One From Two

The 1st of Adar

They declared

Remember all

The things

When shared

A field that’s planted

Crops are mixed

Remember that

It must be fixed!

But there’s another

Item shared

It’s a whole

When it is paired

A shekel coin

Is split into

A half is given

By each Jew

Indeed, there’s one

When there are two!

That sort of mix

Is not kelayim!

It’s mefarseim

K’vod Shomayim

In fact I’ll share

A fact well-known

About these mixtures

Seeds when sown

That years long past

The shekolim given

An evil man

Was madly driven

To wipe the Jews

Right off the map

Don’t worry, King!

Won’t leave a gap!

But Haman’s plan

Did fall apart

Because our shekolim

From the start

Knocked his “talents”

Out of play

And thus

We celebrate today

It’s no joke

So do not laugh

Diminishing

A meager half

Behind the half

That comes from you

There is a second

Holy Jew

And unity…

Is one from two
