Moshiach comes?
Forever we wait.

Together, we Jews
Must rise up and sing to G-d
Pray, hope,
acknowledge.

Teshuva, repent
Return to our Jewish ways
Moshiach arrives!
