Sir: Geoffrey Hinton (Letters, 3 August) moves your correspondence about King David from his circumcision to his clothing. Could I move it further, to his morals, by quoting the verse I was taught in Sunday School:
King David and King Solomon
Lived very naughty lives,
Enjoyed themselves exceedingly
With other people's wives.
But when old age came creeping on
And conscience gave them qualms
King Solomon wrote the Proverbs
And King David wrote the Psalms.
