Happy Purim! May this be a year when all the Hamens of the world are vanquished.

This tale, was once told
In the days of Achashverosh
This one needs a new girl
Needs a good girl
A straight masterpiece!
So file in
Try to win
Be the queen of my cities
Well hold on, this girl’s the one!
That’s Esther, oh she’s so pretty!
