Chicken and Egg
In Hebrew they say Oaf for “chicken,”
And Oeuf is the French word for “egg.”
I know you may think I am kiddin’,
But no, I’m not pullin’ your leg.
And that makes me think of a riddle,
A conundrum to vex the Ein-Sof*.
Though they both might end up on a griddle,
Which one came first: the Oeuf or the Oaf?
*Ein-Sof (“Without End”) is one of many Hebrew expressions used to refer to the Eternal One.
