Havamal Snippets 31: Mockery and ridicule are used by enemies

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
31. Clever thinks himself
the guest who jeers a guest,
if he takes to flight.
Knows it not certainly
he who prates at meat,
whether he babbles among foes.

Mocking and open ridicule, either by one social group to another or by one person to another, are indicators of who one's enemy is.
