The Boy Hunting Locusts (fable)

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!”
