Fable Aesop
The Boy Hunting Locusts
printer friendly version
A Boy was hunting for locusts. He had caught a goodly
number, when he saw a Scorpion, and mistaking him for a locust,
reached out his hand to take him. The Scorpion, showing his sting,
said: "If you had but touched me, my friend, you would have lost
me, and all your locusts too!"

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
