This was a tie between myself and Jon Boehnker. I nearly disqualified
myself as this was really an old anagram of mine (pre-Anagrammy, I
think). So, it was not fair to allow it to win. Jon's anagram was very
apt and a deserved winner.

Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day
of the first month, and there was written according to all
that Haman had commanded unto the king's lieutenants, and
to the governors that were over every province, and to the
rulers of every people of every province according to the
writing thereof, and to every people after their language;
in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed
with the king's ring.
A day short of two weeks into Nisan, the husband of Vashti
gave silver unto a cruel Agagite who wanted to kill every
man, woman, and child of Mordecai's people on the thirteenth
of Adar. So then the charming, pretty Esther, a poor, free
teenage virgin who gained acceptance in the royal courts,
ventured to flirt with the king, who then, preferring to
trust her, reversed the sentence, arresting and even killing
the demented tyrant.
