This Persian fable tells the story of a scorpion who asks a frog to carry him across a river. The frog says he is afraid of being stung by the scorpion on the trip, but the scorpion argues that if he stings the frog, they would both die while crossing the river. The frog then agrees to carry the scorpion, but halfway through, it is stung. The frog asks why he did this and the scorpion responds by saying that it is something that is in his nature and there was nothing he could have done to change his fate.
