Proverb Monday, #37

Proverb: Kooko kyεre pata so a, εgyae hene yε.
Meaning: If the riverside cocoyam is kept in the roof beam for a long time, it loses its ability to make you itch.
Root & Context: The fresh skin of the cocoyam causes skin irritation, but after a period it becomes harmless. Hence: if a man holds a position of responsibility for a long time, he tends to become less strict in his discipline.
No. 3504 in Bu me Bε by Peggy Appiah et al.
