If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.
The woman named Folly is loud and brash. She is ignorant and doesn't even know it.
She sits in her doorway on the heights overlooking the city.
She calls out to men going by who are minding their own business.
"Come home with me," she urges the simple. To those without good judgment, she says,
"Stolen water is refreshing; food eaten in secret tastes the best!"
But the men don't realize that her former guests are now in the grave. a
