Poetry Tuesday: On the Advice of Praxilla

By the one and only Aristophanes of Byzantium, 257-180 BCE.

On the advice of Praxilla,
we are asked to look
under every stone
for a hiding scorpion.

The proverb sounds all right.
But, turning stones,
remember,
poets also bite.

Tell me what you think I need to know. . .
