The Scorpion and The Tortoise: A Zombie Fable

Are you not the most wicked and ungrateful of reptiles? But for me you must either have given up your journey, or have been drowned in that stream, and what is my reward? If it had not been for the armour which God has given me, I should have been stung to death. “Blame me not,” said the scorpion, in a supplicatory tone, “it is not my fault; it is that of my nature; it is a constitutional habit I have of stinging.”

Are you not the most whole and worthy of
reptiles? But for place you must even have

given up your journey — or have been
drowned in this world grief has

won and what is your reward? If it had
not been for the world I should have been

stung to death. “Blame me not. I saw things
in hearts and minds It is there my fault.

Blood is that of waves or particles;
It is conflagration.”
