The Scorpion

Inspired by “The Scorpion” by Megadeth and the “The Scorpion and the Frog” fable…because the devil that we know and the human condition is often times more dangerous than anything we could ever imagine.


I am the lonely scorpion,

You knew my nature,

You knew my plan,

But, I am so much more,

For I am the plight of man.

  1. This is an incredibly strong piece and very well written. I love that you have pulled from this long forgotten fable! (Most people don’t recognize it when I have referenced it.) You have been able to capture the whole story, and tell one of your own, in a few cleverly chosen words.
