Too Salty - Poem by gershon hepner
Too salty is another’s bread,
and hard to climb another’s stairs,
but he who is alone ahead
will somersault, and fall from chairs.
Inspired by lines from Dante’s Divina Commedia, Inferno, Canto XVII 58-60:
Tu proverai sì come sa di sale
lo pane altrui, e come è duro calle
lo scendere e 'l salir per l'altrui scale.
You shall prove how salt is the taste of anotehr’s bread and how hard is the way up and down another man’s stairs.
