Tsumo - Shumo

Kana shumba ikashaya nyama
inodya uswa

If a lion fails to find meat it eats grass.

A hungry or desperate man is not choosy; he takes whatever comes his way.

Like the English proverb, "Beggars cannot be choosers."

-- Shona Proverb
From Tsumo - Shumo by Mordikai A. Hamutyinei and Albert B. Plangger
