Give a saying Of the ancestors
The hare being small spoke first with a glance at the lion he affirmed that no matter how tiny the needle; the chicken cannot swallow it the lion sniffed and tossed his mane in affirmation.
The ant looked at the elephant and said, ‘If we enter through your southern gate we can stop you and make you stampede in pain’
Then the tortoise was asked to give a saying from the Elders he scratched his pate and looked down in shame the vulture cackled ‘Stupid as usual’
the tortoise walked the earth from east to west picking all the wisdom he could find, into a calabash gourd to shame all and one.
He searched for the tallest tree determined to hang all  wisdom  out of reach he held the gourd firmly to his chest, as he tried to climb the tallest tree.
The squirrel passing by stopped and wondered "but why don’t you sling the gourd  on your back to make it easy to climb?
As tortoise stared in shock the squirrel rushed up the tree as he muttered and shook his tail ‘stupid as usual’
