A recent CMS change introduced visual CSS glitches. Please bear with me as I hunt them down.

Were I King Ahasuerus
    Then never would I see
        A Haman full of hate.
        My kingdom's Jews, their fate,
    Would never safer be—
Were I King Ahasuerus.

Were I King Ahasuerus No outside threat would scare us. With Mordecai at hand, The wisest in the land, We'd have him to prepare us— Were I King Ahasuerus.

Were I King Ahasuerus I'd toss out old Vashti With bigger dreams than britches. What's with these ancient bitches? A diff'rent wife for me— Were I King Ahasuerus.

Were I King Ahasuerus To fortune I could bear us. One people, marked forever: A Jewish race, together. To this compact I'd swear us— Were I King Ahasuerus.
