I am Mordechai a very good Jew,
You know me and love me and I love you.
I am a descendant of the Great King Saul,
I made wicked Haman cringe and crawl.
I uncovered the traitors Bigtan and Teresh,
I defied Haman and his wicked wife Zeresh.
I rode on a horse, with a crown on my head!
And hanged wicked Haman and his sons in my stead.
So the Jews of Shushan and lands one twenty seven
Were happy and thankful to our Father in Heaven.
And now, as then, until the sun grows cold
We celebrate Purim with gladness untold.

Mordechai was a great man and he also stoped Haman and his wife. He also rode on a horse withn a crown on his head. Also Esther was his niece she was the queen and she could not tell that she was jewish. Also Mordechai did not bow down to Haman. He also told Esther to tell the king what Haman was going to do to all the jews.
