Maybe a Bialik....

Mirrer Yeshiva, 1930's

To help the downtrodden
whom many have forgotten

Azah shayneh mayseh
procurement of a "shmaytsa"
kindle the rischa d'oraysa

Ven a yid zitst uhn lerent uhn zayn hartz vert farbrent
Uhn ehr batracht zich in dem in der Dvar Hashem

Mir darfen nisht gleiben az ehr iz geven der "Ge'an HaG'eynim"

Der vus iz geven tzu zehn di gantza bren

Vee ehr hot gezugt Teyre mit a teefereh havoneh a bechinah fuhn aish sh'chayroh al gaby levonoh

A member of the "Bund"
didn't know a kutzo shel yud

Saw a 'mar'eh' that was awseome
a shiur that was thundersome

Was brought to tears
over all those lost years

Ah shod af di tzeyt
and with all of his might
learned through the night

When the night was gone
his neshamah moved on
and he was gone

( - by Maybe a Litvak, 2009)

Fat chance! Maybe if Maybe can find out who the Ketzos Hashulchan was, he can write a poem about him as well...

Maybe keeps it right next to his set of the Graz's Shulchan Aruch

When was the last time you opened if, if ever? Chaval

Bialik learned for one zeman in Volozhin, learned through most of Kesuvos with Tosafos.

I do not understand some of the transliterations are echte Litvishe and other transliterated words are echte galitzianer-Hungarische.
Whats this ?
Maybe a Litvak maybe not ?

Maybe if MAL didn't keep coming accross as such a brainwashed creep, people could take him a bit seriously. Maybe invest in a pair of bi-focals.... even if your self-proclaimed 'gaon hador' couldn't manage it.

"even if your self-proclaimed 'gaon hador' couldn't manage it."

When did the Gaon Hador say he was the Gaon Hador?
