A Pioneer of Feminism (Esther 1:9-22)

When the beautiful Queen Vashti
(Is there a not-beautiful queen?…)
was giving a banquet for noble women and
was enjoying gossip of the palace,
(Women are women….both then and now…)
The sloshed King Xerxes,
Trying to show off the beauty of Queen Vashti to his nobles,
(Men are men…both then and now…)
summons Vashti to his banquet.
Then, see what happened!
The queen was supposed to run like a 100-meter Olympian
to the King in the most fancy garment.
But Vashti refused to come!
(Is this a true story?…)
If a rumor that the Queen disobeyed the King comes out,
all women would disdain their husband.
This judgment striped the Queenship from Vashti, but
it wouldn’t be surprise since pioneers are usually sacrificed.
No matter how glamorous the life in palace is,
She would rather live free as a country woman
than live as one of ornaments of her King husband.
(Nobody knows what happened to her after…)
This genuine feminism has been evolved…
Now men have become ornaments of women…
Would Vashti be pleased?
