Ecclesiastes Nth Degree Poem

Solemn Solomon

Wealthy, overly-married
philosopher king,
supposed author
or at least patron
of Ecclesiastes:
Why were you
never satisfied?
Why did you
view all pursuits
purposeless?
Full of regrets,
obsessed with death,
you sound cynical.

Did your boredom
ruin the kingdom?

Anyway, milennia later
this rare joy ray
offers some solace:
God made everything
beautiful in its time
and set eternity
in the human heart.
