Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes

There's nothing like the Days of Awe to stir up the love memories.
Which is another way of saying, the love mishaps.
So is it my fault that as soon as Rosh Hashannah let out, I found myself emailing two gentlemen from my immediate past who, according to my watch, both owed me some serious apologies?
