The Chorus
Ecclesiastes ch8 vv2-5, ch10 v20

Do what the king says.
The king can do anything he likes, so depart from his presence; don't stay in such a dangerous place.
Do what the king says.
The king acts with authority, and no one can challenge what he does.
As long as you obey his commands, you are safe, and a wise person knows how and when to do it.
Do what the king says.
Don't criticize the king, even silently, even in the privacy of your bedroom, and don't criticize the rich.
A bird might carry the message and tell them what you said.
Do what the king says.
