The one whose name is yours seduced a king

Spent a year in harem, perfumed daily

Clever virgin asked what pleasured Xerxes

One night, her informed delights made her Queen

Her uncle Mordecai kept faith nearby,

toiled in low office, saved the Regents life

When an ancient enemy reappears

says she must reveal she is a jewish wife,

undo death decrees, avert her people’s slaughter

To see the  king unbidden would be death

“Through feast, by wiles, I’ll avert disaster.

Fast, pray 3 days, I’ll prove my people’s daughter”

As with you by wit, by will, delivered

Though unnamed, God’s saving grace is rendered
