Purim Poem 2012

A crazy Persian madman,
An ineffective king,
A leader of Jews who understands
We must survive this thing.

Sounds like Esther’s story
Has leaked into our time.
No longer just a scroll we read,
Its meaning quite sublime.

But who plays the part of Esther,
The lady of the hour?
Who can sway the people now?
Who has that kind of power?

We look about our stage,
And cannot find an actor.
We need to find our princess fast,
Before they build a nuclear reactor.

Suddenly our answer comes,
It couldn’t be much clearer.
We will find our Esther inside
Each and every mirror!

Happy Purim!
