  why
do
people
starve?
their rulers
eat up
their grain
in taxes
  why
are
the people
hard
to manage?
because
their rulers
are
busy
bodies.
why
do
the people
scoff
at death?
because
their rulers
enjoy
life
too much
driven
and pinched,
the people
scorn
the way
their rulers
live,
wiser
than those
who
stuff
themselves
with
pleasures
