2255. Torah, Torah, Torah!

The opening book is called Genesis
On its heels you'll encounter the Exodus
Read Leviticus' laws
And then Numbers gives pause

Hark to wise Deuteronomy's second fuss.
(Deuteronomy means "second law" and recapitulates much of books 2 & 3.)

I sent that one to my 85-yr-old Jewish friend, Zelda.  She replied,
An acrostic that's based on the Pentateuch
Might make one return for another look.
        But it's so full of "Don't!"
        That maybe I won't.
I might find more joy in another book.
