The Members of the Body rebelled against the Belly, and said,
"Why should we be perpetually engaged in administering to
your wants, while you do nothing but take your rest, and enjoy
yourself in luxury and self-indulgence?" The Members carried
out their resolve and refused their assistance to the Belly.
The whole Body quickly became debilitated, and the hands,
feet, mouth, and eyes, when too late, repented of their folly.
(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
