Tók ek þeira hjörtu
selda ek þér síðan,
sagðag að kálfs væri;
einn þú því ollir
ekki réttu leifa,
trúðir vel jöxlum. (eddic or germanic)
(‘I took their hearts and roasted them on a spit,
gave them to you—told you they were calf-meat;
you made all this happen, you wouldn’t leave any scraps,
chewed it up greedily, trusting your back teeth.
