King David and King Solomon

I came across this little poem about King David and King Solomon in one of my many reference books – which I thought deserved a wider audience.

King David and King Solomon
Led merry. merry lives,
With many, many lady friends,
And many, many wives;
But when old age crept over them
With many, many qualms
King Solomon wrote the Proverbs
And King David wrote the Psalms.
