When the country is on the way

  when
the country
is
on
the way
race horses
are sent
to fill
the fields
with their droppings
  when
the country
loses
its way
war horses
gobble up
hay
on the border
no
calamity
matches
wanting
too much
no
crime
exceeds
being
discontent
no
misfortune
is worse
than aching
for more
be
content
with
enough
then you will
keep on
having
enough
