it happens
a goat eats
up a wolf
the appetite
comes during eating
I’d like to drink honey
with your lips
trouble never comes
alone without rest
even the horse doesn’t
gallop without effort
you can’t pull a fish
out of the pond
the belly is full
the eyes are hungry
teeth are all friends
among each other
no truth in feet
feet feed the wolf
