Why Katydid is sitting on the belly.
Isn’t it natural that he is sitting on grass?
Autumn is severe season for the insect, because he has neither food nor hall
for surviving over winter.
If kaｔydid was Issa, who has neither house nor food ,stable income.
He is depending on sponsor’s support.
That means the belly. so to say, he depend on sponsor’s favors.
Life and death are
according to Master’s feeling.
