इतश्चेतश्च सुव्यग्रं व्यर्थमेवाभिधावति ।
दूराद्दूरतरं दीनं ग्रामे कौलेयको यथा ॥ २ ॥

itaścetaśca suvyagraṃ vyarthamevābhidhāvati |
dūrāddūrataraṃ dīnaṃ grāme kauleyako yathā || 2 ||

They rove about at random with ardour and without rest from one place to another, like the poor village dog running afar and wide in quest of food.
