    يركب الديكتاتوريون جيئة وذهابا على النمور التي لا يجرؤون على تفكيكها. والنمور تجوع.

    diktatorer kører frem og tilbage over tigre, som de ikke tør at afmontere. og tigrene bliver sultne.

    Diktatoren reiten auf Tigern hin und her, die sie nicht absteigen dürfen. und die Tiger werden hungrig.

    οι δικτάτορες οδηγούν και κινούνται πάνω σε τίγρεις τις οποίες δεν τολμούν να κατεβούν. και οι τίγρεις πεινούν.

    los dictadores cabalgan de un lado a otro sobre tigres que no se atreven a desmontar. y los tigres tienen hambre.

    دیکتاتورها بر روی ببرهایی سوار می شوند که جرات ندارند آنها را پیاده کنند. و ببرها گرسنه می شوند

    les dictateurs vont et viennent sur des tigres dont ils n'osent pas démonter. et les tigres ont faim.

    דיקטטורים רוכבים הלוך ושוב על נמרים שהם לא מעזים לרדת מהם. והנמרים נעשים רעבים.


    dictators rijden heen en weer op tijgers die ze niet durven te verlaten. en de tijgers krijgen honger.

    диктаторы ездят туда-сюда на тиграх, которых они не осмеливаются спешить. и тигры проголодались.
