    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".

    Thanks Robert, I knew scorpion is with an O, but just messed it up. However, I did not know that about scorpio's.
