Once upon a time, a frog found on a small island
in the middle of the Limpopo in flood,
in the company of a Scorpion.
The water was swiftly lapping at this island
and soon the island would be entirely engulfed.
Mr Scorpion asked the Frog if he could ride
on his back to the safely of the distant shore.
"Well Mr Scorpion,"said the Frog," If I let you on my back,
surely you would sting me,after all
this is what scorpions do!
"Yes,but Mr Frog," replied the Scorpion,
"why would I do that,then I would die as I cannot swim".
The Frog was a generous soul so he allowed
the scorpion to climb on his back
and proceeded to swim to the shore.
Half the way there Mr Scorpion sees movement ahead,
a river snake has spotted the frog and sees a tasty food.
The Scorpion jumps off the frog
and lands on the river snake.
stinging the snake to save the frog.
The Frog thanks the Scorpion for as he sinks
into the depths with his tail still embedded in the snake.
"Thank you Mr Scorpion for saving my life", says the Frog,
"But now you yourself will die !"
The Scorpion gasped , " You helped me, now spread the word,
Even a scorpion can change!"
So can You and you.!
It takes one step,one change in thought,
a cold shower or a shoulder shaking.
You can change the world,save the world,
And recreate reality.
