In Germany there is a move To outlaw circumcision.
I take to verse to summarize
This outrage with concision.
The WHO recommendsThat no male miss a bris
The snip that saves, WHO raves
Does not diminish bliss.
Far from disfigurement, it isA sacred, ancient rite.
A covenant crossing untold ages
Father Abraham's requite.
And yet, today, in Germany --the ironies abound--
This Jewish practice meets a sanction
Where once indeed was found
Many who were circumcisedAnd versed in Jewish lore.
Perhaps the Germans have forgottenFor they are there no more.
