A Little Gallows Humor


Mesch-030912

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.

What does the way we count the days of Chanukah come to teach us about living in the present?

Knesset and Menorah

Israel projects global material illumination not always the light of “morality” meant by the Navi

Parsha-Perspective-Logo-NEW

To many of our brethren Chanukah has lost its meaning.

This ability to remain calm under pressure and continue to see the situation clearly is a hallmark of Yehuda’s leadership.

It would have been understandable for these great warriors to become dispirited.

The travail of Yosef was undoubtedly the greatest trauma of Yaakov’s life, which certainly knew its share of hardships.

Yosef, in interpreting the first set of dreams, performed in a manner that was clearly miraculous to all.

Chazal teach us that we need to be “sur may’rah v’asei tov,”avoid bad and do good.

When we celebrate the completion of learning a section of Torah, we recite the Hadran.

Fetal Immersion?
‘The Fetus Is A Limb Of Its Mother’
(Yevamos 78a)

Yosef proves he is a true leader; He is continually and fully engaged in the task of running Egypt

When the inability cannot be clearly attributed to either spouse, the halacha is the subject of debate among the Rishonim.

Those who reject our beliefs know in their souls Jewish power stems from our faith and our prayers.

He stepped outside, and, to his dismay, the menorah was missing. It had been stolen.

Though we Jews have deep obligations to all people our obligation to our fellow Jew is unique.

In a way that decision was the first in a series of miracles with which Hashem blessed us.
