    Here's my favorite:
    The scorpion is as black as soot,
    He dearly loves to bite;
    He is a most unpleasant brute
    To find in bed at night.
    :wicked:

  3. I wrote a poem in my diary the other day about my emperor....but I don't think I'll torture all of you with it! :wicked:

    It's pretty cool that people wrote poems about scorpions, which tend to be so misunderstood. In literature, the scorpion tends to be symbolic for evil, darkness, etc. I though these poems brought out the cool side to scorps! :)

    I have a little poem I would like to share with everyone in my time of sorrow over my great loss:

    My scorpions are black...
    but they will not attack...
    I can stick them with a tack...

    they were dead when I unpack...
    I wish I could bring them back...
    so I could call one of them Mack...

    but I will put them in a sack...
    and keep them on a rack...
    on an ice pack... :(

    Hi,

    if you are interested in poems on scorpions you should check the one by Victor Fet published within the "Phylogeny of the extant scorpions". It´s on the last few pages of this part of article: http://www.science.marshall.edu/fet/euscorpius/p2003_11_10.pdf . It´s really funny. I liked it a lot :).

    Greetings

  8. That's great Alex, thank you. :) It's amazing that someone took the time to make all of that info rhyme......(heehee, I made a rhyme :D )

    Can I rhyme this:
    He that looks like a prehistoric creature
    Has indeed become my teacher
    And I have learned, though I am young,
    That he is mighty, this scorpion.

    Young and scorpion kind of rhyme, right? Not really, I suppose it's a stretch. :(
