Billy Ray Sheet's "The Ballad of Purim" Chapters 1 & 2

While the abuse of power comes as no surprise, neither does the abuse of those in power. Here is the inimitable Billy Ray Sheet, with a Purim Shpeil in four parts that tells the story of Purim while gently poking fun at our current leaders.

A merry retelling of the Purim story (Book of Esther), combining ancient Persia, the White House, and the planet Naboo (Star Wars), and putting them all into a Beverly Hillbillies envelope.

Here's part 1, covering chapters 1 and 2. I'll post the other 3 sections in following posts. Stay tuned!
