ΠΡΩΤΟΧΡΟΝΙΑΤΙΚΟ Σαράντα σβέρκοι βωδινοὶ με λαδωμένες μπούκλες σκεμπέδες, σταβροθόλωτοι και βρώμιες ποδαρούκλες ξετσίπωτοι, ακαμάτηδες, τσιμπούρια και κορέοι ντυμένοι στα μαλάματα κ’ επίσημοι κι ωραίοι.
Σαράντα λύκοι με προβιά (γι’ αφτούς βαρά η καμπάνα) καθένας γουρουνόπουλο, καθένας νταμιτζάνα ! Κι απέ ρεβάμενοι βαθιά ξαπλώσανε στο τζάκι, κι αβάσταγες ενιώσανε φαγούρες στο μπατζάκι. Όξ’ ο κοσμάκης φώναζε: «Πεινάμε τέτιες μέρες» γερόντοι και γερόντισσες, παιδάκια και μητέρες κ’ οι των επίγειων αγαθών σφιχτοί νοικοκυρέοι άνοιξαν τα παράθυρα και κράξαν: «Είστε αθέοι».
