    Okay, i see everything that follows... but the syllable count is 12. Is this a haiku, I thought all haikus should read 17 syllables. I mean I should not even ask, you know all the haiku rules. thank you for responding...pd

    Interesting haiku. If you are referring to the venomous arachnid, then the word is correctly spelled "scorpion". In astrology, someone born under the sign of Scorpio (myself included) is termed a "Scorpian".
