Towards Solomon's Mountain

Without Solomon every bird is a bat in love with darkness. Listen, oh mischievous bat, try to become his friend. Do you want to stay in your cave forever? If you go even three feet towards Solomon's mountain, others will use that as a yardstick to measure their lives. Suppose your leg is gimpy, and you have to hop, what's the difference? Going toward Solomon, even by limping, the leg grows whole.
