Ma'aseh Be-Rabbi Eliezer...

Once Rabbi Akiva
         and some of his friends
talked all night and forgot
         that the seder should end.
All the mice started snoring,
         they found it so boring.
The hoot-owls were hooting,
         the shooting-stars shooting--
But Rabbi Akiva
         kept talking away
till his pupils said, "Rabbi,
         it's not yesterday!
You act like the Drush-Drush
         who sleeps while it's light,
and talks of the Exodus
         all through the night!"
