To really appreciate the Torah
a pact between G-d and man
must first respect our neighbor
be generous when we can
Know it is a mistake
to think Torah about G-d
it is about a connection
flowing from above through Yesod
When good deeds surpass wisdom
children and disciples will endure
do not read about medicine
go outside and administer cure
