By Dr. Harry Hamburger

Can choose heads or tails

only one side can win

battle that goes on forever

between what's holy and sin


Pick up coin with fingers

and then spin it around

faces will become a circle

then unity can be found


Both sides

by Dr. Harry Hamburger


Two fought in the womb

one rough and one kind

cannot have unity of faith

unless two halves we find


Must join in our mind

to create one Holy Name

only then can we learn

of source where both came


Do not go into battle

holding Chesed in your hand

must also dispense strict justice

to survive in the Land


A hunter and a teacher

must both learn to be

bring both of them together

then truly holy can be
