Old Solomon, he was a king
Who did possess most everything
He was the wisest of all men
None would e’er be alike again.
His instructions came from above
Conerning God and His great love
For forty years he ruled replete
His job, God’s Temple to complete.
This task achieved in seven years
And lauded by both prayer and tears
Oh sad end for King David’s son
He’d lost his way and was undone !
