Prodigal Jedidiah

King Solomon was given a blank check:
  “Ask Me whatever you would most desire.”
The Lord Almighty offered him the stars,
  The sun and moon thrown in. But something higher
Stirred his requesting. Not mere gold mine wealth,
  An extra hundred birthdays, enemies
Annihilated. Just one modest wish –
  A heart with ears: the know-how to best please
God’s justice in the soul-governing realm.
  But two short decades, heaven’s wisdom spent
In dogged pursuit of appetites fulfilled,
  Senselessly genius willed sensations’ bent.
        The moral one is solemn to express?
        In retrospect, best ask for sinlessness.
