01/15/20 Grif.Net – Lamentations of the Father (part 3)

[For the my =
children and grandchildren, here is the final installment of =
"loosely translated” passages from =
Leviticus]

 

**CONCERNING =
FACE AND HANDS

  &nb=
sp;  Cast your countenance upward to the light and lift up your =
eyes to the hills, that I may more easily wash you off.  For the =
stains are upon you, even unto the very back of your head, there is rice =
thereon.  And in your breast pocket of your garment and upon the =
tie of your shoe there is rice and other fragments, distributed in a =
manner wonderful to see.  Only hold  yourself still, hold =
still, I say!  Give each finger in its turn for my examination =
thereof and also each thumb.  Lo!  How iniquitous they =
appear!  What I do is as it must be, and you shall not go hence =
until I have done.

 

**VARIOUS =
OTHER LAWS, STATUTES AND ORDINANCES

  &nb=
sp;  Bite not, lest you be cast into quiet time.  Neither =
drink of your own bathwater, nor of bathwater of any kind, nor rub your =
feet on bread, even if it be in the package.  Neither rub yourself =
against cars, nor against any building.  Nor eat sand. =

  &nb=
sp;  Leave the cat alone.  For what has the cat done that =
you should so afflict it with tape?

  &nb=
sp;  And hum not that humming in your nose as I read, nor stand =
between the light and the book; indeed, you will drive me to =
madness.  Nor forget what I said about the =
tape.

 

**COMPLAINTS =
AND LAMENTATIONS

  &nb=
sp;  Oh, my children, you are disobedient.  For when I tell =
you what you must do you argue and dispute hotly even to the littlest =
detail and when I do not accede you cry out and hit and kick, yes, and =
even sometimes do you spit and shout ‘stupidhead’ and other =
blasphemies.  And hit and kick the wall and the molding thereof =
when you are sent to the corner.

  &nb=
sp;  And although the law teaches that no one shall be sent to =
the corner for more minutes than he has years of age, yet I would leave =
you there all day, so mighty am I in anger.  But upon being sent to =
the corner you ask straight-away, ‘Can I come out?’ and I =
reply, ‘No, you may not come out.’  And again you ask =
and again I give the same reply.  But when you ask again a third =
time, and I reply, ‘Oh, all right,’ then you may come =
out.

  &nb=
sp;  And you shall remember that I am your father before, after and =
until you are twenty-one.  Hear me then, and avoid me in my wrath, =
oh children of My loins.
