The Boy Hunting Locusts

: Aesop's Fables

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!"
