Echimosis is a bruise,


And Iky Moses the king of the Jews.


Iky is the miniature of my name


And chanting it to me was a puerile game.


That is why, to tell the truth,


I was known as Kappy throughout my youth.


But, what in the Diaspora Iky meant,


No longer applied when to Israel I went.


So I reverted to my original name,


And, from then on, Isaac I became.


And, although it is spelled in many a way,


It has remained so until this day.
