Ramadan
Benjamin Franklin

Where carcasses are, eagles will gather; where good Laws are, much people flock thither.

Ramadan
Benjamin Franklin

From a cross neighbour, and a sullen wife,
A pointless needle, and a broken knife;
From suretyship, and from an empty purse,
A smoaky chimney, and jolting horse;
From a dull razor, and an aking head;
From a bad conscience, and a buggy bed,
A blow upon the elbow and the knee;
From each of these, good Lord, deliver me.
