The King
Ecclesiastes ch2 vv4-8

I accomplish great things.
I build myself houses and plant vineyards.
I plant gardens and orchards, with all kinds of fruit-trees in them;
I dig ponds to irrigate them.
I buy many slaves, and there are slaves born in my household.
I own more livestock than anyone else who has ever lived in Jerusalem.
I also pile up silver and gold from the royal treasuries of the lands I rule.
Men and women sing to entertain me, and I have all the women a man could want.
