Parsha Poem for V’eschanan



Moshe says twice that it’s really our fault,
He’s forbidden to enter the land,
It’s strange that he lays all the blame upon us,
For this Onesh is from his own hand.

One moment of anger was all that it took,
His patience had served him so well,
But it seems that the blame also falls upon us,
Who drove him so hard that he fell.
