Through downtown Shushan publicly so he can fully savour it
This groom must bellow mightily, here passes a true Hero!
The King has glorified this man, compared to him I’m Zero.
No sooner had he shut his yap than Haman did regret it.
For the King commanded, Mordechai the Jew deserves the credit.
So garb him just as you described and have the horse bedighted
And you, my noble minister, will lead him as you cited
Now Haman turned a purple hue, (the man was way too portly)
He thought he’d have a heart attack, he’d been assaulted mortly
But so it was and thus it went, the Jew was elevated
By Haman, the Amalekite, who fumed as they paraded.
The duo passed The Hamans’ Pied A Terre, and at the casement
One of his graceless daughters with her slops paused in amazement
And thinking Haman was bestride, the Jew with reins in hand
She aimed her pail right o’er the rail upon the Jew to land
And fouled instead her father’s head, he reeled and staggered madly
His clothes were drenched, his ego crushed, he needed to bathe, badly
And later as he chug-a-lugged a potent pick-me-upper,
The Palace sent for Haman to come join the Queen for supper.
The King, in Spirits high again, told Esther, his beloved
Your wish is my command, my Queen, and dearer than my kovod
Whatever is your heart’s desire I’ll grant for now and ever
And Esther answered, shockingly, Please save me from the kever
A Wicked Man has paid a sum in order just to butcher
The nation that Amalek hates and never ceased to mutcher
The King was roused to anger and he asked in towering rage
What Varlet dares to harm my Queen, and who has set the stage
Ups Esther loud and bell-like clear: its Haman who’s my foe.
He hates my Mordechai because he’s not a shmoe
He sold us all to be filleted, the man has no compassion.
The King, outraged went out, in tipsy fashion
Then Haman left alone with her, did beg Queen Esther’s pardon
His timing most unfortunate, as just then from the garden
His Majesty returned to find His minister collapsing
Upon the couch where Esther lay, she wasn’t really napsing
That really tore it: Haman was in hot water
He’d torment Jews no longer, thanks to Mama Rachel’s daughter.
Now, Haman’s end was not enough to save the Jews of Shushan
An edict had been signed to law, and read out in each lashan
So Melech A. gave Mordechai executive permission
To write and seal another writ, an Up To Date Edition
Allowing Jews to save themselves, to plan and mount defenses
Against those bent on killing them. They later took a census:
In Shushan many hundreds died attacking local Yiddin
And in addition Haman’s sons, all ten of them, no kiddin
So on Yud Daled Adar and in certain places later
Each year we hear this story read of Haman the Yiddin Hater
His Majesty Achashvairosh King of Kush
And continental Hodoo gave Mordechai rechush
And made him his lieutenant, his second in command
And there was peace and plenty for the Jews in all the land….
And we see whatever happens in this world somehow affects us
But wherever in the world we are we know Hashem protects us.
