Beware The Begrudging Host
Do not eat the food of a begrudging host,
do not crave his delicacies;
for he is the kind of person
who is always thinking about the cost.
“Eat and drink,” he says to you,
but his heart is not with you.
You will vomit up the little you have eaten
and will have wasted your compliments.
Do not waste your time with the stingy.
They portend to be generous, but they are disingenuous.
