Not an awesome day. Tajnis.

Moshe ibn Ezra (1060? – 1140?)
If Time Should Make Merry

If Time should make merry or dance with you
  Don’t dare to believe him — he’s fooled you!
He’s only a net for men’s hearts, and won’t leave you
  ’Til he brings forth the maggots within you.

משה אבן עזרא / موسى ابن عزرا
אם הזמן יצחק לך

 
אִם הַזְּמָן יִצְחַק לָךְ, אַל תְּהִי מַאְמִין,
 אוֹ אִם יְהִי רוֹקֵד – כִּי אוֹתְךָ רִמָּה!
רֶשֶׁת לְבָבוֹת הוּא עִמָּךְ, וְלֹא יִרְגַּע
 עַד כִּי יְהִי מֵשִׁיב אֶת גּוּפְךָ רִמָּה.
י

Transliteration/תעתיק:

‘Im ha-zemán yitzḥák lakh, ‘al tehí ma’amín, / ‘o ‘im yehí rokéid — ki ‘otkhá rimáh!
Réshet levavót hu ʕimákh, ve-ló yirgáʕ / ʕad ki yehí meishív ‘et gufkhá rimáh.
