U stommacu e i peri

Esopu

U stommacu e i peri riscurrianu cu' era chiù forti, e i peri a diri ca, cuantu a forza, valianu tantu chiossai, ca u stommacu stessu si fashia purtari a spassu r'iddhi. "Cari mei, s' 'un ci fussi iu a darivi a manciari, sicuru nun fussivu 'n forza pi purtarimi", rissi u stommacu.

Accussì, mancu nta n'esercitu u numaru cunta, s' 'un ci sunnu capi cu shiriveddhu a postu.
