The Proverb Poem (Poem 22 NaPoWriMo)

Dare not to look above,
when the clouds rise high
all grey and torn,
For a Zucchini bite glare,
may turn into death,

Did you harm a living once?
Here you are,
Tit for Tat
My son.

Lots of pride you hold inside,
If sweetness is excessive,
it is no longer sweet,

Bow down
to the mother earth,
Before the devil
puts his shoes on.


a Zucchini bite- short period of time
(Original proverb: عضة كوساية –
Arabic proverb)

If sweetness is excessive, it is no longer sweet. – Overdoing something is not good
(Original proverb:
Tamu ikizidi tamu, si tamu tena – Sawahilli proverb)

Before the devil puts his shoes on. – Early in the morning
(Original proverb: 
før fanden får sko på – Danish proverb)
