the river was calm, but frog wasn’t

he was swimming in fear

but that couldn’t show

he neither swam fast or slow

a stead pace wins the race, don’t they always say?

this wasn’t a race yet he wished to hop away

as scorpion looked down the temptation rose

then flashbacks came and he suddenly froze

“promise not to let you down” he spoke

but his nature made his promise broke

and as he pierced frog below and gave in to temptation

frog looked up acknowledging damnation

with trembling eyes the frog asked “why?”

“its in my nature, i can’t even lie”

a trust made and decayed too soon

they both drown to meet their waterly tomb
