And so they haggled in front of the King, until he called for silence.
"Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon,

Each of you shall receive a half."
"Sounds good to me," said the first lady.
But the other woman said,
"Oh Sir, do not spill innocent blood.

The wise king did not hesitate a moment.
"This man must marry the first lady's daughter," he proclaimed.
"But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's court.
"Indeed," said wise King Solomon.
"That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law!"
