The Wolf and the Dog.jpg

A New Poem by Dr. Harry Hamburger


There once was a wolf
walking walking down forest trail
he saw a beautiful dog
and told a pitiful tale


"I am skinny and hungry
and have nothing to eat
finding food in the winter
is quite a difficult feat"


The dog was so friendly
said, "Come to my home,
for warm place and food,
will not have to roam"

The wolf noticed the collar
wrapped round the dog's neck
"Master likes to use it
to keep me in check"

The wolf said, "No thanks"
walked back down the trail
"Will not lose my freedom
for food in a pail"
What will you trade Hashem and your freedom for?
A Jew is only truly free when the only Master is Hashem, and his yoke the Torah!
