A man toiled on a burning road

 A man toiled on a burning road,
Never resting.
Once he saw a fat, stupid ass Grinning at him from a green place.
The man cried out in rage, "Ah! Do not deride me, fool! I know you -- All day stuffing your belly, Burying your heart In grass and tender sprouts: It will not suffice you.
" But the ass only grinned at him from the green place.
