My little spot illustrations for the old Aramaic song that ends the Passover dinner. Had Gadya – Little Kid (as in baby goat) – is an ancient, ever so slightly more morbid version of the lady who swallowed the fly. Its all about the circle of life and the power of God. Happy Passover!
p.s. zuzim is some form of currency
Little Kid, little kid. Our father bought a kid for 2 zuzim.
Little kid little kid
Came the cat and ate the kid. Came the dog and bit the cat
came the stick and hit the dog. Came the fire and burned the stick
Came the water and put out the fire. Came the ox and drank the water
Came the butcher and slaughtered the ox.
Came the angel of death and slaughtered the butcher
Came God and destroyed the angel of death who slaughtered the butcher,
who slaughtered the ox, who drank the water, which put out the fire,
which burned the stick, which hit the dog, who bit the cat, who ate the kid
Little kid, little kid, that our father bought for 2 zuzim. Little kid, little kid
