My friend, the artist Jonathan Franklin, wrote this funny, bluesy rap song for his family seder, based on the surprising fact that the key figure in the Exodus story, Moses, is barely mentioned in the Haggadah. I love the way the Rabbis, by leaving Moses out of the story, chose to emphasize that it was not a human being, but the Almighty Himself, who redeemed the Israelites. The tapestry is based on musical notation: each line has four quarter notes, and each one is divided into a triplet. When the dark brown middle note in the triplet, symbolizing Moses, is skipped, we get the rhythm of the song. In other words, Moses is the missing beat.
