30. The Foolish People Run Away
They were sitting about.
From right there, soldiers on horseback came to them.
They started to run away.
It was a plain.
There were small hills here and there.
Between were flat places.
They were running over these points of land.
Then, right behind them, the soldiers were running on horseback.
Then the [Foolish People] were running ahead of them.
The soldiers' horses becoming tired, the [Foolish People] ran out of their reach1
Whatever their faults and stupidity, the Foolish People are always represented as being swift
runners, able to outdistance an antelope or a horse.
