Postcards from Passover: When We Use the Word Freedom (Day 5)

What do we mean when we use the word freedom? For the fifth day of Passover, a celebration of the many Haggadah possibilities with a picture — and a poem:

What is the Jewish story
The abbreviated assimilated
Refresher course version
The story people want to hear
On Passover? The word means
telling, as in Tell Your Children This.
What should we tell them? What is
Exodus and what is Slavery
and what do we mean when we
use the word Freedom?
