Solomon`s Proverbs

Solomon`s Proverbs

They say Solomon was
The wisest man in the world.
He has good advice for you
From years and years before.

He advises to be wary
Of women`s sweet mouths and tongues
And for us to not forget
To apply the rod to the unruly.

He had several palaces besides his
For many sweet mouthed ladies.
Besides the rods laid on his sons
They saw the others laid on his workers.

His wisest thinking taught them
How real men get things done.
His wisest thinking taught them
How to treat sweet mouthed ladies.

The firstborn applied the scorpion
Cat-o-nine tails to his workers
Proving he was wiser than
His father, Solomon the king.

It wasn`t long before
Great Israel was split
With the second oldest brother
Taking most of the twelve tribes.

His followers worshiped in their land
Not in holy Jerusalem.
Brother fought against brother
Not learning from Cain`s folly.

Without a God first heart
The men taught by the wisest man
Couldn`t do any better with themselves first
Than fight amongst each other.

Wise huh?
I`m not doing much better with my sister
And those I`m separated from by six degrees.
Who am I really putting first?

Are those that don`t place God first
while running on the compassion principle
Treating their relatives better
Than I am treating mine?

By myself I don`t operate well
On the compassion principle.
I need the invisible necessity
To begin to follow Solomon`s proverbs.
