Proverb Monday

Proverb: Wohunu ananse a, ku no, anyε saa a, ɔbεdane ɔkyεmfo a bεka wo
Translation: When you see a spider, kill it; if not it will change into a bird-spider and bite you.
Usage: The bird-spider has a poisonous bite. A warning in a situation when one is suspected of being an enemy but has not yet shown oneself up. Don't deal with those you don't trust.
No. 2817 in Bu me Bε by Peggy Appiah et al.
