In old Shushan, there lived a fool,
Ahashverosh. Beneath his rule
Haman the evil enemy
Proclaimed a murderous decree
If not for Esther's clever ruse
They would have slaughtered all the Jews.
In our time, corporate idiots
Have built a lot of mindless bots.
These fools can find still greater fools
Who marvel at these bungling tools,
And pow'rful people so unwise
They put their trust in these AIs.
The tale of Haman's evil plot
And his demise is surely not
Irrelevant or obsolete.
It's still important to defeat
Any untrustworthy tool
That's given power by a fool.
